ActForex has just announced the launch of ActDroid, a mobile trading solution for Android-supported Smartphones. The application enables live and demo users to place a trade via their Android mobiles. ActDroid is already available for the Android market. I have checked the application with the HTC Desire. From my point of view, the application has a user-friendly user and intuitive functionality for its users. The application is responsive to each click and orders are executed on time. The application uses the Droid technology very well and provides a dynamic and exciting user experience.
Mobile phone applications have become part of the Brokers standard offering. The main question is about the growth for Brokers business that these applications offer, and whether it is just a trend or if there is also financial logic behind it. I assume there must be financial logic behind it, since the market share of smartphones is growing rapidly and the market is accessible at any time on these devices.
