Easy and concise App is very friendly to new users. Yes you pay higher commissions here but if you're like me and learning you probably aren't making a crazy amount of day trades so no problem. I don't mind paying a bit more when I get a reliable platform and I'm only executing swing trades or even longer positions.
It's a neat concept, but unless you just want some quick info this kind of thing is best suited to the desktop. Plus, the interface is a little hard to navigate, and a lot of menu options and entries are off the edge of the screen, meaning that there are things this app can do that you can't see unless you stumble upon them. It's okay, but it could be great with some adjustments. I wouldn't do any trading through this app.
Instead of adding more useless junk, why don't you guys concentrate on speeding up page loading? Very slow to upload new info. Screen hangs up. Have to close app and restart. This started after last major Sept. update. No problems with my home wifi or 4G phone.
It works great, but.... Every time I re-open the app it says "No network connection. Reconnecting..." The only way not to get this error is to completely close/exit the app, which is a big pain. Would have given 4 or 5 stars if not for this huge UI issue.
Needs work Crashes too often. Doesn't color candlesticks correctly - fills body based on open vs close instead of the standard previous close vs close. (Causing errors that lose me money.) Window vs android vs iPod have unneeded differences. Watchlists not shared between windows, android and windows prophet charts, so you have enter them multiple times.
As a trader i find this app lacking in many areas when compared to the desktop program. I think it could be improved in several important areas. That said i can still use it follow stocks i own/watch and buy and sell stocks.
Optimizations for a better, faster, stronger, thinkorswim Mobile experience. More to come.
Peace, love, and happy trading
