Investing apps. A quick google search will yield hundreds of results. Everything from stock brokerage to news to even gambling apps will pop up. Once you narrow down the ones that are relevant, you’ll still end up with about 50 of them. So how do you determine the good, the bad, and the ugly?
Below, I go through my top three favorite apps for investing. These applications are what I use on a daily basis to evaluate and assess data. They provide quantitative and qualitative information to drive meaningful investment decisions.

Now you may say, wait. Webull is a brokerage account. Hats off to you. WeBull, however, is also much more. I have not been able to find an app that centralizes information in an easy to read manner like WeBull does. The app provides stock information along with press releases, analyst ratings, bid/ask orders, dividend information, and even cryptocurrency data, all with the swipe of a thumb and without needing to log in. Many apps require a log-in or don’t have the breadth of information that WeBull does.
The interface is easy to use and provides a one-stop-shop to review any data element related to a single stock. Many times I find myself quickly checking the app while I wait for the elevator or in between meetings. When looking at usage statistics on my phone, this app is almost always at the top of the list.
Borsa is one of my recent favorites. The app aggregates quarterly earnings calls and stores them for playback. Users are able to listen to earnings calls typically the day after (sometimes sooner) and analyze the company’s results. You can also view a schedule of upcoming calls. (The premium version allows for live listening and a few more features).
This app may not seem like the most intriguing but there is tremendous value in the capability. There is nothing more frustrating than needing to go to the investor page to pull earnings call information. This can be very laborsome during earnings season when multiple companies are reporting results.
Now, I can dedicate an entirely separate article on why you should listen to the earnings call, but the long and short of it is, you should want to hear first hand about what leadership is saying in regards to a company’s results and future guidance. Earnings calls many times can be a catalyst for the movement in a stock. This app needs to be a staple in your investing artillery.
Barron’s provides financial news, insights, and market analysis through push notifications directly to your phone. When investing, it’s important to stay on top of key information as it’s released and Barron’s provides all the necessary tools. The app also provides interviews and Q&A sessions with today’s leading fund managers. It’s a great way to get first-hand insight into the minds of industry leaders and titans of their trade.
The Dividend is a financial digest for all things money, market, and millennial. We strive to provide useful and applicable information for consumption in less than it takes for you to finish a cup of coffee.
