    I just got this app as I was looking for a good stock manager app. Unfortunately this is not what I was hoping for, as it is basically just a ”launcher” to check a particular stock (that you must type in each and every time you open this app) with no way to remember your portfolio. Am I missing something or is this just a Yahoo Finance launcher?

    It's amazing that you would offer this as a ”paid” app without any portfolio ability!
    Edit: i just deleted this app and requested a refund. I very rarely write comments this bad but I just want to warn others to not waste money on a launcher! You can get the same thing by bookmarking "yahoo.finance.com" in your browser!!!!!!!

    Just in case anyone considers buying this app, I would suggest that you don't. See excerpt from e-mail below sent to me by the developer admitting that this app does nothing:

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    We are sorry to hear this. For refund's I believe you would need to contact Blackberry App World Customer Service, as they manage all transactions.
    Meanwhile I am updating the app to mention this is just a Stock Tracker application which does not have any ability to store favorite stocks.



    As mentioned in previous post, you can accomplish the same exact thing as this app by using your browser and bookmarking www.yahoo.finance.com. This app is useless!

    Folks, just use Google Finance. You can enter stocks and track them, and it's free.

    No offense, but the app they are trying to sell for .99 isn't even worth downloading if it was free.

    They lowered the price to $.99 yesterday after receiving complaints. It was originally $1.99!!!
    AND I CERTAINLY AGREE THAT THIS ONE IS IN THE "CRAP" APP CATEGORY.

    This is a great example of the junk available in app world. This app has no real function. It is just a mirror of a website. It doesn't even have the ability to save stock tickers, or even update the prices automatically.

    Junk. Junk. Junk. Save your money.

    Guys..I have changed the app to launch external news url's
    I have modified the app name to Stock Tracker just so it's not misleading based on feedback...
    Please note changes takes at least a week for approval..

    Now I feel better that you changed the name of the app!

    Don't take this the wrong way but you should just change the name of the app to:

    "This App Does Nothing Except Take You To Yahoo.Finance.Com".
    Sorry to be so rude but I'm just being honest.

    umm, no, you were on the right track this time. Totally useless application, and the low res icon was the harbinger of that very fact.

    I am actually quite relaxed. I am just helping the CB community avoid from paying for apps that do nothing. And yes, there are plenty of other ones that are bad too.
    And "dude", since this is your first post I somehow "smell" some association to the developer!
