  • Canva... the app we all want to love Dec 21, 2018

    By blogbarger
    Let’s start with the good. It’s 2018 and nobody makes a (sort of) desktop publishing app for iOS except Canva. So kudos for taking this project on. That said, the app is so painstakingly frustrating, I’m kind of amazed I still use it. It crashes all the time, weird changes are made when I go to save (wasting precious time), and lots of other very quirky things. Example. When working with text, in order to exit edit text mode, one has to click done. That alone takes forever, but after hitting done no matter what page I’m on in a document, the app leaps forward to the last page. Another example. Try renaming a file. It crashes every single time. Try renaming it again. This time it works. Every single time. The list goes on and on, and things load oh so slowly. So long story short. This app isn’t ready for the field. It’s hardly even beta worthy. But we all still use it. Why? Because there’s nothing else out there for iOS. The moral of the story is that we need other developers to begin working on publishing apps so that we not only have a choice, but so that Canva has some competition. The developers respond quickly, roll out updates, and make promises, but bottom line is the app still remains broken. Honestly, it’s such a chore to use. There is nothing enjoyable about the app and all I hear out there is that when we go to work on a project.... we just pray we can make it through. Upward and onward.

  • Still some oddities in the system Apr 22, 2019

    By A.C. Groffman
    EDIT: Previously, I had written a negative review saying that a recent update had essentially removed every feature of the app that I used for my designs, background color editing among this number. I am happy to say that, for the most part, those features have been restored. I am able to access and edit all my designs on my iPad, and the completion of the update has made usage fairly easy. However, there are still some large issues that need to be fixed which prevent me from giving this app five stars. For starters, I cannot access any templates on my iPad. If I click on the Templates button, nothing appears. I have tried this multiple times; every other tab under the + button works exactly as intended, but it has been a month or so now and I can’t access any templates. This is a pretty big issue for me; the vast majority of my designs use a specific template. The second issue I have is that I still cannot edit background colors on my iPad. This is also a large aspect of my designs, and right now that means I have to switch to my laptop to be able to actually get the design I want. I’d quickly change this review to five stars if these factors were fixed, but for now this remains a frustration for me.

    The support team of Canva is really very helpful as long as you write down the problem you are having in detail. I had the problem of not being able to save or share videos I created with Canva iPad app. After emailing the issue to the support team, they emailed what could be done beforehand, and then sent me a second email saying that it was solved. All in 10 days of time. Thank you so much for your help guys!

    great app, i've used this for both school projects and personal edits (like moodboards) and i've had a good experience with it. but it's lacking a few features; the ability to toggle the grid and borders. of course, i can just make a border with elements but borders would still be easier and useful. and, dark mode is really glitchy, some buttons aren't visible like the duplicate, delete, rotate and move button. it's annoying to have to change to light mode just to edit something on mobile.

  • Leaked my password to darkweb Aug 23, 2019

    By Kayla0725
    So I wish I could rate this higher, because it was pretty easy to design the business card I wanted, it was easier when I went to the website. I was able to make it in 20 minutes on the website vs an hour messing around in the app. However when I tried to purchase the card it would not accept my card, it kept getting errors. The next morning I saw it tried to charge and then refund my card 3 times so not sure what happened there. Still it refunded all of them so no loss of money, just frustrating. I then took a break before trying again to purchase the card I wanted, but in that time I got an alert from Credit Karma that I had had a security breach and my password was found on the darkweb. The site that had the breach? Canva. Now I’ve had to deal with changing any website that I’ve ever used a variation of the password I used there, and it’s not every app and website, but it’s enough to be a lasting headache. TLDR liked the card I made, but I couldn’t purchase it and they weren’t secure enough not to leak my password. 1 star.

