Ratings and Reviews
Highly functional with a dated look
I’ve been using this app for over a decade and have experienced all the versions of it since. I can say, hands down, this is highly functional, reliable, mobile banking app with all the stock trading power you could ask for in the palm of your hand. I can tell you Schwab has Leo their app competitive with all the mobile banking functionality you would expect any bank to offer, plus the added power and flexibility of stock trading that also keeps up with the best of the industry players.
That being said, with all efforts for functional upkeep, it seems the user interface has taken a backseat as of late. Nowadays, the dark color-themed user interfaces are king on mobile Apps and most software in general, and they seemingly take advantage of high-contrast design with vibrant interactive dashboards. The Schwab app is uninspiring comprised of mostly white, light grey, or beige color schemes with a few static bar charts that look straight out of Windows 2000 - frozen in time.
Overall, the user interface has really begun to look aged and frankly, more than a bit out of date. For such an amazingly powerful mobile banking app, the user interface (UI) just feels lacking and could benefit from a major visual overhaul - One that helps to better position Schwab as a leader of online mobile banking and information technology space. A banking app for the future.
Best for Banking and Best for Brokerage
I can not stress enough how impressive Charles Schwab has been in every way, and I have been with many different banks. When I inherited my brokerage account, everyone at Schwab treated me like family right away. Anytime I had a question or wanted to do something over the phone, the customer service was always outstanding. I do believe they lead the trading industry, because when Chuck started it, he did it for the people, not for himself. I believe they have the perfect balance of traditional face to face or over the phone service along with the leading technology for online trading. When they informed me they did checking accounts also, I immediately switched them to my main banking institution. Best financial decision I’ve ever made. With their fewer branches than most banks, they compensate greatly with their online services. Check deposits are posted to your account sometimes within minutes! I’m not one to write reviews for companies at all, but after all the trouble I’ve been through with my other banks, Charles Schwab really deserves a 5 out of 5. I can’t say I have ever had a bad experience with them! A++++
Schwab is my everyday Valentine ❤️
I absolutely love Schwab! Unlike most people, I didn’t open an account with Schwab for trading. After coming to USA in 2016, I started with Chase since my peers pushed for it. I didn’t have a clue and ended up with Chase. Chase didn’t treat me well and I switched to Bank of America. BofA is relatively good, but I didn’t like them for unnecessary fees all the time. I only heard of the concept of “online only” banks back then. And had to chose between Schwab and Ally. Thank god I chose Schwab! Best decision ever made. Their customer service is top notch. The most polite set of people you’ll ever speak to. My experience is so good that I terminated my Robinhood and now trade exclusively with Schwab.
If I were to make one change in Schwab, it has to be support for faster movement of money, say using Zelle etc. That’s the only reason I haven’t closed my Bank of America... yet. The day Schwab introduces Zelle or any faster method of moving money, I’ll commit myself to Schwab only.
Speaking of the app itself, it works smooth. Never had a problem. However once in a while, I do see some issue with options and a blank page appears with a message “Content currently not available”. I’m sure other users have experienced this too. Hope they fix it soon.
