    http://iphonelb.com/ is a great free site for iPhone leaderboarding, wondering if anyone knows how to display their scores on the actual phone...

    I would start by reading the stuff on the front page, but that's just me.

    To display the highscores, just create a webviews that displays whatever link leads to the scoreboard.

    Personally, I'd recommend just writing your own highscore table. That one doesn't match UDID and thus fails. It is also super open to cheating, as anyone can just take your app key that they provide and submit a highscore outside of your app (as simple as typing in a web address).

    If you do make your own, you can also poll the database for results to give the user somehing that actually matters: ther ranking on the highscore board. What you linked to does not allow for that (but only because it's impossible with their system).

    The price? It'a free because it fails.
