International quotes on your Dashboard

Cyril Roger

Notes

Updated and better 1-day and 5-day intraday charts.

Pros
  • Clear display
  • Sort and reorder your symbols
Cons
  • Very similar to Apple Stocks widget
  • Options, futures and bonds not supported

The iStocks Widget displays quotes and historical charts for international stocks, indices and currencies. The widget is provided as freeware and is based on Apple’s Stock widget, which is shipped with Mac OS X.

"Acceptable but Lacking Stock Widget"

As a starter app for people new to monitoring their stock holdings, iStocks is quick and easy, both to set up and to glance at for an instant sense of the ups and downs of the market--and your investments.

Where iStocks falls quite short is in the ability to organize your stocks once you've added them to the Widget. You can choose to sort by performance, but the only way to customize the organization is to remove the stocks you'd like to group together and then re-add them in the desired order.

Further, while changing the background color might be fun and pleasing, it would be more helpful to be able to color-code the stock listings themselves--i.e., one color for mutual funds, another for NASDAQ, etc.; or one color for your actual holdings, another for those you're simply "watching."

Pros
  • Easy to set up and grasp at a glance
Cons
  • Nominal customization options discourage long lists of stocks
