Ratings and Reviews
This was a one-star review, but...
I really hated this app when it replaced the old one: Bloomberg has gone low-brow with its news sections, which is a terrible shame. The reporting used to be really outstanding and, for me, that was what Bloomberg was all about. The Reuters app is now much better for proper market reporting.
But, to give them their due, the market data sections of this app are very good — the best out there I think (have recently been looking). For example, you can get a historical chart of any currency pair and even generic US, European and Japanese bond yields. No other app provides that and Bloomberg is doing it better than ever. If you want enough information to understand what is going on, this is the app for you.
So rated as what it is (a data app) rather than what is was (a news and data app), this app is five-star.
Great watchlist functionality
This is perhaps the best online portfolio tracker in terms of the breadth of market data available. And better yet, it’s free!
* top notch market data quality and coverage (ie: well outside of US markets).
* portfolios sync’d between iOS and desktop web app
* useful visualisations, eg: colour gradients to show holdings’ current P&L state
Could be improved:
* ability to group instruments within portfolios
* ability to define custom views with user-chosen columns/sort order
* full-screen chart feature requires flipping device to/from landscape isn’t v. convenient w/ a 12” iPad! There should be buttons to achieve this on iPads.
I would gladly pay a subscription for additional features such as:
* market data graphs with customisable time spans
* access to additional financials, eg: dividend history/calendar
* call level alerts
I suppose Bloomberg don’t want to cannibalise their professional subscriptions but I really think there’s a retail investor tier that would love the ability to subscribe for access to some of these features...
Still not back to previous usability.
Although it's slowly getting better it's still nowhere as useful as it was before the disastrous "upgrade. The trick still not quantified is to use both portrait and landscape modes but even then some entries show your costs and loss/profit others simply don't.
Probably the worst so called "upgrade" of any app but not surprising when you look at the age of the "team" that did it.
The app has lost every part of its usability and information and now, with its bright colours looks as if it's designed for 7 year olds. You can't blame the kids that rewrote it but the executive at Bloomberg who gave it the o.k. to release it.
