Whether you’re managing a business or creating content, life is often all hands on deck. But how do you manage a website when you’re in back-to-back meetings, work full-time or have a to-do list as long as your arm?

The WordPress app makes it a breeze to write posts, edit content, check performance and more, so you never have to be tied to your desk. Want to know more? You’ve come to the right place.

Did you know that worldwide we spend an average of 3.3 hours every day accessing the internet on our mobiles? When you consider that many people work most of their day or are in education, spending 3.3 hours on our phones daily is pretty impressive.

The fact we spend so much time on mobile devices proves just how important it is to be able to manage your WordPress site on the small screen. Enter – the WordPress app!

What can you do in the WordPress app?

Whether you’re writing hot-off-the-press blogs, launching sell-out products on your online shop or placing yourself as the expert with a business site, the WordPress app means you can do whatever you need to, wherever the day takes you.

Post on-the-go

You never know when inspiration will strike and now you can always have your virtual pen at the ready for when it does. You can create new posts, edit old ones, build new pages and more. The app editor is just as easy to use as the browser one you’re used to with pre-designed page layouts to get you started. All you have to do is tap and type.

Be a media mogul

Want to add photos to a gallery? Need to create a new slideshow? You can bring your posts and pages to life in a tap with photos and videos from your device’s albums. Or if you’ve got a fresh idea, you can snap and film new content on-the-fly directly within the WordPress app. Plus, if you’re still looking for the perfect image, you can browse the in-app selection of stock photography.

Get notified

Stay on top of site activity even when you can’t be at your desk. You can enable push notifications so you’ll always know when you’ve got new comments, post likes, followers and more. It’s a great way to keep up with what’s going on when you’re on the train, taking a walk or chilling on the sofa!

You’ll even get milestone notifications to celebrate when your site achieves noteworthy stats like a certain number of site views or a huge number of blog posts (get the party poppers at the ready!).

Curate comments

Keep the conversion going away from the work laptop. Read, manage and reply to comments all from the palm of your hand. There’s also the handy “swipe-to-moderate” feature in the comments list so you can easily approve, un-approve, trash, reply and ‘mark as spam’ new comments you get on your site or blog.

Take control of plugins

Plugins add powerful functionalities to your WordPress site and now with the WordPress app you can manage them as and when you need to. Instead of having to go through the hassle of logging into a desktop browser for every little change you need to make, you can manage, activate, deactivate and update plugins all from your pocket. All you need to do is make sure you’re using the latest version of the app and have an up-to-date version of Jetpack installed on your site (version 5.6+ required).

Discover inspiration

The Reader section of the app will be your go-to place for post inspo. Follow tags and topics and stay up to date with anything and everything that interests you. You can then explore the ‘Discover’ tab where the WordPress app will show you related blogs from across the web to inspire you.

It will also be a great way for new audiences to discover your content, so make sure you use the best tags and categories when creating your posts to help WordPress recommend them to the right readers.

Be comfortable

A lot of us spend a large amount of our day staring at a screen, especially if you’re managing a website. The good news is that the WordPress app has a dark mode! So, you give our eyes a rest and enjoy working comfortably on your site without giving yourself a headache.


Build habits

Know you should be posting regularly but find it hard to keep up? Many of us plan to meet posting goals, and even have a huge list of ideas to work with but just find that time slips through our hands. Now you can build an online audience, please search engines and scrub up on those writing skills with Blogging Reminders – select the days you want to publish and a push notification will remind you to flex those fingers and get typing.


Be social

Stay connected with social media and set up automatic sharing right from your mobile devices. Hook it up with popular channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. Plus, you can manage social sharing buttons on the posts themselves, including tweaking how they look so they fit right in.

Can I manage multiple sites on the WordPress app?

An agency or freelancer with multiple client sites? An entrepreneur with several ventures on the go? Whatever the reason, if you need to manage multiple sites in your WordPress app, you can. It’s easy to switch between them, all you have to do is go to your site list and select which one you want to manage. Now you’ve got the tools you need to keep on top of it all from wherever you are.
