Really interested in this.
But please add the Toronto Stock Exchange (The Stock Market, Canadian Stock Exchange | TMX Group) to the list also.
I see OSPTX on the third screenshot so I have hope...
Works just fine:
TSE quotes are 15min delayed though, while Canadian National Stock Exchange quotes are RT.
Top Stocks is a WebWorks application which is one of the native app choices for Playbook development, along with Flash/Air. Playbook doesn't really have a native UI framework, if I'm not mistaken. This will only come with Blackberry OS 10.

Regarding Cascades we should wait for BB World and see whether the UI framework will be only available for BB OS 10 or for PlayBook OS 2.x too.

AppWorld link pleae, I can't find it.
You guys did release it worldwide right? "All devices"/all carriers?
@robsteve Well, I could. But there are not many ways to mess up. The only thing I can think of is removing stocks from the watchlist (hard to do accidentally). And portfolios will be added with future updates, so it's not like someone could see your transactions.

It's almost a complete rewrite with only the core module that is responsible for fetching quotes remaining largely the same. Although the UI bears strong resemblance to webOS widgets, it's all custom made. With all dependencies on Mojo removed, Top Stocks should in theory work on iPad and Android tablets with all features and UI being the same. But I haven't looked at that yet. People have long asked to port Top Stocks to Android, but its browser has been lacking in features and performance. Playbook really shines in this area.
Guys, I'm still waiting for vendor registration approval. Submitted right before weekend, so probably it will take a bit longer because of that. Believe me, I'm very impatient too
Till then, a couple more screenshots for you that show after hours quotes and manual updates enabled.
To change the update interval you simply tap the "Manual/Auto Updates" label and select interval from the list. There simply was no space at the bottom of the watchlist for one more button, but I hope this clickable label solution will be intuitive enough.
