Really needs landscape mode It will be a while before I trust trading through the app, but for monitoring it's quite fine. Landscape view is necessary for people like me with small devices and large font settings.

Cam Grant

Needs bug fix Used to work brilliantly on my galaxy s3, but since upgrading to s6 you cant manage orders. Needs a bug fix on the newer versions of android asap!

Ben Peoples

What the hell?!? Why can I not change an order that is essentially the one functionally this app requires. Yet the show purpose of the app is gone... Step up your game!

Peter S

Half Baked on phone ok on tablet Still can't check ORDERS on both accounts, defaults to Personal account and will not allow me to view Fund account, ongoing problem and annoying. Cook it a bit more guys!

Raymond Tang

Terrible at managing orders You can submit an order from the app, but not amend or cancel.. How stupid and frustrating!! You would expect this to be basic functionality.

David Leotta

Issues with viewing orders Just upgraded to Lollipop and ever since individual order details cannot be viewed or amended.

Towelie Towel

It just gets worse You would think a company that makes billions in annual profit could develop something that works on a tablet. Even the phone app is so limited that it is only good for checking prices.would give zero stars if I could

Kaylene Somerville

You have got to be kidding! I am not a sofisticated user but this spp Is just rubbish.

Russell Costello

Needs auto-rotate. V limited function It's okay for a phone but needs to be worked up into a tablet version. It doesn't rotate to landscape view and the functions are too limited compared to the browser. Only really good for a quick look at your portfolio and perhaps some other simple actions.

Sun Nickerson

Used to be fine Nowadays it crashes constantly.. C'mon Comsec, get it sorted, or its time to consider using another brokerage..

Rohan McLeish

Ok but needs work Great app but always seems to have an issue with connecting to the network

Jim Zovaro

App crashes every ten seconds App is laggy and yet has limited data available...other free apps have arguably more useful info, do not crash and use less of my phones power.

First Last

Can't select accounts Pretty good app. I use the watchlist everyday. But when I click on buy, it defaults to my share account. So I select the account, it takes me to another screen where my share account is listed and my margin loan account. But I can't select my margin loan account. So then I have to go to the website and buy the share. I managed to select it once by tapping everywhere about a 100 times but I can't replicate it again. Needs more testing.

Cameron Miller

UI Is Tedious The horizontal scrolling UI on the portfolio and watch list is really unpleasant to use. At least you should allow landscape mode so we can see a few more columns without panning. Customisable column order would be more helpful.

Tzu-yang Wang

Good for phones but terrible for tablets This app really needs landscape mode. With tablets which frequently when associated with keyboard sit in landscape mode, it is very difficult to use.

Tony Kerem

Long time sufferer It hasn't worked on my sony xperia z for 16 months . I have contacted commsec dozens of times only to be fobbed of. Shamefull

A Google User

? Awesome! Now I can lose money on the stock market while on the road. Update: now that I can't change /manage my orders, I keep making so much money. Please fix this bug!

Ashley Rodan

Use it nearly daily, very good could be improved I'm happy that's commsec has an android app for starters. No other respected online broker has an android app in Australia. Basically why I chose to go with commsec. The app is good for only very basic tasks such as company research watch list and orders.

Luke Zhou

Can't see details of the orders On the order page, each order has an arrow on the left. However click the order doesn't bring me to the details of that order

Rob Hickman

Can't even log in... No more need be said!

Amit Canberra

Unable to modify an order Tried reinstalling, still the same issue. Please fix it.

Admiral Mason

This app is the very average. Why is there no landscape mode? I can live with the other faults in the app but not this.

Tom Hilliar

This new version is awful Loved loved 5/5 the old one. This is terrible. Have to scroll around madly to see anything. Bring back the all in one screen please!?!?!

chirag dahiya

Better but needs improvement I use this app all day on HTC M8 GPE, no issue of crashing but sometimes I can't refresh. I have to exit and start again.Scrolling is a pain. At the end of the day it does the job. Can't select margin account as default for orders.

Tul C

I can't see The font size is too small and with no landscape mode l can't see the writing.

Matthew Fleay

App doesn't open Crashed for me twice then doesn't reopen. It works once I uninstall then reinstall.

