I’ve used this app for a few years and it’s great. One thing I wish was better was the sub penny charts. They don’t display the candlesticks correctly. I’d also add an alphabetized option when editing your watch lists. Thanks!
Does not work if network is spotty or slow 1/5
By Can't stand stupid people
Generally, great app. However last couple versions do not work if network is slow or spotty. App simply freezes and eventually crashes. I hope it will be fixed soon
Super easy interface. No troubles at all, wondering why others have had difficulties. A++
Watch App’s Numbers INCORRECT 1/5
Wow. Dangerous. The watch face complication reports incorrect numbers.
App won't update 1/5
Can't login unless I update. App won't update= terrible upgrade.
Performance metrics lacking worse than etch a sketch 2/5
By Sextant navigator
Although trading is a snap with this app, Forget using metrics like value growth over time, a 4 year old would do better with an etch a sketch
No Face ID no Touch ID 1/5
By im a pretty pony
Did you really take out both these
Every body loves having features dropped
App is unreliable 1/5
I would say 6 out of 10 times I try to use the app it doesn’t work. There’s lots of glitches. It tells me my user name or password is invalid but it works if I went on the web to login. I would have to uninstall and reinstall it. Even sometimes that didn’t work. If it’s not that it says there’s no internet connection. My phone is connected, I’m able to use all my other apps and safari. This app is a waste of time.
Can you list what’s being updated?
Touch ID issues 1/5
With the latest version, Touch ID no longer works to authenticate.
Please fix asap
Crap broker crappier app 1/5
By Abhijeet aps
This app = mobile shortcut to E-Trade website.
Authentication breaks with each update needs to be redone.
Cannot trade after this patch 1/5
As a loyal client of E*TRADE, I have earned a serious amount thru their app. However, I ungraded the app this morning before the market opened and then I could no longer log into my account neither do any trade.
On the other side, I immediately tried to login the website on my laptop. What a disappointment! The website tells me it’s ‘BUSY’ right now so can’t fulfill my request.
Okay, the end of story is that I lost over $50k since I can’t sell some of my stocks at my desired position.
By Day Trader 90210
Love the app but every time I draw anything from a trend line to Fib levels, they disappear as though they were never there.
App crashing 3/5
I have to repeatedly delete and reinstall the app since the app crashes every time I try to log in. Maybe it’s bc I’m on iOS 11 beta but idk...
I love the charts.
Better, Data issues now... 1/5
I’m looking at my watchlist at 5:45 AM EST and the data from yesterday is missing! HUGE issue! No daily or weekly candles! UNACCEPTABLE.
The new headers are a waste of space. Full screen the chart please.
Works like a charm 5/5
By Omega Lord
FaceID works as billed! Great addition.
Great app for managing funds 5/5
I use this app frequently. It is an easy platform to navigate and I feel my money is secure.
Fast, Easy and Responsive 5/5
Very Functional and easy to use :)
E*TRADE app rocks !!! 5/5
App is easy to use and has many important feature that makes trading and research simple.
Easy to use 5/5
By A mobile dev
Face ID works like a charm
Fantastic app for my finances 5/5
I have used this app for some time now and i have found it to be very user friendly. Has all the information that you need to make right investment choices. Good research materials. It is quiet stable and simple to use. Definitely recommend as E*Trade has got it right.
Excellent app 👍🏻 5/5
Great ease of use !!!
Updates are terrible. 1/5
App is crashing, not loading and glitching, also please bring back the keep me logged in option...used to be s great app now it’s unusable. O stars
Forced upgrades stink 1/5
Can't use the app unless I upgrade. App Store says I have the latest version. Thanks for nothing E*TRADE.
Does what I need it to 4/5
**Oct 25, 2017** Message Center no longer works. It errors and suggests calling them.
**Original** Which is organize my watchlists, set price alerts, and view some charts here and there. I’ve used the message feature to contact E*Trade support and it works nicely (would like a push notification my message has been responded to).I think the OptionsHouse app is a lot better for opening/closing positions, but it isn’t bad. If you have access to E*Trade Pro, lines drawn on the charts there can be viewed in this app.
Great app 4/5
I love the app, but it isn’t 100% user friendly. It takes getting used to it to know how to do what I have needed to do. It can do it all, but isn’t quite intuitive, so can take a while to figure out.
Seriously difficult to do obvious functions for the end user 1/5
By Sammy tease
There are a few things you want to see how much you made overall you want a button for buy a button for sell. The basic functions are so difficult to find how about buy stocks sell stocks. It’s totally awful and by far the worst iPhone application I’ve ever seen or imagined. I’d like to add money to my account and buy more stocks but I can’t figure out even how to add more money. There is an app out there that does this the right way and that is Robinhood the best on the market but you cannot buy all stock types which brought me to E*TRADE. I truly hate it I wish I could buy all stock types on robinhood.
Worse Update ever 1/5
Stop forcing your users to update. Your updates are becoming worse, I have to login every few mins due to the option of being logged out.
Zero stars for this update.
