Very Cool! 5/5
By Dj Contrast
Lots of fun, low risk, great customer service. Great product.
Love the app.. it's great
Good app 5/5
I started playing with some trading apps since Feb 2017, Robinhood stands out from others, It's giving me more freedom than other trading apps; I start out on free account first, now I'm a gold member paying $10 per month and totally hooked with this app.
I'm new to the trading world, learning it day by day, one thing I learned that is always set your trade options limit, once market price hit your limits it will sell it or buy it so you don't miss the chance to sell or buy, so far I really enjoyed trading on this app, trying to earn extra cash is always fun :)
Charged fees for no reason, you are better off going with something more legitimate such as Etrade.

Love the app...not as good as android 4/5
The android version has way better features...like being able to toggle between percent/price/total gain or loss etc.
But this app has made me lots of money so I'm happy!
The app is awsome I love the fact that I don't have to pay a trading fee . I think the app has its flaws like it límites traders in certain areas like ... day trading and the time it takes to make a trade and the graphs aren't that grate tbh
People only use it for the free trades. You can't trade while it lags like a semi truck during rush hour
Rate pestering 1/5
App will pop up a request for rating in the middle of using it. Again. Again. Again.
Great for beginners 4/5
Great for beginners trying to steadily build a portfolio piece by piece without being strangled by trade fees.
Would've given five stars but the app constantly ask me to give them a rating even though I already have.
Download this app 5/5
hey it's free and easy , I love this app because it's allows normal folks like me to trade stocks on the go .. how awesome is that
The best - free and simple 5/5
Free and simple is all I can ask for and Robinhood delivers. It's Betterment quality UI/UX.
Good. PDT bad. Otherwise good. Happy times
Customer Service is My Biggest Complaint 1/5
The GUI is nice, but missing key features and occasionally malfunctions. Customer service does not get back to you for a ridiculously long time. Trade execution times are the worst I’ve ever experienced (I have several brokers so I have a valid comparison). I’ve referred several people with my referral code and didn’t receive the free stock.
My biggest complaint is poor customer service. I have contacted Robinhood twice a week ago and have not heard back from them. One issue relates to banking, which you’d think would be a priority item. Plus, I actually pay for their Gold service, so I’m shocked customer service has not replied to me in a week. The only response I’ve heard so far is automated emails saying “We will be in touch soon” in the email header. One of the only other times I contacted support, I received a response that completely ignored my question (which you could tell was done on purpose because the support agent didn’t know the answer). The support agent just went on about something that I did not ask. I tried following up on this issue, but of course, I never received a response. They ask you to rate their customer service via email after you receive a response, which I stopped doing because there is never any follow up when your question was not answered, leading me to believe no one actually reads the ratings/responses.
Trade execution times are usually bad unless the volume is in the millions. This can lead to a high amount of slippage. Would not suggest using for momentum trading. Suitable for swing trades and long-term holds. It is a free app so you have to understand you may have some execution delay vs. brokers charging $4 a trade.
Overall the GUI is nice. I wish Robinhood would allow users to create multiple watchlists. I believe because my watchlist is long it slows the app down when it tries to pull current data on so many tickers at once. The day’s gain/loss is frequently wrong, I noticed sometimes it blends multiple days of stock activity for the current day. The actual portfolio balance has never been wrong though. I’ve had other app issues, but they have not repeated so they may have been patched, I excluded these issues from my review.
I’ve referred five people in total using my Robinhood app. The first time I referred someone, I had to contact support. Support promptly credited my account once I verified the usernames. The second time the referral worked automatically. However, since then, I referred three people with the referral link. I have not received the referral stock and either have they. One of my friends downloaded the app from my link right in front of me and signed up too. I don’t even feel like contacting support about this issue because I have two outstanding support requests that have been open a week. Needless to say, they don’t trust Robinhood at all and I don’t think they’ll be using it.
One suggestion I have about Robinhood is they need to have a website that can at least buy/sell stock if you can’t access an iOS or Android device to buy/sell a stock for some reason. I think they may be working on an online portal currently.
In summary, I’m not impressed. Focus on building prompt customer service and fixing flaws before trying to expand into other countries. I will most likely be canceling my Gold subscription.
Simple enough 4/5
Everything I didn't already I looked at videos on YouTube about. So , all around pretty cool.
No complaints 5/5
It does what it's supposed to and it really is free.
Good app 5/5
Easy and practical app, I like it !
I Never rate things 4/5
By Maveric tamer
This app is great for stock trading. All trades are free, gives good info and news about each stock. Only reason it's not a 5star, is because I don't believe you can Short stock on it. Also, the app does not reinvest your dividends. However I love it and recommend it.
Great app! 5/5
There are plenty of places to do free research. Not many places to do free trading! When it comes to saving on trading cost, this app is head and shoulders above the rest!
Great app that brings easy and free!
Love the platform! Robinhood saves you money. 4/5
By Just hang'n
Normally, anytime an investor would want to make a trade they would get hit with a transaction fee. Unless you have millions of dollars invested in a brokerage account there is no way to avoid these types of fees. Then there's Robinhood! The app is not perfect, but if you are looking to dabble in the stock market and try investing for the first time there is no better option. Even if you are a moderate or experienced trader, Robinhood has options for you. The one down side would have to be the long waiting time in-between transactions, but this only matters if you are a short-term trader. If you are in the short game, then Robinhood Gold will allow you to go nuts with as many short-term instantaneous trades as you want.
Brilliant App! 10/10 5/5
Title says it all! Not a single complaint, beautiful introduction to stock trading
Horrible application process 1/5
I have been waiting for months for approval sent them a picture of my social, they said I was approved but the engineering part is having difficulty, but then said I was denied! Horrible service!
Awesome with a hint of wondrous. 4/5
A great learning app for those who want to explore other financial options
Poor execution. Orders hang up and make you lose money on trades. No customer service. UsT is better!
New to investing. 3/5
So far very easy to use, almost seems too good to be true. I really hope this isn't a trick and for that I have to limit how much I put in to this. Happy to be investing! getting free stocks is such a good incentive to get others to get onboard
Awesome app 5/5

