Since the beginning of the smartphone age, accessing information has become easier and faster than ever. Even personal computers or laptops cannot provide the flexibility and ease-of-use that smartphones provide. They are compact, lightweight, and just require some touches, or a simple glance to get the information you need.
This compactness comes in handy especially when you need to stay updated constantly, like the stock market where everyone needs to be up-to-date on the latest happenings regarding their investments. Instead of viewing the prices of equities and commodities on the TV, or calling your stock broker, you can just take out your Android smartphone, launch the stock market app and keep yourself updated in real-time with the latest prices of the stock market.

Apart from displaying the current market price of equities and commodities, these Android apps also show 52-week high and low, today’s high and low, latest news associated with that script, and most importantly, some apps allow you to create a watchlist and portfolio, where you can create a list of stocks that you want to track the prices.
