Free stocks, markets and currency monitor from Microsoft offering the basics in a slick interface lacking any real powerful features.
MSN Money Review
by on March 14, 2010
This small widget offers a basic way to track a small number of different stocks, markets and currencies.
While this looks slick enough and you’re provided with plenty of extra details, charts and links to a MSN information site, what you see is almost all you get. Sadly, there’s also no option to group or categorise your chosen items, they just appear in a long list.
You have the option to add and remove items you want to track from the list; and even though most items you’ll want are provided, there’s a snag. The user interface is hardly intuitive and finding the items is pretty tricky.
For example, you’ll have to work out which country code to use and the format yourself, the same goes for adding in markets and currencies. The help is woefully limited on this respect and while the search does its best there’s only so far it can go.
