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!

Hiya! Do you think you can help me? When I delete or reply to a message, the message box just refreshes and I can't do anything to them.

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?
