Apple iPad users now can get financial software products designed especially for the iPad.

Finantix S.p.A., Venice, Italy, says the financial planning, portfolio analysis, order management, alerting and client reporting features are designed to take advantage of the large, colorful iPad touch screen.

The iPad tools can be used on their own or combined with a financial institution’s existing systems, the firm says.

In the past, Finantix has developed financial tools for the Web and for the iPhone.
