I’ve been paying a bit more attention than normal to the day-to-day performance of my portfolio, and I’ve been looking for an Android app that would give me very basic information at a glance.
What I want:
Display of my actual portfolio, including total market value change today for each stock, and a total change today for the entire portfolio.
Display of the above information in a widget.
Not complicated, right? But I’ve yet to find something I like. There are no portfolio widgets, only stock widgets that don’t include the # of shares I own. Even if the app tracks that, it won’t display it in the widget. Most apps don’t track portfolios, period.
I’ve found a couple that almost work. Like Stock Watcher, for example. It will display a portfolio, or the current stock price, but not both at the same time. Seriously, since when is this rocket science?
I think I’ve settled on Stock Quote, which tracks the portfolio information well enough, but doesn’t have a widget, and Mini Stocks, which has a widget, but doesn’t display everything I want. I’m curious if anyone else has found better choices for this basic information.
