Increasing discoverability with cards
Cards are used for news updates and labeled with green badges to indicate the quantity of unread stories or messages. Users can easily dismiss cards with a simple swipe left.
More importantly, cards are used to represent each stock in a person’s portfolio. This allows users to organize related information easily. When pressed, the cards animate and transition to fill the screen from their point of origin. The value of the stock is represented by a large number and a graph, both of which animate when the stock value changes.
Stocks that are of interest to the user can be followed, unfollowed, and added to a person’s “Watchlist” for tracking and potential purchase. The search function uses reveal animation and autocomplete to make it easier for users to find more companies to add to their “Watchlist”. Finally, a snackbar informs users when a stock has been added or removed from their list.
