How to Get Stock Alerts on iPhone/iPad

Last Updated: Aug 24, 2015 02:36PM CDT
Starting with v3, you can set up Email Alerts.

For Pro users, it is possible to get stock alerts sent directly to your iOS device thanks to Growl & Prowl.

​The Growl App is a 3rd party Mac app that costs $3.99
The ProwlApp is a 3rd party iOS app that costs $2.99

Setting it Up

Purchase and Install Growl from the Mac App Store.

Open Stock + Pro preferences and untick "Use Notification Center" in the notifications preference pane.  This will tell the app to use Growl instead of Mac OS X Notification Center.

With your Prowl username and password, go back to the Growl app to activate the Prowl plugin.
In the Displays tab, select Prowl and click Generate to make an API key.

Provide your Prowl username and password to generate the API key.

Navigate to the Applications tab and select Stock + Pro from the list.  If Stock + Pro isn't in the list, trigger a stock alert from the app (e.g. if price increases 0.01 display notification).  The app will appear in the list after a notification has been displayed.

Select the "Price Change" notification and use the Action drop down menu to enable Prowl.

Finally, purchase and install the ProwlApp for iOS.

You can test that the Growl to Prowl connection is working properly by clicking the "preview" button in Growl.

Setup and use alerts as usual.  Now you will get notified on your iOS device!!!
