New Research Tool Adds Bloomberg Financial Data/News to Top of Any News Articles

UPDATE: Download the Bloomberg Lens Chrome extension here.

From Nieman Lab:

A new tool built for Bloomberg by the New York-based mobile and web development agency Postlight cuts the fact-finding process for those interested in the financial context around companies and people that appear in the news to a single step. Called Bloomberg Lens, the tool will find companies and people names in any news article — not just Bloomberg’s — and overlay key facts such as stock prices or a person’s previous company affiliations.


Lens is available as a Chrome extension, and to anyone on iOS, and is coming soon to Android devices. The feature will also be added for Bloomberg app users (two to 2.5 million monthly active users, according to a spokesperson).
