Not only does the app update with the latest Frank Talks, Investor Alerts and videos, but users can also check out slideshows of our research trips around the world, read the latest news, see interviews from Bloomberg TV and other news media, and learn more about the funds. An app for Android users will be launched later in 2011. To design and build the lineup of mobile applications, U.S. Global Investors partnered with the creative interactive agency, Sweb Development.
