Don’t trust any analyst until you do your research
Ever wonder why analysts are full of buy recommendations only handful of hold recommendations and virtually never tell you when to sell? For so long I relied on the Wall Street Journal, IBD or CNBC and then I realized that they are all giving me partial facts. That’s where TipRanks comes in
If I see a call by an analyst posted on social media or in the news the first thing I do is go to this app and check out everything about the analyst, his previous recommendations for the Stock and her overall success rate weighed against an index. Just because someone has a 60% return rate many times when measured against an index its only single digits. I can do that with this app.
I can see the anayst scores compared to his or her peers. I can also see what other recommendations they have made recently and finally I can see if they are in line or out of line with their peers on this call.
I would never trust what I read until I verified with my own research and this is the tool I use
I can easily justify $10 a month for this App.
The ability to see analyst ratings, follow analysts, see Price Targets and see which stocks are ‘on the move; is a perfect tool for a swing trader like myself.
My only recommendation: Try integrating more analysts into the system. Sometimes a stock has no analyst ratings and other times the analyst hasn’t posted anything in 10-15 days. Other than that I like it a lot.
Fundamentally good app, poor design
I paid the monthly fee for access to analyst targets. It’s well worth it to catch a wide variety of analysis targets besides what my broker posts. BUT I would say this app isn’t clean, very buggy. It loads old tickers on startup, then refreshes to my actual list. If the interface was more clean as well as some additional data it would be a nice one stop shop. Perhaps a ground to rebuild would be worth the investment as I can imagine numerous subscribers would be attracted to this app. It’s unique but not clean especially for a paid app as in-app purchases are what make this work downloading. Standalone it would be very disappointing in comparison to your brokers provided application.
App got so many bugs
This comment is pretty much same as everybody else terrible. Most of the buttons don’t perform the functions that it suppose to. I don’t know why there is a $30 charge a month. They should pay us $100 a month to test it, not to take money from us to annoy us
Great start to an awesome site
The app is a great start with tremendous upside. It runs smoothly and didn’t notice any bugs. The app is only
about a year old so I’m sure as with any reputable business the app will be improved upon. Just look at the support in these reviews, they are very responsive. Great start!

great trading/investing app! Very detailed and organized app that helps me and others with ideas as well as tanking my portfolio with others. I rate it a 4 star. It works well and runs well on the IPhone 6 which I am using. It tended to crash a few times but other then that it worked great. This app has lots of potential.

Paid the $10 and still can’t access anything. It keeps telling me to upgrade. I want my money back.
I have finally found what I've been looking for in a trading/investing app! It's a very detailed and organized app that helped me with ideas as well as ranking my portfolio amongst the other users. I have made it to 4 stars!!
Not worth it
Over priced, lot of features missing for example notifications for the activities and also data is very limited..they charge monthly premium for every feature but still they don’t provide much Information,..just unsubcribed
Love the website, hate the app
As an Ultimate subscriber of TipRanks I love what the company offers through their website. A broad range of features for $50/mo. means one good tip easily pays for a year or more of the service. The app, however, is quite disappointing. An inability to even use it in landscape view demonstrates just how lacking it is. One needs a clean, efficient way to screen through all the data the website offers, but in an optimized-for-the-ipad layout. Please work fast to get us a real iPad app!!
Stay away for now

What a terrible app. Numerous glitches and bugs. Some of them kind of comic: click on equity X and you will get data on equity Y. Can you get X’s data by clicking Y? - sure can. Hilarious. Can an equity suddenly disappear from your portfolio? Sure can! It’s magic! Navigation and display is sometimes counter intuitive, but that’s me. Here is where it gets non excusable: if you follow your portfolio on tip ranks app be prepared to get a false data regarding your gains/losses. Embarrassing. Beware and stick to their website.
RESPONSE TO RESPONSE: yes, I do have the latest version. One thing seems to have been resolved: when I click on a stock symbol in my portfolio, I actually get the info on that stock.
Other things are still a major drawback for me:
A persons gain/loss is based on the date added to the list, and not on the purchase price!!! Why?
How do you add the cost basis for stocks?
Wow, been waiting for you guys to release this app for ages and somehow managed to missed it (for 4 months!). For starters, 5 stars just for making it and letting me successfully login to my account. Cheers.
What a terrible app design
The website is excellent, but the app is an embarrassment. It does not even support landscape view on iPad. It has a tiny amount of information compared to the website, and it’s UI is limited and confusing. It’s clearly a simple phone app poorly ported to iPad. If you like tipranks, just use the website via Safari instead. I guess it should be obvious when the App Store screenshots are little advertisements instead of actual screenshots of the app; a dead giveaway that they aren’t excited about showing off the actual app.
Landscape Mode Missing
By rdb tester
Just loading positions but already disappointed by lack of support for landscape mode!
No iPad Landscape view?
By Cact kid
I would really like to use the app but are use my iPad most of the time in landscape view and don’t find it useful that the app only works in a portrait position.
By med student dad
The app has tremendous potential, however, it has a number of bugs that need to be fixed.
I look forward to the next version.
