This is one of the coolest little apps I’ve seen in awhile. Simply start your render in Final Cut Pro, Color, Avid, or Compressor; open the app and get an email when your render’s done!
The coolest aspect of this app is the ability to send text messages via email, which I think is way more convenient than an email. Especially if you’re using the rendering time to do things away from the computer. BTW, if you have your smartphone set to notify you EVERY time you get an email, you really need to turn that off. I guarantee you that no successful CEO uses that feature and neither should you. Anyway, when you open the app, it lists the email addresses for all the major US cell phone providers. For example, sending a text to an AT&T customer via email is email@example.com
One downfall is that you have to set up email on your editing computer for this to work. Most edit stations are company computers and not your personal property, so the Mail app isn’t usually set up. A simple work around is to create a Gmail account (or an email address at your company) specifically for this use. Such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Then set up that account on Mail on all the edit systems in your office.
Enjoy your new found freedom!
