Bloomberg is great on the iPhone. Not everything you need just yet but it has major promise. Only thing I wish it had was the ability to change the time frame of the stock charts. I believe that you cannot change it from one year.

The Light Sweet Crude Oil symbol for the built in Yahoo iphone app is CLQ08.NYM
This is the front month futures contract (for August delivery).

So what do I type in the search area of bloomberg

its ask for company name and I tried crude oil and light sweet and it didn't have that one CLQ08.NYM in there :-(

Rotate the screen whilst viewing a security to view a chart. From there you can view anything between intraday and a 5 year chart.

While Bloomberg is the best stocks tracker at the moment, it does have number of annoyance. Creating portfolio is pain (you cannot filter out non-US tickers, for instance), there's no way to group stocks into a category (e.g., transport, utilities, technology), and it doesn't sync against Bloomberg's website.

I tried the Bloomberg but will just stick to the regular apple stock app which does for me what I need to know
