Info

This site is made as a brief introduction and a little guide into Android apps I made for fun for tracing alt coin prices. First I made it for myself, but I decided to try to share it via google play store because I was curious about opinions of other people about it. I got a few e-mails with questions about it, like about what the app do, what does it mean if I want to make arbitrage exchange, etc.

So, if you are already owner of any app and feel confused by the app, I am sorry for that, it was not my intent, but you can find a little help in the Guide section. I hope you can enjoy these apps and they will not drive you crazy, because of bugs, which may occur there, if you will find any please let me know, thank you.

Apps

Bellow you can find a list of released apps which can track prices and other alt coin stats. If you are interested, just click on the image and you will be redirected to google play store.

Guide

Simple guide for apps with a short description of individual screens. If you are interested only in specific part, you can use links under the content label to get there.

Overview | Exchanges | Exchange Detail | Arbitrage | Settings | Widgets

Overview

Simple overview about the alt coin, obtained from coinmarkecap.com, which means that it provides info about current alt coin such as:

  • price of the alt coin,
  • rank of the alt coin market cap
  • market cap shows current value of all available supplies on the market
  • volume indicates volume of alt coins which were traded on exchanges
  • change(h) shows price change during one hour
  • change(d) shows price change during one day
  • change(w) shows price change during one week
  • supply shows total available amount of alt coins

Exchanges

Here you can find list of exchanges which support trading with the alt coin. As a brief summary you can find info about best bid and best ask from listed exchanges and number of listed exchanges on the top of the screen. There is also a switch button which allows you to show only exchanges which are added into your list. Adding an exchange into "track list" is described in Exchange Detail section.

Every listed exchange provides basic info about current state of the market. Which means you can find here info such as:

  • price which is last price of realized trade,
  • ask is the best price to buy your alt coin
  • bid is the best price to sell your alt coin
  • volume is an amount of traded alt coins in last 24 hours

To get on the exchange detail screen, just tap on the exchange you want to show, and then you will see more info about it with few more options. Good indicator of reliability of the exchange is its volume, where you may see how many alt coins where exchanged there during last 24 hours.

Exchange Detail

Exchange detail screen provides you the same info about the exchange like it was shown in exchange list in Exchange section. There are added only few options but let's describe it all:

  • exchange select you can choose any of listed exchange to see its detail,
  • track/untrack button to add/remove exchange into/from your list
  • visit button will redirect you to the exchange homepage
  • price is the last price of realized trade
  • ask is the best price to buy your alt coin on the exchange
  • bid is the best price to sell your alt coin on the exchange
  • volume is an amount of traded alt coins in last 24 hours on the exchange
  • updated shows when the exchange info was updated

To get back on the list of exchanges just tap on the left arrow on the top of the screen.

Arbitrage

What I found, this is the most favorite part of ticker apps, but it can make a lot of confusion, too. So let's introduce this screen in more details.

First of all, you can find here a Refresh button. This button loading current offers of the order book for each exchange, but these values are cached for 1 minute due to request limits on the exchanges. To see latest value of offers (or at least latest best ofers in last minute), just click on the Refresh button. Please, be careful that the best offer might not be equal of the amount you would like to trade, because the overview shows only the top offers from the exchange's order book (which may be amount of 1 alt coin, while you want to buy for example 10 alt coins, so it would be covered by deeper offers from the orderbook). Consider also that exchnages with high liquidity change their orders very fast, like Poloniex and other exchanges with high volumes. Due to this, take that more as "overview for opportunity to make an arbitrage trade" then 100% profit.

My List switch button allows you to see opportunity fro abribtrage trading for all exchanges or only for tracked exchanges, which means exchanges which were added into your list, as it was described in Exchange Detail section.

Finally there are list of records with all combinations of asks and bids of listed exchanges. As was described above, you can choose if you would like to see every exchnage or only those which are listed in your tracking list. Every record contains ask and bid stats which are:

  • ask / bid shows type of the order in order book,
  • exchange says what exchange owns the offer
  • price is value of the best offer, recounted to value of 1 alt coin
  • market describes the market, which means the currency used for trading with alt coin (i.e. USD, alt coin can be bought only for USD), some exchanges has more markets, which means you might be able to do arbitrage trading on the one exchange, where you do not have to pay withdrawal fees
  • profit is shown in % between the ask and bid stats

Settings

This is just setting screen where you can set language of the application (I admit that some may be a little funny, sorry about that :) ), currency to show prices of alt coins from different markets to compare them and of course there are notifications. A brief description of settings options is here:

  • language sets language for texts and labels of the application
  • currency sets currancy for overview and to compare prices and offers
  • track only mylist allows to make notification for all exchanges or only for tracked exchanges from My List
  • bottom value sets the lower threshold of alt coin value, if exchange will reach the value, app will notify you
  • top value sets the upper threshold of alt coin value, if exchange will reach the value, app will notify you
  • enable notifications need to be checked to activate bottom and top value notifications
  • change (h) sets absolute value of change during last hour in % (i.e. 5% will notfy you in case the change will be greater than 5% or lower than 5%)
  • enable notifications need to be checked to activate change (d) notification - different from enable notification for bottom and top value
  • arbitrage) sets threshold to be notified when there will occur an arbitrage option with desired profit in %
  • enable notifications need to be checked to activate arbitrage notification - different from enable notification for bottom and top value and change (d)
  • save button need to be clicked to save your settings

To get back on the list of exchanges just tap on the left arrow on the top of the screen.

Widgets

This last section is about widgets. You can create two kind of widgets. First one provieds overview info like the overview screen plus there is also info about best found arbitrage option. Second type of widget is focused only at exchange info, where you can choose which exchange should be tracked in configuration screen, after you choose this widget. Of course you add as many widgets as you wish to track multiple exchanges.

To keep widgets updated, let app run on background, it works together with alarm manager, so the app will not drain your battery and will wake up only when it get notification from the alarm manager. But if you choose option Exit in menu, it should shut down the app and unbind the alarm manager and stats will be not updated.
