Bloomberg has released a new Android application including news and stock home screen widgets. The app provides news and market data, track stock portfolios, news related to particular stocks, and users can also create personalized views of the news by industry, region, exclusivity or popularity.
A nice feature is the app’s ability to download news stories in the background. The Android app is free and now available in the Android Market.
“Bloomberg uniquely harnesses technology to combine data, news and information into integrated tools that are relevant for our users,” said Oke Okaro, global head of Bloomberg Mobile. “We’ve made significant developments in creating rich, personalized experiences on mobile, and we’re working on some incredible applications that will leverage Bloomberg’s core strengths as a multimedia and technology company.”
