I have my iPad sitting on my desk near my monitor. I was wondering if anyone knew of an app that would run and show me a clock, weather, rss, email etc. Any one have any suggestions?

Thanks!

You could use Air Display or MaxiVista and use the iPad as another monitor. The beta version of the Windows Air Display software came out 2 days ago so it works for both Mac and Windows.

As for what you're asking, Apple will not approve such an app. MyFrame used to include Twitter as well as being a photo frame, clock and weather but it got pulled from the app store for being a desktop replacement. It was resubmitted and approved without Twitter support.

There are some all in one apps in the App Store but I think none of them show you E-mail info or RSS:

Desktop (http://itunes.apple.com/app/desktop/id364733732?mt=8#)
DeskAgent (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/deskagent-time-weather-music/id367298125?mt=8)

Or as mentioned in the previous post, MyFrame (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-frame/id364532249?mt=8)

The correct answer is: Emerald Observatory ($0.99)
