Tumblr Cloud was one of my first viral applications. The original version was extremely simple, it just made an image of your top words. Since then it has really evolved into a full fledged application. Tumblr Cloud was one of the first applications to use Tumblr's new OAuth protocol
The index page is pretty simple and straight forward.
One of the hardest things about making an easy to use application is the UI, I spent a good amount of time figuring out how to offer all the features I wanted and keep it simple to use.
Once you generate a cloud something like this gets posted to your tumblelog
You will also be redirected to a page that looks like this, it showcases your cloud, and shows the users you reblog the most, and suggests similar clouds.
Every user gets a page that showcases their past clouds they generated
When you search something the results show matching users and related clouds
Tumblr Cloud is featured on Tumblr's third party application page
