Android App Video Review: Bloomberg

by Erik Fikkert

The Bloomberg app for Android is an app that provides you with financial literature and market analysis for you to view on the go.

The Bloomberg app has four tabs: "News," "Markets," "My Stocks" and "Stock Finder." The news area has all of its information pulled directly from the Bloomberg website and will actually download all of the stories if you want to. The market area shows the Equity Indices in three categories. Selecting any of the markets will provide you with a snapshot view of it. The two buttons: "Industry Movers" and "Stock Movers" provide a breakdown of their subject in two different views.

Back in the snapshot view, if you rotate your phone sideways, it will turn the small 52 week summary chart into a widescreen chart that you can select up to five years viewing time. If you have your own personal stocks to follow, you can find them in the Stock Finder and select them as a favorite for viewing directly from "My Stocks" next time. This can save you the time and effort of having to look it up again.

Bloomberg seems to update fairly fast and provide a lot of useful information, so definitely check this app out.
