The non-profit built for "opening America's government" has created an app to show off its Congressional data, as well as its API (our Sunlight Labs API profile). You can't get this app on the web, though, as it's available exclusively for the Android phone platform.
Like Me Date Me is a new dating site built on top of the Facebook Graph API, which provides search-able access to user profile information. The service displays a photo and limited profile information of whichever gender you want to see. As the name of the site implies, users can "like" others, which can then lead to more interaction. The ratings approach, encouraging snap judgments, is similar to HotOrNot, which also added an option to meet the people you rate.
