Since the site was launched by CEO Howard Lindzon in 2008, StockTwits, the 24/7 financial community where traders and investors share market insight, information, charts and news in real time, has grown to well over 150,000 members, and has developed a like-minded, community spirit based on the generosity of ideas.
The service has always leaned heavily on Twitter (it’s built into TweetDeck), and while the bulk of traffic is web-based, StockTwits has had apps available for iPhone, iPad and Blackberry for some time, for portfolio checking on the go. Now, users of Android-powered smartphones can enjoy the StockTwits experience while they’re on the move, too.
The app is called StockDroid, and it allows users to easily and conveniently monitor their portfolio in one place by adding stock symbols and quickly switching between them. Charts and news are delivered by investment blog Abnormal Returns.
StockDroid is available for download now on the Android market
