If the lack of features in Apple’s stock Stocks app on iOS (also powered by Yahoo) just isn’t cutting it, Yahoo announced today the release of a completely redesigned Yahoo Finance iOS app with push notifications and much more.
The new app introduces a revamped UI alongside a number of new features. Perhaps the most notable feature is the ability to follow specific stocks and receive push notifications for breaking stories:
The Yahoo Finance app for iPhone and iPad was reimagined to deliver a beautiful personalized experience with a stream of top news and data based on your favorite stocks and interests. We’ve added Push Notifications to keep you in the know as important stories break — so you can make quick and informed decisions on the stocks and companies you follow.
Yahoo has also added new interactive charts that users can pan and pinch to manipulate and use to compare any stock, market or index to see related price changes.
Yahoo Finance includes completely redesigned interactive stock charts to track historical changes, and easily compare performance to identify trends… It’s now easier than ever to visualize company and market data by swiping, pinching and panning across the chart.
Perhaps Apple will learn a lesson from Yahoo like it did with its weather app for a completely overhauled Stocks app in a future iOS update.
The updated Yahoo Finance app is available for free on the App Store now for iPhone and iPad.
