June 2013 - Think you could do a better job than your local council?

Fancy trying your hand at being a town planner?

A new iPhone App called Run That Town has been designed and released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Made with real census data and the option to use your own postcode, it opens up the world of town planning to anyone with a smart phone.

Run that Town gives you the option to reject or approve an array of different fictional planning proposals. It gives both positive and negative options from locals and in the end the final decision is yours.

If your decisions pleases the locals your popularity soars meaning you are playing the game right.
