In this article, you'll learn more about how to use MailChimp on mobile devices.

Mobile-Friendly View

When you use MailChimp in a web browser, we’ll resize and adjust the site to fit the display of the mobile device you're on. The navigation bar shifts to the upper-left of the screen and becomes a tap-to-view menu. Notification and account menus, as well as the search icon, will shift to the upper right.

You can use the full Campaign Builder on your tablet’s web browser, but the editing pane is hidden on the side of your screen. To display it, tap the arrow icon on the side of the screen.
