About Market Meter v1.0

Market Meter is the first release from Inductive Labs, developed for the 2010 StreetApps Challenge sponsored by Thomson Reuters. Built from scratch over the course of six weeks of nights and weekends (and with limited platform experience), this mobile app development effort tested our mettle and pushed us into unknown waters. But we love a challenge. Thank you for your interest in Market Meter. We welcome your questions and comments.

Application Overview

Market Meter is a financial markets and news mobile application developed for the investment and trading professional. Reflecting the strengths and experience of the Inductive Labs team, the app focuses on utility and user-centric functionality by providing access to Reuter's differentiated and premium data in a "context-sensible" way.  By delivering this rich data using innovative and flexible interface methods, a high premium is also placed on user control, screen utilization, multi-tasking and configurability.
