Best investing apps for the BlackBerry:

Stockstream Mobile (

Designed for active investors, this app provides data and information to help you make buying and selling decisions. Corporate news is streamed by stock symbol. Alerts can be customised for specified stock price movements. Real-time updates also include company fundamentals such as earnings per share. Trends can be examined, with detailed charts linked to your watch lists. The data may look a bit crowded on a BlackBerry display compared with on an iPhone.

For those who like their stock analysis larded with emotional commentary from Jim Cramer, this app is for you. This site pushes the latest information down to your BlackBerry, saving battery life, as your phone doesn't have to waste power seeking the download. So market data and the commentary stream load much faster, almost in real time.

Stock Viewer (

This free app simply retrieves and displays stock quotes on a BlackBerry. The software is set up for continuous retrieval of stock quotes pushed to your BlackBerry. You can easily select and filter your target stocks and retrieve headline news. This software runs with so little memory, file space and power consumption that even the busiest BlackBerry phone will be able to run it with few problems.
