Data-phile's best moblie tool This is an absolute gem. Too bad I can't run R on my phone...
Great Start It has force-closed on me a couple times on a Nexus S (ICS). If I can determine the exact circumstances, I will let you know. Despite I give 5 stars, I would like to think this great app is work in progress. For instance I would find it most useful if it were possible to chart two series together (not just recession dummies/shading). THANK YOU for having this on Android. UPDATE: it works well on ICS tablets, although the data menus are clearly not designed with tablets in mind (they're a bit crumpled in the upper-left section of the screen). I have satisfactorily tried it on a Transformer Prime (stock ICS, rooted) and on a Xoom (ICS, EOS ROM).
When too much is not enough Not something I use a lot on my phone, but there are times when it is nice to have some data on the spot and this app will often (sometimes even quickly) do the trick. At any rate it is a very nice adjunct to FRED on the PC.
Good App Simple, smart, good designed and very useful DB of statistics.
Fred on mobile, wonk heaven! Additional functionality wishes, such as a download to spreadsheet function aside, this app is everything out should be. Great for a quick check of the VIX or to make a point during a policy argument...
