Wrike’s Android app allows you to stay on top of your projects and connect with your team on the go. The application is available as a free download and supported by Android smartphones and tablets running version 4 or later.
Please note that Wrike does not support mobile browsers; hence our [Android/iOS] App is the best option for using Wrike on mobile.
By default, in the bottom menu of the app you can switch between the following sections:
- Inbox allows you to keep up with updates. You can find all incoming, sent, and archived notifications there as well as the Activity tab.
- Starred contains your starred folders, projects, and tasks.
- My to-do shows the tasks you are assigned to.
- Browse allows you to navigate between your spaces, search for items, and access all other projects and folders in the account. To find a task, folder, or project, type its name into the search option at the top of the screen.
- Tap on “More” in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
- Tap on the arrow icon above “More.”
- The “Navigation settings” is open. From here you can:
- Drag and drop items to delete them from your bottom menu.
- Drag and drop items to add them to the bottom menu.
- Hide titles in the bottom bar by tapping on the slider.
Please note: “More” can’t be removed from the bottom menu.
- Tap on “Browse” in the bottom menu to see the spaces you’ve joined earlier.
- Scroll down to find “Explore Spaces” and tap on it to see the list of spaces in your account.
- To join or leave a space, tap on its name in the list, then tap on the three-dot menu icon in the upper-right corner and on Join or Leave Space.

*Users who have an account with the Wrike for Professional Services package and Wrike Resource add-on can track time on the go in the Android app's Timesheets. Wrike connects your Timesheets with Google Calendar to easily add time spent on meetings and other scheduled tasks. The app automatically offers to integrate your Google Calendar when you open Timesheets. Additionally, in Timesheets you can see billable and non-billable time totals, a weekly summary of tracked time, and highlights for tasks that require your attention.
You can view existing dashboards and widgets but can’t create new or edit existing ones.
- Tap on “More” in the bottom navigation menu.
- Select “Dashboards.”
- The name of the dashboard is listed at the top of the view, and the name of the widget is displayed in blue underneath the dashboard’s name.
View a different dashboard: Tap the name of the dashboard you’re currently looking at (listed at the top of the view) and select a different dashboard from the list.

You can view task and project reports from Android, but you can’t create new reports or edit existing ones.

- Select ”Reports.”

When working offline you can access folders, projects, and reports of which data has been stored on your phone. This means that you can access folders, projects, and reports which you've opened during your current session (since you last logged in)*. You'll also be able to open tasks (but not task description fields) that live in those folders and projects, even if you didn’t open a particular task.
Create and Edit
Once offline you'll be able to work with cached data and make changes as you normally would. When you connect to the internet again, your changes are synced.
While offline you can:
- Create tasks, folders, and projects.
- Edit existing tasks (add dates and assignees) in folders and projects you opened while online.
- Edit descriptions of tasks you opened while online.
- Submit requests.
- Reorder tasks in folders and projects that you’ve opened while online to change their priority (sort tasks by priority to do it). Your changes are synced when you connect to the internet again.
All changes are synced when you connect to the internet.
You can add any, or all, of our app’s Android widgets to the start screen of your smartphone:
- The Inbox widget shows the most recent Inbox notifications.
- The Task List widget that works like a Dashboard widget helps you focus on a specific list of tasks.
