Status Board

Panic has released Status Board:

Status Board takes your data and gives it meaning. Use the easy built-in widgets. Or massage your data for our Graph and Table widgets. It’s going to be awesome.

Like every other nerd, when Panic teased about Status Board back in 2010 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.

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

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.
