Is it possible that Onshape can develope an APP for computers?

I am recently expose to OnShape mobile app on iPad and the experience is fantastic. It is much smoother on my iPad compared to my 64G RAM 8G graphic card laptop under the same wifi. Is this caused by the app because there is no browser limiting the speed?

    Hi @chen_dai,

    Can you please go to https://cad.onshape.com/check and post the results of your Compatibility check here? It's possible that the browser you are using on your laptop is not utilizing your discrete graphics card or you could be having a driver issue.

    if your laptop has a discrete graphics card (such as nVidia) you can check the setting @mthiesmeyer is talking about here:

    set global settings for your browser (in my case chrome) to use the nVidia card instead of the intel chip.
    I'm not showing nVidia on mine because I'm on my desktop and there is only one option for me :)

    After you set those settings. Close and re-open your browser.

    then do the system check again. you should see your discrete card there under "Renderer"
