Today is an exciting day for the team at StockTwits: we are launching a brand new, fully native, iOS Application. For the past few months, our talented mobile engineer @ericalford has been working hard to create a mobile experience that will allow you to truly take StockTwits with you everywhere you go. If you haven’t yet downloaded the app, please do so here.

Before I dive into all the things you can expect to find in our new iOS app, I’d like to introduce myself.

My name is Dave Pinke. I recently joined StockTwits as Head of Product having previously worked at ABC News, Condé Nast and Bloomberg. As a long time fan of the company, I couldn’t be more excited to join the team and help grow StockTwits into the best finance community and market research tool.

In the near future, you can expect to see a lot of new features across all of our platforms. We are also hard at work on a new Android app and can’t wait to bring that to our members on Android later this spring.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any ideas, suggestions, gripes and (hopefully) well-wishes.

Best,

Dave Pinke
