Basic technicals The app is great and all but I could use some technical indicators like macd and RSI on the go.
Scroll Jumping In the Option chain when you click on a option exp date and scroll down the option chain many times it will CHANGE the exp date on you! Sometimes the date changes before one reaches the end of the current option chain. I guess the chain has not completely loaded. When you select an option exp date the option chain should NOT scroll into another option expiration date table. Entry mistakes are very very easy because of this. Remember we are using our fingers!
Unstable Constantly switches to read-only or closes when switching between app and home screen forcing me to login in many times throughout the day.
Connection lost Lately, i got problems logging into mobile TWS after US market closes and weekends. Is this normal?
Great but need improvement Advisor account does not keep history of trades from the watchlist. It only show new orders. I often need to find the purchase price. however, my client account does show. Please fix this.
Bracket/preset Thanks! Getting better each time. Please add capability to do spread orders on Future contracts, and allow saving Order Presets.
Enhanced Capabilities The app does its job, but lacks in user features.
Connection lost Since today I've been getting error msg "Connection lost. Please relogin" update: The IB Tech support team has helped me to resolve this issue. Many many thanks for the quick response!
Connection lost Cannot login at all with LG G3
Consistently Better Please, we need a digital clock that shows seconds for short term traders. Love the real-time candle chart!
Its a good app. The reason for 3 stats are the following drawbacks: 1. No ability to setup multi-leg option orders on futures. Its a must for high trades futures like ES. I have to enter each leg separate its a pain. 2. Same idea no way to enter a single order on covered stock positions. Have to buy stock and sell a call as separate orders. 3. No way to enter pairs trade orders as single order. Like the NOB spread for example. 4. If I sell a strangle the position sell price is erased the next day and order price is gone on
Not working on my Note 4. Will not open. Keeps losing connection. Update, the issue was resolved in a timely fashion.
Good but could be better if anyone cared. I have stopped using it. Inability to individually move and cluster currency groups. Alphabetical order is useless. Needs a 4 hr, week, month chart. Need weekly & monthly pivots. Samsung note 4. 3/12/15 Ok. Looking much better. Still needs 4hr chart, fib. tool, line tool. Etc.i am upgrading the rating to 3 stars.
Unrealized P/L No longer shows unrealized P/L for OTC Pink & BB and sometimes other positions from DJI.
Best Mobile Trading App! Samsung Note 4. Latest update makes it easier to edit my watchlists. I like it better than etrade and td ameritrade mobile apps. Good job IB developers!
Recent update flawed Easy to use but recent update seem buggy, particularly no longer showing unrealized p&l by position which is big inconvinience
No longer showing unrealized P&L by position in latest update
Flawed update Not showing unrealized PL by position since update
Chart function is limited Generally good mobile trading platform. Chart function is limited. No dsi, macd indicators. Cannot draw a trend line. Cannot zoom in/out. Lots of room to improve. I'd like to see a combo option analyze tool as well. The trade and order can only show one day history. Need to add a column of days to expire.I ditched OptionsHouse because of its terrible mobile app. I hope ib would learn a lesson. People are using mobile device to trade more often than you think. You should put more resource and efforts on it.
Very good!!! How do I delete or edit contracts on watch lists? Nice made app. Could you add on charts RSI technical crteria?
The latest update rocks
Awful access, awful design I want to close my account just because of the very awful layout and the constant crashes. People who opened their accounts with IB after seeing the Bloomberg advert like me should sue them for such a lie
not possible to login since today it's not possible to login... problems solved very fast
Good app It would be great if it showed more content on high res screens (e.g. split screen mode), pan and pinch zoom on charts
Crashes every other minute after latest update. Also i can't see volume charts anymore. Edit: it doesn't actually crash on it's own, it hangs and than Android system suggests to kill it, as it never comes back.
Great Would almost be perfect if it had more indicators...need RSI & some of other popular indicators.
New version is terrible Can't connect, constant crashes, worse than bad
Version not frendly
Still needs full stochastics 11/6/14: App is good. Easy to place multiple order types. I have been waiting patiently for many years for the full stochastics indicator..... and am still waiting. Thats my only complaint. Everything else is excellent................................................2/1/15: i dont understand..... now it looks like they reduced the number of candles on every chart! IB can you please make some improvements to the charting apsect of this app. It just seems like its getting worse! :-/
Crashes Within Minutes Every Time. This new updated added real-time charts. FINALLY! Woo-hoo! UNFORTUNATELY the app now crashes within 5 minutes of opening EVERY time I try to use the charts. Please revert to the delayed charts until you get the bugs worked out! I can't wait 5 minutes to reboot my phone because it crashed when I'm trying to enter/exit a position quickly!!!
