Comdirect app

As more and more traders and investors use their smartphones for trading, it is increasingly important that brokers offer easy-to-use apps that can deliver the same services as desktop platforms.

In this article we'll check whether Comdirect's mobile app ticks all the boxes.

Overall, we rate the user-friendliness of the app as better than average.

Our main checklist for the Comdirect app

Let's start with the search functions. Although most brokers do OK in this area, there are some bad apples out there. For example, if you start typing 'Emerging markets', will the software find all the Emerging markets ETFs for you, even if their name doesn't start with 'emerging'? If you only ever traded US stocks and start typing 'Apple', will the AI show you the Apple stock or the obscure Irish stock Applegreen?

Comdirect could improve in this area, but it might be OK for general use.
