Based on that definition, you have the following application snapshot, 
most of which I posted yesterday as part of this discussion/debate:

Some of our applications:

1. http://ode.openlinksw.com -- OpenLink Data Explorer (purpose: to 
enable you consume, produce, share, and generally exploit Linked Data 
from a myriad of sources) via any browser

2. http://linkeddata.uriburner.com -- a public service that produces 
5-Star Linked Data from a plethora of data sources (i.e., RDF and non RDF)

3. http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com -- Virtuoso Middleware  that 
facilitates the above and is exposed as a collection or URL patterns 
(you can instantiate your via the Amazon cloud or install your own compy 
locally) it also has this all baked into its SPARQL query processor

4. http://web.ods.openlinksw.com -- Personal Data Space solution (you 
can also instantiate your own via Amazon Cloud or install locally) which 
enables you build your own data data space endowed with sophisticated 
data access policies etc.

5. http://id.myopenlink.net/certgen -- an x.509 certificate generator 
that includes WebID watermarking re. Web-scale verifiable identifiers 
based on the WebID+TLS or WebID authentication protocol (critical for 
fine-grained data access policies e.g., for controlling resource access 
via social relationship semantics comprehension) ; there's a mobile 
edition currently on its way to the Apple store too .

1-4 have been in existence for many years and are in use across our 
customer base.

Some DBpedia client applications/services, from others:

1. http://www.aboutthisday.com/
2. http://www.visualdataweb.org/semlens.php
3. http://en.lodlive.it/
4. http://dbpedia.oobian.com/
5. http://semanticreports.com/ -- Graphity .

NLP related:

1. https://github.com/dbpedia-spotlight/dbpedia-spotlight
2. http://spaziodati.eu/home/
3. http://www.alchemyapi.com/
4. http://extractiv.squarespace.com/
5. Yahoo! Entity Extractor -- see Yahoo! APIs (they actually produce 
Linked Data URIs for extracted Entities via LOD cloud lookups) .

Folksonomy & Tagging related:

1. http://poolparty.biz/

Music related:

1. http://seevl.net/ .

GWAP (Game with a purpose):

1. 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.cefriel.swa.urbanopoly.client.game&hl=en



There are many more, I just typed this out of my head, so forgive any 
obvious omissions.

Others: please use this opportunity to share links to information about 
your Linked Data consumers. Even better, publish Turtle documents 
describing your Linked Data apps.
