• I wish to enter dates with corresponding values, and have these values charted in a line or block graph. If the chart and values could be exported, that would be nice.


Since the original title containing the words graph and commodities did not seem to produce any results, I have now changed the question to a more general question. Original question was: I am looking for a way to edit and graph my own commodities off line ?

USE ( to clarify the question )

  • I could use this to create a graph from manually entered stock exchange values, but also to follow up my weight, or hart beat values, or whatever chart whose values change daily.

  • I know that you can use a spreadsheet to do this, but I am looking for a more specialised program.

  • I am running Froyo 2.2.1 on a Samsung Galaxy S and Archos 101 pad ( if this should make a difference ).


Left the original question here, so that any read could understand the initial comments.

I am looking for a stocks program where I can add and edit my own daily/weekly stock figures. I want some graph too. I don't want nor seek a program which offers real time or on line updated stock quotes. I have looked in the marked, but there are tens or hundreds of stocks programs, and I really don't want to try them all ( especially because most if not all of them emphasise how easy it is to have real time updated values ).

    App recommendation is off topic, try to contort :-) the wording so it does not look like a request for app recommendation. – Lie Ryan Apr 8 '11 at 13:54

    @Lie Ryan: I thought I would get this comment - but where can we place such request if not this forum ? When you ask a question like 'how can I put a short cut on my home screen', you get, as answers all sorts of home replacement software, but if you ask some direct question regarding software on your phone, it's off topic. I did look for another stackexchange forum, but could not find one where I could ask an Android application question. – Edelcom Apr 8 '11 at 16:14

    Don't ask for an application. Ask for a solution to a problem. In this case, how to edit and graph your own commodities without real-time quotes. Otherwise, you're asking us to filter those "tens or hundreds" of apps for you. – ale Apr 8 '11 at 17:13

    @Edelcom I think you make decent point (regardless of how long you've been a programmer). However we don't want this site to turn into a place where people pop in to ask for an app so they don't have to search for themselves. Stating a problem that needs to be solved shows more thought and possibly even an attempt at least to solve the issue. The other reason may be that some Android devices may already have the solution built-in (no app needed). However in general your observation is correct - as soon as you don't ask for an app someone will recommend one to solve your problem :) – Daniel Apr 9 '11 at 5:53

    @Edelcom: it's sightly different. Questions that asks for "what application" limits itself to searching for a single applications that fulfills the need. A "how to do" questions is more broad, it is valid answer to suggest using a web applications from Browser, or multiple applications that works together (integration between multiple unrelated applications is the power of Android's Intent system), or perhaps the feature may already be built-in. Another way to see it, questions should be asking solutions to a problem (the solution may be an app, but not necessarily so). – Lie Ryan Apr 9 '11 at 6:09

After a lot of searching I found this nice little program which does exactly what I was asking for: Easy Graph from BH Soft.

Nothing fancy but what is does it seems to do well.

The developer should add more chart types, for sure, but at the moment it allows me to enter, save and chart different sets date + value pairs in a line chart.
