Personal Statusboard

I came across this great app (http://panic.com/statusboard/) a few months ago and have used it to build a personal status board for my iPad. My statusboard currently consists of:

I have some more things I would like to do when I get a chance:

  • New – Countdowns to next holiday or other events
  • New – Running training tracker – Using the runkeeper api.
  • Improve – Train RSS feed to only show items relevant to me items
  • Improve – Tube RSS feed to only show items relevant to me
  • New – To Do list – Using toodledo api.
  • Improve – World clock – Add time of day icons
  • Improve – Server Status – Add time since last seen

I will also update this post with links to articles on the items I wrote myself for those who are interested.
