Pretend to be Stock Savvy with My Stock Ticker Lite

Who says Android isn’t for the business-minded? Thanks to a little help from XDA forum member HyprGeek, your Android-powered smart phone can now be set up to feign some productivity right from the comfort of your home screen. Though unfortunately, its effects only manifest themselves between your Angry Birds sessions.

Supporting 25 different stock exchanges and allowing your choice of up to 5 stocks, this app, this app provides great versatility for all your faking needs. And your tablet need not feel left out, as this live wallpaper works on screens of all sizes and in both orientations. In the words of the developer:

Have you ever wished for a stock ticker for Android, just like the one on TV?
Your wish has been granted!

The world is in an economic crisis, and we need a constant update on the market and our investments.
Get My Stock Ticker and stay updated with the latest Stock Quotes in Real Time*.

Features:

– Beautiful HD live wallpaper
– Real-time stock updates*
– Adjustable tracker speed from Slow to Very Fast
– Place the tracker bar anywhere on the screen, with just a tap

* Real time stock quotes subject to specific exchange.

So, continue on to the original thread to get started pretending. Oh, and for those who actually want to keep tabs on their investments, I suppose this can be useful as well.

But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
