eToro Introduces OpenBook Platform for iPad

eToro, the Cyprus-based FX broker, today announced the release of OpenBook for iPad, an app which allows users of the social Forex platform to trade on the go with the popular tablet device.
 
When I said that the app has just been released I was not quite honest with you, as the broker has been offering the eToro Openbook app for iOS-based devices, including the iPad, for quite some time. But the latest update to the service means that owners of the exquisite tablets can now make use of all functionalities of the mobile platform. 
 
This means that you can monitor what's happening with your wealth, how the open orders are doing, what's your account's balance and so on. Of course, you can communicate with other users of the network, which is a crucial feature of social FX platforms.
 
More importantly, owners of iPad tablets can finally copy traders from their devices. You simply click on the profile of the trader whose trades you'd like to copy and then you can set the parameters  for this copying.
 
 
 
Before making the decisive move, you can see some characteristics of the trader's performance thanks to a pop-up window – like the number of people who have invested in this trader's signals. The good thing is that on an iPad you can actually read stuff, instead of staring into the smaller screen of an iPhone, for example. Moreover, the chance of tapping on the wrong place on the screen is much lower with the iPad – by the way, that's the reason why Japanese sumo fighters prefer the iPad over other touch-based devices. 
 
On the downside, the eToro team is still making it hard for users of its mobile app to select traders to copy. I've already complained about this and asked for the People section to be available. The issue is that the iPad app allows you to select traders from the Live Feed which is a lengthy list of comments and posts from a bunch of people. If I'm looking for a particular trader, I have to go through this messy list, which is annoying. Hopefully a next update will make me happy.
 
All eToro's OpenBook fans who'd like to give the new app a try can download it for free here.
