Subscribe to RSS feed How to Install StocksCafe App

By evankoh posted on 6 Mar 2018  -  31,327 views


Regularly, users would independently request for an iOS app to be built for StocksCafe. Due to limited resources, it is unlikely I can satisfy this request in the near future. However, a recent feature request made by a Friend of StocksCafe actually made me realize that I could create a pseudo app for StocksCafe.

It is to simply create a shortcut (which looks like an app) on your phone that will start your phone's browser and bring you to your chosen StocksCafe page.

The steps to install this "app" are:

For iOS
1) Open Safari. Yes, it must be Safari and not other browsers.
2) Go to your favorite page in stocks.cafe. This will be the startup page.
3) Select on the share icon (likely the middle icon at the bottom).
4) On the row where "Add to Reading List" and "Add Bookmark" is, look for "Add to Home Screen" and select it. You might have to scroll right to find it.
5) Edit the name to "StocksCafe" or "SC" or whatever you would like to call this app.
6) Select Add (on the top right).
7) You will see the new shiny icon on your home screen just like any other mobile app.

For Android
1) Open Chrome. Yes, it must be Chrome and not other browsers.
2) Go to your favorite page in stocks.cafe. This will be the startup page.
3) Select the three dots on the top right.
4) Select "Add to Home screen".
5) Edit the name to "StocksCafe" or "SC" or whatever you would like to call this app.
6) Select "Add".
7) You will see the new shiny icon on your home screen like any other mobile app.

I hope you will enjoy this new "app" :)

Happy investing!

p.s.: I know that there is an Android app for StocksCafe in Play Store but I actually recommend this because you can choose your startup page and also name it whatever you like!

evankoh - Great! I recently updated the icon to StocksCafe logo. Does it update automatically for you? Do you see a single letter S as icon or StocksCafe logo as icon?

New Landing Page
One main feedback from new users of StocksCafe is that there are too many features and it can be too overwhelming to start using StocksCafe. Therefore, I have designed a simple landing page which hopefully will help new users warm up to StocksCafe. You can find the new welcome page here. 1) As you can see, there is still free space for more icons. Please suggest what other information you think would ...

DrWealth + StocksCafe
On my recent trip back to Singapore, I met up with Alvin and Jon (both of them from DrWealth) for breakfast. We had a good chat and agreed that there could be good synergy between StocksCafe and DrWealth and decided to try working together more closely going forward. For those who do not know, DrWealth is a financial education provider. I attended one of their online courses two years back and personally, ...
