StockTouch is a powerful new way to monitor and understand the stock market for casual and professional investors.

Theiphonenerd team had a chance to try out the app and give our opinion. The app has a very clean interface and easy to follow on the screen and very informative, usually when you hear about stock market the first thing that comes in mind is a bunch of numbers and symbols and some other things. Stocktouch managed to give you simplicity and professionalism  you expect to monitor your stock. I enjoyed how they are categorized and how simple it is to save to your  favorites, as you save to  your stock as favorite they pop out on the main screen, saving you the trouble to look through them all.  So the bottom line is this app will please both casual and professional investors.

After watching this video, i’m beginning to think that my iphone 4 bumper purchase wasn’t much of deal breaker. If you listen closely you can hear the iphone  hitting the ground directly on the glass. I figured that the rubber edges wouldn’t allow the actual iphone to hit the ground but I was wrong. Obviously your not going to go out and drop your iphone on concrete 4 times in a row but even that one accidental drop might do the job and break your iphone, bumper on or not.

Most of the reviews have been positive about the iPad experience though many have also noted the absence of features such as multi-tasking and Adobe Flash.

According to David Pogue from the New York Times, the iPad is likely to find greater appeal among the non-techie regular users while the more tech-savvy audience may find more value from a laptop. Pogue opines that while the iPad may not be the best platform for “creating stuff”, it makes content consumption “infinitely” easier. Pogue claims that the iPad exceeded advertised battery life by playing videos for over 12 hours in his test.

Walt Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal concurs with Pogue on the iPad’s excellent battery life. Mossberg claims that the tablet device is a “pleasure to use” and had the “potential to change portable computing profoundly” besides propeling the popularity of finger driven multitouch UI ahead of the prevailing mouse driven interfaces. However, Mossberg concedes that the iPad may not be entirely suitable while working on documents.
