Had come across mentions of the Chillr app 2-3 weeks ago, but only recently got around to actually downloading and using it. An addition to the world of payment related apps, Chillr lets you send money to anyone in your phonebook who has a bank account.
I love trying out new apps and in the past 2-3 years, I’ve probably tried over 1,000 apps across Blackberry, Android and iOS. At any given time, my phone / tablet easily has close to 250-300 apps on it, and the Walnut app is the latest addition to that list. Sadly, I haven’t gotten around to writing about those apps, so rectifying that now.
I’ve been investing in the stock market for a long long time now, and in the early days, kept a written record and then used Excel or Open Office Calc to track my stock portfolio and other investments. Over a period of time, as the portfolio grew, it became cumbersome to keep inputting the data manually whenever there were any changes, and that’s where MProfit Portfolio Management Software came in handy.
Till recently I’ve been using Microsoft Money to do this, along with the ET Portfolio Tracker for stocks and Value Research for mutual funds. There are portfolio tools with demat and online trading providers too. I use Sharekhan, HDFC Securities and ICICIDirect, and am not too enthused about their portfolio trackers. Besides, they will only track my investments done through them.
