The fact that the initial code for Duran Duran Fan for Android was clean and modular allowed Lady Gaga Fan for Android to be rapidly developed and deployed. In fact, it is the creation of the assets for submission to Android Market which takes longer in the whole process.

It was also interesting to see that some people were using the apps on Samsung Galaxy Tabs so the apps were then updated to support the Android Tablet form-factor.

Although these apps are currently only available on Android Market, they are actually cross-platform and can run on iOS devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads 1 and 2, in addition to several other platforms.

StockTalk1We love StockTwits by Howard Lindzon, Soren Macbeth and the team. It’s a real-time Financial network where traders, investors and economists freely exchange information and their commentaries. Getting the streams in real-time provides many opportunities for trading and investing and StockTwits has become an essential tool in any trader’s arsenal. It is also useful to get a glance of the news prior to the next trading day.

iOS users already had the very beautiful Nasdaq QFolio and the official StockTwits app, but until now, there has been no proper app to access the essential real-time information for Android. There is a StockTwits-sanctioned app for Android called StockDroid, the latter is a portfolio manager and not a way of getting at the real-time streams.

This is why we built a simple app, called StockTalk for Android that very purpose.StockTalk icon

StockTalk is free and very easy to use. It provides access to the following StockTwits streams by default:
