    "Yahoo Finance could be a lot better than it is right now, but it definitely does what it's supposed to do. If you need that stock information to be on hand and by-the-minute, then this app will do what you're looking for. That being said, I would like to see some improvements. Namely, a less cluttered interface and simpler navigation--after all, those seconds and minutes count when you're investing!"

    "Just getting into trading was a confusing adventure. I tried many of the free trade apps, sadly i could never find anything to invest in. Not knowing any stock symbol. Sure their are a few websites you can get the names of a stock and day old information. This app Investing.com gives me the ability to watch real time quotes. I was even able to make a list of stocks so that i could come back to get the information about the symbol i have interest in. Your also able to get heaps of up to date news and analysis. My favorite feature has to be the portfolio. Keeping tack and giving me the ability to see how my investments are doing through out the day."

    "I found this app to be a pretty good way of learning the basics of Forex trading but not much more. It's definitely more of a game than a teaching tool and there's some real important trading tools that are not represented here that someone in the real world would need to actually trade Forex. Still fun though, but if you want to go about it in the real world then you'd still have a lot to learn."

    "I recently decided to give the stock market a try as a new form of income. I am very good at math and understanding trends so I thought that I would be able to make money but after a few weeks with no luck, I turned to the app store to find an app that could help me trade. I found StockTwits after a search and could not be more thrilled with the results of this easy to use stock app. I can get up-to-date information about current trends and then go straight to my favorite brokers site through the app! I have already started to make money and I do not regret downloading and using this app at all. Try it out today!"

    "I have a friend who has been into Forex trading for a lot of years and he told me that this is what he's been looking for for a long time and that it would be useful for me as a stock trader. It looks like a winner and it relatively inexpensive. I have to try it out for a month or so before I can release the others and go with this one. But it does look promising tho."

    "Rofx.net claims to offer a forex robot service. The problem I have with this service is the lack of transparency. There is no mention of the strategy that this service utilizes and nothing that suggests that the development team has a reputation in this market. If I am investing my money I need more assurances and information in order to make an informed decision."

    "It's about time that someone made a trading app that works well on Android! I like the many features that you offer, and the interface is pretty straightforward. I also like that you have a wide array of asset class investments to choose from. What I don't like is having to call an #800 number to get a user ID and password! I read through the comments and saw someone complained about the level of security as being too high. I have to say I disagree; this is my money and I prefer that you not make it easy for someone else to tap into my account!"

    "Invstr seems to be a good app for beginning investors, but maybe not as much so for more experienced ones. It enables you to invest small amounts of money and helps you understand the fundamentals of what you are doing. Those with more experience might want an app that's more powerful or that offers more features or a greater level of control, in my opinion."
