Stock Data Application Posted

I have posted the first edition of the Stock Data application. This version was formatted for a Nokia 6680 (176 by 208). It will work on slightly different screen sizes but not 320 by 240. I will post a version for QVGA in the next couple of weeks. I have not done extensive testing but I have found a few problems. Please let me know if you find any problems.

Start by entering stock symbols into the “Symbl” column. Use the navigation keys on the phone to move the selection rectangle to the first field under the title “Symbl”. Press the select button to allow entry into the field. Enter a stock symbol then press enter again to exit the text editing mode. Once you have entered one or more symbols hit the right softkey “update” to initiate a look up for the symbols that were entered. If you have a connection the application should update the stock data. If there is no connection it will wait the number of minutes set for the interval and try again. The application updates on an interval that can be adjusted under the menu and settings. You will also notice two dates near the top of the application “Last Trade” represents the last time that a stock was traded while “Last Update” is the last time data was loaded from the server.

You can download the sis file at the following url:

Simply select the file “StockQuote.sis” and click the button called “Save to my computer”. When you install the application you can launch it from the icon in the application folder. The icon is

What can I say I am not an artist. I am looking forward to any feedback you might have. Thanks
