Slowly but surely the world’s internet users are using their smartphones rather than desktop machines or even tablets. The younger generation is nearly exclusively using their phones.
There are thousands of stock market & finance market apps on the Android Play store but the key is to find a company offering a useful service that also has a great App. Usability is the key to a great app because there is so much less screen real-estate in play.
Here are 5 of my favorite free apps for Android users.
- TradingView – Best Stock Charts & Social Investing App
- Firstrade – Best App To Buy Stocks Free $0 Commissions
- M1 Finance – Best App for Automated Robo Investing
- TC2000 – Best for U.S.A. & Canada Stock Analysis & Trading
- Yahoo Finance – Best App for Free Stocks News & Tickers
TradingView – Best Stock Charts & Social Investing App
The incredible thing about TradingView is that they do not even need an app for smartphones or tablets simply go to TradingView.com and it is up and running, no installation no problems.
TradingView’s platform is at the cutting edge of HTML5 development, which simply means, whatever device you use TradingView on, it will be visually perfect due to the incredible responsive software design. This means you do not need to sync your data across devices it is already there. Tradingview is the software I use every day and because it is geared around social interaction, learning and community ideas, it is a fabulous place to be.
TradingView, of course, does have an app on the Play Store with a 4 Star Rating.
Firstrade – Best App To Buy Stocks Free $0 Commissions
Firstrade is the best broker you have never heard of. They came in second in our broker review in 2017, but the moved to commission-free stock trades in August 2018.
But let’s talk mobile trading apps because that’s why you are here.
The Firstrade stock trading app allows you to manage your portfolio seamlessly, you can trade stocks, options, and ETF’s commission-free directly from your phone.
Firstrade is a large brokerage and you need to open a brokerage account to be able to take advantage of the app.
M1 Finance – Best App for Automated Robo Investing
Uniquely, M1 Finance lets you copy expert portfolios or build your own. Furthermore, M1 offers both automatic and manual investing. Thus, M1 is a great resource for serious investors busy with careers or families.
The great advantage to M1 is that allows automatic investing based on your preferences. Hence, M1 is perfect for serious investors with little spare time. In addition, M1 Finance offers no-fee e.g. Zero Commissions investing. You can also utilize their additional borrowing and current account services
TC2000 – Best for U.S.A. & Canada Stock Analysis & Trading
While the current reviews on the stores suggest some technical issues, TC2000 has recently been updated to run natively on all devices, I have tested it and the new version is great.
I have been a Platinum subscriber with TC2000 for 20 years. Why, because they offer simply the best-integrated charting and real-time fundamental scanning and screening service available.
It is an incredibly powerful yet easy to use stock analysis suite.
TC2000 is ideal for those wanting to trade and invest in the U.S. and Canadian stock market as international exchanges are not supported.
Yahoo Finance – Best App for Free Stocks News & Tickers
If you are looking for easy-to-read market news and data, Yahoo Finance is still one of the best apps around. In addition, Yahoo!! Finance offers access to a wide variety of market-oriented videos.
Including clips from popular news shows and interviews with business leaders.
There are features that allow you to trade stocks and follow over 100 cryptocurrencies in the Yahoo! Finance App. The Yahoo! Finance App is available for Android in Google Play.
Yes, you heard correctly you can trade directly from Yahoo Finance.
In fact, surprisingly Yahoo Finance has a huge selection of broker integrations. So as opposed to going through the hassle of signing up with a specific broker you can use Yahoo to integrate with your broker
