Pocket Wall Street

Keep an eagle eye on stock fluctuations and financial headline news in this gorgeous application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The world of finance is sober, serious business--more so if your stocks or industry is struggling through a waning economy. Financial headlines, a ticker finder, and a fleshed-out index of world markets add up to make Bloomberg's native application for the iPhone and iPod Touch the window into Wall Street. A dark application, Bloomberg contains a read-only newsfeed and statistics on various exchanges in global markets. Highs, lows, and a graph of yearlong performance are displayed for each exchange--further charts and tables are available for industry and stock movers.

To discover individual stock performance, users simply enter the company name into the stock finder, which also keeps a short-term history of your past queries. Even better, entering stocks and your share holdings into the My Stocks folder creates a personalized portfolio you can watch for daily fluctuation.
