★★★ How do I add a widget to my homescreen? ★★★

From there, select any of the available widgets and long press and drag to where you want it on your home screen. You can then resize it eventually (long click, drop and you should see some blue dots (see the screenshot #5) around the widget. drag them up or down, right or left to resize to your taste.

This is finally the stock ticker widget you've been looking for. After becoming frustrated by the lack of decent stock widgets on the Android, I decided to make one. The result is a CNBC style, two layer, multi speed scrolling stock ticker that not only looks cool, but provides you with up to date quotes for your entire portfolio in a small amount of space. Recommended use is to put individual stocks on the upper watchlist while major global indices and/or currencies on the lower watchlist.
This is a widget and requires one full line of space. To add a widget, long click on empty space within your home screen then select 'Widget' --> 'Stock Ticker Tape Widget'. The widget features a 4 X 1 widget which will work for most phones as well as 6 X 1 and 8 X 1 widgets for larger devices and tablets.
In this free version, the upper watchlist contains high volume individual stocks quotes while the lower watchlist contains the following major global indices:
- S&P 500
- Russell 2000
- London Stock Exchange FTSE 100
- French CAC 40
- German DAX 30
- Japanese Nikkei 225
- Chinese Shanghai Composite Index
- Hong Kong Hang Seng Index
- Korean Kospi Index
- S&P Australian ASX 200
If you like this version, please consider the pro version which allows you to customize the watchlists using your own symbols.
