Desktop / web interface

Out of curiosity, are there any plans to develop a desktop/web version of Freetrade at some point?


Website access to your account
Why is there no web or desktop solution?
The latest on the rollout

I believe this is the latest from the team on this:

Not initially, we have already talked about it because it shouldn’t be too difficult to do once we have more resources available. We already have all the necessary APIs for the mobile apps anyway.

I’d use a desktop version if it was available. I might be old fashioned but I usually do my share dealing sat in front of a computer


Feature Requests (Open Wiki) :bulb:

While on Yahoo finance I noticed that I could place orders to IB account from there, that is done through
https://www.trade.it
I’m thinking of what is the benefit for brokerage
For me I would get real time quotes.

May be Freetrade could explore this, if it is too much for rolling out desktop version.

I think a website (web app) is the best solution for desktop, as it covers both web (unsupported devices), and desktops too, and serves as a backup in case there is a problem with the app.

Yeah a web site would make it available to everyone regardless of what device they use

I’ve voted for this. I’d much prefer to use the desktop version when it becomes available. I guess I just prefer a much bigger screen. There’s that feeling of certainty on my clicks for longer browsing. The app for me will just be for quick checking.

Doing a desktop version for sure should be a priority.After all this is peoples money and feels more serious in a way to do your investing on a computer/laptop.
I think now the new MacOS gives you the chance to move an app from an IOS appstore to a MacOS more easily and shouldnt be too hard for the developers to implement a MacOS version for start and then make one for Windows.
This way you can atleast cover certain % of the users for a rather short amount of time.

I don’t have an iPhone and when the Android app comes out it is very unlikely I will use it as I hate doing it on the phone. I want to be able to do it in my browser.

I mean apps are fine but much much rather have some solution on my mac.

Is there a problem with that ? os shall i get some iphone emulator ? :smiley:

Hello, I currently have access via the app, but I was hoping there would eventually be access via the Freetrade website, would this be an option in time?

I ask because it is easier to manage my portfolio on larger multiple screens with other apps open to help me make my decisions, I know its a mobile app, but other apps I have such as “JStock” work on mobile in the basic form and have a more complex app for the PC, This is just an idea I would like implemented with time, and thank you for the great work so far.

Hey Carl, this idea’s been suggested before so I’ve moved your post over to this topic, I hope that’s alright!

Thanks for sharing the extra details about how you’d use this, that’s really useful.
