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!
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 smartphone....so haha, what am I talking about???
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.
