This is a WebApp designed to be used on the iPhone and the iPod Touch that let's users view the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard 200 on their device, and touch any item to view it on the iTunes Store, where you can listen to a 30 second preview of the song and buy it.
If so, please consider leaving a tip with PayPal to help us penniless students keep coding!

I selected one of the items but was taken to the wrong thing on iTunes, what happened?
The iTunes store links are automatically retrieved by the server, and then later manually checked for accuracy. It is possible that an incorrect link may have been missed, or that the link you clicked had not yet been checked. If you are certain a link has brought you to the wrong item, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning what you selected that took you to the wrong place.
Why do you only have the top 40?
It fits nicest in Mobile Safari, and keeps loading times reasonable. Also, it's the amount played by radio stations.
Can I use the site on a normal computer?
Yes feel free, but it will most likely only render correctly in the Safari web browser.
