You must be crazy thinking people will put up with such bad user experience with all the competition out there today. I cannot even evaluate the app since the signup process is ridiculous. No web interface signup, no OAUTH login, have to type in and remember password that is less secure than generated by lastpass (which is rejected). And after going through all this I still cannot login. Your UX team should be fired.

I can't even sign up, after filling out the form, I get to the password or make it past to the biometrics, which just fails and then it requests to start again.. so many attempts, still failing. Would be much better if this could be set at the bank as I have no idea if this will ever work and it's so tedious to use.

It's has been 24 hours and still cant get access to my shares. I wanted to exit on my positions yesterday and have already lost nearly $400. All customer service says is that they working on it. My recommendation is to find another trading platform as Shyft will only cause you losses when the app is in meltdown mode and there are no fix in sight.
