So with the new logo design deviantart has also introduced a new app for the site and I want to share my thoughts on that now.

My opinion on the app... it's useless. Okay that's a bit extreme.  It's all but completely useless. My main gripe with it is how it handles posts from the people I watch. It operates like a Facebook wall where every little thing the people I follow do is made known to me and that not only is inconvenient to me when all I want to do is look at their art, but it also seems a little invasive as well. Yes I know this is the Internet and everything I do on deviantart can be seen anyway but I don't need it announced. I don't need deviantart telling my watchers I just added a deviation to the collection "sexy Transgender furries" or whatever, nor do I want to get that update from someone else. I just want the pictures and so far I can't find a way to turn the other updates off.  Also I want to be able to delete notifications of  new deviations after they're posted through the app so I don't have to log in later and see I have 600 new deviations ready to be viewed. Again convenience through the design is key here.  

Those are my main problems with the app. There are others but they're not worth mentioning right now. As for stuff I like about the app I do love how it allows easy access to my gallery and all its folders for whenever I want to show someone my work on my phone. Also browsing is much better than on the mobile site.

What do you think of the app. Let me know In the comments below.


Even though I have photoshop, I'm really tempted to download Krita right now.
Trying to motivate myself to read some dense literary theory stuff right now. Wish I could just do art stuff instead. Sigh....
I'm sick of all these artists asking me to donate to their patreon. Like I understand they need to eat but come on. It's getting obnoxoius at this point.
Whoa, Status updates on DeviantArt.... guess that's something to distract me from the "art" part.
