CNET Editors' review
Stock Ticker Application Bar does exactly what it sets out to do: it adds a running stock ticker to the top of your screen. It wasn't the most attractively designed program we've seen, but the no-frills approach makes it easy to operate and use.
As soon as you click on the program's desktop icon, a ticker-style bar is added to the top of your window. The attractive ticker is colorful without being garish, and it quickly displayed the most current stock information. It offers backward and forward navigational buttons so that you can easily find specific stock information. Using the Controls feature, we were able to add and remove stock symbols, adjust the scroll speed, and select a specific font and size. The program even allows you to add alarms to notify you when a stock reaches a specific floor and ceiling, a nice touch for those actively buying and selling specific stocks.
We had to dig around in the program's folder to locate the Help file; but we don't think you'll need to refer to it since the program is pretty straightforward in its purpose. The brief, 10-day trial period could be a bit longer, but still, we highly recommend this ticker for any user interested in the most current at-a-glance stock information.
From Ashkon Technology:
Stock Ticker Application Bar displays stock quotes right on your desktop. This thin bar docks to the top or bottom or your screen and shows stock quotes and price changes as a scrolling line, just like an original old-fashioned stock ticker tape. It automatically or manually refreshes the stock quotes, has user defined scrolling speed, fonts and includes stock symbol lookup features and top or bottom prices stock price alert.
