Hexagon Finance - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

No, I started coding in the first corona lockdown in March 2020. My entry was Python for Data Science, an online course at udacity. And it turned out to be lots of fun and an easy way to get into programming. After I converted my trading scheme into an algorithm, I was looking for the best suited cross plattform for app developing and ended up with dart & flutter.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Since I had no experience with mobile app development, the hardest part was finding the resources I needed on YouTube and other communities and implementing them into my look and feel for Hexagon Finance. After some months I realized, that app architecture is a thing and completeley reprogrammed the app, which had an massive positive impact on performance and stability.

Banking and Finance professional with strong expertise in product development, process optimization and digitalization. Interested in quant finance, stock analysis and trading.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Simply Wall St for the "exploring" feeling, but they have a huge issue with performance and clarity (at least on mobile)

How long have you been working on this app?

It's been almost a year. (Hexagon Finance is a side project besides my 9-5 job and studies)

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

More and more private investors are entering the market through neo brokers like robinhood. They aren't really familiar with fundamentals and buy shares on the basis of social media recommendations or their gut feeling. With the Hexagon Rating users can discover new stocks and rethink their investment.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

In almost all stock analysis apps you only get to find new stocks based on eather news articles & stock analysis of some experts, or you have to create your own stock screener based on countless metrics. In Hexagon Finance, this work is done for you, and on top of that, it is presented in an appealing user interface. Since we only provide the Hexagon Rating and very superficial data, we also differ in our pricing model and are cheaper than our competitors.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

It is planned to add filter to our stock lists. You can filter by industry, Hexagon Rating, and for me personally very important: Sustainability. For this we are looking for an appropriate data provider to highlight sustainable companies. We also want to create global data coverage for all major stock markets in addition to US stocks.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?
