Best platform out there
I was introduced to Think or Swim two years ago from a mentor and I will never switch. The mobile app is a big plus as it is pretty close to the real platform. I work and have a family so the mobile app allows me to follow trades and get updates that I need. You would expect there to be a delay with execution but it is very very good!

Personally I do not use too much of the extra studies they provide but they look great. One of the cool items that I learned is that you can invert your charts. My mentor taught me the trick and when we take trades sometimes we look at patterns using that trick.

Happy to be a client.

Damn good trading platform!
Was first introduced to ThinkorSwim through Investools a few years ago. At the time I think ThinkorSwim was a paid service. After a horrible experience with Investools I stepped away from the market and didn't think it was for me. After I found a much better education program I'm back at it and doing well. ThinkorSwim is LOADED with features! Once you get the hang of it you'll love it's ease of navigation and many useful features. Even if using other brokers for cheaper commissions I'd highly recommend ThinkorSwim for charting.

Also, ThinkorSwim is part of TDAmeritrade who has AMAZING customer service!!! I'd rate customer service ten checks if possible. Seriously the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with, stock market related or not. I actually enjoy phone calls with TDAmeritrade. Whenever I've had an issue they were very prompt at resolving it.

Execution I gave 3 stars because I have had issues with executions but that may be user error. As I open with more brokers the larger I grow my funds I will most likely still use ThinkorSwim for my charting. I see it being hard to beat, especially once you're use to it.

great product for retail trader
I think TOS is great and have no complaints after years of using it. I don't daytrade so am not bothered by the commissions or speed that others complain about. It suits my purposes perfectly. Only drawback is sometimes I think they have too many bells and whistles on the platform. Not a god daytrader platform but great for all others.

Good Platform
I just started to use the Think Or Swim platform earlier this year as I have been learning a bit more about options trading through a mentor and I cannot believe the amount of tools that are given away for free. I asked some friends of mine who are money managers about it and to my surprise a few of them have moved away from their Bloomberg to use this. The only complaint I have is that there have been a few times dealing with customer service that I have been given incorrect answers, only to have to call back. Other than that, great platform and great options tools!

Good for investors and options
A good platform for long term investors with IRA accounts and option traders. If they cut the prices on commissions just a bit, it might be perfect. Their charts are great to use and customizable for technical traders. The option tools are pretty nice too. They even offer nice squawk feeds in their chat rooms for free. This is not a direct access platform for day traders. This is more like a boutique shop with all of the bells and whistles.

Probably the best free trading software around.
Very well thought out, intuitive design. The only problem I've ever encountered with it is that sometimes my settings don't save.

The Most Comprehensive Trading Software Available
ThinkOrSwim is a great platform which gives you as a trader all the tools you'll need.

It has a ton of tools needed to do the most comprehensive technical analysis if you want to. You can easily set up a lot of screeners and studies within the software, but it also gives you the opportunity to go real deep with writing in the ThinkScript language.

You can find so much information online about the software which can be overwhelming in the beginning. I recommend watching the videos in the Learning Center of ThinkOrSwim itself.

When first starting out with TOS you'll have to change some settings to get real-time Level2 quotes, don't really understand why they don't have this preset for you when you install the software.

The commissions for day-trading can add up as they're pretty expensive compared to other online brokerage accounts.

super fantastic once you get use to it
Great platform once you get use to it. Make sure you watch a few videos to make sure you know how to set your charts up. This platform has everything you need as a trade level 2, time and sells, multiple charts and scans.
