We’ve actually idly chatted about such things in the Open MPI community for a while.  It would be tremendously fun to write an iPhone/Android app that could talk to an MPI implementation and/or application.  Perhaps a good starting point would be to have the MPI implementation talk to an iPhone/Android phone.

Indeed, a simple first feature might well be push notifications when an MPI job completes. Open MPI supports “notifier” plugins  that exactly fit this use-case scenario.  We just need someone to write a notifier that sends an iPhone/Android push notification.

Any takers?  Ping me; I’d be happy to point you in the right direction.
