Delta is the best mobile crypto portfolio app available right now. It’s packed with great functionality, is regularly updated, and is well-recommended across the crypto-community.
Delta’s crypto portfolio tracker app was released in 2017 for Android and iOS. Less than a year later, they announced that they had over 1,000,000 users. During that time, they also won Webby’s ‘Best Mobile UI’ 2018 award.
But is it better than all the other great options out there? Is it the best crypto portfolio app?
Read this Delta crypto app review to find out why it’s one of my favourite crypto portfolio apps.
Pros and Cons
- Free version packed with excellent core functionality.
- Casual investors probably wouldn’t need to purchase the PRO upgrade.
- Entering transactions is easy and intuitive.
- Can setup one-time or recurring alerts.
- You can request a CSV copy of transactions logged inside of Delta’s app.
- Can sync cryptocurrency portfolio across mobile and desktop (beta) apps.
- PRO upgrade is comparatively bad value (at least £64/year).
- Frequently felt unresponsive.
- When imputing a new transaction, the buy and sell price isn’t auto-populated. It’ll just show today’s buy/sell price.
- For whatever reason, this isn’t a feature on Blockfolio either.
- There’s a feature request by someone here for this feature.
- CSV imports not available (but it’s on the roadmap)
The PRO Upgrade: Worth it?
In short: upgrading to PRO isn’t worth it.
Here’s what you get for upgrading:
- Ability to setup multiple portfolios (up to 10).
- Unlimited automatic exchange API imports
- Sync up to 5 devices.
To upgrade, you’ll need to handover £90 per year (monthly subscription) or £64 per year (annual subscription). There’s no lifetime membership option.
Let’s not sugar coat it: this is bad value. For the same cost, you can get a CoinTracking PRO account – which, while more complicated to use, is the superior cryptocurrency portfolio manager. I have an in-depth review of CoinTracking here.
Automatic API Imports
Undoubtedly, the ability to setup an unlimited number of exchange API imports with the PRO subscription is what will encourage people to upgrade. With the free version, you’re limited to just two automatic exchange API imports.
Delta currently supports automatic API imports from the following exchanges:
Some API imports are only available for PRO users, although this is temporary while they test for issues.
What Do I Think?
This might be harsh, but I wasn’t left particularly disappointed or satisfied with Delta’s cryptocurrency portfolio app.
The free version has the basic functionality (tracking your portfolio, setting up a watchlist, and alerts) which will be sufficient for the majority of ‘casual’ cryptocurrency investors. But the PRO version is underwhelming and overpriced. Based on what’s currently included, I wouldn’t bother upgrading.
For serious cryptocurrency traders or investors, I think you’d be better served by something like CoinTracking. For the same yearly price (£60), you get much more bang for your buck. Although there are numerous alternatives to this, I haven’t tested one with as much functionality as CoinTracking.
Should You Switch From Blockfolio?
For the most part, Blockfolio and Delta are interchangeable. With the addition of automatic API imports, I consider Delta to be the superior offering of the two. But is it worth migrating over for just that? Considering that Blockfolio is looking to add similar functionality in the near future, it’s probably not worth your time and effort – especially since Delta doesn’t support CSV imports at the moment (which means you’ll have to re-enter all your trades).
You can find a small list of the most well-recommended cryptocurrency portfolio trackers here. There’s a longer list of other portfolio trackers (which I’m aware of) here too.
