App now listed in "What's Hot"

Korean Power Grid Info is selling like hotcakes (click for full screenshot)
A couple of days ago, before end of August, Korean Power Grid Info app for iOS devices surpassed 2,000 downloads. That took only about three weeks, and considering the somewhat obscure nature of the software, I think it's selling pretty well. It's consistently present in top 50 free downloads chart in the Business category. I think the word is going out somehow, and there's always quite a bit of people who download it every day.

Now, it seems that Apple has noticed this and put the app under "What's Hot" section of the Korea iTunes App Store's Business category. That's pretty hot! :-) I'm glad it's getting a favourable recognition. Thanks for everyone who downloaded.

Selected again - this time in US App Store

Recognized in the USA, too (Click to enlarge)
I suppose the Korean Power Grid Info app isn't particularly interesting to the people in the United States. The rank has been steadily moving down (started at 113, now at 160). Maybe I need to find a way to let the folks in the power grid business in the US know about the app? Still, at least I can take comfort in the fact that the app will nevertheless be staying on top of the Business category for a while. The Apple has selected it as "New & Noteworthy" for the US App Store, as well. Thanks for recognizing!

ADDENDUM 12:18 - The New & Noteworthy has added a few more apps and now my app is pushed out of the first page, although it's still in the list if 'See All' is clicked. Meanwhile, the visibility did apparently garnered some interest as the rank got boosted to #109 for now. Interesting...

ADDENTUM 17:38 - Hey, it's now #95. Finally broke into top 100! Pretty cool.

App selected as "New & Noteworthy"

Thank you for noticing! (Click for larger image)
Only into its third day of sale, Apple recognized the "Korean Power Grid Info" app and put it right on top of the Business category of the Korean App Store, listing it under "New & Noteworthy" section. It's doing okay on the popularity as well (peaked at #15 on the free apps in the category, and doing #16 as of this writing), so I hope a lot more people will notice and download the app for some time to come.

Meanwhile, the app is chugging along slightly below top 100 in the Business category in the US App Store. I'm guessing a few Koreans are downloading from there, which in turn keeps the rank up. An app review and listing site called PodGate is listing the app as one of the top 100 most popular. Rank floats around #92 to #98 so far.

First iPhone app now in App Store!

Korea Power Grid Info (대한민국 전력망 정보) listed in iTunes App Store

Three months of labouring has finally seen light. Apple has approved my first iPhone app and is now listed under 'Business' section of iTunes App Store worldwide. It's called "Korean Power Grid Info" - more info on or App Store. Folks who want to see how much Korea as a whole spends electricity in real-time should find this app useful.

FYI, the app is released under Korean Power Exchange instead of my name or because it represents the app best. All relevant data and information comes from there. gets a makeover Logo for 2010 website got a complete makeover, and moved the hosting to instead of a subpage in The old pages still exist, but are not actively linked anymore. Why the change? One reason is that the old one was languishing - it has been left as it is for about five years now. But of course, if there was nothing to add, there wouldn't have been much of a reason to overhaul it. So... you know what this means. A new application is coming up! And it's for iPhone, no less.

You can head over to the Products page at the new website to check out what's new. This new app called "Korea Power Grid Info" is a result of 4 months of self-teaching and 2 1/2 months of hair-pulling development. This app should be most useful to folks in the electric industry, but general users who has an interest in conserving electricity should take a look, as well.

The app is currently in the review process at Apple, and I hope it gets approved soon.
