The Avanza Bank Mobile app allows an easy and safe way to monitor your financial holdings. You can trade stocks, exchange funds, compose your own lists to follow favorite stocks and check current exchange rates through live tiles. It is also possible to follow global indexes and keep up with the latest news from the financial sector.

Veryday managed to make me excited about a banking/stock exchange app. That is a great accomplishment. I might even try to learn a bit about the stock exchange market so I’ll have use of this app. By the way, very nice use of Semantic zoom – it made my day!
