I saw the video of Kite new app, it was really nice but I still don’t get it why they didn’t come up to resolve the glitch which is the only reason I left zerodha long back. Recently I heard lot of complaints there saying that old app was better and zerodha released an old kite and now old kite disappeared. Don’t know what’s going on there.