Good trading software! 5/5
By Michael Lezcano
MUST-HAVE APP! 5/5
This is a financial must have, especially if you have control issues (like I do... yikes!). I like to be able to track everything at all times, and Robinhood allows me to do that. I will say though, that unless you're putting in big money (which you really shouldn't off the bat), don't subscribe to Gold. It's not worth it.
Love this App!! 5/5
I treat this as a savings account and invest in low risk stocks and I'm making so much more money than I ever could on interest from a bank!
Great App For Trading!!! 5/5
Love the daily news feed.
This version is full of UI bugs with the watch list and graphs that don’t update on ios11.
I really enjoy trading with Robinhood. I've learned a lot over the last couple years and feel I'm improving slowly as an investor. Takes practice and with the no commission trading you can get that. I've learned to always use a limit on my buys and sells, and to set stops behind me, and lots of other things that experienced traders take for granted, but that I am just learning. And again, robinhood allows you to learn on small dollar amounts without putting your profits back into commissions. Believe it or not, it's actually fun. So far I think this year is going to be far better than last, and robinhood will continue to be my broker. The only things they don’t offer that I would wish for would be the ability to short and to trade options. Maybe in the future in gold?
Tally ho 4/5
Enjoy the fee free trades, and support folks are super. Use the app for trading only, graphics are rudimentary so analysis has to be done elsewhere.
I like it 5/5
You might also.
Apple Watch App Crashes 1/5
Unfortunately, the Apple Watch app has been crashing.
Great on phone useless on Watch. 3/5
I love the iPhone app.
Never been able to open the watch app. Constantly crashes on startup.
Be nice to have a decent stock app on the watch. This update on 10/15/17 didn’t fix it.
Fun way to make real $ 5/5
I love this app. Super easy to use and invest.
Gets the Job Done 5/5
Got into the stock market via this App. Love what it offers and does so far. Always recommend it to people that want to get into stocks
No much to say 5/5
If you are into the investment game this is your app. It's a free for all and you can be happy to see your money grow. The app is secure and have a great interface.
Needs to execute orders faster. 3/5
By APP MONSTUUR
If this can skip the animations when buying and selling to get in and out of trades faster and when placing stop loss orders and have limit orders at the same time and either one automatically cancel out when one fills without manually doing it one by one this app can be that much better! I know it’s commission free but we need some better tools or a website to trade from with some tools or they can use the technician app to place the trades. There’s other free tools out there that can merge with Robinhood to help make us active traders more successful.
Great app 5/5

So far so good 5/5
By Pizza party Friday
So far so good
UX failure that will lose you money 1/5
The UX designers of this app care so little about the market that they will force you into a nebulous “personalization” survey during the middle of trading hours. I missed an end of day buy cause of this, which is unacceptable. Closing my account as soon they let me, which is unclear from the UI (money has made it to the account, but unavailable for withdrawal)
Trust worthy 5/5
Very happy to say I can trust this app
Needs to be able to see percent equity on dashboard 5/5
Great app. I don’t know how they manage to have zero commission and still make a profit. Not for day traders, but definitely great for students and long term investors.
One feature I ask for is to be able to see a breakdown of your portfolio with a pie chart to better visualize your portfolio makeup.
