That is if you find a gold mine, of course. If you don’t, you can withdraw at any time, no charge applied.
Second, on our list is an app that can be used for both Android and iOS. Before we go further, it’s important to realize that in mid-2017, OptionsHouse became a part of E*TRADE, which is next on our list.

6. Interactive Brokers
We’ll be honest with you right off the bat, their Android app is working, but some little features need to be straightened out. They provide so much relevant information to you, but when is it too much? In our review, it started to mess with readability, having that many numbers and letters on the screen. But we suppose that’s the way it functions, as other apps are no different. This is a trading online options app, and you need to see what’s happening right away in order not to lose your precious money. Other than those slight readability issues, it’s very, very good. You have full support for trading stocks and bonds, along with real-time streaming quotes and charts.

They promise success in few easy steps – Invest, Learn, Save. Looks simple, right? Well, it is.

Where investing is concerned, it’s the deal we know. You need minimally $5 to start investing into Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) and with their Smart-Save help, start accumulating money as the time goes. In the end, we loved the purple design, and we’re sure you will too.
Ahh, an app with a very interesting, yet logical name. You’d like your stocks to pile up over time and bring profit? That’s exactly what you’ll get.

10. Ally Mobile
We’ve saved a multifunctional app for the end. First of all, it’s very good-looking, sporting a pleasant purple-grey combination of colors. After that, it’s insanely functional, serving as both a banking app and an investment app all at once. You can access your bank account, deposit and withdraw money anywhere and anytime.
