Beware of New Templates
by Dat boi00999 on 2020/08/13 17:42
Even though the app shows you new templates (version 7.1), you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FULLY EDIT your site from just the app. If plan on adding and removing pictures from the app, use older templates.
Links Cannot Be Edited
by Ya Yev on 2020/08/12 18:47
Just says unable to render component. There is literally no option to even type a link. Update: I already contacted support and they said this feature does not work. Also there is no way to insert buttons in general. This lacks so many basic features.
Editing Page Feature Not Working
by Jordaneric499 on 2020/08/10 15:49
I was planning to use square space to create a photography page but while I was editing, it kicked me off and wouldn’t letter me edit anymore after that. I’m just glad I was on the trail and didn’t purchase yet. Would love to continue to use but won’t until this is fixed.
Squarespace for the Win
by basham57 on 2020/08/07 13:13
Don’t tell anyone...I’m a senior designer at a WordPress agency, but off the clock I create all my personal and freelance websites with Squarespace. It’s fun for designers like me and all my clients love how easy it is!
More editing tools
by New York Times! on 2020/08/01 20:28
Squarespace is amazing but mobile needs more editing tools.
Not great
by BonnieRue on 2020/07/26 05:13
With the update I lost the ability to insert links on my website. Never had an issue with it before but after contacting customer service it seems this is just an issue I will have to learn to live with. If you ever anticipate traveling and wanting to manage your website from the convenience of your iPad I would not choose Squarespace. You will not be able to fully edit it through your web browser or the app. Very frustrating.
Theres a million other sites that do this, but better

doesn’t update website
by JPMurray77 on 2020/07/17 19:01
Horribly slow to then not save changes. I cannot update my website with this app update. Complete disappointment.
Sooo faaarrrr soooo goood
by Midnight1001001 on 2020/07/08 23:33
So far so good. I saw a few comments saying te app wasn’t all that good when it came down to touching up your website on the fly. I’m using the iPhone X and so far I have no problem and have full functionality as if I was on the website. Although I am only doing Minsk thingslike changing text and what not.
Worst App
by sjtryon on 2020/07/05 17:54
Unbelievably annoying app. This app takes what should be a two minute process (adding a post to a blog) and turns it into an afternoon process. Tags, Categories, & other settings...good luck finding them without first saving as a draft and then pulling up the menu. Add tags...plan to scroll through the unsorted list to tap them off. Don’t even think about typing a few letters to find the tags you want. And on it goes. They provided wysiwyg, but in the process, complicated the entire process of working with your site. It’s far easier to just not use the app and do everything once you have the opportunity to get to your desktop computer. I really expected better from the Squarespace team. I would doubt any of them use this app.

Want to love it but there is no portfolio support
by NeoSailorCosmos on 2020/06/29 18:58
Will we be able to use this app to edit portfolios in the future? I love the idea of portfolios and use them on my website but I can’t edit them on my iOS devices which is very disappointing.
Not tablet compatible
by Liv-G on 2020/06/16 22:57
I was just looking to adjust my workflow by downloading the app on my ipad so i wouldn't have to reupload images to my computer then on the sote, but editing what I already have seems impossible on there. I just wanted to rearrange my gallery but following the instructions on squarespace did nothing. I cant “tap and hold” bc it doesn't register im trying to move a block or in the block. It also puts a caption block on the top of my screen that follows me so i cant get around it which is visually annoying. The squarespace videos for moving images also only does the computer version, not mobile or tablet commands.
Can no longer make a blog post...
by chri5dub12 on 2020/06/15 01:36
Update: The typing issues seem to be related to the new Apple Magic Keyboard. You have to use your finger to tap in the text box to be able to start typing. Please optimize this app for the Magic Keyboard. I’ve been away from Squarespace for a while. I set up a new site via Squarespace for a tech blog and I noticed the old Blog app is no longer there. So I got directed to use this Squarespace app. Now, I cannot type within a new “post”, I can only create titles. Please give us the blog app back :( Chris presscross.com
Please fix the bugs
by FlyingGorillasHusband on 2020/06/11 21:48
I’ve been looking for a place to make websites and I thought well why not try square space? Everybody knows that square space is the best place to make websites, right? Well.. I’ve experienced a lot of glitches and bugs throughout this app and all though I want to try it out its so glitchy that I can’t do anything on it. Please fix these bugs! (Also I will not be emailing and places to talk to somebody about these problems so)
Please add cursor support
by Riley Bounds on 2020/06/07 19:50
Please add support for cursors, like the one in the Magic Keyboard. As of now, the only way to select and edit text is by finger or stylus.
Service wont work. Dont buy
by Christian Elton on 2020/06/04 00:37
Every time I try to edit my site I get a 503 service unavailable error. Can’t believe a product that costs $46/month has these elementary issues. Both on web and on IOS. Do not buy.

It’s getting worse
by A Musician on 2020/06/01 18:26
A previous version of this app was cumbersome and glitchy, but I could use it to make cursory updates to my site. A new version renders it useless. I can’t even add new photos to existing galleries. Some of the buttons don’t even respond when I tap them. Device is an iPad pro. I contacted support last week and never heard back. Bummer. This is the only negative part of the Squarespace experience for me, but it’s a significant detractor.
Today..
by HONEST la COOK on 2020/05/31 01:30
I’m updating my website from my phone and it’s not working because it says “connect to internet “ i’m connected and it still keeps saying it won’t save.
Don’t work ... better listen to us
by toyatoyadon on 2020/05/28 14:07
Y’all need to fix this app or people gone leave. That’s just as simple as it go. The app don’t work on mobile at all which is frustrating. To many glitches and bugs ..
Second review and it should be a half star
by shindoverse on 2020/05/26 15:28
I still can’t use the app to blog from my iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). I have written a review before addressing this issue and I had a few support tickets on Squarespace directly to address the complaint. None of the support personnel seem to really listen to the problems stated by their customers. If they do, whatever is said doesn’t seem to get passed on to the developers. The last time I went through the support line, the first support person gave me what can be found on the support page for web-based issues. After I mentioned he failed to give me an appropriate answer to my complaint, I was then given another person who tried to address the app issues. However, the problems still remain and no deleting and reinstalling the app will solve it. All I want from this complaint and the going directly to Squarespace’s support is for this issue to be fixed. I should not be forced to use my computer if you offer this app for my devices. Before you decided to streamline the Squarespace app, you had a perfectly good blogging app. Don’t tell me to go to support again. Please listen to this and fix your bugs. Because I am ready to cancel my account. I don’t want to do this because I do like the website I created with your tools. However, I will not want to continue using Squarespace if it is too hard to use. Especially if the tools you provide make it impossible.
Perfect

Doesn’t work
by Djedi25 on 2020/05/20 16:16
Simply doesn’t work. Tried to make a blog post and it’s nothing but a black screen. Same for several other attempts at new pages. Ok for editing already made pages I guess but that’s not what I needed to do

Doesn’t even deserve one star, super glitchy app.
Service
by owner russowatch on 2020/05/10 18:51
I have message them four times to correct an issue with my website and still three days latter after my first email no response back I am a lack for words
Too glitchy.
by 481292 on 2020/05/10 18:02
There are so many glitches in this app. I’ve sent countless emails to Squarespace about it and I get the same responses on a loop, restart the app, restart my phone, we’ll send this to the developers. But none of the issues have been fixed and there hasn’t even been an update for two months now. It’s really frustrating trying to use this app when you have work to do. I have to toggle between the mobile version on safari or chrome and the app and because they’re both pretty terrible, it’s almost impossible to get much work done without a computer, which can’t always be brought along. That’s the whole purpose of the app but it continues to let me down. It’s even more frustrating because this isn’t a free service, I pay a lot to be able to do my work and can’t. The time wasted writing this could be spent writing my content but I can’t edit my work on the app so here I am. One year later: same glitches, same work and progress being lost and wasted trying with this app.
Helping? Or not?
by djpRun on 2020/05/07 02:28
Unfortunately, the current version won’t let me see chat conversations with the support team. I’m trying to fix something with my site and the support team responded (yay!) but I have no idea what they said. I’m finding the whole app experience completely frustrating. And... why can I see my help tickets on my website? If it’s an app only thing, it should work.
Love it

Garbage

Incredibly buggy and you’re never quite sure what is going to to go wrong next. I love losing my work randomly if I try to switch between apps and don’t save.
Oh boy!

Great but sometimes you can’t edit home page
by forcedtohustle on 2020/04/07 19:11
Besides the fact you can’t edit home page all the time without it saying “make sure you’re connected to the internet” it’s a pretty good app
Not user friendly
by kukakukakuka on 2020/04/05 22:19
Meh.
Confusing and clumsy
by Mikstache on 2020/04/03 00:55
Is exactly how this app works. I feel like using Squarespace is the same as having duck tape holding my business together. Nice try guys
Works great for a web design novice
by Ngigz on 2020/03/30 03:49
I consider myself to be computer savvy but have no experience in web design. Squarespace helped me create a great website for a local medical practice. It has been easy to update since launch.
Doesn’t work

Rapid battery drain and heat
by Denster2u on 2020/03/27 16:09
My iPad mini 5 experiences rapid battery drain and feels hot while using this app. My battery drained 25% in 47 minutes. This is unacceptable. Please fix your app.
I love it.

What is this
by Savv Simmons on 2020/03/22 19:26
Why is this site so hard to use both for myself and for my clients? I have to constantly jump through hoops with this app and its just not worth the trouble.
Bring back the blog app
by CultiKerri on 2020/03/19 14:42
I have had so many issues with writing my blogs in this app. It’s slow, closes out of things, won’t allow me to upload with the grid. Considering how much I pay for my squarespace site, it would be great if the app could work better. It looks fancy but it’s not very functional. Please bring the simple blog app that was discontinued because this “new” app.
Terrible app
by GiacamoCoreleone on 2020/03/12 20:35
This app will not recognize my account and password. I recently HAD to change the password to a new one and now “they” tell me it’s NFG! I request a link to change it AGAIN and NO email is sent. I’ve been using it for years. Have the Russians or the GOP taken it over?
AMAZING

