    I am struggling to get the API to work on zTrader or Accexio apps running on my BlackBerry Passport BB10. Can you advise if I can work? If not what other way can I trade on my mobile as your site is too intensive for mobile trading.

    Dear user, you can find all necessary information about CEX.IO trade API on the following page: https://cex.io/api
    As for the mobile version of our site, I am glad to inform that we are working on it. Mobile version should be present in future.
    Also I would like to note that usage of any non official applications may be unsafe, so you fully undertake the risks when choosing this option.
