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.

Barron’s - Investing Insights

Barron’s - Investing Insights

Dow Jones & Company, Inc., publisher of The Wall Street Journal.

Barron's is well known for its reliability in the financial world. This app proves that with its magazine app optimized for the iPad. Unlike the other apps that report news by the minute, the main focus of Barron's is to report news every Friday. The advantage of this is that the articles are written by the best professionals who often give advice within the article itself. Barron's also has you covered by putting current news in the side when opening the app. Unfortunately, the biggest con of Barrons is the price. At $150 a year for the magazine, this app is geared toward a serious investor and is probably not what an average person wants for financial news.
