Timotheus Final Word
for Passive Online Revenue

Pexels does have a mobile app (on android at least), and you can download it from the Play Store. After you download and log in, you can click on your profile photo, and you will see your stats on the next screen.

You will also see the media you have uploaded so far. And for each of the photo or video, you can see stats; e.g how many views, how many downloads, etc.

Again, if you like to see these screen shots of the mobile app, please watch the video above. The above image is just one of many that I show in the video.
