ManageWP Mobile App Now Available

We have some exciting news to announce today: The ManageWP app for iOS and Android is back in the App Store and Google Play Store!

We’re pretty stoked about the whole thing here, but before we dive into its many awesome features, you’re probably wondering what I mean by “back” in the app stores.

Allow me to explain.

Out With the Old, In With the New

ManageWP logoNo, you haven’t gone crazy. There used to be a ManageWP app available.

But to be honest, it just wasn’t as functional as we wanted it to be. Sure – it offered access to every single feature you could get on the desktop version, but therein laid the issue.

After much testing and research, our dev team realized that the fact that the old app gave users access to all the same features as the desktop dashboard was the reason it didn’t work properly.

You see, it kept coming up with errors. It wasn’t intuitive. And many issues that users wanted to troubleshoot just couldn’t be addressed within the app.

Basically, it wasn’t living up to the reputation ManageWP has crafted over the years of being abundantly useful and easy to use.

We could do better.

The Brand New ManageWP App 

After the team figured out what was wrong with the previous incarnation of the ManageWP app, they set to work on building something better. And boy, did they deliver!

The app is a streamlined version of the desktop dash, offering only the most essential tools and resources you’d need to effectively manage your sites on-the-go. The features include:

You do need to be an active user of the ManageWP.com service to make use of this app, so if you haven’t already done so, you’ll want to setup an account on our site first.

What Are You Waiting For?!

Developing an app for ManageWP has been a learning experience. And while things might not have gotten started out on the right foot, it’s all coming together now. And I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the result.

Have you downloaded the new and improved app yet? If so, what do you think? We’d love to hear your feedback!

    Hi, is this still available in the US? I know a new version will be released next year but I was hoping the old version might still be around. Thanks.

      Sorry, no mobile app is available anywhere at the moment.

    Hey guys,

    Firstly, love the software!

    Secondly, do you have any plans to release the app for the UK audience?

    1. Nemanja Aleksic

      Thanks, Paddy!

      This is an old app, we’re planning to release a new one globally in 2017.

  3. Felipe Castro

    you have plans to deliver the app in apple stores outside the US?

    I still haven’t been able to logon via the app. Works in chrome browser on the same device so I know that user/pass is correct

    Finally tried this on a new HTC One M8, and it looks nice. However, I don’t see much use for it.

    My primary need would be to restore from a backup. Backups should be automated, not manual. I can’t imagine why I’d run updates from a phone with no restore ability. So, that leaves analytics and comments, which is interesting, but not so useful.

    So far, this new app isn’t any better than the old app. I keep getting errors on login. The mobile app has never delivered a good experience and it doesn’t appear to have changed in that regard. Very disappointed. Still.

    At first I thought “Why would I need another app on my smartphone to manage my mobile sites?” but after reading this post I changed my mind.

    Because I realised that I could manage all my WP sites when it was convenient anywhere and at any time. Unfortunately I have a Nokia C7, any ideas when you will have a Symbian version?

    I just downloaded the app and keep getting the message “some objects could not have been updated”. Is that just me or am I doing something wrong?

    It would also be very awesome if you guys could add the ability to respond to comments via the app. That’s the main thing I’d need to manage on the go, and sometimes ‘approval’ isn’t enough!

    Hi,

    Are you going to export your application on Windows Phone?

    BTW: this mobile resp, version of your site…lose the bouncing/follow logo..,it gets in the way of the forms.
