Best CFA "Chartered Financial Analyst" Apps for Iphone, Ipad and Android

The CFA apps can be very helpful when preparing for the CFA level I and II, the heavy self-studying hours that represent the CFA program requires you to have an excellent time-management and  as you carry your phone wherever you go you will be able to review formulas, flashcards and study-notes of the CFA during lunch or when stuck in the traffic-jams.
CFA apps are on the market for few years already, and as the apps business is litterally booming, very good apps are now available at affordable prices.
You must keep in mind that these apps are just helpful for reviewing important topics, formulas, but the major part of your preparation should be done using CFA  textbooks and study notes.
