Redesigned iOS app from the #1 online broker,1 now with commission-free trades, raises the bar across the industry for mobile-first investing
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) today announced the relaunch of its award-winning E*TRADE Mobile app.1 Continuing its legacy of mobile innovation, the new iOS application delivers the comprehensive functionality investors and traders seek, now through a remarkably intuitive and engaging experience unrivaled by any in the industry. Enhancements include:
- A centralized account experience. Investors are served the functionality that matters most to them. Now they can see all accounts in one place and have a customized experience for each of their unique account types. With nearly 50% of total E*TRADE logins coming from mobile apps, this is a critical channel to meet customers wherever they may be on their financial journey.
- Efficient navigation. The redesigned iOS app delivers an even faster, sleeker, and more intuitive experience. Similar features are grouped together in tabs, and in-focus features are prominently displayed, delivering a more efficient use of the screen. Key research functions are also easily accessible. And coming soon, investors can toggle between a light or dark theme.
- Trade in two taps. Today, customers can even more easily access the trade ticket from all screens with clear and concise directions, such as: Save Order, Preview, View Order Status, and Place Order. The mobile app is the second-most popular channel for customers to place trades, so it was paramount to make the experience seamless, with the ability to trade in as little as two taps.
“We listen deeply to our customers—from those investing in their first fund, to those executing options strategies—and there is one resounding theme,” said Alice Milligan, Chief Customer Officer at E*TRADE Financial. “They seek more than just a sleek and simple app—they need a sleek and simple app that helps them do everything they need to do in their financial lives, whether it’s banking, monitoring their account, placing a trade, or learning more about the markets. The mobile functionality we offer through this redesigned app is a cut above any in the industry, and when combined with our first-class customer service and $0 online equity commissions, it delivers an experience that cannot be beat.”
