Issue No. 2: Auto-Stash and PRPL

May 13, 2019

Greetings Stashers. Another release just dropped. This week we’re writing about Auto-Stash and design updates on iOS. (Coming soon to other platforms near you…)

Auto-Stash is Going Platinum

It’s been a big year for Auto-Stash. In January, two new strategies, Round-Ups and Smart-Stash, arrived. The whole UI got a much-needed refresh last month. And now Auto-Stash is getting its very own home (not on the home screen). We’re so proud.

Auto-Stash is going down, down sugar…to the bottom navigation bar. That home tile was kind of painful to find, right? Also, the team combined management for your retirement and custodial portfolios into the experience. So now you can access all things Auto-Stash from anywhere in the app. With. Just. One. Tap.


Kind of a long time ago in a conference room in our office, we locked some designers in a room and played late ‘60s heavy metal until they came up with a new design system. The result…

PRPL! Our sleek new accessible design system.

We’re not sure we’re sure where the name came from, but this isn’t just smoke on the water to us, Stashers. Great design truly is the cornerstone of great products.

So throughout the app, you may notice various look-and-feel upgrades. Examples include permanent deletion of two-tone gradient screens, more smart form-fields, super accessible type styles, and simpler experiences. All sorts of good feels.

Every day, we’re continuing to make PRPL even purpler, so stay tuned.

Next time on Made in Concert: Homecoming

We’ll take a look at our new Home experience. It’s already out to 5% of you, so don’t be surprised if you see something new!

Issue No. 1: Search, Settings, and Quick Actions

May 1, 2019

Whether on the phone, in our call center, or commenting on our social pages, you spoke and we listened. We’re going through changes: some big and some small, but they’re all for the better, and they all came from you. Give yourself a round of applause.

The following has already been rolled out to 5% of our users. Sometime next week, 50% will get these changes, and later in the week, everyone should get them.

Splitting the Settings

Because Stash now has multiple account options available, we needed to move some of your settings around so that it’s more intuitive as to whether you want to change something overall or just in a specific account.

Overall: User profile

In iOS, your user profile is moving to the top left of the home screen. Inside, you can adjust specific settings for your Stash account, like your security preferences.


In Android, we put this in the hamburger menu.


Specific: Portfolio management

We’re taking out the Account tab! This was originally in the bottom right in iOS and inside the hamburger menu for Android). Now, if you want to adjust settings for a portfolio, simply tap into the portfolio and tap the gear icon. You’ll be able to adjust settings related to your personal, retirement, or custodial portfolios.

The Search for Stock

We’re adding search functionality to the top right of your portfolio screens—so you can more easily look up funds and companies.


Quick Actions

You’ll now have easy access to transfers, Auto-Stash, and investments from your portfolios. Just use the conveniently placed action buttons on each portfolio screen.
