Using Shopify mobile widgets

Shopify mobile widgets display insights from your Shopify store on the home screen of your mobile device. You can use widgets to keep track of your total sales or total online store sessions for the day.

Each Shopify mobile widget displays insights for a single Shopify store. If you have multiple Shopify stores, then you can add a Shopify mobile widget for each one. You can only add widgets for stores that you have listed in the Shopify mobile app.
