@MaxT, don’t worry you’re not coming across as negative, this is the right place to give your feedback! And I’m sure the MF team would rather know about these issues and be able to fix them, than have people put off by them.
It’s not entirely clear on the website, but if you scroll to the bottom you’ll see a link to switch to the UK site, I’ve put the UK link here as well:
Once you fill in your details and select how much you will add to your account on the app, you’ll be able to see what there is currently available to view. I don’t think you’re actually then under any obligation to transfer that money over then if you don’t want to, so you don’t have to pay up front if you see what I mean.
If you have a look at this topic on the forum you’ll be able to see what the app looks like, if you don’t want to have to put in your details. https://community.marketsflow.com/t/working-on-app-dashboard-charts-for-the-next-release/
If you want more info on how MarketsFlow does what it does, you’re probably best off speaking to @tom_mf further and he may be able to send you some of the documentation that was used in the recent crowdcube raise to give a bit more flavour. The app / opening an account won’t really give this to you as it is more of a dashboard.
With regards to the returns on a tenner in £ terms - yeah that’s very true, but I think the aim is to make MF and its strategy, methodology and technology accessible to everyone and to be the first movers to do so. So that if you don’t have an up front £250+ amount to invest, you can still access very good returns in percentage terms. Then every time you have a spare tenner you can invest it until you do have a sizeable pot and are making good £ returns as well as percentage returns
