Wall Street Journal has launched a significant update to their financial tracking MarketWatch app. MarketWatch for iOS is effectively brand new, bringing full-on iOS 7 support and finally bringing native iPad support thanks to it being a universal app for both iPhone and iPad.
For those not familiar with MarketWatch for iOS, it is a financial app that allows you to track business news and
information in real time including stocks and the markets, business events and breaking news and the like. As the WSJ describes the app…
Stay connected with what’s happening in the markets and with the news and analysis you need. The MarketWatch app for iPhone and iPad delivers market data and quotes alongside the latest business and finance news and analysis, updated in real-time and automatically saved for offline viewing.
The new app now supports iPad which is a welcome addition. The new iPad version leverages all the canvas of the device in a beautifully laid out UI that allows you at a glance to see news, the stock markets and your own watch list of stocks and funds.
MarketWatch for iOS is a free app and is available now in the App Store. Some features require an account with MarketWatch which is also free and can be signed up for within the app.
