If you’re a BlackBerry user that needs constant updates on your stock portfolio, BerryBlowApps has developed an app for you: Stocks+.

Stocks+ is different than other finance-based apps for BlackBerry, as it comes with the ability to display your stocks on your home screen. As the app updates in the background, the stock information on your wallpaper changes, so you always have up-to-date information right in front of you.

You can specify pop-up, sound, LED, and vibration alerts for a change in stock value, the difference between average of the day and current value, and the difference between 52 week average and current value (as a percentage). You can also backup and restore your stocks and alerts settings.

The app was recently updated to version 1.3, which brought company-related news and updates. It also came with the ability to sort the order of your stocks, set your background photo within the app, and backup to an SDCard.

You can download Stocks+ for $4.99 or try it out the free demo version first.
