14. Google Finance: The free app gives you mobile access to your Google Finance portfolios, letting you keep up with the companies you are watching and those in which you have invested.  With concern around Google’s limited app regulation for third parties, using a Google-run app may ease your mind.

and  last one app, that will take care of all your application needs:

15. App Brain: A shortcut to finding and installing apps is AppBrain. You load the AppBrain app on your phone, go to the AppBrain website and the two talk to each other. It’s not quite the same as installing apps directly from the Market via a web page, but it’s similar.
