Hey Guys,

I made a small app that makes it easy to check the current prices in $ and € from your desktop. It adds a tray icon next to your clock that you can click to see the current prices and compare them with the prices 24h, 7d and 30d ago.

I made this app for myself because I found myself checking the current value of my bitcoin 30 times a day ;-) I decided to make it public.

Check it out: http://bitcoin-prices.com/

Tell me what you think and maybe I will add your favorite feature in return ;-)

Mark

Hmm nice little app..thanks

The setup seemed to hang here



but the app was still visible and accessible through the try icon.

Would be nice to be able to remove Euro currency though as its not required.

Cheers

There seem to be some issues with this app.

First is that it's Windows-only. I'd love something like this, but I'm not using Windows and I have no plans to start.

Second is that I could not find any source code. How can we be sure that this program will not steal a user's wallet.dat?

I've downloaded the installer-free version, it's a .NET 2.0 applications (using forms, so it might work on mono) and no sign of any code that would steal a wallet in the version I checked Smiley

Hm, strange. In this phase my setup just starts the tray app and once it is running continues. Maybe you can send me a screenshot of all processes that are running (preferably in process explorer's tree mode).

Did the setup show a message box (it should)?

"Windows-only": Yeah, sorry about that. I do not know how to make a linux version (I would have done that).

"source code": Never thought about this. I will probably release it today (it is not interesting anyway, no trade secrets to be found in a winforms app ;-) ). Thanks for the suggestion!
