    I know many people criticize the native Stocks app., but I find it useful. What I really want though is a Scottrade App. so I can sign on to my account, view my account value, positions, order status, etc.

    Also, although I've heard many complaints about the Bank of America app, I like the idea of it. Being a loyal Wells Fargo customer, I would like to see a Wells Fargo app to view my account balances, transfer funds, etc.

    Anyone know if either of these companies are in the process of developing an iPhone/iPod Touch app?

    I've got zero knowledge about it, but I've GOT to believe they are working on something. I've got istockmanager, which is the tdameritrade app, and it's pretty freakin' sweet.

    heeee, rumors. such banking apps should be developed by the owner, Scottrade or Wells Fargo. Others can't acces its private and secure databse. Okay?

    I do not see Scottrade doing that, not really what they are about. There is a supported TDAmeritrade app out there now, maybe worth a look.

    I'm confused by your post. Obviously the apps would be developed by the company themselves (or a 3rd party who was hired by the company to make it). I wasn't suggesting that Joe Blow off the street should (or could) make an app for Scottrade or Wells Fargo. Not only would there be privacy and security barriers to that, but think of the patent and trademark infringement implications.

    I'm just curious if anyone has heard anything about whether or not these specific companies had any plans to develop an app.

    I'd love to see a Scottrade app so I could trade on the fly, but I doubt they'd take time to develop one unless their competitors did it and it became popular among traders. I wouldn't expect it any time soon.

    Again, I have to believe this will come eventually. The tdameritrade app was done by a third party guy who worked with ameritrade, and again, it's pretty sweet. I don't understand why a company WOULDN'T do this. The information it gives me and the things it allows me to do are available through Safari anyway, it's just easier with a dedicated app. This falls under the umbrella of delivering more than you have to in order to keep customers happy and to attract new customers. I think those are things that are quite important to most businesses.

    istockmanager is the single most used app on my iphone. i'm surprised that other brokerages hasn't come out with their own software, especially etrade, since they already made a software for the blackberry.... i'd say just pay $2 more a trade and switch to ameritrade!

    There is already a Wells Fargo app on the app store. Look under the finance section, free apps. It is #3 on the list I believe.

    Scottrade released its App

    While looking through my RSS feed today I noticed a tweet that said Scottrade uploaded its app to the Droid and Blackberry market. On a hunch I just checked out the App store on my iPhone and there it was. I downloaded it and so far its pretty cool.

    Ok i know this is an old thread, so forgive me for bringing it back to life. Just wanted to see if anyone has been using the Scottrade app and if they like it. I am going to be opening a low cost broker account and right now i am torn between Etrade and Scottrade.
