Uncle Sam’s Debt Clock


Uncle Sam’s Debt Clock is an iOS app inspired by the National Debt Clock near Times Square.

We strive to make it the most accurate and up-to-date debt clock on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch by having it download and cache historical data directly from the U.S. Treasury and the U.S. Census Bureau.  If no network connection is available, it works in offline mode using the most recently cached data (or, worst-case, the pre-installed data).

A real-time estimate of the national debt and debt-per-resident is extrapolated based on the last 60 days of historical data, so it is always current without being too sensitive to short-term fluctuations.
