Excellent free application. A different take on bond markets. You cannot get the same depth of research summarized and delivered to your phone from any other financial news app. Videos are very good, too.
This app helps get me through the day. I use it so much I placed it on my iPhone's "Dock." It is almost always running, sometimes more than the Messages app. The multimedia options is very nice, and the Daily Trivia is loads of fun. Also, the price is second to none! Please go ahead and install this app. You'll thank me later.
I'm not sure what the S&P guys are trying to accomplish with this app. BBG offers far more FULL reports by S&P staff on a daily basis than is included in this rarely updated app. I will continue to monitor this app for the next month but if there aren't dramatic changes to this sclerotic cr@p I will delete it.
