Wrike Android app is available for all types of users on all subscription types. The features in the app are available in accordance with your subscription type.
Wrike’s Android app allows you to stay on top of your projects and connect with your team on the go. The application is available as a free download and supported by Android smartphones and tablets running version 5 or later.
Please note that Wrike does not support mobile browsers; hence our [Android/iOS] App is the best option for using Wrike on mobile.
By default, in the bottom menu of the app you can switch between the following sections:

*Users who have an account with the Wrike for Professional Services package and Wrike Resource add-on can track time on the go in the Android app's Timesheets. Wrike connects your Timesheets with Google Calendar to easily add time spent on meetings and other scheduled tasks. The app automatically offers to integrate your Google Calendar when you open Timesheets. Additionally, in Timesheets you can see billable and non-billable time totals, a weekly summary of tracked time, and highlights for tasks that require your attention.
Activity is a special mobile version of the Stream tab that contains additional features, allowing you to track detailed changes and make timely adjustments on-the-go.
With Activity, you can stay on top of all your running assignments to make sure you don’t miss any updates in active tasks. Activity shows you:
By default, Activity will send you a daily push notification with all your latest updates consolidated in one place. You can disable the push notifications in Settings > Activity notifications.
In the daily Activity digest you can:
Once you open Activity, all updates are marked as read.
There are a few ways to access Activity:
Try Activity for a week and leave feedback to help us adjust the experience for your needs. To do this in the app click More > Feedback.
You can view existing dashboards and widgets but can’t create new or edit existing ones.
View a different dashboard: Tap the name of the dashboard you’re currently looking at (listed at the top of the view) and select a different dashboard from the list.
View a different widget: Widgets are listed at the top of the view under the dashboard’s name. Scroll to the left or right to view a different widget.
You can view task and project reports from Android, but you can’t create new reports or edit existing ones.
You can submit requests from Android but you can’t create new request forms.
When working offline you can access folders, projects, and reports of which data has been stored on your phone. This means that you can access folders, projects, and reports which you've opened during your current session (since you last logged in)*. You'll also be able to open tasks (but not task description fields) that live in those folders and projects, even if you didn’t open a particular task.
Once offline you'll be able to work with cached data and make changes as you normally would. When you connect to the internet again, your changes are synced.
While offline you can:
All changes are synced when you connect to the internet.
When you're working offline, once you make at least one change in a task, folder, or project, you'll see this message at the top of the view: "Task/folder/project has X change(s) waiting for sync." This message will appear in the Task view and project or folder info panels of each item where you make changes while offline.
To review all changes that you made:
The "Pending changes" view will open. It contains the list of tasks, folders, and projects that you made changes to while working offline. You can tap an item in the list to view your changes in its Stream. You can also tap the "Remove" button on a task, folder, or project in the list to cancel all changes you made before they're synced.
Note! When you only make changes in the description field of a task, folder, or project, you won't see the message at the top of the Task view or the project/folder info panel, and you won't be able to open the "Pending changes" view. But the changes that you make will still be synced when your internet connection is restored.
You can add any, or all, of our app’s Android widgets to the start screen of your smartphone:
Project progress is available on Business accounts and up.
Project progress allows you to see how well your projects are doing and which of them require attention. Wrike automatically calculates your project progress based on selected metrics and updates it in real time.
This page describes how to enable and access project progress in the Android app. To read more about the progress metrics and how they’re calculated, visit the Project Progress overview page.
Note: In the Android app, progress is displayed only for projects that have a start and finish date and have enough tasks to calculate progress.
In the Android app, project progress is enabled for all projects in the account by default. You can see it in two places:
In the Android app, all users who have access to the project can enable or disable project progress.
To enable, disable, or change the calculation of a project’s progress in the Android app, you need to enable or disable all or some of the progress metrics. To do that:
When the slider button is grey, that means that this metric is disabled for this project. The blue slider indicates that the metric is enabled.