I love the convenience Squarespace has to offer! Would love to sponsor Squarespace on my photography account @sierrasphoto__ on Instagram!
LOVE ❤️ It but ...
by adv2k169 on 2020/03/11 16:22
I have been wanting a full scale Squarespace app for years and with this we finally we got it . I am on iPhone 8+ and it runs so smooth and fast and I can do essentially anything that I can do on desktop. It’s interface is simple and works well. The issues : 1) I cannot change picture file names . This is critical for SEO and it’s crappy that I can’t do it on the go. In early versions of this app I could but not now. I even used iPad version and it always gives a glitch . 2) I cannot make new tags / categories in the mobile app (iPhone or iPad) . This is also huge for SEO . I can select ones that I made before but I cannot make new ones from scratch .
Now I can edit my calendar!
by FaderCrusader on 2020/03/06 04:16
The main feature I was looking for in an app is finally here. It’s nice to be able to edit my entire site from my phone, but the only page I edit very regularly is the calendar. I’m so happy I no longer need to be using a desktop to add events!
Great when it works
by grhafer30 on 2020/03/06 02:57
But not when it doesn’t.
Really really slow,odd UI
by Jem Wong on 2020/03/05 20:03
I miss the old discontinued Squarespace Blog app, simple and easy to use. They now force you to use this one which provides so many features that I’d barely use or just find it easier to do on PC. I hate that the big title text box overlaps the main content text box, not to mention all the loading time you have to wait. It’s really a test for my patience. I’m sad how square space has become. Be simple, be simple, be simple.
Billing
by a-znope on 2020/03/01 15:01
Would like to be able to deal with billing on the fly rather than signing into the website. App doesn’t allow for billing updates/changes.
Terrible scam can’t cancel subscription
by KiwiLillia on 2020/02/26 19:56
No customer support and can’t cancel subscription had to call my bank and black list them. Ridiculous I’m so angry. Don’t download
Where’s my offline portfolio?
by stylee on 2020/02/19 17:26
This is a horrible replacement for The SQUARESPACE portfolio app. How am I meant to show my book to people without WiFi now? This is lame.
I’m trying to get a sponsor
by DiscoloredWatermelon on 2020/02/19 02:23
I started my YouTube channel about half a year ago and Im still very small and I want to get into sponsoring and this application seems very intriguing so If you guys are down I’ll try to do it so tell me if you can can’t or don’t want to it will be fine.
Reviews made me do it
by Nothing to really do on 2020/02/17 08:38
I was going to use this for my business, but due to the amount of negative responses and a lack of responses from the developer, I decided to go somewhere else. I don’t want to put my time into something I’ll regret in the long run.
I’ve fallen in love with Squarespace again!
by Integrix on 2020/02/15 05:54
Very impressed. This app does everything one should expect—and more—when “on the go.” Thank you, Squarespace, for making this marketer’s life easier!
Underwhelming and buggy
by zzzsportsfan on 2020/02/12 05:58
I wish I could like this app because I would really love the ability to update my site from my phone. But every time I open the app I’m quickly reminded of its limitations. For example, you can’t edit an event from the app. Really? Another example, when I have a summary block, I cannot change what gallery it displays. It allows me to change it, but then the change never occurs. Similarly, it looks like I can alter the tag filtering the gallery, but that doesn’t work either. Both of these features work on the desktop product, but not from mobile. It looks like you can edit these things, but when you try to save them they NEVER SAVE! Super frustrating. Stop pretending to have functionality that doesn’t work!
Upload new images from the TOP
by IeiSekssmdksismsjsk on 2020/02/11 00:45
Using this app to update my website wouldn’t be such a pain in my rear if every new image I upload to my gallery appeared at the top and not the bottom. I have to drag each one to the top. How has this not been addressed yet?! People see most recent images first when they visit websites. For Christ’s sakes.
Love it, but do want cover page options back!
by Villaltayc on 2020/02/07 18:46
That’s just about it, love the ease of use and interface.
Buggy
by G3minike on 2020/02/01 14:13
There is no place to manage inventory and the photo look up does not show all albums or shared albums on lookup.
From hmmm to wow
by Treasi on 2020/02/01 07:44
I remember when this app use to be ... not so useful (to be polite), so I stopped using using it - it was like an empty shell of an app. But after a few years break (I’ve been a long term squarespace customer), I tentatively re-downloaded it and have been so impressed by how it’s evolved and what I can do inside! The app is really well designed and easy to use. Considering its working on a small screen, it also doesn’t feel like a I’m going to make a mistake and accidentally bump a button that publishes it live when I’m. It ready. So it feels ‘safe’ to use over the desktop editing. Thanks team!
Crashes constantly
by toomuchtimebeingwasted on 2020/01/31 16:44
Can’t even open without crashing , wait till the bugs are out. Deleted this twice . Nothing wrong with the previous version at all ... Update 01/30/2020 , ok the updated version is now stable, no more crashing , seems to work fine so far ..guess the developers listened to the moaning ....
Bug-infested with minimal functionality
by Cameron0208 on 2020/01/30 06:13
Squarespace is not good with mobile. Period. The mobile website is awful. The mobile app is awful. The number of m bugs that keep on piling up and make the app nearly unusable is ridiculous. For instance, when clicking to add, let’s say a page, that the pop-over that comes up is almost completely off the screen. The number of things you just CAN’T do in the app render it almost pointless. My personal favorite is the fact that the devs can’t seem to figure out how sliders work. Good lord. The bug has existed for months. Go to Design > Site Styles and try dragging a slider. Just TRY. Something so basic, yet these devs can’t figure it out. I would like the devs to inform me on how or why I’m supposed to trust SS - who can’t figure out mobile design AT ALL - for my site? Doesn’t give me a lot of faith for my mobile site when the site that it’s made on can’t figure out mobile sites themselves.
Awesome!!!
by oldschoolcat on 2020/01/28 01:12

Latest version fails to open
by kreygscott on 2020/01/26 22:39
Sadly this latest version will not open. No surprise here given the myriad of failed app support by so many developers. Maybe we need a complete reset of every aspect of technology and start a fresh.

App keeps crashing!

I literally downloaded, deleted and redownloaded the app like 5 times and it keeps crashing!
Not what I was looking for.
by BrigeMcQ on 2020/01/22 18:10
Although this app is helpful if I need to make a quick edit to my website (which I really don’t think will happen often) I was looking for an app to help me with messaging my customers and checking messages quickly that are sent through my website. Things like that.
No Functionality
by Kengaylord on 2020/01/19 17:50
This app is barely usable. It’s only marginally better than the web version on the iPad’s Safari. Here’s a list of what you can do, so far as I can tell: add sections to your website as long as it is one of Squarespaces cookie cutter sections. Add webpages, as long as it’s one of squarespaces garbage pre-formatted pages. Edit text, occasionally. Change pictures that are on their templates. Here are a couple of BASIC things you can’t do: Add custom blocks, like a text box. Edit the calendar event time and date on their own calendar page. I don’t have a computer and thought this would be a good option to use on my iPad Pro. Guess I was wrong. Don’t waste your time with the app.
Used to love it
by cimino521 on 2020/01/11 14:38
I feel taken advantage of and lied to by Squarespace. I used to love SS and so, I’ve been a loyal customer for many years. About a year ago or 2 I noticed they changed their pricing plans so I switched to a less expensive one. Only to find out that this included a sneaky new 3% (on top of the stripe fee!) fee for all commerce sales. When I attempted to switch back to my old plan that had no fee I was told I couldn’t, no exceptions and my once grandfathered in plan for being a loyal customer was now null and void. This is not how I would like to be treated being a long term client. I understand I made a mistake and will now read the fine print more slowly but I am a long term customer, I am an artist, please treat me as an individual and not as one in a heard of sheep. If they switch me back to my grandfathered in business plan without the 3% transaction fee I would be a happy camper. Until then, I’m very unhappy with them and plan on one day switching to another provider that doesn’t take a chunk of small artists’ earnings without stating in large print first.
Horrible app

IPad App Not Working
by diffbooth on 2020/01/04 10:29
Update: even after an update to fix iPad editing the app still won’t load pages 🙁 I have a 2018 iPad Pro 12.9. I had been using the app but not its completely non functioning. Deleted the app, restarted several times, re-downloaded the app, and nothing. Have three sites and none of them will load in the app but everything was working in November. What happened?
Still broken.
by @HeyEddie on 2020/01/04 00:46
If your goal was to edit one single letter on a page with this “fixed” update, think again. Another epic fail. Thanks Squarespace, for nothing.
Updates break iPad version under iOS 13

This is now the second update in the last few weeks that has failed to resolve an issue where you cannot edit any of your pages in the iPad app.
iPad app not working
by Shach84 on 2019/12/31 21:48
I’d give the iPhone app a 4 or 5 star rating, but the iPad app isn’t loading for me at all.
No copy edit
by iarts on 2019/12/31 02:51
Pretty much useless. I can edit my gallery page but not much else. pages w copy are blank.
Not useful
by MrSonnyJames on 2019/12/30 03:24
I pretty much depended on the Blog app to update my site from my iPad. Now that this streamlined app has replaced that as an option, I’m forced to use it. Except one thing. It doesn’t work. And every time I attempt to post a blog update, there’s a connection failure. This is the opposite of progress. SMH
Why do you need 3 different apps ?
by HausoFFashion.net on 2019/12/27 12:13
I have to toggle between 3 different apps to maintain my business and still not able to add new items from any of them. I have to add new products from a desktop. You have to pay $40 monthly for items that are included with other e-commerce platforms prime example Instagram and abandoned cart recovery? I already switched back to Shopify. Not paying $40 monthly and CSU even add new products from my mobile phone.
Awesome!!

