First of all, we'd like to thank Ethan and all guys @myfxbook for the tribune they offered us.

We recently released fxtraq, a free Android app dedicated to myfxbook. This app leverages myfxbook API and gives you access to usefull informations. Features include access to your accounts overview (incl. open trades, pending orders, graph and account trade history), access to the community outlook and even a live cross quotation.

Feel free to review, use and share this app! As it's still beta software, we greatly value your feedback. You can download the app from the official Google Market here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.ooboqoo.fxtraq

Very Nice.
Is it possible to do any local caching to make the app a little more snappy?
Probably a big ask.

Well, first we thought caching was a nonsense as what we expect when we use the app is to always get fresh datas. We then realized that we could cache data for the current session to avoid reloading the same datas again and again when browsing from one account to another one (or going back to an account you just checked).

Imagine you start the app and connect to myfxbook.com if needed. The app engine updates your account list. You touch an account, its details are refreshed on the go (ie: you're waiting for datas). Go back to the app home, touch the same account again: it's updated once again (ie: you're waiting for the same datas once again). This process can be improved. We'll try to implement some kind of caching for that typical usecase. As we imagine one of the future release, we think we could use a 'session' cache that will be filled with requests results on the go and flushed once you exit the app. That mean you'll still have to wait for the account list to refresh and for each account details to refresh; but only once in a session. Another optional feature could be to 'not fush the cache on exit' which could lead to display the latest available data while loading fresh ones in background.

As the beta 2 will mostly deal with look & feel but no new feature, this one is planned to be implemented in beta 3.

Nice work!

I use it and really love it.

I have just a bug to report:

In the order history list (after clicking on the chart), i noticed that the orders aren't well sorted. The 2012 closed orders are sorted before december 2011 orders..


It would be truly magical to have a widget that displays the informations of one selected account directly. In one eye shot you could see, for example, the current status of an account (without entering in the app)
It's not a revolutionnary stuff but i know it's a lot of work... Just an idea that would be truly amazing for me

But great work indeed!!!!

Many thanks

Hi Hervé,

We're really proud to ear that you like our app, thank u :)

Of course, we already noticed the freakin' date sorting bug and we'll surely release a beta 2.5 soon to correct at least this one. We're working quite hard on beta 3 despite our overbooked schedules (we're not full time app-makers... yet), and we'd like to release at least a version a month. We might add a widget 'for fun' as it's not our primary goal, anyway, we'll try to make something functionnal and somewhat useful.

Thanks for feeding us with new features requests: we like to code by design :p

Hi ooboqoo,

You're welcome!

Nice! I am delighted at this news! ;-)

I understand that the widget isn't your primary objective. It's normal.
But if one day you work on it, i have another request:
It would be a nice thing if a notification appears when the balance of the account change (means that one or many order were closed - balance account changed). :-)

Many thanks to take time to reading my requests!

Have a great day

Hervé

This widget idea seems more and more interesting. We'll look at.
By the way, beta 2.5 is out, it should be available in few minutes from the market. No more date sorting bug!

Hi ooboqoo,

I noticed a new bug in the order history:
Ok, now the order is well date-sorted but not time sorted!

I think that is a bug related to AM and PM (because the order where i see this error closed at 3:22 PM and it's listed before an order closed at 7:45 AM).

Hope my comments will help you to improve this great app!
