    I think my main question to that would be how would you short using an app in absence of a broker to accept your short?

    I don't really understand your question, as this is paper trading: there is no real money involved.

    Sorry sorry! I completely missed the paper bit haha! I don't know of any that allow shorting unfortunately! Only because only a smaller part of the real market are allowed to short and that it's much harder of course

    Yes, they do. The US shares are packed in a folder if you log in through a computer.
