In most cases, these trading apps will allow you to trade from your phone (i.e E*TRADE) or act as a source of financial news (Bloomberg). While the new multi-tasking feature allows you to more easily manage from one app to the next, it would still be nice if there was an application that bundled this all into one.
Wikinvest Portfolio Manager
Wikinvest has been a popular social financial news site for quite some time, and it recently launched it’s own free stock trading app that surprisingly does a lot more than any of the other free trading apps out there.
Manage Brokerage Account - With Wikinvest Portfolio Manager users can sync up multiple brokerage accounts and manage their portfolio from within this app. Most popular brokers are covered. See stock brokerages that offer mobile trading.
Aggregated News Feed – Based on your watch lists and portfolios, users are able to access an aggregated news feed of stocks they are following.
Data and Charts – Besides news, users can also see the latest financial data and charts (up to 1 year)
Keep Track of Market – With many trading apps, you can only stay on top of stocks you are following. What I like about Wikinvest Portfolio Manager is that there is also a feature that allows users to see top market news and active stocks.
Web Access – Another cool feature of this trading app, is the ability to access everything (and even more) from the Wikinvest website. Track your accounts, watch lists, and create your unique views. Also keep tabs of your performance in relation to the major indices.
Needs for Improvement - While this application is good compared to its peers, the one criticism I have is that there could be some more interaction with the stock charts; regardless, this application is definitely one I recommend you check out.
You can download this application from the iTunes App Store.
