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.
In this article, you'll learn what you can do with MailChimp for Android.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
- If you’re new to MailChimp, you can sign up for a new account and build your contact list from your mobile device, but you won’t see any other account data until you create a campaign and start sending in the full version of MailChimp.
- This article uses a Nexus 5 to demonstrate MailChimp's features. Other Android devices may render the same features slightly differently.
- Depending on your user level, you may not have access to all the features in this article. Owners, Admins, and Managers have full access to MailChimp for Android.
- MailChimp is also available for iOS devices.
