CL Buddy 2.6
Even though the program's functionality is compressed in only one window, the possibilities it opens up are appreciated.
And since there is no options menu or button, no customization can be done to the interface either. But the simplicity of the graphical interface does not cut into the usefulness of application.
Keeping track of multiple URLs
A practical feature of CL Buddy is the history drop-down menu, which allows you to quickly find previous URLs you have tracked. The application can record up to 10 items in the history menu, and you can select any of these to keep track of them again.
When the history list seems a little crowded with URLs you no longer need tracking, you can easily clear everything.
Instant notifications via text messages or e-mails
There are two ways the application can announce you of the new posts or replies on the watched URLs. The simplest one is via e-mail. You can specify a valid e-mail address to which the application will send notifications.
You can opt to receive the full new message and every available information via e-mail, including a link to the actual post.
The second way of notifying you is via text messages. The message is usually read faster, since almost everyone carries their cellphone with them. The only downside is that the application supports only a few specific mobile carriers.
From the main menu of the application, you can set the program to check up on the watched websites as frequently as 5 minutes and as far apart as 4 hours.
CL Buddy is a simple and reliable application for monitoring new replies and posts submitted on specific websites, in order to instantly notify you via e-mail or text message.
