ycoStock is a simple stock program that manages a list of your favorite stocks. Stock information such as stock values, changes, and volumes can be obtained from Yahoo Finance website at a regular time interval.
Your favorite stocks can be assigned into a number of groups so that you can get and display stock information of the whole group at the same time. Each stock can be assigned to multiple groups so that you can organize your stocks to appear in a number of your stock profiles.
Also you can select your hot stocks and put into the Home Screen as stock widgets which will be updated automatically. By long-clicking any unused area in the Home
Screen, you can select "ycoStock" after the list of widgets are displayed. Once the "Select Stock" screen is displayed, you can either enter a new stock or select the stock from the group or stock list.
Once the stock widgets are displayed in the Home Screen, they will be updated automatically at regular time interval. Touching any of the stock widgets will bring up the ycoStock main screen in the same manner as touching the ycoStock icon in the launcher. From the main screen, you can manage your stocks such as adding new stocks, deleting stocks, and sorting stocks etc. You can also use the "Settings" screen to change the settings of ycoStock.
Only stocks that lives in the stock widgets are updated automatically, the other stocks in the group or stock list can only be updated manually using the "Show Stock Value" option in the option menu. This can minimize the data usage
and in turns the battery usage significantly if you have quite a number of stocks in your stock list.
The data and battery usage can also be further minimized by disabling the automatic update at the time when the stock market is closed for trading. You can also disable updating of stock information on a per-group and per-stock basis. You can simply long-press the group or stock to start or
stop the automatic updating function of this group or stock respectively.
