StockTwits Takes Financial Idea Network Mobile With New iPhone App

Twitter-focused stock and trading network StockTwits is making its debut into the mobile space today with a native free iPhone app.

The app includes much of the same functionality as StockTwits’ web site. You can access all of the stock-focused Twitter streams on the app, as well as the stock watch lists. Users can update their own streams of Tweets about stock from the app and follow and view other user profiles on the site.

The app also features, a stock-chart service that was designed specifically for StockTwits (and subsequently acquired by the startup). Within the app, you can access charts and screencasts from traders.

StockTwits has built in a realtime financial news feed from financial news site Abnormal News (which the company acquired early this year), and its online video channel.

The app is essentially about taking the convenience of StockTwits’ financial idea and information network on the go. StockTwits has a fast growing community, and with the time-sensitive nature of the financial information that the site provides, the mobile app is sure to be popular amongst users.
