Like every other nerd, when [Panic teased about Status Board back in 2010](https://www.panic.com/blog/2010/03/the-panic-status-board/) I really wanted to get my hands on it. I had absolutely nothing to use it for, but sometimes you just must have pretty things. Status Board, the iOS app is indeed very pretty.

That first day though, I had nothing to put on it. Now, just a little while later, there are tons of panels that one can add — [Viticci has a collection of them here][2].

The best of the lot is the work done on the [Mint integration][3].

What’s more fascinating to me is the allowance for CSV files in the app. I tried this out and it works as expected. Ideally I would like more control over different aspects of the CSV display, but it is indeed a quick and pretty way to display data.

I am not sure if I will ever find a place where Status Board becomes a real tool for me, but that’s certainly not going to stop me from trying — because it’s an app you *want* to use.
