LONDON, February 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- City Index (http://www.cityindex.co.uk/), a global leader in spread betting and contracts for difference, launched its first live spread betting and CFD trading app for iPhone(TM) in 2009. Since then, consumer reaction and a huge rise in mobile trading suggest that the City Trading application has been well-received.
In order to keep up with the growing market of smart phone users, City Index re-launched the app across a number of other platforms, including Android, Blackberry, Windows and Java. Uses appear to have developed a real hunger for mobile spread betting (http://www.cityindex.co.uk/spread-betting/ ). The reviews accompanying the app speak for themselves:
- "Finally City Index is on Android." - "Fast, comprehensive and well designed spread betting app. Have been waiting a while for City Index to develop this and not disappointed." - "Brilliant."
City Index Market Strategist Joshua Raymond believes that the application's success is down to the greater freedom of movement it affords: "Giving spread bettors the ability to trade whenever they want and wherever they are is completely where we feel the industry is going. No longer are you restricted to trading CFDs or making spread bets in front of the computer."
