    Love the app!! Not the update so I was happy to be able to switch to the older version. However, I have been trying to switch to the yearly plan for DAYS!! and have had no luck and no response to my quests for help. I have tried all the help questions and I am still not able to get to the yearly plan option. Customer service needs lots of help.

  • 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.

    Bring back the old canva. Why complicate good things?? This app used to be so quick and cool. And the update has ruined it totally for me. I would now probably be looking for some other app now. Where canva was my one stop solution for everything, now it's nothing like before. Full of glitches and problems. The previous version was more convenient. This is more time consuming.

  • 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.

    Edit: So much easier to use with the new update, which mirrors the website. Much better than before and easy to use. Love it so much. - Not nearly as versatile as the website. This app constantly flips my photos 90° and I can't undo it ans have to start over. Also, the frames are hard to utilize in the app.

  • 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!

    The new updates do have interesting features, but it keeps lagging, often I can't paste texts or edit them the way I want them to, and sometimes the downloaded result is different from the one I designed (such as different color, different positions, and even twice the downloaded result were only plain white with nothing on it). I've been using Canva for over a year, this updates are annoying.

  • The update ruined everything Apr 20, 2019

    By Steph Pen
    I used to really like this app, and I would use it all the time like 9 months ago, and I’ve been using it since, just not as much because it’s changed a lot and it’s getting so hard and annoying to work with now. First of all, the college lay out I would use the most is no longer on the app, which makes me really mad since it was my favorite one. Secondly, whenever I save something, it saves completely different than what I originally had. It takes me opening and saving it again 3 more times to get close to how I wanted it to save in the first place. Lastly, editing is getting SO annoying and hard now. Before, editing a picture within a collage was really easy, just double tapping and zooming in or out. Last month, whenever I double tapped the picture, there was a lot of pictures and lines overlapping each other which made it really confusing and annoying to edit, but now, I can’t even do that. Whenever I double tap a picture now, it takes up the space of the entire collage and it doesn’t even let me edit it. It doesn’t let me zoom in, out, or even let me move it around, it just goes back to how it was. This is really stressing me out, and I use to really love this app. Please let me know if there’s a way to fix this, because it’s very hard to use the app for all these reasons.

    Used to love it. The update this week is infuriating. Editing text on mobile is ridiculously difficult. Fonts I want don't exist (Georgia? Garamond?), or I have to scroll past a couple alphabetized lists to find it (Montserrat). I can't add bullet points without adding them to the entire text box. Even moving text around is difficult. Going to look for a different app. Microsoft Paint is more user friendly than this

    Dear Canva Team. Your update from yesterday to today , has screwed and messed up all of my designs. The fonts are screwed, the text overlaps, and sometimes appear outside the design box. I am talking about thousands of designs and almost all are messed up. This only happened this morning 15th January 2021. It's seems you have tried to make the mobile app just like the desktop, which has literally messed up and screwed up all my designs on my mobile device , which I literally use for everything..

  • 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.

    I loooove this app but I wish the android version had two things. 1) color dropper to select colors from an image 2) option to slip photos and clip art pieces. Otherwise its wonderful and I recommend to so many people all the time. Edit to add I see as im updating now that a color picker has been added - so just that flip feature now i don't know if I could ask for more!

  • 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!

  • Canva is the best! Feb 13, 2019

    By Laura Mellark
    I have been using Canva for a while now and it has never disappointed me. Never! Sure there’s paid elements to site but the free options are just as high quality and I can always find what I need in the free options. I use Canva for making programs for my children’s theater productions, posters for my sister’s band events, invitations for all my occasions, and literally every other need I have for graphic design. I sent the last program I made to a professional printer to have them stapled and put together to save time on our end, and they said the file was absolutely perfectly made and laid out. They even said they were going to start using Canva too and recommending it to their other customers. I can’t express enough how much I love Canva! Now I do prefer the website just because it’s on a bigger screen buuuuuut, you have almost all the options in the app as you do online. And you can save designs right to you phone. Anyway, Canva is an excellent service!

    Used to love this app, still do but it's strength was the simplicity of the user experience. I understand the thinking behind the updates but some should have been staggered and also the speed of use should have been considered as well as the interface (a touch-screen phone).

  • 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 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.

  • New updates make app useless Nov 23, 2018

    By Crazykellsbells
    I’m a long-time Canva user and have the yearly business account, which I use often. I was thrilled when they first came out with a mobile app and have also used this frequently and had it work fine. However, in the past month or so they have introduced new updates to the app which have made it completely useless. It crashes every 30 seconds when you are trying to edit (not an exaggeration!), so you can’t use it to make any new projects. I often use it on the go to make small edits to Instagram templates for my company’s social media accounts, but even something as simple as editing a color causes it to crash. I usually buckle through and after many crashes and swear words I can get the minor edits done, but then when I actually go to save my project it will export without any of the new edits and I end up with an old version of the file. I’ve taken to screenshotting my final project in order to use it. Super frustrating, and I hope the developers fix these issues soon. Even my husband knows how much I hate the app issues because I complain about it every time I try to use it!

    This app gets worse and worse with every update. I have uninstalled and installed this app probably 10 times now. This last time I went in to use it. I can't even edit any of my posts. Fonts stack on top of each other. Even after they've been edited. The only help you get from customer service is too uninstal and clear everything. Which I have done and it still does not work. Going to move on to Adobe's version and see if it's any better can't get much worse then this.
