What is the On-Demand Stock Prices feature all about?
We believe that knowledge is power. As such, we have made Stock Price data available to you within your TxtReminders.
To get a recurring Stock Price update delivered to your SMS Inbox:
- Open the App
- Navigate to Create a New Reminder
- Open the Reminder Ideas
- Choose the On-Demand Stocks, Forex, Commodities category
- Select one of the Stock Price Examples, and customize it with your own Stock Symbol as shown in the examples below.
- Press the Test Now button at the top to ensure you've configured it correctly and see an example of what your SMS Message will look like
- Choose a Frequency (try Weekdays or Weekly), and Slide to Activate the TxtReminder.
Full details about how to add this information into your Reminders can be found below, including an interactive Stock Symbol Search feature. The Symbols can be tricky to get right since they can be structured differently depending on the Exchange the stock is traded on and how AlphaVantage stores the data.

The On-Demand Stock Price feature is currently powered by the excellent AlphaVantage API (https://www.alphavantage.co/). Please visit their Site for further information.
Search for your Stock Symbol and Stock Exchange
AlphaVantage provides an API to allow you to search for a Stock Symbol using a text match. For example you could type 'Microsoft' and it would match you up with a few results for Microsoft Corporation on the various Stock Exchanges they trade on.

Disclaimer for the On-Demand Stock Price Feature
As detailed in our Terms of Service, we don't guarantee the accuracy or reliability of any Third-Party Content that we deliver as part of the On-Demand Stock Price feature or any other On-Demand Content feature.
In fact, we don't guarantee the accuracy or reliability of any part of our service.
SMS Messaging is a "best-effort" platform and there are just too many factors outside of our control that can affect the deliverability and timeliness of the SMS Messages that we send you. Normally, you get your TxtReminders right on schedule, and it's generally a very reliable service. In many ways, it's more reliable than a lot of other similar services out there because of the way we have built the system that schedules and sends the reminders to you.
However, it unfortunately does have to be made abundantly clear that you should never take any Action or sustain any Inaction as a result of the information you receive or don't receive from TxtReminders.
In the case of Third-Party information that we obtain from another source that we do not control (like Weather, Stock Pricing, Forex Pricing, Precious Metals Pricing, Public Health Information, etc.), the risk of the information being out-dated, inaccurate, or not representing exactly what you think it represents, is greatly increased.
As such, please ensure you fully understand that this information "should be accurate", but is not guaranteed to be accurate. This is a risk you take on willingly if you choose to use these features.
We believe, however, that you'll find this Dynamic, On-Demand Information feature extremely beneficial despite these warnings. After all, we would not offer the service if we didn't personally use it ourselves and find it to have a lot of value, not to mention how cool it is to have your stock info sent to you during your morning coffee.
Besides - you can't believe anything you read, see, or hear anyways! So take the information for what it is, and always double check your facts from another reputable source before you act on it.
