Main differences and the advantages of using the Tradingview App for Windows

User interface

The Tradingview app for PC looks almost identical in appearance to the browser version. The only variation is the app version has no browser window search bar. This provides a cleaner, less cluttered and more professional looking platform window. 

Below is a screen shot comparison between the Tradingview browser version (left) and Tradingview App for PC (right).

Faster, more powerful and more stable solution

The main reason why you might want to consider using the Tradingview app is the added platform performance. The Tradingview desktop application has been built to be a faster and more powerful solution than the browser version.

If you’re using Tradingview on a daily basis as your primary trading platform and have a dedicated trading workstation. Consider downloading and installing the Tradingview app for PC for the added performance and stability.

Native multiple monitor support

This is my favorite feature of the Tradingview app for PC version. It allows users to save and retrieve multiple window setups in a single chart layout. The custom setups can be saved as a chart layout (see the link to learn how to create and save a Tradingview chart layout). Then retrieved at a later date for use with multiple monitors.

This isn’t possible with the browser version instead only a single window is saved as a chart layout.

The minimum requirements for using the Tradingview Windows App is Windows 10 64 bit operating system version 20H2 or above.
