Review from Brenton Tenreiro
Absolutely fantastic. I've been waiting for a deviantart app for a while now, and now that it's here its perfect. I can check my profile and browse art, what's not to love? The only thing is I don't believe you can save images, I can be wrong. But still great app ☺
Great app! The only changes I would like to see is a different page for the favs from the people I watch, since I watch a lot of people it gets a bit messy and I'm quite a tidy person, and if we could be able to send llama badges to people that would be great, I would also like to edit my comments that I have made. You do not have to do any of these but if you guys do that would be awsome, even if it's only just one of them, have a great day/afternoon/night! : )
It could be much better. As a frequent uploader, having the ability to check comments and favprites on my posts is nice when i'm on the go, however this app doesn't work on the go! Unless i'm connected to wi-fi, the app won't even load. I tried to fix this once since O2 said that I couldn't get on it due to the mTure content people can submit, I called O2 up to actually get on it and they wanted my credit card details!!! I don't even have a Credit Card!! Another thing that is highly annoying is the app seems to log me out when I haven't been on it for about an hour which is highly frustrating, requiring me to enter my full username and password (sinse it doesn't even remember login details) again and again every tine it does this!!! Please fix this!!! Overall the layout of the app is nice and everything is easy to find but using this app, as per the afore-mentioned cons, is a chore to even come on fod a few minutes to check comments. It hasn't always been like this but few a solid few months now these issues have been apparant to me and lately I have juat wanted uninstall the thing and just use the actual website when i'm at home. Very disappointing app!!
😐 ive updated this app i dont know how many times now and its always the same thing. The push notifications work for like a day before they break again. Seriously? I really wish youd fix it already. And permanently please. Not that i dont love DA.
I've been a member for many years and been thru a lot of growing pains with DeviantART & thru all of it you've still not made an easy to use interface. I haven't explored a whole lot yet but I had to do a lot of backspacing just to get to find the menu settings and I've yet to find search. It shows me one picture at a time while I was in one setting and again it took me awhile to get back to the settings menu. It would be great if it had a pin menu at the top and a different one at the bottom with everything on it that we need it. I like that I can save the pictures.
Buggy mess. For the OFFICIAL DeviantArt app, this could be improved A LOT. For starters, the app keeps logging you out at random times even when you tell it to remember your password. This can get very annoying if I have to sign in every time I want to see a single notification. The lag in this app is unbearable, too. Viewing a profile with a lot of art can take up to a minute or more to load. While it's loading, you can't do anything, so if I click on a profile by mistake, I have to restart the app. You can barely do anything in this app either. You can't do half of the things the web version can, and notifications are unorganized, unlike the web version. So don't waste your time installing this like I did. Find an alternative app or use the web version, because the lack of care and effort in the official app is unbelievable.
I wish we could edit our profiles, folders, and captions in the mobile app. Also seems to favor digital artists, especially for contests that are put out. For a lot of the art I like, I'd rather check out some of the instagram art pages. I use it mostly to post my art though, which is cool except for I posted one drawing on instagram and got noticed more there in 2 days than my entire year on this app with multiple pieces. And last, being able to upload from Google drive and one drive instead of only the phones gallery. Some people don't keep all their photos on the phones hard drive to save memory.
