Mailbox filters, as well as the ability to purchase the entire basket of structured products via Themes Trading are some of the novel functionalities.

Online financial services provider Swissquote Group Holding SA (SWX:SQN) has just announced the launch of a new and updated version of the Swissquote – Mobile Banking and Trading Solution for iOS devices.

The latest version of the solution (7.0) actually fuses Swissquote’s iPhone and iPad applications into one application, which is a good thing, as it prevents the usual confusion amid users on which app to set on their devices.

The novelties also include the ability to subscribe to the Lombard loan service from one’s account, as well as to refer a friend from the application. The company has also added mailbox filters.

There is an enhancement to the Themes Trading service too: traders are able to purchase the entire basket of structured products.

The last improvement is worth noting, as it underlines the continued efforts of Swissquote to bolster the Themes Trading service, as well as to swiftly make these improvements available in the mobile environment. Let’s recall that Themes Trading was initially launched in September 2015 and got available on iPhones in October 2015.

The company integrated the app with Apple Watch in the first half of 2015. Back then, it said that an increasing percentage of its transactions was executed via mobile apps, thus highlighting the business cause for pushing further into mobile tech development. The passion for fintech, especially with regards to Apple products, was displayed again about a year ago. In January 2016, Swissquote became the first Swiss bank to roll out an Apple TV application, offering continuous financial news coverage on television, showing key indices, main currency pairs and economic news.

Talking of improvements to the Swissquote – Mobile Banking and Trading Solution, we cannot skip mentioning version 6.2 of the application, which introduced Swissquote Pulse, the company’s social network, to users of iOS mobile devices. The network is still in beta and has yet to develop but is gathering a growing number of users.

Fans of fintech will also recall that Swissquote recently rolled out a Virtual Reality application.
