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.
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!
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.
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....
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 . . .
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.
I had no choice at the time! I had no real internets! I do have it now. If there would have been a workable uploader for the mobile version I might have used it more and would continue to use it when away from home.
I tried loading "The Desktop Site" on the smart phone and tried to submit art that way. But, the uploader you have won't actually upload images from my phone. Which, to me makes it really pointless to even use. Sure, I could check messages and everything but .... I have a ton of memory on my phone and I can move images I have done from the computer to the phone. So, I had hoped I could still submit my hard work from the mobile. No such luck.
I don't use it on my phone, but that's just because I don't like mobile sites in general. It's very inconvenient in comparison to apps, I rarely use the browser of my phone. If there would be an app, I would use it at least several times a week.
I think I would if there was away to connect our DA accounts to our instagram accounts whether the names match or not. Deviantart could have their own instagram app at that where DA users could edit and attract artists and fans to their page. Just an idea, I'd be on board for that for sure!
