We are pleased to announce the long-awaited launch of our newest trading application, Alpari aTrader for Android. This mobile terminal provides MetaTrader 4 users full account access, including the ability to trade live, from anywhere that has 3G or wireless internet access. Additionally, the aTrader puts at your fingertips a host of other features you need to stay on top of the markets, including chart viewer, market news, MT4 mail and trading history.
The aTrader is designed for the Android operating system, currently the most popular OS in the world according to recent surveys, having now surpassed iOS from Apple, Symbian from Nokia and others. We aimed to make the mobile terminal as flexible as possible -- it can even be used on mini smartphones with low-resolution screens.
Realizing that there are hundreds of devices using the Android OS on the market, we decided to conduct additional open testing of the application, a process in which many of our clients participated. As a result, the release version of the aTrader works flawlessly on most devices. We thank all those who helped with the testing and look forward to your collaboration on subsequent versions, where we will be working to further expand the aTrader's capabilities.
The aTrader is now available for download from Android Market. Those users with OS 2.2 or higher will be able to automatically download updates.
Alpari aTrader for Android continues the line of new mobile terminals which we started earlier this year with the launch of applications for iPhone and iPad. We hope these applications for smartphone together with the new Alpari WebTrader web-based platform will give traders the added versatility they need to take their trading to the next level.
