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 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)

The ability to clean out notifications on one's watch is really crucial to making this app actually usable. Why is it not a thing?
You add useless status update feature...which is already a short version of something we had already, journals but no way to declutter one's watch...what? Why?

What about the ability to delete a post? Been looking everywhere but cant seem to find anything about deleting my cringy bs on mobile
SirSuetic Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
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.

Hmm... the App could be better!
BrandyKoopa92 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist

DracoTempest Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I have the same problem too. :/ I can't get anything other than the preview picture on my deviations and others.

The edit feature needs to be added! I posted a journal from mobile and for whatever reason when I went to go edit it on my pc (since it is a live journal) it wouldn't let me
Grifkin Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I need the edit quick, I accidentally hit publish too soon on my literature post and can't change it.
ChaosDancer12 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
It is possible to edit your literature post using the Stash writer app thing if you assess your post on a browser.
Grifkin Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I did that, but thanks a lot anyway. :}
ChaosDancer12 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
It's okay.
ROFLTURKEY Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
How do I delete submissions. I've uploaded several pieces at ridiculously bad times and they hardly get any exposure :/
Maiden-Chynna Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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?
gpsc Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Lol all the new features they added and it still can't perform the most basic functions like removing a notification
ROFLTURKEY Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Holding down on the notification may help if you haven't tried that.
Jakepearl Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2016
protip: update your app often and listen to the community. that way,your app dosen't suck. 
Fan-Arts101 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
How do you make and put pictures folder in the deviant art mobile app? I have a hard time with it
SkyDreamer-Nya Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Is there not a save password option because its quite annoying to have to log in each time i open the app
Jasmine-Lotus Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Is there a way to view my st.ash on the DA app or on a phone?
NessaLILY Featured By Owner May 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hopefully the add in the group access and editing soon
Uroscion Featured By Owner May 15, 2016
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.
VampireHostClub Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2016  Student General Artist
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.
FISH3BOOT Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2016
I use the app a lot and it's really helpful but I have limited access to computers so it's quite frustrating to not be able to do everything I want to do. I hope it's updated soon. :peace:
Slipmaskin Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
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.
boscogray Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2016
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.
cloeclock Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What feature are you currently working on? I can't wait for the group access.

Their should be a way to delete watch notifications....

And if there is way, I don't know it. ^^;
Breevsto Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
How do I clear notifications from my watch list? Still trying to figure it out.
