The new version focuses on three major areas of improvement. The first is better navigation to ensure that users can easily access news and market information.
The app upgrade also offers better offline capabilities, so users can access pertinent information during travel.
Finally, the app adds new features that include Instant Bloomberg, Bloomberg Industries, and enhanced charting capabilities.
“We have seen — over the past three years — the number of subscribers accessing our platform on a mobile device double and more than half access the platform via multiple devices,” wrote John Waanders, head of Bloomberg Anywhere Mobile, in a blog post.
“Bloomberg Anywhere was created with this in mind — and as the computing habits of our subscribers (current and future) evolve, we will continue to evolve alongside them to deliver the information and services they need and expect — anywhere, anytime.”
Bloomberg Anywhere is also available for Android and BlackBerry 10. The iOS flavor runs on both the iPhone and iPad. It is free in the Apple App Store for Bloomberg Professional subscribers.
