  1. Download includes s&p &nasdaq averages.tried twice to get DJIA and all attempts erased my entire portfolio. Is there way to add or does the download include a bug?

    • Sounds like a bug to me, have you reported it to the PicoFinance author?

  2. PicoFinance wins Opera Top Award in the Business/Finance category — http://apps.opera.com/en_ca/awards_java

    • Congratulations, well deserved.

  3. pls hlp me am tired i use a Gowin I9300 phone and canot download a single thing

    • I can’t find any specs for that phone. Try the following. Start with a really simple app like http://boostapps.com/apps/gbjotpad/
      Go to http://boostapps.com/apps/gbjotpad/ with the phone’s browser and click the JAD link
      If that doesn’t work repeat using the JAR link
      If that doesn’t work and you are able to copy files from a PC to the phone’s memory card and the phone has a file manager, download the JAR file and copy it to the phone’s card. Using the phone’s file manager, click of the jar file and choose Open.

      If none of the above works the phone probably doesn’t support user installabe Java apps.
