Listen instead

Late last night during an email exchange with one of our savvy users, it was suggested that we provide an iCal feed of CalendarBudget data. iCal is a calendaring format which can be consumed by calendar programs such as those on mobile devices and other calendaring software.

This could be a way for us to easily get onto mobile devices before we planned to. It also addresses some previous requests to combine regular calendaring items and financial information.

Imagine it – you are looking at your calendar events for the day and you also see your balance (as an “All Day” activity) and transactions that occur that day as timed entries (perhaps timed for 11:59 pm so they are last on your list. It could be really convenient.

I’d love to hear some feedback on the idea and how it may be used.
