Anyone who knows me will know that I'm addicted to trading, it's like crack. When I'm not sitting in front of my computer I have to be connected and so far my BlackBerry has served me well. I was given an iPad in December and have switched it on once - I should really use it because it has 10gb mobile data a month (3G) and I've heard good reviews.
Can any of you recommend any apps for finance related news? The only ones I am currently using are Bloomberg (brilliant) and IG Markets (average, feels gimmicky).
I find the Apple app store really difficult to search through and most top rated apps suit the US markets better than Australia.
I'll add the first suggestion to anyone: Bloomberg! This app is incredibly quick, simple to use and looks amazing. When you launch the app there are 4 main sections.
- Stock Finder
- My Stocks (Watchlist / Portolio)
The stock finder supports all securities worldwide, the markets section gives quotes on almost anything (equities, commodoties, bonds, currencies etc.), the news is updated extremely fast and is the best I have found online for free, the my stocks section is the only one I have consistently kept updated and the podcasts are great when in the plane (they don't work when in the air which is 90% of my time travelling :-(
Bloomberg is available on all devices.
I am looking for a new mobile as my BlackBerry is outdated, I've heard the new version is coming out in February but some advice with this would also be very appreciated.
