I really like this app. I especially like being able to read the analysts research PDFs in-app. Trading is simple, and the cnbc videos are informative. I agree with one reviewer, fingerprint login would be a nice perk. Update: I have none of the login issues others are having, nor do I have issues with real time streaming. For those complaining of the 30 minute max timeout, all you have to do is change the timeout setting on the website in account preferences, then those timeout options appear in the app.
Check Deposit crashes app - very inconvenient This started happening in October'2015 and continues to the most recent version (uninstalled and reinstalled today 6/26/16). The app loses its convenience when you cannot use your mobile phone camera to deposit a check and they have discontinued mailing in the physical check to deposit. Once you use a picture, the app crashes. Very disappointing, especially after many years as an etrade customer. This is on an LG V10.
Crashes constantly! The app would be great if I didn't have to log back in 1000x a day because it keeps crashing. Works fine as long as there's nothing else you want to do with your phone. Want to quickly check the weather? Do a quick Google search? Use your calculator? Check your calendar? Crash! Crash! Crash! This app will not play well with others. Note to techs... uninstall/reinstall WON'T FIX THIS.
I'm going to go elsewhere... Every update fixes one problem and causes three more. Now, whenever I log on, the app only stays open when I'm viewing it. If I answer a call, switch to a different app, and then immediately return, it says.... Sorry, your session has expired. Then, the task of punching in a password because Etrade app will NOT save password. Ridiculous.
Useful in place of computer. Updated regularly. Works well most of the time. Recent upgrade has problems. Have to press "back" a dozen times to quit. Log- ins requested multiple times. PLEASE FIX THE THE PROBLEM OF REAL TIME STREAMING NOT STAYING ON! Connection problems are also more regular. Makes it unworthy for trading sometimes. Some things do work well and I have used the app to place trades. Thanks etrade. Please address some of the sloppiness and you are at 5 stars.
Sign In I have an ameritrade account too. Ameritrade saves the password and user so you are always logged in if you prefer. Whenever you buy, sell or make any changes to your account, you enter a 4 digit pin. This is way more convenient than entering a password everytime you open the app.
