    I bought StockTouch some time ago, and then it was shut down. I keep looking for it in Apple’s app store, but it doesn’t show up. I’m reading here that almost a year ago it was about to relaunch.

    I still have the original app on my iPad, but the data isn’t up to date and it says that the StockTouch servers are down.

    What’s Up? Is it renamed, dead, delayed, or what?

    Thanks.

      relaunched in Q4 2016 but it abruptly shut down again at the end of Q1 2017. You missed the six months when it was relaunched.

      The relaunch had pretty much the same UI but enabled the app to be linked to several of the largest brokerage firms. I suppose the incentive for the relaunch was that they would get a commission for each trade. I speculate that there wasn’t enough income to cover the costs so they shut down again.

      It’s a pity because this is such a great app. They should just charge $10 per month instead. And they really need marketing to let people know the app is back. Their ideas are good (including the linkage to brokerages) but so few people knew about the app’s relaunch.

      Moreover I wish they would bother to communicate their intentions no matter how briefly on their blog. Something simple like “We are sorry but the StockTouch service will be discontinued. We might make another come back at later date with a viable business model, so watch this space” would have been better than not saying anything at all.

    I have the exact same question. It’s pretty obvious that the supposed relaunch never occurred, and presumably it never will.
