Although more of a stock tracker, Market Watch can be an excellent source for financial news. The interface is great and the realtime stock graph is especially cool. Another great thing that this app does is display the stocks that have been in the news, which of course helps a potential buyer of a particular stock. Even after paying for this app, there are enough ads to annoy you quite a bit. I think that this is the main downfall of this app, but if you can live with the ads and don't mind paying a few bucks, then give Market Watch a run.
