App Store Apex
Introducing App Store Apex: an awesome visualization of what's hot on Apple's App Store!
I want to see it in action
Just head to apex.applidium.com !
What does it do?
Apex retrieves the global app ranking from Apple and creates a nice HTML layout from it. Actually, it creates an animated slideshow with the 10 most downloaded apps, and displays the following ones in the background as a mosaic.
You can change the actual RSS feed being used. Just head to Apple's RSS generator, and pick whichever suits you. Then pass it in the URL, like this :
Keep two things in mind when customizing your Apex:
- First, you should URL-escape equal signs in your feed's URL!
- Second, if you only include the top 10 apps in the feed, the background will be black.
