Ratings and Reviews
Just my opinion
Great app works well no issues there, please fix Face ID for Apple I have to enter password in all the time STAKE and Spaceship use Face ID for fast log in. Other than that great platform for entry level investors. Maybe future give us breakdown of when dividends get paid so we know when to expect or option to reinvest or take dividends to bank account maybe an idea. If any changes made I’d go back to 5 stars any day for you.
Love the app so far.
Additional Monthly fees
To use this app you have to create a Commonwealth account which they charge an additional $4 per month account keeping fee. They don’t waive this for app users/investors or provide the ability to link to your own bank accounts. Just a gimmick to get people to open bank accounts rather than a worthwhile investment option. Not worth it unless they waive the fee.
Update: I managed to get it to work with the CommSec CDIA account which is advertised as being free, so have changed my review. (Hopefully not false advertising). The app looks quite nice & I found it quite easy to place my first trade. $2 per trade seems much more reasonable then $10+.
Developer Response ,
Hi Pruesta, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback.
You can use your existing CBA transaction account or set up a new one. Account keeping fees can be waived if you meet certain criteria. Many of these are fee free, you can find out more here:
Update: Updated to reflect that criteria must be met for fee waivers.
Brilliant initiative making investing simple
CommSec Pocket provides an easy, cheap way to start investing. The app is easy to use and makes the whole process simple. Aimed at getting people started which is often the hardest part.
I would have preferred to be able to set a limit price but to simplify the process I can see why this was excluded. Note that you will receive a new HIN number once set up. As an existing commsec user I would have preferred to combine with my existing.
Generally I think this app and idea is great. I’ll be recommending it to anyone who will listen
