Hello financial gurus!
After taking my newborn son home from the hospital last year, I sat down and redesigned the app from the ground up using feedback that we have received from users. Almost every part of the app has been reworked in some shape or form and the result is spectacular. We think that you are really going to enjoy using this software.

Getting to Know Version 3
The backbone of version 3 is the new sidebar. The sidebar contains all your watchlists, portfolio summary (pro feature), announcements, and handy links to help articles and social media.
Charts have been completely reworked to be more beautiful and functional than ever before. Choose arbitrary time periods to view or switch over to the new Heat Map visualization to see the entire watchlist as a color coded grid.
We have put together a great and informative tour within the app to give you a more intimate look at the app. Just go to Help > View Quick Tour.
Q. Is this a free update?
A. Yes. Existing v2 Pro users will receive version 3 at no additional charge.
Q. Will 10.8, 10.7, or earlier systems be supported?
A. No. Some of the new features in version 3 require at least OS X Mavericks or later. In order to provide the best and most consistent experience we have set the minimum requirement as 10.9 or later.
Q. Where did the News/Details/Etc go?
A. The new version is highly compartmentalized. Most items can be found by going to the “View” menu. This help article goes into further detail.
Q. I don’t like the new version, can I go back to v2?
A. If you have a backup, then yes otherwise no. Apple does not provide us with a secure way of downgrading users.
Q. There are new symbols in my ticker.
A. We added some additional default symbols. You can remove them or any other problematic symbols by following this help article.
Q. How do I add a new watchlist?
A. Click on the ‘+’ button at the bottom of the left sidebar. See here for more detailed instructions.
Q. What’s the difference between the Mac App Store version and your Web Store version?
A. They are very similar products. The Web Store (Direct Download) version is updated more frequently than the MAS version. A more in depth description of the differences is available here.
Q. My Question wasn’t answered here
Thank you to all of the alpha and beta testers. We are looking forward to taking Mac investment software to higher and higher levels.
