The app is pretty comprehensive, although there is one big thing missing: true iPad support. Making the iOS version universal would be fanatastic, but as it is, traders who want to use this on iPad have to put up with the blocky, zoomed in window that Apple offers.
It is a shame, especially given the fact that the developer would essentially be doubling their audience by doing it. Aside from that, there is little missing here. Pivot points would be nice, but maybe I am just being picky, as there is actually a lot to like here.
With plenty of options, a nice user interface and full trading history, Meta trader 5 for iPhone is a very good and well rounded app, it is just a shame it isn’t universal. Overall, as a free app, this is well worth a try for experienced and budding traders on iPhone.
