Ratings and Reviews
Great features but...
This app is truly fully featured and very impressive but IG still have a major flaw in that the update of prices is very unreliable. The problem occurs when the app has been in the background for some time when the prices have not been fetched for some time. There is a facility to reload prices by pulling down a list beyond its top, however this does not update all prices (certainly not in a reasonable time) or indicate when the refresh is is active or finished. This leads to a very misleading view and on many occasions I have taken actions based on very out of date data only to find that a transaction subsequently updates the price.
I now have to select each of my positions to ensure the price is updated and reliable. This can be time consuming, awkward and should be unnecessary.
To me this is a serious flaw also present in the previous releases which should have been addressed by now. All the great features are of nothing if you cannot rely on the prices displayed - this is absolutely fundamental to a product like this. It pains to me knock this otherwise good piece of software but IG must get the basics right first.
Need more work!
It is among the good apps available on the store. The app is good for people betting without much of a plan. There is a feature to add indicators on the chart but they are limited to three value that per indicator. You cannot have more or less than three which kills the purpose of having an indicator. Also, there is no option to change colours for the indicators which makes it difficult to understand the indicators if there are more than two sets of indicators set on the chart.
The concept for the app is very good but there are other apps that do provide the facility to change indicators and set them as you want.
Most of my trading is through iPad but I don't see that working with this app. It needs a little more work and then it is as good as the desktop app.
Moderate improvements with charts, not tools
Loss of some elements of screen flexibility (layouts) which was a key benefit of the previous versions. New version has removed some flexibility but provided further complexity, a difficult trade off that I don't feel has been accomplished particularly well.
Manipulation of charts is definitely better but quickly flicking between different expanded charts for watch list items is not as easy, even with the 'chart view' option.
The layout, colours and placement on the screen of key data, that we are used to, has been jumbled up and it's our job to embrace the change....
