Problem and Solution Summary

The client is a start-up in the financial exchanges and data industry. It needed to expand its mobile application to the Android platform. There was an existing iOS app for monitoring North American equities, and the team wanted to create an equivalent Android version. The challenges included improving libraries for app development.

To address the problem, the Computools team used React Native for Android app development, allowing code reuse and faster development. They integrated the MPAndroidChart library for graphical displays, offering various chart types and high customisation.

Computools was the preferred choice due to its extensive experience, financial industry knowledge and commitment to delivering a high-quality solution.

Project Description

The project was all about expanding the client's reach by creating an Android version of their existing iOS application. The client is a start-up based in the United States, operating in the financial exchanges and data sector with a focus on artificial intelligence and robotics. The plan is to provide innovative trading research tools and platform solutions for fund management, primarily in the North American equities market.

  • Users could restore their passwords if forgotten or lost.
  • The platform provided an online, real-time display of current share prices from North American markets.
  • The app included various chart types, including candlestick and bar graphs, allowing users to visualise price movements.
  • The application featured a set of technical price indicators, like Relative Strength Index (RSI), Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), Bollinger Bands, Stochastic, to help users make informed trading decisions.
  • Users can access comprehensive details about individual shares, including open, close, high, low, bid, bid size, ask, ask size, change and change percentage.
  • The app offered filters for users to refine their search by price range or stock market and a search feature to find specific company shares.
  • Users could create and manage their lists of shares to be tracked.

Story of a team decision

The decision to assemble this specific team for the project was driven by the need for expertise in the financial data industry and prior experience in developing similar solutions. Several team members had previous experience in creating applications for financial markets and trading, which was a significant asset.


Effective collaboration among team members was crucial to the project's success. The team engaged in various activities, including face-to-face brainstorming sessions and video and audio conferences. This allowed them to tackle challenges and make critical decisions throughout the project.

Sprint Retrospective

In the sprint retrospective sessions, the team reflected on the completed sprint. They discussed what went well and what could have been improved.

Planning Session

Before each sprint, the team held planning sessions to outline the work to be accomplished. They defined sprint goals, determined which user stories and tasks would be addressed, and allocated responsibilities among team members.

Sprint Demo

At the end of each sprint, the team conducted sprint demos to showcase the work they had completed. This allowed the client to see the progress made during the sprint and provide feedback.

Communication Flow

The team utilised various communication tools to keep all project participants in the loop. For interactions with the client's team, Skype and email were chosen, ensuring quick decision-making and discussion of issues. Internally, the team used Skype, Basecamp and email for seamless communication, task assignment and progress tracking. Jira also played a role in managing tasks and project-related information.

Project Management Methodology

The project management approach included a combination of Scrum and Kanban. Scrum was used for dividing complex tasks into smaller, manageable parts and visualising the workflow, while Kanban was employed to ensure continuous development and delivery. This combination allowed the team to work on both long-term tasks and issues that arose during development, making the process more efficient. The careful selection and utilisation of these digital platforms and technologies played a crucial role in successfully developing Android applications. They contributed to creating a user-friendly, feature-rich application for monitoring North American equities and aligning with the client's objectives in the financial exchanges and data sector.
