OECD Factbook 2010 for iPhone

By Amy West | August 2, 2010

The OECD has created an iPhone app for the OECD Factbook

From the site “The OECD Factbook App presents 100 economic indicators in a format specially designed for your iPhone. Now, wherever you are, you have easy access to a comprehensive statistical picture of the world’s major economies from the most reliable source: OECD.

The OECD Factbook is organised around 12 themes such as population and migration, macroeconomic trends, and globalization. Each indicator includes a table showing the latest available data for the 30 OECD countries. When available, it also shows data from countries with which the OECD has close co-operation such as Brazil, Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa.”

Additional features are the price: free and the French-language version.  I’ll be curious to see how this application is used - the best thing about users is that they almost always surprise you with the way they use the tools available to them.
