Schwab client for 30 years 5/5
Schwab has treated me right.
Banking: easy unless you need cash from them
Brokerage: SCHWAB has every thing you need. Whether you are a seasoned investor or total rookie. Their multiple sources for research is excellent. The search screening for stocks, mutual funds and ETFs is also excellent. Schwab makes it easy to do this DIY.
Lets face it: most investment councellors are just salesmen. They plug you into the same type stuff Schwab has... and rake a fee. Plus they arent going to watch it like you would.
There is a big advantage to keeping tabs on the market and rotating in and out of asset classes bi- annually.
Fees matter. Its worth noting that ALL of these zero trade fee brokers make a couple points from you on market orders.its not much really but If you are a stock trader utilize limit orders to maximize profits.
Great app and great support 5/5
By Retired nuclear engineer
For two first-time investors, app seems logical and powerful; tech support is prompt and first rate. Have never failed to get through promptly to support. No long slow phone tree, probably 1-2 minutes to talk to a person and resolve each issue. Outstanding!
Not able to find realized gains!! 1/5
By slim shaddyy
Very bad user experience.. after sold my stocks, I am unable to find my realized gains!!!
By Karol 2718
I love the app you check your shares and watch the movements inside the app!
Great app 5/5
By Silas Reznik
I’m pretty new to investing, so an easy layout is really important for me to understand the basics, which this definitely has. Has easy to understand graphs and charts while giving you a clear view of all your assets. Plus Charles schwab is cheap so you don’t have to put much in to get anything out!
Updated app not good. 1/5
Ver 10.1.0 freezes. I have to close the app and relogin. Frustrating. Wish i hadn’t “upgraded.”
Schwab is simply the best!!! 5/5
What’s not to like about Charles Schwab as a company of app? They are committed to helping you achieve your financial goals by taking less out of your pocket, as they aim to help everyone not just the pennies in the world. Can’t say enough good things about them. Can’t wait for fractional share purchases this year. Charles Schwab is always striving to change the game of investing by allowing it to be attainable by anyone even if it’s only 5 dollars at a time.
Rep contact info 4/5
It would be good if the app Lisa Ted your Schwab consultant name and contact info
Deposit Check Using Photo Capture 5/5
By NOLA 64X1
centric and customer centric
By Dr Ar Jay
Quite easy to use. I’m not user smart and enjoy this app.
Good, not great 3/5
After all the years I’ve used the app it STILL has the same bug: on your watch list if you click on a ticker symbol on the grid almost anywhere on the screen it will give you results for a different symbol, making the watch list function of the app useless, unless you are only watching one stock!
App has user friendly interface.
Easy to explore & news are well updated.
Great app. 5/5
Easy to use. Seamless.
Great Company 5/5
By Smoke a Little Smoke
Great Company to work with. The only you need to watch for is that when something goes wrong on your account they don’t notify you always so you need to check up periodically if your doing a transaction.
Stocks only go up 🖐 5/5
Important Stuff‼️ 2/5
The “device watchlist” feature is trash. It should be removed entirely. It’s a dumb idea. There is no need for it to exist. It’s also the first watchlist that pops up by default, so I always have to click “watchlist” then “device watchlist” then the watchlist I actually want to see. I should be able to pick my default watchlist
Please copy what YouTube does for playlists and use that for watchlists. If I click “Add to Watchlist” while looking at a stock, I should be able to check off multiple watchlists, and I should also be able to uncheck watchlists that I want to remove that stock from
Please copy this Robinhood feature: When you click on any stock, it should show how many shares you have of that stock, your cost basis, and other important info. Look at the Robinhood app to see what I’m talking about‼️
“Economic Moat” is missing on the app (it’s visible on the desktop website)
Each watchlist should have an unlimited number of stocks in it. I have multiple lists that are all for high-dividend paying stocks, and I often have the same stocks in multiple watchlists. There should also be a clickable box on the website and in the app that says “Always automatically alphabetize this watchlist.” Then there should be an option in the setting to always automatically alphabetize every watchlist, and you would then be able to un-check the box on any specific watchlists that you don’t want alphabetized automatically‼️
FIX FACE ID 1/5
Update: Face ID still has not been addressed with this update. A known issue with multiple user complaints, completely ignored in past two developer updates.
Please fix FaceID logon. This was a known issue before release of this update, and I still must enter passcode every time, despite enabling FaceID.
I wanted to invest and bank under one roof, however this app will make me look elsewhere. With banking, I just need a clean UI for bill pay, transfers, etc. A Bill pay payment does not add a pending payment to your checking account running balance, meaning you have to switch between bill pay and checking, after having added up pending payments in bill pay, then switching to checking, and subtracting that from checking balance. This is clumsy programming at best, and a disservice to members of Schwab at worst. Schwab is primarily an online brokerage, yes. But it also calls itself a bank. Very low-tech banking app for a bank based near Silicon Valley.
Schwab measurement tools 5/5
Good online app - especially bubble charts on realized gain loss. On line app would be even better if it included the risk/ return performance chart available on the standard Schwab web site. This measurement is the holy grail of investment performance that I have not seen replicated by any other brokerage sites.
