Ratings and Reviews
Nice Looking App But Needs The Following Features...
I like the new design however in the updated app, when looking at the options chain, the price of the underlying stock is no longer always visible at the top of screen but is rather located in various places as you scroll down. Please make the stock price always visible no matter how far you scroll down the options chain as it was in the previous version. Also, it would be nice if we could see both calls and puts simultaneously as you can on other platforms such as Ameritrade. Finally, if there was a way to see the previous closing price for each option that would be helpful as well Thanks! Will update review when changes are made!

Hi! We really appreciate that you took the time to provide these suggestions--they will be sent to our team to make the app easier to use. Thank you.
Atrocious Option Platform
You guys deserve a 5 star rating for look, feel, free trades, more advanced orders than Robinhood.. but this app is flat out dangerous to trade options with. Prices are off, portfolio prices are off.. until you can figure out how to be a real broker, no one should trade options here. I sent a scathing email to the service dept with multiple images comparing ThinkOrSwim live prices in the time and sales window and the last price in my portfolio was $.60 off.. if you option trade... that’s.. that’s just beyond terrible. FIX THIS NOW.. I’d move all my money here if you can update option prices while looking at it, and update the last price shown in the portfolio.. how do you even launch a product and not update this for months?? Are you trying to steal people’s money?? FIX THIS PLEASE... your app could be the best so easily, and you could pull huge share from Robinhood by doing so...
UPDATE: moved from 1 star to 2 just on the fact the dev team responded to this review.. cmon! You can do this!

Thank you so much for your feedback. We apologize for the issue you experienced and will work with our data partners to address any issues quickly.
Nice effort, but some issues
I’ve been a Firstrade customer for almost three years. I appreciate that Firstrade is working to improve the app. I was fine with the previous app and it worked well for me usually. With the new app, I’ve had two issues. First, there’s no info on the daily change in the S & P and the Dow. The previous app version had it on the home screen. The second issue is that not all the daily change values in my equities are accurate. The percentage change is correct, but the $ change is not. Hoping for continued updates to this app to make it better. 👍🏼
