iStocks Widget: International Quotes
The iStocks Widget displays quotes and historical charts for international stocks, indices and currencies.
The widget is provided as freeware and is based on Apple’s Stock widget, which is shipped with Mac OS X. This original widget is limited to US symbols only. iStocks overcomes this limitation and uses the international Yahoo services.