David Batchelor

Stop changing the layout and the familiarity of your comsec site. Very very very ANNOYING..!!!

A Google User

Awesome anywhere you go!

Mike Feghali

Works ok but crashes need fixing Works ok. Trade without issue. But doing a pinch on the charts view will crash it every time

John C

A lot better, keep up the improvements A big jump from the last few updates. Keep up the good work!

Rory Davis

Needs more accurate data on smaller stocks

Carmelo R

Love the new app! Love the free alerts with push notifications! Also very handy to link to the CBA app off my CDIA account in portfolio. #1 trading app in Oz

Ben Nicolson

Commsec What a waste of time. Slow as a snail then crashes every time on a basic stock query.

Huy Tran

hogging cpu This version drains battery too quick. Please fix it.

Gray Ralph

Comsec I installed the Comsec update on my android and it now keeps crashing when i open quotes.

Suresh Kumar

Cannot amend delete orders. Cannot alter or delete orders. Frustrating.

neil armstrong

I have been complaining no for many months when you click onto the portfolio tab for a breakdown your `Portfolio` tab, as as you click the app keeps crashing (the other tabs are ok). Commsec is NOT listening!

Kieran Simpson

Remember sort order in watchlists It's extremely frustrating to refresh data in my watchlist, or change screens/return and find that I have to resort the list.

Wally Salinger

CommSec Share trading on ASX

Charles Barsoum

orders work now on lollipop :-) finally fixed, thank you!

Khiem Huynh

Everything is good again. The Universe has has realigned.... I can view and edit sales orders again.

Paul White

Very Poor Put all the details in for an order but cannot see anyway to actually go ahead with the order, needs a button to send order,

Miles Tkunga

Work great Charts could be better.

Ben Peoples

Modify orders?!,! Why can I not change an order that is essentially the one functionally this app required!... Step up your game!

David Leotta

MAJOR ISSUES WITH AMENDING ORDERS Just upgraded to Lollipop and ever since individual order details cannot be viewed or amended. Now a fix has been implemented. It works but the app still hangs when orders are amended. A buggy app unfortunately.

Michael Baker

Not good Crashes going from any of the main pages (portfolio, watchlist, etc) to detailed view, such as individual stocks quotes, portfolio breakup, etc.

RO Birch

Issues with scrolling Ever since last update, I can't scroll down to the bottom stock on watchlist or portfolio list

Richard Jacobs

Ideal Everything that might reasonably be expected in a smartphone platform for ASX listed securities.

David Yonan

Great app since latest release! Let's you do everything. Great app.

Thien Phan

Awesome app Amazing app. Keep it coming. Well done!!

Gaurav Piya

Issue amending order in lollipop Can't amend individual order in Lollipop Android (samsung s6)...


Can't manage orders! Software designed for mobile trading doesn't allow order/trade management. Forget something Commsec?

Peter S

Thanks Big improvements with the last couple of updates I'm not aware of any functions that, now can't be completed with this app the watchscreen widget is a great addition

Joshua Snell

Can't login The app has worked fine the past few months and now all of a sudden I can't login at all.

Jeff Roberts

Unreliable Latest release has not fixed login problems. Still get network error message described by so many others. Poor show CBA!

Mark Spalling

New watchlist widget The new watchlist widget isnt showing up my watchlist stocks, its blank..please fix.

Tony Kerem

Long time sufferer Cant log in, a drop down box constantly appears with the same messsge for the last couple of months - "We cannot log you in due to network or system issues, Please try again later. " The app has never worked properly, this is the latest disaster, fix it now!!!!. I have contacted commsec dozens of times only to be fobbed of most of the time. Shamefull

Matt S

Can't log in!! So many bugs It is incomprehensible that a trading app can consistently give error "cannot log in due to network issues, please try again lately"... This happens 1 in 4 attempts. Then when I can finally login I get bugs and crashes such as not loading market data, graphs loading as blank and forced stops. Don't want to but will have to move to another bank for trading...

Kain Rafferty

This app works great on my Nexus 6P. I hope you update it to support fingerprint scanning.

Rob Dark

Log in problems Like others recently I have to repeatedly force close for log in to work. Pretty annoying. Would also like to see daily trade history in the stock data. More advanced charting like what is available on the commsec website would be a plus too.

