I really like it, it's super good for a first release. The lack of a proper message center is probably it's biggest fault at the moment. You can only view deviations by ppl you watch if you go to the watch feed, and you can't remove them from your messages. I hope they include the message center in some future update.. other than that, it's working very well, it's even quite lightweight and my crappy phone can run it mostly without problems :)

It's pretty much the same as the phone mobile version.

The only real difference is the ads at the bottom and when you open it.

You still cant change boxes on your page, just like mobile, you still get the remove messages glitch when viewing individual arts, and it still asks you to open the app in the app.

Same, frickin thing.

That's odd... The app is very different from the mobile version is what I hear here.

it's horrid, especially for those who watch a lot of people. the notification system is set up all wacky. instead of being separated by submitted deviations, journals, and all that stuff, it's separated by user. and you get notified about what the people you watch favorite for some reason? it just buries things and there's no easy way to get to the bottom of your notifications

and there's a separate tab for notifications directed towards you, but they're not stacked like they are on the website and are just listed chronologically, which also buries things

also the color's ugly

Idk, it's alright I guess
The first version is kind of just a test I think, since there's no notes or anything yet
I also can't find where the deviations and journals in my messages might be...? I only see feedback stuff ono

BUT apparently they're going to fix up the notes, I think for everywhere, and make them easier to use and find past notes too or something
So I'm happy about that :dummy:

I got it on my mom's iPad (She doesn't really use it much) although I had to update it first which was a pain cause I had to delete a lot of apps...
Although the app is a bit complicated at the moment? Hopefully it gets better in later updates. The interface looks nice and I like the colors they use. The biggest problem I noticed is that I wasn't getting all the replies to my comments? I'm not sure if it's because I didn't do the comment on the iPad or if anyone else has that problem. Although at the moment I think i'd rather go in safari and use deviantart there. ^^'

I have it on my tablet. It's okay but remember, this is version one. Most apps we like have been through many versions and have changes and stuff added and a lot of user input. Honestly, for a first release it is very good. The app has not been made for those guys who use dA as a social network, it has been made for those interested in art only and if art is what you are searching for with this app, then it does that superbly :nod:
