I see there is another update, but this update does not seem to be available to people who bought via developers web site. I emailed the company and they tell me the updates only apply to the AppStore version.

Suddenly StockSpy is wiggin' out!

When I open it, my homepage is displayed correctly, but when I select any of the stock symbols in the left column, ALL the chart data is upside down, as if it's mirrored! All the month names, graphics, everything!

And if I select any of my personal stock symbols, the app crashes after 15 seconds. Doesn't crash if I select the Dow or Nasdaq symbols, only my personal stocks.

Must be related to my recent Mavericks upgrade I'm guessing, although that's a strange bug. I deleted the app then replaced it and it's still happening.

I can't contact the dev. because they use social media which I don't use.

BEWARE that this app tries to connect to doubleclick.net and adserv.stocksite.com.
So even though you've paid for this app, they still want to send you ads!
MAKE SURE YOU BLOCK THEM WITH LITTLE SNITCH OR HANDS OFF!

Just noticed I'm using an old version, so that may be the problem.

Not going to upgrade though since I don't recall giving permission to receive ads when I bought it! VERY UNSCRUPULOUS!

I noted that MacUpdate desktop shows that the current version is 2.4, but when I emailed the company this morning to check, they said that 1.9 was the current version.

For those you bought StockSpy v1.2.1 on the MacUpdate Promo, where can one download version 1.3?

Email the developer at support@stock-spy.com and he'll send you a redeem code. I just did and he responded immediately.

Initially I was not impressed, but the software has grown on me. I like the ease of adding new stocks, how it offers a basket of other info sites and keeps up to date on news, even filtering my list based on best performing, with timely price updates. Especially like the custom link addition of websites.

Would be great if it had a notes section to record data, or track your portfolio priceXquantity=

But other apps can do that, StockSpy does a lot for web based and news research. I especially like seeing the bubble news appear

Could developer tell me why I see another item in your website that charges further if one wants something more after buying this app.?

This app. is not a full version? Any one that wants to use full functions must pay for another charge?! I didn't see the information in the introduction page!

Could developer explain to us what is the difference between the two?

No other purchase necessary to use StockSpy. This is a full version. The product sold on Stock-Spy.com is an older version designed for PC. This version is designed specifically for the Mac and the Mac App Store. I hope this helps! Thanks.

The company ignores inquiries about the features and the included stock markets. They even went so far to delete a question of mine from their Facebook wall without comment.

The demo version from their homepage looks completely different than the screenshots. There are only negative comments about the app in the AppStore.

Also... The version on Stock-Spy.com is an older Java based version designed for PC and cross platform use. This version is designed specifically for Mac only is the same app as the one found in the Mac App Store. There is actually a greater breadth of features in this version than the older Java version on Stock-Spy.com.

Calvin, any new on adding Luxembour and other Euro stock exchanges, otherwise the app makes no sense for many european users ?

How does the app update: through Sparkle ?

@Mhoutman - StockSpy works with many European exchanges. Unfortunately Luxembourg is not supported. See http://stock-spy.com/faq.php. We have our own update mechanism.

I have been using this for about a week and I have to say I really like the way all the big financial pages on the internet are brought into one app with the integrated browser. I typically use the portfolio I have setup in Google Finance, but I like this better for news and prices.

The charts could use some more options besides just daily, weekly, or monthly and it would be nice to pick a different chart or even create custom charts for each ticker symbol. Still I like what it does and the price is good.

I have been using Stock Spy since 1.50 now.

It is a very nice source of info on most markets

In some occasion the feed fetched is totally unrelated, but it is not a big nuisance.

One big drawback is the lack of a " check for update " feature.

If you want the latest version you need to ask support from the developper.

If anyone experiences crashing problems upon start-up please report them to the developer at Stock-Spy.com

Also, make sure your system meets the minimum OS requirements before attempting to use Stock Spy.

Thanks!