Nick Ridley

Can only log in half the time! For no particular reason there is always login issues. Just not good enough when dealing with funds like this.

Anthony K

Not bad Needs more parity with the on line version such a market movers. But does the job.

Robert Warland

Problems Used to be great now too often unable to open pages after logging in. Have re installed no better. Never had this problem before update.

Ian Little

Performance Issues Latest update is crap. Used to be great but now it is rubbish. Will not load all functions properly and sometimes loads a blank page. Had to reinstall the app to make it work

Anna Ware

Consistently can't log in due to 'network errors'. lncredibly frustrating. I expect better quality

Elijah Cusack

New orders update is terrible So many annoying bugs and dead ends throughout the app. Fire this manager and appoint the commbank app manager.

Mark Kortink

App seems to work but there is no widget (android on samsung s5).

Der Thao

commonwealth trade add money automatic to credit card 5065

Jack Spratt

Not compatible with Galaxy S So they've decided all neanderthals with old phones should be excluded from this app. And the version which I DO have on my old phone no longer works..Good one Commsec!!

Rhys Cosmo

Charts not working Was fine... Something has changed, others have the same issue.

Anthony Hilbert

Crashes galore This app is a piece of junk. Keeps crashing and sometimes doesn't display any data.

Ben Carpenter

Can only log in half the time, need to force stop app in settings to resume. Same as Nick

Ivan Gosper

Worked fine until recently, now can't upload market news. Slow to do anything & won't let you log in 1/2 the time. Please fix or will have to find another company.

Tom Scannell

Useless! I can't log in I keep getting the message that my user id or password is wrong

Darin Dhas

Requires force closing often I have to force close this app atleast once in 10 min. Have login issues as well. Not very nice when I miss a good deal.

Chris Le Sueur

Always dropping out and full of issues with network errors

Daniel Holmes

Unreliable There seem to be network problems more often than not

Jerome Paul

Massive performance issues You can't rely on this application, it suffers from massive perf issues when attempting to log in and sometimes navigating or placing orders.

Muhammad Jufri Marzuki

Need a UI refresh Works great. Hopefully future update can incorporate course of sales information. And please update the UI; it looked like something coming from circa Android 1.6

ahmad elhamoui

Not showing in color and loads for a long time and when making a buy or sell after loading info it asks for pin again only to start all over again its crap.

Brendan Hampton

Autofill The app needs to stop autofilling the account name when going to place a trade. Very easy to screw your accounts over

Muhammad Patel

Decent but has issues Decent app. Good for trading on the go. But it does have performance issues

Elizabeth McDowall

Links to old Com Bank app ComBank has updated to new tablet app but Commsec had not been updated to link to this. I have to exit Commsec and open Combank Tablet to see my CDIA account. Annoying!

Rob Ware

Charts now not working Used to work great. Now charts not working.

Paul Kittson

You should me ashamed Great job Commonwealth stifling innovation in Australia by shutting down small bitcoin businesses bank accounts . Any new competition must really worry you when your customer service is so bad.

Baby How-To

No rotate Can't rotate to landscape on the wide portfolio page.......

Nicky Doyle

Can't log in Logged in to combank but can't with this what's going on??

David White

Work's well It's rare I use the app to make an order but everything else seems to work well with accessible and intuitive screens. Would be good to control scrolling motion on the watch screen.

Minh Tam

Massive performing issues Crash so many times.

Michael Minutolo

Too long to load info

Tee Pee

Often cant login!! Not happy! More than 50% of the time i cannot log in due to system update etc etc. I rely on this app and would prefer not move my entire portfolion to anotheŕ platform.

Adam Fitch

1. Cannot log in. Fix this stupid app. 2. Thanks for saying its fixed. Same problem again today. 3. Thankyou for your continued responses. All T's & C's have been accpeted. Same again today. Works after lunch time but seems the app cant handle the morning peak hour log in. Not much use to a day trader.

Sanchit Silwal

Login Issues The app doesn't login sometimes, which is quite annoying.

Kade Merlo

Buggy still Cannot load network data at this time. ....constantly. have to force quit the program every time. Apart from that is great.

