Quickbooks Online Desktop Application Install?

Is there any real advantage to installing the Quickbooks application on my Windows desktop rather than just logging in through the browser?

Quickbooks Online Desktop Application Install?

Hey there, sjstock. 

 

Thanks for dropping by the Community, I'm happy to shed some light on the main difference between the app and the web browser. The big difference is speed. Pages load up to 150% faster in the app than they do in the browser because the QuickBooks app uses local caching of data. This is most noticeable when you access long lists of data, such as a bank register or a chart of accounts. Other than that, they both work great! Here's a link to our PC app if you want to check it out. 

If you have any other questions, feel free to post them here. Thanks for your time and I hope you have a lovely day.
