PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FOR NOTES
The DeviantArt Mobile App — now with millions of installs on iOS and Android — brings the DeviantArt experience to mobile phones and devices. With so many deviants using the app to upload art, browse and comment on deviations from people they watch, check their profile, send notes to their friends, we get a lot of feedback about what features deviants want to see next.
Today, we released push notifications for notes, a highly requested feature and the first of many notifications on the app.
When you receive a new note, you’ll receive a push notification on your phone, letting you easily respond to friends and fans even quicker.
An update to the Mobile App is now available in the iOS and Android app stores. Once you open the updated app, you’ll be prompted to allow push notifications once you log in.
More Push Notifications To Come
Push notifications for notes are just the start. The next steps include the ability to receive push notifications for more actions on DeviantArt. Please feel free to share you feedback in the comments on what push notifications you’d like to see next, and how you’d like to be able to customize them.
Another top mobile request we’ve received is the ability to download deviations. Especially useful in choosing backgrounds for your phones, this feature is now available on all deviations that have downloads available.
To enable your deviations for download, simply check the “downloads” checkbox in the submission process (or while editing an existing deviation).
