Free 2010 US Census Browser App for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Census 20102 Census 2010

@andytrice let me know that he has released his slick web app for the 2010 US Census demographics data for the BlackBerry PlayBook. According to Andy the app is packaged using WebWorks for the PlayBook and was created to “showcase enterprise-class data visualization in apps using HTML-based technologies.” It definitely does that with some cool effects on the PlayBook. You can even check it out on your PC at but it is more touch optimized.

The app lets you view age distribution, racial distribution, as well as household/non-household information for any county or major metropolitan area within a state.   When viewing any of the charts, you can scroll the view by swiping up, and you will reveal a table showing all of the underlying data. All in all it shows how easy it is to take data and visualize it using web technologies on multiple platforms. So far the web app has been ported to iOS, Android, PlayBook, and the Kindle Fire.

The code for the project is released under the Modified BSD License and you can find more details on the project homepage. Otherwise feel free to give it a spin by downloading it from App World.
