Say Hello to the New Jetpack Mobile App

Put WordPress in your pocket with the new Jetpack mobile app.

As we settle into 2023, we’ve been thinking about ways to help you get the most out of your WordPress site throughout the year. That’s where the new Jetpack mobile app comes in! 

We know inspiration doesn’t wait for you to be sitting at your desk. It can strike anywhere. With the new Jetpack mobile app, you have the freedom to snap a photo to post while out on a walk, begin drafting your Bloganuary entry on your morning commute, or make tweaks to your content while on your lunch break.

Inspiration, we’re ready for you!

What’s more, the app brings the tools you need to manage and grow your site right to your fingertips: 

  • Understand how your content is performing and know what’s resonating with your audience using Stats and Insights.
  • Reply to comments on the go, see when your traffic is booming, and stay engaged with your audience with Notifications.
  • Discover new bloggers and catch up with your favorite sites using the Reader.

We’re constantly working on new ways to improve the Jetpack app and make it the best possible way to WordPress on the go. Daily blogging prompts to help spark different content ideas are an example of one recent feature we’re excited to continue iterating on. In addition, you can now use the app to log into WordPress.com on your computer simply by scanning a QR code.

Have ideas for features or improvements you’d like to see within the app? We’re all ears! Let us know in the comments below.


FAQ

What’s the difference between the WordPress and the Jetpack apps?

Your favorite Jetpack-powered features from the WordPress app – including Stats, Notifications, and the Reader – have a new home: the Jetpack app! These features will soon be removed from the WordPress app so that its focus will be on essential user and publishing tools. With the Jetpack app, you can expect the same attention to core features like managing and editing content, as well as next-level tools to grow your audience on a trusted platform.

How do I migrate my data and settings from the WordPress app to the Jetpack app?

If you have the latest version of the WordPress app installed, your data and settings will be automatically transferred to the Jetpack app. Data that will be transferred includes locally stored content, saved posts, and other in-app preferences.

Simply download the Jetpack app and you’ll be “auto-magically” logged in with all your content in place.

Is there an additional cost?

The Jetpack app is free to download and you can continue to use the same features that you enjoy with the WordPress app, at no additional cost.

Why are there two apps, and which should I use?

WordPress comes in more than one flavor and serves a diverse range of site administration needs. After listening to a lot of feedback around varying expectations, we settled on creating two options for you to WordPress on the go:

  1. The WordPress app will focus on WordPress’ core functionality. If you’re looking for the essential tools you need to publish on the go, with support for offline editing and the ability to upload media straight from your phone’s camera roll, then this may be the app for you.
  1. The Jetpack app is the premium mobile publishing experience for our super-connected world. With it, you’ll get all the essential tools that come with the WordPress app, plus a suite of features for growing your site. Track the performance of your content with Stats, get notified about comments and reactions with Notifications, and discover content and join communities with the Reader. Whether you’re new to publishing on the Internet or a seasoned veteran, have a WordPress site already or want to start a new one — download the Jetpack app today for a great set of tools to start or grow!

Either app is available for you to use. Once you’ve decided which app is best for you, please delete the other. Managing your site across both apps is currently unsupported and may lead to issues like data conflicts.

We’re excited to offer different apps to suit different needs and will be sharing further details over the coming weeks. In the meantime, we want to hear from you! Please feel welcome to comment on this post with any questions or feedback you may have.

    The new app sounds promising, but yikes 😱 the idea of deleting the old sends shivers up my spine. How can I be sure all my content is saved before I delete and what process do I use to delete safely and does the new app come with an additional cost?

      If you have the latest version of the WordPress app installed, you’ll notice “Jetpack powered” banners at the bottom of some sections, including Stats, Notifications, and Reader. Tap one of those banners to see the option to “Switch to the new Jetpack app”. Follow the prompts to install the app from there.

      When you follow those steps, you’ll be automatically logged into the Jetpack app. Any content or settings that are locally saved will also be automatically transferred, so that the WordPress app can be safely deleted. We’ve got your back!

      To answer your question around cost, too: The Jetpack app is free to download and you can continue to use the same features that you enjoy with the WordPress app at no cost. 🙂

      Thank you for these excellent questions! We’ll go ahead to update this post’s FAQ with our answers. 🙌

      👋 Jen! Yes, happy to report that saved posts will be migrated. Other local settings that will be migrated (in addition to locally stored content) include blogging reminders and quick start progress.

      The migration magic was included in version 21.3 of the Android app and 21.4 of the iOS app, so please make sure you’re not on an older version before downloading the Jetpack app. A good way to confirm whether your version of the WordPress app supports this “auto migration” is to tap the in-app “Jetpack powered” banner. You’ll only see the “Switch to the new Jetpack app” prompt in versions that support it.

      Hope that’s clear, and thanks again for these excellent questions!

    I’m curious about the wording choice “free to download” versus “free to use”.

    Are there premium features in the Jetpack App that will carry additional cost? Is any advertising included within the app?