by Jonathan Byrd on 2019/12/13 16:05
One star this morning. Can’t edit anything on my site. Tap the edit button and nothing happens.
Ugh
by Chdjdiemdhsisknsjk on 2019/12/03 05:05
I’m trying but it won’t let me create an account it says that I can ONLY login. Don’t make sense.
App is Not intuitive to edit pages as it once was
by Spencejw on 2019/12/02 02:20
I’m writing this after spending an inordinate amount of time trying to adjust my website from the app, unable to successfully select sections to edit at all. It amounts to too long wasted down a rabbit hole...
What’s the point?
by luckysmom34 on 2019/11/29 22:29
I downloaded the app to be able to edit pages on the go, but when I go to the ‘edit’ feature it says it’s not allowed on this app. What’s the point of having the feature if it’s useless?
Update
by Runwayaddict on 2019/11/27 12:49
With this new update things have improved, however I’m not sure how to publish my post anymore on the mobile app.
Still Big quirks with App.
by StoryboardC. on 2019/11/27 04:03
The Squarespace App finally did got better, but now has again slipped back.. Can’t add new categories or tags to blog posts nor file names without a error message. I also have been having problems logging in getting another error message as well. As a paying customer who uses the app to blog. I’m really disappointed with these bugs and now can’t even get on the desktop version via my phone.
Redesign Disaster
by bsgrozier on 2019/11/16 01:06
The redesigned app is worthless, impossible to navigate, and the farthest thing from intuitive in the history of apps.
Doesn’t work anymore
by Patrick Nelissen on 2019/11/14 05:51
After upgrading my iPhone 11 to the latest iOS version 13.2.2, the app doesn’t work anymore. This is frustrating as I have to use my old iPhone 6 (iOS 12) now to fulfill orders, etc. Hopefully Square van fix this annoying bug soon.
Editing tools don’t work or respond at all...
by jeebs68957 on 2019/11/13 15:48
Editing capabilities aren’t working at all, and there’s no way to even edit the text on pages. This app is pretty much useless to me.
Easy!
by Rachel from Orlando on 2019/11/12 12:57
Love the ease & simplicity
😐
by Celestia 💛 on 2019/11/10 19:00
This app used to be good. Now I can only post one photo at a time and just do the basics until I get home unless I have my laptop on me. Pretty annoying that there’s no option to change your actual webpages through the app...I can’t always access my computer Squarespace!
Working on the Go
by Megan7902 on 2019/11/10 08:18
I really enjoy being able to start and edit pages on the go. I can get my ideas down quickly and then work more in detail on the desktop. I haven’t been using the app for very long but it’s very easy to use especially if you learned Squarespace already on a browser. I’ve loved Squarespace for many years and will stick with them be a use of these type of features and improvements.
Not supported???
by KenyJor on 2019/11/07 18:03
Why have templates that the app can’t support?
Squarespace is my favorite.
by ישי Jesse on 2019/11/05 02:23
See title. (Wish I could edit audio on the app and wish audio albums could continue to play in the background)
Doesn’t work on iPhone XS 13.1.3
by akimsszk on 2019/11/04 21:27
Crush all the time when I was blogging
A waste of time
by Simply_Drena on 2019/11/01 17:41
Although I pay for my site. I am unable unable to use this app to post to my blog. Why would you upgrade the .com but not the app. At least I could write on the blog app. Now I can’t truly do nothing for the app 🤬🤬🤬 this truly makes not sense.
Love the app - suggestion to the developers
by RDBPhotoLLC on 2019/10/26 22:38
Love the app and the capabilities it has - only gripe is why can’t we have the ability to go landscape on iPhone?!? That is the one thing I miss about no longer having the portfolio app. When I want to show someone my photos on my phone I have to go to my website I order to get the full size image in landscape. I don’t want to keep having to do this multiple times a day... When can we expect this feature?
This app is made of spare parts
by Whocaresitsjustareview on 2019/10/22 12:37
I created a site recently, on version 7.1. Guess what. This app only supports squarespace 7.0. Its in the description. What sorta backwards pageantry is this? Can’t make your app work with the newest version of your own site? Nice execution, squarespace. You’re doing terrific.
Easy
by SixCentsPhotos on 2019/10/21 14:17
Downloaded the app and very pleased with the ease of use. Didn't feel I had to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.
Waaaay Better
by OnlyDavid on 2018/12/13 01:40
It is so ironic that SquareSpace works so hard to make sure webpages display correctly on any size display: phones, tablets, or desktops, yet, editing SquareSpace webpages in anything less than a desktop device with mouse or trackpad doesn’t work. Forget about trying to maintain a webpage from your cellphone. There have been a few SquareSpace iOS apps like “Blog”, but they were pretty rudimentary missing many features you depend upon. With this app, you can now create new pages, add entries and edit entries in events and blogs, and even rearrange your webpage and menu items. You still need the SquareSpace “Commerce” and “Analytics” app to see how your webpage is doing. And there’s still no way to see donations. Or export donations and orders to a spreadsheet. But, now when someone calls me and says I need to change something immediately, I don’t have to rush back to a desktop computer to make that change.
Why?
by AaronCobra on 2019/05/08 08:27
I’m happy for those that enjoy this app, but for the life of me I don’t understand why Squarespace thought this was going to be a replacement for the discontinued Portfolio App. That app was beautiful and served a function for us photographers, designers and whomever else that needed to show their work offline. Whenever I do get a response about why they decided to do this, it’s the same copy and paste answer that makes no sense. Basically saying the portfolio app was discontinued because this new app allows you to edit your website, like that has absolutely nothing to do with why the app is gone. If this app didn’t exist, I could still edit my website on my desktop, no problem, but with the portfolio app now gone I have to create a whole new way of showing off my work to potential clients. If I didn’t pay for this service, I wouldn’t care. I would just move on.. but this is something lots of us used and need and a lot of us only used Squarespace for that functionality. I really don’t understand. I wish someone from Squarespace would actually answer this like a human and not cut and paste a generic answer that gives us no hope on if the app will return.
From hmmm to wow
by Treasi on 2020/02/01 07:44
I remember when this app use to be ... not so useful (to be polite), so I stopped using using it - it was like an empty shell of an app. But after a few years break (I’ve been a long term squarespace customer), I tentatively re-downloaded it and have been so impressed by how it’s evolved and what I can do inside! The app is really well designed and easy to use. Considering its working on a small screen, it also doesn’t feel like a I’m going to make a mistake and accidentally bump a button that publishes it live when I’m. It ready. So it feels ‘safe’ to use over the desktop editing. Thanks team!
Does not Work with iPad Pro 3rd Gen.
by Kikyosdragon on 2019/01/31 02:53
So, I brought this New iPad Pro 3rd Gen to replace my old MacBook Pro. I found I don;t really need a laptop or even MacBook. This ipad does everything I need it to do except being able to edit my website’s footers which have my business hours on it. That being said. I have contacted apple and it is not on there end. I am not even able to edit my footers in Safari much less this joke of a website manager. I have also tried contacting Squarespace Support and all I get is an email back days later explaining that they built the app for iPhones not iPads. Okay not sure who made that call but alrighty then. May question is why can’t I even edit the footers though Safari at the vary least?? It wouldn’t even work when I click “Request Desktop Site”. It will not Scroll to the bottom of a page in Safari in the Squarespace website account and building pages... This is a real problem for me as I no longer have my old computer and now I must borrow a computer to be a edit my website. I will change the rating and delete this review once this is addressed and fixed.
Used to love it
by cimino521 on 2020/01/11 14:38
I feel taken advantage of and lied to by Squarespace. I used to love SS and so, I’ve been a loyal customer for many years. About a year ago or 2 I noticed they changed their pricing plans so I switched to a less expensive one. Only to find out that this included a sneaky new 3% (on top of the stripe fee!) fee for all commerce sales. When I attempted to switch back to my old plan that had no fee I was told I couldn’t, no exceptions and my once grandfathered in plan for being a loyal customer was now null and void. This is not how I would like to be treated being a long term client. I understand I made a mistake and will now read the fine print more slowly but I am a long term customer, I am an artist, please treat me as an individual and not as one in a heard of sheep. If they switch me back to my grandfathered in business plan without the 3% transaction fee I would be a happy camper. Until then, I’m very unhappy with them and plan on one day switching to another provider that doesn’t take a chunk of small artists’ earnings without stating in large print first.
Second review and it should be a half star
by shindoverse on 2020/05/26 15:28
I still can’t use the app to blog from my iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). I have written a review before addressing this issue and I had a few support tickets on Squarespace directly to address the complaint. None of the support personnel seem to really listen to the problems stated by their customers. If they do, whatever is said doesn’t seem to get passed on to the developers. The last time I went through the support line, the first support person gave me what can be found on the support page for web-based issues. After I mentioned he failed to give me an appropriate answer to my complaint, I was then given another person who tried to address the app issues. However, the problems still remain and no deleting and reinstalling the app will solve it. All I want from this complaint and the going directly to Squarespace’s support is for this issue to be fixed. I should not be forced to use my computer if you offer this app for my devices. Before you decided to streamline the Squarespace app, you had a perfectly good blogging app. Don’t tell me to go to support again. Please listen to this and fix your bugs. Because I am ready to cancel my account. I don’t want to do this because I do like the website I created with your tools. However, I will not want to continue using Squarespace if it is too hard to use. Especially if the tools you provide make it impossible.
Bug-infested with minimal functionality
by Cameron0208 on 2020/01/30 06:13
Squarespace is not good with mobile. Period. The mobile website is awful. The mobile app is awful. The number of m bugs that keep on piling up and make the app nearly unusable is ridiculous. For instance, when clicking to add, let’s say a page, that the pop-over that comes up is almost completely off the screen. The number of things you just CAN’T do in the app render it almost pointless. My personal favorite is the fact that the devs can’t seem to figure out how sliders work. Good lord. The bug has existed for months. Go to Design > Site Styles and try dragging a slider. Just TRY. Something so basic, yet these devs can’t figure it out. I would like the devs to inform me on how or why I’m supposed to trust SS - who can’t figure out mobile design AT ALL - for my site? Doesn’t give me a lot of faith for my mobile site when the site that it’s made on can’t figure out mobile sites themselves.
Read the offers before purchasing!
by SallyCheese on 2019/08/26 16:42
This is more a review of the site itself than the app. I’ve never started a site or purchased a domain, so I was really lost when I started this. When you purchase an annual plan you get a free domain, but that wasn’t clear to me so I purchased a domain up front and then a monthly plan when I realized that just buying a domain wouldn’t allow me to publish my website through Squarespace. So I asked customer service to give me a credit for the domain that I *just* purchased (because had I known, I would have just bought the annual plan). They would not allow me to upgrade to the annual plan and credit me for the domain. I’ve also clicked around the site extensively and it’s not easy to use for inexperienced website developers— I’ll need help from a friend to navigate starting my site, that is, if I continue with Squarespace after their unfair policy.
No iPad version?
by Antoni Deighton on 2019/01/11 18:10
Squarespace: I love your platform. I’ve been using it for years. The only limitation has been that sometimes I’ll need to wait till I’m back at my desktop before implementing a change that was discussed during a meeting. I’m thrilled that there is now an iOS version. But not optimized for iPad? Really? How likely is it that I will be making changes to my brand story via my phone? Many of us use iPad’s with external keyboards as much as our desktop/laptops if not as our primary work tool #iPadOnly. So even though we can open it on our iPads, it is positioned in portrait mode, while our keyboards are optimized for landscape mode. This is a problem for me, and I’m sure I’m not unique. What UX research did you do to that lead you to optimize for iPhone? Seems like I’ll still be waiting till I’m back at my desktop before implementing changes.
You can’t do ANYTHING with this app
by Brittanie D on 2019/07/27 17:36
I used to be able to at least add events to my calendar and posts to my blog via the iOS apps available through SquareSpace. Now they have this new app that literally does nothing... I can’t edit anything, I can’t add events, I can’t add photos to my gallery, I literally have to be at home on my computer to update my website in any capacity. I liked having 4 apps for SquareSpace before this was developed with the ability to DO SOMETHING as opposed to a single streamlined app that lets me do nothing to my website what so ever. Also, this has been a complaint of this app since it’s launch months ago and SquareSpace still has not addressed these issues. That’s a problem in itself. When you’re getting feedback about your product, do something about it, or be left in the dust by your competitors. Terrible app, fix SOON please.
Quite useful!
by Isha Chirimar on 2019/01/11 21:12
This app is super useful for running my blog - I often find myself opening my laptop to make small scheduling changes for posts, and edit typos out. This makes it easier to do small things like that on the go. However, it does take quite a few clicks to get to scheduling posts and stuff like that - if there was a way to make that process a little easier, and maybe customize what appears on the homepage (shortcuts for frequently accessed features?) that would be extremely helpful. Overall, really awesome app though!
Finally! I Can Edit My Website With My iPhone
by Shrugger in Cotati on 2018/12/26 01:12
I travel full-time, and the only reason that I’ve kept my Mac is that I couldn’t edit my Squarespace website on iOS. My Mac died last week, and I found this app while doing a hail-Mary search of the App Store in hopes of finding a way to move exclusively to iOS. And then I found THIS. I expected a poor implementation that involved pick lists and being forced to drill down for features, but instead, the interface mostly works like the website. I drag blocks onto a blank page, just as with the website. Accessing photos is a bit more complicated, but that’s iOS’s fault, not Squarespace’s. I don’t see an option to add different types of pages, such as a blog, and I hope that this functionality is coming soon. I suppose as a kludge I can duplicate my existing blog page to add another blog to my site, but that doesn’t help someone with an existing site who deleted a template’s blog page and wants to add it back. Your app has inspired me to write my first review. Thank you, and I look forward to an iPad app.
Underwhelming and buggy
by zzzsportsfan on 2020/02/12 05:58
I wish I could like this app because I would really love the ability to update my site from my phone. But every time I open the app I’m quickly reminded of its limitations. For example, you can’t edit an event from the app. Really? Another example, when I have a summary block, I cannot change what gallery it displays. It allows me to change it, but then the change never occurs. Similarly, it looks like I can alter the tag filtering the gallery, but that doesn’t work either. Both of these features work on the desktop product, but not from mobile. It looks like you can edit these things, but when you try to save them they NEVER SAVE! Super frustrating. Stop pretending to have functionality that doesn’t work!
Missing key elements, and glitches
by asdfasdfasdgadfhg on 2019/08/30 20:01
I use the app for blogs on our website and there are things that I cannot do on the app, so I have to finish on a computer browser. I cannot add Tags, Categories, Title photos, etc. Placement of media on the blogs is difficult to customize. And I can only add 1 piece of media before having to click “Done - Save Draft - Edit” before adding another one. Every time after I’ve added a photo then click the + to add another, the menu to edit the photo I just added pops up. I should really be able to use this app as a replacement for the browser, especially considering the mobile browser doesn’t seem compatible (regardless of which browser I am using) and never works either.
FINALLY an iPad version...what took so long??
by Bad Kitty on 2019/05/07 14:41
Good thing I decided to update before writing this review! I’ve been pretty embarrassed while sitting at restaurants trying to edit my site with my iPad, turning my head sideways to look at the screen while trying to add blog posts. I’m not sure what took so long to do this...and like other users, I’ve switched almost entirely to my iPad and rarely carry my laptop, so this was a much needed update. Thank you! I still haven’t given it a serious run-through, but the fact that it’s here makes me happy.
Thank you! Super valuable app.
by wjjz13 on 2018/12/12 19:20
Works great for updating customer sites on the fly!!! Intuitive and effective. Overall very happy with app, it’s an answer to a very big pain point. This app will improve doing business on the go. 2 pieces of feedback: -Switching between different websites was not obvious. (It’s under the “account” tab for anyone who can’t find it). Would love to see the ability to quickly switch sites from the “home” tab. -On certain templates, navigation elements did not function properly/were not able to be edited through the app. Hopefully this will be addressed in future updates. Overall, strong 5 stars! This is a true game changer. With the launch of this app I can take a customer phone call, quickly make an edit from my phone, and immediately satisfy my customer. No need to wait for a laptop/WiFi. Something web developers have needed for years. Thank you!
IPad Pro and app
by Chaotic Good Life on 2019/10/11 20:26
Verdict: Well, it’s better than Wix... Mostly functional but it doesn’t replace having an actual computer which is super annoying. Some blocks have to be edited, moved, added, or deleted from a browser and the ipad version of safari doesn’t cut it either. My main wish is that it would be fully functional from the app and capable of supporting all the features offered, which should be feasible with the ipad specific iOS being released. More for the wish list: - edit pictures in app, even just basic cropping would be quite helpful - ability to rearrange squares in blog posts. The text and the pictures don’t line up automatically when added and you can’t really move them around - pictures don’t load when you go back into a draft. This should be the most easily remedied but I can’t seem to get it to cooperate on my end. All said, it’s better than the Wix app, so if you haven’t committed to a host yet and working on iOS is a factor for you, then Squarespace wins.
Wow, nicely done!
by darkdriving on 2019/05/01 17:39
I absolutely love that I’m able to make changes and additions to my website from the palm of my hand. This is a huge step up from the previous Squarespace apps that were available and negates the need for them altogether. My one hope is that they’ll optimize it for use on iPad (my primary work device). It would be amazing to have this work on the larger screen in landscape mode! Update: they fixed my one issue by releasing a fantastic iPad app update. Thanks a mil, Squarespace team!
Good app.
by Jaydilla on 2018/12/13 17:11
Just downloaded this today. Its a slick layout and a great idea. Makes it very easy to view your website and quickly make edits. Took me a while to figure out how to actually perform an edit to my one of my pages. There is a tutorial on the app on how to do it saying “tap on section to edit”, but it’s not that simple. After tapping around for a while, the edit bar came up all the way at the top of my scree and the options were partially cut off. It does work, however. You’ll just need to do some trial and error to get it to work. Other than that...excellent app.
Great UI for mobile.... but not iPad Compatible?!?!
by jmaz2013 on 2018/12/14 23:02
Overall I’m impressed with the app. They did a great job implementing the UI they have on desktop for mobile. As per usual with Squarespace, design is elegant and intuitive to use. I can’t help but dock a couple stars though for not being iPad compatible right out the gate. Seeing as how Squarespace is used by so many creative professionals, I would think an iPad version would be a must from the get go. Even though I am happy to have it on my phone, I would most definitely rather make changes to my site on my iPad than iPhone. It sort of feels like another “almost” for the company.
Working on the Go
by Megan7902 on 2019/11/10 08:18
I really enjoy being able to start and edit pages on the go. I can get my ideas down quickly and then work more in detail on the desktop. I haven’t been using the app for very long but it’s very easy to use especially if you learned Squarespace already on a browser. I’ve loved Squarespace for many years and will stick with them be a use of these type of features and improvements.
Not tablet compatible
by Liv-G on 2020/06/16 22:57
I was just looking to adjust my workflow by downloading the app on my ipad so i wouldn't have to reupload images to my computer then on the sote, but editing what I already have seems impossible on there. I just wanted to rearrange my gallery but following the instructions on squarespace did nothing. I cant “tap and hold” bc it doesn't register im trying to move a block or in the block. It also puts a caption block on the top of my screen that follows me so i cant get around it which is visually annoying. The squarespace videos for moving images also only does the computer version, not mobile or tablet commands.
OMG Thank you Thank you Thank you
by Chels585 on 2019/05/08 14:08
Thank you sooooo much for this app!!!! You have no idea how much easier you just made my life. I’ve been waiting for this forever!! I don’t have a computer or a car and often have to travel FAR just to edit my website but now that I can do it on my phone!!! Llfe has just gotten easier! I am a loyal Squarespace user and never use anything else so this is awesome and long over due. Thanks again guys <3
Much better than the Blog app, but needs iPad version ASAP
by Steve from the Ranch on 2018/12/18 00:55
I was a beta tester of this app and kinda went ballistic when I found that it wouldn’t run on my new iPad Pro. However, I decided to calm down and load it on my iPhone, and to be honest with you I’m pretty impressed. It does about everything I need to do, albeit on a smaller screen. I’m going to wait until the promised iPad edition appears to get really excited, but for those who need to do page or blog edits, update site settings, and so on, the new Squarespace app is pretty darned good.
Blogging on the go
by @OGthraxxed on 2019/07/23 14:30
Blogging was so much easier on the blog app ! Please bring it back. I have to get on my computer to blog now because it’s not as functional as the app was. On this app , editing is too hard in the format of the actual website. You can’t do everything you could when y’all had the blog app. The functionality was way better. The the blog section of this app like the blog app & we’ll be good to go !
Apprehensive at first, best decision ever!
by bmjfdt on 2019/09/30 12:59
I had been looking into many different platforms to see what would be best for my political blog and I couldn’t seem to make up my mind. There a many to choose from that are free to use but none like Squarespace that offer the flexibility, aesthetics, and peace of mind when starting a blog. I was apprehensive at first to start with Squarespace due to the annual fee but it so worth it! Best decision ever!

