OptionPosition+ Version 4.0
OptionPosition+ is a financial analysis App that estimates the value of a set of shares and put and call options for a particular stock. It allows the investor to explore various option hedging positions and create a portfolio that is sensitive to price and volatility fluctuations or that provides protection for various concerns. OptionPosition+ graphically illustrates the value of put protection, covered calls, call spreads, time spreads, delta neutral skew trades, iron condors, etc.. Examples of the use of OptionPosition to explore and display various hedging and speculative strategies are located at our website: www.OptionPosition.com.
OptionPosition+ comes with an initial one month subscription period that provides access to data on most stocks listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ and certain indexes (i.e. SPX, NDX, RUT, RUI). After this one month subscription period you may purchase an auto-renewing subscription through an In-App Purchase. (If you do not maintain a subscription you can only access stock and option data for AAPL.)

• Current subscription may not be cancelled during the active subscription period; however, you can manage your subscription and/or turn off auto-renewal by visiting your iTunes Account Settings after purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
Calls and Puts Progress Tracking
I use the tool mainly to track the progress of my AAPL Calls and Puts and in my analysis of when to roll the options forward. It suits my purposes just fine!
Excellent tool for reviewing position dynamics
This tool isn’t perfect, but its a hard problem to solve and this the best I have found so far for tracking real, live, multi-leg option positions. It’s really great to know that when I open a position, I can enter it here and easily test, in real time, anywhere I have my phone or an iPad, different trajectories of change in the value of the position based on time, underlying price and volatility. It has really helped me develop a more intuitive view of the dynamics of multi-leg option positions. Adding cloud support is a great plus to working across devices.
Also, outstanding support.
Used to be a good tool for predicting
Used to be a good tool for predicting portfolio value a few years ago. For the past two years the software has not functioned properly with my iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone X. There is a subscription price so one would expect the product to work as advertised. It was such a great product in the past that I have given the developers an opportunity to improve the product, by my continuing to pay the fees in hopes they will make changes before I dump it.
