Yahoo has finally gotten around to updating its long-neglected Yahoo! Finance app. The delay has puzzled many, especially since Finance is one of the most well-respected and well-known properties in Yahoo’s portfolio. But whatever the reason for the wait, it appears its been worth it.

Remember all the praise Yahoo got for its Weather app? The new Finance app deserves the same recognition. It has received a complete visual makeover worthy of iOS 7 with beautiful new stock charts and portfolio lists. It also adds the ability to deliver push notifications for breaking news and adds interactive real-time charts with new gestures including panning, pinch to zoom, and more. Here’s the full release notes:
