Fidelity launches Windows Phone app
3 May 2013
The Fidelity Windows Phone 8 brokerage app from Fidelity Investments is now free to access for Windows Phone users.
Available through the Windows Phone Store, the app provides access to watch lists, account information and real-time quotes. It enables users to manage investments on the go and trade stocks, exchange-traded funds, mutual funds and options.
Using Windows Phone Live Tiles, users can pin individual securities to their Start Screen, so they can see live updates automatically. All investors can view news, market information and quotes, regardless of whether or not they are Fidelity customers.
All of these features enable users to stay updated on their investments with just a glance at their Start Screen and trade on the go
Microsoft “Fidelity’s ongoing mobile strategy is to be there for investors on the platforms and services they use every day,” said Sean Belka, senior vice president of Fidelity Labs. “We heard from Windows Phone users that they wanted a nimble brokerage app from Fidelity to be able to take action in today’s dynamic markets, and we believe the Windows Phone 8 platform fills that need and provides a unique experience in the mobile space.”
The app provides insightful market information, providing summary quotes from the Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ Composite Index, Russell 3000 Growth Index and the S&P 500 Index, as well as news from leading providers such as Reuters and MarketWatch.
Investors can stay up to date on their accounts, as well as view a quote and navigate to trade search for an option chain, add the symbol to their watch list or pin it to the phone’s home screen.
“Apps come to life on Windows Phone thanks to features like Live Tiles and resizable tiles,” said Todd Brix, general manager of Windows Phone Apps at Microsoft. “Fidelity takes advantage of all of these features and more to enable users to stay updated on their investments with just a glance at their Start Screen and trade on the go.”
