Google Finance Adds Support For Spain, Poland, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, And Argentina Stock Exchanges

Business is happening all over the world, and Google's finance tools are now ready to help you track a little bit more of it. The company has announced Google Finance has added support for indices, stock price movements, trading volumes and more in some additional countries.

The new arrivals are Spain, Poland, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina. This brings Google Finance's total supported exchanges count to 35. You can get access to all the data Google has on various exchanges through search results, the Finance website, and with Google's stupendously ugly Finance app. Seriously, that UI is straight Gingerbread. Because the new exchanges are tied into search, you can add them to Google Now cards as well.

Google Beats Analyst Estimates For Third Quarter Results, Stock Passes $1000 Per Share

Wall Street analysts always read the tea leaves to come up with predictions of how a company will perform each quarter. If said company does better, investors are happy. If it does worse, investors are angry. The financial system is really based on our primal urges. Today, investors are very happy with Google. The company that spawned Android announced Q3 earnings last night that beat expectations, and the markets are going wild – Google stock is currently trading over $1000 per share.

Bring Your Wallpaper Alive With Bubbleator

One of my favorite features of Android is being able to have widgets on my device. With just a few widgets, my important information can be a quick glance away. Unfortunately, widgets typically offer a limited set of information (e.g., the last five messages) and the lack of animation on the majority of widgets makes them feel more static than they really are. Even Honeycomb's widgets are fairly limited. Fortunately, Android's live wallpapers allow for a far more engaging experience and the Bubbleator live wallpaper takes advantage of that.

Full disclosure: Bubbleator is made by ARO, and I have recently been hired on as a developer at ARO.

Scottrade Releases Android App That Lets You Stream Real-time Quotes, Trade Stocks, And More [Video]

Scottrade, a popular brokerage firm, just introduced the official Android app that lets its customers trade stocks using their mobile devices.

In addition to trading, transaction history, balances, order status, and account management, which is obviously limited to logged in users, all of the app's other features can be used by anyone, even those without a Scottrade account. These include:

  • receiving real-time streaming quotes (I'm impressed that these are real-time even for those not logged in - not bad, if true)
  • detailed research tools, including stock price histories, charts, fundamentals, insider info, market news and commentary, earnings, options, etc.
  • price alerts
  • SmartText for technical analysis, which seems to be some sort of a help system that explains technical terms around the app

The features are detailed very well in the video accompanying Scottrade Mobile's release.

If you're the business-minded-Android-tablet-toting type, then grab your beloved Honeycomb device and fire up the Android Market, as a tablet-friendly version of the Bloomberg app is now live. With this app you can grab the latest news, market data, and portfolio information, as well as charts and graphs, so you can stay on top of the latest business trends.

Although the Market listing claims that this app will work on Android 2.1+, that doesn't seem to be the case, as I couldn't install it on my phone at all - only my Galaxy Tab 10.1. In its current state, the app is little more than a glorified, expanded version of the phone app, but I have little doubt that more Honeycomb features will be added as the application is updated.
