Tweaker Labs announced today the public invitation to the beta phase of the Tweaker stock market app for Android phones. Available as a free download to invited users, Tweaker plays as a competitive stock market game with an online leaderboard and cash prizes; in addition, Tweaker also acts as a powerful market valuing tool for finance professionals. Users can sign up for invitations at Tweaker Labs.
"Our goal with Tweaker was to create an easy-to-use app that was equally fun and powerful," said Courtney Couch, CEO and co-founder of Tweaker Labs. "The competitive side of Tweaker, along with the leaderboard and cash prizes, creates a fun way to learn stock valuations. However, the powerful tools and objective feedback can help stock market professionals validate their modeling scheme. It's really something for everyone."
Tweaker works by getting user predictions on cash and growth trajectory. This data goes into a proprietary algorithm based on the process of fundamental cash-flow modeling, and the outcome evaluates the user's accuracy. For stock market amateurs, this introduces a simple, addictive game while teaching the basics of stock market ups and downs. For professionals, this creates a transparent and objective record of their modeling -- and with Tweaker's public leaderboard, it's a free and effective marketing message that demonstrates how effective a firm can be.
"We like to say that Tweaker gives your phone a PhD in finance. It does all the difficult number crunching so that the real focus is on the user's skill and knowledge," says Trent Nevills, Tweaker Labs’ other co-founder. "It's perfect for anyone who's ever been interested in the stock market. And it's a significant marketing tool for professionals out there."
Tweaker brings finance into the era of social media by bringing users together into an immense online community. Through the online leaderboard, Tweaker users can see how they compare against the best of the best, whether they're amateurs or professionals. Each month, Tweaker's best users will receive cash prizes, in addition to connecting with social media outlets to help users compare their Tweaker score with friends and family.
"Social media has become so important in just about every area of life. Finance is the final frontier," says Couch. "With Tweaker, we've connected the financial world, so users can come together, compete, have fun, and even learn from each other regardless of their experience. It's a level playing field, and best of all, it's free."
Tweaker’s future includes its public launch and eventual distribution to iPhone users. For more information, visit Tweaker Labs.
