Charles Schwab Launches All-New Version of On Investing® App for the iPad®

Charles Schwab today launched an enhanced On Investing app for the iPad®-- the latest example of the firm’s commitment to provide insightful, actionable and sharable investing and personal finance information in the various places people want to receive it. In addition to articles from Schwab’s popular On Investing magazine, investors can now get Schwab’s latest research, expert perspectives and investment guidance all in one place and at no cost. The new app also includes customizable tools that allow investors to save favorites, make annotations, and share content via email or social networks, all right on the iPad.

“We know that investors want expert, actionable insights, and they want the ability to quickly and easily apply those insights to their investment decisions, even when they are on the go,” said Jonathan Craig, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Charles Schwab. “Our goal was to create a financial publication app that informs investors and allows them to share content, but we also wanted to provide a space for people to collect ideas and create reminders, so they can then take appropriate action toward reaching their financial goals.”

Tablets are quickly becoming investors’ device of preference for reading, doing research, watching videos and sharing content. Schwab research shows that in addition to consuming and sharing content, investors want a customizable experience that delivers investment ideas and guidance with the ability to quickly and easily take action.

The enhanced On Investing app for iPad aims to meet these needs by allowing investors to read new articles across a range of investing topics, access Schwab experts’ lists of top picks for mutual funds and ETFs, and review Schwab’s outlook on equity sector performance to help manage and adjust their portfolios. They can save and annotate relevant articles, videos and items of interest, as well as share ideas, opinions and articles. Investors can also arrange and organize their saved items within their personal collection space, create reminders and follow checklists to stay on top of their next steps.

Once investors are ready to take action, the On Investing app provides seamless access to Schwab Mobile Bank and Brokerage apps, which allow clients to deposit checks remotely, transfer balances between Schwab Bank and Schwab brokerage accounts, place trades in brokerage accounts, and pay bills using Schwab Bank Bill Pay™ on their mobile devices. Clients can view balances and account activity for Schwab Bank and brokerage accounts, Schwab Global Accounts, OptionsXpress balances, Schwab 529 College Savings Plans, and Schwab-administered 401(k) and stock option plans. Schwab mobile apps also allow clients to tap into market information with real-time access to quotes, charts and watch lists. The On Investing app complements Schwab’s current mobile offering by providing convenient access to information investors need to make informed decisions about their finances.

The On Investing app is available here.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
