Tracking news and stock prices for companies you own shares of or are interested in is near the top of a lot of people’s minds. The various governmental upheavals and the mega-earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan continue to affect the day-to-day financial markets. Google enhanced their mobile web search (Google.com) for the iPhone and Android phones (2.1 or newer) to provide a rich visual presentation as the result of any stock ticker symbal search (e.g., GOOG for Google or AAPL for Apple).
The information display for a stock ticker symbol search looks very good. Multiple pages of information can be viewed by tapping the tiny blue bottons near the bottom of the display. I should emphasize the word “tiny” because they are so small that I think some people may find it difficult to press one of the five blue buttons at the bottom. I know I did although I must admit that I was able to accurately press each button. It did require much more deliberate fingertip aiming than I prefer, however.
Note that thi enhanced financial information user interface does not show up when using an iPad.
