BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Coinciding with the release of the Apple (AAPL) - Get Report iPhone 4, Fidelity Investments has launched an application to help customers track their retirement plans.

Fidelity, the largest U.S. provider of workplace retirement plans with more than 14 million 401(k) and 403(b) participants, says the new app enables clients to follow retirement-savings accounts by viewing investment choices, such as mutual funds; account balances; performance and personal rate of return; and transactions. Investors aren't able to trade securities.

The free

app

is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, both old and new. A version for the iPad isn't yet available, but may be included in a future release.

In February, Fidelity entered the app market with a service that enables stock, option, ETF and mutual-fund trading over a secure trade ticket powered by an Apple interface. Nearly 10 years ago, the company launched its first mobile-trading application on the

Research in Motion

(RIMM)

platform.
