Announcing BitSpot.me - A website where you can view the current Bitcoin exchange rate in USD or BTC right next to the spot prices for precious metals.  

I tried to keep the user interface clean, simple, and easy to use.  Simply tap or click on a row to change the currency to BTC, and tap again to switch back to USD.  The page automatically updates all the values every 30 seconds.  The site should work well on the desktop but looks best on a mobile browser.  

The BTC price comes from MtGox but I will include more exchanges if this is a desired feature.

I also developed a BitSpot iOS app which is currently waiting for review in the iPhone App Store (it should take about a week).  If there's demand, I'll create an Android app too.

The domains BitPrice.me and BitSpotPrice.com also redirect to BitSpot.me so feel free to use any of those domains.

Thanks everyone, and please give me feedback/feature requests and report any bugs you encounter.

Edit: added screenshots

Hey everyone, just saw that Bitcoinity was down for a bit and I just want to let everyone know that the BitSpot servers cache the price, so if other sites like Bitcoinity are down and you need a place to check the price real quick, BitSpot should do the job.  The BitSpot server will continually retry MtGox's servers for the price until it gets it, and from what I'm seeing in my database logs the cached price hasn't been more than 10 mins out of date throughout today's DDoS, which isn't all that bad and is certainly better that no price info at all.

Thanks everyone!