App dosent work more than 90% of the time 2/5
The app crashed more than 90% of the time I open it makes it very hard to monitor trades as well as the market. If they could fix that I would rate this app 5 stars
To pushy 3/5
They call you to push you to find your account and if you don’t they close your account and send you a weird letter about your credit score ??? Really! I don’t know if they are aware but every stock app is free 100% if not fractional they need to wake up !
An App That Does It All 5/5
The Schwab App allows me full access to my accounts 24/7 with all of the power of a desk top login. Schwab is super easy to navigate and you always have support just a chat away if needed.
Option chains are not available like desktop version 3/5
Option chains are not available like desktop version. Due to which it’s really painful trade best option opportunity
Schwab offers some good investment choices. However the app is really slow compared to TD Ameritrade. Slow charts, quotes and account updates. Hope Schwab switches app to TDA platform after acquisition.
Not happy 1/5
What you charge on margin accounts, you should have state of art technology
I’m looking to transfer to another broker or mutual fund
Sadly I must after 30 plus years Schwab just doesn’t cut it anymore
Easy to do.
Ms Bonnie Santiago 5/5
By bonnie santia
Excellent service, the best financial institute (*bank) I have ever felt with. My local office is in Mystic, Ct. and Danielle Barbato is our Service Specialist. She is fantastic.. always available to help in person/via phone. Thank you , Bonnie Smith
Update the user interface layout on the app 4/5
I like almost everything about Charles Schwab except their app. Needs to be updated/modernized in my opinion to a much more user friendly layout.
This app is magnificent
Easy to navigate
Common Sense Just Isn’t Common Anymore 1/5
You should probably remove the big ugly yellow ribbon saying “Important Notifications” once I have viewed and deleted said notification. There’s no reason for that to be there after I have deleted it. This is common sense...
Needs Improvements 1/5
User interface is outdated. App layout is terrible.. lots of clicking and searching to find what you need. App Needs to be modernized or else you’ll continue losing customers to Robinhood.
Impossible to get into account 1/5
Their customer service is useless. They locked my account after I tried to set it up and won’t unlock it. They asked for my driver’s license to verify my address.
Apparently following their instructions to submit my driver’s license verifying my address doesn’t actually verify my address. I was given no explanation about why. Now I’ll have to go into a branch to unlock my account, but the branches are only open during working hours. I have to work during normal working hours, so I guess I’ll never be able to use my account.
Avoid my mistake and just make your home and mailing address the same if you sign up. They can’t handle it otherwise and you’ll get locked out as well.
My opinion 5/5
I’ve been a C. Schwab client for 20 some years and never had any complaints
Easy to use app, sooo cool! 5/5
I’ve never traded stock and I felt lost but this app is really easy and clear for any first timers to get their foot in the door. I’m excited to make some money!
State of the Art 5/5
By jeff from sayville
This app is the best banking app that I have used. It is intuitive, reliable, quick and gives me access to all the information that I may need, unlike other banking apps where I may occasionally have to visit their website in a browser to download a document or get some piece of information.
My only wish is that logging out could be more easily accomplished with one hand. As it is now I must strain with my thumb to press buttons on the upper left and lower right extreme corners of the screen to log out.
Great App 3/5
By Architect 100.1
Love the app...... I just wish we had more data on a 10 and Max look back on e stock history with splits shown and an unlimited “Watchlist”; I’m maxed out on my watch at this point.
App Deposit Protocol 5/5
By STAR ALLIANCE • FOUNDATION
I really liked The feature I found today while using the app deposit function for the first time: the automatic photo-take when the check back (at least) is properly framed. What a simple but wonderful technological step forward, eliminating all those precious seconds of human time and anxiety trying to get the shot just right! Thank you very much, Schwab!
Yes! Kudos! — PBD
Natural & inductive 5/5
By pedr martin moreno
Excited about muy account !! Doing things easy and inductively
Should be able to place limit orders in smaller increments.
How about creating an instrument to function as futures option on Brent?
Perfect app 5/5
I have nothing further. It’s easy to understand and fast. I love it
Love this app 5/5
I love the interface super friendly and easy to navigate. It has all the info I need, it’s like my pc on my hands. Good job on the app.
Trading platform 5/5
By Ghost Meister
Awesome ! Schwab is the best you can get ! Thanks !!!
The Best 5/5
By Brokie-el loco
No Bank Better!?$&;&;&;&;
Easy to use 5/5
This app is extremely easy to use and the information provided is well organized to assist in your trading decisions.
Fantastic UX 4/5
By Brandon Galbraith
Schwab app is one of the best brokerage mobile apps I’ve had the pleasure of using. Only deficiency is more push notification options would be welcome (for example, it would be helpful to be able to get an ebill push notification when the new bill has been received).
Won’t open after update 1/5
The new update isn’t working at all. Please do something to fix it.
By Baby Man A
Love the app
I benefit from using the Schwab app on my IPad & IPhone. I use it regularly to monitor activity, do some trades and pull statements & tax forms.
Great App. 5/5
I am really enjoying trading options from my phone with this very efficient app. Thank you.
