Pros for v0.7.4:
>>Simple & sits on your Menu Bar without hindering your activities.
>>Shows the currency conversions & Stock as a cycle in the menu bar.
Cons for 0.7.4:
>> Option "Auto-start after logging in" would have made this application get 5 Starts.
>> Option to add the Stock symbols from various countries would have made this application universally usable & a tempting reason to buy (( Google Finance API supports stock symbols from various countries stock exchanges ))

Great little app. Does what it promises.

It would be nice if I could set some times when it doesn't update so that it isn't trying to update every 60 secs while the markets are closed and thus wasting bandwidth. Also you folks should start distributing this via the Mac App Store as it would be much easier to find and you would get more users.

Very nice and very minimal! I was wondering how to change the ticker feeds maybe to have a different provider other than google or yahoo. I was thinking maybe marketwatch.com as they provide a more up to date feed during trading hours

Really nice application. But does no longer work under Lion -- at least not for me.

Evidently it will not display the basic stock averages. It rejected ^DJI, DJI and other variants of the Dow Jones. For the S&P500, it rejected ^GSPC, INX and $SPX. It happily accepted individual company symbols. If you want the DJ or SP500 averages showing in your menubar, this application won't do that.

Hi,

Please refer to the FAQs at http://sm.tripmeter.in/faq.php for more details. For e.g. the correct symbol for ^DJI is INDU. This is a Yahoo requirement.

Thanks

I've been using this for 2 weeks now and love it. Thanks to the developer for making this a free app. It works exactly as stated. The developer seems to be very responsive, actively fixing bugs and adding new features. I'm looking forward to further improvements.

After watching it "fatal error" on launch --- and checking the developer's website --- it appears that this program V0.6.2 is Intel only.

From the developer:
We pulled support for PPC temporarily due to some issues with the PPC architecture. For now could you please use the earlier version which was PPC compatible?

http://sm.tripmeter.in/archive/stockmeter0.5.2.dmg

We are working towards supporting PPC again and will notify you once its available.

1. Anyone figure out how to add indices like .dji, .spx, .ixic?
2. Anyone else have unreliable news feeds and a suggested fix?
