Sn-Appy Review: Robinhood trading app

Finance: Robinhood - Free stock trading

(iTunes only)


A free stock trading app to stop paying up to US$10 commission fee for every finance trade.

 What they claim to do:

  • Allows people to buy and sell stocks for free!  


Store ratings:

Google Play: N/A

iTunes: 4.5 (In fact it is listed as on of the top apps of the year on itunes)


Exicon's Comment:


  • Nice layout dashboard to monitor your shares
  • Easy steps to trade
  • Its free!
  • We love these functions:-
    • Real-time market data with notifications
    • Authenticate securely with Touch ID or PIN code 
  • User friendly and nice design



  • Only available on iOS
  • Customer service needs improving - causing some serious pain for some folks
  • The amount of time between a transaction and getting the money transfered can a few days


Very popular with some passionate fans who are even suggesting upgrades. And people also seem to be willing to put up with some of the teething problems being experienced as they love the experience.

Love it.
