Ratings and Reviews
Not bad at all.
Pros: All the expected functionality is there and working. The charts are quite good.
Cons: Charts take a while to load. The chart trading is good, but be prepared for a few seconds of lag. It is sorely lacking a way to enter OCO orders. Minor stuff: Switching to another app and back, or even an incoming phone call, causes the app to lose its connection to the mother ship. Usually it re-logs-in in a few seconds, but don't plan to switch back and forth with a calculator app. Also, switching to paper trading and back requires you to re-enter both passwords, making that impractical to do frequently too.
The phone (as opposed to tablet) version doesn’t let you see contract details or trading hours if you have an open position.
Overall: Better than most bespoke brokerage apps.
Simple changes would make this so much better
I can't understand why you don't provide simple things like showing the expiration date or DTE for an option. Or why the unrealized pnl of an option is based on the last trade price, rather than the current bid/ask. It seems like you don't use your own product, or you would have already made such changes.
I use mobile versions of ThinkorSwim, IB, and this. This is a distant third. I wish you would at least try a little.
Stable. Useful in a pinch.
Use it more frequently than I thought I would, given its limited functionality.
First thing to add would be Touch ID.
Reentering the password each time is painful. Also, the background color palette makes it hard to see P&L values.
But these are minor quibbles.
Over time this app should get better.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
