Issue #126 — View online — Suggest a link

The latest news and information about startups and innovations from the mobile world.

The GameStop story this past week is definitely wild.
Thanks to GameStop - Robinhood ranked #1 on the app store this past week followed by Webaull and Reddit (surprise!).
If I didn’t know any better, I would think I was looking at the Finance category and TikTok just decided to pivot. =) Even though Robinhood was the top dog, traditional brokers TD Ameritrade, Etrade, and Fidelity are catching up.
