I know Tiny Speck released an official Glitch iOS app (Glitch HQ). It's nice, and I like it! In order to learn the API, I whipped up an iPhone app late last night using the iOS SDK. It's also using the sample app's background at the moment, but I'm working on putting together some new backgrounds that update based on what hub your Glitch is in.
The app updates in near real-time, showing you your current basic stats (xp, energy, mood, etc) as well as current location. Typically you'll see the location update before the Entering screen even finishes. (It's under the official rate limit too).
It also shows your avatar, and I have figured out how to render the sprite sheets. Whenever an update to your stats/location is made you will see your avatar walking. Otherwise an idle animation is made.
I am considering adding skill queueing, and the ability to keep a log of where your user has been. Still tinkering with ideas! I just started this last night, and really I'd love to get some feedback before I do much more!
Also note that the focus is on making it nice and easy to look at. Here's a little screencast...
