    This discussion thread covers the iPhone trading simulator, iPhone sports finance learning platform and the iPhone (real money) sports market trading interface.

    If you have a favorite iPhone application (sports, finance or unrelated), please list it here and explain why. This information will be used in our research to influence the handset interface design and application building process. Thank you for your input.

    Apps I use have to be simplistic. What I really enjoy are widgets. This way there are no apps to open…just a visual and an easy user interface.

    iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad users, I NEED your input:

    Of these three stock market simulators, which do you prefer and why?

    1. iTrade
    2. Stock Wars
    3. Market Millionaire

    Of these two fantasy baseball platforms, which do you prefer and why?

    1. ESPN Fantasy Baseball 2011
    2. Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball 2011

    Please take the time and participate. Your input on this subject will form
    the basis of the iPhone SRI simulator design specifications. The iPhone
    SRI simulator is the key to getting our project to the next step.

    Thank you.

    Here is the iPhone SRI simulator screen shot:


    My apologies for the roughness. My handwriting is awful.

    This will operate like Forex and other types of commodity index trading. There will be no bid or ask depth. You buy and sell contracts at the last tick. All 30 MLB teams should have their prices continually simulated based upon some simple rules regarding maximum/minimum movement on each tick. The prices should change every second according to a random direction and random amount defined by the set rules. This will create a continuous (every second) table for each of the 30 teams from the moment the simulation begins.

    There would be a simple accounting page where traders could make fantasy money deposits and withdrawals. I don’t want to fix the amount of money because I want potential traders to see what it would be like to deposit amounts that are more in-line with their reality. If a guy wants to only deposit $100, then he needs to see how that works out in this market. The same thing goes for someone who wants to deposit $1,000, $10,000..etc. There would be an account history page where they could see their trades, deposits, withdrawals and fees. Commissions would be deducted from each trade according to the real prices charged in today’s financial markets.

    Other than a signup page and a few other simple support pages, I don’t think this is too complex.

    If we could have a page of the top traders (by % gain over a period), that would add to the excitement.

    This is what we need to get moving.

    Thoughts everyone?

    Every iPhone comes with a “Stocks” application pre-installed. It is very easy to use and incredibly intuitive and the installed base is ALL iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad users.

    So, in the spirit of starting with the familiar, I used that design to create the iPhone SportsFolio Manager 1.0.

    See: http://thenewsportseconomy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/iPhone.SportsFolio.Manager.3.25.11.pdf

    Again, sorry for the sloppy handwriting.
