Blue keeps you posted about financial-market prices in real time. Boasting information from more than 170 exchanges, as well as featuring major commodities and stock markets, this app has its bases covered.
The finance app comes with both snapshot and streaming modes, which include real-time quotes of stocks, mutual funds, commodities and currency. Along with quotes, Blue allows users to track portfolios, create watch lists, receive price alerts and news alerts that could affect your investments. Blue even helps out beginner investors by offering a user’s guide and tutorials that explain terms and how to find important information on its screens.
Blue’s interface relies on fairly straight-forward graphics. We found its primary black, white and red colors helpful when navigating and tracking the markets’ ups and downs. We think even beginners will find its ever-changing quotes and daily, weekly, and monthly reports on a commodity or company shares helpful and easy to understand.
While we enjoyed the frequent updates to our phone, the app came pre-loaded with more than a dozen random stocks and commodities. Keep this in mind if you want to create your own watch list, as you’ll have to delete all or most of the pre-loaded quotes.
