Default Re: "Blue" stock market app: what's the symbol for Dow Jones Ind Avg?

D J I A (with or w/o spaces) doesn't work, but when I punched the Yahoo symbol ^DJI in Blue's search window, two more symbols that I have missed before have come up (exchanges are e-CBOT and CBOT):

DJI.CBE
DJI.CBOT

When e-CBOT opens on Sunday evening you can see if DJI.CBE is updating during overnight session (if it's just an index symbol, it shouldn't). Then on Monday you can compare the symbols to INDU:IND from Bloomberg app and see if the data is delayed 15 min or more.

Has anyone come across any user forums for Blue? It's a great app but it has its quirks. For instance, with the two symbols above, if you enter them in "search" as DJI.CBE and DJI.CBOT the message comes up: "no symbol found".

Another issue is the lack of user settings backup in Blue. With all the custom watch lists and layouts that you can create there should be a way to save all this in a backup file on SD card.
