    Hi all,

    My application was just approved after 2 months of compromises with Apple. It's a performance benchmarking tool that can compare the performance of one device vs. another. It can also calculate pi to millions of digits, graph the mandelbrot fractal, and find a list of prime numbers for you, as extras.

    I'd like to see how my app scores certain devices. My iPod touch 1G gets about 100 running 2.2.1 and 92 running 3.0. I'd like to find some patterns for performance on different devices, so if anyone could do me a favor and get the app (only 99 cents), run the test, then post the score your device receives here, I'd really appreciate it. Also, if you could, post the version your device is running, e.g. 2.2.1 or 3.0.1, as well as your device, like iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 2G.

    By the way, I had to make it appear not to be a benchmarking tool, because Apple didn't want comparisons between their different devices, so some of the GUI is a little stupid right now, and I have a notification that comes up telling the user that this is for entertainment purposes only, but don't mind that. It all works, and I have an update in for approval that should put everything back to normal.

    Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate it. And if you want to give it five stars and maybe a nice review...:D

    Here is the link to iTunes:
    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=324905769&mt=8&s=143441

    BTW, the app is called Gauge

    Sorry, I really didn't mean to spam. Should this be in a different sub-forum?

    I didn't take it as spam. However, you'd probably get some responses if you gave some promo codes away.

    Wow, kind of rude. You should be telling us about your app this is not spamming.

    Can you give us more information about the app because the link doesn't work.

    These apps take quite a bit of time to develop. The people who create them deserve to make some money for their time. Not all apps will appeal to each of us, and that's fine, but cut these people a break. Many of them bring us fine products, which I for one really appreciate.

    Thanks a lot for your wanting to help.

    Here's the real link:
    http://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjec...ftware%3Fid%3D324905769%26mt%3D8%26s%3D143441

    Also, I have one promo code to give out here. Please, to the person who uses it, could you use something besides an iPod touch 1G, since I already know how that does on the test.

    Here's the promo code:
    9EMHYTH6673K

    The full app name is Gauge Mathematical Tool, a niche product, I'll admit.

    The problem for me is that he wants us to buy an app to help him out. That's the way I read the post at least.

    I'll try it. I've actually been looking for something like this, since the touch doesn't have everywhere internet.

    Actually, apps like flashlights and ifarts are very easy to develop...

    I like it. It's simple. I suppose it has somewhat limited use, but dude... I can read out Pi at work for hours. Oh the paper clips will be flying at me tomorrow.

    Thanks. And in the second tab, on the right, could you try running the benchmark test, called "Gauge." It takes about 1 minute at most. Tell me what score your device gets, and what kind of device you have, e.g. iPhone 3GS or iPod touch second generation.

    Appreciate it.
