Android users are quite familiar with Google sprucing up the appearance of their mobile apps lately, and now we finally see a much needed update to Google Finance. Consultants, Advisers, and Brokers alike are always searching for that perfect finance app, the one that we can customize to add our own portfolios, search important news, and track what we want to track without the bloat. Well, now we have a much broader look into our portfolios, and news, as well as specific markets all thanks to the new Google Finance on Android. This update is gorgeous and does everything I want it to do. Check out the pics, and story below and be sure to drop us a comment.
Google’s been applying some makeup to several of their mobile web offerings – namely Search and Image Search – but Google Finance is the latest to get a very similar overhaul. Google Finance was usable on Android handsets before, but it didn’t have the same polish that we’d come to expect from other mobile offerings and it sent most people to the market to download native financial applications (including Google’s own Finance).
I prefer a native experience, but I know some people love doing their bidding in browsers. This doesn’t add or change any core features in Finance itself, but it does make it a lot easier to keep up with your stocks. All you need to do is access Finance from your browser as you normally would (and make sure your user agent – if using a third party browser – is set to Android, iPhone, or Mobile).
