I like the app as a beginner investor, but as I started to learn more you see the limitations. Overall pretty functional except for buggy graphs and unresponsive ui on occasions. I would like to see more features. Information and news could be highlighted better as well as upgrading the graph accuracy so we can lock in gains and losses more effectively.

Gets me all the way to adding a bank/card and then won't send the email for me to confirm my address. I've been trying to fix this app for 2 hours but no matter what solution I try 2 minutes later there is another error message or restriction. It's like trying to jump 10 foot hurdles just to set up the thing that let's you set up the thing!

DO NOT USE! It might be easy to get started, but once you want to withdraw your funds none of the options on the app work. I went around in circles repeatedly entering my bank information trying to withdraw without a fee and to no avail. No customer service number or email texting chat. I tried to withdraw via debit card--the card saved on file for deposits--and it repeatedly failed for no reason. I have THOUSANDS of dollars on this app and seemingly no way to withdraw them and ZERO assistance.
