One of the toughest parts of starting a decent software site is having enough content and the ability to consistently grow. A few services out there can sell you a fully populated database, but I feel that they are cost-prohibitive and offer no promise of continued growth. Now, considering that the list of PAD XML is free - you should be able to get a pretty good site by listing a few select categories (for example, make an iPod software site). The sad truth is, it would take a very long time to import even a hundred PAD XML files manually (at first, this is what I tried - and trust me you don't want to go there, let my program do the tedious work for you).
"Auto PAD Submit" was written specifically to populate a PADKit enabled website databases. It programmatically goes through a list of PAD file URLs, automatically populating your website's database. Configuration control over many aspects of automatic submission including Blacklisted Domains.
