Broker iPhone App Reviews

Updated Monday, July 5, 2010

Apple's iPhone has had a revolutionary impact on the cell phone market since its debut in 2007.  As of the second quarter of 2010, the wildly popular iPhone has sold just over 51 million units worldwide.  One of the most influential features of the iPhone is the app store, which allows users to quickly find, download and install third party applications onto their phone.  Smart online brokers have capitalized on this ever growing market by developing their own iPhone apps.  All of the broker apps are free to use and some are even built for limited usage by those without a brokerage account.  Some of the major features offered by most broker iPhone apps include:
  • Account balances and portfolio information
  • Market news
  • Watch lists
  • Stock trading
  • Options trading
  • Charts
  • Customizable alerts
As with the web based and desktop versions of broker applications, the broker iPhone apps vary greatly in quality.  So which broker iPhone app is the best?  There are a lot of choices but don't worry - we are here to help.  Click on the broker names below to access our full review for each platform.  All brokers apps were tested on the iPhone 3GS:
