I developed stockdiv: http://www.aiclipboard.com/stockdiv and its objective is to help managing your portfolio and it's a freeware.
The only download site with a dedicated section was fileforum.com. It seems that this area is less promoted in general.
I know that my audience is limited to begin with but are there any sites that are more relevant for me to publish such application?
ps: I can't change my email address and I don't have access to the one written here so private emails won't reach me.

How about stock alerts for price threshold or % change? My Yahoo Finance Alerts are broken (I cannot edit/save my alerts) and Yahoo does not seem to care much about that product. Google Finance does not seem to have alerts either. I tried searching for a similar service online but did not find anything decent.
If you app is not just free, but also ad-free, etc., solicit feedback on relevant discussion forums/boards/community Q&A sites, and so on I've read recently that 49% of US households had brokerage accounts in 2013, so I'd expect huge and lively communities to exist.
Be humble and ask for feedback on the app, not for advice on how to promote it.

@Craig: Because this is a Windows application and not something that runs in the cloud it means it will need to run "forever" so it can request data over and over again in order to know when to trigger the alarm, this will never be online or fast as you probably expect it to be. So technically it can be done but I wonder if it is usable as it is now. What do you say?
@Dmitry: It is free and ad free. Thanks for the tip but may I ask what do you mean by "on relevant discussion forums/boards/community Q&A sites"? that is exactly my question :)

@Craig: Have a look at StockMarketEye:
It has both price and % alerts.
@Amos: I know a few resources of this type, but they are all in Russian.

@Dmitry: Are there any English speakers or they all speak only Russian? If there are and you can give 2-3 examples, I'll appreciate it. Thanks!

I'd expect professional traders to know some English, so you can give these two a shot:
http://www.russian-trader.com/forums/forums/10-Software (trading software subforum)
http://ruforum.mt5.com/forums/29-fyuchersnaya-torgovlya-cfd-fondoviy-rinok (stock market subforum, others are mostly about Forex)
Also, some of the bigger Russian brokerages have active forums on their Web sites, which may be the case in the US as well.
