10 must-have apps for traders

Dropbox
Platform:
Android and iOS
Cost:
Free for up to 2 GB, costs vary beyond

Dropbox is similar to Evernote in that it helps keep you organized, but it differs in that you can store anything in your Dropbox folder, not just notes. At its core, Dropbox is a cloud-based storage system, meaning you can place files from any Internet-connected device in it and then access those files from any other Internet-connected device. This allows you to back up your files in a secure location and keep everything organized.

Because it is meant to work as a back-up, Dropbox gives you a fair amount of storage for free at 2 GB. If you need more than that, you can purchase it on a monthly or yearly plan. 

Yahoo! Finance
Platform:
Android and iOS
Cost:
Free

Yahoo! Finance is like the Swiss Army Knife of financial apps. Although it may not do any one thing better than everyone else, it does a lot of things at an adequate enough level to make it useful to almost anyone. Some of the things it can do include looking up stock quotes, getting some market analysis, providing some charting capability and giving access to some news.

Although you’re not going to be placing trades or doing serious analysis from it, Yahoo! Finance shines in its ability to give you just a quick glance when you need to find something in a hurry.
