Use Mailchimp on Mobile Devices
Mailchimp is responsive, meaning you can use it on mobile devices. Learn how Mailchimp works on different devices. And find out about other mobile tools.
Mailchimp's mobile app makes it easy to manage your account on the go. Create and edit campaigns, track account activity, view reports, and add new contacts directly from your mobile device.
This app can do a lot for you when you're out and about, but it's not meant to replace the full version of Mailchimp. If you need to do something in your account that isn't available in the mobile app, access the full version of Mailchimp in a web browser.
In this article, you'll learn what you can do with Mailchimp's mobile app.
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
You’ll find the main navigation at the bottom of your screen. The icons represent Home, Explore, Audience, Campaigns, and Reports.
To search for a specific campaign or contact, tap the search icon.
After typing in a keyword or a name, you can sort your results by either option.
To access your account settings, tap the profile icon on the Home tab. From there you can connect additional accounts, switch between connected accounts, verify email domains, manage push notifications, search our Knowledge Base, or report an issue.
To learn about your settings options, we have a guide on these features here.
The Home tab is an at-a-glance view of how your campaigns are doing. It syncs with your account data as you build your audience and complete campaigns.
The Home tab includes a few important sections.
The Explore tab is a place to get suggestions on how to grow your audience. We’ll recommend features you can try out, and share stories about other Mailchimp users.
We may suggest that you try a Welcome email automation, an Abandoned Cart email, or a Product Retargeting email. These recommendations will only appear if you haven’t used them before in your account. To learn more about these features, check out these guides.
On the Audience tab, you’ll see performance stats for your audience, including information on opens, clicks, subscribes, and unsubscribes.
You can also manage your audience from this tab. Here are some tasks and how to complete them.
Share the audience signup form
Tap the export icon to share your audience's signup form with your contacts via SMS text message, email, or other available app.
Add a contact
Tap the add contact icon and input the subscriber information.
If you have more than one audience, you can switch between them by tapping All Audiences. The audience you switch to will become the new default in your account.
The Campaigns tab shows your emails, automated emails, and ads. To create a draft campaign, tap the create campaign icon in the upper-right corner.

To filter the campaigns, tap the filter icon in the upper-left corner. Use the filter tool to sort and find your campaigns by status: All, Drafts, Ongoing, and Completed.
After you find the campaign you want to work with, tap it and take one of these actions. Available actions vary by the campaign type you open.
These emails and ads haven’t been sent yet.
Ongoing campaigns include automations, RSS campaigns, and ads.
Here, you’ll find campaigns that are done sending.
Use this filter to view all of your draft, ongoing, and completed campaigns.
The Reports tab displays reports for recent emails, ads, landing pages, and postcards. Tap any campaign to view its report and access other tasks.
On the Overview screen of any campaign report, you'll find detailed information and statistics, including the campaign send time and a 24-hour performance graph.
From here, you can also complete these tasks.
