Status Board for iPad

While I love my iPad, during the work day, it often sits on my desk, off. The guys over at Panic Software are trying to change that, with their new app for Apple’s tablet.

Status Board for iPad is a new $10 iPad app that takes the concepts of widgets and the OS X dashboard and brings it to the iPad.

The app offers tons of built-in tools for graphing Twitter data, emails, calendar events and more, but Panic is showcasing 3rd-party apps that can tie in to the system. There is an in-app purchase for HDMI out and AirPlay support. While that’s a little lame, being able to show this kind of data on a TV could be very useful.

Check it out on the iOS App Store, and if you need more convincing, check out Federico Viticci’s review.
