Minion is the easiest way to monitor long running tasks on your Mac. Just tell it what to look for and Minion notify you via notification, SMS, email or iOS push notifcation when the job is done from that device. It'll notify you about:

- When a file appears, disappears, or changes.
- When a folder's content changes.
- When a pixel on screen changes.
- When the text on a web page changes.
- When a window on your Mac changes.
- lots, lots more!

Minion is great for:

Video Exports
Set Minion to notify you when your video export is complete by monitoring the progress bar or the video output file.

Animation Renders
