Is there and Android app being developed? Any ideas on how long till it's released? Or is that idea not even on the table? Any feedback from MarketSmith is appreciated.
We are considering an app for the Android but no official timetable for
development and release of the app though.
I would love to have an Android MarketSmith app!
This would be the best early Christmas present ever!
Taking a look at smartphone market share, iPhone has about 1/3 of android user base (18% vs 57%) so this would be most welcome (though of course its not as simple as that due to many variants of android and even same version number but different behaviour depending on physical handset)
Due to the 20% larger Galaxy III screen size compared to Iphone 5 (4.8 inch diagonal v 4.0), it is really not the best choice to be restricted to viewing MS only on the Iphone. Makes for a very tough decision between the two.
I have to say I am very frustrated with the lack of an Android app for Marketsmith.
This would not be such an issue if you had not chosen a proprietary Microsoft standard for the application instead of an open source cross-platform solution such as Java for example.
In a time when consumers are moving from traditional PC's to tablets and smartphones, your lack of support for the most dominant operating system doesn't make much sense to me.
I often use my smartphone and tablet to check the market when I am on the move, so being restricted to my home desktop computer for Marketsmith is very frustrating, especially when all stockbrokers I have checked supports Android.
I would have to agree need Android Apps,
Marketsmith response back in 2010 indicated a move in that direction.
Can an oupdate be provided?
Any guess as to how much demand there would be for this Android App?
It costs money to develop apps, products, keep the lights on. There has not been ONE post on the forums - Stocks in over a week. What does that tell us?
Ok, likely there are many like myself that have subscribed for years without really using the product too much, but would an Android app really drive sales for this product?
Returned here hoping to network and improve my investing skills, but it's difficult when the boards are so dead... Coming here just to check stock prices on an android app might do little to change that. And do you really have to have a MarketSmith android app to simply check stock prices? My wife's Apple phone has this as a basic home screen icon, so assume there are many others available for free.
Only my opinion;
The sooner the better for an Android application.
Compared to an earlier post, IBD today indicates 75% Android market share versus 15% IOS marketshare.
My intention is to make the large display of my new Samsung Galaxy III the only device I really need, compared to my iPad. I'll not renew a product I can't use on my chosen portal to my media..
I would also like an Android version of MarketSmith. I used to use the iOS version on an iPad, but I have since switched to an Android 7" tablet and an Android phone.
any news with the droid app???
We have no new developments on android at this time. Any new announcements will be made at www.marketsmith.com.
It's almost 2014 and I can't believe you guys still don't have apps for Android even any plans to develop one. Very disappointing. Is it no significant demand on current subscribers? My renewal date is coming and seriously thinking about cancelling subscription this time as I spend less and less time in front of computers and spend more and more on tablets and smartphones. As OS X user, I was impressed that you guys posted "how to fix MS on OS X Mavericks". I am sure that there are more Android users than OS X users. What are you guys doing? You can't ignore Android users forever.
Well.... they have been ignoring Android users for almost 4 years which is getting close to forever!
COME ON DO IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would purchase immediately your Top Stocks application if you had an Android version. I have both Android phones and tablets. I think your subscription rate would double at least just supporting Android. Please make this happen. Can we at least get an update? Thanks, David
I asked a MS rep this question several months ago and was told that the Android system was not as controlled as the Apple system so there is more problems to produce Android App
But given the level of Android users that can't be a continuing excuse for no Android app.
If it is matter of Money - then they should use their own tools - make some money - then make the Android app.
So can we have an update please?
I think the best solution would be to make a html5 version of the application.That way it would be completely platform independent, and they could concentrate their resources on a single version for all mobile operating systems.
In the meantime a possible solution is to use a remote desktop application for android.
Several affordable sub 10 inch tablets with windows 8 will also be released this year.Lenovo ThinkPad 8 for example looks like a good alternative for using marketsmith on the go.
Does Win 8 run Marketsmith ok?
There are a lot of good people at MarketSmith, but the tech department seems to be pretty bad. Just try using the line tool to draw something and make some notes with text. It's so weak. Pattern rec is cool but you can't search by patterns etc, or volume, or other things some free websites offer, and you have to pay extra each month for a half ass add on. Platforms like Thinkorswim has all that and more, plus real time quotes, no extra charge. Don't get me wrong, I'm a subscriber but you really feel the tech dept does the minimum they can get away with. Maybe Scott and his dad just want the money more. I mean, do you know of a charting package that doesn't have zoom in the charts? Sometimes the bars are so small it's a joke. Check out eSignal charts. If MarketSmith ever tried to put a few $ into it, they could kill it. But SON and Won may trade well but they are cheap imo. It says a lot when you allow yourself to sell a subpar product. So many of the most basic features are missing. Do you really think SON is going to part with the money to make an android app if he won't hire good programmers for his core product? No way.
