Many people asked MetaQuotes to develop a mobile version of Metatrader 4 for Iphone. Unfortunately, the mobile version of MT4 is only available for the Windows Mobile platform ( Smartphones and Pocket PC's, look for the download links in "MT downloads" sidebar ). However the good news is that Metatrader 5 will be available for Iphone and Google Android platforms! It was recently confirmed by MetaQuotes staff in this thread. The development of the Iphone app is progressing, and it will be probably released first. Bad news is that there wont be a version anymore for the Windows Mobile platfrom, Windows Phone 7 will be also avoided. I think this is because of the bad reputation Microsoft got with the countless bugs of Windows Mobile 6 and the drastic changes in code in the 7th version.

Metatrader 5 for Iphone The Metatrader 5 Iphone app will feature a uniform design that will seamlessly fit in the Iphone interface. The app is developed from scratch and will be 100% native to the Iphone OS. Also, it will be different from the interface in Metatrader 4 Windows Mobile. The release date is not known yet. If the mobile version of Metatrader 5 is one of the reasons you will buy a smartphone, this information will help you to decide what platform to buy. I personally like the Android OS.

If you want to use Metatrader 4 on your Iphone, you can use tools that create a remote connection to your desktop, where Metatrader 4 is running. For example, you can use the TeamViewer app for Iphone, it connects to any PC around the world and you can remotely control the PC as if you were sitting right in front of it. You can also seamlessly use iPhone to login directly to your PC running MT4 using the PC2ME app. With PC2Me you can remote control of your Windows PC, using your iPhone via the Safari browser. There is also a Iphone app that allows you to monitor your Metatrader 4 accounts using myfxbook.com's backend:

Metatrader 5 for IphoneActually, the remote connection to the desktop version of the Metatrader terminal is in some cases better than a mobile version of MT for the smartphone. On the smartphone you have always limited computing resources and not all features of the full version of Metatrader. For example, if you are using a expert advisor on your desktop, you can only control it via a remote connection. But if you want to quickly check the market quotes, the mobile version is better.

Iphone is great. But as a trader could't use the MT through iphone is a feeling of imperfect. That hold me to get my iphone, I don't want to carry 2 phones as the same time while i holding the potision.

It'd be more interesting to see an iPad MT4/MT5 application. Because trading via phone isn't very comfortable - I usually need to monitor a lot of windows, charts, analysis data, etc.

Strange decision. Probably many MT4 users just bought Windows Mobile phone, so they were able to use MT4 Mobile. Now they are left with nothing :( Please make MT5 Mobile platform independent - Web access. It's much easier to write Web application than to write software for so many devices. It's not only easier, but it will work with any device. Simple, fast, cheap solution that today everyone is using.
