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.
The project is broken into three phases, where each phase contains features from the KaChing web interface that would be desirable for the iPhone.
Below is a timeline of the project that is updated concurrently with development. The status can be not started (NS), in progress (IP), testing (T), or complete (C).
