You can build great apps with any DB of your choice, or without any DB. You can also build crappy apps with or without the help of a DB

I just built an app in which you can visually create and model data (think visio in a web browser). It would have been impossible to do in a perfomant manner with a relational database. And I think it is a very cool application

I actually have 2 great apps for Neo4j.

One is a "bidding" app where you have a group of people bidding for resources where multiple people can claim a resource, but only up to a limit. It's designed to allow certain bidders priority and thereafter to be first-come/first serve.

The other is a project where I'm cross-linking similar systems and want to pass resource ownership between them.
 
My favorite is a chocolate cupcake with white frosting and tiny ad sprinkles.
