There are a range of different options you can use for publishing posts and pages on your iOS and android mobile devices including:

Browser

There is no need to use an app on your mobile device.

Your dashboard is mobile friendly and designed to work on the browser of your mobile device.  It works exactly like the dashboard on your computer except the appearance changes as the screen size decreases.

Admin bar

Your gray admin bar at the top provides shortcuts to areas inside your dashboard.

WordPress app

Your site is powered by a customized version of WordPress which means you can use the WordPress app.

Once you’ve installed the WordPress app on your mobile device you log in as follows:

1.  Launch the WordPress app.

2.  Tap on the link that says “Enter your existing site address“.

Tap on existing site address

Link varies with app version and operating system.

3.  Enter your site address and tap Continue.

Add Site address

4. Enter your username and password then tap Continue.

Enter username and password.

If your user account is attached to more than one site you will see an option to select which site to open.

You can’t log in using your site address if your account is set up to log in using SSO such as Google apps, Shibboleth, AZURE, ADFS. The solution is to set up JetPack on your site and then log in using your WordPress.com account. 

Post by Email

Post by email makes it easy to publish a new post by sending an email.

To use Post by email you need to enable the Post by Email module in the Jetpack plugin.

The subject of the email is used as the title of the post and the body is the post’s contents. Multiple images are inserted as a gallery.
