Bloomberg launches business news, stock tracking app for Android tablets


Bloomberg for tablet

Last fall Bloomberg released an Android app for checking stock quotes, watching market trends, or viewing the latest business news on your smartphone. Now the company has launched Bloomberg for Tablet bringing the same features to tablet-style devices running Android 2.1 and up.

Since the new app isn’t made exclusively for Android 3.x Honeycomb tablets it doesn’t feature any Honeycomb-specific design elements. Instead it’s simply designed to look better on a large display than the smartphone app. Fonts are bigger and there’s a new multi-pane view for news headlines. When you click a headline to read an article the story will appear in a column on the right while you can use a column on the left to find additional headlines and categories.

While many tablet apps are Honeycomb-only, you can run the Bloomberg tablet app on devices running Android 2.x such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 and HTC Flyer.

Bloomberg for Tablet is available as a free download from the Android Market.
