App Updates: Notes and Notifications!

Tue Sep 1, 2015, 12:58 PM by danlev:icondanlev:



By popular demand, the DeviantArt Mobile App now includes two new features: notes and improved notifications!


Digital artist rossdraws talks about how he uses the DeviantArt Mobile App when he's away from his computer.

Notes

Access your notes through the mobile app, making private conversations between you and other deviants easily accessible on the go.  Notes are synced between the desktop site and mobile app, creating one seamless experience.  Send a note, access your inbox, or view sent items – it’s all there.

Notifications

Just like on the desktop site, notifications on the mobile app now let you filter through various types of updates related to you  including comments, replies, activity, and mentions.



This update also includes some other smaller changes including labels on the navigation icons as well as bug fixes.

until now, all my notification was working, since the past two days, I can no longer display the "all", "comment" and "replied" notification. AND IT IS PRETTY ANNOYING!

Especially since my phone keep on telling me I have new stuff coming, but I can't check them until I consult my computer. What is the point in having the app in those condition.
Could you do something about it because I am not the only obviously, by reading the comments below!

danlev the dA app doesn't sync with my computer. Whenever I get a note or message through dA and read it on the computer, it doesn't sync with the app on the phone that I've read it. Could you tell me how to fix this or add a fix to the app so I don't have to swipe hundreds of messages of my phone beause it doesn't sync?

The notification on my deviantart app of my Samsung has stopping on Sunday. I'd tried restarting my phone and uninstall and reinstall, but I still didn't any notifications. It's even on. Is it the app on my Samsung?

No, still the same. The other apps are working, but not the app of DeviantART. I even check to see if the notification was off, but it's on.

Yeah, mine too. Also it's giving me a network issue. It tells me that the device needs to connect to a network to work properly, but my phone IS connected.
Has the app been updated recently? I didn't pay attention.

It was updated before it happened. I did check on the app to see if it did, but app was already updated.

I turned on all my notifications settings and blahblahblah, yet it still won't notify me. Is it because I logged out and logged back in? (That's what i did)

Can you delete or edit works on the app? I've tried looking for it, but I can't seem to find it 8 // If it's not an option, it would be great if they could add it to the app, thank you <33

Hi there! I yesterday updated my DA app because there appeared an option of push notifications. 
But it just vibrates when a new reply or note is incoming :( I would like to be able to choose by myself how the app should be notifying me about events - by vibration or by a sounds (I prefer phone sonds to use for notifying me, like SMS messages have). But it seems like DA app does not have a settings menu of itself where I could make such adjustments. Could you add that option in future please? ^^;

If it's not an inconvenience, can we get push notifications on the phone itself for when we do not have the app open on screen?

Hello danlev.  sometimes its really corny but a like button can be useful when viewing Deviations.  Unless maybe I have missed it.  I am not always tech savy.  And I can get lazy

The update is nice, but the app is lacking more pretty important stuff.

1) Supporting group profiles.
2) Llama badges and their notifications.
3) Where did the orange thingie go which notified about a new notification?
4) The forums. Where are they?!

I noticed that the Notifications-Symbol is not orange anymore when you have new notifications. It was like that in the previous version. Just wanted to point that out, not sure if it was intended or a bug.

:icondracaeshi:
Dracaeshi Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess it was intended, because in the website, the note notification was more noticeable than a feedback message, and it shows how many new notes have you got.
