World Bank Finances app: For development gurus, or just the curious

World Bank Group Finances
Not just for gurus on world development

It seems like an app only wonks could love, but anyone who’s in town for the World Bank Group’s annual meetings this weekend — or just curious about how the organization spends its money — may want to download this one. It gives a comprehensive view of ongoing and recently closed projects and is part of a greater push from the World Bank Group to offer more transparency. It also gives users a way to report data and give feedback to the World Bank Group.

The app, which is available in nine languages (including English), offers maps of projects as well as search tools to help you find the ones that interest you. Free, for Android and iOS devices.