Not happy to be losing Squarespace Blog app
by Poet blogger on 2019/06/09 16:18
Just got the email that Squarespace is discontinuing its Blog App as of 1 July, and so I tried updating my blog via this App, as will be required. I am not impressed. Updating my blog seemed to require more steps, the process was much less intuitive, and even in the iPad view mode, the screen print was too small for my middle-aged eyes. The Blog App was so easy to work with and displayed so well on my iPad. Why get rid of a good thing, if you aren’t replacing it with something better? Very disappointed, as I appreciated so much being able to add a blog post even from my iPhone if need be.
Gallery issues + feature request
by Joooooooooa on 2019/09/04 16:29
After adding a gallery to a post and sorting the images, once I close the gallery edit window, the order I placed the images changes. When I try to go back in the the gallery edit panel, I am unable to scroll down to view or modify the images at the bottom of the gallery. Other time, when I open an existing gallery and click content, the gallery panel just closes. Can we also get the ability to add new tags we haven't already used to post instead of only searching for tags we have used before.
Glad it’s available for iPad, still too many limitations
by blasto2236 on 2019/05/09 05:58
I use SquareSpace to host two different sites, one of which is a podcast. I’m still not able to upload files to an audio block using the iPad app. I thought maybe this limitation would be removed when they finally released an iPad specific app, but nope. I still have to log on to my Mac and upload the audio, then write my blog post/metadata specifics in the iPad app. PITA. Please get the app up to feature parity with your website and we’ll be in business.
Nice being able to edit / create blog pages
by corymccabe on 2019/09/29 06:48
I’m really hoping full capability is something being worked on, like being able to edit/add all Block types. We’re currently limited to not being able to add Newsletter blocks, Forms, and other things I believe (don’t have a list in front of me). Design styles on pages as well. Really hope it’s in the works to build everything out, or at least gradually release new features!
Please Access To Blog App
by HonestLabe on 2019/08/23 18:18
Hi, Please allow access to still utilize the Blog App even if it will no longer being updated. I’m experiencing difficulties with the Squarespace app. In regards to its blog post features toggling and not being as user friendly. For one, it’s harder to schedule post with the slider and you can’t post on specific times. Two, the inability to add new tags to a post you can only search for previously used tags. Is it possible to gain access to the blog app?
Needs a few Improvements
by JB516 on 2019/03/03 15:32
This App is cool to edit on the go but you have a really annoying Bug that doesn’t allow you to see what you’re typing after a certain amount of content is added to the page. Needs to be more seamless for editing so that I can blog. Meaning if I add a Picture and one paragraph, I am then no longer able to continue viewing what I type if I select another Text Block. It becomes obscured by the built in keyboard that only previews the letters you press.
Poor Support for Mobile Businesses
by Nursing Mama on 2019/10/15 04:43
I run a 100% mobile business - no brick and mortar here! My customers purchase product from me at various pop up locations or book classes at myriad locations. I run about 20 events a month and I cannot add the events on the website or app platforms. It must be on a desktop which is a total chore. I am rarely in front of a desktop computer - I don’t own a desk! My business is totally on-the-go! Please fix this. I love my website but maintaining it is so hard.
Great Site. Sometimes confusing.

