Australia Unlimited: free iPad magazine profiles creativity & innovation

in News (E)

[] Sydney, Australia - The Australia Unlimited iPad magazine is a new monthly publication that is focused on shifting international perceptions of Australia.

We are a country of great achievements, inventions and innovations. We pioneered Internet Wi-Fi, Google maps and artificial skin for burns victims. We play a key business role in many of the world's leading economies and our creative industries are the envy of many around the world.

But research shows that these achievements are not well known.

Australia Unlimited is determined to change that reputation, by telling the stories of our talented people, both here and around the world - people who are changing the world for the better, through their creativity, business acumen, research and humanitarian efforts.

The Australia Unlimited iPad app uses engaging content combined with stunning imagery and multimedia to tell these stories, ranging across a broad field of interests - arts, technology, business and humanitarian to name just a few.

The Australia Unlimited app is made available worldwide through the iTunes App Store and updated each month with new content. This edition of Australia Unlimited includes:
