iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
When it comes to financial applications and utilities for the iPhone, we have hardly spent more time with any one application than MetaTrader 4. This is for a number of reasons: Primarily, it happens to be one of the absolute best Forex trading titles available in the App Store. We’ve also had the good fortune to see it again and again, as its developers are continuously striving to add changes, refine its sticky points, and generally make it the best damn financial application we’ve ever seen.
Their latest round of revisions brings the app swinging all but beside perfection itself, and if you’re eager to see what’s new, you have only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
If you missed one of our previous reviews of MetaTrader 4, we’ll go ahead and fill you in on some of the functionality details. Essentially, the app allows you to access your Forex trading account on the go (almost every broker you can think of is supported here). This means you’re allowed to make trades, hawk your statistics and generally speaking trade it up even when your’e away from your desk.
It’s lovely stuff, and we’ll spare some of the grittier details this go around. Instead, we’re going to harp rather strongly on the analytical side of everything. Graphics have been given a notable boost this time around, and the end result is an Forex trading app that makes it unbelievably simple to see, at a glance or over a period of time, exactly what is happening to your portfolio.
The newly revamped graphs system (more on that in a second) is truly phenomenal, and the insights it affords you, the user, can hardly be understated. Truly, MetaTrader 4 is slowly becoming the most comprehensive Forex app out there.
Graphics and Design
We would give the developers a five star rating here, but we feel like it may yet be too soon: If their next update is anything like this bout of revisions, then we expect miracles. In other words, the aforementioned graph revisions are miles ahead of what the app was doing a year ago.
The improvements in usability, information quality, and layout are monumentally vast. The lines are tighter, the time frames are finally what they should be, and the graphs themselves are the clearest, purest possible. In other words, the developers have finally hit on an all star lineup that makes the app incalculably valuable.
And as with every other version of MetaTrader 4 to come before it, this one is still free. This makes the application a phenomenal steal, and if you’re not using it to do your Forex trading already, we highly suggest that you do so—If for no other reason than the sheer dedication the developers have shown the product throughout the years. With that, MetaTrader 4 gets our highest recommendation yet, and a whole lot of hat tipping.
MetaTrader 4 requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
