E*Trade Bringing Mobile Pro App to the iPhone?

E*Trade has long supported Blackberry users, with their Mobile Pro application, and sometime (hopefully) this year they’ll be adding iPhone support as well. After all E*Trade is seriously behind the times in supporting the iPhone, even Bank of America and Citi have apps already.

Now take this with a grain of salt, as it is pure speculation on my part, all I am basing this off of is a message I received from E*Trade in response to my inquires about an iPhone app.

“Thank you for your message regarding E*TRADE Mobile PRO… … We are currently developing a platform for iPhone users; however, a release date has not yet been established. We are constantly updating our website and adding features based on the feedback we receive from customers. …”

Hopefully the app will not only make it to market, but also include access to banking features, like Quick Transfer and Bill Pay.

E*Trade is raising their rates!

I just received an email from E*Trade, informing me that starting tomorrow they will be raising the interest rate on their Complete Savings accounts from 3.01% to 3.15%! Not a huge jump, but when you consider that the Fed just cut interest rates by 0.25% last week and most banks lower their interest rates when that happens, this is definitely good news.

Just thought I’d share the news.
