Random Reuters is an Android application developed for the 2010 Thomson Reuters StreetApps Challenge.
Thomson Reuters decided to challenge the public to be creative and think differently about how our customers view and receive financial information when they are on-the-go.
Random Reuters is great for both financial professionals and novices alike. Thats what makes it stand out.
We would have loved to build in a search feature, that allows you to manually search for companies, but we didn't have time. However, if you vote for Random Reuters, we may have a chance to continue working on this project!
