What are the first actions you take?
The first thing I have to do is wait a bit; the landing page is slow to load for me which is likely because the server is in UK and I'm in US. The main delays for me is the video that loads in the heroic banner and the nav bar when I scroll down the bg doesn't pop-up behind the nav items - as in, the logo and white text for instance have a transparent background for a little bit before the page finishes loading. After the page loads, I look at the content on the homepage and then go across the main navigation on the top header.
What was your journey navigating the site like? Does the flow make sense?
The journey is straightforward and easy to understand what kind of app this is. Personal Capital is probably the app I use most on a day-to-day weekday basis. Mainly, because I use it to track my stock portfolio as I find how they present it more valuable than the actual stock apps. Plus, Personal Capital aggregate all my accounts, which I love! That being said, I would leave Personal Capital in a heart beat if all-things-being-equal, plus:
- Improved real-time stock updates
- Improved historical record of my finances / stocks (such as, how does my actual historical stock portfolio look through trading versus my projected history based on what stocks I have now)
- Really, the same comment above across all accounts
- Improved spending habits, projections, reporting, etc like Gosavex appears to be headed towards
- Q3: Who do you believe the target audience is?
What do you believe a reasonable price is and what do you believe a high price is?
I do wonder - what is the monetizing strategy? Personal Capital, for instance, pushes financial planners. What will Gosavex offer?gosavex 6 months ago
Mobile app is free for all users and this same will be in the future. This app currently is for personal finance management but our mission is to build a marketplace for bonds and loans. We will earn on commissions and interest rates from loans.
- Q5: Do you find the product desirable?
What would you change about the website?
- Performance issues on my side of the world
- The logo I find a little distracting - it's almost like it doesn't belong because of the lack of contrast; which would be fine if the narrow contrast was a theme across the site; but, since it doesn't seem to be a theme it feels a bit off
- The cards on the blog page don't present to well, there is a 4th post that sits on the right side of the page and is too close to the post above it. I'd also suggest equal heights on this page

- The app onboarding is pretty straightforward
- Eventually, I'd add a location or currency selection so it can be localized based on where user is as apart of the onboarding flow
- The active button on the bottom tool bar feels too big to me; I keep wanting to tap it but that's not the purpose of the active button. It kinda feels like the floating action button that is typical on Android apps (I downloaded the iOS app btw)
- I like the demo mode, good idea!
- I'd like to see stocks; personally, that's the key thing I like to look at
- When navigating around the app, sometimes there is no back button and I struggle to find my way out - usually I have to click on the dropdown in the header
- The color theme in the app doesn't feel consistent - it feels like there are contrasting colors that don't necessarily compliment each others
- I wonder about credit score - you get dinged when your credit score is pulled; how do you plan to have it in "real time"? Is it a projected score vs an actual?
Thanks for this feedback. The app is implemented in react native so one app for both OS and some functionalities could not be fully adjusted to the iPhone design. Thanks for the color suggestion, we will check it.
Regarding to credit score, we are still working on an algorithm for it. It will let you know the projected score in real-time without affecting your score and if you would like to take a loan by our app it should be enough for assessment.
