Lol I only use my phone I've never been on deviantART not on my phone

I only use my phone to phone. I don't understand how one can spend so as much (if not more) money as for a computer, for a device that is actually a locked-down computer, that doesn't let you do all the things you could do with a computer... For the price of some smart phones, I could buy 2 laptops. Add in 20€ for a 3G modem and there you go.

Well, some people like apples, while others like oranges. :) 

My smartphone was only $70 (56€), and my mom's smartphone was $40 (32€), so they don't all have to cost you an arm and a leg! XD 

As for people preferring their phones over PC's n' the like, it's just a personal preference, you know..apples...oranges...

I love my laptop, but prefer using my iPad to draw (I have a hard time interpreting dimensions n' such on my laptop...for whatever reason.) My smartphone is fun to make quick sketches on, especially because it's pocket sized, and very mobile.

edit: Sorry, I didn't realize your comment was so old!

Never mind, better late than never :D ;-)

Yes I understand portability is a pro. I carry my computer and hard disks
in my super-heavy backpack everywhere, like a full-fledged geed, myself :-)

As for touchscreen, I think it's an overused fashion (often an actual -even tiny-
keyboard would be more convenient), but indeed it is unmatchable for certain
things, like drawing !

So I certainly get your argument :-)
Damn-It-Sammit Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! I used to do that (I use portable hard drives as well, they're pretty nifty). 
My newest laptop is only a few months old, and costed me more than one paycheck, so I try not to lug it around too much (it's my baby..haha.)

I'd NEVER get a touchscreen computer, I'd rather use a tablet to draw with (which I do). Touchscreens are really touchy, and I'd rather not break them (I definitely don't have the money to do that now!) but then again, I draw on my iPad and haha, what am I talking about???

I wish dA had an app on the google play store. That would make things so much easier for me.

Hmm... I chose "Never" a little while ago, but now that I look back at this, I'd want to change my vote to "Occasionally." Meow :3

I'd use it a hell of a lot more if I were able to upload from it!

I go on deviant art on my phone a lot!

Sites consider my 3DS a mobile device, so I'm going with rarely. Doesn't run very well on the 3DS, actually, runs horribly.

If there is something DeviantART should've done a long time ago, that is making an app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone Store, and Windows Store. I still cannot believe deviantART hasnt made that. The reason why sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have become successful, is because they have a good mobile platform. There are even sites like Instagram or Vine that are only mobile. In this new era we rely on apps, on notifications in order to keeping up with things. Please DeviantART do this for us.

My cell phone doesn't have internet.
Marina-artt Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013
the andorid app is really really bad. It's just a browser with adverts, it's not a real app. When I click something it's ages before it charges the page and I can not do a lot of things with it. 
Piggythestrange1 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i would use it more ofter but the app for deviantart is shit mind my language but it has some marjor problems that need to be address
Little-Red-Boots Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
DeviantART REALLY needs a mobile site. it is way too hard to use this site on an iphone.
Aubzy Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

I always use my iPad and iPhone to go to my dA. I upload my drawings using my iPad and iPhone too because I frequently draw on them with the drawing app called: ibisPaint. 

★I would be very happy if DeviantArt had an app in the Apple App store! Being a free app would be really great but I would also love to buy the DeviantArt app if it's not free. Just don't make it very expensive. :) 

Even so, please make a DeviantArt app in the App Store! PLEASE!

Sorry for the spam. Stupid phone!
DarkDragonWarriorDDW Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I am using my phone to go on deviantart a lot but it needs a mobile version. The only reason I us it is because I am very patient. I can't submit any deviations from my phone and this is annoying because it is the device with all my pics. Like my pets and stuff. So we really need a mobile app. Also I need to refesh the page to see if I get any messages so I need something included in the app that would notify you when you get messages and other things like that. Just like a text or email. Well if anyone reads this, I hope I gave them an idea and thanks for listening to me! Pluss this app needs to be free because a lot of people on this site are young and are not aloud to pay for anything.

my phone nokia asha311 is a dang shit,i dont even know how to navigate around the website.
ArtsyMaria Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Professional General Artist
I chose Occasionally as I TRY to use it sometimes, but the site sucks and my phone is old and slow! It just doesn't work out so I usually end up getting depressed and have to wait until I can reach a PC....
Vigorousjammer Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I have a shitty old Android smartphone... but even if I had a better smartphone I wouldn't want to check DA on there because the resolution would never be as good as my PC's monitor.

I'd use it more if there was a app for android, the sit on my phone is hard to navaget for me, and too ify.
Renkindle Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
XD I don't even own a phone in the first place~
AshleyDUBS Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Theres a mobile version??
SimsFan01 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013
I use a 2012 Uniden tablet version 4.0.4. And Flash doesn't support it yet, sadly. So I chose Never, since it's true.
humanoid76 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Please tell me how to use on a mobile phone...(=_=; )
no apps, Browsers can't work to show me this site and of course I can't operate.
SimsFan01 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013
Yeah, if there was an app, I'd have to wait till my tablet's known (I know they said "excluding tablets" but still, you guys are... kinda lucky). XD
cinamonbunny Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
i dont use it on a phone cause i dont have one.
i only use my tablet and computer to go on DA
Lunarelle Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I never used it on a phone because I don't have one yet..... (.__.)
I tried once on an iPod but it was super-laggy and slow, and I couldn't really do anything on it.....
And the other time was when I showed my Dad one of my deviations on his phone . . .

. . . That's about it.

PoseableDoll32 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Rarely cuz it is wicked to try to do anything on it!
Milkii-Ways Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I usually go on my iPhone to check dA
since Im too lazy to get to my laptop lD
It's harder to click on things though l;
MissJojo33 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013
I prefer using my cellphone to browse because it is easier and easier to carry around. Soo.. please make it easier to use deviantART on mobile
UndeadHeadArt Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Make a damned app already!!!!
Cold--Nostalgia Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It'd be much easier if there was an app
citrus-smoothie Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I use it everyday on my ipad
Dawnasaurous Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I haven't used it much on my mobile until recently, but when I do it's hard to navigate around the site. It would be amazing if Deviantart made a mobile app that helped with that! ^~^ Then i would probably used it on my mobile more, since I only use it now when I have to. But if it was easier to navigate, I would go on it using my mobile at least twice as much as I do now.

alexyorim Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I sometimes use DA on my NokiaX2. I wonder how it would look like on other phones?...
I also once used it on a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet. Even posting an artwork in here like this one:([link].

It was great. Connecting to the site on mobile was the challenge though...
InsomniaQueen Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's next to impossible to use :\
