  1. Fantastic! absolutley fantastic. I’m NOT an expert and I could easely run this source on app inventor. And now I can have the stock data in my android phone by “myself”. Thank you guys. I’ve done a fantastic job.

  2. Hi Flavio. I’m glad you liked the stock data sample. Just to let you know there’s a way to do this now without using an API as the App Inventor team now has a web component. Check out this sample: http://appinventorblog.com/2011/06/02/app-inventor-has-a-new-component-the-web/