It's 2015 people I like to have mobile version of trading platform, but IB is not really about user friendly design. You should really think about user experience too. Hope you check what your clients think cause I'm not alone with this thought as you may see in other comments. P.S. same stands for TWS.
Great! Could you please add MACD & Stocastics to you charts?
Great broker, laggy mobile access Add easier access to options on futures
Looks like alfa Guys, your app crashes too often. every time i send it to background and try to open it again (being logged in) it crashes. Fix it please!
???? Displayed on stocks This was an old issue that's returned, most of my portfolio displaying ??? In all columns of portfolio screen except position and AvgPx
A must have Must have for any ib customer! Has saved me during power outages and computer crashes
Amazingly Complete. Really Great! It allows me to do everything I might want to do in my IB account when I'm away from my desktop computer. Interactive Brokers are superb. They never cease to amaze me. Their TWS trading platform is awesome ... and it continually gets even better.
Options prices are not visible on my new hi resolution Nexus 6, they used to work OK on my moto x. Sorely in need of an update to follow android UI standards as the current offering behaves like an app from 2010. The app works, but when time is $ I would like to more easily adjust order limits and such and it keeps logging me out when it switch from home wifi to the cellular network!! Also would be nice if I could share watch lists with TWS for the PC/Mac.
Clunky at times, with missing stuff I wish that secure messages could be delivered to mobile, for folks who want to see these without logging into the full website.
Unstable Constantly switches to read-only or closes when switching between app and home screen forcing me to login in many times throughout the day. It also fails to beep and vibrate to notify on fills even though I have it checked.
Why there are still no facilities for advisor account trading?
Missing daily P&L Unfortunately, it is missing daily P&L.
Crashes every time when opening. Always need to open twice (Samsung S4 + Samsung S6). Would be better if fundamentals were accessable.
Good app but could be better I like the app a lot. But can we get the risk navigator as well.
Unrealized P/L No longer shows unrealized P/L for OTC Pink & BB and sometimes other positions from DJI. Fixed before but recent updates has caused the error again.
Very basic!! Does the basic tasks!! However, the UI is ugly and hard to use!! You guys can learn a lot from Think Or Swim!! Both for mobile app and desktop platform.
Best mobile trading experience Apart from occasional login issues, I find it really cool to be able to trade with real-time streaming data from my phone. It's also getting better with each update.
Good but lacking features The app is overall pretty decent. Would give more stars if there was some more features. Lacking an abundance of studies... no RSI? Come on! Also would like to see more options for the charting like custom bar sizes i.e. i like 3 minute charts currently only 1 and 5.. the charts dont seem to update with the feed and require going back a menu and coming back to stay in line with the data feed. Overall good app for managing your portfolio but lackin some basic features for trading ease on mobile
Interactive Brokers is top! This app has evolved after the initial release. Constant improvements. Overall a great and recommended broker!
Please add additional indicators. It will make trading on the go much easier, other than that, it's a great app.
Setting How i can get greek data for the option? Like beta?
Wonderful This app can completely replace the desktop TWS. Instant order placement works like magic! Even when there is a low network signal this app will connect you the moment it gets signal. Wonderful creation, IB.
Starting today started getting trade errors Was always great, never used a pc for trading because phone app was more convenient, but starting today when I try to close a position I get a pop up message "no trading permissions" in 90% of the attempts. I lost 400$ because it didn't let me sell when I wanted, and untill I opened a pc and logged in it was too late. Had no problem doing it from a pc, but constantly getting the error message on my phone.
No option chain for Options on Futures Equities have option chains but futures only has the spread builder. Makes browsing the futures options market very difficult.
It doesn't update the chart but good enough It doesn't update the chart, i have to refresh the chart by going back and forth between watch list and then actual trading page n chart.. please fix this .. i love everything else about it.
Works fine Some widgets options would be nice (watchlist, portfolio...)
In the latest version I do not see an option of seeing delayed quotes without logging in. It is such a bummer because I cannot keep logging in every time I want to see a quote. Otherwise the app is OK but for me delayed quotes are a deal breaker.
Was fine but now has issues Doesn't show positions if in a single account, only if I show all accounts. Also funky unrealized gains info. I like the security that is much better then other firms. If one sets up the app, you don't need a card. Also the FYI's are great to know when your stocks have earnings coming out and reminders when options expire. I don't understand how people complain about that info or strong security.
Multiple sign ons Great but I always have to enter pin twice to enable trading from read only mode and sometimes it just logs me out altogether just as I'm making a trade to make me fully authenticate even though I might have just authenticated.
IB great simple app on the go this is supposed to be simple app version to execute trades when your on the go and don't have access to your TWS desktop setup , for that it does an excellent job and runs fast
Basic functionality Unfortunately I cannot use this app to chart and execute option strategies.
This app was clearly not designed for Android or written by Android developers. It doesn't follow any of the most basic Android user interface design principles, such as using the back key to go "back", or swiping from left to open the menu. Owing to these flaws the app is difficult to navigate, and difficult to exit!
Forex charting is buggy Many times the forex charts will turn blank. Also, many times I try to touch the wrench button to adjust the frequency on chart and the app thinks I clicked on the chart and it maximizes the chart.
52 high and low My watch list do not provide 52 high and low price during my latest update. Can someone advise.
Works well, but too many permissions The app works really well. I use it daily. Room for improvement: when switching between portfolio and watchlist the cursor position is lost, the option trades do not show the price of the underlying, and similar small issues. Also needs too many permissions.
Martin Budz Only 4 oscillator studies to choose from? Please do better
Still minor connection problem, but at least usable. Overall a good platform.
Help me!!! Can't get the real time chart even when i logging in my real account. I only get the 15 minutes delay chart.
Excellent Keep up the great job in further developing this app. Two suggestions: 1) lift the max number of quotes for watching list from 50 to 100, or no limit. 2) allow the sync of not only quotes, but also the row separator. Thanks.
The calculations of P&L and Unrl P&L are all wrong!!! When it could be fixed?!!
Marvellous. Excellent app to trade/invest in almost anything listed anywhere in the whole world from anywhere and don't think you can get more competitive commission rates.
IB tablet app on Android Very good. I use it every day.
Best Mobile Trading App! I like it better than etrade and td ameritrade mobile apps. Good job IB developers!
Good overall What are the chances of seeing a mobile "rebalance portfolio" tool in the future? Are orders for "All" allocated by Net Liquidation Value? When viewing details about a holding, it would be great to have access to the list of accounts that hold the security and how many shares.
Great Wish it had features of conditions like tws as well.
No trail limit Why there is no trail limit on both buy and sell???????????????? I only saw the trail which gave me the market price when triggered. I do no like that.
Nice App Best online trading platform, powerful mobile app
The app was working well until the latest update broke the log in system. Now I have to restart phone every time to log in with SSL. Even with SSL off, I have to re-login every time I switch back to TWS from another app.
Like the update but... Where is the percentage for unrealized p & l? Most traders work off of % to understand where they are.
Poor connection Half the links in research section do not load... Rest half is flooded by crap from seekingalpha... Noy sure what's the point
Aged ancient UI that needs to be refresh n updated
Really Poor UI Design
Not a Fan Poor UI, im coming from TD AMERITRADE, and their mobile app is AMAZING.. WITH TD you have research, options, news, everything.. search by name, easy customization of watchlists.. easy account updates, positions.. BUT NOT THIS APP.. i use investing APP, Seeking alpha, all are better than this.. sorry IB, but whoever is developing your mobile platform should be fired
Best Mobile Trading App! Great job with the new 3/4/16 update! Really like the new interface. I like this app better than etrade and td ameritrade mobile apps. Good job IB developers!
Great Improvment Much better UI, looking forward more improvement!
Doesn't allow you to create a watch list without logging into your real account And it becomes a security hazard in a mobile
Decent enough for reviewing and trading a relatively simple portfolio. The app lacks many of the tool that are available on the desktop which are necessary for a complex portfolio. Specifically, the Risk Navigator can't be launched, so I can't view my portfolio beta-weighted delta, theta, etc.
Changes hurting usability Examples: back button completely closing app within any module (no navigation stack logic across the whole app). Removal of the module changing behavior from the back button, leaving the only menu access in the worst possible spot for right-handed people (tiny box in upper left corner of the screen). The whole layout is the opposite of convenient. Also, the "stay logged in" doesn't work at all. It lasts maybe until you hit the back button accidentally (since there's no reason now to use it).
No plain bracket orders available The app allows you to set up an order and attach a bracket order to it, but you can't enter a bracket order on an existing position. I called customer support and they confirmed that simple bracket orders can't be done in the app. Also, charts are a little buggy. Many times the forex charts will turn blank (if i go to a different app and come back to this app). You also can't zoom in and out on the charts by pinching and reverse pinching the chart. The Swiss forex app is much better for forex charts.
Thank you for keep improving. Not sure if this is possible but if we can link up with netdania mobile app with live quotes would be amazing. Also, option chain could be little easier to go to a straddle would be great to compare both sides.
disconnect frequently the app always disconnect after i switch to other app briefly to look for info and back. i have to relogin again and again. annoyed.
Great job team! I realised my earlier comment was due to me not setting up the Portfolio page properly. Problem fixed!
Looking for functional improvement Hi, I appreciate the ib effort in improving the app, I just hope to see the following improvement: 1. Rfq for future, options, 2. Support hk warrants and cbbc. Thanks again
Progressing Please improve charts to be able to scroll back. Also, please at more time frames, especially 30 seconds. Thanks!
Keep improving It is great if we can see the greeks for option trading.
Good app Issue is with the charts that too basic and no zoom on them... and there is no daily one min chart really... it should be imo
Best Mobile Trading App! Great job with the new 3/30/16 update! Really like the new interface. I like this app better than etrade and td ameritrade mobile apps. Good job IB developers!
If i place an OCA order with stock A and B, the fund needed is the sum of A AND B? Shouldn't it be just A OR B? Must wrong.
Best update Thanks. The latest update fix the "Back" button issue.
Too many clicks in order to see a chart now. It was nice to see a non-full sized chart on the info page. Please bring that feature back! Otherwise, good product.
OK Would like the app to open to a quote screen containing market data but maybe have to set it up myself? Portfolio news from Seeking Alpha is great. I just switched to IB. TWS for desktop is awesome.
Great app, but I have a small, rather important, question. Is it possible to view Level 2 data within this app?
New look looks great Already did what I needed, but now it looks great too.
Won't connect to cellular network sometimes. Also the look and feel of the app, charts and fonts was better before the overhaul.
I still can't log in to my account...
P&L working IB programmers worked really hard to fix my issue and they provided great support. Issue resolved.
Good enough but need some features Request black or dark background option for charts. Difficult to read on white background
Nice Best brokerage and wonderful app.
stable for monitoring positions
Why is there a delay for quotes on options???
Good but lacking features Edit for recent update : the new update is another improvement and its really awesome to see constant updates. I will be visiting the features poll but still i wish to see more studies i.e. vwap, more customizable charts i.e. custom periods, better options features i.e. greeks and risk analyis charts, also the ability to trade futures(or any) combos! On the desktop for example i set up buy ES sell YM combos and it works great!
Alerts broken now. Love the new indicators, but seems setting alerts is now broken in the app. Does not recognize account number. Edited to add: Jesus, now orders are broken as well! Can't view or edit orders on phone at all. Come on guys! 2nd edit: all is working for now! Thanks for the quick response! This app is so close to what I always wanted it to be for three years now. Hats off to this team.
Last update is very disappointing. Most of the times options bid/ask quotes not showing or disappear. Which is terrible. Colors confusing and fonts are way more difficult to read. Please bring back the previus version, which was excellent. UPDATE: issue promptly resolved. Kudos. Still don't like fonts readability but that's me. Thumbs up
Just started an account with IB, and am glad to know I came in just in time to enjoy the new indicators. Generally well done, but if IB would be able to implement the following suggestions, then I'll change my rating to 5 stars. 1. Ichimoku clouds indicators please ! (Probably the easiest suggestion) 2. Order presets (amt/percentage) like in TWS. It is quite hard to type in values on the phone after all. Would be even better if we can import from the server. 3. Simple digit pin/no need to sign in every time option. I can't count the number of times I lost money (than necessary) because I can't close the position quickly enough. Or didn't gain because I couldn't log in time to buy/short/close fast enough. Also, there's also the security issue of typing your IB password in public. On lower end phones, the app lags when typing the username and password.
New psar doesn't work New additional indicator doesn't work the like parabolic sar. If you gonna add something, make sure that it works in your initial test before you roll it out to the public.
Impressive progress! Moar please! Great job. Don't stop! Please consider (1) better options functionality, i.e IV in chain, Greeks, navigation between option contact and underlying (2) please allow me to select news sources. Seeking Alpha nonsense is driving me nuts! (3) vol skews? One can dream, right?
