Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I noticed the StackExchange button at the top-left of the screen which (on refresh) tells me everything that's going on as pertaining to me around the various sites. Is there anyway for me to get those notifications on my desktop or mobile device? If not, is there anyway for me to create that kind of app?

I believe you're looking for Stackapps, the SE site dedicated to the SE API and the apps created with it. I'm pretty sure there is already an existing app to display notifications to the desktop.

Ah here's one. And if you're a Gnome guy, here's another.

Thank you very much, Is there any documentation on said API? – JustinKaz Jan 13 '11 at 17:42
However do you have one that shows just "my" notifications? – JustinKaz Jan 13 '11 at 17:48
@Justin: However do you have one that shows just "my" notifications? Why don't you look? I gave you the link to the site. – John Jan 13 '11 at 18:29
