It’s a big enough challenge to bring this from the desktop to the handset, but we want to add even more value. So we also leverage relationships with premium providers like StockTwits to bring best-of-breed functionality to our mobile platform.

OANDA’s latest update to its popular iPhone trading app integrates price alert functionality and StockTwits social commentary on currency pairs and forex markets. This new release is available for free download from the Apple iTunes store.
“Most of our customers use their mobile devices for trading and they expect the same rich functionality they get from our online trading platform,” said Tony Savor, Chief Technology Office at OANDA. “It’s a big enough challenge to bring this from the desktop to the handset, but we want to add even more value. So we also leverage relationships with premium providers like StockTwits to bring best-of-breed functionality to our mobile platform.”
StockTwits is a leading communications platform for the financial community and the creator of the $(TICKER) tag for identifying and following investing ideas and information across the web. OANDA plans to extend the StockTwits social media functionality to its other mobile apps and trading platforms in the future.
