I have just recently released an Android application for monitoring your Havelock Investments portfolio:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rbonestell.myhavelock

It only requires portfolio read access with an API key generated by your account on HavelockInvestments.com, it cannot perform any other actions on your account.

I'm in the process of adding more functionality, including charts. I also have a small group of beta testers on Google Play providing feedback on new features. If you're interested in joining the beta testers, join the myHavelock Google+ Group then click the "myHavelock Early Access Enrollment on Google Play" on the group page.

Right now I'm doing this solely for donations:

Thanks!

No, it does not have the USD value but that's a pretty good idea!

This is great. I just can't believe Havelock (a US$40,000,000 company given all the value they're holding) can't spend 3-4 BTC to get this coded up themselves…

Havelock are kinda triggering my 'scam' alarm a bit...

Thanks! iOS is next, assuming they even allow me to publish it on the AppStore...  Angry

Yeah, I'd be stoked if they offered to buy it from me! In my experience communicating with them, they are very professional and helpful. However, I see your point in that they haven't made many changes or advanced much technologically in quite some time. Makes me think that there might be something big coming, but I have no data to back that up.

Thank you rbonestell for a great looking easy to use App.

Setup took less than a minute.

We have been approached by several developers to create different types of Apps to integrate with our platform and we do believe that a good trading app is needed and we are working towards that goal.

In the meantime thank you once again rbonestell for taking the time and developing this great App, we know we will use it.

OK, you've redeemed yourselves quite a bit in my eyes. But take note - outward public appearance is very important for a company of your size. I know you probably didn't expect to be worth so much so soon, but now you've got people counting on you to secure all our futures!

myHavelock v1.1 has been promoted from Alpha to Beta this week! I have edited the original post to include a screenshot of the primary new feature: performance and volume charts.

Again, to access early alpha and beta versions of myHavelock please join the myHavelock Google+ Group and enroll in early access for the app!

This version is expected to be promoted to production early next week.

FYI, iOS version coming soon!

Great news. Just please don't make it free. Make it good, and price it at $5 at least.

Out of curiosity, why do you recommend charging?

I'm all for earning revenue from my applications but in my experience the ad-based or donation models have been more lucrative.

Awesome I just got my LG G2 today, I'll be sure to join the google groups soon and try to test it out!

Either you own the bitcoins(private keys) or you don't. However with moneroj, nobody knows what you own.
Secure. Private. Untraceable.

I'm all for earning revenue from my applications but in my experience the ad-based or donation models have been more lucrative.

Professional applications for banks and financial services are usually free - look at the apps for Lloyds, Barclays, American Express, Bloomberg etc.

Using a freemium or ad-supported model cheapens the user experience and reduces the professionalism of the app. Could you imagine checking out your current account balance on your app, only to have a banner ad for payday loans flashing across the bottom of your screen? Blerg - cheap and nasty.

If you have to charge, I'd suggest somewhere in the region of £1.59/$2.59 - but make it worth it. But, this should really be funded by the group that stands to benefit the most - namely, Havelock. They have just paid the developer 1 BTC, which is a good starting point.

I'd estimate a good app for a flourishing new financial service should net the author in the region of $50,000-$100,000 (I say this because the app for telling you where to stand on the London underground for the quickest exit earned its developer £50,000 - $80,000). A very worthwhile reward for contributing to our growing little ecosystem here.

Thanks for the feedback!

My original intention was to release myHavelock free (without ads) and request donations, then eventually extend myHavelock (ultimately) to be a full-featured Havelock Investments client where users must pay to unlock the trading features - otherwise they can only monitor their portfolio. Perhaps I can get away with pricing that functionality in the range you have suggested.  Grin

So why is havelock not willing to develop apps themselves?

They hold a theoretical $40m - yet they have the most basic trading page, terrible stock selection/follow up (NeoBee anyone?) and no hint of an iOS app.

This is not the behaviour of a $40m company, but a group of college-aged garage band scammers.

Be careful out there.