Font control needed! Don't like the latest update - the smaller fonts worked better. How about letting us control the fonts and their size? Otherwise works flawlessly!
No corporate/sovereign bonds support No corporate/sovereign bonds support in tws Mobile ....
Latest update Not happy with the latest update. Layout and fonts are very weird. . More importantly, the trading is not working well. I can't see my orders and trades. I know that a trade has happened because I can see the position size but it's not appearing in the trade and order pages. Very weird.
Nice Update Nice update however the dividend dates as well as other dividend information is no longer available. Would love to see this return.
working with platform without any limitations
A few comments regarding the new release Although not a big fan of the new look I have to mention their good technical support which address the problem I had with the latest version within a day and released a fix that solved the problem. In general I'm using only the Android app and don't bother to use the PC version yes it does everything I need.
Improved Interface The recent GUI updates really make screen navigation faster and easier. Sets the standard for mobile trading for the active trader.
Cannot login with the latest version!! App always gets stuck at "Please wait while logging in 10/100" or "Please wait while redirecting to the nearest server 10%". How do I roll back to previous version?
Wonderful This app can completely replace the desktop TWS. Instant order placement works like magic! Even when there is a low network signal this app will connect you the moment it gets signal. Wonderful creation, IB.
It is more stylish but less practical. When you are in the portfolio, tapping back closes the app. Before it used to launch the left side bar menu. I really miss that. There is a lot of clutter on the top for each screen. The old version certainly showed more info per screen area. I regret I updated it.
No Option chains for Futures Only has option chains for stocks and etfs. For futures options it only gives you single legs at a specified price you cant build a strategy without having to use the pc. Also in the money and out of money options need some coloring of some sort to differentiate the two.
Login failure under load Looks like their servers can't handle the load due to Brexit. Can login from browser on desktop, but app is stuck with redirects.
Unable to see daily high and low for FX Unable to see daily high and low for FX over last few days. Possibly a bug from latest update. Can you please fix this urgently?
Daily high/low stopped showing Doesn't work on any mobile platform - Android or iOS, smartphone or tablet
The app is nice and handy, but I miss some of the features available in the desktop TWS. For example, Alerts do not pop-up as notifications on smartphone. Alerts created earlier do not help if you are travelling and rely upon your smartphone for taking trade decisions because they do not show up.
Plain bracket order still not available The app allows you to set up an order and attach a bracket order to it, but you can't enter a bracket order on an existing position. I called customer support and they confirmed that simple bracket orders can't be done in the app. Also, charts are buggy. Often, the forex charts will turn blank (if i go to a different app and come back to this app). You can't zoom in and out on the charts by pinching and reverse pinching the chart. When you tap "fyi", it says "loading" but message does not appear.
Not connecting on cellular network, only through WiFi
Best trading app I've used I've been trading stocks for about a year now. I've used Scott trade and options house. This is the best one. It shows me everything I need. I previously used SigFig to manage my portfolio, but with this app I won't have to use that anymore.
App look and feel has significantly improved in recent releases. With exception of being able to create a buy-write(call+stock) spread in combo viewer, there really isn't much more that can be improved on.
I wish the platform was better After playing with competitors trading platform this pretty much looks outdated but still OK to use, it's ashame really because IB TWS is one of the few brokers with positive reviews, I'm really struggling with your demo account on my tablet and phone, I'm always on the move so a pc isn't convenient for me, please improve your interface, your trading platform needs a makeover, your main menu is loaded with too much information, try to make buying and selling a bit easier with a single click.
Charts Is it time to expand the chart time frame? Would be nice to scroll charts to the left and see further back in time. Also, can you add a weekly and monthly time frame? Currently having to use competitors app in conjunction with tws for these features.
Good App Keeps on getting better. A good app from a great broker. Gets the job done! Thx!!!
Excellent app The best feature is that the app goes into readonly mode and let's you view your portfolio without re entering the 2 factor code. Very well thought out.
Major improvement IB made improvements addressing many former concerns. This app is much better, but can still use some refinements.
Could you please add the crosshair lines back?
This version seems not to allow the display of both volume and other TA. Prior to this update, I could display both.
Help When I group complex position legs, it doesnt show me the P&L of my position as a whole. It used to work but suddenly stopped. Please help me as I am only able to trade using my phone!
Please fix When i add an options spread to my watch list i.e. a debit put spread, it calls it a bear put spread and all is well and I purchase it. However after i purchase it when navigating to portfolio it shows me short a bull put spread. Trying to view this position as short a bull put spread and close it is insanely confusing!!! Going to close it from the watchlist is the cure but please fix this! Otherwise still love the app,loving the updates.. would like to see ability to do combos/pairs on futures .
