I bought Soulver 3 to support development, but I still use version 2 daily for the Stocks functionality (even though it's buggy).
In version 2 (with a bit of persistence) I can get the stock numbers that refuse to update - to eventually update by removing and adding the entries. It's a pain in the butt, but it's worth the hassle.
I would absolutely love to see the feature and functionality brought back - even if I have to single-handedly pay your stock metadata aggregator to make it worthwhile.
I just miss being able to write things like AAPL x 50 etc.
