CNBC Real-Time for iPad: Business app for market updates

We’ve seen some great new apps appearing lately for the iPad and recently have reported on the new “Friendly” app, the Djay app and also the Trainz simulator app for iPad. Now, if you’re a constant user of the iPad and also in business this next app could be invaluable for you.

CNBC Real-Time for iPad is a useful new app that will keep you constantly up-to-date with what’s going on in the stock market with information from the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Roberto on padgadget.com reports that the CNBC Live View gives real-time quotes for stock prices, not just during market hours, but also before and after.

The app also supplies currency information, commodity news and interactive charts and has videos and a customizable ticker. It’s also possible to get breaking news alerts about the markets direct to your iPad from the 24-hour global coverage on CNBC. Even better, the app is free from the App Store.

Lauren Indvik over on Mashable makes the point that this new CNBC app makes both the Fox business app and the Bloomberg app look rather dated as they run with a 15-minute delay. What are your thoughts on this latest app and are you going to download it now? We’d be interested to hear your comments.
