📳 Here’s what you can expect from the mobile application.
ℹ️ Some of the Unusual Whales subscription features cannot be accessed in their entirety through the app. Please visit the website for full functionality. If you are not subscribed you will not be able to access all of the features as seen in this guide!
ℹ️ Some of the push notifications you’ll receive (Twitter Chatter, House Trading) are simply that: a notification. They do not lead anywhere into the app (just yet!). Bear with us as we continue to develop the service and the mobile application.
📳 You can download the mobile app here:
If you’re having issues please uninstall and reinstall the application. A force quit/restart may be required as well. If you need additional assistance, please email us at [email protected].
After successfully logging in for the first time, the app will take you to the 🔔 Alerts tab by default. You can navigate the application by selecting any of the tabs on the bottom. The 🔔 Alerts tab mirrors the website’s Alert feed.
You can use the search bar to filter for a specific ticker. Additionally, ‘advanced’ filters (such as emoji, start and end date) can be applied as well by selecting Adv in the search bar.
You can sort the alerts by the Alerted At time, or by the Volume.
Selecting Your Hunt will take you to alerts that match your notification criteria, which can be adjusted on the Notifications Settings page.
Selecting Runners will take you to alerts that are ‘running’ (> 10% gain). You can also see those on the Runners page.
Subscribers can utilize the green switch to view Public alerts (free alerts) or All alerts (free + premium). Keep in mind that there is fundamentally nothing different between free and premium alerts: the only difference is the speed in which free alerts are delivered to nonsubscribers.
You can view additional information on the alert by selecting the alert anywhere on the alert details. We will hit on this next.
Calls are marked with green, and puts are marked with red. Applicable emojis will be displayed above the alerted time. You can save any alert by selecting the ♥️ heart outline emoji. Once you’ve done so, the heart will fill and the alert will be added to your Saved alerts, which can also be accessed here as well as on the 🥗 Extra tab.
After you’ve selected an alert, you’ll be taken to the alert detail page.
In this graph, the X axis is time and the Y axis is the premium price. The blue dot is the approximate ask price of the option at the time the alert was issued.
You’ll find the full options details on this same page, including the greeks.
If you continue scrolling you will find the ‘Big Orders’ that we discussed previously in the 📝 Alert Doc, as well as recent dark pool trades for the alerted ticker. You will also see historical volume/OI and the chain details, which were also discussed on the Alert doc.
As previously mentioned, app functionality is limited as compared to the 🌊 Flow tool on the website. Please visit the website to access the full slate of Flow tools.

You can use the search bar to filter for a specific ticker, as well as adjust premium values.
You’ll see the transaction details, including whether it was a buy or a sell (denoted by B/S). Associated emojis are also included above the transaction time.
The charts can be toggled on and off to your liking. Selecting a Flow transaction will bring up additional charts, including the ‘Levels’ charts. Please visit the 🌊 Flow/🔮 Dark Pool Doc for more details on the information provided on this page.
The 📈 Stocks tab informs you of stock purchases that are outside of normal standard deviation. This information is also available on the Stock Alerts page. Please remember that you’ll find functionality to be slightly limited on the application.
Selecting Crypto will take you to an abridged version of the Crypto Whales pages. Selecting Stocks will take you back to the default view of the Stock feed.
You can search for a specific ticker, and sort all results by alerted at time or by volume.
Each alert will tells you the ticker ($BSJS), the daily volume (31.4K), and the average volume over the last 30 days (2.8K). Additionally you’ll find the volume deviation from norm in the white box (in the case of $BSJS, it is 6.08).
You will find an abridged version of the 🗞️ Live News Flow here.
You can search for news for your desired ticker and view relevant headlines.
Some versions of the application may be bugged and will not allow users to enter a ticker, as displayed in the image above.
🔮 Dark Pools

If you are attempting to diagnose a push notification error, please use the provided button. If that doesn’t work, please uninstall and reinstall the application. Uninstalling and reinstalling may also possibly diagnose the application not recognizing an active subscription.
