Tinybeans (ASX:TNY) had an absolutely outstanding week with its shares rising 98 per cent to hit $1.19 on Friday.

The company, which has an app that allows parents to securely share pictures of their children with family and friends, announced the launch of a new content platform.

The new platform will allow Tinybeans to procure content from external sources, allowing for the proliferation of new information sources around parenting advice for the app’s 3.2 million users. At current prices, shares in TNY have now almost quadrupled from 27 cents in late February.

The ASX’s newest member, bug-fighting biotech Next Science (ASX:NXS), rose 30 per cent to $1.79, though the company released no significant news.

And ResApp (ASX:RAP) shares jumped 24 per cent to 15.5c this week after the company released positive results from an adult trial of its coughing app.
