Real-Time Stock Tracker: Your Pocket Portfolio

If you’re looking for a truly stellar app that allows you to engage in stock trading on-the-go, Real-time Stock Tracker is not the application for you. But if what you want is a comprehensive tool that allows you to track markets and stocks via a live, streaming feed (no delays), follow your own portfolio with ease, receive push notifications concerning particular stocks, and practice your trading skills in a virtual environment that won’t lose you any real money, then the Real-time Stock Tracker application should be your first choice. While you can certainly find any number of apps that will offer you one or more of these features, you’ll be hard pressed to uncover one that gives you everything, and that does it as well as this one. So what can you get from this handy app for your favorite iDevices?

The app, as you may have guessed, is a stock tracker. And if all you want is to track markets in real-time you can do so with nothing more than the free download. However, there are a lot of other bells and whistles you’ll probably want to add, and you can do so through in-app purchases, which are abundant. In truth, your best bet is to skip the cherry-picking and simply shell out $9.99 for the full version of the app, which will unlock all the features. Considering that ad removal alone will set you back five bucks, the one-time fee for the full version seems preferable.

So you’ll start with the stock tracking feature, which is basically a watchlist. You can enter any markets you want to keep track of, such as the NYSE, NASDAQ, and any international markets you care to add, as well as individual stocks (AAPL, GOOG, etc.). The watchlist is simple enough to scroll through and you’ll get an instant snapshot of stocks and markets, with green boxes denoting gains and red ones indicating losses. Each entry on your watchlist will also apprise you of the current stock quote, the amount of profit or loss, and after-hours or pre-market pricing. In addition, you may select any item on the list to see a full-screen chart with myriad details.

The next step is to set up your own portfolio, and thanks to compatibility with both Google and Yahoo finance, users can import any portfolios they have already established with these two entities, saving themselves the time and hassle of re-entering the data. Of course, you can also create as many portfolios as you want manually and add unlimited positions. But what you’ll no doubt like even better is the fact that this section of the application also provides you with real-time data so that you always know the current value of your account, as well as your overall earnings, your day’s P/L, and the relative value (with gains or losses) of your holdings. And you can set up push notifications for both stocks in your portfolio and those that you might like to pick up.

Finally, the app offers you a virtual stock trading course thanks to the paper-trade feature. This training tool provides users with an environment that is just like the real deal except for one major difference: there’s no actual money involved. It’s a great way for newbies to learn the ropes and gain some confidence while seasoned traders can use it for fun and fantasy or as a means of brushing up on their skills. Real-time Stock Tracker is just an all-around great app for anyone who wants to follow the markets, keep an eye on their portfolio, and practice trading without the threat of monetary loss. And with real-time, streaming functionality, it can keep you in the loop wherever you are so that you never miss an opportunity to make some real money.
