Wall Street Journal Live app released for Windows Phone

If you fancy a bit of business news inside of your Windows Phone, there's a new app that you may want to check out. The Windows Phone Marketplace now has the official Wall Street Journal Live Windows Phone app available to download for free.

Interestingly, the app doesn't feature the actual articles that you might read in the newspaper or on the Wall Street Journal website. Instead, the Windows Phone app concentrates on news video to present its content. The app description said:

WSJ Live brings you live news and on-demand video directly from 2,000 reporters across the globe. With over 4.5 hours of live programming a day, you can stay on top of the latest in news, elections, markets, tech, opinion, lifestyle. You can also access the entire video archive of The Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal Live app joins a number of other high profile Windows phone apps that have been launched in the past few weeks. That includes new apps from Time magazine, the Daily Beast and Linkedin. It was recently revealed that the Windows Phone Marketplace has now released over 90,000 apps for Windows phone devices, and that number should reach the 100,000 mark by sometime in June.

Is that how it works on their iOS/Android app too? Seems pretty odd. I avoid WSJ based on their slant towards certain technology companies.

WSJ has 2 apps on iOS and Android; one is WSJ Live, which works just like the app shown in the article, and the other is called The Wall Street Journal (no "Live") and has articles as well as videos. As far as I know, WP doesn't have the latter.

Thanks for the info. I hope to see the latter showing up in the Marketplace too.

I LOL'd at the article picture posted... Yeah, Verizon's betting on Windows Phone. I just can't stand all of the support and love they have for it... lol

Seriously. I'm collapsing under the weight of all the Verizon advertisements for WP.

Wait ... no, I haven't seen a single one.

WSJ sucks. Last few days its been saying "Facebook is a hot stock".

Going down 20% in 2 days isn't a hot stock.

However, being the most-traded stock for days qualifies as "hot."

That's not a hard thing to beat, it's newly launched.
Anything when it first gets lauched that has a possibility of making money (or seeming like it will) will do well
