Anyone know of an app that tracks the number of times an app is opened? I got a zillion apps and would like to prune the ones that just clutter up my iPhone/iPad. I'm strictly looking for a number, NOT the time spent using an app although that might be helpful as well

If nothing of this sort is available, I think it would be BIG winner for us addicted "I got to try that app crowd".

Luckily, Apple tracks some data, it's hidden in this menu:
