Great app, but there are still 2 bugs
The app is incredibly solid with responsive developers who are always improving the stability, interface, and complement of features. HOWEVER, THERE ARE STILL TWO BUGS: In the watchlist, if a futures contract is listed for a specific expiration, then the graph will show live orders and the days order history will display underneath the graph. However, if the futures contract is set with the “infinity” sign indicating that it will update to the next expiration date once it expires, then live orders, active orders, or past orders will NOT show on the graph or beneath it. If I login to one of my three iPads, then my login credentials are rejected on the other iPads even if my identity is confirmed with Apple’s camera ID system. I am not permitted to login automatically even for “read only access” of watch lists. I have to retype my login credentials and use 2 factor authentication with my iPhone. This problem does not seem to occur if I login to my iPhone and then back to an iPad, however. This is a great app that continually evolves positively.
The paper mode for personal education is key for user comfort level. I’ve traded on many mobile apps before, and this is by far the most inclusive app I’ve ever used. Order entry is very smooth, and intuitive. Charts are easily expandable and widen with pinch/reverse motion. The range of chart studies have been greatly improved. Option strategies for different combination is easily achieved. Account information is detailed, along with quick order entry from portfolio page.
The app is fine, but the IB customer service can be challenging at times. I called IB about their updated app. I told them I wanted to change the tabs at the bottom of the screen. The rep had no idea how to do that. After my conversation with the rep it was nail after 8 PM Eastern time and nobody could help me. So I googled how to change the tabs at the bottom of the app and after doing a little research and reading I figured out how to do it on my own.
