Project Information

Project Overview

kaChing's fantasy stock trading environment has a significant presence on the web, and is seeking to increase its user base by expanding to other platforms. This project intends to transport the fantasy-trading environment to the iPhone platform. The project will have a one-semester implementation time with the final result being a functional program that integrates the touch interface of the iPhone and kaChing’s trading environment. At the end of the allotted time the application should be stable enough for mass-distribution through the iTunes App Store.


This project is being developed by a team of Computer Engineering undergraduates at the University of Arkansas for their senior design class.
