Have to buy a new phone - the most important consideration is that it should allow seamless trading through IB.

Don't want to buy blackberry/iphone. It seems that mobileTWS for iphone work the best. Does anyone know if "mobileTWS for Android" also works fine and is comparable in performance to "mobileTWS for iphone"? How does "MobileTrader" compare to "mobileTWS for Android and iphone"? Thanks everyone.

Thanks for confirming it works, I think a mobile solution is an extremely important component of business continuity planning - a safety link - especially if one is out on the road or there is a sudden disconnect to dsl/cable, a reliable alternative is needed to manage trades in emergency situations.

I would suggest you better use the mobileTWS app a few times just to ensure familiarity with the app in case you need to use it someday urgently. Cheers.

No need to stress out over open positions when you have to move, like a doctor's appointment.

Sorry for the misunderstanding but I didn't want to imply that TWSmobile for iphone is not good. From what I have heard, it is the best mobile app available from IB.

I just don't want to buy an iphone because of multiple reasons - some ethical and some related to that it locks you into a telecom carrier. So, I wanted to ask if android TWS app is as good and stable as TWS app for iphone.
