Mobile and Desktop Trading
Both platforms have mobile and desktop applications. Uphold's mobile app is rated 4.6 stars on the Apple App Store and 4.7 stars on Google Play, with users praising its easy-to-use interface. Gate.io’s iOS app has a lower rating of 3,6 stars. Gate.io's desktop version, like its mobile counterpart, is intricate and better suited to experienced traders.
Uphold’s app has a 3.5-star rating from 5,000 reviews on the Apple App store and a 3.2-star rating from 18,000 reviews on Google Play. Some reviewers have said the app is slow and buggy, with the verification process being particularly slow.
Uphold is easy to use for beginners. There is a quick trade option called “Anything to Anything”. All you need to do is enter the asset you want to trade, the amount, and the asset you wish to swap it for. You can trade crypto to stocks, stocks to metal etc. in just a few clicks.

Gate.io’s iOS app has a 2.5-star rating from 700 reviews and a 2.5-star rating from 10,000 reviews on Google Play. It is quite low, we would recommend using a desktop app. Many reviewers have said that they cannot log in, that the 2FA does not work, you are often sent to blank pages and overall a bad user interface. We never had such issues though.