This is one of the easier and more professional lay outs I’ve seen for someone creating their own website, very rarely have I run into issues. My only complaint would be the SEO and social details that you can add to each individual page, it is confusing to follow the process there and with each tab on your site having its own info, it can get confusing very quickly.
Not great
by BonnieRue on 2020/07/26 05:13
With the update I lost the ability to insert links on my website. Never had an issue with it before but after contacting customer service it seems this is just an issue I will have to learn to live with. If you ever anticipate traveling and wanting to manage your website from the convenience of your iPad I would not choose Squarespace. You will not be able to fully edit it through your web browser or the app. Very frustrating.
Like it better than the site!
by LBCfromOKC on 2018/12/19 23:38
So far I’m liking the app better than the site! There have been some things I’ve wanted to change, but haven’t been able to find or have not stuck via the site. I’ve been able to do so on the app. I don’t really use my computer much so I’m loving the app! Really does everything I need it to (so far).
poor functionality
by Cass Evan on 2019/06/12 19:14
for a tech company, i’m really surprised at how glitchy this app is. when i click buttons they only work 75% of the time (i.e. tapping a photo album to upload to my gallery, and when i choose and tap the album i need to access, the button reacts but then the album list just retracts and takes me back to the general camera roll). another issue i have with uploading photos is that it doesn’t show my most recently created photo album as an option to upload from. i updated this app today hoping these bugs would be improved but now the “edit” button on my pages just remains grey and won’t allow me to tap. i was on business traveling this past weekend and my laptop was at home. i went to a convention and passed out about 20 business cards and so i would have loved the opportunity to update my website remotely.
So close
by SCGartworks on 2018/12/30 03:55
This app would be almost perfect if I could add and manage products to my website. That’s the only thing holding this back. You would think that this feature would have been one of the first ones they added when developing the app but I guess not. I was told maybe it will be added sooner than later and that I’m not the only one to complain about it. I suppose that’s encouraging.
Squarespace no longer listens or cares about their customers
by Bill Moree on 2019/07/26 19:05
Squarespace introduces this app and killed off their “Portfolio” app. Many people have written Customer Service and have shared about it on SS’s own forums. Customer Service keeps responding that this new app replaces the “Portfolio” app, which is wrong. This app doesn’t do any of the things Portfolio did. They are completely different animals. Portfolio was a critical app that no other app or service has replaced. This app duplicates what we already can do. If that works for you, great. For Photographer’s and professional artist’s, few will ever use it. It simply easier to upload work from the desktop. Squarespace isn’t listening. I don’t know whether it is because they don’t understand how their service is being used, or because they no longer care about the professional artists, designers and photographers that used to be the core of their business.
Sooo faaarrrr soooo goood
by Midnight1001001 on 2020/07/08 23:33
So far so good. I saw a few comments saying te app wasn’t all that good when it came down to touching up your website on the fly. I’m using the iPhone X and so far I have no problem and have full functionality as if I was on the website. Although I am only doing Minsk thingslike changing text and what not.
From 5 stars to 1
by TVYLOR on 2019/07/25 03:32
This app was so conveniently wonderful since most of my photos are on my phone and it made updating my website so much easier. However, now the app will not allow me to edit any of my pages. The option to edit is there, but it is greyed out and I cannot click on it. I’ve tried to close and re-open the app, start my phone over, and all the basics— nothing has solved this issue. It defeats the purpose to have an app for editing a website if the edit option does not function, thus, one star from me until this is fixed.
Blog post issues
by scottreyes on 2019/08/05 09:50
I love Squarespace. I have 4 sites on the platform, and recommend it constantly. This review covers a problem with this app specifically. When I create a new blog post, and have to go back and manually change the URL from the randomly generated one. Both the online version and the old Squarespace blog app used the title to generate the URL. When I submitted this to the support email my request was closed without a response, so I am submitting this same question here. Is this something that you plan on fixing?
Still Big quirks with App.
by StoryboardC. on 2019/11/27 04:03
The Squarespace App finally did got better, but now has again slipped back.. Can’t add new categories or tags to blog posts nor file names without a error message. I also have been having problems logging in getting another error message as well. As a paying customer who uses the app to blog. I’m really disappointed with these bugs and now can’t even get on the desktop version via my phone.
Create, manage, and edit anywhere
by TannerC on 2019/06/17 17:07
Squarespace has built a superb mobile experience with this app. I can now manage all of my websites and blogs from anywhere. I’ve had no issues with the app since testing it back in their beta program trial and am extremely glad Squarespace has built this app.
Great for quick editing on the go
by Colinstarfish on 2019/09/01 15:12
I am not always home when I need to edit my website, so this is brilliant for quick edits and blog posts. Super easy to use as well, though any fancy editing is tricky on a phone screen (I’m looking at you spacers!!) Other than that, I love the app, love the website. Thanks.
LOVE ❤️ It but ...
by adv2k169 on 2020/03/11 16:22
I have been wanting a full scale Squarespace app for years and with this we finally we got it . I am on iPhone 8+ and it runs so smooth and fast and I can do essentially anything that I can do on desktop. It’s interface is simple and works well. The issues : 1) I cannot change picture file names . This is critical for SEO and it’s crappy that I can’t do it on the go. In early versions of this app I could but not now. I even used iPad version and it always gives a glitch . 2) I cannot make new tags / categories in the mobile app (iPhone or iPad) . This is also huge for SEO . I can select ones that I made before but I cannot make new ones from scratch .
Now I can edit my calendar!
by FaderCrusader on 2020/03/06 04:16
The main feature I was looking for in an app is finally here. It’s nice to be able to edit my entire site from my phone, but the only page I edit very regularly is the calendar. I’m so happy I no longer need to be using a desktop to add events!
Squarespace does not listen...
by rollo999 on 2019/04/30 05:36
Well, for the longest time I complained - evidenced in my pre iPad version rant. Finally, here it is. I haven’t fully looked at it but from what I see, great. I won’t have to find a computer to make changes at last. Thanks squarespace developers. PS. Advise to anyone, be constructive and coherent when leaving reviews. Anyway, Thanks.

Beware of New Templates
by Dat boi00999 on 2020/08/13 17:42
Even though the app shows you new templates (version 7.1), you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FULLY EDIT your site from just the app. If plan on adding and removing pictures from the app, use older templates.
Links Cannot Be Edited
by Ya Yev on 2020/08/12 18:47
Just says unable to render component. There is literally no option to even type a link. Update: I already contacted support and they said this feature does not work. Also there is no way to insert buttons in general. This lacks so many basic features.
Editing Page Feature Not Working
by Jordaneric499 on 2020/08/10 15:49
I was planning to use square space to create a photography page but while I was editing, it kicked me off and wouldn’t letter me edit anymore after that. I’m just glad I was on the trail and didn’t purchase yet. Would love to continue to use but won’t until this is fixed.
Squarespace for the Win
by basham57 on 2020/08/07 13:13
Don’t tell anyone...I’m a senior designer at a WordPress agency, but off the clock I create all my personal and freelance websites with Squarespace. It’s fun for designers like me and all my clients love how easy it is!

Worst App
by sjtryon on 2020/07/05 17:54
Unbelievably annoying app. This app takes what should be a two minute process (adding a post to a blog) and turns it into an afternoon process. Tags, Categories, & other settings...good luck finding them without first saving as a draft and then pulling up the menu. Add tags...plan to scroll through the unsorted list to tap them off. Don’t even think about typing a few letters to find the tags you want. And on it goes. They provided wysiwyg, but in the process, complicated the entire process of working with your site. It’s far easier to just not use the app and do everything once you have the opportunity to get to your desktop computer. I really expected better from the Squarespace team. I would doubt any of them use this app.

Want to love it but there is no portfolio support
by NeoSailorCosmos on 2020/06/29 18:58
Will we be able to use this app to edit portfolios in the future? I love the idea of portfolios and use them on my website but I can’t edit them on my iOS devices which is very disappointing.
Not tablet compatible
by Liv-G on 2020/06/16 22:57
I was just looking to adjust my workflow by downloading the app on my ipad so i wouldn't have to reupload images to my computer then on the sote, but editing what I already have seems impossible on there. I just wanted to rearrange my gallery but following the instructions on squarespace did nothing. I cant “tap and hold” bc it doesn't register im trying to move a block or in the block. It also puts a caption block on the top of my screen that follows me so i cant get around it which is visually annoying. The squarespace videos for moving images also only does the computer version, not mobile or tablet commands.
Can no longer make a blog post...
by chri5dub12 on 2020/06/15 01:36
Update: The typing issues seem to be related to the new Apple Magic Keyboard. You have to use your finger to tap in the text box to be able to start typing. Please optimize this app for the Magic Keyboard. I’ve been away from Squarespace for a while. I set up a new site via Squarespace for a tech blog and I noticed the old Blog app is no longer there. So I got directed to use this Squarespace app. Now, I cannot type within a new “post”, I can only create titles. Please give us the blog app back :( Chris presscross.com
Please fix the bugs
by FlyingGorillasHusband on 2020/06/11 21:48
I’ve been looking for a place to make websites and I thought well why not try square space? Everybody knows that square space is the best place to make websites, right? Well.. I’ve experienced a lot of glitches and bugs throughout this app and all though I want to try it out its so glitchy that I can’t do anything on it. Please fix these bugs! (Also I will not be emailing and places to talk to somebody about these problems so)
Please add cursor support
by Riley Bounds on 2020/06/07 19:50
Please add support for cursors, like the one in the Magic Keyboard. As of now, the only way to select and edit text is by finger or stylus.
Service wont work. Dont buy
by Christian Elton on 2020/06/04 00:37

It’s getting worse
by A Musician on 2020/06/01 18:26
A previous version of this app was cumbersome and glitchy, but I could use it to make cursory updates to my site. A new version renders it useless. I can’t even add new photos to existing galleries. Some of the buttons don’t even respond when I tap them. Device is an iPad pro. I contacted support last week and never heard back. Bummer. This is the only negative part of the Squarespace experience for me, but it’s a significant detractor.
Today..

Don’t work ... better listen to us
by toyatoyadon on 2020/05/28 14:07
Y’all need to fix this app or people gone leave. That’s just as simple as it go. The app don’t work on mobile at all which is frustrating. To many glitches and bugs ..
Second review and it should be a half star
by shindoverse on 2020/05/26 15:28
I still can’t use the app to blog from my iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). I have written a review before addressing this issue and I had a few support tickets on Squarespace directly to address the complaint. None of the support personnel seem to really listen to the problems stated by their customers. If they do, whatever is said doesn’t seem to get passed on to the developers. The last time I went through the support line, the first support person gave me what can be found on the support page for web-based issues. After I mentioned he failed to give me an appropriate answer to my complaint, I was then given another person who tried to address the app issues. However, the problems still remain and no deleting and reinstalling the app will solve it. All I want from this complaint and the going directly to Squarespace’s support is for this issue to be fixed. I should not be forced to use my computer if you offer this app for my devices. Before you decided to streamline the Squarespace app, you had a perfectly good blogging app. Don’t tell me to go to support again. Please listen to this and fix your bugs. Because I am ready to cancel my account. I don’t want to do this because I do like the website I created with your tools. However, I will not want to continue using Squarespace if it is too hard to use. Especially if the tools you provide make it impossible.
Perfect

Doesn’t work
by Djedi25 on 2020/05/20 16:16
Simply doesn’t work. Tried to make a blog post and it’s nothing but a black screen. Same for several other attempts at new pages. Ok for editing already made pages I guess but that’s not what I needed to do

Service
by owner russowatch on 2020/05/10 18:51
I have message them four times to correct an issue with my website and still three days latter after my first email no response back I am a lack for words
Too glitchy.
by 481292 on 2020/05/10 18:02
There are so many glitches in this app. I’ve sent countless emails to Squarespace about it and I get the same responses on a loop, restart the app, restart my phone, we’ll send this to the developers. But none of the issues have been fixed and there hasn’t even been an update for two months now. It’s really frustrating trying to use this app when you have work to do. I have to toggle between the mobile version on safari or chrome and the app and because they’re both pretty terrible, it’s almost impossible to get much work done without a computer, which can’t always be brought along. That’s the whole purpose of the app but it continues to let me down. It’s even more frustrating because this isn’t a free service, I pay a lot to be able to do my work and can’t. The time wasted writing this could be spent writing my content but I can’t edit my work on the app so here I am. One year later: same glitches, same work and progress being lost and wasted trying with this app.
Helping? Or not?
by djpRun on 2020/05/07 02:28
Unfortunately, the current version won’t let me see chat conversations with the support team. I’m trying to fix something with my site and the support team responded (yay!) but I have no idea what they said. I’m finding the whole app experience completely frustrating. And... why can I see my help tickets on my website? If it’s an app only thing, it should work.
Love it

Garbage

Great but sometimes you can’t edit home page
by forcedtohustle on 2020/04/07 19:11
Besides the fact you can’t edit home page all the time without it saying “make sure you’re connected to the internet” it’s a pretty good app

Confusing and clumsy
by Mikstache on 2020/04/03 00:55

Works great for a web design novice
by Ngigz on 2020/03/30 03:49
I consider myself to be computer savvy but have no experience in web design. Squarespace helped me create a great website for a local medical practice. It has been easy to update since launch.
Doesn’t work

Rapid battery drain and heat
by Denster2u on 2020/03/27 16:09
My iPad mini 5 experiences rapid battery drain and feels hot while using this app. My battery drained 25% in 47 minutes. This is unacceptable. Please fix your app.

What is this
by Savv Simmons on 2020/03/22 19:26
Why is this site so hard to use both for myself and for my clients? I have to constantly jump through hoops with this app and its just not worth the trouble.
Bring back the blog app
by CultiKerri on 2020/03/19 14:42
I have had so many issues with writing my blogs in this app. It’s slow, closes out of things, won’t allow me to upload with the grid. Considering how much I pay for my squarespace site, it would be great if the app could work better. It looks fancy but it’s not very functional. Please bring the simple blog app that was discontinued because this “new” app.
Terrible app
by GiacamoCoreleone on 2020/03/12 20:35
This app will not recognize my account and password. I recently HAD to change the password to a new one and now “they” tell me it’s NFG! I request a link to change it AGAIN and NO email is sent. I’ve been using it for years. Have the Russians or the GOP taken it over?
AMAZING

But not when it doesn’t.
Really really slow,odd UI
by Jem Wong on 2020/03/05 20:03
I miss the old discontinued Squarespace Blog app, simple and easy to use. They now force you to use this one which provides so many features that I’d barely use or just find it easier to do on PC. I hate that the big title text box overlaps the main content text box, not to mention all the loading time you have to wait. It’s really a test for my patience. I’m sad how square space has become. Be simple, be simple, be simple.
Billing
by a-znope on 2020/03/01 15:01
Would like to be able to deal with billing on the fly rather than signing into the website. App doesn’t allow for billing updates/changes.

I’m trying to get a sponsor
by DiscoloredWatermelon on 2020/02/19 02:23
I started my YouTube channel about half a year ago and Im still very small and I want to get into sponsoring and this application seems very intriguing so If you guys are down I’ll try to do it so tell me if you can can’t or don’t want to it will be fine.
Reviews made me do it
by Nothing to really do on 2020/02/17 08:38
I was going to use this for my business, but due to the amount of negative responses and a lack of responses from the developer, I decided to go somewhere else. I don’t want to put my time into something I’ll regret in the long run.
I’ve fallen in love with Squarespace again!
by Integrix on 2020/02/15 05:54
Very impressed. This app does everything one should expect—and more—when “on the go.” Thank you, Squarespace, for making this marketer’s life easier!
Underwhelming and buggy
by zzzsportsfan on 2020/02/12 05:58
I wish I could like this app because I would really love the ability to update my site from my phone. But every time I open the app I’m quickly reminded of its limitations. For example, you can’t edit an event from the app. Really? Another example, when I have a summary block, I cannot change what gallery it displays. It allows me to change it, but then the change never occurs. Similarly, it looks like I can alter the tag filtering the gallery, but that doesn’t work either. Both of these features work on the desktop product, but not from mobile. It looks like you can edit these things, but when you try to save them they NEVER SAVE! Super frustrating.

by IeiSekssmdksismsjsk on 2020/02/11 00:45
Using this app to update my website wouldn’t be such a pain in my rear if every new image I upload to my gallery appeared at the top and not the bottom. I have to drag each one to the top. How has this not been addressed yet?! People see most recent images first when they visit websites. For Christ’s sakes.
Love it, but do want cover page options back!

That’s just about it, love the ease of use and interface.
Buggy
by G3minike on 2020/02/01 14:13
There is no place to manage inventory and the photo look up does not show all albums or shared albums on lookup.
From hmmm to wow
by Treasi on 2020/02/01 07:44
I remember when this app use to be ... not so useful (to be polite), so I stopped using using it - it was like an empty shell of an app. But after a few years break (I’ve been a long term squarespace customer), I tentatively re-downloaded it and have been so impressed by how it’s evolved and what I can do inside! The app is really well designed and easy to use. Considering its working on a small screen, it also doesn’t feel like a I’m going to make a mistake and accidentally bump a button that publishes it live when I’m. It ready. So it feels ‘safe’ to use over the desktop editing. Thanks team!
Crashes constantly
by toomuchtimebeingwasted on 2020/01/31 16:44
Can’t even open without crashing , wait till the bugs are out. Deleted this twice . Nothing wrong with the previous version at all ... Update 01/30/2020 , ok the updated version is now stable, no more crashing , seems to work fine so far ..guess the developers listened to the moaning ....
Bug-infested with minimal functionality
by Cameron0208 on 2020/01/30 06:13
Squarespace is not good with mobile. Period. The mobile website is awful. The mobile app is awful. The number of m bugs that keep on piling up and make the app nearly unusable is ridiculous. For instance, when clicking to add, let’s say a page, that the pop-over that comes up is almost completely off the screen. The number of things you just CAN’T do in the app render it almost pointless. My personal favorite is the fact that the devs can’t seem to figure out how sliders work. Good lord. The bug has existed for months. Go to Design > Site Styles and try dragging a slider. Just TRY. Something so basic, yet these devs can’t figure it out. I would like the devs to inform me on how or why I’m supposed to trust SS - who can’t figure out mobile design AT ALL - for my site? Doesn’t give me a lot of faith for my mobile site when the site that it’s made on can’t figure out mobile sites themselves.
Awesome!!!

Latest version fails to open
by kreygscott on 2020/01/26 22:39
Sadly this latest version will not open. No surprise here given the myriad of failed app support by so many developers. Maybe we need a complete reset of every aspect of technology and start a fresh.

App keeps crashing!

I literally downloaded, deleted and redownloaded the app like 5 times and it keeps crashing!
Not what I was looking for.
by BrigeMcQ on 2020/01/22 18:10
Although this app is helpful if I need to make a quick edit to my website (which I really don’t think will happen often) I was looking for an app to help me with messaging my customers and checking messages quickly that are sent through my website. Things like that.
No Functionality
by Kengaylord on 2020/01/19 17:50
This app is barely usable. It’s only marginally better than the web version on the iPad’s Safari. Here’s a list of what you can do, so far as I can tell: add sections to your website as long as it is one of Squarespaces cookie cutter sections. Add webpages, as long as it’s one of squarespaces garbage pre-formatted pages. Edit text, occasionally. Change pictures that are on their templates. Here are a couple of BASIC things you can’t do: Add custom blocks, like a text box. Edit the calendar event time and date on their own calendar page. I don’t have a computer and thought this would be a good option to use on my iPad Pro. Guess I was wrong. Don’t waste your time with the app.
Used to love it
by cimino521 on 2020/01/11 14:38
I feel taken advantage of and lied to by Squarespace. I used to love SS and so, I’ve been a loyal customer for many years. About a year ago or 2 I noticed they changed their pricing plans so I switched to a less expensive one. Only to find out that this included a sneaky new 3% (on top of the stripe fee!) fee for all commerce sales. When I attempted to switch back to my old plan that had no fee I was told I couldn’t, no exceptions and my once grandfathered in plan for being a loyal customer was now null and void. This is not how I would like to be treated being a long term client. I understand I made a mistake and will now read the fine print more slowly but I am a long term customer, I am an artist, please treat me as an individual and not as one in a heard of sheep. If they switch me back to my grandfathered in business plan without the 3% transaction fee I would be a happy camper. Until then, I’m very unhappy with them and plan on one day switching to another provider that doesn’t take a chunk of small artists’ earnings without stating in large print first.
Horrible app

IPad App Not Working
by diffbooth on 2020/01/04 10:29
Update: even after an update to fix iPad editing the app still won’t load pages 🙁 I have a 2018 iPad Pro 12.9. I had been using the app but not its completely non functioning. Deleted the app, restarted several times, re-downloaded the app, and nothing. Have three sites and none of them will load in the app but everything was working in November. What happened?
Still broken.
by @HeyEddie on 2020/01/04 00:46
If your goal was to edit one single letter on a page with this “fixed” update, think again. Another epic fail. Thanks Squarespace, for nothing.
Updates break iPad version under iOS 13

No copy edit

Pretty much useless. I can edit my gallery page but not much else. pages w copy are blank.
Not useful
by MrSonnyJames on 2019/12/30 03:24
I pretty much depended on the Blog app to update my site from my iPad. Now that this streamlined app has replaced that as an option, I’m forced to use it. Except one thing. It doesn’t work. And every time I attempt to post a blog update, there’s a connection failure. This is the opposite of progress. SMH
Why do you need 3 different apps ?
by HausoFFashion.net on 2019/12/27 12:13
I have to toggle between 3 different apps to maintain my business and still not able to add new items from any of them. I have to add new products from a desktop. You have to pay $40 monthly for items that are included with other e-commerce platforms prime example Instagram and abandoned cart recovery? I already switched back to Shopify. Not paying $40 monthly and CSU even add new products from my mobile phone.
Awesome!!

App is Not intuitive to edit pages as it once was
by Spencejw on 2019/12/02 02:20
I’m writing this after spending an inordinate amount of time trying to adjust my website from the app, unable to successfully select sections to edit at all. It amounts to too long wasted down a rabbit hole...
What’s the point?
by luckysmom34 on 2019/11/29 22:29
I downloaded the app to be able to edit pages on the go, but when I go to the ‘edit’ feature it says it’s not allowed on this app. What’s the point of having the feature if it’s useless?
Update
by Runwayaddict on 2019/11/27 12:49
With this new update things have improved, however I’m not sure how to publish my post anymore on the mobile app.
Still Big quirks with App.
by StoryboardC. on 2019/11/27 04:03
The Squarespace App finally did got better, but now has again slipped back.. Can’t add new categories or tags to blog posts nor file names without a error message. I also have been having problems logging in getting another error message as well. As a paying customer who uses the app to blog. I’m really disappointed with these bugs and now can’t even get on the desktop version via my phone.
Redesign Disaster
by bsgrozier on 2019/11/16 01:06
The redesigned app is worthless, impossible to navigate, and the farthest thing from intuitive in the history of apps.
Doesn’t work anymore
by Patrick Nelissen on 2019/11/14 05:51
After upgrading my iPhone 11 to the latest iOS version 13.2.2, the app doesn’t work anymore. This is frustrating as I have to use my old iPhone 6 (iOS 12) now to fulfill orders, etc. Hopefully Square van fix this annoying bug soon.
Editing tools don’t work or respond at all...
by jeebs68957 on 2019/11/13 15:48
Editing capabilities aren’t working at all, and there’s no way to even edit the text on pages. This app is pretty much useless to me.

by Celestia 💛 on 2019/11/10 19:00
This app used to be good. Now I can only post one photo at a time and just do the basics until I get home unless I have my laptop on me. Pretty annoying that there’s no option to change your actual webpages through the app...I can’t always access my computer Squarespace!
Working on the Go
by Megan7902 on 2019/11/10 08:18
I really enjoy being able to start and edit pages on the go. I can get my ideas down quickly and then work more in detail on the desktop. I haven’t been using the app for very long but it’s very easy to use especially if you learned Squarespace already on a browser. I’ve loved Squarespace for many years and will stick with them be a use of these type of features and improvements.

Love the app - suggestion to the developers
by RDBPhotoLLC on 2019/10/26 22:38
Love the app and the capabilities it has - only gripe is why can’t we have the ability to go landscape on iPhone?!? That is the one thing I miss about no longer having the portfolio app. When I want to show someone my photos on my phone I have to go to my website I order to get the full size image in landscape. I don’t want to keep having to do this multiple times a day... When can we expect this feature?
This app is made of spare parts
by Whocaresitsjustareview on 2019/10/22 12:37
I created a site recently, on version 7.1. Guess what. This app only supports squarespace 7.0. Its in the description. What sorta backwards pageantry is this? Can’t make your app work with the newest version of your own site? Nice execution, squarespace. You’re doing terrific.
Easy
by SixCentsPhotos on 2019/10/21 14:17
Downloaded the app and very pleased with the ease of use. Didn't feel I had to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.
Waaaay Better
by OnlyDavid on 2018/12/13 01:40
It is so ironic that SquareSpace works so hard to make sure webpages display correctly on any size display: phones, tablets, or desktops, yet, editing SquareSpace webpages in anything less than a desktop device with mouse or trackpad doesn’t work. Forget about trying to maintain a webpage from your cellphone. There have been a few SquareSpace iOS apps like “Blog”, but they were pretty rudimentary missing many features you depend upon. With this app, you can now create new pages, add entries and edit entries in events and blogs, and even rearrange your webpage and menu items. You still need the SquareSpace “Commerce” and “Analytics” app to see how your webpage is doing. And there’s still no way to see donations. Or export donations and orders to a spreadsheet. But, now when someone calls me and says I need to change something immediately, I don’t have to rush back to a desktop computer to make that change.
Why?
by AaronCobra on 2019/05/08 08:27
I’m happy for those that enjoy this app, but for the life of me I don’t understand why Squarespace thought this was going to be a replacement for the discontinued Portfolio App. That app was beautiful and served a function for us photographers, designers and whomever else that needed to show their work offline. Whenever I do get a response about why they decided to do this, it’s the same copy and paste answer that makes no sense. Basically saying the portfolio app was discontinued because this new app allows you to edit your website, like that has absolutely nothing to do with why the app is gone. If this app didn’t exist, I could still edit my website on my desktop, no problem, but with the portfolio app now gone I have to create a whole new way of showing off my work to potential clients. If I didn’t pay for this service, I wouldn’t care. I would just move on.. but this is something lots of us used and need and a lot of us only used Squarespace for that functionality. I really don’t understand. I wish someone from Squarespace would actually answer this like a human and not cut and paste a generic answer that gives us no hope on if the app will return.

Does not Work with iPad Pro 3rd Gen.
by Kikyosdragon on 2019/01/31 02:53
So, I brought this New iPad Pro 3rd Gen to replace my old MacBook Pro. I found I don;t really need a laptop or even MacBook. This ipad does everything I need it to do except being able to edit my website’s footers which have my business hours on it. That being said. I have contacted apple and it is not on there end. I am not even able to edit my footers in Safari much less this joke of a website manager. I have also tried contacting Squarespace Support and all I get is an email back days later explaining that they built the app for iPhones not iPads. Okay not sure who made that call but alrighty then. May question is why can’t I even edit the footers though Safari at the vary least?? It wouldn’t even work when I click “Request Desktop Site”. It will not Scroll to the bottom of a page in Safari in the Squarespace website account and building pages... This is a real problem for me as I no longer have my old computer and now I must borrow a computer to be a edit my website. I will change the rating and delete this review once this is addressed and fixed.

Second review and it should be a half star
by shindoverse on 2020/05/26 15:28
I still can’t use the app to blog from my iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). I have written a review before addressing this issue and I had a few support tickets on Squarespace directly to address the complaint. None of the support personnel seem to really listen to the problems stated by their customers. If they do, whatever is said doesn’t seem to get passed on to the developers. The last time I went through the support line, the first support person gave me what can be found on the support page for web-based issues. After I mentioned he failed to give me an appropriate answer to my complaint, I was then given another person who tried to address the app issues. However, the problems still remain and no deleting and reinstalling the app will solve it. All I want from this complaint and the going directly to Squarespace’s support is for this issue to be fixed. I should not be forced to use my computer if you offer this app for my devices. Before you decided to streamline the Squarespace app, you had a perfectly good blogging app. Don’t tell me to go to support again. Please listen to this and fix your bugs. Because I am ready to cancel my account. I don’t want to do this because I do like the website I created with your tools. However, I will not want to continue using Squarespace if it is too hard to use. Especially if the tools you provide make it impossible.

Read the offers before purchasing!
by SallyCheese on 2019/08/26 16:42
This is more a review of the site itself than the app. I’ve never started a site or purchased a domain, so I was really lost when I started this. When you purchase an annual plan you get a free domain, but that wasn’t clear to me so I purchased a domain up front and then a monthly plan when I realized that just buying a domain wouldn’t allow me to publish my website through Squarespace. So I asked customer service to give me a credit for the domain that I *just* purchased (because had I known, I would have just bought the annual plan). They would not allow me to upgrade to the annual plan and credit me for the domain. I’ve also clicked around the site extensively and it’s not easy to use for inexperienced website developers— I’ll need help from a friend to navigate starting my site, that is, if I continue with Squarespace after their unfair policy.
No iPad version?
by Antoni Deighton on 2019/01/11 18:10
Squarespace: I love your platform. I’ve been using it for years. The only limitation has been that sometimes I’ll need to wait till I’m back at my desktop before implementing a change that was discussed during a meeting. I’m thrilled that there is now an iOS version. But not optimized for iPad? Really? How likely is it that I will be making changes to my brand story via my phone? Many of us use iPad’s with external keyboards as much as our desktop/laptops if not as our primary work tool #iPadOnly. So even though we can open it on our iPads, it is positioned in portrait mode, while our keyboards are optimized for landscape mode. This is a problem for me, and I’m sure I’m not unique. What UX research did you do to that lead you to optimize for iPhone? Seems like I’ll still be waiting till I’m back at my desktop before implementing changes.
You can’t do ANYTHING with this app
by Brittanie D on 2019/07/27 17:36
I used to be able to at least add events to my calendar and posts to my blog via the iOS apps available through SquareSpace. Now they have this new app that literally does nothing... I can’t edit anything, I can’t add events, I can’t add photos to my gallery, I literally have to be at home on my computer to update my website in any capacity. I liked having 4 apps for SquareSpace before this was developed with the ability to DO SOMETHING as opposed to a single streamlined app that lets me do nothing to my website what so ever. Also, this has been a complaint of this app since it’s launch months ago and SquareSpace still has not addressed these issues. That’s a problem in itself. When you’re getting feedback about your product, do something about it, or be left in the dust by your competitors. Terrible app, fix SOON please.
Quite useful!
by Isha Chirimar on 2019/01/11 21:12
This app is super useful for running my blog - I often find myself opening my laptop to make small scheduling changes for posts, and edit typos out. This makes it easier to do small things like that on the go. However, it does take quite a few clicks to get to scheduling posts and stuff like that - if there was a way to make that process a little easier, and maybe customize what appears on the homepage (shortcuts for frequently accessed features?) that would be extremely helpful. Overall, really awesome app though!
Finally! I Can Edit My Website With My iPhone
by Shrugger in Cotati on 2018/12/26 01:12
I travel full-time, and the only reason that I’ve kept my Mac is that I couldn’t edit my Squarespace website on iOS. My Mac died last week, and I found this app while doing a hail-Mary search of the App Store in hopes of finding a way to move exclusively to iOS. And then I found THIS. I expected a poor implementation that involved pick lists and being forced to drill down for features, but instead, the interface mostly works like the website. I drag blocks onto a blank page, just as with the website. Accessing photos is a bit more complicated, but that’s iOS’s fault, not Squarespace’s. I don’t see an option to add different types of pages, such as a blog, and I hope that this functionality is coming soon. I suppose as a kludge I can duplicate my existing blog page to add another blog to my site, but that doesn’t help someone with an existing site who deleted a template’s blog page and wants to add it back. Your app has inspired me to write my first review. Thank you, and I look forward to an iPad app.
Underwhelming and buggy
by zzzsportsfan on 2020/02/12 05:58
I wish I could like this app because I would really love the ability to update my site from my phone. But every time I open the app I’m quickly reminded of its limitations. For example, you can’t edit an event from the app. Really? Another example, when I have a summary block, I cannot change what gallery it displays. It allows me to change it, but then the change never occurs. Similarly, it looks like I can alter the tag filtering the gallery, but that doesn’t work either. Both of these features work on the desktop product, but not from mobile. It looks like you can edit these things, but when you try to save them they NEVER SAVE! Super frustrating. Stop pretending to have functionality that doesn’t work!
Missing key elements, and glitches
by asdfasdfasdgadfhg on 2019/08/30 20:01
I use the app for blogs on our website and there are things that I cannot do on the app, so I have to finish on a computer browser. I cannot add Tags, Categories, Title photos, etc. Placement of media on the blogs is difficult to customize. And I can only add 1 piece of media before having to click “Done - Save Draft - Edit” before adding another one. Every time after I’ve added a photo then click the + to add another, the menu to edit the photo I just added pops up. I should really be able to use this app as a replacement for the browser, especially considering the mobile browser doesn’t seem compatible (regardless of which browser I am using) and never works either.
FINALLY an iPad version...what took so long??
by Bad Kitty on 2019/05/07 14:41
Good thing I decided to update before writing this review! I’ve been pretty embarrassed while sitting at restaurants trying to edit my site with my iPad, turning my head sideways to look at the screen while trying to add blog posts. I’m not sure what took so long to do this...and like other users, I’ve switched almost entirely to my iPad and rarely carry my laptop, so this was a much needed update. Thank you! I still haven’t given it a serious run-through, but the fact that it’s here makes me happy.
Thank you! Super valuable app.
by wjjz13 on 2018/12/12 19:20
Works great for updating customer sites on the fly!!! Intuitive and effective. Overall very happy with app, it’s an answer to a very big pain point. This app will improve doing business on the go. 2 pieces of feedback: -Switching between different websites was not obvious. (It’s under the “account” tab for anyone who can’t find it). Would love to see the ability to quickly switch sites from the “home” tab. -On certain templates, navigation elements did not function properly/were not able to be edited through the app. Hopefully this will be addressed in future updates. Overall, strong 5 stars! This is a true game changer. With the launch of this app I can take a customer phone call, quickly make an edit from my phone, and immediately satisfy my customer. No need to wait for a laptop/WiFi. Something web developers have needed for years. Thank you!
IPad Pro and app
by Chaotic Good Life on 2019/10/11 20:26
Verdict: Well, it’s better than Wix... Mostly functional but it doesn’t replace having an actual computer which is super annoying. Some blocks have to be edited, moved, added, or deleted from a browser and the ipad version of safari doesn’t cut it either. My main wish is that it would be fully functional from the app and capable of supporting all the features offered, which should be feasible with the ipad specific iOS being released. More for the wish list: - edit pictures in app, even just basic cropping would be quite helpful - ability to rearrange squares in blog posts. The text and the pictures don’t line up automatically when added and you can’t really move them around - pictures don’t load when you go back into a draft. This should be the most easily remedied but I can’t seem to get it to cooperate on my end. All said, it’s better than the Wix app, so if you haven’t committed to a host yet and working on iOS is a factor for you, then Squarespace wins.
Wow, nicely done!
by darkdriving on 2019/05/01 17:39
I absolutely love that I’m able to make changes and additions to my website from the palm of my hand. This is a huge step up from the previous Squarespace apps that were available and negates the need for them altogether. My one hope is that they’ll optimize it for use on iPad (my primary work device). It would be amazing to have this work on the larger screen in landscape mode! Update: they fixed my one issue by releasing a fantastic iPad app update. Thanks a mil, Squarespace team!
Good app.

