Promising start

This app is a promising start. I hope it does well, but it’s got a bit of a way to go yet.

The main gap is that there doesn’t seem to be an ISA or SIPP account (I’ve read that these are coming). Unless you really just want to dabble on the stock market you’d probably be better paying into a pension fund, or setting up a stock and shares ISA.

The charges for the cheap-and-cheerful basic trades are competitive, and the idea of batching trades together to keep the costs down is a good one, but bear in mind that the prices can go up and down during the day - so you could end up paying 1 or 2 percent more (or less) than you expected.

You should also definitely do your own research. The ‘news’ seems to be a couple of weeks old. The Company Profile is really minimal and I’m not at all sure how reliable the ‘sentiment’ tab is. The ‘health’ tab gives an assessment of the company, but it’s too brief to be useful - I think you’d be better off looking on somewhere like Motley Fool. The ‘discover’ tab is a nice idea, but the result is a confused and confusing hodge-podge.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for review. Great to hear you are enjoying the app as it stands.
We have ISA's launching this year so you will be able to start saving and investing through these on dabbl.
We have a dabbl blog for quick reference information on companies and weekly killer stats to help orientate you with investing. However using other resources is always a good call.
We have recently updated the Discover section so we hope to have addressed your confusion.
Thanks and keep us posted

Seriously concerning

I have now used Dabbl to handle a (luckily) very small amount of investment for me for a couple of years. While I am a fan of the concept and the design of the app, and think the fees etc are fair, I am deeply concerned that the service and the business behind it appears to be so fragile.
The app has frequently experienced problems during my time using it, including at the moment where it just refuses to load my portfolio. Furthermore, for most of the last few months of 2019 there seemed to be a long and very public battle between Dabbl and its financial services regulator/provider, which resulted in confusing emails being sent from that 3rd party to Dabbl customers with little explanation. Dabbl really should have done things differently to avoid this and were really bad at explaining or reassuring me about what it all meant for me. I hope that a turnaround can be achieved pretty pronto!

Good now working

Firstly I’m actually a shareholder of Dabbl, so it’s possible I have a small bias. I did have a few fairly serious problems with the app originally, which led me to leave a 2 star review.

However, I was later contacted by Dabbl they managed to fix the issue very quickly on their side once they’d realised there was an issue (unfortunately a couple of months after they explained it was an iOS issue). The actual app itself is now working perfectly, no update required.

One star away for the initial irritation, but can’t fault the value of the subscription and dealing costs. Well worth exploring as an alternative to monthly share dealing options, or for small cheap trades.

Developer Response ,

So pleased your issue was resolved quickly and you were satisfied. Great to hear.
Hope you are still enjoying your free trades on dabbl.
