Neat idea! Can you tell us more about the editorial process? How do you discern what info is most important? @lukeleighfield @wholeearthweb @anderskravis @jacksonliving @michaelgunnulf
Some feedback: when I went to sign up on your homepage the sign up modal asks me to tick a little box before I can confirm, but there is no fine print / hyperlink explaining what that box is for (this is on Firefox).
@abadesi Thanks for the feedback! Our team curates the top stories in finance around the world each day with the goal of cutting through the noise and explaining what matters. We do our best to answer “why should you care” with the articles we write.
Thanks for pointing that issue out - should be fixed now! (Fun CSS bug 😉)
@abadesi @anderskravis We also published our curation policy here 🤓 https://www.finimize.com/wp/finimizes-curation-policy/
Hey there Product Hunt,
Max here – I’m the founder of Finimize 💸. We’re on a mission to empower people to become their own financial advisors. We are building a suite of products that sets information free and puts valuable tools and data in the hands of the consumers – power to the people!
You might remember us from previous Hunts, such as when we launched our newsletter (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/finimize) or when we launched our web news platform (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/finimize-news).
Since then we have come a long way and have created an absolutely fantastic community of 200,000 Finimizers (we actually made a short film about them – see below). We’ve been working very closely with some of them (shout out to our Alpha testers 👊) on a product that advances us in our mission.
So today, we’re super excited to launch our newest product: our iOS app 📱
Here’s a highlight of some the best features so far:
- Stay up to date: Easy to read updates and expert analysis on financial markets and cryptos
- Discover where to invest: Compare the performance of different investment providers
- Get real time updates: Carefully selected push notifications to keep you informed
- Read real user reviews: See what other users think of investment providers
- Understand the details: Enjoy our in-depth guides on investment markets and crypto
🙏@anderkravis, @michaelgunnulf, @jacksonliving, @mattdalton, myself and the rest of the team would love to get some feedback – and I’m happy to answer questions. This is obviously version 1, so the more feedback, the better :)
P.S. Here's the short film we made about our community – enjoy 🍿
@anderkravis @wholeearthweb Congratulations guys!
@anderkravis @sparkdevelop Thanks 🙏
Solid team here. Congratulations.
@timmywahba Thank you 🙏
@timmywahba @wholeearthweb thanks Timmy!
Congratulations, This is a great product. I recommend everyone downloads Finimize.
Here's why: @beastearth has no conflict of interest in this, other than knowing what this team has built before, and know what they have set out to do. Now that I see it, I am it just confirms exactly the standard of work I knew they would deliver and will grow.
I know @jacksonliving - he has that unique quality of self-discipline, vision and will do what it takes to get from A-Z. Don't underestimate the speed of which this app will grow and develop adhering to user needs, with a mind to the dollars and sense of building a profitable business that provides value to all stakeholders.
So I have full confidence in what this will grow to become. The same can be said for the team overall - @lukeleighfield @wholeearthweb @anderskravis @michaelgunnulf Finimize App: Finance simplified so you can be your own financial advisor.
Thanks so much @timmywahba ! Really excited about this launch!
whoop, this is right up my street, finances have been, shall we say, better organised before... hopefully things will get tidied up somewhat now. A great tool for me, keeping several moving parts in one place! Thanks and well done team!
Awesome @hunterdoug! We believe the Finance industry is one of the least transparent sectors yet can have such a massive impact on our lives. Time to unleash the power of community!
@hunterdoug Hope you like V1 – lots more to come down the road 😉
Congrats team! When did you all decide this newsletter was going to become an app? And how did you decide what to add in the app that the newsletter was not solving?
@andrewett The newsletter assists with a particular problem - help me understand what's going on in the financial world.
Our plan has always been to create a broader product to address other typical struggles people have around investing/finance - What investment strategies are out there? Where could I invest? How much could I invest? etc.
We are aiming to put together a toolkit that will help our users answer these, and empower them to make better financial decisions as a result 👊
Max, the founder, has written a blog post about our vision and product philosophy: https://medium.com/finimize/finance-shouldnt-be-any-different-432b60c7cc6f
Fantastic product, I was already hooked to their newsletter and I think this launch of an app makes perfect sense.
Dowbload this app and you won’t regret it.
@freddieo Awesome, thank you for your kind words!
Seriously the best app ever when it comes to bite size financial news but very relevant! Works just as well for the newbie as it does for the experienced investor!
@leonidus444 thanks Leo! Anything you’d like to see from us in the next version?
Pretty good, the responsive break points are too wide for the iPhoneSE on their website, so links allow floating left and right scroll. Maybe worth reducing this for iPhoneSE users?
@olliesblog Hey Ollie – We'll take a look into that (big pet peeve of mine too!)
