Morningstar is offering a free mobile application for smartphones and other devices running on Google’s Android platform.

The application includes investing ideas, company information and tickets, a search function, Morningstar ratings for stocks and funds, and performance charts.

“Being on the go shouldn’t keep an investor from accessing the Morningstar data, research and analysts needed to help make better investment decisions,” said Kunal Kapoor, president of individual software at Morningstar. “We’ve worked with our customers to deliver a mobile app for Android that meets their needs and offers a new functionality in addition to the popular features of our Apple and BlackBerry mobile applications.”
