Yahoo! Finance update brings all new look, better personalization

Yahoo! has released a new version of Yahoo! Finance for iOS. The app has a completely new interface, in line with the redesigns of other Yahoo! apps, like Mail and Weather. You can follow different stocks, and their numbers appear at the top of the app. Tap the '%' or '$' to switch between viewing a stock's value change in either percentage or dollars. Scroll down to view the market overview for your country, and even further down to read the latest related news.

Tap one of the stocks you follow for more detailed information. A graph of the stock's activity can display activity from several time periods. The day's activity, the last five days, three months, six months, the last year, five years, and finally, the lifetime of the stock. You can either tap the graph or turn your device to one side in order to expand the graph view. Get company-specific news, and view things like the company's market cap, their opening price, and their 52-week high and low.

You can find stocks to follow, as well as unfollow and reorder the stocks that you're already tracking, by tapping the magnifying glass in the top right corner. Use the search bar to find stocks, and tap Edit to reorder or delete any of your current favorites. Tap the hamburger menu in the top left corner of the app to sign in to your Yahoo account, and check the status of world markets, bonds, currencies, and more.

Since Yahoo! also powers the iOS 7 Stocks application, the question has to be asked; Apple's app, or this one from Yahoo?

  • For some reason this won't open on my iPad air. Any others having this problem?
  • Nevermind. Restarted the iPad and it works.
  • The change in the site sucks! I use yahoo finance (desktop version) every day on my iPhone, but as of today can no longer do so because their new changes automatically redirect me to the totally inadequate mobile version of the website which is useless for my needs. (Mobile versions of websites really really suck, and this one is no different!). It never ceases to amaze how dumb people working at yahoo and other internet sites must be.
  • Google finance dominates Yahoo finance on desktops yet Yahoo seems to be doing better in the mobile arena, with support to the native Stocks iOS app and this refresh!
