With the new iPad being launched tomorrow, if you’ve got Apple shares you might be glued to the stock market to see just how high they’re going to go, and if you’re looking for an app to help you do that, StockTouch could be the very thing. Named by Apple as the best iPad Finance app of 2011, and featuring on all demo iPads and iPhones in Apple Stores, StockTouch is a universal app, available for both iPad and iPhone. The app uses up-to-the minute market data to create 9,800 dynamic charts, all of which are available to access at your fingertips. The live information lets you view 1400 companies at any one time, supported by over 16,000 news stories. The app also enables you to see the top 900 stocks in the US market, and the top 900 global stocks, categorized across 9 industry sectors. You can customize the view according to price or volume, and sort the layout in a variety of ways, including market cap, winners, activity and alphabetical. The app also has a handy search function, with two different ways to find any publicly traded stock. It certainly seems to be a feature-packed financial app, as you can even use it to view results from as far back as five years ago, and up to as recently as five minutes ago. There’s also a "favourites" feature, that lets you keep track of your favourite stocks, automatically syncing between your iPad and iPhone via iCloud. Excellent stuff!
