The US Debt Now app displays the daily amount of the US National Debt over the past 25+ years. You can see the trending of the debt in an interactive chart with data updated each day as the Treasury publishes the new amount.

Today the US National Debt is over 30 trillion dollars and is changing every day. The actual number is $30.12T, or $30,116,594,102,929.

This is a beautiful app with a nice display that makes it quick and easy to get up-to-date details on the debt. A perfect tool for TV and radio talk show hosts, members of congress, and even the President of the United States (POTUS). Keep this tool handy to see how much money is currently in the debt.

The daily debt data for the app is taken from the TreasuryDirect website using their "The Debt to the Penny and Who Holds It" JSON service. Browse the Treasury website for more information.

The only app with this info

Although this information is published for free online by our own government, it's at times hard and obscure to find these numbers.

I assume the developer is using either the DTS or the treasury direct api? In either case, it would be awesome to see a breakdown per security type / maturity date. Better yet, understanding how much debt is coming due each day, and then correlating that with what type of securities were issued that day to cover that redemption, plus add more "new money".

Another thing to consider, looking at the daily interest costs of carrying the growing debt. Surprisingly, it's gown down as the debt balloons! Seeing this in an app would be fantastic.

You get 5 stars for even getting this info out there. Thank you! Also, loving the new updates.

The only way this could be improved is by telling us what country's we owe the money to

Would like to see more options

The newer simplified view has fewer options. Would appreciate being able to make a custom range of dates beyond the standard ones, such as being able to zoom in on a past segment. Overall this still provides great information and is definitely useful, so keep it up!
