Investing, buying, selling, trading – admittedly, I’m no expert. But I do know a killer free app when I see one.
Insider Trades is designed to help you make better, faster, more informed decisions when it comes to investments by providing you with detailed information on the insider trading that goes on every day. The app is created by Directors Deals, who track and analyze all of these trades and present them to you in an easy-to-navigate format.
The app opens to the latest fifty bulletins; a list of companies you can tap and see country, market cap, sector, the latest price, a price graph, and the latest and most significant trades involving the company. You can also tap to see the directors, trade history, and a list of fundamentals and dividends. Tap the “+” in the top right to add that company to your watchlist so you can find it even faster. Rotating your iPhone allows you to view the price graph full-screen landscape.
Your choices along the bottom of the app include a search option to find a specific company fast, your watchlist, and your settings. You can set Insider Trades with an end-of-day or intra-day alert, as well as adjust the currency and the time for your watchlist trades. There’s also a glossary with investment terms; useful for know-nothings like me.
Admittedly, the app crashed on me twice. However, it saved all of my changes and worked fine upon opening it again. The design, along with the staggering amount of information it provides, makes this one a great free download.
Insider Trades [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
