Cool Medialets Micro-App

My good friend Paul Barry and I have been helping our friends at Medialets out with a neat little Rails micro-app that culls iPhone App Store data from Apple's endless array of plists, and makes a chart, a dynamically-generated Gruff graph, and a bunch of RSS feeds.  

My favorite thing about this app is the New Apps RSS feed which lets me keep up with the newest time-wasters/productivity enhancers for the iPhone.  Let me take this opportunity to say that the world does not need any more iPhone tip calculators or fortune-telling games.

I wrote a bit more about the latest features over at the Medialets blog
