Comments and Reviews from users:

Andrea Pillars: “There are quite a few ongoing bugs as well as new bugs with this last update. For as long as I can remember, it goes through phases where it is constantly "connecting." Also, sometimes, when I hit the icon to open my pictures or I go to take a picture, it's just a black screen. But now with this new update, anytime I send a picture, it automatically says "message was not sent" even though it sends. 1 out of every 5 times, it doesn't send.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Josh Sutterfield: “It had been a decent app especially for sending voice clips, until recently. Something changed and it really should be reconsidered. Often if you try to listen to a few voice messages in a row, you just can't. Maybe you can get one to play. It used to work. It's a preventable, fixable shame. If you're going to break an old solution the least you could do is release the old solution as a competing product.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Kiai: “i cannot in good conscience rate this app higher until i am able to save photos and gifs again. this has been like this for months now and it's VERY frustrating. please fix this. another issue i find is that viewing photosets and gifsets is absolutely atrocious. if i zoom in and move the image to the side even slightly too fast, the image automatically changes to the next photo. I want to give this app a higher rating, ive been a user since 2012, but not saving photos is a huge problem.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Olivia Tilleman: “Rejoice! Tumblr Live is gone! Still, the new photo viewer is atrocious. The photo viewer barely lets you zoom and it's incredibly difficult to scroll between photos. The search function is almost useless; half the time it returns nothing, and it always excludes certain posts for seemingly no reason. Also, the app is a buggy mess on a good day; on a bad day it's completely unusable and genuinely hurts to look at.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Emma “Frankie” Hedge: “This used to be my main app to draw in, and it has a FANTASTIC array of tools, especially for a mobile app. However, I just cannot forgive the decision to lock previously-free cloud storage space behind a paywall. Since I already exceeded the new limit when it was first instated, every single art file I had in the cloud has now become locked and inaccessible. Do better, MediBang.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Zoe Hillier: “I absolutely love this app! It's free, easy to use, and lets you access custom brushes without premium subscriptions! On top of that, you're not limited to one or two layers, unlike other free art apps I've tried. It's stylus comparable, and- one thing I think many paper artists would love- is that you can transfer line art from an image onto the canvas, which makes coloring in your on-paper art easier and gives it a more interesting look! 10/10 would recomend!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Not sure what all the bad reviews are about. I see people leaving 1 star because they couldn't find the Art Selfie feature, which is literally on the main screen when you open the app. The level of detail you can see what in almost all paintings and other art pieces is just mind blowing, I've never had any slowness or freezing issues, Art Selfie works great, information about museums, paintings, artists, etc is really helpful and educational. Front page is constantly displaying new items, so even if you're getting the app only for the selfie feature you might accidentally learn something.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Now that the selfie-artwork comparisons feature has been enabled in my region, it's a fun hook to using the app to explore various works of art. When I originally tried the app in January 2018 it was not fully functional in my state. Though it took a bit of time, it's good to see the developer address the issues. (As I recall, there were problems with copyright laws in various US states.)” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “The main few (in my case) being journals aren't displaying. Cannot go through deviation stacks, just the latest deviation from each artist. Unable to remove deviations and messages from the feed, I can't even clear the entire feed for that matter. In my view, these are the most resourceful and desired features out of a DeviantArt app. Seeing as artists would most likely upload their work from a computer rather than a phone, not having said features basically renders the app useless. Hope for an update.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The DeviantArt app is just usable. It genuinely isn't thar great, but bettee than the mobile site. There is plenty of issues with it, though I will state some major ones: - The Log-In screen always pops up when you close the app, even when logged in. - You are unable to see the favorites of the people you watch in the "Watch" tab, which you used to be able to do. - You cannot edit submitted deviations. - It can be very slow. I am only using this thanks to me moving.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Just a Random Potato: “Okay so, the drawing is super smooth and easy to do. The brushes are super neat and they have a lot of different options for canvases such as Webtoon and Animation. However, I won't be returning to this app because: it's kinda laggy; the canvas screen is really sensitive so its hard to turn without drawing; it makes Ibis Paint X laggy and break, and you only get 1 free hour a day of drawing and I'm poor. This is an awesome app though, and if I could I would purchase it on a different device.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Alyssa Berger: “I use CSP on desktop. Beautiful program, absolutely adore it. I downloaded the app once companion mode came to android and galaxy, and loved using that. Ever since I upgraded the desktop version to 2.0+ though, I haven't been able to get it to connect again, even when I know both apps are on the same version. It's infuriating and as a webtoon artist who heavily relies on companion mode to make sure everything is evenly spaced and readable, yeah. It's rough.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I love this app so much, but recently I'm having big issues with the transparency in almost all the brushes. I've tried fiddling around with the different settings with no luck. I don't get hold lines any more, only faded, hard to see lines... And like I said that's with almost all of the brushes. Please help me fix this, I want to keep using but if I can't see what I'm drawing what's the point?” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “EDIT: I found out there was an ad you could watch to get the premium features for a limited time! Ok, so it is a good drawing app....When you pay for everything! When you don't want or can't afford the premium features, it's awful. Only 2 layers, hard to understand setup, and I can't even save my drawings in a JPEG or PNG form without paying. I recommend using Ibis Paint X or any other free drawing app if you don't want to spend money.” – 4/5 in Play Store

It's super customizable, I tend to use pre-made phrases but some pretty cool drawings have come from the random ones. I think a cool feature to add would be having a profile to upload drawings you made based on prompts from the app I'd love to see other peoples stuff!

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Was told about this app when visiting the famous Bowes Museum in County Durham today and immediately downloaded it and tried it out. It's brilliant. Worked perfectly (after It's scanned you have to swipe down and left to get the info about that picture). I'm amazed at all the poor reviews but this seems mainly because of wrong expectations. It's intended to work as an info guide for the paintings in that particular museum/gallery. It tells you loads about each painting, including pictures of other paintings by the same artist in that particular gallery. Suddenly going to an art gallery got really interesting for me! Please rate it for what it sets out to do, not what you'd thought it might do.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Fantastic app - like attending a gallery from your armchair. Now allows you to do a text search to find what you are interested in. Good quality representations of beautiful art. It would be even better if you could look at a gallery or artist's collection in slide show mode or by simply swiping sideways, rather than having to go in and out of each picture from the thumbnail overview. Currently swiping left brings up artist info. Also an optional home screen other than scanner, for 5 stars.” – 4/5 in Play Store

It forces you to have a square photo and it will not let you zoom in a lot. I love the idea behind this app, and I especially love the "ideas" button that comes with every prompt.

Navigation is simple and easy enough, overall the app feels like a much better Instagram. Best part is how anti-AI the developers are.
