CryptoTracker UWP launches for Windows 10 (Mobile)

Published by at

Another day, another new UWP title, at least during Launch 21. This time it's CryptoTracker, offering graphical and numeric analyses on up to 800 cryptocurrencies, along with portfolio tracking. Add in a choice of light and dark themes, plus it works on everything from a Lumia to a Windows 11 2-in-1. Top notch, and well done to the developer for letting 'ye olde' Lumias join in the fun.

From the Store description:

Simple yet powerful cryptocurrency portfolio tracker designed with simplicity and functionality in mind.

  • Beautiful and customizable price and volume charts
  • Supports over 800 cryptocurrencies!
  • Stay up to date with Alerts, Live Tiles and Compact Overlays
  • Powerful portfolio to track the performance of your purchases (with backups).
  • Keep up with the latest news.
  • More than 15 currencies: EUR, USD, GBP, AUD, CNY, JPY, INR...
  • Beautiful Light and Dark themes inline with Windows 11.

As ever, here's the app in action on my Lumia 950 XL:


Easy tabbed time period views and clear trends - the view scrolls, in theory, for plenty more crypto currencies, but in practice - in this beta and on Windows 10 Mobile at least, it just scrolls to show the top 4. Odd - no doubt this will get fixed.


The initial light theme offended my eyes, so a quick trip into Settings lets me pick a 'Dark' theme and also set everything to '$', which is how I think of my crypto, the universal exchange currency, etc.


And there we go. All nice and dark. Now, how to show up other currencies... Anyone know how (yet)?


You can tap to dive into a specific currency - looks like my XRP just took a dive! Oh well. Loads and loads of stats for each crypto currency here.


You can also start inputting your trades in order to build up a portfolio, which the app then keeps track of (in terms of overall worth).

You can grab this for free here in the Store. It's interesting that each of the compatible UWP applications released recently have slight issues under Windows 10 Mobile but it's not altogether surprising. I'd bet that, even with the best intentions, testing so far on Windows phones has been somewhat minimal.
