Day 23: Status Board
This post is part of a larger series where for 31 days I’m posting a story about a particular product or service I’ve come to enjoy.
Status Board is an iOS app from Panic that lets you turn an old iPad into a visual collection of actionable data.
Like all Panic software the app itself is incredibly well put together. New in version 2 you can have multiple boards, wallpapers, photo panels and more. You can even output the status board to a TV to make a large status board (as seen from Panic itself):
While I love having my own old(er) iPad show me status, my biggest complaint, and warning for people interested, is that the default panels provide very basic data and you are more than likely going to have to do some work to get the good numbers out of your system of interest and in into their format. Panic does link to various third parties that can help but I still feel like more could be done to support the community.
Status Board is a free download from the App Store with an in-app purchase to unlock all the panels for $10.
