I'm a big fan of Continuous Integration and automated builds. So much so that today I released Hudson Helper, a native iPhone and iPod Touch application for monitoring your Hudson continuous integration engine.

Hudson Helper has a simple interface that gives you what you need to know first. Offline data caching helps to minimize network bandwidth and makes it work when the network is unavailable. Includes job status, health and build trends.

Build status display adapts to your project to report on build health including JUnit test results, Clover coverage, findbugs and any other Hudson build report plug-ins your project is running.

To get started all you need to do is point Hudson Helper at the URL of your build server. You can get Hudson Helper by searching for 'Hudson Helper' in the app store, or click here to get it with iTunes.