    Feedback: the above description could use a table showing what features/abilities will be available with each app. For example, it sounds like the current WordPress app will no longer have the option to show Stats.

    The above could also be interpreted as notifications and the ability to respond to comments being removed from the current WordPress app.

    Likewise, it’s unclear if you’ll be able to upload photos from your phone to the media library using the JetPack app. It sounds like it, but not explicitly said.

    Again, a simple three-column table listing features in the first column, and then a checkmark or X in a column for the current WordPress app, and likewise in a column for the Jetpack app, would make it clear what users can expect from each app and help them decide between the two apps.

    Perhaps there’s already such a table available elsewhere; if so, a link would be appreciated.

    If not, I assume developers already have such a table, so sharing it shouldn’t involve too much extra work.

    Thank you.

      Thanks for your feedback!

      For clarity, the Jetpack app is free to use and doesn’t include in-app advertisements.

      We’re still planning our 2023 roadmap, and it’s possible in-app purchases will be a part of our plans. The driving goal would be to offer features that bring most value to users, and we’re keen to hear any ideas or feedback. Any in-app purchases would be optional, with the currently free features remaining free to use.

      As to the differences between the two apps: there will be a couple more posts to this blog in the following weeks. These posts will include further details about the future of both apps. As part of that, a table is a great idea, thank you! I’ll share this idea with the team for our next post, which will be more focused on the differences between the WordPress and Jetpack apps.

      In general, and to address your specific points, the Jetpack app will include all the features that you currently find in the WordPress app (including the option to upload photos from your phone). Any features that are currently labelled as “Jetpack powered” within the WordPress app (including Stats and Notifications) will eventually only be available in the Jetpack app.

      I appreciate this is a lot of information to digest! I hope that future posts will provide additional clarity and answer any remaining questions.

        I’m very suspicious of these new apps and platforms these days. It’s all about raking in the money from the most menial of task. Wouldn’t surprise me if someone came up with an app that charge people for breathing.
        So what happens when we get so dependent on these apps and the greed instinct decide they will value price their products. Then living will become too expensive to afford. What kind of world are we creating where only the people who can pay will be able to live?

        We may see this suggestion as absurd but it’s a real possibility. Our technological advances have outstripped our moral and human quality and this is reasons for concern. What this boils down to, I’m afraid to take on the new app that might be filled with loopholes and hidden ways to rob me of the little open access I have where I’m not paying every time I click on something. This is very very sad for the greatest country on the earth. The most logical question is great for who and how long?

      You can absolutely continue to use the WordPress app if you wish to. If you want to try the Jetpack app, though, it’s worth noting that you can delete the WordPress app from your device after downloading it.

      👋 @redshift, I hear you on the confusion here. I see from your blog that you’re already familiar with the different types of WordPress, so wanted to share that the initial announcement around this change was made to the WordPress.org community here:

      https://make.wordpress.org/mobile/2022/07/27/refocusing-the-wordpress-app-on-core-features/

      That announcement digs a bit deeper into the reasoning behind this change and may help clarify things.

      Moving forward, it won’t be necessary to use two apps. You’re welcome to continue using the WordPress app without the Jetpack-powered features. If you do decide to switch to the Jetpack app, you can then delete the WordPress app.

        I use the “jetpack features” in the WordPress app today. I don’t want to install another app. I disagree with the points made in that post – this is *more* confusing and a *worse* contributor experience. Just hide jetpack if the site doesn’t have it. I really don’t understand the WordPress development decisions for the last few years…

      Alright, this honestly is confusing to comprehend. However, assuming I wouldn’t lose drafts and posts I thought possibly I’ll download the jetpack app. Figured as long as I’ve got the original WordPress app still up and running that nothing too permanent could occur. Plus frankly the WordPress app as it stands now isn’t exactly self explanatory. I have no idea how to use basic features and it’s been months since I first began using it!! Even when I ask the community for directions, it’s just not very clear to me. Also occasionally I’ll hit “save” and then wait…wait..wait for whatever I’m writing to actually save. Seems like it’s very sluggish sometimes. I wonder if the jetpack is straightforward enough for even me to benefit… hmmm 🤔

          I’m sorry to hear that your saved posts were lost as part of the migration. Do you still have the WordPress app (with the saved posts) installed on your device? If so, can you navigate to Me → App Settings to confirm the version that’s installed? The migration magic described in this blog post will only work if you have version 21.4 or newer installed.

          Assuming you have the latest version of the WordPress app installed, I recommend deleting the Jetpack app and going through the migration flow again.

          I also see an open ticket from you in our support system, if your saved posts still aren’t migrated after following those steps, please reply to our latest email and our team will troubleshoot further with you from there.

    I’m wondering how to migrate to the Jetpack app across multiple devices? I just migrated from WordPress to Jetpack on my phone, but also have the WordPress app on my iPad. Should I just follow the same procedure and migrate from the WordPress to the Jetpack app on my iPad, or is there a better way to migrate secondary devices?

