Visual Clearinghouse DeviantArt Goes Mobile with New App

Dec 10, 2014

I reminisce, I reminisce…

I recall getting on Android, and finding out how cool it was that I was able to so thoroughly customize a device to fit my personality. Way back then, I found out about this fantastic database of free digital content called DeviantArt.

I admit: the name scared me. But I soon found out that it was the best place to find curated content that can be used in a number of ways. My device wallpapers and backgrounds have never been the same.

And now, finally, DeviantArt is going mobile — really mobile — in the form of a dedicated app.

The mobile app will allow users to check out content, and also submit work and interact with other users. When one considers the amount of traffic DeviantArt gets (2.5 billion monthly page views according to the presser), the app clearly sounds that much more valuable. As is stated in the informational, “Simply put, the DeviantArt mobile app is the world’s largest art gallery in your hand.”

Key Features:

– Today Page – every day, the editorial team will draw from and reflect back to the community a vibrant combination of news, features, curations and conversations.

– What’s Hot, Undiscovered, Daily Deviations and Explore – gives users ways to be liberated and inspired with extraordinary images drawn from an art collection powered by over 33 million artists and curators on DeviantArt. Features like “More Like This” associate images through member-curated Collections to provide endless entertainment and inspiration while traveling through the app by browsing layers of similar art.

– Status Updates – post short updates and in-phone camera images in a simple and direct format that lets users create informal conversations with watchers. Status updates allow users to share how they’re feeling, what they’re thinking, what they’re working on or to share the work of an artist they love.

– Watch Feed – a personalized and easy-to-access feed of every Journal, Collection or Status Update posted by watchlist.

– Notifications – the communication center of the app where users can manage all mentions, replies and other messages. This feature is similar to the website’s Message Center.

– Submit – submit art and literature to DeviantArt or compose a status update to initiate rich visual conversations.

The DeviantArt app is available now on the Play Store for free.
