Flower App is the application that i’m developing for track all my investments and sync the data with this blog.
I’m not sure if I will keep Flower App for my own personal use, if I will share the App with a small group or make the App public and free.
In the summer probably I will search for some “beta-testers”.
Here some old screenshots (everyday I am adding new features), if you want more info, just suscribe and I will send you updates about Flow and Flower App.
Flower App will never be Standalone
Flower App will never be a Standalone App, the brokers/platforms are changing everyday and i cannot send you auto-updates every minute. So I have 3 options:
Develop the app in FileMaker (Windows, macOS, iOS) : Limited users and 15€/month for a connection to the server. Now Im using FileMaker because Im familiar with it, and is very fast programing framework.
Web App (Runing on a web browser) developing it using Ruby on Rails (which I have to learn from scratch) and the app will be Free (I guess)
Or a Mix of both, using FileMaker as a “Premium” version of Flow and the Web App with less modules and free.
I am not a Magician
Flower App will not do magic, because the platforms will not allow me to get access to their data. You will have to import/add manually lots of data, depending of which platforms you use.
Why make public the App?
Because there is a lot of money on referrals.
Because people demands Apps like this.
Because I am gonna develop the app for myself anyway to tack my investments.
Why should you use Flower App?
You will know your networth
You will save time (and Fines?) doing Taxes reports
You will see real XIRR data by Brokers/Originators and make more good decisions
You will have access to the real data of other users investments
You will have news from your platforms and new investment oportunities inside the platform
and millions of things that I dont remember rigth know or even I think about them yet…
Sharing is Caring
One thing that I want to do is sharing (Anonymous) to the other users the data from your investments, how much % you invest, what platform, list of your loans, how many defaults, etc. I think sharing this data will reduce the try-and-error process and with the aggregated data we will be able to find better estrategies.
Sharing the “Due Diligence” job of every project will reduce the decision time to invest.
The App will be in English and probably I will never translate the App to another languages. Time to learn.
Multi currency of course…
And One More Thing...
