Platform integration features in the app include voice commands for U.S. English users (e.g. tell your phone to read the latest MarketWatch headlines), lock screen integration, and a Live Tile that shows the latest news headline.
Overall performance of the MarketWatch app is excellent and it easy to see why Microsoft has chosen to highlight this as an app addition to Windows Phone in the week of its //build/ developer conference. Not only does it make good use of Windows Phone's platform specific features, it also has a design that use the principles of Modern design to deliver a high density of information in a highly effective manner.
