Bank of England shows off its piles of gold in its own shameless app

Wealth. Big stinking masses of it. That's what the Bank of England is letting you get a glimpse of through its own official app. A panoramic tour gives a scrollable view of an unspecified number of gold bars, each weighing in at 13kg and -- more importantly -- worth around £350,000 ($528,000). (But hey, at least the app is free.) The Bank of England houses 400,000 of them in total, although most are actually owned by other banks. Those looking to channel the lifestyle of Scrooge McDuck can take the tour on both iOS and Android -- hit up the source for links to both.
