This release includes several option chains enhancements, the ability to submit an order by sliding, support for Apple's 3D touch and some improvement to our recently released dark color theme.
Several bug fixes included.
You can now speak commands to IBot on TWS for Mobile if your phone has voice capability. Simply tap the microphone icon to the right of the IBot text entry field and speak your command, for example say "Show me the last price for apple." Tap the large microphone icon when you have completed the command. It appears in the text field. If the command is accurate, hit the Send icon, otherwise edit the command or delete it and try again. You'll notice another new clock icon. Tap this icon to get a list of your most recent commands, and tap a command to re-use it. Note that IBot is only available with iOS release 10 or higher.
IBot is our text-based interface to TWS designed to help you complete key trading tasks - like creating orders, viewing charts, getting quote details and seeing key account values - without having to navigate elsewhere.
To use IBot on IB TWS for Mobile, log in and open the Main menu by tapping the "More" icon (three horizontal lines) along the bottom of the app. Tap "IBot - type to trade" and enter text in the entry field, for example "Chart 6 months of aapl" and tap the "send" icon to submit the command. Once your command is submitted, you'll quickly receive IBot's response.
Alternatively, use your device’s voice command to enter text. Simply click the small microphone icon next to the entry field and speak your command, for example "Quote apple." Tap the large microphone when you’re done and then tap the "send" icon to submit the command.
If you need help, you can ask for it! For example, you might want to ask "Give me help submitting orders" or "Help with quotes."
To find out more about IBot see the IBot Feature in Focus page. This feature is only available with iOS version 10 or higher.
The Tab Bar shows page icons along the bottom of the TWS for Mobile application. Simply click an icon to access that page. Edit the icons displayed in the tab bar by clicking the "More" icon on the far right of the tab bar and then clicking Edit in the top right corner.
The portfolio page for TWS for Mobile iPhone now supports the display for partitions within your account, including Account Partitions and also portfolio strategies that you created in TWS for Desktop using the Portfolio Builder tool. We also squashed several small bugs.
Now you can track your complex, multi-leg combination orders in your portfolio the same way you entered them -- as a unit! Use the "expand" feature from a complex position to see all legs that comprise the complex position.
Additionally, the TWS for Mobile Contract Details page has been redesigned for the iPhone 6 Plus to more efficiently use the extra screen real estate.
Also, we squashed several small bugs in this release.
