BlackBerryInsight.com got the skinny on an update to the MarketFilters free mobile quotes and analysis application we told you about previously. The new Version 2 is coming almost a year after the last release so it has a boatload of updates. The old version is still available but I recommend sticking with the new one.
Our quotes and analysis application puts stock quotes, charts and technical analysis right on your BlackBerry device. Stay up to date on the stock market anywhere. Scan for stock trade ideas.
NEW! Version 2.0 has been released! This is a major improvement over the 1.x series. See the User Guide for usage instructions and troubleshooting.
