 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.

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.”
