Zignals: Blogger review

We have had our first Blogger review from Alex Kirtland entitled "Charting from Zignals...Argh!". The review has a good demonstration video of an unusual 'bug', which has since been solved. As the title suggests it's not a glowing review but we have we have addressed (and will continue to address) the issues Alex raised:

  • The non-closing tabs were a challenge, but a simple correction solved this problem
  • The jumpy menu bars can be solved by pinning the menu bars in place


  • Wikinvest has a user friendly interface but lacks features. Stockcharts has the features, but to get the most out of it you have to pay for it (pay more now). StockCharts.com has a chart annotation tool which is far from perfect (just see how often the Java applet gives you a memory error without notice; this from a 5-year user of their service). With Zignals we offer the features for free and we are working hard to get the user interface as smooth as possible. Zignals stock charts now update with the latest price on record.
  • The password recovery feature can be found under the Register link in the top right hand corner. However, at the time of Alex's review the email delivery system was down so password recovery emails were not mailed (same too with any stock alerts).

    So we have one blogger review in, if there is anyone else preperared to give us a spin I would be happy to respond to your experience in a post with a link back to your blog. We want the good and the bad (the bad more so we can fix it!).

    Come on, give us a try - it's free!
