MailChimp for Android makes it easy to manage your account on the go. Create and edit campaigns, track account activity, edit campaign information, view campaign reports, and add new contacts 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.
