Google Finance for your smartphone

Brian Shih, (Product Manager) Say's

Here on the Google Finance team, we're always looking for new ways to help you access the finance data, charts, and reports that you need in the blink of an eye. But all the data in the world won't help if you can't access it when you need it most. Since many of us are on the run throughout the day and don't always have our computers in front of us, it came as no surprise that one of users' most frequently requested features was a fast, easy-to-use mobile website for Google Finance.
We heard your feedback and are please to announce we've launched the new Android/iPhone edition of Google Finance for mobile! The markets don't stop when you leave your desk, so we're bringing the markets to you. Our new design gives you a unified experience across desktop and Android or iPhone phones, offering nearly all the same features and functionality on both. You can easily access the new site when you do a Google search for stock tickers or company names on your mobile device, or when you tap the "Finance" tab on the Google mobile homepage.

Now no matter where you are, you can keep up with your portfolio, the latest market news, and the sectors you care about, with real time quotes and data -- all at a glance.

Prefer it in app form? Android users can also get the Google Finance app in Android Market.

As always, if you have feedback on this or other topics, please share it on our Google Finance survey or visit our Product Ideas site where you can share and vote on ideas.