  • HATE the Updated iPad App Nov 11, 2018

    By LennyPam
    I’m a long time Canva user and absolutely loved this app. I use it all the time for all my blog graphics. However, Canva recently updated the software for iPad and now I hate it. What was once an easy to use app, is now cumbersome, has less functionality, less ease of use, less user friendly, less everything except the amount of time it takes to create a new graphic. It has got to be about 200% slower. It works very similarly to the iPhone app - which I hate. If I can’t use the old interface, I’m gonna be forced to switch apps. Please don’t make me switch. Don’t make the iPad app function as poorly as the iPhone app. I need speed, ease of use and lots of functionality that works well on my iPad. Not my iPhone, but my iPad. I also can’t edit any of my saved files in Canva as I receive a compatibility error message. PLEASE FIX THIS!! PLEASE AT LEAST GIVE US THE OPTION OF USING THE OLDER VERSION. I HATE THE UPDATED IPAD VERSION. SERIOUSLY. HATE IT! I CAN’T EVEN USE IT, BECAUSE IT JUST SITS THERE FOREVER SPINNING, TRYING TO LOAD AND CAN’T. PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE US BACK THE OLD VERSION. PLEASE. How about if you do away with the iPhone version and just use the old iPad app? That’s a great idea! Or make the iPhone a limited functionality (which, it essentially is). Please give me back the Canva I loved! I am extremely busy, carry my iPad with me everywhere I go and use Canva all the time. Please do something about this!

    Love the site, HATE the app (& I don't like overusing that word). If I was not aware of the desktop version of canva/only had ever used this app alone, I definitely wouldn't use canva, yet the desktop site is great enough I'm willing to pay for premium. It would be great to have some consistency between the two and to have the option to use it on my phone rather than always having to use the desktop version in order for it not to be trash.

  • Great App with a Few Bugs Apr 5, 2020

    By Lexi_Brunner
    I’ve been using this app for over a year now. I really love it. It works well, it’s easy to use once you get the hang of it and you can really design some super cute things. I do get a bug where it will download blurry though so I wish that would get fixed. It’s definitely been happening for over 6 months and that’s a huge inconvenience. I also wish there was some sort of tab that you could open where it would load all of you words or illustrations that you used on your design and then you could edit them from there because once you overlay or underlay something, it’s a huge hassle to fix it if you want to change something. I end up having to move a lot of things to find what I put under something to move it to a better location and I think another little edit button where it took you to everything you used and gave you the option to highlight them or something by clicking on them would be amazing! Just food for thought. I would recommend this app!

    Great app! It provides features that are easy to use even for one who is no graphic design expert. Although, there are paid and free subscriptions available but, free is good for starting. Therefore, I think it's brilliant to install this application on your device and use it to edit Instagram, Facebook, Youtube thumbnail post or any other post that you want to publish in any platforms. Even logos & videos could be edited and much more. Moreover, it requires no expertise. My advice, go for it.

  • Top Quality Mar 26, 2021

    By mlebow910
    This app allows you to not only create your own designs from scratch, but gives you countless of templates to help give that top quality look. I used this app for different type of papers for my upcoming gender reveal. Everywhere I looked didn’t quite have what I wanted so I decided to design my own. I am more than pleased with the results, the paper is top quality and their t-shirts are beautifully made. Their pricing is incredibly cheap compared to other sites I’ve looked into, they saved me so much money. The delivery time as quick and everything was beautiful packaged. The fact that they even plant a tree for every order they receive is just a cherry on top! I will continue to use this company for any future designs. I absolutely adore Canva, thank you to the developers to bring a cheap and easy option to the table. I am extremely impressed, seeing the work your company produced brought tears to my eyes. My gender reveal is going to look exactly how I want it to thanks to you. 10/10 I’ve recommended it to all of my friends! ❤️

  • Good App Jan 19, 2020

    By loriiann hayes
    Hello! Ashley here, just wanted to say that your app is splendid! But there are a few downsides. I don’t know if it’s just me, or if this happens to anyone else, but whenever I try to get into Canva and make a book cover, the app will crash. The same goes for making anything else. Most times, I am successful in getting into the app, but then the app will pause and I can’t do anything about it. The worst is, I’ve reloaded the app and shut off my iPad Mini and turned it back on, just to see that it’s still paused where I last put it. I don’t want this to continue happening. I’ve tried many things to get it to work and it won’t. And yes, I have deleted the app and have downloaded it again to only log in and have it pause AGAIN. Also, if I get lucky, I’ll go three minutes in to making my cover, and then go to the text area and tap on a text to add it, and IT WILL PAUSE! I don’t know why this is happening and I would appreciate it if you did something about it. Before this was happening, the app was doing very well. Thanks for reading!

    This app is great! It has basically any feature needed for marketing. The only complaints I have are that I haven’t been able to use this app to the full extent like I could if I had a little more guidance on how to use the tools and features. It offers so many different options that it is easy to get lost and confused and it is a little hard to figure out how to make what you have in mind. The second thing is that I spent so long trying to build my logo and business card on my phone with the app. I finally got something out of it that I liked, and then I couldn’t find a way to transfer the images to my laptop from my phone. I logged into my same account on my laptop that I had on my phone and the images I already created were not there. Super frustrating given the time it took to figure out how to create what I had already. Otherwise, this app is a great addition to my small business.

