Sleek, simple design provides easy access to stock and financial data.



    SEATTLE, WA, November 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cypress (www.cypressconsulting.net), a Seattle-based interactive agency, is the developer behind Microsoft's new MSN Money Stocks application for Windows Phone 7. Cypress' creation of this new, powerful stock tracking mobile application includes real-time monitoring of financial indexes, markets, currencies, stocks, and fund performance, along with top listing of news related to the financial marketplace.

"Cypress' knowledge of and prior experience working with Microsoft platforms made the decision easy when selecting the right developer for the debut of MSN Money on Windows Phone 7," said John Flinn, Director and MSN Executive Producer. "The MSN Money Stocks app is the first MSN mobile application created for Windows Phone 7, and we're excited to bring Windows Phone customers trusted and customizable financial content from MSN Money to their mobile device."

MSN Money Stocks is a great example of the rich, dynamic applications people will find on Windows Phone Marketplace to get the most out of their phone, as customers can personalize the app by creating custom news feeds on specific companies and stock watch lists, which presents insight on specified stocks being traded or markets being watched. Additionally, the application offers top news headlines related to the financial market and general business landscape. Customers can track world market performance, analyze currency rates and historical trending in a single location. The application is free to consumers.

"In developing the MSN Money Stocks mobile application we tried to take advantage of Windows Phone 7's unique features and design, rather than overwhelming the app with bells and whistles," said Roy Matich, Executive Creative Director at Cypress. "It provides consumers with a straightforward tool to get the information they need whenever and wherever they want. We got inside the mind of the busy businessperson who relies on this information for their livelihood and paired it with Microsoft technology to get the smart, sleek application now available on Windows Phone Marketplace."

Cypress also recently announced its development of the MySpace iLike Local Concerts mobile application for Windows Phone 7. The company also creates mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms.