Bring back "keep logged in" feature
Upgrade Won't Load for iPad 1/5
Forced into option of 1. Exit or 2. Upgrade. I'd like upgrade. Won't load. 😑
Apple Watch app just getting worse 1/5
By Remorseful buyer
I like the iPhone app fine, but the Apple Watch app is heading in the wrong direction. On the iPhone app you can set the default page; in my case I like Portfolio so I can see the overall picture. At first this choice was mirrored on the Apple Watch. Then, the watch began to ignore this, and showed me what the markets were doing. I could scroll over to see what my 2 stocks were doing but no overall picture of the portfolio view. I tried reinstalling the Apple Watch app a dozen times; no dice. Now when I try to swipe the watch app it just crashes. I have reluctantly removed the E*TRADE app from the watch. As far as I am concerned E*TRADE doesn’t really offer an Apple Watch app. Very frustrating,
Forced update eliminating pin login is awful 1/5
Forces you to use biometry login, which NEVER works. Forcing me to type 20+ digit password every-time I login. Seriously considering switching my brokerage account to Fidelity. My Roth and 401k are already through Fidelity, E*TRADE's mobile platform has kept me here, and this makes it infuriating to use.
crap upgrade 1/5
Very good...getting better 3/5
Touch ID support is not consistent. Sometimes works and sometimes does not. Otherwise 4 star.
3 stars 4/5
I absolutely love E*TRADE services. In fact I have multiple IRA, Personal, Futures, and Options Accounts and have been trading for a few years. I would recommend E*TRADE to anyone that wants to trade from the experienced to the beginner. There are many advanced tools as well as Resources to teach yourself. I however do not like the Apple Watch App.... it will crash almost every time I try to start it and I can not see my portfolio earnings or live days Gains/loses. I would like to be able to see all or whichever account portfolio I chose by clicking on the Watch app. I have multiple accounts and would like the ease of monitoring my trades at any time simply by looking at the Watch. If it could be integrated in I would like the option to buy and sell on the Apple Series 3 Watch app. I would also like to chose what my watch app home screen is.. aka account position not markets. This would allow me to use my phone minimally or if I wanted to do more research. I do however enjoy the ease and simplicity yet toughness of the iPhone app. The E*TRADE IPhone app has been a handy tool for years. Good job on that. The IPhone app is my go to for trades. I simply don’t need to use the website unless I’m trading options or doing research.
Terrible. Caught in a dysfunctional loop
Upgrade will not even download 1/5
What the heck is going on??? I’ve been trying to get this to upgrade on my iPhone and it won’t go through. Took something that I used almost everyday to something crap that has me thinking of taking my business elsewhere.
They ruined it with this update. No more PIN 1/5
I don’t have fingerprints saved to my phone and never will and E*TRADE took out the PIN login and replaced it with fingerprint scan. So now literally every time I go to check my stocks I have to type in my 20+ digit secure password and it is insanely annoying. Thanks guys.
Too many forced updates. 2/5
By Tom Timson
Why the heck do I have to update this app every. Single. Time. I open it? Can’t you people just write a stable API?
Did not think use cases through 1/5
I don't often write reviews, but this update is so egregiously bad, I just had to put down some thoughts.
So the dev team realized that "keep me logged in" is bad security practice. Understood and I agree. But now there is no passcode for the app. They have mistakenly assumed that when Apple Touch ID is enabled for the account, the only person with Touch ID for the iOS device is the account holder.
Here is a use case (putting aside any use of the "Keep me logged in" feature): my wife and child have Touch ID access to an iPad where I have Touch ID access to my E*Trade app, but I don't worry about them making $527485 pink sheet purchases on my retirement account by randomly touching the screen because I have a passcode enabled, and app purchases disabled for it. I have to put in a E*Trade passcode—different from the device passcode so my wife can't access it—before using Touch ID to log in.
Suddenly the app auto-updates to this mess. Now there is no passcode. Baby wants to buy hundreds of options expiring tomorrow? Touch ID! Wife wants to criticize my trading practices? Touch ID!
A little more far-fetched: a mugger renders you unconscious and uses your finger to unlock your phone. He now has instant access to your E*Trade account.
The only real safe option now is to disable Touch ID for the app and type in the password every time.
The Lesson, Dear Reader: Extremely poorly thought out update. Bring back the E*Trade passcode!

App Crashes and others have less fees 1/5
The app gets worse after each upgrade, and now just crashes constantly.
Plus they removed keep me logged in.
Filter doesn’t work 3/5
I was trying to filter different risk and performance factors and the drop down doesn’t lay out all the different options.
Good App - Bad Asterisk 3/5
I generally like the app. It has occasional quirks, but mostly works for me.
The asterisk (*) in the name makes it hard to search for the app so I now have to find the icon rather than doing a quick text search. Annoying.
Removing "keep me logged in" a mistake 1/5
By Nate dePutter
Removing the "keep me logged in" feature removes much of this apps usefulness. No extra security is gained as a password is required to move any $. More pointless meddling from some mid-level security dude who wants to brag to his boss about how safe he made everything.
Serious problem 1/5
By Bad &$#%
Update today (10-4-17) won't allow log on with correct password. Immediately offers to reset password?
Found by deleting the app entirely and then reinstalling it the problem is cured.
Hardly use app since update. 2/5
E*Trade has decided I need to enter my password every single time I open the app. The result: I only use the app when I absolutely have to. Good thinking guys. That's very inconvenient.
Great app 5/5
Been using this app in conjunction with iOS touch feature to easily check and manage all of my ETrade accounts at will. If you have an ETrade account(s) you will like this app.
Does not work. Does not show my account or balances or portfolio and forget about using it to actually trade stocks. It also seems that any positive reviews are poorly contrived glowing remarks that are fake. I write this not to bash etrade but for them to actually see that this thing is broken. Completely broken.
Best app ever. Suggestions:) 5/5
In the charts when using the crosshairs, the open high low close volume window covers up the chart. It should have a X to get rid of it.
Can you add some options for studies in the portfolios view? RSI would be awesome.
Thanks and have a nice day.
By far the worst App 1/5
This is the worst app I have ever used. There are glitches from not loading your account to the functionality of switching between accounts not working. Also all the features won’t load regularly.
