The #DeviantArtApp represents the future.  With its existence, we’re in a position to change the arts (and the world) through technology, empowering artists of all shapes and sizes to do truly amazing things.

With the newly introduced DeviantArt Mobile App for Android and iOS, our goal was to bring you a better, fresher, yet familiar DeviantArt experience — providing more power to do what you want and, more importantly, create deeper connections between your friends and favorite artists.  We have plenty of plans for the future — including Notes and Push Notifications, which didn’t make it into the first version — and we want to hear what you’d like to see next to help shape the future of the app.


What’s Next

  • iOS 7 Support: The DeviantArt Mobile App is currently only available for iOS 8; however, we're committed to supporting iOS 7 in the near future. 
  • Notes: In order to provide the best possible Notes experience, the Notes system will be moving to a more chat-like interface -- both on desktop and mobile.  Notes will be grouped by deviant, which will make your inbox less cluttered.
  • Push Notifications: Push notifications will keep you informed about timely and relevant content -- including comments, Notes, and other account-related activity.
  • Continuous Updates: Development of the DeviantArt Mobile App is ongoing.  We’re excited to release updates every two weeks providing stability improvements and bug fixes.

Watch Feed & Notifications

As we designed the DeviantArt Mobile App, we understood the need to build something that streamlined the DeviantArt experience.  The Watch Feed was specifically built for smartphones and tablets.  While we love the robust tools currently available in the Message Center of the desktop site, the Message Center is not an environment that works well on mobile.  We will continue to improve the Watch Feed and Notifications on the DeviantArt Mobile App to make the art you crave and content you need more accessible.

Possibilities for What’s to Come

The first version of the DeviantArt Mobile App provides an entirely new way to experience the DeviantArt community.  You’ll be able to browse art endlessly, stay intimately connected with your Watch List, and submit art on the go -- and there’s more on the way.  As we continue to develop the app, more desktop site features will be supported.


The following features are not currently supported on mobile:

  • Editing and deleting Deviations, Journals, Status Updates, Comments, Collections, and Galleries.
  • Full Groups access
  • Critiques

I've been fortunate to be involved with deviantART from day one and have held a variety of positions over the past thirteen years. Today, I'm deviantART's Vice President of Marketing.

I graduated college with a Journalism major and Political Science minor, and enjoy all aspects of news and politics. I can often be found watching Fox News, CNN, or CNBC during the wee hours of the morning.

When I'm not working, my hobbies include playing and watching almost all sports (basketball, softball/baseball, volleyball, football, tennis, etc.), traveling, geocaching, investing, and trying to be as funny as humanly possible. When it's time to relax, I'll turn on the television or read a book.

I also used to run GilmoreGirls.org, which was pretty epic during its heyday.

Bolt Award

For her outstanding work with deviantART, Heidi is presented with the illustrious Bolt Award for 2008. Heidi is the embodiment of community spirit, dedication, and drive that makes deviantART what it is today. Her positive attitude and inspiring personality has been an influence on the formation of the site since the very beginning, and without her, deviantART would be a much duller and less magical place.

I mentioned some changes and really wonder how this crap could be the result of people who are on DA at itself - These changes are just ideas from marketing-only minds. But i´m not here to offer my personal behavior or just consume, if i would, i wouldn´t be on DA. I would be on Twitter, Facebook or all this other social bullshit stuff. 
Now i feel relegated to an unwanted part here, to the art-creaters. The new navigation is hell for working with it, but well, maybe it´s quite nice for mobile device users, but this people didn´t create art, they just consume with fickle attention. And if DA troll out all artists, the consumers wouldn´t feel much loyality for DA without art. 

So please, review why this changes had been made, and what kind of people decided it, and for what reason.
Btw.: For the guys with the money: Not even the value worth of DA will rise through more short-time members, cause every one who would invest money would also check the reasons for such a spontaneously appreciation. And this is a perfect example for a economy bubble. Inflated market value at the cost of the worth of tomorrow.
Another point are the new everyone-can-see-what-everyone-does settings. Facebooks history tell us how good this Stasi-like behavior of sites work. Unfortunally the Facebook-guys allready made ther money with it, now it´s too late to make money with the same fuck about. If you want to sacrifice peoples trust for money, you have to be quick, and than run fast like all the other locusts.
At the moment its close to an legally question if you can activate ads concerning to personal informations without even ask of inform the users, that´s close to data-theft(Hey, DA´s lawyers may say this is a controversial statement, but the people who hit the "leave" button surly would have another perspective). Even these ads and settings are made by mistake(then just axe the programmers) they are insultingly stupid. Most of the creating and community-strengthening people are paying members, so they got rights, and place value on quid pro quo.
The actuall things happend in real-world politics as well as on the web show that people are more fearsome than ever before to get disregarded ther self-determination, and angry, if you treat them like DA actually does. If someone behind the site missed to see this - send ´em back to buisness school, but please, don´t sacrifice DaviantArt.

One question:

Why there are always new ads and widget and stuff updates that noone wants? Take a look at your journal, noone wants this. So why are you and the staff are doing this?

Many people here hate things like facebook. So why do you want to create a second facebook here?

I understand that there are people who want this, but why don't you think of the other people, too and make a fast navigation menu to disable stuff like that? And why does it start enabled allthough I don't wanted it? Really, it feels like you think we are your own property when we logg in and those ads are activated without beeing asked.

Yes, you will get more facebook useser with that. But most of them will not create art or something and some artists will leave. In one or two years when art isn't the focus here anymore, the people will think: What I am doing here? I have a facebook account so I don't need an account here.

I made the experience that people of marketing jobs are thinking about things right now and don't think about the future. There was a research study in Germany where people where asked: what do you want? 20 € now or 40 € next week and most of the asked students took the 20 € now. 

So what do you want? 20€ now or 40€ later?

I agree with that whole comment. It is good to have a chat with My friends once in a while, but this is mainly about art. Or at least it was. 20€ now or 40€ later? I think 40€ later. There is always more future ahead of me than the past behind me. The present day will never last. The future will alwas lie ahead. This website may as well be called devaintBOOK.

It feels good not to be alone with that thoughts. I cannot understand why people like heidi only reply to good comments and ignore the rest allthogh the rest ist the greater amount.

I hope they will change it back and try to keep their members with the possibility of disabling things we don't want. I really can understand that other people want that, but why do I have to buy a smartphone to use DA properly?? I cannot create art on a smartphone -.-

yes. In life, you can 't improve on things if you dont want to listen to critisism. if people tell you what you are doing wrong, then you know what you can improve on.

What device do you use for devaintART? it works fine on PC.

Please quit asking me to sign in all the time. The verify your email thing is VERY annoying and making me want to leave dA for a long time, posting my art elsewhere.
