It is used in a wide range of fields, but is best known as a language for Web Applications, because of the Ruby on Rails framework. The general purpose nature of Ruby makes it suitable for a wide array of programming tasks, just like Perl, Python and other general purpose languages. source - online

I will add it since nobody has said it yet besides the ROR web framework, Ruby also is used as a scripting language within the Metasploit open-source penetration testing framework. So if your curious about if that new security vulnerability will work on your PC, chances are good someone has written the exploit as a module; so anyone can test their own PC(or others w/ permission). Metasploit(msg) also has a really powerful password cracking capabilities, as well as getting shells on remote systems. Remember 2 hack only w/ consent or you might end up working 4 a government like the US that hates and fears the open mind!

Ruby is used for web applications. Specifically within a framework called 'Ruby on Rails' or ROR. ROR has a tagline called'convention over configuration' which means there are some conventional steps that you have to follow and your web app will be up and running within minutes and it will save you from the long coding that is required for web development as rails automatically does it for you. It has plenty of resources online so you would have no problem implementing it.

Some people uses Ruby for game development, which is suitable for 2D games. Using Visual Ruby or TK (or something) you can create form applications easily. I guess the real answer is up to you.

Ruby is used in the ROR framework for Web Applications, but ROR is only a framework. Ruby is a powerful general purpose scripting language.
