Financial Advisors demand clear, concise up to the second quotes and news at a moments notice. From the start of my career in the financial services industry, real-time and streaming was the only choice with no substitutions. Analysis, trading, and monitoring your portfolio holdings is not the same with a 15 minute delay. You may want to examine the aforementioned iOS and Android applications because these solutions can make the difference of riding the tide of opportunity or missing the lap of victory.
PortfolioLive by Turing Studios is one of my preferred real-time stock quote applications. One reason is because I am able to obtain real-time quotes for all publicly listed stocks, Mutual Funds in addition to ETFs. I have utilized this application on my iPhone since its initial release in 2009. This is my go to market application for an instantaneous glance of everything that’s essential. The indicators are especially clear and operate advertisement free with crash free performance. The easy to read screen is very customizable. PortfolioLive also supports advanced charting with an integrated up-to-date Financial News Reader. PortfolioLive is compatible with all mobile iOS devices; however, I would like to see an iPad variant. PortfoilioLive can exclusively be purchased in the iTunes App Store for $5.99. Currently they have a limited sale for 66% off the usual cost. Unlike many real-time quote services, that require a subscription, this one will not. Just download it and you are ready to go. I believe this App is an outstanding value for $2.00.

CNBC Real-Time by NBC Universal, Inc appears to be the only free App that delivers Real-Time quotes from the NYSE and NASDAQ. This is the first application I access with my iPhone just as soon as I awake. CNBC RT delivers headline news and pre-market data with an uncomplicated clear interface.
