About MailChimp for Android

MailChimp for Android makes it easy to manage your account on the go. Track subscriber and campaign activity, view campaign reports, and add new subscribers 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.

Download MailChimp for Android from the Google Play store.

In this article, you'll learn what you can do with MailChimp for Android.
