How do you track your finances? We’ve got some killer official apps like Fidelity Investments and Markets & Me. But you can never really have too many choices right? So today I want to show you guys the Windows Phone version of one of my favorite apps for Windows 8 – SigFig Portfolio.
SigFig is a killer online service that you can use to track all your stocks, funds, 401Ks, and IRAs in real-time. There’s a Windows 8 app, web browser app, and now an app for Windows Phone. SigFig started out as a company focused on providing consumers with an easy way to view all their financial information and to make informed decisions. Here’s what you do with the app/service:
- See all your investment accounts in one place - including your 401k & IRA
- Track your stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs in real-time
- Use beautiful charts to check your performance, allocation, risk, and more
- Optimize your portfolio in seconds via our investment advice engine
- Sync with 60+ brokerages including Scottrade, Fidelity, E*Trade, and Vanguard
The app itself is nice. Launching it will give you your portfolio overview. You’ll see the total value of your portfolio, $ change, and % change. There’s also a performance chart, rotating your device into landscape will give you a full view and allow you to change some parameters with the chart. Swipe to the right and you’ll see all your holdings, top gainers and top losers for the day, advice for your portfolio, charts, and specific news for your portfolio.
The app is missing a few things that the big brother version can do on Windows 8. Namely pin specific stocks or accounts to your Start screen. This is version 1.0, so it shouldn’t be too long before this app gets that feature. Not just that feature, a few other things specific to Windows Phone 8, like lockscreen support or fast app resume. This app is also available for Windows Phone 7, so it’s probable that this was done to just get the app out and available to everyone.
While I would have liked some features from Windows Phone 8, it’s nice to see the app finally on Windows Phone. And I can’t complain for a free app/service.
SigFig Portfolio is available for all Windows Phone devices. Download it here from the Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app. And don’t forget to get the slightly more mature Windows 8 version right here.
Thanks for the tip Jon D!
