PowerTicker, the desktop stock ticker for the Mac, gathers information from a growing number of online financial sites around the world. Today, Galleon Software released its first online collection of source files to allow PowerTicker customers to quickly add new sources and keep their copy of PowerTicker up to date.
PowerTicker is a program that queries financial Web sites, reformatting the information it receives into an animated stock ticker and a collection of reports. You can configure PowerTicker to report on stock quotes in your portfolio, calculate your current investment value, and even convert international currencies at current exchange rates.
Source file upgrades are a free service to all PowerTicker customers and are supported in PowerTicker 2.0 and later, Roy Schulze of Galleon Software, told MacCentral. Previous MacTicker customers can download the latest version of PowerTicker and take advantage of an ongoing US$9.95 upgrade offer. The full version of PowerTicker is sold online for $49.95. A demo version is also available.
