7. Did you develop the mobile app by yourselves?

Just as the website, the Android app was completely built from the ground up in order to match our technological standard as seen in the website. As mobile app was a new subject for us, it took us 1-2 months to experiment with different frameworks and finally decide. Then we started building the app, taking into account every metric that may affect performance – we’ve used multiple technologies and techniques to provide optimal performance to the user while having a feature rich and super useful app for forex traders.

Except for myself and my brother Pavel, we have 4 full-time developers to keep up with development and maintenance of the Myfxbook website.
