First of all, there is a Pro version that you can buy, and they want to make sure you don't miss your chance. There is a "Pro Upgrade" button right next to a "More Apps" button at the top of the main stock-watching window.

Note that this is NOT a tool for trading - it is only to keep track of your stocks' gains or losses. There is no info for bid/ask/, opening price etc.

Right off the bat I hit a bug:
When you open the app, you get to a Preferences window. There are 2 checkboxes on top, then another below for enabling Cloud Sync. And there are email and password boxes to fill in if you do enable syncing. That's it - no more options.

I do not want to sync, so I left the box unchecked and hit the Save button. IT DOESN"T SAVE!
Another tiny box pops up that says "Ok," and there's an "OK" button. When I click the button, the small window disappears, but I'm right back at the first window. I tried checking/unchecking the boxes and hitting Save, but it didn't work.

I quit the app and re-opened, and the window didn't appear. But I needed to re-check the 2 top boxes, so I opened the preferences and the same thing happened again!
I discovered that clicking the red "close" button makes it go away, and your prefs are saved anyway.

The stock selection window sucks.
I entered a symbol in the search box and 6 stocks were found. The first time you click one, it turns grey instead of the normal highlight color. Click it again and it is highlighted. Double-click it and the text appears to enter edit mode, but you can't edit it - as soon as you type a character or hit Delete, the text becomes uneditable again. WTF?
Why can't I simply highlight which stock I want, and hit Enter? Or at least double-click it to add it to my list of stocks.

When I want to add another, I hit the "Add Stock" button. Instead of presenting me with a blank search field, the last entry is still there, and the related stocks are still listed below. I've already added that stock to my list, there is absolutely no reason for it to still be in the search window!

I was not allowed to add the Dow Jones Index to my list! It appeared in the search window when I entered "DJI," but when I select it the "Add Stock" button disappears. I can add any of the other 9 entries in the window, just not the Dow. WTF?
I was able to add the NASDAQ no problem.

I should also be able to change the font, because I do not like the one that's there.

I appreciate that this is free, but it seems to be a buggy beta version. It certainly ain't ready for prime time.

I should note that the developer's motto is "We Do Apps."

It's not "We Do Apps WELL."
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
