saumitra.agarwal got their new app design by running a design contest:
Design Android app for social network for stock traders and investors
Check out saumitra.agarwal's App design contest…
Accounting & Financial
The app will allow our users to share, discover and discuss stock ideas with like minded traders and investors on their mobile. Talkoot.in is a social network for traders and investors. It will help its community increase profits by sharing ideas and investing/trading socially. Newbies will be able to seek out advise and experts will be able to provide guidance for a better social reputation. Good reputation will lead to more followers and we expect some of the experts to charge a fee at a later stage for offering individual advice. I have provided existing app link for reference (though I am not very happy with experience)
1. First run experience and profile - help users on-board the app and decide what is important to them such as which stocks, time frame, investment method 2. Landing screen - after signup, discover the top users, topic and stocks based on their profile from step 1 and follow them to create financial feed 3. Financial feed - discover advice, questions and discussions based on what user is following in step 2. Users will be able to comment, like and share these. 4. Ask for advice - Ask other users in network for advice on a stock or topic. For example, I am holding 100 shares of Google at $605 each, what should I do? This will appear in the financial feed of users who follow this user or those who follow Google 5. Provide recommendation - Provide an answer to an ask or directly provide a recommendation. For example, Sell Google at $610 with a target of $500. This will appear in financial feed of users who follow this user, those who follow Google, and those who follow 'trading tips' 6. Direct and group message with like minded investors. This will help user discuss details in real-time with others. This screen is beyond project scope and I will pursue this with the contest winner It is expected that from landing screen user is able to decide which stocks and users to follow. Information that needs to be shown is: • People ○ Name ○ Investor type (from profile question) ○ Followers ○ Karma ○ Average return • Stock ○ Ticker ○ Name ○ Price & % Change ○ Target Price & % difference from target price (aggregate of all ideas) ○ Average rating It is expected that from financial feed screen, a user is able to: 1. Follow/unfollow the stock (the idea may be pushed to his feed because he follows the user) 2. Follow/unfollow the user (the idea may be pushed to his feed because he follows the stock) 3. Upvote/downvote and share the idea 4. Comment on the idea or start individual chat with the idea owner 5. At a glance, capture all important aspect of idea (e.g. if idea is 'Buy $MSFT at $44 for target $55 within next 1 month #swingtrade) a. Bullish/bearish/Neutral outlook in the idea ('Buy' denotes bullish) b. Underlying stock ('MSFT') - this will need to be typed/searched from stock universe c. Current price ('$44') - this will be automatically recorded d. Target price ('$55') - once $55 is hit, the idea is complete and user will be rewarded e. Time horizon ('1 month') - after this time the idea expires and is no longer relevant f. Stop loss price (not provided here) - once this price is hit, the idea is invalid and user will be penalized g. Additional info ('#swingtrade') - additional tags which will increase scope of this idea. In this case all followers of #swingtrade will receive this idea on their financial feed h. Current return (not shown here) - this will be automatically added based on stock's current market price 6. Providing all information needed in 5 is cumbersome so expect many users to skip details. We need to design accordingly 7. At a glance, differentiate more accurate users from others. For example, if Saumitra has provided 100 ideas with average return of 20%, then Saumitra should have a badge/visual cue to differentiate from the rest
What to avoid
Many Indian users are unfamiliar with sophisticated apps and fail to figure out complex experiences, therefore I am not looking for StockTwits or Facebook. The experience needs to be very simple, focused and intuitive. ClosingBell is the best starting point out there. I love its simplicity!

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
saumitra.agarwal collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Great experience and wonderful working relationship. Rosario & Hassan were so helpful and informative. I didn't always understand the design process, but they made sure they always responded to my inquiries, and provided feedback. They made the whole process fun and exciting. I am very pleased with the designs and implementation of the ideas we discussed. I look forward to working with them in the future. Thanks again for all the support and hard work that went into this project!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
