Bloomberg Now Delivering Real-Time Financial News to iPhone, iPod Touch

The days of traders dwelling exclusively in the pits of major trading exchanges are over. With equities markets finding their new home in the digital age, the ability to trade via computer and mobile devices is the new standard in financial management and investing.

And the folks at Bloomberg, the global business and financial information and news provider, know it.

Catering to the new needs of Wall Street titans, on Monday Blooomberg announced its new Bloomberg Radio+ App for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch.

Available now in the App Store, Bloomberg says this is the first radio app where listeners can view real-time charts, get the latest market information and news, and access guest bios — all while listening to the most preeminent minds in business and finance.

“We look forward to bringing Manhattan’s number one radio station to a global audience,” said Oke Okaro, general manager and global head of Bloomberg mobile. “Now people around the world will have 24/7 access to Bloomberg Radio’s market-moving news and analysis on their terms.”

The Bloomberg Radio+ app gives listeners the flexibility to hear live breaking financial and business news 24-hours per day as well as download a vast on-demand library of shows and interviews they can listen to at their convenience. For example, rather than having to wait for the regularly scheduled market updates at the 20 minute and 50 minute marks, people can now get that information on demand, download it onto their device, and listen to it offline where and when they want.

Best of all, the Bloomberg Radio+ App is available for free.
