We have listed five such Indian stock market and finance apps, which are quite handy for novice as well as veterans of the stock market.
For a vast range of devices
Trading and market monitoring tool
If you are looking for a free app to simply monitor the stock market, then the NSE Mobile Trading will prove to be extremely beneficial.

The mobile app has been recently updated to improve its streaming capabilities, and gets a new option to enable "ticker bar" from Settings. It is available for both iOS and Android users. This is a free monitoring app but users looking for more can take further advantage of this app by subscribing to it here.
Android app for NSE/BSE
The Stock Watch is one of the highest rated apps that lets Android users keep a tab on the Indian and global economy. It can be used as a tool to follow India’s most important stock exchanges. The app offers the latest Indian stock market news, NSE futures and options, equity futures and options, BSE/NSE intraday charts, and Indian company stock quotes. It brings live stock quotes (expect 2 to 5 minutes delay), stock tips from experts in the Indian market and has an easy to use "Stock Search" feature. The Stocks Watchlist keeps a close watch on all the stocks which are extremely critical for you. It lets you sort them by name, price, change and percent change. It brings all the latest business news and global indices under one roof.
Goes beyond stocks
The next in our list is the Yahoo! Finance app, offering a broad range of financial coverage. Once you download the app, it will ask you to select the region/country so that you get all relevant quotes. It covers a vast range of indices, and almost all information, be it the price of a commodity or the latest finance-related news. The app offers daily market summary and news, tracks tickers that are important to you and lets you add or remove stocks from the watchlist. You can even view your Yahoo Finance profile from a PC. The UI neatly organises the stocks, and lets you track them by offering real-time and after-hours data. In fact, you can go beyond stocks as the app allows tracking industries, commodities and more. The app can be downloaded on Android and iOS devices.
