Dragon's Breath

A MacOS X menu bar notifier for Dragon Go Server messages.


  • Shows a menu bar indicator when you have moves to make (similar to the Twitter app's blue bird, but with a mini Go board and no blue).
  • Supports Growl notifications for new messages.
  • Refreshes every five minutes (rather than once an hour, which is the delay for DGS email notifications), or whenever you ask for a refresh. Use less time for each move!
  • Lets you jump directly to the game page for a waiting move.
  • Launches automatically on login.
  • Provides shortcuts to other commonly-visited DGS pages.


The initial stable release is finished and I've submitted it to the Mac App Store (it's in review). If you'd like to give it a try, you can download v1.0.0, drop it in your Applications folder, and run it. Feedback would be great.
