CNNMoney Launches An iPhone Application

Posted Jul 7, 2009

The iPhone finance section is heating up now that CNNMoney has stepped into the market.  The CNNMoney application is currently one of the top free Finance applications on the iTunes App Store, competing against companies such as Bloomberg, Associated Press, and The New York Times.

The CNNMoney application is a portal with a built in stock search engine, market index tracking tool, company and economic news, video highlights, and sharing feature.  There is a tool called My Stocks to add the stocks that you want to track.

News about real estate, small business, technology, autos, jobs, and personal finance can be added to the homepage of the application.  Additional headlines can be added from Fortune and Money Magazine as well.

Personally I believe that the application looks a bit generic and could use something to make it stand out from every other finance news application, but that is just my opinion.  Some people are comfortable looking at generic finance news applications.  The operating system required for the application is iPhone OS 2.1 or greater.
