Pretty good app but it has some issues.

I like this app a lot but there are a few things that make it unusable for me. First, whenever I open the app 50% of the time it actually lets me login and 50% of the time it says network connection error even after multiple attempts. Second, is in the recent update they took away the option to see how much I’ve made all time from a stock which is something that I really liked about the app before. Another thing I wish they didn't change in the update was the overall layout. I liked the layout before and now it seems like its less user friendly. Unless it gets some kind of new update I'm just going to switch over to E*TRADE.

After a couple updates this app has gotten ALOT better and I really like it now. It runs perfect now and I no longer have any problems. Changing my rating from 3 stars to 5 :)

So I’ve used almost every reputable trading app out there from E*Trade, Fidelity, Schwab, and others. Jan 2021 last year I decided to open an account with this company and downloaded the app. Soon after, I transferred over a few thousand dollars to try it out and see how I like it. After about a month or so I decided to transfer money back to my bank account, and that’s where the trouble starts!!! Giving them my DOB, SS#, Drivers License, and other identifying info from the beginning wasn’t good enough to be considered as a “verified customer” and Firstrade refused to give me my money back and blocked the ability to transfer back to the same bank account it came from !!! Firstrade then began to ask me for very personal and sensitive info like copies of my bank statements and other items!! FYI…. I’ve been trading for over 25 years and NEVER has any company ever asked me for those types of sensitive documents EVER !!! At that point, that’s when I figured out that this was “deliberate by design” to keep customers money longer. I ended up having to contact SEC, FINRA, Attorney General, and my local congressman for help !! Which I should’ve NEVER have had to do to begin with 😡 Only then did Firstrade fold and immediately contact me to return my money!! These people belong in jail !! 🤬🤬 You’ve ALL been warned!!!

The App for option trader

GREAT APP. The UI design is so intuitive and ease to use. Love the new horizontal scrolling design for position & watchlist screen, it’s now so convenient to view each column of data by scrolling left or right instead of switching screens. “Tapping bid & ask to add legs to basket” on option chain is brilliant and making complex options trading so much easier. I also love the new way of closing complex options positions. The app can list out all available combinations so that I can just pick the one I want to close. And the “Quick Edit” function is the best. I am the kind of option trader who need to edit complex open order couple times, this “Quick Edit” makes editing complex options open order effortless. However, I hope you guys can add IV, Greeks and Roll Forward feature for the option trading sooner than later.
