Watch List Mania for Android Keeps You in Control of Your Fincial Investments
Every once in a while, in addition to installing custom ROMs and themed applications, we may be feeling the need to get some real work done on our mobile devices. Luckily for us, XDA forum member dnaren has created the perfect application for this with Watch List Mania.
In addition to simply tracking current and historical prices, this stock market monitoring application also allows users to calculate how much has been gained or lost on a particular investment. In the words of the developer:
Watch List Mania is a simple application to track any stock or investment(ETF/Mutual Fund etc.) that has a ticker symbol.
Allows you to setup multiple watch lists and navigate them with the touch of your finger (fling). You can optionally enter cost information (number of units and average price) and track the growth of your investments. With the cost entered, the application displays the total or daily gain (loss) and the percentage of gain (loss) for each watch list.
You can also select to track the gain (loss) of each investment and the lists are displayed in pleasing colors. There are many configuration options to view, edit, and arrange the lists, automatically or manually refresh the stock quotes.
Stock Watch List application uses ticker information provided by Yahoo Finance. Not all quotes are real time.
* Sample Watch Lists and support for unlimited lists.
* Track daily or total gain (loss) of the investments and portfolios.
* Best use of screen space and color coded indicators for gain (loss).
* Stock Information with a big chart that fits your screen.
* Looks great on tablets and large screen devices.
