Bloomington, Illinois – Chimp Studios today is proud the announce the release and immediate availability of Stock + Pro 2.0, the most reviewed stock tracking app on the Mac App Store. Among the dozens of new features and enhancements, Stock + Pro 2.0 delivers a redesigned retina user interface, interactive charts, realtime quotes, and a streamlined news reader. The app also provides a scrolling stock ticker in the menubar or on the desktop to give at-a-glance stock information.
“We’ve raised the bar with Stock + Pro 2.0,” says Chimp Studios executive director, Andrew Schenk. “Our goal was to add the most popular feature requests while keeping the app effortless for new users to pick up. We believe Stock + Pro will continue to be an indispensable tool for Mac investors who want both quick and in-depth market data.”
Some of the most interesting new features and enhancements in Stock + Pro 2.0 include:
Fresh User Interface:
The resizable, fullscreen enabled, retina-ready UI is easier than ever to use. The taller watch list accommodates more stocks on the screen at a time and the larger font sizes make reading easier on the eyes. Additional market indicators can be viewed in the watch list by double clicking on columns. The new sorting feature makes it incredibly easy to see big market movers.
Stock charts have been rewritten from the ground up. They are now interactive and capable of filling the entire screen. Users can now add multiple overlays to the same chart. Available overlays include SMA, EMA, Bollinger bands, parabolic SAR, and daily volume. Hovering over a chart will display historical data making trend analysis a breeze.
Company news articles are now displayed in a separate, resizable window, but still retain the Reader functionality that strips out ads, sidebar content, and other distracting clutter. Users also have the option to display the original article or open the article in the default browser.
Realtime quotes are available for select exchanges. Over 55 exchanges with stocks, bonds, commodities, and indices are supported around the world.
Built In Help:
New users will be greeted with a redesigned welcome tutorial to help familiarize them with the app. Existing users can review what has changed to see what new features are available. Frequently asked questions and developer support are both available from the main toolbar.
