Robinhood a truly free app that allows the user to open an account and trade for free. Robinhood was introduced to the market not long ago and continues to gain in popularity.

The company makes money by keep the interest earned on uninvested money. This may seem unfair but for what the user is getting in return, it seems pretty fair.