You can't sort by all columns shown in portfolio view. Login sometimes takes more than 5 seconds. Easy to buy and sell. Possible to set lots of alerts. Saxo Bank and IG just a notch better.
If you have an account with interactive brokers, this app is really comprehensive. I have found everything I need to access all of my trading info so far.
Best Mobile Trading App! You guys are on fire! You are continually improving an already great application . Really like the new interface. I like this app better than etrade and td ameritrade mobile apps. Good job IB developers!
Futures - stops don't work outside RTH When I open a bracket order on futures (es, eur), both brackets are RTH only and cannot be changed to outside RTH (neither in mobile app nor in TWS). Very unpleasant to find your stop not being executed, please fix.
Where's the spread options in the menu? This app is worthless until I can trade covered calls without doing it manually. I have to use the web trader on my phone and that's also terrible. Please add all available trading options to the mobile trader.
When can support google finger print?
Works great Lots of improvements on usability and features. Works excellent on all my phones.
Signed in? Now out Constantly signs me out, I have to use my key to sign in every few minutes if my phone so much as locks.
So confused Wish they had better explanation for this
New update had connectivity issues. Followed up with IB support who sent me a fix which shows good customer service and a willingness to improve their product and listen to feedback. For that reason changed from 1 star to 4 stars. Once colour scheme option is released it will also be better. They should add more order types and allow alerts based on price and time to execute similar to TWS desktop platform.
With the latest update P&L takes ages to be displayed. You can't sort by all columns shown in portfolio view. You can't add columns to portfolio view (e.g. P/E or ROE or a customised sum/fraction based on numbers from latest 10Q/10K statement). Possible to set lots of alerts. Good news flow. Saxo Bank and IG just a notch better.
DON'T use IB for mobile trading! They have a terrible authentication app (IB Key) that stops working from time to time. Forget about their low fees and market access. NOTHING matters if one cannot access his own account! GO FOR ANOTHER SHOP. (This comment will stay 3 months after a stable fix being pushed)
Main functions stopped working Was able to login with a demo account at first but every time I tried to make a test purchase of stock the app would disconnect me. Now after a couple days of that issue I can't even login. I just get an error telling me to re-login. Seems unstable and is not encouraging me to open an account with IB.
Not liking the new update I really like interactive brokers overall, and I liked their app. But the new update is not good. I notice if I try to set a order late at night it just get stuck and says "please wait". Also P&L takes forever to update. I have to have the app open for at least 2 minutes before it updates.
Bad update Please bring back the dark title bar. The current color theme hurts my eyes so much :(. It's really great if app has dark color theme.
Unable to log in using IB Key Unable to log in in spite of correct password and PIN. The IB Key app displays authentication succeeded but the IB TWS app says Incorrect security code. Pls fix asap.
Latest update has some issues The latest update has changed the color palette to be less readable, also the daily Profit / Loss information is not functioning.
Was working great but after the new update the daily PNL almost always show a value of 0. Didn't happen with the older version.
Since new update stuck "contacting nearest server step" post login screen
No option greeks on chain I can only see option greeks after I add a contract to my watch list. Can greeks be added to the chain?
Please provide a mechanism to select your background color.
Cannot log in
IOS app is much better For some reason, this is much different than the IOS app. On IOS, you can get a chart of all strike values for options for a specific date and easily change the date by sweeping left or right. On android, you have to fill in an order ticket for a specific option so you can't really tell if you are wasting money on a low volume option trying to bridge an excessively large gap between bid and ask. Also, the IOS app shows gains/losses since purchase vs daily p&l on Android.
Meh Its no thinkorswim. Does the job. I don't know who programmed their bar time start/end. In most places of the world 1 hour bars start at 1 hour not 30 minutes. Very annoying. When selecting bars to view ohlc data the cursor is very imprecise.
Last update... Won't allow displaying both stochastic and volume simultaneously now. 5 stars if this gets fixed.
P&L on trade grid Why there is no p&l column available on the trade grid? Have to click on each to find out the details
Doesn't work on any mobile platform - Android or iOS, smartphone or tablet UPDATE (July 18, 2016): The issue did get fixed shortly after I wrote the original review with the complaint about the Hi/Lo prices not showing.

This definitely increases my confidence in the platform and the company because it shows they are paying attention to their customers' issues. Thank you.
