App Of The Day: CNBC Real-Time For iPad

If you own one of Apple's tablets and happen to follow the stock market, I can't imagine you'd ever need anything more than CNBC's Real-Time for iPad, a luxuriously large version of the much-loved iPhone and iPod Touch app.

What is it?

CNBC Real-Time for iPad, iPad, Free. A well-stocked stocks app with real time quotes, interactive charts, currencies, commodities, a customisable and flickable ticker, news, video, and perhaps most impressively, a slick design that makes it all somewhat manageable.

Who's it good for?

People who follow the stock market; business students; people who want something impressive looking to put on their iPads when it's just sitting there charging on their desks.

Why's it better than alternatives?

CNBC says it's the only stocks app that pulls quotes directly from NYSE and NASDAQ before, during and after market hours. It's free. And while I admittedly do not know much of anything about trading stocks, Real-Time seems to cram in just about everything one could ask for in an app like this.

How could it be even better?

If it would pick stocks to buy and sell for me.

You can grab CNBC Real-Time in the App Store for free.
