There’s no shortage of mobile usage statistics telling us that more people around the world are accessing information and working from their mobile devices. In fact, a quick glance at our own analytics says that at least one out of every ten people visiting our site is viewing our blog from a mobile device.
It’s a no-brainer, then, that if you work day in and day out with WordPress, you’ll want to be able to do things like add or edit content, view orders in your WordPress eCommerce store, reply to comments and more from your mobile phone or tablet.
In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to use the WordPress mobile app and compare using the app to accessing your WordPress site directly through your mobile web browser.
The WordPress Mobile App for iPhone and Android
The WordPress Mobile App is developed and maintained by Automattic (the company that owns WordPress) and can be downloaded for mobile devices running on Android and iOS.
The app for WordPress installs just like every other app. Depending on your device, download the app from Google Play or Apple Store. For this tutorial, I’ll use my Android phone to share some screenshots with you.
Once you’ve installed the app, you can add multiple sites from your WordPress.com account or a self-hosted WordPress site. Just select which type of site you would like to add and go through the setup screens to enter your site and login details.
