    Just downloaded it. Really slick interface. Updates on the fly. Compliments the Bloomberg app rather nicely.

    Nice, but I still wish that you could just change the built in stock app to 'Google' instead of 'Yahoo'. Google gives real time quotes.

    Great app, highly recommended.
    Just got a notification when Apple's figures came out.

    It would be nice if it gave PK stocks as well but many traders don't deal in PKs.

    Does anyone know if push notifications are charged like text messages?

    I don't have a text plan so push notifications @ $0.20/ea (if charged like text messages) are going to get expensive fast.

    This went in the spot my WSJ app was in since WSJ wants to extract even more money out of hard-copy subscribers.

    I'm usually johnny on the spot when it comes to downloading updates for all my apps but when I heard of this change for the WSJ, this is the one update I've never installed. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that so long as I don't install the update I can still have access to the full content.

    does anyone know if there is a ticker symbol to monitor the daily price of crude oil? For example yesterday it closed - .97 to $78.15

    It's in there by default. Hit markets then commodities.
