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 New (January 21st, 2015)

  • Good news for deviants who use Amazon's Kindle Fire mobile devices! The Android version of the DeviantArt mobile app is now available for download in the Amazon App Store.

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
  • Prints
  • Polls
  • Chat & Forums
  • Full Sta.sh access
  • Contest and challenges
  • Commissions, Premium Content, and Downloads

Known Issues

Below is a list of prominent known issues:

  • (iOS only) Content does not load (due to low memory).  To fix, force quit the app and reopen.
  • (iOS only) The app's bottom navigation bar is not present on Profiles.
  • (iOS and Android) Images cannot be added to Literature.
  • (iOS and Android) Images added to Status Updates cannot be opened.  (Update: resolved!)

Get Started and Stay Tuned


If you have general feedback or feature requests, we’d love to hear your input!  Please leave a comment on this journal.


In the event you run into a bug or unintended experience why using the app, please submit your issue to the Help Desk using our iOS bug report and Android bug report forms.

 

Get it on Google Play      

(iOS 8 only, iOS 7 coming soon)

Only if this app had an access to group's comment sections so it would be a lot of easier to reply to people and tell them how to join the group instead of hearing them asking "Where's the Join The Group-button?" when they're using the mobile device or have nothing else than that.

I use my phone for almost all of my computer stuff.
I wanted to reread some of the notes I've had saved for a long time, but on the browser on the phone the annoying top bar is covering the button I would click to view my saved notes.
So I finally caved in downloaded the app only to find there is no way to view my saved notes there either.
Could you at least make it so I can use all of the da features on mobile dA?

As far as I can tell there's no current method to clear or remove watch deviations from the mobile app watchlist.  That feature is critical to the functionality, as right now, we need to scroll through the watched deviations to find things we haven't seen before, and each time it takes us back to the beginning.  The list keeps getting longer as new deviations come in and can only be removed on the website.  It just isn't useable as it is.  It needs a quick, easy method of swiping or a button from the watch page that removes art instantly while browsing it, not hidden underneath layers of clicking on each deviation.

Maybe I've missed the hidden feature, if so, someone please tell me so I can use this app for watching artists as it was intended.

I really hope it's updated again soon. It keeps saying "text/html error" when I try submitting art via app. It's annoying and it's preventing me from posting artwork.

There should be some kind of warning that if you're not utmost careful with your upload, you'll be in some shit if you need to edit later. Like seriously, how is editing not included. How can you even be able to upload if you can't edit.
This is so fucking bad.

I have not been able to play any of my flash animations using the mobile app on an updated iPhone 6. All I see is the non moving thumbnail for the particular animation So far I have not been able to determine weather this function is supported, or weather there is a bug re. flash animations, please let me know what's up, thanks.

I have tried on my iPad, not yet my phone, but neither can support flash so I believe you can not use the chat since it doesn't work on my iPad...I do not believe the app supports it yet, but again, it's relatively new. They're working on it. Promise :3
