Blogging from a Mobile Device

You can post to your Typepad blog directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android, or other mobile device.

Posting Options

Post by Email

Each blog and album within your Typepad account has a secret email address. You can use the email application on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad to email posts directly to your blog. At Settings > Post By Email, you can get the secret email address for your account. Learn more.

You can also post to your blog by sending a text message to the secret email address.

URLs included in the email will be active links, and multimedia files attached to the email (e.g. images, mp3s, videos) will be embedded within the published post. Formatting and HTML applied to the email will be stripped in the published post.

Mobile Browser

On your smartphone or tablet, you can use your preferred mobile browser to sign in to Typepad and edit your blog.

Open your preferred browser (e.g. Safari, Google, Chrome) and navigate to typepad.com/dashboard. Then, you'll be prompted to sign in.

All mobile devices which include a web browser application are supported. For Apple iOS, recommend using the Safari browser on your device.


With smartphones, you will have the ability to publish posts, manage posts and comments, and view statistics. A lighter Rich Text editor is available allowing you to upload multimedia files, applying formatting, and insert links on the go easier.


On a tablet, you will have the same Typepad experience as on a personal computer or laptop, including ability to edit the design and full Rich Text editor.
