Newer, Better, Faster Mobile Features

Great news Jimdo users! We have revamped our Jimdo app and added some great new features you will love, based on all your feedback.

 

Ever wanted to keep track of your shop orders while you're out? Change your password on mobile? Or didn't think you had enough time to add a blog post on the run? Not any longer—we have made it faster and more user-friendly to use our mobile app for those spare ten minutes on the way to the office.


Video on the go

Video killed the radio star—and for good reason. So many companies are using video to get their message across and interact with their users and subscribers.

 

With our new video module for Android users, you can paste a link to a video (e.g. on YouTube or Vimeo) and it will display right on your website. 

 

Just find the video you want, tap on “Share”, then copy and paste the link into the video module on your Jimdo app. In the settings you can then adjust the size of the video display and just save!


Do more with your store

Shop users rejoice! Users can now manage their orders anytime and anywhere. 

 

Our new screen shows you the list of open orders and the order details for each transaction, so you can see the specifics of each order placed on your store. Users can also check out product, pricing, and billing information. The design is adaptive, so it will appear on one screen if you have a larger device e.g iPad or on separate screens with a smartphone.

 

As a nice extra, you also have the option to now call or email your client from the app if something urgent comes up! 

Even faster with 3D Touch

iOS users with an iPhone 6s or 7 now can use 3D Touch to navigate faster. Just apply more pressure on your screen to add elements, blog articles, and subpages simply with a tap. You can press on the Jimdo icon in the main menu on your device to open the following options:

  • Statistics
  • New blog post
  • New page
  • New element

New and improved gallery

Android users can now use the system image picker to get access to all photos recently taken on the smartphone.  

 

If you are more of a Dropbox or Google Photos type, you can also use these apps to upload your latest pics. Of course, you also have the option to just take a new photo—you can never have too many selfies!

 

 

Once you have chosen the photos you want, they then appear in your Gallery. Here you can edit the photos using Adobe’s SDK Image Editor and add a caption.


Profile screen extras

Times are a-changin’ and now so can your registered email address on our Jimdo app.

 

We have provided more information on the profile view and added the option to now edit your profile data using our app.

 

Our new, modern design makes your profile screen clearer, with an easy to use layout. So you can now use the following new options:

  • Change your main registered email address
  • Change your password

To check out these new features for yourself, just update your Jimdo app to the latest version and you are ready to go. This new update means that wherever you are, you will be able to upload the latest multimedia to your website using your smartphone. As well as easily checking and managing your orders on those busy days to save you time.


If you haven't tried our free app yet, now is a great time to get updated. In addition to our new features, did you know that Android users can also get notifications to stay updated of any changes? It's the perfect way to keep on top of your website when you're away from your desk. Stay tuned on our blog for more updates!

Let us know what you think of our latest update in the comments section!

    Hi Phil, I’m afraid we don’t offer the Jimdo app on Windows Phones, we do have the app available for iOS and Android. However, you will still be able to make any changes on the web version and these will be seen for users that view your website on mobile!

    This is an era of cell phones. Every company requires a mobile app these days to extend the business for the users. I am glad to hear that app is launched for the Jimdo users. Very informative post but are they launching the app for all devices or just for particular mobile devices.