  • New Version is not worth it Nov 7, 2019

    By LTWOODRING
    I used to LOVEEEEEEE Canva. I did all of my real estate marketing graphics with it and I was really impressed with the product and the ease of use. After the update to iPhone and iPad the app has been crashing and flickering between pages. I feel the new version allows for less customization and doesn’t use all of the screen space on my iPad Pro which feels like I’m straining to see all the details of my designs. Other annoying things like having to use the search feature to find items like “lines” make this new version almost not worth using. **UPDATE** still using Canva, but still not happy with the ever-changing interface. Y’all are really desperate to get money these days. Now, I can’t even pick a font without having to navigate between free fonts and premium fonts (the free fonts used to be listed at the top, the premium fonts at the bottom. Now, they’re all mixed in). I guess this is what happens when your fav apps start charging users money. I just don’t have a reason to pay a monthly subscription for this yet....and I see there was some sort of security breach for paying users SMH

    I use this all the time on my laptop and I love how simple it is on there and everything is just convenient and easy, but since I can't use my laptop for some reason I'm not getting that same experience on my phone. It's a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it's harder for me to find them and control, I can't change the sizes of my pictures and I can't copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it's stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don't like the size or something else I can't add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can't make the exact changes I want. I also noticed that some of my old savings have fonts but I saved through phone some of them are gone and I can't get them back again :( other than that I'm really happy there is a app version! I also really like that you can have your work every where and other devices! Thats really smart!

  • Photo Folders May 20, 2019

    By HeatherLandry
    May 2019: Thanks for the response, but I don’t use the app much, so I probably won’t bother contacting you. You didn’t even say whether I’m supposed to have access to custom folders or not. I’m referring to folders you create on your PC and sync to your iPhone. Should I be able to access those? Some apps don’t allow it. Thx. Jan 2019: I wish I could try out more designs and features, but I just have no patience for the extremely rare app that doesn’t give the user access to their custom photo albums (folders you transfer to your iPhone through iTunes). Am I really the only person who uses these albums? Because I’m always shocked when an app somehow doesn’t consider access to them important. Sometimes this can be the result of a glitch in the app. I have the same issue with Messenger, and used to have this problem with Facebook, but it was finally corrected. So if the problem is on my end, let me know, and I’ll add more stars to my rating. You can email me at “heatherlandry” through Gmail if you want to.

    The new update really ruins the app, like the buttons (i think it was copy & layer) on the editing screen was removed and now you have to manually add a page, that's actually a waste of time. The button layout was also terrible, why exactly was the add button was changed from right to left? the app would also lag uncontrollably whenever you add 5 - 9 pictures in one page.

  • I want to like it. But, I can’t. Oct 15, 2020

    By notdeseray
    I’ve used this app for a few years now. Both on desktop and mobile. I loved the selection of templates available and the fun add ons too. The app could be great but I run into too many problems. #1 It’s a hit-or-miss in terms of the user-friendliness. Sometimes, it’s very easy to use and adjust certain things. Other times, things will clash and will be difficult to select. I wish there were some consistency. #2 The helpful articles aren’t very helpful. I was directed to a ‘helpful’ article in order to solve my problem. In this article, it asked me to click under a tab and look for a section. The section did not exist. I’m not sure if it was a mistake. But, to me, (because I was requesting a refund) I couldn’t help but think it was on purpose. Why is it so difficult to get a refund! #3 Logging in seems almost impossible. If I go into too much detail, I’ll lose you if I haven’t lost you already. Canva never seems to remember my emails. I have two. I only use one for apps like these. I request a password change and suddenly it remembers my email? What is the deal? The logging-in process discouraged me from even using the app. This app could be great, but the little things discourage me from even trying to login.

  • New update: why? Nov 9, 2018

    By Selena_Ewing
    I believe that the functionality of the design has gone down with the new interface update. Viewing my projects was way easier in the previous design. I find it harder to add in my own logos from external applications. The reason I loved this App was because I could be creative while on the go with my iPad or iPhone but now I will have to return to using the Website version to make the process easier on me which is not favorable. Please don't prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
