L, C, A Article - National App Week- Forbes Intelligent Investing Reviewed


 Here, Michael Banks of Corporate Group takes us through Forbes Intelligent Investing.
  
 What does it do?:
  
 The Forbes Intelligent Investing app provides investment philosophies and global economy insight from some of the world's most respected experts, including Steve Forbes himself. It has sleek design and it’s easy to navigate around the app and its menus. There’s a direct link to the 'ForbesInvestor' Twitter feed and interviews with top economists, CEO's, Nobel prize winners and authors – all experts in the financial sector. It also features rare interviews with financial luminaries at the Forbes Townhouse in New York.
  
 What’s good about it?:
  
 This app gives you a great insight into the world of finance from respected professionals. It’s up to date and current news features and enables the user to save favourite videos and features.
  
 What’s bad about it?:
  
 This app takes a frustratingly long time to open; with screen freezing issues for example the home page freezes consistently. What would have been a great feature is The Daily Steve', which promises to deliver daily quotes from Steve Forbes, but this section is empty. The interviews with top experts in the field should keep the content fresh and lively but just as you become engrossed in an interview, the video freezes. 
  
 Verdict:
  
 All the features promised sound great so it's a shame so many of them freeze, even with a strong internet connection. The ideas are strong but there are just too many features here that don’t work.
  
 Score:
  
 4/10
  
 Forbes Intelligent Investing is available for free on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/forbes-intelligent-investing/id310628790?mt=8