Herb D

Please add auto refresh function to the widgets. Auto refresh can be set to manual, 1min, 2min, 5min, 1 hr etc etc. At the moment, the refresh icon is so small for my finger. I have to use my S pen to tap it. 5 stars if this function is implemented. Keep up the great work.

Greg Bowers

Can't login Wish I hadn't upgraded. Never had any probkems before. Now every couple of weeks can't login. Generally need to delete and reload tge app.

Rob Dark

Log in problems Like others recently I am frequently unable to log in and have to force close the app. Data often fails to load for stocks. Must press back twice now to exit portfolio stocks. Everything worked fine a couple of updates ago.


Cant login at all Updated.Login issue is fine, cant login at all is too much.

Callum Smith

What happened to the widget? Started absolutely fine and was working great. However now the widget on my S5 foes not show my watch list

Jeff Roberts

Unreliable Latest release has not fixed login problems. Still get network error message described by so many others. Poor show CBA!

A Google User

Awesome app, the only thing is.. Widget should look more like classic watchlist in the app rather than those random 'windows'.. Also, hard to hit tiny 'refresh' icon

Kunthea Near

Well done! New update is great. Loving the watchlist widget. Is the gonna be a portfolio widget in the future?

Wieslaw Szafranski

Problem to login. Always network problems

Peter Stewart

No login App fails time and time again. I can't login regularly. Very worrying when there is money on the line. But I guess once they have your hard earned money it doesn't really matter to them.

Ben Verstandiker

Need to update list of supported devices I have an S7 and can't login at all no matter how many times I try. Would really like to use it but can't until support is improved for other devices

David Clarke

Great app, maybe not as polished as iOS, but still very good. Future improvement - add a price sensitive ! mark on your Android Widget.

Mathew John

Frustrating experience If i charged Commsec a dollar every time the app failed to start up, then I'd be a rich man already. I can't imagine the amount of lost revenue to investors from not being able to make quick trades because the bloody app fails to start citing network issues. If you want to make on the spot buy and sell decisions (which is what the app should enable you to do), then you won't be able to a lot of the time.

Luke Pala

Constant "connection issues" Used the app on two phones, get the same issue whether I'm connected on 4g or Wi-Fi. Only fix is to close the app externally - very annoying especially when you need timely information.

Yu Min [Greg] Poh

Log in issues I can hardly log in... Most of the time it just tells me the system is busy try again another time (this has gone on for 2 days straight).

Yani Hendriawan

Needs some inprovement Please make it optimised for current flagship phones (s7 lol) widget won't refresh if I'm not signed into my account. Once bugs are fixed I'll rate 5 :)

Rob Dark

Log in problems Like others recently I am frequently unable to log in and have to force close the app. Data often fails to load for stocks. Must press back twice now to exit portfolio stocks. Everything worked fine a couple of updates ago.

todd rander

Wish i could give 0 stars Wont let me log in keeps telling my password is incorrect, also when i go to change it, it then requires my mob number enter that, still incorrect. Go to netbank change my password with ease. Comeback to the app log in, password is incorrect. This app is junk. Was fine on my old phone when i first installed it, now its not

Brandon Cook

Can never log in Always has a network or system error. App is broken and needs to be fixed ASAP everyone is having the same problem


This is disgraceful. If this were some sort of game I would be more understanding. But this is real money. My money. and when a huge corperation like commonwealth bank can't figure it out? Well It's left a bad taste in my mouth. I can't even log in!

Kevin Exton

Works fine. This app is great for checking in on my portfolio. Occasionally suffers login problems. Wish it would let me see more of the in-depth metrics that I can find in the website.

Parminder Kaur

Not working with Android phone Not sure why it is not working with Android phone. Really bad

Alistair Spong

Log in issues Often can't log in and it's getting worse - says its network or system issues but it always occurs after I have logged in once already . Used to be that it wouldn't let me back in if I forgot to log off , now it does it regardless - had same problem on different devices

Robert Chu

Watchlist widget on Android is great!

Sean Murray

Bit Frustrating Doesn't always load and the data seems to lag behind abit. Over all ok but needs sprucing up

Ian Stevens

Worst app Cannot even log in at all

Aaron T

Fails to login a lot of the time. Please fix it

Peter Gasparini

Carn't successfully update. Not sure I want to if others are finding it difficult to log in.

