[prMac.com] Chapel Hill, NC - Toughturtle LLC, a developer of innovative solutions for the Internet and for Mobile devices, recently announced the release of a significant update to StockWatch, their Phone and iPod Touch App. StockWatch is an easy to use and intuitive market quote and portfolio tracking App that allows quick and easy tracking of your investments with personalized watchlists and portfolios all from the convenience of your iPhone or iPod Touch.
"The newest version of StockWatch, 4.01, is a major update to the software from the previous versions", said Todd Barnes, Lead Developer, Toughturtle. "The entire App was re-engineered from the ground-up with a whole host of new features and functions and an easy to use interface that is more true to the device's touch capabilities. We have listened to the suggestions of our users over the past two years and think we have come close to making StockWatch the best way to track your investments from virtually anywhere."
Now more than ever, you can track your investments similar to the way you do on your broker's website. StockWatch allows you the flexibility to create unlimited portfolios with custom naming functions and the ability to add a cash amount to the portfolio. Within each portfolio you can create unlimited watchlists that can hold an unlimited number of lots for you to track your gains and losses. Tapping on a symbol will allow you to see detailed information about that symbol including last trade, bid, 1-year target, EPS, and much more. In addition to the detailed symbol information, each symbol allows you read symbol-specific news feeds and ten different full screen charts powered by Yahoo! Finance.
"The next version of StockWatch, 4.02, has already been developed and is awaiting approval from Apple", said Todd Barnes. "It has some bug fixes in it, including the highly anticipated London Stock Exchange pence-to-pound conversion fix, AND some very exciting special features that we, and our users, are very excited about. We plan on announcing this new version at WWDC and look forward to hearing what everyone thinks."
