Parse.ly iOS mobile app


Note

We recommend the fully responsive browser experience to access your Parse.ly Dashboard from a mobile device.

If you’ve tried accessing your dashboard from a mobile browser and you still want to try our iOS mobile app, then you may download it in Apple’s App Store. After downloading the app, log in to access your dashboard.

Although a Parse.ly Android app is unavailable, you can load the web dashboard on mobile browsers.

Device Support

The Parse.ly iOS app supports iPhones, iPads, and iPods Touch that are running iOS 8 and later versions.

How to Use the Parse.ly iOS App

Main Screen

View a graph of page views for the current day as well as site metrics like visitors, page views, social and search referrers, and engaged minutes if available. You can view metrics and top posts for the current day or the last 10 minutes. Sort the top post listing by tapping on each metric button.

The real-time graph shows page views per minute. You can see how today (green) compares to the eight-week average (gray).
