    Google Finance is an ideal market information app (much preferred to the Sense-provided "Stocks" app). Google Finance is of course, integrated with your Google Account's Finance page allowing you to build a portfolio or watch list in your Google Account, and have data pushed to your phone -- updated in real time. Note that Google provides real-time quote information from most of the US Stock exchanges, including (NYSE and NASDAQ).

    The sync occurs just like a Google Contacts or Gmail sync, so as you add/delete ticker symbols on your Google Finance page they are quickly synced to your phone.

    You can tap a specific stock symbol on your phone for additional quote data, company news, as well as charts (you can even set a default chart time period -- 1 day 5 days YTD 6 months 1 year etc -- but can easily change to other chart time periods). You may also elect to continually update share price info (real-time) -- so the main app page with your watch list is receiving constant quote updates.

    Finally there are additional tabs such as "Markets" with quotes for various major indices (Dow, S&P 500, NASDAQ) and "News" for business related news updates.

    One of the best, most informative apps for sure !

    This app would be better if you could track portfolio performance against the original price you bought the shares, otherwise it's largely useless

    Thanks for the review. I downloaded it and it isn't bad, probably the best of what is available. But Bloomberg needs to develop an Android app.

    I'm using the HTC stock app instead because the data is coming from Yahoo Finance, which gives quotes for a much wider range of assets than Google Finance does. But if all someone needs is US equities, Google Finance is the better app.
