As mentioned by The Guardian.
In the App StoreTM - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tennisdata/id519054852?mt=8
The new version is out. The look of the app has been made much cleaner. The results have a slight color change for every other line to enhance readability.
Under Players, there is now a Rankings option. This will show the player's most current ranking (based on results - if a player has just been playing Challenger or Futures unless they're in the Top 200, their ranking will not be for the current week), his career high ranking, the date he first entered the Top 100 and the date he first entered the Top 10. Also, a Defend Points query; this returns the result and points earned (if any) for the same week last year.
Under Tournament Results, the Full Results for a Year has been upgraded to show the ranking of the players in addition to the seeding. Also under Tournament Results is a Tournament Entrants option. For the selected year, all the players, their seeding and ranking, will be displayed. Like the other data, this is based on current results. This means that the list is being 'built' as the tournament progresses - and won't be complete until all players have played at least 1 match. For tournaments where no seeds receive byes this will be after the 1st round; otherwise after the 2nd.
In the coming months the ranking info will be incorporated into other match results. There will also be enhancements to the tiebreak data.
What is the tennisdata app?
This app is an incredible source of tennis statistics for the ATPTM. Stats by player, tournament, and all up tour stats. There are over 58,000 matches - all ATP tour events and
world group Davis Cup matches - back to 1998 covering all today's stars
(and the entire careers of the recently retired - Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Moya,
Ljubicic). Over 160,000 ranking data points, for over 1500 players who have appeared on the Tour. This app brings Big Data to tennis.
The app prompts the user to select
the player or tournament, the type of query, and the required
information (year, seed, etc.). The app sends
the request to the 'cloud' (our
server) - the data is then sent back to the iPhone and displayed. From
anywhere in the world, in seconds you can
have access to the stats for any
player or tournament. The staff updates the server daily with the
latest match results - and because the data is in
the cloud, you don't have to constantly update the app to receive the latest results.
What kind of Player stats can I get?

app works like your iPhone. The list of players and tournaments is just
like your Contacts - select a letter on the right side to go to that
section of the list.
The results can be scrolled, zoomed, and panned.
For a selected tournament, you can
find all the past winners, round by round, full results, win/loss by a
seed at that tournament.
The app can display the tournament
winners by year, by country, tournament wins by seed, all up
wins/losses by seed. And now, Top 10's (updated weekly) for Wins in the
current year, Total Tournament Wins, W/L % after winning 1st set for
career, W/L % after losing 1st set for career.
The app stores no personal data; you're a fan of tennis and the greatest athletes in the world - that's all we need to know.
