Apple’s Cluttered iOS 6 Stocks App

Apple’s Stocks app gets cluttered in iOS 6.

iOS6 Stocks app Clutter

The News portion of the Stocks app has become incredibly cluttered in iOS 6 with redundant text and text that has marginal utility.

Often, the news headline is repeated e.g. in the screenshot above. On a small screen, the redundant text takes up valuable real estate.

The previous versions of the Stocks app were better in this regard than the current one.

In addition, the text for news-source, date, and time can be reduced further, perhaps by just listing the source in this view.

Apple or Yahoo, whoever designed this app, should clean it up to provide a better user experience.
