New: Visually Plan & Schedule Your Posts with the Later Mobile App

Planning your social media posts on the go just got easier.

Today we’re announcing four (yes, four) exciting features on the Later mobile app, making it easier to visually plan, schedule, and manage your social media directly from your phone.

And the best bit? These features are available on all Later plans — including our free plan! Jump into the app now to check them out. Not using our mobile app yet? Download it on iOS or Android to get started.

#1: Auto Publish for Instagram Business Profiles

Available on iOS and Android

Step aside desktop, Later users can now set up Auto Publish direct from mobile! 

Auto Publishing with Later allows users with Instagram business profiles to schedule photos and videos to publish automatically at a chosen time — no push notifications needed.

You can download the app and enable Auto Publishing without having to move over to the web app — all you need is an Instagram business profile and you’re good to go. 

Ready to get started? Here’s our guide to getting set up.

#2: Calendar View on Mobile

Available on iOS (coming soon to Android)

Calendar view is now available on mobile — so you can view your upcoming posts week by week or day and easily drag and drop them to update your posting times!

With Calendar View on mobile, you can get a clear overview of your weekly schedule, toggle between social profiles, and swipe left or right to see your previous and upcoming weeks. Paid plan users can view a full year back or ahead, while those on free plans can see the previous and next two weeks. 

“Using Later’s Mobile Calendar makes planning our content a breeze! I’m able to easily see everything we have scheduled for the week at a glance, and can drag and drop each post to make sure we’re posting at just the right time.” Benton Williams, Director of Social & Digital @catersvillefarmersmarket

#3: Quick Schedule and Visual Planner

Available on iOS and Android

Exciting news! You can now visually plan and schedule your Instagram feed direct from mobile — in just a few clicks! 

Some of you might recognize this feature — we first introduced Quick Schedule on mobile earlier this year. Use Quick Schedule to help you stay more consistent on social media, by choosing up to seven weekly posting slots and times that suit you.

Once you’ve set up Quick Schedule on mobile or desktop, you can use the Visual Planner feature to create a stunning, on-brand Instagram feed on mobile — and your posts will automatically be scheduled to publish at the time slots you’ve chosen.

TIP: Using the Later web app? You can see your Quick Schedule times on there ready for speedy desktop scheduling too!

#4: Add Linkin.bio Links to Existing Posts

Available on Android (coming soon to iOS)

Forgotten to add a Linkin.bio link to a published post? Problem solved — you can now insert and update Linkin.bio links to Instagram posts published via Later, all from the mobile app.

So, whether you’ve spotted a mistake or want to add a Linkin.bio link at a later date, you can quickly update your post from your phone without needing to head to the web app. 

Ready to begin managing your social media on the go? With the Later mobile app, you can build the perfect on-brand Instagram feed. Import media, plan, schedule, and edit your posts right from your phone! 

Ready to Get Started?

Quick Schedule is available on iOS and Android for all plans — yep, even our free plan!
