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.