    I’ve used the WordPress app for years and so part of me is a bit sad to see it being split into two separate apps, but I definitely do see the differences in use cases and see how the second app can help address that. Going forward, I hope that the same level of attention to accessibility that the WordPress app has received will also be given to the Jetpack app.

      To add to Jerry’s reply here: Data that is not synced (such as locally saved content and bookmarked posts in the Reader) will also be transferred as long as you have the latest version of the WordPress app installed.

      One good way to confirm whether your version of the WordPress app supports “auto migration” is to tap one of the in-app “Jetpack powered” banners. You’ll find these banners at the bottom of sections including Stats and Reader. If you tap the banner, you’ll only see the “Switch to the new Jetpack app” prompt in versions that support migration.

    I have a self hosted WordPress site, plus I pay jetpack to ensure my posts also appear in Reader.

I reply to comments from both my mobile and my desktop. I still want to be able to see my stats from wherever I am.

The Jetpack app will also be the best place for Jetpack features like stats and notifications, so if you enjoy those, we’d recommend migrating as outlined in the post and using the Jetpack app going forward.

    I have a question about the consequences of switching to Jetpack for a user who has two WP sites.
    I have two sites. One is devoted to Haiku style of verse, the other one is more general in nature.
    Both sites were set up using the same gmail account but each site has a different username.
    If I migrate one of these, will I still be able to migrate the other?
    I ask this because you say
    ‘Managing your site across both apps is currently unsupported and may lead to issues like data conflicts’. Given the common gmail heritage, you’ve got me more than a bit worried.
    I don’t want to lose either of my sites and would definitely appreciate guidance on this matter.
    By the way, I would consider combining the two WP sites into one if it helps with an easier migration to Jetpack but would definitely need guidance. (For example, if I logged in using my gmail details, might that facilitate the migration of the posts contained in these two separate username sites?)

    On a related matter, you use the term ‘saved posts’ and I don’t know what this means. Does ‘saved’ include Published posts only? And what about Draft posts? Are Drafts within saved? (There’s a total of around 300 published posts in total in these two separate accounts and probably 20 drafts).
    I know that I’m asking a few questions but hope you can guide me through the issues around migration of two-username accounts and also clatify the meaning of saved.
    Kind regards

      Hi! I believe this means if you’re trying to use both apps to manage a single site (or both apps to manage both sites) you may run into troubles. We recommend using one or the other. You can use either app to manage both sites. Make sure your post are saved (at least as drafts) on the WordPress app, then you can open the Jeptack app to confirm everything transferred for you.

      Also, you should be able to connect both sites with a single account if you’d like, or you can merge them if that’s your preference. If your sites are hosted here, I’d recommend reaching out to support: let us know what you have in mind with combining or not combining and we can make recommendations.

    Why fix it if it ain´t broken?
    Can´t say I understand the importance, let alone necessity, of this jetpack.
    Mail/news coming from jetpack instead of WordPress confuses the normal uder/receiver. I was close to marking it as spam.
    You had a brand, now you´re undermining it. Why?

      We’re moving Jetpack features into the Jetpack app. If you’re using your own WordPress installation with Jetpack, you can decide which features to use.

      Good question: both apps have publishing tools. If you enjoy Jetpack features like stats and notifications, you’ll want to use the Jetpack app, regardless of whether your site is hosted here. Hoping this helps!

    Please add support for more blocks into the Jetpack editor, like categories, archives, etc…all those blocks that are already available when editing a post or a page through a web browser.

      Hi! Right now the WordPress app has several features that are Powered by Jetpack. Those features will soon be removed from the WordPress app so that its focus will be on essential user and publishing tools. If you’re using stats, notifications, and other powered-by-Jetpack features, you’ll want the Jetpack app. Hoping that helps!

    I was always told there is no silly questions. I never got a response as to if this app could be download at any future date, if the need is not seen now? Will the other app faze out?

        Hello Supernovia, thanks for your response. I’ll be sure to download the app. I read that there’s no need to worry everything will remain the same as it is on the WordPress app once download to the Jetpack. So, I guess I’ll be good to go.
        Have a great day, and hey, thanks again for your response.

    I noticed a comment critical of your changes to WP was a link unfound when I wanted to endorse the criticism that you are offering nothing new but removing existing WP functionality for reasons that are not really clear.

      Many of the WordPress app features have actually been powered by Jetpack. Those features are now in the Jetpack app, along with the core posting features you need.

      The WordPress app itself will focus more on core features going forward.

    Hi! I’ve changed to the new JP app, but then I’ve lost the stats widget on my phone. Will it be back in a future version? TIA.

      Hey there, thanks for letting us know! Stats widgets should continue working on both Android and iOS. However, if you’re using iOS, there has been a recent change where we stopped supporting older iOS13 widgets. The new widgets can be added by clicking “+” at the upper-left corner of Today View. You can also check Apple’s guide on different ways to add widgets: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207122.

      Let us know if it helps!

    This news is all very confusing, and reading this post made it more unclear. Once you guys can clearly explain the differences between these two apps and why people should use one over the other, please let us know.
