Ratings and Reviews
Great user-generated content; poor mobile app
I use SeekingAlpha to read the bull/bear case on stocks I’m considering investing. The free content is pretty good (I’m not a paying subscriber-more on that below), and the average commenter on this platform is well above-average for internet (event financial sites) comments sections.
This app structures all the content around a “Portfolio” you construct when getting started. Not the best idea, but do-able.
Comments- Comments do not show up on most articles when I tap through to either read the whole article or tapping directly on the comments-count bubble. Big miss.
Charts- Y-axis on daily/multi-day/year line charts show seemingly random numbers, rendering the charts fairly useless. Also, there’s no YTD chart option.
Embedded images in articles open inadvertently- when scrolling through articles, if you happen to touch an image, it will open into full screen view. Lots of times, I do not intend to click the image but it opens on an errant tap.
App crashes if you post a comment- In those instances where comments DO load in articles and you contribute a comment, the app crashes once you hit post.
The above major glitches are a key driver for why I haven’t signed up for the pay SA service. If I can’t trust you to get comments and charts right in your mobile app, why would I trust that my experience on the paid content platform would be good?
Developer Response ,
This feedback is extremely helpful. We are working on fixing the outstanding issues on the app. The current 3.10.7 release is quite significant, although there remains one outstanding issue related to logging out and in again, where some functions of the app start failing.
Whoops, you broke the app!
“The data could not be read because it isn’t in the correct format” is the pop up error message I get when trying to post comments. Clearly, this is censorship since many other people are still able to post comments. Someone complained about this in the feedback forum three months ago but the post remains unanswered by SA support staff. When I tried replying to that comment, the app prompted me to sign up and sign in, even though I’m already signed in! When entering in my user email address, it prompted me to create a new account. Finally, whenever I try scrolling down my list of portfolio stocks, the app often inexplicably jumps up in the scrolling - something that never happened in previous versions. You would think such a long-standing and widely-used app, especially one used for financial advice, would have better quality control, better feedback forum response habits and be above censoring posts. These practices are shoddy at best and shameful at worst.
August 2018. Down to (*). In response to my critical feedback at SA, they have removed my ability to comment on postings. No great loss, but censorship as a response to critical feedback merely validates my comments. As of today, the app remains buggy and all three indices are listed in dollars!! Does anyone even audit this app before they publish updates? Disappointing.
May 2018. Back to (**). Another upgrade and another example of inadequate testing and deployment. Required I login with upgrade and then required I add a portfolio as it assumed I was a new user. Once added, I could access my portfolios and delete the new one. I don’t care for this version interface. It could be more compact and deliver more detail. Check out the Stocks Live app for an example of excellent interface design, and boy do they test before deployment.
Previous rating (***). Better than previous rating (**), but I hesitate to score higher until a few update cycles. Lost my portfolio during one of the recent app updates.
