Websites change and sometimes you want to know when that happens and in particular when something appears on it. Ballpoint is a URL listener and when that happens it'll push you a notification that it happened.
A typical use case might be that you're interested in a particular website that publishes special deals. You know that they generally update their website at midnight on a Monday so you want particular attention paid at around about that time. Ballpoint will monitor the website looking for a particular deal and then should it appear it will notify you.
Some websites require authentication and ballpoint handles that too.
