If you like to keep a close eye on your investments, what better way than by using your BlackBerry? BerryBlowApps has developed a great app just for this, called Stocks+. With Stocks+ you can display your stocks on your home screen. As the application updates in the background, the stock information on your wallpaper changes, so you always have up-to-date information right in front of you. You can specify pop-up, sound, LED, and vibration alerts for a change in stock value, difference between average of the day and current value (in %), and difference between 52 week average and current value (in %). You can also backup and restore your stocks and alerts.
BerryBlowApps let us know that they have just released an update to Stocks+, bringing it up to v.1.3. They've added a lot with this update, so if you already own the app you'll want to be sure to update it. If you don't own Stocks+, you can pick it up for $4.99, or download the free 10-day trial and give it a spin.
