Good but not Great
The idea of the app is clear, a sort of path or shortcut for you to enjoy dA content (photos). It works the way is supposed to such as showing pictures. You have where to choose from options like drawings, paintings, photography. Let's say is a mini deviant art gallery, except on your iPhone/iPad, but the app has its limitations.
Look for the many pictures, click on it and enjoy, that's where the problem comes. Click back and click on another to enlarge, where is the slide photos, for an app that charges $0.99 this is a must that should have been added to it.
I have no complains for not been able to log in, or to have copyrights and adding comments or seeing artist's profiles because you can just log in on your browser, we know what copyrights is all about.
The app could be better, should get updated, better icon? Hmmm yeah...why not, necessary? Not at all. You want to check the content, least thing I notice is the icon. For marketing is a must but thats not my job.
Enjoy the app, give it a try.
I love that this app makes it easy to browse DeviantArt. However, it does not properly export to Safari, nor does it give the author's full copyright requirements. It DOES make it easy to save the image to my device.
This is a big no-no. Artists have the right to set limits on how people use their work. Since I can't access the full page (it opens in safari briefly before diverting to a different website), I can't in good conscience download stock photos. I doubt most people are this concerned about copyright violation.
The artwork is awesome! Love that I can easily save to my iPad. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because I cannot scroll through the artwork. I must hit "done" after viewing one piece, go back, and click another piece of artwork. Would be so much better if I could just flip from one full screen to the next.
