stock markets

A few weeks ago we announced the arrival of Mail For Exchange on Asha Touch devices, and two complementary apps from the Nokia Store that allowed you to view and edit Word and Excel documents.

This week we are featuring another app that further underlines the excellent business credentials of the Asha Touch family.


QuickStocks (free) is an elegant web app that lets you browse stock prices and markets around the world.

Finding the stocks that you’re interested in is as simple as using the search bar at the top of the screen. Every company has their own stock or ticker symbol and this is what you have to search for.

For example, Nokia’s ticker symbol for its listing on the New York Stock Exchange is NOK. Enter this into the search box and Nokia’s stock price will be added to the listings on the screen.

At first you’ll only see a basic summary for each company, but you can tap on any stock to see much more information, such as the 52-week high and low, the fluctuations on a graph over a set period, and the Earnings Per Share (EPS).


It’s from the detailed view that you can also move the stock up or down on your screen, or remove it altogether. 

This might be useful if you want to monitor several stocks, but also want to keep a couple of the most important ones right at the top of your screen.

Over time, you could be selling and buying lots of different stocks so the ability to add, remove and reorder your stocks is really useful.

As well as individual stocks, you can also use QuickStocks to keep an eye on the markets in general. 

At the top of my screen I have the FTSE 100 and the Dow Jones Individual Average so that I can see at a glance how the global markets are performing in general.

For many people, keeping track of the stock markets is a necessity for work or business, but with QuickStocks it can be a pleasure too.
