Morningstar has launched an upgraded version of the free applications it developed for the Apple iPhone or iPod Touch in May that now include performance charts for stocks, funds, exchange-traded funds and indexes. Alongside this information, investors can view the Morningstar Market Barometer and data on each of the Morningstar fund categories, as well as market indexes and news.
Users will also still have the ability to view their portfolios and watch lists. Premium subscribers get access to Morningstar independent analyst research reports. Since launching the applications seven months ago, 45,000 people have downloaded Morningstar’s mobile application.
“We’ve added these new features and functionality after listening to feedback from iPhone users, who responded with overwhelming enthusiasm to our mobile app’s initial release in May,” said Kunal Kapoor, president of individual software at Morningstar. “These enhancements will help investors with a comprehensive application packaged specifically for their mobile device that provides anytime, anywhere access to the information and research they need.”
Investors can download the application for free at the iPhone App Stock and find more information along with a demonstration video at: http://mobileapps.morningstar.com/mobile/iphone.aspx.
