ABS Stats Loads Your iPhone or iPad With Major Australian Statistics

iOS: If you're a statistics geek, this is mobile manna. The official Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) iOS app includes customisable key economic indicators, the ability to search 2011 census data by postcode for information on general demographics, and a constantly updated population projection for Australia.

The app also includes links to key sections of the ABS web site and its social media accounts. For in-depth drilling, the site is still going to be your main resource (and on a tablet, statistics are pretty accessible), but this is a handy addition for basic data without hunting through the online version. One neat trick: you can access census data for your current location.

ABS Stats is a free download for iOS devices.

    So the ABS can get there own app, but still waiting for a awesome one from BOM

      Try pocket weather Chris, it draws it's resources from BoM and has all the stuff I need like temps, radar and lush notifications for weather alert.

        Weatherzone trumps it easily for features and layout.

    + 1 for Pocket Weather. Great app and really good value.

    Apparently the ABS app is not available on the Australian iTunes store

      Funny because I just downloaded it.
