Yahoo Finance for Android

Up until this morning, Android users in need of up-to-the minute finance information were best served by the Google Finance app. Now, Yahoo's aiming to offer another easily accessible option with its own popular Finance app, which finally made its way onto the mobile OS earlier today.

Yahoo Finance for Android appears to carry over many of the most useful features from the Web service, including real-time quotes and a customizable stock watch list. You also get access to Yahoo Finance portfolios, company stats and news, and Tech Ticker videos.

The app is currently available in the United States, with worldwide availability coming in the future. Stateside users can download Yahoo Finance for free by searching in the Android Marketplace directly on a device, or you can head over to Yahoo's mobile blog and scan the barcode on the screen.
