Simple idea: creating financial app on iPhone for this part of the world

I came across this interesting post about Google engineers making a finance app for android.

we added more features with the aim of allowing users to get stock quotes, market data, and news as fast as possible. If you are following the markets throughout the day, check out the real-time streaming quotes in your portfolio, fast stock look-ups with search auto-suggestion, and 'recent quotes' to make it even easier receive quotes on-the-go. For each stock, you can see detailed quotes, charts and news, and any change you make to your portfolio automatically syncs up with the Google Finance website.

It was something I think will be useful and went about looking for a iPhone version. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one that covers this part of the world. I think this is something that people will find value in.

What is interesting is the things you can build upon this financial app. Since you can track your portfolio, why not allow users to share their trading results and build a Covestor equivalent for the mobile to disrupt the asset management industry?

Alternatively, why not combine the financial app with the StockTwits idea and let the community talk about news related to companies. I think this is something very useful, especially in this part of the world where financial coverage is poor.

Any developers want to build this with me? : )
