Investment Pro: iPhone App Video Review

Investment Pro for iPhone

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Do you want a stock app that’s more than just a simple business ticker? Do you want something that does more than simply show you the changes and let you do the rest of the computing on your own? If so, then pony up, Cadet! Investment Pro, by developer Marketing Design Solutions provides the perfect way to get an immediate handle on what’s hot and what’s not in the stock market, and all through a single push notification. If you’ve been looking for a more detailed stock app that’s custom-tailored to improving your investment strategies, then wait no more. Jump on down below the break to view our whole thought on this great business-oriented application for the iPhone!

Concept and Functionality

If you were previously unaware, the stocks app for the iPhone is somewhat lackluster. That’s not to say it doesn’t do it’s job well, but considering it’s little more than a Google search ticker displaying trading changes, we often find ourselves wanting just a bit more. Investment Pro is exactly that bit more. The app provides the user with hand-picked trades and advice from insider traders who have been involved with the business for decades. For instance, a listing may advise you to invest in Starbucks because of a decline in coffee prices, or an oil company because of a lifted embargo. In other words, you’re given a hot tip, as well as the reasons for its arriving at your doorstep. You can also use Investment Pro to check hot stock news, as well as insider trades and buys of the week. All in all, Investment Pro is like a model for your investment strategies, providing you with detailed, common-sense information with which you can make some serious bank.

Best of all, the app looks bloody marvelous on the iPhone. We loved the simplicity of the tabbed navigational bar at the bottom, as well as the smooth scrolling, tabbed look of the stock tip lists. The push notifications worked like a champ, delivering our daily tips right to our door without fuss. This is an unbelievably helpful way to deliver such news, and we don’t know what we’d do without it. We also liked the option to attach our favorite social networking venus to the app, though we don’t know when we’ll next be tweeting our stock conquests.

Overall Value

Investment Pro may seem a bit pricy at the requested two dollars in the App Store, but considering the app will potentially make you a whole lot more than two bucks, it certainly seems like a value to us. If you’ve been looking for the perfect, user-friendly stock app for the iPhone, you can stop hunting now. Investment Pro is a must-have for any serious investor.

Investment Pro for iPhoneInvestment Pro requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

    You’re right- mkst stock apps are a rip off. Just tickers. This one gives real stock picks from real portfolio managers. App made me mkney already. Totally worth $2.

    There is a lot of research and content in this app. Been getting two or three new stock tips a day from real analysts working at major investment companies. That’s pretty cool.
