5 Free Android Stock Market Apps

Stocks in this article: GOOGAAPLETFCAMTDMSBACSCHW

NEW YORK ( TheStreet)-- What are the biggest apps for the Google (GOOG) Android platform when it comes to keeping an eye on the stock market? Here are a few ideas from TheStreet.

5. App: Stock Alert

Developer: Pocketools.com

Stock alert will send alerts to your phone when stocks and currencies hit certain price levels you select. This app also includes commodities data, though one user complains about the absence of wheat prices. While there was a bug in the alerts system, that has been fixed, according to the website AppBrain. Other apps by Pocketools include Stock Alert Pro and Currency Converter.

4.App: Wikinvest Portfolio

Developer:Wikinvest

Wikinvest can link directly to your portfolio at more than 60 different online brokers, including Charles Schwab (SCHW), TD Ameritrade (AMTD), Morgan Stanley (MS) and Bank of America's Merrill Lynch. Wikinvest also offers a portfolio manager app for Apple (AAPL)'s iPhone.

3. App: pFinance

Developer:BiShiNews

Pfinance lets you manage your expenses m track stocks and keep an eye on hot deals. It also includes calculators for everything from loans to interest payments to tips. Some users complained about the stock charts feature, but 887 users overall gave this app four and a half stars out of five.

2.App: Stock Quote

Developer:BiShiNews

Stock Quote is a free app helps you track stocks, markets, currencies and commodities, providing real-time after-hour and pre-market quotes. It also provides news from both traditional news outlets and social networking sites. It gets four stars out of five from 1,528 Google users. Among functions praised by users are offline news and the fact that the fund charts actually work.

1. App: Finance

Developer: Google (GOOG)

Finance for Android is a free app with streaming real-time stock quotes, speedy chart access and up to the minute company and market news. Nearly half of the app's more 10,000 users gave it five stars out of five. The overall rating is four out of five. One of the drawbacks, according to user Veb, is that while the App syncs with Google Finance, it does not show data for model portfolios.
