I think there’s HUGE potential for “Live” Fields, enabled via corporate partnerships.

Imagine a Tracking Number field that live-updates via native sync with FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS, etc.

Or a Stock Price/BI field that’s synced to Bloomberg, NASDAQ, etc.

Or a partnership with Salesforce… Google Analytics… Etc.

+1 Really great Idea. I would definitifly need to use it for :

  • Currency exchange rate
  • Tracking Number of item purchased Item (From suppliers to my business)
  • Date & Time of a specific region in the world
  • Phone or internet embeded GPS module for GPS location
  • If I can fetch a data from a URL I would also use it for a costum cloud data (For exemple in IoT, the real time/almost real time status or data)
