Enhancement for AOL
WaveOp no longer develops
AOSell, Stock Investment Research Enhancement for America Online.
We thank all of our users who supported the concept of shareware
through all these years.
AOSell was released back
in the summer of 1996 for America Online version 2.0 running on
Windows 3.1 and 95. At that time, America Online's stock research
system was seriously lacking. Despite AOL's wealth of available
resources, stock research such as financial statements and earnings
estimates required that you enter the company name, while stock
quotes required the ticker symbol, the portfolio and charts where
not connected to each other, programs such as Quicken and Metastock
required special file formats to have data imported into its portfolio.
In response, we created
an add-on that allowed users to type in the ticker symbol or company
name and AOSell would research all the necessary information and
store it in an organizer. Historical quotes and portfolios could
easily be imported into financial programs. Shortcuts that would
take users to specific message boards for each stock.
As the years progressed,
AOL's Personal Finance improved its offering substantially and the
need for AOSell was eventually phased out. We then focused our attention
towards fighting spam with Garbage
Man, junk email filter for AOL.
