    Better than dA

    And I mean better all around inside and outside the app. Haven't experienced any huge slowdowns, crashes, or unresponsiveness when interacting. Being able to support more adult content, this is during the tumblr meltdown of flagging everything as nsfw to be nuked or banned mind you, where dA is wishy-washy more dependent on the mod is a plus too. Artists and writers have distinct separate categories that work too, rather than everything getting the same looking thumbnail.

    Great for all!

    To be completely honest, even though the majority of the content creators on this app post in languages other than English, it is still very easy to learn and traverse the app and view some of the most astonishing art around (Usually art with anime vibes and themes). Nonetheless I feel everyone should give this app a chance and give credit where it is due, because a lot of the creators on this app put their heart into their work and it shows!

    Pixiv is amazing!

    Anytime you’re looking for pictures (mainly anime pictures) you can download this app, it’s really easy to use and you can find some really good art from different people, and there’s so much of it! So if you’re looking for some anime/manga, and pictures, this is the place to go... they're also high quality)

    Amazing app to support creative artists

    This app has amazing content from artists all over. Best part is you can give them your support 💯 there is a wide variety of content and there’s something for everyone, so let your imagination soar. Creativity and freedom of expression is what this amazing app has to offer. I highly recommend it. 💯

    English Translation for (Some) Tags!

    This makes the app very enjoyable for people like me who aren't very familiar with the Japanese language. Not all tags are translated and some translations are rough, but it's much better than nothing. It's something I've been enjoying on the desktop site so I'm very happy that it's in the app now.
