...this release is a marked improvement from earlier versions.

Bare Reef has updated its iPad stock portfolio management app. The update centers around a new interface consisting of a single-level multi-function tab bar. Compared to previous releases, the single-level tab bar provides faster access to app functionality while simplifying app layout and ease of use. Bare Reef President, Greg Hoover says, "Simplifying from two levels of tab navigation to one has has allowed us to pick up additional screen space for the views that users care about and does a better job of highlighting the app's features." The new tab bar is also used to return to higher levels of navigation when drilling down into stock data which allowed for removal of the typical "Back" button found in many apps.

New in this update is a feature dubbed Quick Look that provides immediate access to stock quotes, news and charts. While previous versions required that a stock first be added to a portfolio or watchlist, Quick Look allows the user to view this information by ticker symbol, adding the stock to a portfolio or watchlist later if desired. The update also includes heat maps – a popular visualization tool for comparing stock performance. Pro subscribers have the ability to view their portfolios, watchlists, categories, favorites and market indices in heat map form.

The update also comprises a number of bug fixes that address memory use and stability issues that have been a problem in prior releases, especially on older devices. "We are continuously monitoring app stability and performance, and feel that this release is a marked improvement from earlier versions," says President, Greg Hoover.
