If you've invested in some stocks you know the importance of being able to follow them at any time, especially these days when the markets are so volatile.

The iStocks widget lets you view all your stocks straight from your Dashboard.

Similar to the Apple Stock widget, iStocks displays symbols in a list with their current value and growth or fall.

The bottom section shows the progression of the value in a graph, which can be set from over one day up to over two years. You can sort, reorder and rename symbols and look them up for more information and data.

All in all, iStocks is highly similar to the Apple Stocks widget, except that it connects to Yahoo! Finance meaning you can show any stock symbol from any market around the world.

There are also five different color themes to choose from. If the widget is getting too crowded you can show different instances of it.

The only real limitation is that iStocks won't show you options, futures and bonds.

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.
