"National Debt" provides insight into the national debts of more than 180 countries! It shows the development of the national debt in real-time, and provides an overview of the year-to-year historical development of the debt. The app has the option to display the debt as percentage of the gross national product, and show this result on a comprehensive World Debt Map!
To put the large numbers of the national debt into perspective, the app shows what you would have been able to buy with the national debt (e.g. find out how many Iraq Wars is equivalent to the national debt). You can adapt and specify your own items in this list.
The app also shows how long it would take to pay off the debt when paying a given amount per day, and shows the debt as percentage of the gross national product.
The data is based on official numbers provided by the governments and are updated on a regular basis.

Ratings and Reviews
The debt levels of many developed economies are at record highs at a time when the yield on their sovereign bonds are at record lows. Think of what these charts might look like as bond yields return to their historical norms - the party will not end well!
One glaring error
As much as there are things to like about this app, there is one glaring error - dollar signs go BEFORE the number. For an app that exists for the sole purpose of expressing money amounts, this seems like something that needs fixing.
It has a few interesting features and is well made.