David Ng

Widget no longer seem to work. It's stuck, always blank. Android 5.1.1 used to work.

Luca X. Dou

Alarm Why can't you update the features within the selected share. I.e provided with add alarm option within the selected share so you don't have to exit to another feature, search and add alarm to your already selected/watched items. Need some more thoughts about how this app can ease used experience and improve the overall functionality.


Solid app Need to add in the option for the screen to rotate, its greatly needed for tablets

Graham Lange

Way to go, so convenient !!!

J Huang

Cannot login!!

Yani Hendriawan

Needs some inprovement Works great. I was having problems with the widget not refreshing but I found out that the problem was battery saving mode. Without battery saving mode turned on everything was fine. Now the only problem I have is that the graph is 20-30 minutes behind. It used to be on time. Get that fixed and you'll get a 5 star rating :)

Giang Hai Ha

Intermittent login issue (failed to log in) There are so many comments on login issues and I guess the development team still think it's user error. Even though this error can be bypassed by forcing the app to close and reopen it, it would be professional and nice to fix the issue.

David Qiu

Alerts do not work Your alerts do not work. I have tried countless times to set alerts but your alerts constantly fail to work. Why won't they show up as timely outs notifications on my phone? Please fix

owen burchell

Can't log in This is app is good when you can log usually takes 3-4 attempts. Then again remember the commsec webpage not too long ago a monument to retro websites.

Bill Nill

..... What a POS can't even log in

Matthew Muir

Alerts aren't working Not receiving market sensitive push notifications

Simon Thorpe

Why no fingerprint unlock

Timothy Trainor

Frequent issues

michael Le

Problems Sometimes i would have problems when i try to refresh by dragging down. It would say cant refresh or no internet a commsec client and trade alot so i need this to function properly. It does become annoying that i have to close the app and reopen it...

Mitchell Robinson

Can't log in Keeps saying my password is incorrect although it's the same one I use on my PC. Hopefully you guys can fix it :)

Vijay Reth

Getting there App is getting more features but looks like it was designed in the 90s. More material design!

Tri Tran

Login Issue. Does not allow me to login at all. You should really get this fix!!!

Tyce Arnol

Love it... When it works. I am a big user of the widget to keep a quick eye on my watch list however at the moment, the widget displays no information and will not refresh.

Daniel vanDriel

Wish it had better two factor authentication This app uses text messages as the second factor of authentication. We have seen that text messages are far less secure. Phone companies can be fooled into ordering new sim cards, text messages are unencrypted and easily intercepted through IMSI, and someone can just take your sim card out and then be able to receive two factor authentication codes. I wish PayPal would implement a industry standard: Google Authenticator or my personal favourite, Authy dynamic authentication codes.

Ben Star

Not Compatible?!?!? Not Compatible on the S4. Shameful work. I bet it would be compatible for the Iphone 6 the moment it came out. Very disappointed Commonwealth bank.

Stops working when launching a stock from watchlist Effectively useless as an app. Used to work before updates. Android v 4.0.3

S Carter

Timestamp Just a request.. would it be possible to put a timestamp display in the quote screen for stocks. Thz

Cheukon Fung

Improved As above, really bad design

Tony Elsom

Great app, have used it daily for years and never had a problem.

Michael Baker

Not good Crashes going to Orders. Can't amend orders, so low score.

Maree Lamb

Not consistent Will not update purchase price of shares on portfolio view, despite them showing on same account log in on my PC. Some do, some don't. Irritatingly inconsistent.

Leighton Davis

Needs a clearer way to change the time scale on stock charts. Also would be good to have ETF historical prices in the Research table.

Joe Zhuang

If chart's function can be enhanced It will be 5 stars


Easy to use Nice layout and easy to use for a noob like me

Keith Myles

Alert doesn't work Great app although I set alerts yesterday and it didn't alert me to a price trigger. I almost missed the trade


Please just make it the same as the ios version Recently switched from ios and the ios app is much much better than android version

Chris Parton

Frequent login issues The app has good functionality, but I have to force close the app very frequently or else I can't log in or refresh the watchlist widget.
