Note: Please make sure you include the Make, the Model, and the Operating System Version of your device if you are reporting a bug. This will make the process of confirming and fixing issues a lot smoother! Thank you DEVlANT
Hello everyone!

One of the most common requests from the community has been to update deviantART's mobile site. By popular demand, we just launched a brand new version of the mobile site to Beta Testers! The site is officially supported in mobile browsers on the iPhone and Android phones and tablets.

For a very long time, we've been running two versions of the deviantART website: the desktop version, and the mobile version—and the latter has fallen behind.

As we all know, the previous mobile site was missing a lot of major features. Instead of developing two separate versions of the site—a desktop version and a mobile version—we've formatted the desktop site to fit into a mobile browser. This allows the mobile site to offer many more features than the previous version did, and it also makes for a more smooth user experience. The end result is a seamless mobile site that's a thousand times better than the old one. And it looks a little like this:

What's New


  • You can Browse art, check your Message Center, reply to Notes, browse your friends' Profiles and Galleries, visit the Forums, view today's Daily Deviations and do almost everything else you can on the desktop version of the site!
  • The drop menu usually located in the top left corner of the site can be accessed by tapping on the deviantART logo, allowing users to easily access familiar tools without complication.

  • You can find wallpapers for your phone using the "Wallpaper" app available in the main menu!
  • The Message Center is all located in one place, which makes responding to comments and browsing art and Journals an easier experience. In addition, for users who like to view their Message Center one section at a time, you can tap on the arrow next to Messages, which will prompt the Message Center's left sidebar to appear and allow you to select one section of the Message Center to view at a time.

Try it out!


The new mobile site has now been released to all beta testers, so you can try it out by simply logging into deviantART on your phone! 

Reporting Problems


We're still polishing up the mobile site. There are some bugs and minor interface issues that we're currently aware of, but we wanted to get Beta Tester feedback as we continue to improve it. If you encounter issues, be sure to report them! Any bugs encountered can be filed in the devBUG Issue Tracker under the Mobile project.


DeviantART is excited to launch a brand new mobile site, and we'd like Beta Testers to give it a try first!

Depending on the phone and operating system you're using, you may be able to, yes. :) If you're on the most recent version of Android or iOS, then uploading should work just fine.

What is the normal URL that this mobile site would be using later in the future? If it's a downloadable 'APP' for Mobile Computers (Iphone,tablets,android.) I would not say this is a 'Mobile' SITE as it's more as a Mobile 'APP' as your required to download it to use vs using the integrated browser which uses a Mobile Site set (aka a low bandwidth required URL for cellphone users.) vs launching a downloaded 'APP' (iphone,ipad,tablets,android,etc.).

Huge difference in 'Mobile Site' vs 'Mobile App'

App is required to download/use on Computer phones (Iphone/Android based.)
Site isn't requried to download by computer phones and even old gene keyboard phones from 2000 would beable to log onto (or Nintendo DS,DSi,PSvita, 3DS,Wii.), Cause all they'd have to do is type out a Mobile URL and boom it works. (Like your old m.deviantart.com site used to work as.).
=======================

So what is it? App or Site URL you guys are trying to push out?

Hi there! You should be able to submit to deviantART just fine from the Galaxy Tab 3. You'll want to upload your pictures to your Sta.sh, then go to the Submit page and choose "Select file from Sta.sh". From there, you can submit your work to deviantART just fine. Hope that helps! :)

wreckling Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014   Writer
Hi there! It depends on the make and model of your phone. If you're using an iPhone with any iOS earlier than iOS 6, uploading is not possible, and if you're using Android prior to 4.0, we don't offer support for it either. If you have a more recent OS than either of these, then you should file a bug report at the Help Desk, and be sure to specify the make and model of your phone in your ticket. :)

Is there any possible way deviantART mobile can be incorporated onto the Nintendo 3DS?  Because it doesn't have any Flash or JAVAScript programs, it gives up most times, and doesn't even show me new Notes.

I've been using the Mobile site on my Phone and I'm having problems logging in. I log in and I immediately get bounced back to a new log in screen that says, "Form timeout, please try again." I can log in just fine from my desktop so I don't think it's me.


I've had previous problems with iOS6 when it would bounce me back to a log in screen so I would have to log in twice. Now I can't log in at all on my phone.

I have a iphone 4S and I'm running iOS7. I've tried the mobile and regular version on my phone. Both have the same problem.

this is very frustrating and I would like to know how it's changed back.

I know this is an old post topic September of 2012. It would be nice to be able to brows on my PSP again like I used to. I tried to go to m.deviantart.com but it just switches it back to regular devianart where they pages won't even load because it requires too much memory to load it even if I change my settings. I miss when I was able to pull out my PSP when I didn't have my computer on me and look at DA. I've read other people have the same complaint. Not all of us are rich or fancy enough to have a tablet or a smart phone....

But yeah I hope you people do take in to consideration this request. Or if you have already done so please let me know. If you have fixes it and I'm just too dumb to figure out how to use it please also let me know. Thanks.

I am using the Microsoft Windows 8 phone, and when I try to log on, and it refuses to let me. Oh, and there is no option for me to go back to the old site. When I manage to get there via a lot of work on google, though, it immediately reverts to the new site.

After much fooling around, I managed to solve my problems - but I shouldn't have had to go in such circles. I managed to log on when I tried go comment and it made me sign in (it only worked then), which solved my first problem. Then I somehow backtracked enough to fool my phone and managed to get to a regular page. Somehow I found the "switch to other site" on that page, and so now I'm back onto the original site. I shouldn't have had to backtrack like that and go through cats paws to get here, and I can't even replicate what I did, but at LEAST I managed to get back to the familiar format.

I really dislike this new mobile version :-(
The menu doesn't work, it won't allow you to reply to messages, notes etc, you can't.even browse properly for some reason it just doesn't load. It won't even let me add as a fave and on top of all that there is no option to switch to desktop site. I have a brand new windows mobile phone but dA works horribly on it so in rather disappointed.

I'm curious; I know you've said its under the menu- but if its not there and the m.deviantart doesn't work (Samsung Replenish phone) is there anyway I can switch it back? Or maybe get messages to work?
I've waited and tried to be patient with it; but when I try to even see my messages from my phone it loads up to the Message Notes buttons/part then it just shows the "Deviously serving the art and skin community for 4,524 days deviantART loves you! :heart: " not allowing me to see any of my messages-- I dunno if that's a bug or the new layout; either way sorry if my comments meant more for Bug Inquiry (/owo)/
