Sharenet's Blackberry® application developer, international SNOM XML-Applications award winner Shaun Crous, feels that aesthetics is a key ingredient in designing a popular, frequently used application and regards the Sharenet release as "slick, trendy and very professional." He also says that "while apps like these are available for foreign markets, I haven't been able to find one that does what we're doing for the South African market, until now!"
A distinguishing feature on all the applications is the individual watchlist/portfolio that users can build and monitor - a way to quickly view all shares of interest in one easily maintained table.
