If you were an early iPhone adopter, you may be able to remember a time when, at the beginning, the only apps it had were Safari, YouTube, Google Maps, and I think a calculator. Now there are more apps than there are dogs in the United States, or at least it seems that way. If you’re a developer, how’re you supposed to know where you stand in a field that crowded? What you need is an app for your app.
Ranky for iPhone is a $3 application that gives developers a real-time snapshot of where their app ranks in the iTunes store, overall or for its specific category. You can compare ranks for any country in which it’s available, and you can even look up listings for iPad and the Mac App Store. The only drawback is you’ve got to be in the top 300 for Ranky to show your exact rank. At least you’ve got something to aspire to.
