Yahoo!7 Launches Finance App for Australian Investors

Sydney, Australia, November 4, 2011 – Yahoo!7 today launched MarketDash, a free finance app for iPad, giving users quick and easy access to investment portfolios and related news while on the go.

MarketDash is specifically designed for investment-savvy users who want to track their finances, follow relevant companies and read local stock related news stories from Yahoo!7.

MarketDash gives users access to real-time tracking of stock quotes throughout the trading day, up-to-the-minute market movements by price, percentage or market cap, and stock performance comparisons at a glance.

The app takes advantage of the iPad’s multi-touch capabilities, allowing users to manipulate views of stock charts, scroll across hours, days or months of market action and even compare multiple stock tickers in one chart.

Sue Carter, Head of News and Information, Yahoo!7 said, “MarketDash provides Australian investors with a convenient centralised storage of portfolios and watch lists. The iPad app provides a multi-touch user interface, making it easy for investors to find real-time market data and keep on top of their investments while on the go.”

For advertisers, MarketDash offers a platform to take advantage of the features of the iPad and reach a highly engaged finance-specific audience.
