    by Lolz991029

    Good app!!

  • Can you add something

    by Meredih

    I got this App can you add the games for it? I want to watch it. It'd be a lot easier.

  • Stock Market App - Great!

    by Aldon7

    I can't log in to my account for some reason, but otherwise this app is extremely informative and interesting.

  • Much improved

    by Uclaglory

    I am surprised that finally they overhauled its app interface and I'm much impressed with this one much better than old one and they are catching up with cnbc ease of use reading information about the market

  • One of my three favs

    by Z87sammy

    My three favorite financial stock market sites are Market-watch, OptionSpreadStrategies, and Fox Business.

  • The mobile website is better

    by Paul Segal

    I prefer the layout of the mobile website when viewed on my ipad rather than the layout of the APP,I'm just saying....

  • Marketwatch Game App

    by lacrosseplaya

    I really think you should make an app that people can virtually trade from instead of having to use the website. It is very difficult to operate the trading on a mobile device.

  • Good app except...

    by Mpls Music

    ...even though you log in and say remember me you have to log in again every time you access the app.

  • I am first yaaaaaa

    by Send this to the Deep 6

    I love being first to rate an update.

  • Love the new app

    by jaredsc

    Love the new app -- besides QuoteStream (which you must pay for monthly) this is the best app. Only issue is that it keeps logging me out of the app every time I open it.

  • Much improved update

    by TechBolts

    I've been reading MarketWatch for years and am happy to see an update for the iPhone/iPad. Sync to portfolio is nice. Bulletins via notifications are a must have for any investor.

  • nice app, good news

    by davidab1

    really enjoying the new app so far. i like the features a lot and marketwatch gives me both the news i want and need

  • Games?

    by Block-a

    Playing a game for school, where are the games?!???!?

  • Brilliant!

    by BrynnZack

    This app is brilliant! So insightful and user-friendly! This will be my one-stop for market news!

  • Much better

    by Mrrocketman19

    The new update is much better.

  • Fantastic app!!

    by danirae425

    This app is a must have!

  • New app

    by ihr_nyc

    Confessed MW-phile; love the new app

  • Awesome app!

    by Vperfetti

    Love the added features and new look

  • No games section

    by False trader

    Is there a way that you can add a stock market game screen, or is it already there?

  • Wiped out my Watch List (yet again)

    by Ctibbals

    Reenter yet again? I think not. Bye.

  • The best part of the app was removed!

    by ray ny

    I was very disappointed that the premarket/after market data was removed from the watchlist screen. It was what distinguished itself from all the other apps. On the positives, news is finally fixed and login is added so you can just load your watchlist from the website which was much needed.

  • Not like the last version

    by IrishKushMan

    New version is garbage for my usage compared to the last one. Max 10 stock tickets and NO UP TO DATE NEWS ON THEM. Yes, new news, but none on my tickers. App just became nearly useless for me.

  • Doesn't compare to web version

    by Rettags

    It's very frustrating when an app can't compare to the web page on which it's based. I wouldn't bother with this app. There are plenty of apps which provide a more user friendly experience and with better data.

  • Still not right

    by Ackelley1500

    I had hoped that the update to the update would fix the problem of having to log in every time. Uh...nope!! Fix it!!

  • Not good

    by Cphtella

    You have to keep signing in to the app. And oftentimes my portfolio doesn't appear. Clumsy layout. Not easy to maneuver.

  • 2 Steps Back

    by Rij912

    Less functionality than previous version. Hard to easily get concise summary of market data. I won't be using this version.

  • Professional???

    by Anthonyhoorah

    Keep having to log in when I go back on the app. Very slow and crashes often.

  • Terrible Update!!!

    by _derekv

    Less functionality, enjoyed how easy it was to use the watchlist and watch prices especially before/after markets. Not so much now, and not customizable. Fail

  • Horrible...

    by Alext878787

    Were it possible to give 0 stars, I would. This is the first time I ever take the time to review an app and it's because I am very disappointed and frustrated. Ever since iOS 7 was released, this app has been garbage, crashing no matter what I do. I've written The developers directly and the response I get is just as horrible. Fix this and get your audience back.

  • Crap update

    by Miss Nin

    This new update is hopeless. I can't stay logged in which means every time I want to check my Watchlist I have to re-log in. What a complete waste of time!!

  • What ever happened?

    by c4rlosmarin

    You guys really blew it this time. This was one of my favorite iOS app and now it's useless. At least everything about logging in and my watchlist is broken.

  • Less worthy

    by QandA

    Not a fan of the update. I used to enjoy the automated voice reading of some articles, now lost? And the iPad version is poor comparison to the full website, so why bother. Perhaps there will be further updates.

  • Terrible terrible update

    by delgamat

    Read above. I personally do not like this new update. This app was my first nag go to app for any market info. Now I'm looking for a replacement. Too bad, so sad :(

  • Horrible Update

    by Xan6632

    The "Commentary Section" of Marketwatch doesn't show up on the latest update and rest of the site is totally confusing.

  • Can't sign in

    by Nate312

    I would like to do stuff with my account but it won't let me sign in

  • Horrible update

    by PoolSharkSSN#907186233

    Love added news but everthing is horrible. Sometimes you can't go back and have to start over from the front page, slow and unresponsive, quote bar is insanely small and nothing works fluidly

  • Update stinks

    by Just wanna use like Word

    I first see the watchlist is buried in menu. Then I notice my watchlist was cleared (thanks, now I have more to do). When I add stocks to it I learn it auto lists alphabetically& I don't see a way to change display order (hint: I think about 0% of people invest alphabetically so u might want to have an easy way to customize that). AND WHERE'S THE REFRESH BUTTON? The major market ticket is so slow my phone brightness goes down before it changes. Stop playing with something that works great- you don't HAVE to update an app 'ya know!

  • Don't upgrade!

    by Chappytini

    If you want to see after hours trades on the same watchlist page. Now you have to click the quote link to see current after hours quotes. Terrible; less functionality.

  • No bueno

    by Patric0968

    Version 2 only crashes for me upon opening. No bueno.

  • Terrible Update

    by FuzzySloth

    Brutal update. Needs more data and charting, less articles. We have the WSJ app for financial news. Can't log on and nothing is customizable. MarketWatch was one of the first apps I downloaded on my original iPhone. It's now useless and will be deleted.

  • Great!

    by Mattminhha


  • Cool app

    by Leo_09

    Love it all in one place.

  • Update for iPhone 5 screen already!

    by newbietech

    App still has iPhone 4 screen resolution. When will it support iPhone 5 resolution?

  • Good but needs Stock Exchange Game Capability on it

    by Km11773

    Good but it needs to include the online stock game as well

  • Ick

    by mike.t….

    There's no native ipad version and a big twitter ad takes up a large part of higher screen. At least I didn't pay for it...

  • Crashes

    by 444tiger

    Crashes everytime you ask for a quote on ipad

  • Market Watch

    by IAM Watson

    Good looking app but worthless if it crashes when you try to add your symbol.

    by Bewhales

    Crashes every time updating watchlist.

  • IPad version was great

    by floridaStyles

    Where is the iPad version? I paid $5.00 for it and now it's gone. That was a beautiful app.

    by Fourjnk
