Great app but feels like it gets the short end of the stick
This is a great app but it feels like it’s in the shadow of its website counterpart. For and example the website your able to send request which is their newest feature. The problem is that if you use the app your unable to send a request or even know who accepts request unless you go to the website. This isn’t the only feature that isn’t on the app but the one I’m using as an example. The thing is that if these feature are apart of pixiv premium then that isn’t fair to the people who can’t afford it at the moment. So what they could do is limit the function but if that isn’t the case then it would be great if they add some of the features from the website to the app so it could stand on par with the website.
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.
Some content may be illegal in your state.
A great app for finding fan art and following your favorite artists, but there is a HUGE "r-18", or pornographic content base, so be aware of this if your kids use it. There is a filtering option available, but it is easily disabled. If you yourself use it for this content (I won't judge!), be aware that this app is Japan-based, and they have no laws against artistic depictions of children in sexual situations, and such content IS ACCESSIBLE AND PREVALENT on this app and its base site. Most states in the US have very strict laws against such content, even those depicting fictional characters, and having such content on your phone or computer can be a huge legal risk.
It’s actually nicer than the website for me. It’s nice and clear and smooth. I like being able to see all the pictures all together with one click instead of having to technically open the picture set twice. The only issue I have is that since it’s not in pages, when I go deep diving in a character or tag, I lose my place. So I have to scroll for a while to find where I was. I would like a save my place feature or a pages feature that I can easily find where I was. Then it would be perfect for me. :)
The viewer portion of this app is absolutely wonderful, you can see all kinds of different fanarts and even original characters people have created. However, as an artist, and as someone that would like to let there work be seen. There just isn’t enough ways to let your stuff be seen. I’ve posted several things and after months they still only had maybe 25 people see it. I feel like this is a major downfall, unless this were to change when you buy the premium portion of this. And even then having to pay to get your work seen is sort of sucky :/
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!
I usually write reviews to say good things but for this app I have to complaint. Believe me, it's good once you're in but logging in is a whole odyssey. I've been trying to log in since this afternoon and all it says is: "an error has occurred", not even a "your password is wrong" or "check your I'd again" so I went and changed the password and the website did let me log in but once I tried to log in in the app the error message popped up again. And I've deleted the app twice and it says "get" not the typically download again cloud icon, I don't know if that is too important though, but please, if I can get some help with my issue please.
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)
WAY Better than deviantart’s app
I just wish there are English translations of the comics and language so I could understand better. But all in all I’m able to favorite various artworks of my favorite characters and series! However, it’s best to use this on mobile. There is literally only one tag we can block... I need to block problematic ships drawn by the users so I won’t get uncomfortable despite them being fictional.
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. 💯
Works for the most part!
It’s pretty user-friendly, but I’d appreciate it if notifications worked? I’m only ever notified of someone liked a submission, but I never know if someone wrote a comment/bookmarked my art unless I manually check. Also, there’s no option to save particular tags in the search bar, in comparison to the desktop version! It would be nice to include it! 😊
English support is fantastic!
Ever since Pixiv allowed for English translation of tags, I’ve been using the app more and more. My Japanese isn’t perfect, so I sometimes have to throw a few terms through a translator, but otherwise, Pixiv is a great place to search for art. My only complaint is that the app crashes more than I’d like. But aside from that, an excellent app, better than previous versions.
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.
Great but Difficult Place to Find Art
A lot of my favorite artists use this website and sometimes I try to browse, but it is difficult due to needing premium to even look at a piece of popular artwork, whereas you can take a long route to search the same artwork away from the app, which is really annoying.
This app has mostly great art but there is some stuff on this app the is disgusting and awful, I find it quite disgusting how some people actually find time in their day to draw awful things and people like it. I’m not going to go into detail but I’ve seen torture on multiple occasions on this app and it’s very unsettling, and as I said there is great art, there’s also an awful and quite depressing side as well I’ve uninstalled the app because of these images they have mentally scared me.
