A patent application describes how the Apple Watch and iPhone could work together to detect medical emergencies like a heart attack, and automatically call 911.

While the patent wording doesn’t specifically name either the Apple Watch or iPhone, the meaning of one electronic device cooperating with another one seems pretty clear.

An occurrence of one or more “care events” is detected by an electronic device monitoring environmental data and/or user data from one or more sensors. The electronic device transmits one or more alerts regarding the detected occurrence to at least one other electronic device. In some cases, the electronic device may cooperate with at least one other electronic device in monitoring, detecting, and/or transmitting.

Panic was kind enough to allow us a preview of its app, and needless to say, we liked what we found.

The Oregon-based software company is largely known for their OS X FTP client Transmit, but entered the iOS space in April 2011 with the launch of Prompt, their SSH client for iPhone and iPad, followed by their affectionately named web editor Diet Coda this past May. This marks the third year in a row that Panic has released an entirely new app on the iOS platform.

Panic’s Status Board iPad app starts rolling out around the world

Popular app developer Panic’s new Status Board application for iPad has begun rolling out around the world. We’ve spotted it in the Australia iTunes Store and in some other regions. Update: Now available in the U.S. Store. 

Use the easy built-in panels to automatically see data about your life: calendar, tweets, e-mail, weather, news, and more. Or, use the pro panels, Graph and Table, with your own customized data sources, to see relevant data about your business or organization.

Based on the App Store description and screenshots, it appears that this application is sort of like a “dashboard” for your iPad’s display.

The app allows you to add clocks, weather, your calendar, new emails, Twitter updates, and feed headlines, according to the App Store description.

In Australia, the app is priced at $10.49. This translates to $9.99 in the U.S. store.

We will have a full review up when the application is available in the U.S. iTunes Store.

Update: The app is out, here’s our full review.
