Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic app, if it worked
I love Pixiv and honestly, from a usability standpoint, this app is fantastic. It’s clean and easy to use. In many ways, I like the app more than the site itself. Unfortunately, the app crashes every 5-10 minutes, like clockwork. Since I am strictly an English speaker who cannot easily search many of the artists by name, this crashing has caused me to lose many artists I was interested in before I could follow or bookmark them. And obviously it causes me to lose my place when browsing in general.
Also, as a premium member, it would be nice if the app supported artist sorting, which it doesn’t. Kinda lame since I’m paying for that feature and I can’t do it unless I’m at my computer.
Honestly, if the crashing was fixed, that would immediately bump this review up to 4 stars. Add in sorting and it would be 5, easily. But in its current state, it’s kind of a mess. Crashing this often is inexcusable.
Some content may be illegal in your state.
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.
The Better DeviantArt
Uploading art on Pixiv is very easy and well organized. Allowing up to more than 10 and beyond artwork (with storage limitations of course) can be a very good way to create collages or groups you’d like to post. The community is very nice and are respectful. It is primarily a Japanese website, but you can still communicate in English so there is no need to worry if you’re having trouble using it. Pixiv is a very good site to go to for sharing your art and helping out one another for feedback. I’d highly recommend it.
