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.
