Offical E*Trade Windows Phone app now available, let the trading begin
E*Trade Mobile for Windows Phone is now available over in the Windows Phone Store to help you manage all your stock accounts while you are on the go. The official app for E*Trade offers real-time streaming quotes, the ability to place stock trades and manage your E*Trade account all from your Windows Phone.
Even if you don't have an E*Trade account, the app doesn't look too shabby of an option to keep up with the financial markets.
E*Trade Mobile offers main pages that cover market activity, financial headlines, and account management. From the menu page you can tap into your E*Trade accounts, set stock alerts, view the various global financial markets, pull up individual stock quotes, access the app's settings and much more.
Individual stock quotes will highlight the price trends, chart the price history, and display any news on that particular stock. You can even pin that stock to your Start Screen to monitor the price changes.
All in all, the E*Trade Mobile app makes a very nice first impression and very useful for those with or without an E*Trade account.
E*Trade Mobile is a free app that you can snag here at (opens in new tab) the Windows Phone Store.

This is what people care about apps. If MS wants a bigger market share especially in the US they have to close the gap between us to android and iOS.
I'm waiting for this one !
Now we need a Verizon FiOS app. On the Verizon forums they said WP7 has too low marketshare... When the Lumia 900 came out and I asked them, they said they were "unsure"
BTW, the person that gave these answers was the then product mananger of FiOS TV. They are now Chief Product Officer for Verizon and Redbox.
I was excited to see ETrade released an app for WP, but I was disappointed once I went into it. There's next to 0 support for the banking side. All I can see is my overall balance in my accounts. I can't get into the transaction history or anything. No mobile check deposits, no bill pay or anything.
I know they're primarily a stock company, but this release was a disappointment for me.
It might be an official app, but it doesn't come anywhere close to the iOS and Android versions :(
