Why tap around for stock information when Siri can tell you everything you need to know?

Stocks uses information from Yahoo! Finance to monitor the markets. It's customizable so you can keep track of only the stocks that matter to you, and what's more — if you don't have time to wade through the app to get the latest market reports, you can simply ask Siri to do it for you.

  2. Say something like "What is Apple's stock at today?" or "Show me stock information for Google."
