  • Somewhat limited Jul 2, 2019

    By RAE-72
    The IB app is okay - limited, but fine for keeping on eye on things if you’re on the move, and it’s improved a lot over the years. Some notes: 1. On my iPhone 7, the drop downs for modeling date and parameters (P&L, Greeks) for an option contract don’t work. They drop down but roll up immediately before I can select anything. Works fine on my iPad Pro. 2. Again in option contract modeling - allowing only 5%, 10% and 30% max moves is inconvenient when one is trading daily/ weekly contracts, especially close to expiration. Would like a to be able to chart at (say) 1% and 3% moves also. 3. Overall, options modeling is somewhat limited. Would like to be able to model complex positions in a less clunky way - probably not on the iPhone, but definitely on the iPad. 4. Adding a little more capability to charting (again on the iPad, rather than the iPhone) would be great... things like customizing colors/ line style for indicators, customizing background color, adding template capability (i.e. saving layouts), etc. Doesn’t need to become TradeStation - just upgrades for usability and appearance.

    The app is mostly good. It has a lot of information, and the layout is fairly intuitive, although it takes some practice. An annoyance is the buggy two factor authentication. Sometimes it doesn't come up. Weird that SSL isn't on by default. Also, the watchlists act very strangely. It would be nice if they just synced with your account's existing watchlists (i.e. didn't create phone-specific ones).

    Pretty good app, I dont have any of the problems that other users are ranting about. Some features are only contained in the webapp so the mobileApp renders the webApp inside the app if you want to use any of those. Ofcourse it would be easier to use if that wasn't the case, but its pretty easy to deal with. And trading itself works flawlessly with the mobileapp.

  • Does not play well with password managers Dec 28, 2019

    By purecharger
    I really like this app as a trading platform, but it is very frustrating to login with trading permissions. Firstly, it defaults to login without trading permissions and you are prompted to enter your password for trading or account management. Then the lack of compatibility with password managers flexes it’s ugly head. I use LastPass and the problem is twofold: launching lastpass from the app prompt does not display my IB entry I have to search for it, and after selecting my IB entry I’m returned to the app without the password populated and in fact the password prompt is gone. This means I have to switch to lastpass, find IB, copy the password then go back to IB, trigger the password prompt and paste the password. Overall it’s a frustrating, broken user experience.

  • Good update Apr 21, 2019

    By Emowilli
    Short Interest rate and Market Cap are no longer working on watchlist or portfolio. Please fix and also add % of IB shares short. Thanks for all the improvements in this version! 1. It does feel like charts are slower to load now? I realize there is more logic with adding trading features, but would like it a bit faster. 2. More ability to work columns in portfolio view 3. Better use of landscape on iPhone XS Max (is a lot of wasted space) 4. Better Multitasking, at least give 60 seconds before requiring to relog in. If I swipe to my password manager and then back I have to log in again and then re-navigate to the view I was on. 5. There are columns like MKT Value that are available in Portfolio view, but then only MKT Value % is available in watchlist. This wouldn’t matter as much if you could sort portfolio view. 7. Split screen support on IPad 8. When you click to Portfolio, it calculates your daily change, and then recalculates again. That initial calculation is often off by many thousands of dollars, giving me a heart attack on a daily basis. Please don’t display the daily calculations until they are accurate.

  • So many wrong calculations Aug 2, 2020

    By HunterKnight
    Almost every calculated value is routinely wrong. Daily P&L seems to randomly change every time I open the app (while markets are closed over the weekend). Options P&L graphs always show the result of the previous date selected, so if I want to see the potential P&L at expiation, I have to scroll all the way to the end, wait for it to load, *then* selected another date, such as the second-to-last date. The “Home” tab has very limited functionality, and the top graph includes deposits in the total growth, with no option to switch to the time/money weighted return % graphs easily accessible on the browser version. Finally, the performance outside of market hours is very poor; Options P&L graphs take several additional seconds to load, and the complete lack of access to the system on Friday evenings (Pacific time) is very inconvenient. These factors make it almost impossible for me to do research and prepare for the upcoming week when it is convenient for me to do so (over the weekend)

    The amount of time it takes to load the options available usually exceeds my login limit. Meaning I can't really do anything options related. Stocks work fine however you would think they would try to expedite trading information so users can make more transactions and they could make more money.

  • Portobello try another platforms app Dec 11, 2020

    By gagalady1990
    I have been using IBKR for a year. I can tell you that the portal and mobile app are horrible experiences. 1. The have developed it using cheap outsourced developers in Eastern Europe with little UX knowledge. 2. The security on the website and app require your WiFi connection to have a dedicated IP address to allow you to log in, and deducted IP is not available or expensive to get from your telco for home subscriptions, and is definitely not available in coffee shop WiFi networks. So basically you can access the site only from your office WiFi. 3. The interface is horrible and slow to load, and you are unable to categorize your stocks into portfolios, or to filter or sort stocks but more than a handful of parameters they have selected for you. 4. App freezes you out often so you need to log back in. 5. And more recently, the whole site has gone down and you couldn’t log in at all for several hours couple of days ago, and today, the portfolio page doesn’t even load when you log in.

    Unusable. I have tried to create and verify an account on multiple occasions. No success, can't get the app to work or the login email. No response from customer service. The owner goes on cnbc and complains that more people don't use his platform. It has to be because of the app and user friendliness. Waste of my time and effort

  • Great app, but there are still 2 bugs Aug 4, 2019

    By UltimaOnliner
    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.

  • Outstanding improvements Apr 1, 2018

    By Jade7125
    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.

  • Can’t log in to account Sep 24, 2018

    By Danny bg
    I have two different logins for two different accounts. They have to stay separate for a reason. I can only login to one account and the second kicks me out on the Face ID. I can’t even create a ticket because I can’t log in to my account. For some reasons messages stopped coming to my phone so I have to do the app authentication even if I want to log in from the website. Since I can’t login from the phone....I can’t log in from the website. See the issue? Basically have no way of logging into my account. *update. I figured out how to activate to security devices for two different accounts using the same smartphone.

    The app is almost perfect you just need to know how to use the futures it has . There is one thing after the last update the news feed has some problems with the saved searches. If this problem is solved this app is a extremely good. I am using it for months and I am very pleased and now with the news feed if fixed I will be in total pleasure using the app !

  • Customer support is 50/50. App could be more user-friendly Feb 6, 2021

    By Shahed08
    Customer support replies to my ticket sometimes, and other times, it’s left ignored for months. I even offered to pay for premium support for quicker response, and that wasn’t responded to. I guess that’s a sign their management no longer interested in improving. With that said, I had to be fair and add 2 stars because they currently have the lowest margin interest rate I can find (but not by much. M1 and Robinhood rates are close, so it’s not the difference maker). My hope is IBKR focuses on the future, which is mobile OS, ease of use for beginners, and customer support.

    Does the job but could have a cleaner interface. I appreciate all the info they've managed to fit in there but it is sometimes a bit cluttered. Occasionally the options quotes page takes a long time to load if at all. Not sure if this is due to the app itself or IBKR pulling the data. Either way it is annoying and needs to be fixed.

  • Good Execution of Trades But Lack of Mobile Features Nov 3, 2020

    By frontierninja
    I exclusively trade on mobile platforms and have found myself trading more and more on thinkorswim as I can roll over my options with a click of a button. TOS pre fills the fields and I make adjustments and execute my trades. Why can’t it be that simple instead of me entering the buy and sell portion all by hand. I would like to see Roll Position next to Close Positon when you go into the detail of the trade. It makes it easy for mobile platforms and reduces fat fingering. Please add and button to roll options. Please people I am getting so tired of this.

    With RSI and MACD both turned on, the MACD chart becomes to small to read! Some indicator lines can be hard to see in the dark mode. Also, functions that invoke a webpage (eg, report generation) are still missing a dark mode. Lastly, upon launching the app, the screen briefly turns white regardless of the display mode. Please fix these annoying issues.

    Aside from the low fees and rather simple trading interface, I can't say I am satisfied. The IB key security layer is a joke. My mobile is the primary device and yet I have to key in a response code for my login which can't be done without exiting the login and thus generating a new challenge. So I'm stuck in an endless loop. Already reached out to help desk via contact form but nobody replied.

  • Good platform but service is only for the very wealthy Jul 28, 2020

    By Trips P
    The platform provides great information accessibility but the overall service is geared towards an extremely wealthy customer. All ACH deposits are subject to 4 day hold which makes the platform useless for people that cannot afford wire fees. The customer service reps should not be allowed to see your balances because the low level of service and the “I’m better than you attitude” you get from the customer service reps when they find out you have a low account balance in their eyes is pretty amazing. If you have less than a 100k balance don’t bother with this broker unless you want their second tier customer service. Go to Fidelity or TD where they actually care about every customer.

  • The app is trash Sep 18, 2020

    By KNV365
    Having used several different brokerage apps, this one is at the bottom. Logging into the app is hit or miss, as it may take 30 seconds to receive the OTP & once I input it, it’s incorrect. The interface is ok but not intuitive & quite cumbersome. And what’s with the inaccurate P&L & way off bid/asks for stock options? I actually use Robinhood to get an idea for where the bid/ask spread actually is, so I can place the correct order. If I were to depend solely on IB’s bid/ask, I would be entering useless orders. And sometimes my order gets rejected for being too far above/below the market when actually that’s where the market is but they’re the one that’s way off. For what’s supposed to be such a prestigious brokerage, their app is second rate, at best. I’m too mobile to not depend upon a solid mobile trading platform & this doesn’t cut it. I’ll be moving my money elsewhere.

    The mobile app is pretty miserable. I don't rely on it for anything but a 2nd security layer for autentication for the desktop app. Even this is below expectations. For the past 2 months it hasn't taken me less than 10 minutes and a few trials to autenticate me and log on to the app. I can't think of worse performing app let alone financial. To add on the support overall by IB for a small/micro investor it is nonexistent - i haven't been able for the past 1.5 years to get through to the support
