I think it definitely needs a tutorial or walkthrough of some sort. I only ever get dodgy looking words that aren't memorable in any sense, in fact would be extremely difficult to say over the phone. I am guessing it's the way I'm using it but I don't know any better! :)
Sorry to hear that. There actually is a tutorial/guide referenced a bit lower on the page but not many people seem to see it, may need to emphasize it more!
Maybe try the basic word maker to make words starting with 'arb,' 'orb' or 'mar'? I've found the words those generate are fairly nice as an idea for what it can do. Also maybe try shorter words?
Dunno. To be honest, having used the other name generation tools, this is the one I'd use to get a new domain name and a good amount of people have found names they like through Namebird (someone put in starts with 'pay' and got paydrow for instance and I used it to name itself too :P).
It looks like a really good tool if (and I'm assuming it does for others) it works nicely, I'm just missing that moment of 'click' right now where I grasp how it works. Going by what you've said I think I was more using it as "here's a word, do more with it please website robot" - I'll have another play! :)

Exporting from Delicious into Pinboard was done in a few minutes.
Pinboard is just like Delicious but faster and more responsive, I am willing to pay $10.61 for that.
And I actually paid for archive option not because I particularly need it but because I like the idea of supporting a lean one person operation.
Only thing Pinboard is missing(just like Delicious is missing) is quick filling in of suggested tags.
Also, for some reason Pinboard suggests IFTTT tag almost every time. I only use IFTTT sparingly.
Not sure of their exact traffic but it's pretty popular.
It's the same formula SleepyTime uses, in a mobile friendly format.
Math pastebin with LaTeX/HTML/Markdown mashup.
Many people use it for one-on-one meetings like office hours. But you can make any kind of signup sheet you can imagine. Very geek friendly UI.

Nice tool to convert css into scss, a bit like http://js2coffee.org (which has probably even more audience)
Would be nice to see css2compass as a node module like js2coffee does, we should tweet the author about this.
Very usefull tool. I dont know the analytics for those, but I use them almost everyday ;)

100k monthly uniques? 1 million? 10 million?
In many regions of the world, navigation devices only locate a fraction of buildings by their street address.
Naymit lets you mark, share and find exact locations.
Used by over 50,000 internet marketers every month.
A really simple Rails CRUD app where 90% of the time was spent inputting data and making it look nice. We average about 500 daily uniques and pay for it purely by advertising revenue (lol - "revenue"). It pays for itself and is a nice resume-booster.
For those apps that are useful on mobile, what advantage would they gain by being developed as mobile apps? In their current states they work on nearly every system commonly in use in the world, including all of the popular mobile platforms.
which, you know, with scrums, kind of makes sense
url shortener with builtin support for google analytics link tagging utm parameters. time saver for marketers creating tracking links for google analytics.
Easily create custom maps showing distances, areas, points/pins, heatmaps...
According to their Twitter, their API serves more than 1 billion requests per month.
Probably not a large audience but very useful: one mouse click and you are listening music.
As with Pinboard, it became popular in the vacuum following the implosion of a large, centralized service.
http://www.music-map.com has about 100k monthly users.
300K users per month, 600K in June and November, mainly Chilean teachers.
>You mean how do people find out about these apps?
Even five years ago, the global programming community wasn't that large. If someone built something small and useful, and they promoted it in their local community (like at a LUG, Perl Mongers, other meetup) they gained decent usage and exposure.
You also have places such as Chrome Web Store and Firefox OS Marketplace
Not really a large audience. :)
"You are 706.93 miles away from Ebola at Emory University Hospital! Stay safe!"
It's probably the only example I can conceive of existing, too, since it's in a pretty unique position of being cheap to serve and indefinitely funded (hence not under pressure to grow, monetize, or advertise to cover costs).
