    Still testing these forex iphone and ipod apps out. The easy-forex application is the better designed in my opinion (easier to flip around and get chart information and stay on top of your trades), but for power users the Dukascopy application will probably be the best choice. Annoyingly, though, the demo account on Dukas runs out after a while. The easy-forex one just lets you play and play and play. This fx app is worth having even if you don’t trade with these guys. Where are all the Android forex apps???

    Would have to agree with your easyforex choice. They have done a nice job of balancing the amount of info you get with the ease of use. I don´t want to do all of my trading on the iphone, I just need something to keep me up to speed and with the ability to ammend my positions if I need to. This app fits the bill.

    I downloadad the Dukascopy app- have to say i am pretty impressed. The only problem i have, is that you have to deposit with wire transfer- no CC or web wallet option available

    The Easyforex app is great- thks for the tip..although they could narrow their spreads a little. But on balance, i have stuck with them as I love trading on my iPhone and this is the best app I have found so far- reall easy charting. you just flip the phone on its side for the detail

    I have been using the FXCM iphone app on my new iphone5. There were a few problems with it initially, but they seem to have ironed them out with new updates- just download the latest version from the App Store. I just use it to keep an eye on my trades- it does the job fine.
