Investment app

Hi to everyone , I finally can wake up in the morning knowing I am saving money Happy
I started investing a couple weeks ago in a new app called Clink and so far I have gained about 2% . The money I save is in small amounts of $50 a week but for some like me it's a lot and it is definitely starting to make a difference for me. Happy
I thought it might help young people like me.

As a top post, this feels spammy. Try adding those others

http://www.wired.com/2014/08/acorn-app/ for example is the tip of the iceberg for such apps.

Frankly I think you are much better off moving to those newer bank and investing systems.

When my son turned 18 I walked him through this and now he has banking, ATM, investing and more with Scottrade. He has a few monthly dividend stocks that make enough for his phone bill and a little more.

Clink? Pass.

It smells like spam

most investment apps can make you money if you know what you are doing. No app is going to magically make money for you. if anything, with all the permissions it has, it is more likely making money off of personal information it gathers from your device.
