You may love the stock market or hate it, but it’s out there and it’s worth tapping into.

And if you’ve got a handy iOS app to help you do it, so much the better.

The Robinhood app has surfaced for iOS, complete with zero commission for U.S. listed securities.

The app is designed to be intuitive to anyone who uses it. Drag your finger across interactive graphs to view historical share prices. Swipe left and right between stocks in your watchlist. Quickly tell when the markets are open and closed with simple color schemes. When you’re ready to purchase a stock, just swipe up to buy.


With your cash or margin account, you can purchase U.S. listed stocks and exchange-traded-funds by placing market and limit orders. Robinhood lets you build a personalized watch list, view market data in real-time and access detailed charts and graphs to help you make informed investment decisions.

Starting yesterday, the company began on-boarding thousands of people from the waitlist as quickly as possible, inviting them to set up their Robinhood account. Also, anyone may download Robinhood today and immediately begin building a watchlist, viewing market data, and tracking their position on the waitlist.

Robinhood is available for free on the App Store and requires a device running iOS 7.0 or later to install and run.

If you’ve had a chance to play with Robinhood and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
