KrakOn let's you view and trade all publicly available currencies in the following markets: XBT / ETH / USD / EUR / GBP / JPY / CAD.
With an intuitive and simple interface it allows you to place buy/sell market or limit orders, either with margin or without. No complicated screens, only what is most used on the go. I really want to keep it simple to support a good mobile experience, but are open to review any desires you can't seem to live without :)
THIS APP WAS PREVIOUSLY NAMED KRAKENFX
(Google disallowed it because it went against their 'impersonation' policy)
The TRADE tab can be unlocked for around 12 EUR (press 'Buy Trading!' to see your local price). I believe the price is worth it, as the trading form really simplifies placing orders. I ask you to try the app for some weeks and place your review here.
PLEASE understand this app is not responsible for the unreliable service of Kraken’s exchange API, which sometimes times out or gives errors!! (You will mostly see “An unknown server error occurred.”) So when you rate this app, please rate it for it’s User eXperience, and not the failures to communicate with their flaky servers.
- It’s not possible to spend your last bit of currency to place a BUY order, as Kraken will incur a cost for that trade, which can not be calculated in advance. So leave at least a fraction in your Kraken wallet when you place an order.
- Like mentioned before: errors will be thrown, depending on the reliability of Kraken’s API service. So some days it will be smooth, other moments more errors will occur. This app has no influence on that!
- Setting a “Profit/Loss price” price in a “limit” order without leverage will place a conditional “market” order to either “stop loss” or “take profit”. However, if leverage is set, the closing order will be of type “limit” and with the same leverage, to “close” the position.
- It is only possible to “close” previously opened positions by creating a new opposing “limit” order (with leverage!) of the same amount (or higher, if you want to take the remainder into an opposing postion).
- the app uses localised settings, so punctuation in numbers should reflect your preference. Unfortunately it’s not very easy to configure your locale on Android.
- No profile or personal information necessary to use the app.
- Only general anonymous user behaviour is tracked to see where we can improve on the app :)
- No backend server is used for storage of anything. We do send application logs to Sentry, but any sensitive information is stripped before sending from device. So nothing personal or secret is saved outside of your device. We do strongly recommend to always create an api key with only the necessary rights. If you created a key that allows trading in the app, and somebody compromises your key, they can make stupid order placements on your behalf. (But they would need physical access to your device for quite some time, so very unlikely.)
