QuickStocks impresses at every turn, available free and ad-free

Published by at

It's not often you encounter an application which does, literally, everything right. If this was a formal review it would get over 90% - happily, there's a ad-supported free version so you can just try it for yourself. QuickStocks, as the name suggests, is a viewport onto the state of the stock market, showing the rising and falling of your most inspected shares, along with trends and graphs, all in a super slick interface. Screens and links below.

Here's QuickStocks in action - it works on any Qt-compatible S60 5th Edition or Symbian-powered handset:

Unsurprisingly, for a financial app, there's a disclaimer to step past(!); (right) the main QuickStocks interface, fully swipeable, showing a rich tableau of stats, not least colour coded prices to indicate rises and falls.

Tap on any stock and it expands to show a graphical panel, tap again on the blue period button and you can choose the time period required; (right) the panels stay expanded, so you can have more than one graph up at once.

It's easy to add stocks (or currencies, since these are also tracked) using the built-in stock search function. Stocks can also be deleted by tapping and holding on any for a number of seconds); (right) one of the pop-up ad panels - see the link below to get rid of these!

Highly recommended on every front. There's a free ad-supported version here, or a commercial ad-free version here for £4 in the Nokia Store.
