We reviewed the financial news and stock quote aggregator Streetread back in August when they launched their mobile version. The company describes the service as, "Streetread automatically aggregates the latest headlines from over 20 of the leading finance sites on the web, as well as all of the stocks you choose to follow".
Yesterday Streetread went up for auction on Sitepoint. The minimum bid is $8,500 with a buy-it-now price of $10,000. The founder says they are selling due to a new project the team is working on. They claim 2,000 registered users. And they note 7,000 unique visitors a month.
Streetread is a financial news and stock quote aggregator that launched earlier this summer. Josh Lowensohn at Webware has a good review of the initial launch. Initially the Streetread service was only available on the Web. Last week they announced the launch of Streetread Mobile which provides a similar set of information on a mobile device.
The Streetread mobile app displays the latest news about a stock plus a quote and chart. You can jump to the full stories along with a tie into Google for news.
I think the app would be even stronger if you could set one-click home screen buttons on the iPhone directly to a stock in Streetread. There’s a mobile demo if you want to play with the mobile version before using it on your mobile.
Streetread was founded by Mike Stefanello. Mike is working solo and bootstrapping the project. Here are a few examples of the mobile application:
