Upwork Mobile App

The Upwork mobile app for iPhone or Android is for clients. If you're a freelancer or agency, learn about our new Upwork for Freelancers app here.


With the Upwork mobile app, clients can manage their Upwork accounts anytime, anywhere. You can find the Upwork mobile app by going to Upwork's mobile page, the iTunes App Store, or the Google Play Store.

Mobile features make it easy to

  • Reply to and compose messages
  • Receive alerts when invitations are accepted or declined
  • Review and reply to proposals
  • Hire freelancers and agencies
  • Set milestone for fixed-price contracts

Note: Our mobile app is a convenient way to discuss projects, view jobs, send files, and more. However, accessing Upwork.com via your mobile or desktop browser will allow you to do much more. We plan to add more features to improve the mobile app experience for clients.


Compatibility Requirements

The Upwork app on iPhone requires iOS 9.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The Upwork app on Android requires a 4.2+ device with Google Play services. This app is optimized for devices under 7" (on tablets, the app will look just like it does on a smaller phone).


Push Notifications

When you download and install the Upwork app, you will be prompted to enable notifications. You can change your notifications in your phone's settings. On Android, you can also customize your notifications in the app's settings.

Why are there two Upwork apps?

To ensure our mobile app includes all of the capabilities our community uses the most, we decided to build a new one, for freelancers, from scratch. We will be releasing a new app for clients in the future.

I have a client and a freelancer account. Which app should I use?

If you use Upwork as a freelancer and as a client, you should keep both apps. The new app is for freelancers and agencies. However, we will be releasing a new app for clients, we’ll let you know when that happens.
