Who better to manage your stock portfolio than you? Keep track of what's happening at every moment in the market with the Google Finance app, which syncs with your online account to bring you personalized information about your stocks.
The market summary screen displays today's overall trends according to the DOW, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq. Switch over to Portfolios to check out your personalized data, featuring up-to-the-minute information regarding current trading price and today's movement. The tickers are tappable for more detailed information about each company, including long-term charts and the most recent financial news from many sources (this is Google, after all).
The News tab brings you generalized updates in the current financial world. You can read the stories within the app itself (as opposed to being redirected to Chrome/any other browser).
I had no trouble getting my Google Finance portfolio to sync with the app, but found it impossible to add tickers from within the app itself - annoying, and judging from the comments from other users, I'm not the only one. It might have to do with incompatibility with the most recent devices, but I doubt it since I'm on a Nexus 4.
The design leaves something to be desired. Sure, stocks are Serious Business, but Google designs are usually so ergonomic - this one is just stark.
If you already use Google Finance, the app is a good way to keep track of your investments on the go.
