WALL STREET ONLINE

This is an RPG game based on the stock market trading.
I will get real data from internet so could be used also as a didactic game.
If you have suggestions on features to add, please don't hesitate to tell me!!!
I wanna do the best Stock Market game on iOS/MAC!!!

List of things to do : (green done, red to do)

- Get REAL stock info in real time from my server
- Get REAL stock news in real time from my server
- Get REAL stock graph in real time
- Bonus 1000$ free every 12 hours
- Buy stocks
- Sell stocks
- Users market where to buy/sell stocks in private mode (a little ebay) with bids
- In app shop where to buy GGCoins (1 GGCoins = 1$ in real life, to simplify the game) but will cost less in the shop
- Stock info schedule, when you press on a stock you can see all info (last trade, ask, bid, etc)
- Desktop bar where to see user info : Money, time, assets, profit, etc.
- User info schedule where to see personal info bigger
- Use Game Center avatar in the user schedule
- General Chat to discuss or to talk to other users
- Private message system
- User can add to the database a stock symbol that is not on the list
- Search bar to find the stock symbol or news in the list easier
- News + Stock rotation ticker on the status bar
- Open internal web browser to read the news from the web

Screenshots (from 1024x768px to 800x600 scaled):

Other work tonight to code programmatically the stock schedule.
Now i only need the button to BUY in this schedule and to add some graphic to get it more nice and professional.

Worked hard on the compression of the data from server to client.
I have a list of 6000 stocks name, but loading it from the server is really slow.

So i'm trying to cut the list and do some speed improvements.
Maybe i will load the stock info directly from the device without passing from the server.

Stay tuned!!
