Manage your stocks and shares with StockDaddy Turbo for BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 11 Sep 2013 05:25 am EDT

I'm no expert when it comes to stocks and shares but I do know a great native BlackBerry 10 application when I see one. Unlike me, If you're lucky enough to have investments then StockDaddy Turbo is the perfect tool to have on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone to allow you to keep track of how much money you are making or losing. 

Using live stock quotes from Yahoo and Google, StockDaddy Turbo does much more than allowing you to manage your stocks from the palm of your hand. As you'll see from the below list of features the developer of the app has taken so much into consideration and this one's yet another example of how awesome using Cascades can be to build a quality BlackBerry 10 app. 

As you'll see from the video - the app has the typical user friendly user interface that we've now become so accustomed to. You will be able to build multiple portfolios containing your stock investments and the app will show you which are making and which are losing money. Clearly this is going to be the most important feature if you're watching stocks frequently but from within the main menu you'll also have instant access to the World Stock Index, Live Stock Quotes, My Watchlist - which will also appear in the Active Frame, News - which is ported in from CNBC and even a Currency Converter. 

There is a a free edition of StockDaddy, but if you are heavily reliant on getting the most out of your investments you certainly shouldn't mind parting with a couple of bucks for the Turbo version. 

Full features include: 

  • Search Live Stock quotes from 40+ world wide exchanges 
  • Create numerous Portfolios to choose from over 30+ world wide exchanges 
  • Dashboard custom designed for each portfolio to show all the vital stats to help make a better decision 
  • Some vital stats used in the Dashboard for a particular Portfolio are: Networth, Max Gainer, Max Loser, Todays Gain, Portfolio Gain, Total Investment. These metrics are calculated based on the live quotes 
  • Add Sold Stocks Info to actually determine the growth of the Portfolio
  • Watchlist to keep track of your favourite stocks (auto-updates based on user's settings) 
  • Dynamic Active Frames with the stocks in the Watchlist
  • Currency Converter 
  • Backup/Restore data to/from the Media Card and the Device 
  • Tutorials (can be turned off under Settings menu) 
  • Swipe-down gesture to change interval Settings for World-wide Stock Market Indexes, Watchlist and Active Frames 
  • Swipe-down gesture to open Help section to explain key metrics used in the Dashboard 
  • Connect StockDaddy Turbo with your BBM and help spread the word! 
  • Native Page to show 15+ world wide Stock Market Indexes 
  • Sort Sold Stocks based on Gain/Loss, Name or Sold Date 
  • Graphs for the last 5 days 
  • Send Support emails within the app for any bugs/feature requests/general comments

Manage your stocks and shares with StockDaddy Turbo for BlackBerry 10


First thought, "stockdaddy".. hmm. Not really the professional sounding name I'd like in a stock app. Awkward if someone sees that over my shoulder in the board room..

"StockDaddy" what's wrong with it?
btw, yes names can be deceiving. why dont' you read the description and see the screenshot and check if the content is worth the money?

yup, i had to take it out. The free version gave only the stats and had no live stock quotes. this is a huge upgrade from the free version (essentially from BB4 to BB10).
Why don't you give it a try!

whats the difference?
The stock quotes are live/realtime from Yahoo and Google for about 15+ exchanges (mostly North American and NSE india). Others experience a latency of about 15-20 minutes as no free live/realtime data is availble for those remaining exchanges. If i get a good response, will try to look for ways to get real-time/live data for all the exchanges currently offered!

The latency IS the difference. To me, "live" simply means that the quotes update continually with no user involvement, but if they are 15-20 minutes old then these live quotes are NOT realtime quotes.

I'll give you app a try to see what it offers compared to 'Stocks' and encourage your further development.

'Stocks' quotes for NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ are realtime, but I have no idea where the developer gets them or if he has to pay a fee for that. I've compared them to my broker's realtime quotes to confirm they're in fact coming in real time and not delayed. I only trade US markets so don't have any knowledge of any latency in foreign exchanges.

Thanks for following up and best wishes for your success!

so, i can pretty much confirm that NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ quotes are real-time. even if you create your portfolio with these exchange types, the data gets updated with realtime quotes.
I have researched enough and so as other Stocks app developer, they get the realtime and 15-20 min delay data from where I am getting. I use couple of different sources for different purposes and for these exchange types listed above, they provide real-time data (do it this way just to save user's bandwidth and data services cost, i had only 100mb of data on my phone to start with).
So, in short, 'Stocks' app data and quotes in my app, will essentially have the same data!
Thanks again!


Sorry. Was just finishing up a night shift. Didnt see/watch the video. I just saw in specs it says "Optimized for Q10/Q5" so thought its NOT optimized for Z10 ... as I figured if it was they would include that too.

Will try pay more attention at 5am ;)

Are you not able to see in your Z10 App World? I certainly can.
Optimized for Q10/Q5 means optimizing all the data to fit in a smaller screen, essentially using the screen real estate more wisely :)

'Stocks' is working fine for me; I use it every day and it's running right now.

What's your problem with it? Mine is only that the author is taking FOREVER to release an update with some really-trivial, but much wanted, improvements.

I agree, your favorite stocks app was my favorite too.
I released this app because I think I could a better job. just fyi, in the next update or two, you will see those much-wanted improvements that you would expect from your favorite Stocks app!

Ok, thanks. Can you answer my question (above) about whether the quotes are realtime or just "live"? I appreciate the fact that 'Stocks' provides realtime quotes even though I'm not a daytrader.

I think the Bloomberg app is going to be tough to beat. Cursory tracking of stocks is about the only thing needed in an app. Major change alerts for positions or stocks of interest get pushed via text/email from broker, and I have to think this is pretty standard practice.

Yup. Bloomberg is my new top app. The related news, video, and charts are superbly integrated to a level not seen in any other BB10 stock app I've seen.

These stock apps are nice but I always tend to go back to CNBC or Yahoo Finance mobile web. I was disappointed when E*Trade decided to not bring their mobile app to the Bold 9930 or BB10. That was the best stock app.

P.S. I'd prefer the "Turbo" be taken out of the name.

You filed this under the "BlackBerry Games" category on the main web page. You may want to correct it, it might mislead some readers.

LOL - if that was true people (educated people who understand) would not be losing money. With this stuff there is always a "random" factor which makes it sort of a game hence my comment... which was obvious joke in the first place ;-)

I temporarily blocked the free version. The free version did not have any live/realtime data, just calculated some stats based on your inputs. this one is a big upgrade from the free version.
would appreciate if you can just read the description

I still don't get why, given the audience BlackBerry has never had a stock stocks app on their devices. Maybe not a default app, but at least a bbRy made, quality native designed app

I know right? thats why people like me have to work our ass off to make an app inorder to cover a particular market!

at the end of the description, permissions are explained. you can turn them off and not use those features :|

Its actually good! Just tried it today and I was impressed. Well done a native app that deserves more love!
