notification application idea

recently i was working on long running service and i wanted to be informed on progress. i’ve done some research and i’ve ended up using Boxar. however im not fully satisfied with that solution as it requires registration and is depended on their service. i was thinking about universal solution, where you can have nicely design mobile/desktop app what will be able to subscribe to any server by using default protocol.

idea:

  • iphone,
  • OSX app in navigation bar what will show me little messages + notification centre

setup in app:

  • subscribe to any feed url
  • option to set refresh frequency for each feed

report when feed url is down – error

simple API

i can see potential use in server monitoring, magento monitoring and other kind of monitorings. if anyone knows about such application, or if anyone is willing to build it, please let me know.
