How Aussie are You? is an app aimed at learning more about Australia

As an Australian resident, it’s amazing how little we sometimes know about the country we live in. That’s where an app called ‘How Aussie are You?’ comes into play, which is currently available on both the iPad and iPhone (and iPod by extension). How Aussie are You? is essentially a learning tool that quizzes you on the various aspects of the country, and the city of you choosing. While the app is mainly intended for those newcomers to Australia to learn a bit about the culture, sayings, and a little bit of geography as well.

The App developer, Cyril Gaillard, created this app for newcomers to Australia to learn about Australia in a ‘quiz style way’, learning from his own experiences and challenges (He’s a foreign student himself) so those of you who have recently come to Australia (or are planning to come to Australia) can learn about the country. You can also test your knowledge of Australia.

Players progress through the five biggest cities of Australia (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide) by correctly answering a series of question. Players can also select a category to answer questions from, such as – slang, culture, politics, history, sports and geography. Overall you win money by answering questions correctly, and the game is won when you reach $1,000,000. We tried our hand at it as well, and personally I was surprised at how many things I did know, and how many things I didn’t know as well so it’s worth a try for those of you who are locals like us as well just to test your knowledge.

The App is available for a free trial and costs $2.99 for a full version. Click here to download the app in the App Store.