Just downloaded this today. Its a slick layout and a great idea. Makes it very easy to view your website and quickly make edits. Took me a while to figure out how to actually perform an edit to my one of my pages. There is a tutorial on the app on how to do it saying “tap on section to edit”, but it’s not that simple. After tapping around for a while, the edit bar came up all the way at the top of my scree and the options were partially cut off. It does work, however. You’ll just need to do some trial and error to get it to work. Other than that...excellent app.
Great UI for mobile.... but not iPad Compatible?!?!
by jmaz2013 on 2018/12/14 23:02
Overall I’m impressed with the app. They did a great job implementing the UI they have on desktop for mobile. As per usual with Squarespace, design is elegant and intuitive to use. I can’t help but dock a couple stars though for not being iPad compatible right out the gate. Seeing as how Squarespace is used by so many creative professionals, I would think an iPad version would be a must from the get go. Even though I am happy to have it on my phone, I would most definitely rather make changes to my site on my iPad than iPhone. It sort of feels like another “almost” for the company.
Working on the Go
by Megan7902 on 2019/11/10 08:18
I really enjoy being able to start and edit pages on the go. I can get my ideas down quickly and then work more in detail on the desktop. I haven’t been using the app for very long but it’s very easy to use especially if you learned Squarespace already on a browser. I’ve loved Squarespace for many years and will stick with them be a use of these type of features and improvements.
Not tablet compatible
by Liv-G on 2020/06/16 22:57
I was just looking to adjust my workflow by downloading the app on my ipad so i wouldn't have to reupload images to my computer then on the sote, but editing what I already have seems impossible on there. I just wanted to rearrange my gallery but following the instructions on squarespace did nothing. I cant “tap and hold” bc it doesn't register im trying to move a block or in the block. It also puts a caption block on the top of my screen that follows me so i cant get around it which is visually annoying. The squarespace videos for moving images also only does the computer version, not mobile or tablet commands.
OMG Thank you Thank you Thank you
by Chels585 on 2019/05/08 14:08
Thank you sooooo much for this app!!!! You have no idea how much easier you just made my life. I’ve been waiting for this forever!! I don’t have a computer or a car and often have to travel FAR just to edit my website but now that I can do it on my phone!!! Llfe has just gotten easier! I am a loyal Squarespace user and never use anything else so this is awesome and long over due. Thanks again guys <3
Much better than the Blog app, but needs iPad version ASAP
by Steve from the Ranch on 2018/12/18 00:55
I was a beta tester of this app and kinda went ballistic when I found that it wouldn’t run on my new iPad Pro. However, I decided to calm down and load it on my iPhone, and to be honest with you I’m pretty impressed. It does about everything I need to do, albeit on a smaller screen. I’m going to wait until the promised iPad edition appears to get really excited, but for those who need to do page or blog edits, update site settings, and so on, the new Squarespace app is pretty darned good.
Blogging on the go
by @OGthraxxed on 2019/07/23 14:30
Blogging was so much easier on the blog app ! Please bring it back. I have to get on my computer to blog now because it’s not as functional as the app was. On this app , editing is too hard in the format of the actual website. You can’t do everything you could when y’all had the blog app. The functionality was way better. The the blog section of this app like the blog app & we’ll be good to go !
Apprehensive at first, best decision ever!
by bmjfdt on 2019/09/30 12:59
I had been looking into many different platforms to see what would be best for my political blog and I couldn’t seem to make up my mind. There a many to choose from that are free to use but none like Squarespace that offer the flexibility, aesthetics, and peace of mind when starting a blog. I was apprehensive at first to start with Squarespace due to the annual fee but it so worth it! Best decision ever!
Love the app - suggestion to the developers
by RDBPhotoLLC on 2019/10/26 22:38
Love the app and the capabilities it has - only gripe is why can’t we have the ability to go landscape on iPhone?!? That is the one thing I miss about no longer having the portfolio app. When I want to show someone my photos on my phone I have to go to my website I order to get the full size image in landscape. I don’t want to keep having to do this multiple times a day... When can we expect this feature?
Not happy to be losing Squarespace Blog app
by Poet blogger on 2019/06/09 16:18
Just got the email that Squarespace is discontinuing its Blog App as of 1 July, and so I tried updating my blog via this App, as will be required. I am not impressed. Updating my blog seemed to require more steps, the process was much less intuitive, and even in the iPad view mode, the screen print was too small for my middle-aged eyes. The Blog App was so easy to work with and displayed so well on my iPad. Why get rid of a good thing, if you aren’t replacing it with something better? Very disappointed, as I appreciated so much being able to add a blog post even from my iPhone if need be.
Gallery issues + feature request
by Joooooooooa on 2019/09/04 16:29
After adding a gallery to a post and sorting the images, once I close the gallery edit window, the order I placed the images changes. When I try to go back in the the gallery edit panel, I am unable to scroll down to view or modify the images at the bottom of the gallery. Other time, when I open an existing gallery and click content, the gallery panel just closes. Can we also get the ability to add new tags we haven't already used to post instead of only searching for tags we have used before.
Glad it’s available for iPad, still too many limitations
by blasto2236 on 2019/05/09 05:58
I use SquareSpace to host two different sites, one of which is a podcast. I’m still not able to upload files to an audio block using the iPad app. I thought maybe this limitation would be removed when they finally released an iPad specific app, but nope. I still have to log on to my Mac and upload the audio, then write my blog post/metadata specifics in the iPad app. PITA. Please get the app up to feature parity with your website and we’ll be in business.
Nice being able to edit / create blog pages
by corymccabe on 2019/09/29 06:48
I’m really hoping full capability is something being worked on, like being able to edit/add all Block types. We’re currently limited to not being able to add Newsletter blocks, Forms, and other things I believe (don’t have a list in front of me). Design styles on pages as well. Really hope it’s in the works to build everything out, or at least gradually release new features!
Please Access To Blog App
by HonestLabe on 2019/08/23 18:18
Hi, Please allow access to still utilize the Blog App even if it will no longer being updated. I’m experiencing difficulties with the Squarespace app. In regards to its blog post features toggling and not being as user friendly. For one, it’s harder to schedule post with the slider and you can’t post on specific times. Two, the inability to add new tags to a post you can only search for previously used tags. Is it possible to gain access to the blog app?
Needs a few Improvements
by JB516 on 2019/03/03 15:32
This App is cool to edit on the go but you have a really annoying Bug that doesn’t allow you to see what you’re typing after a certain amount of content is added to the page. Needs to be more seamless for editing so that I can blog. Meaning if I add a Picture and one paragraph, I am then no longer able to continue viewing what I type if I select another Text Block. It becomes obscured by the built in keyboard that only previews the letters you press.
Poor Support for Mobile Businesses
by Nursing Mama on 2019/10/15 04:43
I run a 100% mobile business - no brick and mortar here! My customers purchase product from me at various pop up locations or book classes at myriad locations. I run about 20 events a month and I cannot add the events on the website or app platforms. It must be on a desktop which is a total chore. I am rarely in front of a desktop computer - I don’t own a desk! My business is totally on-the-go! Please fix this. I love my website but maintaining it is so hard.
Great Site. Sometimes confusing.
by ShaggyManRogers on 2019/03/03 18:15
This is one of the easier and more professional lay outs I’ve seen for someone creating their own website, very rarely have I run into issues. My only complaint would be the SEO and social details that you can add to each individual page, it is confusing to follow the process there and with each tab on your site having its own info, it can get confusing very quickly.
Not great
by BonnieRue on 2020/07/26 05:13
With the update I lost the ability to insert links on my website. Never had an issue with it before but after contacting customer service it seems this is just an issue I will have to learn to live with. If you ever anticipate traveling and wanting to manage your website from the convenience of your iPad I would not choose Squarespace. You will not be able to fully edit it through your web browser or the app. Very frustrating.
Like it better than the site!
by LBCfromOKC on 2018/12/19 23:38
So far I’m liking the app better than the site! There have been some things I’ve wanted to change, but haven’t been able to find or have not stuck via the site. I’ve been able to do so on the app. I don’t really use my computer much so I’m loving the app! Really does everything I need it to (so far).
poor functionality
by Cass Evan on 2019/06/12 19:14
for a tech company, i’m really surprised at how glitchy this app is. when i click buttons they only work 75% of the time (i.e. tapping a photo album to upload to my gallery, and when i choose and tap the album i need to access, the button reacts but then the album list just retracts and takes me back to the general camera roll). another issue i have with uploading photos is that it doesn’t show my most recently created photo album as an option to upload from. i updated this app today hoping these bugs would be improved but now the “edit” button on my pages just remains grey and won’t allow me to tap. i was on business traveling this past weekend and my laptop was at home. i went to a convention and passed out about 20 business cards and so i would have loved the opportunity to update my website remotely.
So close
by SCGartworks on 2018/12/30 03:55
This app would be almost perfect if I could add and manage products to my website. That’s the only thing holding this back. You would think that this feature would have been one of the first ones they added when developing the app but I guess not. I was told maybe it will be added sooner than later and that I’m not the only one to complain about it. I suppose that’s encouraging.
Squarespace no longer listens or cares about their customers
by Bill Moree on 2019/07/26 19:05
Squarespace introduces this app and killed off their “Portfolio” app. Many people have written Customer Service and have shared about it on SS’s own forums. Customer Service keeps responding that this new app replaces the “Portfolio” app, which is wrong. This app doesn’t do any of the things Portfolio did. They are completely different animals. Portfolio was a critical app that no other app or service has replaced. This app duplicates what we already can do. If that works for you, great. For Photographer’s and professional artist’s, few will ever use it. It simply easier to upload work from the desktop. Squarespace isn’t listening. I don’t know whether it is because they don’t understand how their service is being used, or because they no longer care about the professional artists, designers and photographers that used to be the core of their business.
Sooo faaarrrr soooo goood
by Midnight1001001 on 2020/07/08 23:33
So far so good. I saw a few comments saying te app wasn’t all that good when it came down to touching up your website on the fly. I’m using the iPhone X and so far I have no problem and have full functionality as if I was on the website. Although I am only doing Minsk thingslike changing text and what not.
From 5 stars to 1
by TVYLOR on 2019/07/25 03:32
This app was so conveniently wonderful since most of my photos are on my phone and it made updating my website so much easier. However, now the app will not allow me to edit any of my pages. The option to edit is there, but it is greyed out and I cannot click on it. I’ve tried to close and re-open the app, start my phone over, and all the basics— nothing has solved this issue. It defeats the purpose to have an app for editing a website if the edit option does not function, thus, one star from me until this is fixed.
Blog post issues
by scottreyes on 2019/08/05 09:50
I love Squarespace. I have 4 sites on the platform, and recommend it constantly. This review covers a problem with this app specifically. When I create a new blog post, and have to go back and manually change the URL from the randomly generated one. Both the online version and the old Squarespace blog app used the title to generate the URL. When I submitted this to the support email my request was closed without a response, so I am submitting this same question here. Is this something that you plan on fixing?
Still Big quirks with App.
by StoryboardC. on 2019/11/27 04:03
The Squarespace App finally did got better, but now has again slipped back.. Can’t add new categories or tags to blog posts nor file names without a error message. I also have been having problems logging in getting another error message as well. As a paying customer who uses the app to blog. I’m really disappointed with these bugs and now can’t even get on the desktop version via my phone.
Create, manage, and edit anywhere
by TannerC on 2019/06/17 17:07
Squarespace has built a superb mobile experience with this app. I can now manage all of my websites and blogs from anywhere. I’ve had no issues with the app since testing it back in their beta program trial and am extremely glad Squarespace has built this app.
Great for quick editing on the go
by Colinstarfish on 2019/09/01 15:12
I am not always home when I need to edit my website, so this is brilliant for quick edits and blog posts. Super easy to use as well, though any fancy editing is tricky on a phone screen (I’m looking at you spacers!!) Other than that, I love the app, love the website. Thanks.
LOVE ❤️ It but ...
by adv2k169 on 2020/03/11 16:22
I have been wanting a full scale Squarespace app for years and with this we finally we got it . I am on iPhone 8+ and it runs so smooth and fast and I can do essentially anything that I can do on desktop. It’s interface is simple and works well. The issues : 1) I cannot change picture file names . This is critical for SEO and it’s crappy that I can’t do it on the go. In early versions of this app I could but not now. I even used iPad version and it always gives a glitch . 2) I cannot make new tags / categories in the mobile app (iPhone or iPad) . This is also huge for SEO . I can select ones that I made before but I cannot make new ones from scratch .
Now I can edit my calendar!
by FaderCrusader on 2020/03/06 04:16
The main feature I was looking for in an app is finally here. It’s nice to be able to edit my entire site from my phone, but the only page I edit very regularly is the calendar. I’m so happy I no longer need to be using a desktop to add events!
Squarespace does not listen...
by rollo999 on 2019/04/30 05:36
Well, for the longest time I complained - evidenced in my pre iPad version rant. Finally, here it is. I haven’t fully looked at it but from what I see, great. I won’t have to find a computer to make changes at last. Thanks squarespace developers. PS. Advise to anyone, be constructive and coherent when leaving reviews. Anyway, Thanks.
