Shaun Running That Town

There’s a new iOS app by the Australian Bureau of Statistics called “Run That Town”. The premise is instead of just saying “I could run this town better” – you can actually try it. Using real census data, you can try running any town in Australia to determine if you actually can make a difference.

So why mention it? Because it’s narrated by Shaun of course! (see here) It’s not the first time he’s done work for the ABS, with the pre-census spotlight website. (still online too!)

It’s looks quite slick, but as I don’t have any iDevices, I haven’t played it. Please post comments if you have!

  1. I have ipod 4th gen and it works, and it’s an awesomely addictive game, but it keeps crashing after about five minutes of playing!
    I got it on my ipad and it doesn’t even work on there. It may be because i have hardly any free space, or it needs a bug fix.

    I love Shaun’s commentry, and how he patronises you when you’re doing terribly!
