Hello Hodlers! CBR is back at it with another review. Today, we’ll be looking at the Crypto Tracker BitScreener app.
As both a long-term investor and trader of crypto, I am always searching for new tools to aid me in my quest to track the market and look for opportunities. I’ve tried many different apps, but ended up feeling constrained by the limited features they offered. I’ve used BitScreener.com before and I was impressed by their charts and heat maps, but their iOS app really takes everything to the next level.
The first thing you’ll notice upon opening up the app is just how comprehensive the tracker is. Over 2,000 coins from 80 exchanges are tracked and all trading pairs from these exchanges are supported. So no matter if you want to track your profits in terms of Ethereum or Binance Coin, you are able to do that simply. In addition, it is easy to display prices in any major fiat currency, which is important for those of you outside the US.

Once I was able to add coins to my portfolio, the thing that shocked me was just how quickly prices were updating. Prices are literally up to the second, which can make a huge difference in the crypto market. No app or site I’ve used, besides the exchanges themselves, has had prices updated as quickly as BitScreener.
According to BitScreener, they are going to add the ability to import from crypto wallets such as Jaxx and MEW soon, which would be a super exciting integration feature!
The charts and technical indicators that BitScreener has implemented are pretty neat. If you are serious about Technical Analysis, you’ll find numerous tools at your disposal here, including all kinds of indicators and overlays, like Moving Averages and Bollinger Bands. In my testing, one feature that I enjoyed was the gallery view, where you can add multiple timeframes to a single view.
A tool that could be really useful to investors is the Crypto Screener. You can screen by a multitude of criteria to find your perfect coin, by looking at such things as age, type, market cap, and recent performance. This feature can help identify investment opportunities and sure beats scrolling through the fifth page of Coinmarketcap.
If you are an active trader, the screener, combined with the price and performance alerts, is a great combination. The alerts support many different kinds of logic, including recurring alerts, alerts when a price reaches a level persistently, and alerts for performance within a set timeframe (this could be great to find when a coin is pumping). They recently even added an alert that sounds every 30 seconds, if you want to stay awake and trade ‘foreign exchange’.
Another cool feature is the ability to read news within the app. They are really trying to make this a one-stop shop for all your crypto needs. I’ve also heard that they are going to be adding a social network within the app, which can be useful to gauge market sentiment and seek out opinions on different coins. Seems like they have a solid team of developers and are releasing new features frequently.
Overall, I really enjoyed using BitScreener’s iOS app, as it has the most impressive array of features I’ve ever seen in a crypto tracker, combined with a slick interface and fun user experience. My only gripe would be that they don’t have an Android app yet. As an Android phone user, I had to use this app on my iPad, but the charts look really snazzy there.
It seems that many people around the world share this sentiment, as it is a top 100 app in many countries (top 250 in the US), with a 4.7 rating on the app store. From the reviews, users are praising the quick price updating, price alerts, and graphing capabilities. I highly recommend this app to serious crypto investors.
