I’ve just flicked on the beta of the new desktop webapp and it looks to be taking a huge step backwards.
I am pretty surprised to see the blown up UI and removal of features. It is pretty awkward to call this a feature, rather than a basic necessity - but how could a tabular view of your financial securities be removed?
The new app can not conveniently (or at all?) show you across your positions:
- Your buy price
- Quantity of shares held
- Purchase date/time
Typically you would expect desktop apps doing the opposite - taking advantage of larger screen real estate and better I/O. But here we can see it moving in parity to the mobile app?
Making new orders is still clunky and many clicks, the charting is still the same and needs many clicks to setup to any pre-configured settings for anything meaningful.
The desktop app is essentially giving me the mobile app resized for my huge desktop monitor?
