Studying for my 65

I am studying for my series 65 and wanted an app that I could quickly look up financial terms that were not obviously clear to me, many of the terms in the financial world I don’t understand as it is a new field. Although I have not had the app long it has been a great help to understand terms that are unclear to most outside the financial world (put,call,debenture etc.) and the fact that it was free to download and search terms is the reason I chose it over Oxford and a few other “name” brands. Thank you!

Used to be Fantastic

Removing previous review and writing another.

I like the app. There is a lot of information inside it. The app is a good reference for those who are into the financial field, or if you need to learn about something that pertains to finance.

That being said, I had a problem with seeing an ad after having paid for the upgrade. I’m not sure if I had, possibly, deleted the app and had not restored my previous purchase before seeing the ad. But I’m not 100% sure.

In any case, the developers tried to help by sending me a request for more information. Unfortunately, there was no further information I was able to provide except to let them know what version of software I was using.

In conclusion, I’m going to monitor the app for now and see what happens. Then I will add any pertinent information to this review.

Thank you.

Must Have Financial App

If you are a regular person who is investing in the market, this app is a "must have!" It is super impressive how it not only defines ANY financial term but it cross references to other terms that are related so you get a full perspective and understanding of what you are learning. I anticipate this tool to be with me for a very long time as I continue to learn everything about financial markets! Thank you so much. I have been looking for this support for a long time!
