A great app for finding fan art and following your favorite artists, but there is a HUGE "r-18", or pornographic content base, so be aware of this if your kids use it. There is a filtering option available, but it is easily disabled. If you yourself use it for this content (I won't judge!), be aware that this app is Japan-based, and they have no laws against artistic depictions of children in sexual situations, and such content IS ACCESSIBLE AND PREVALENT on this app and its base site. Most states in the US have very strict laws against such content, even those depicting fictional characters, and having such content on your phone or computer can be a huge legal risk.

Lovin’ it.


It’s actually nicer than the website for me. It’s nice and clear and smooth. I like being able to see all the pictures all together with one click instead of having to technically open the picture set twice. The only issue I have is that since it’s not in pages, when I go deep diving in a character or tag, I lose my place. So I have to scroll for a while to find where I was. I would like a save my place feature or a pages feature that I can easily find where I was. Then it would be perfect for me. :)



The viewer portion of this app is absolutely wonderful, you can see all kinds of different fanarts and even original characters people have created. However, as an artist, and as someone that would like to let there work be seen. There just isn’t enough ways to let your stuff be seen. I’ve posted several things and after months they still only had maybe 25 people see it. I feel like this is a major downfall, unless this were to change when you buy the premium portion of this. And even then having to pay to get your work seen is sort of sucky :/
