I’m already using an ISA on Android - can I be of any help? Or do you just need newbies?

You can still test the account switching bit (to be clear, this is switching between your Basic account & ISA in the app, not transferring your stocks) so feel free to register :slight_smile:

Ah yeah! I have a cash ISA with Nationwide so cannot open one :frowning:

You can have a cash ISA and a stocks and shares ISA in the same year. You just can’t have more than one of each kind each year or go over the savings allowance

So this would be a stocks and shares ISA?

I dunno whether it is worth opening up a S&S ISA, I wont be dealing with anything over £2k

(Zain) #8

Yep, it’s an S&S ISA. You use it to buy stocks and shares afterall!

Probably not worth it now, but there’s no drawback to having it, then as you continue to contribute over the years, it’ll all be tax sheltered and you won’t have any hassle converting to an ISA when you need to.

Unless you already use up your £20k allocation with other ISAs?

(Mark L) #9

True. But the £3 per month is a put off.

We will see.

If you registered then you’ll have just received an email in-app message to let you know that you can start testing now :boom:

(Sam Landsman) #11

When might we expect them if we didn’t get in the beta? :disappointed_relieved:

(Alex Sherwood) #12

It depends how well the testing goes & whether we find any bugs that need fixing :crossed_fingers:

It’s worth registering on the form now anyway, just in case we add more testers :eyes:

My email’s kinda slow getting to me…:snail:

My bad, it was an in-app message. You should get it as soon as you open the app.

I’ve opened an ISA now, switching seems to work OK. Top up hasn’t gone in yet so I can’t buy anything.

When I switch from Basic to ISA the graphs still shows the total from Basic. Is that a Total portfolio or should it change? I can’t tell because there’s no money in the ISA at the moment

The actual figure correctly shows £0

(Alex Sherwood) #16

It should change.

(Dave Smith) #17

It doesn’t, maybe it’s just because there is nothing in the ISA?

(Alex Sherwood) #18

In that case the total portfolio value for your ISA should show as £0.

(Jon) #19

Same with mine, shows portfolio of 0 but the graph from my basic account.

The number on screen is correct, It’s just the graph that isn’t changing
