Ratings and Reviews
Credit Where It’s Due
I rarely write reviews, but in light of recent events, I think it’s time to give credit to the Vanguard Group for being one of the few who did not try to suppress the common man from participating in the “free market” during one of the greatest transferences of wealth in our history. Many other platforms participated in protecting the interests of the super wealthy, and pretending they had the interests of small retail investors in mind. It’s OUR money, we know what the risks are! (at least most of us do). Ethics and morals aside, I will say the app itself could use certain improvements, even the site itself. As far as I can tell, there’s no way to buy or sell options through the app, the actual website must be used. I also wish their platform was able to refresh market prices at a much faster rate, to execute better orders at any given moment. If Vanguard can add a touch of modern or advanced tools for more experienced traders, that would be the icing on the cake. Overall, this is a stand up brokerage firm. Give them your business, no regrets yet.
Listen to all the recent 1 star reviews, the new update is very meh
I can not agree more with all the 1 star reviews from around Nov to Dec 2021, this new interface they have is very lacking. Honestly the app before was kind of outdated looking, but it was very robust. If you’re a daily user like me, all the features you needed are there.
The nicest thing about the old version was there’s always a filter button to customize whatever you’re looking at. Whether you’re looking at the cost basis, performance returns, transactions history, you can always filter it to show by fund(s), by account(s), or whatever custom way you want. You can do year to date, month to day, any random date range. YOU CAN’T DO THAT IN THE NEW UPDATE.
I get they were trying to add a “modern” look to the app and I applaud them for trying but it’s missing some really basic feature. I miss being able to just use the app for a lot of my research instead of having to log into the website just to be able to filter for basic information like dividends for the year only for non-retirement accounts. If the tech team at Vanguard even cares about these reviews , please please please either give the customers the option to switch back to the old version while they iron out the new look or at the very least just add back the filter button to transaction history.
Miss old app
I like vanguard but part of what I loved about it is seeing the growth historically and to do that, it would be good to see contributions/transaction history as well. While historical returns are on here (only in increments provided), it would be nice to see historical contributions/transactions and I can currently only see 2021 and 2022 contributions; given 2021 tax filings aren’t due, it’s basically as if you only have current year contributions on here. It seems simple but all the more reason I’m not sure why this was removed in the new version. If it’s on here somewhere, it’s not an intuitive app and I’m missing it although I don’t think I am. That’s my biggest issue but given I use the app to see balance, historical returns, and contributions, it’s missing 1/3 of what it used to have and even analyzing returns is just a snapshot (I’d suggest adding in a graph with a slider to show balance AND returns, similar to what you have for balance right now). I worked for a private firm who had better analytics on my retirement fund than Vanguard has and this is their sole business function. I’ll continue to use them but the app needs work.
