 After you use StockTouch to check in on your investments, you won’t ever want to go back. Its user interface is far superior to anything offered by Google, Yahoo, and other popular Web apps.

“There’s never really been a native Mac app dedicated to making stock market monitoring an effortless — and may we say, tastefully designed — task. At least, that used to be the issue. Visible Market, the developer of StockTouch for iPad, has recently brought its popular iOS Stocks app alternative to the Mac.”

Review: StockTouch is a Powerful Screener App

CJF Capital: The value for me is to give me a larger database for which to select stocks that might be undervalued. I can see visually that a stock might have a low P/E or a stock that has been severely beaten down over the last year. I can then conduct further analysis and see if it warrants being added into my portfolio.In all, this app puts the iOS stocks app to shame, and has powerful screening features that the Bloomberg app lacks. The colourful interface and tap-to-zoom features really make it fun to use on an iPad.

App Store New and Noteworthy

StockTouch is New and Noteworthy in the App Store for the week starting March 15, 2011! We are thrilled. The latest update to StockTouch includes support for the beautiful 2048×1356 retina display in the new iPad. Enjoy.

Cult of Mac: Beauty, Speed and Simplicity

Giles Turnbull at Cult of Mac reviews StockTouch:

“The app is a pleasure to use (more so if you’re an AAPL stock holder, I imagine). It combines beauty, speed and simplicity. Information is beautiful, a wise man once said, and that’s demonstrated here…As a browser for stock data, though, StockTouch is an excellent piece of work. The simplicity of the controls belies the complexity of the data being displayed, and yet it all feels very simple to use, and never overwhelming.”

Apple App Store: Money Management

StockTouch is highlighted as a noteworthy app in Apples “Money Management” promotion in the App Store on your iPad, iPhone or in iTunes, from March 7-15th.

Apple Love

Today Apple announced the new retina display iPad. We couldn’t be more excited. We were also pleasantly surprised to see Tim Cook talk about “groundbreaking apps” and to cite and show StockTouch as one of them. Check out the video below (embedded from CNN) as well as a still from Apple’s event rebroadcast (we are at approximately the 20 minute mark).

ZDNet: Silky Smooth

“I’ve experimented with a number of iOS stock apps over the years and StockTouch($4.99, App Store) is the most beautiful that I’ve ever seen. By a long shot.”

Startup Select

This review of StockTouch in Startup Select hones in on the highly visual nature of the app:

“Initially, it is the UI of StockTouch that is stunning – slick, and speedy. The heatmaps for the various sectors take up the largest part of the screen, leaving a bar down the right-hand side for StockTouch’s controls.”

Chris Abraham Reviews StockTouch

A thoughtful review of StockTouch by Chris Abraham (disclosure: we work with his social media and PR consulting firm):

“What happens when John, a video game guru, who has made a fortune producing games for mobile gets together with tech entrepreneur and angel investor, Jennifer Johnson, and user experience maestro, Steve de Brun, then you can have your very own mini Minority Report experience with a user interface that gesturally and intuitively allows you to track publicly-traded business and their stocks and indexes near real-time without needing to get a PhD in finance from Princeton University first.”

Business Finance Store: Smooth, smart and fun.

The Business Finance Store reviews StockTouch:

“It is smartly designed. It serves its primary purpose, tracking stock market movements, efficiently and effectively. However, there was an added element for me. I ended up learning a lot because of its ease and enjoyability of use. It’s fun and interesting. I found myself returning to it again and again, lingering long after I followed up on the stocks of interest to me, studying companies and sectors, learning about their history, clicking through the news links and such.”

Apple Bitesite

“StockTouch is all about presentation, and it’s got it spot on. The visuals are fantastic, with the colours used brilliantly to represent what has happened to each stock. Sometimes, with lots of data in one place, it can be complicated, but not in this. It’s visual design makes everything clear, while still including everything you could need.”
