A few weeks ago, I released an
iOS app for SGXcafe. Naturally, Android users started to request an app as well. However, just like it was for iOS, I do not have any experience with Android development either.
Hence, I jokingly requested a friend from work to build the SGXcafe Android app for me and to my utmost surprise, he showed me a first version the next day. Of course, SGXcafe mobile apps are very simple to build if you have experience with iOS or Android, but still, it was time he could have better spent elsewhere. So thank you very much, Artur!
Which gave me an idea; why not let others develop the iOS and Android apps of SGXcafe since it is difficult for just one person to do everything on top of my full-time job. Therefore, I am now officially inviting all iOS and Android developers to join me in building the future of SGXcafe. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide any form of monetary compensation since SGXcafe is still nowhere near profitable due to the
heavy licensing costs. However, this could be a platform where you showcase your skills and add to your portfolio by building something that provides value to the 20,000 investors that access SGXcafe monthly (according to Google analytics at this point of writing and the trend has been rapidly increasing). If you are interested, please
message me privately.
Download the Andriod app here!
Please enjoy the Android app, and as usual, I welcome any feedback.

Portfolio Changes: Current Cost vs Closed Cost
Wrong Total Cost Recently, a user highlighted that Total Cost in StocksCafe was computed wrongly and he (I assumed it's a he based on the username) is correct. I previously computed Total Cost as "Sum of [buy price x number of shares] for each stock currently in portfolio". However, this is inaccurate as he has pointed out, and I agree. Therefore I have changed the definitions of Total Cost and also ...
