Buenísima app

Muy buena app para crear tu propio logotipo
The best design app!!

I’ve used this app to make logos for my business & it’s super easy.. I absolutely love it
Super cool

Práctico. Me ayuda mucho.
Love this app!
by Jay Mc cleavlen on 2020/10/23 01:15
I use this for everything! I love how easy it is to use, and all the elements to the app and website! I recommend using the website, you can do more than on the app. The only thing (which is the same for many apps and websites) is that your design won't save if you have the app or website open on multiple devices.
Super

App locks up

Love love love Canva but lately it is not accessible from my iPad where I work most!! Click on a format and it does nothing. So frustrating. PLEASE fix this for mobile users. I feel more people work on a phone or tablet now and it’s mind blowing its not functioning. I need this app to work please!! Will probably become a pro member but NOT if I cant get it to work properly. Thanks!!

i was looking through all of the pictures, and most of the people/models in pictures were caucasian or white. can we get a more diverse selection of pictures for poc? edit: it turns out that it was only for certain topics, like when i searched up education or education for girls, sorry!
GLITCHY ON IPAD

what happened?!?
by Photo1257 on 2020/10/22 02:31
On the rare occasion I can get the app to load, it crashes within minutes. I have tried to use the app many times over the last 10 days to two weeks. It is completely useless!
Why
by Chelskavitch on 2020/10/21 21:56
Why do I pay monthly for an app that won’t load on my brand new iPad Pro
Fantastic
by El Rhyne on 2020/10/21 21:35
This app is very easy to use. It is simply wonderful.
Business Cards
by Sydberry on 2020/10/21 21:23
I love this app. Only thing I didn’t love is how my business cards were printed. On the app everything was centered correctly but on the business cards some words are not centered correctly. It makes my business cards look unprofessional. I probably won’t order business cards more from them anymore.

I’ve had this app since Jan 21,2020 Canva Pro Monthly. I’ve never received access to the PRO version. I’ve reached out several time via email. Nothing.. I didn’t want to leave a bad review the company forced me by not offering a proper solution or response via email. I have a business, and I don’t have money to giveaway. I don’t care if it’s $12, $1000, or 50 cents. The app has potential, but if I can’t use what I’m paying for what’s the point? Glad I’m a graphic designer. That’s what I get for looking for a cheap way out. You think I want to be on the phone waiting all day to talk to Apple about a refund. No.I.Do.Not... especially since I work for them. I’ve completed all the troubleshooting prior to reaching out to Canva earlier this year... Still nothing. Just offer me a job Managing the customer’s experience or IT. This would never happen to someone else. Consider this my Resume. ————————————————————————— MLXY5QK545 $0.00 MLXYG0B0L6 $12.99 MLXYMYZ9DW $12.99 MLXYY6GVHH $12.99 MLXZ604Z84 $12.99 MLXZHJ0ZY4 $12.99 MLXZ534WSZ $12.99 ML00HYXSK $12.99 MLY07SHLVQ $12.99 MLY0HMG8QV $12.99 (Oct 21st 2020...Current)

Used to love Canva
by StephanieRaymos on 2020/10/21 17:06
I loved Canva so much with android. But on the iOS app there’s no way to change the colors of an element like I used to. The colors are the MOST important part for my branding images. I don’t have an android anymore so this is a major deal breaker for Canva pro. Will be looking for other options.
Great Tool For Invitations!!

No response to reported issues
by thereuhaveit on 2020/10/21 15:43
I pay for a pro subscription & it doesn’t sync with the online log in. It’s tedious and time consuming to try to use only the app, then forward it to my email, download to my computer and if I need to make a small change to the design, I have to do it all over again. I’ve contacted them twice and received no reply. I got an email saying they were closing my issue and marking it resolved since so much time had passed. So frustrated!
Becoming Unsatisfied
by AlwaysQueenin on 2020/10/21 14:08
I have been using Canva for my business for a little over a year and I’ve really enjoyed it up until recently. The transparent logo I created on the app is no longer transparent. I am having to create a transparent logo on a different app, which doesn’t make sense being that i should be able to do it on Canva like I’ve done in the past. Also, I am currently trying to create a promo video and each time I try to add the video, Canva blanks it out and the app closes. At this point, using this app is useless and I’m now in search for a better one.
Waste of Time
by imLaurenAc on 2020/10/21 13:16
It never works. The app constantly hangs, can’t save work, won’t download. It’s completely pointless.
All it does is freeze up
by Brandyr10 on 2020/10/21 13:08
It did work fine on my iPad and now it will not do anything. I open the app and it just freezes. You can’t do anything I end up closing it and going to another app. It works fine on my iPhone but not my iPad where I do most of my work. I would never pay a cent for this app, Garbage!
Cant work without it👍🏽
by 1TouchM on 2020/10/21 06:47
I've been looking for a Logo App A LONG TIME for branding purposes and this one fits the bill in all areas of classy styles, marketing, designing with ease & saving/uploading to all my devices without all the ads or hidden costs👍🏽THKU‼️NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME😊
STOP 🛑 ✋🏻 🛑 THINK BEFORE DOWNLOAD!!!
by CorGonzo on 2020/10/21 03:04
Look this app takes A LOT of patience to use : I don’t have patience. I first downloaded this app for a school assignment and it worked fine the first time. If you’re like me and don’t want to waste time - don’t download this. Yes this app is OK but it’s too glitchy. It always glitches when I try to edit something and it refreshes the page so that I can’t edit anything , also you have to pay for most of the features. If you don’t want to pay for anything don’t get this app. The only “good” thing about it is that it has cute stickers and backgrounds.... that’s about it. Download some other app! This one wastes my time!
NEEDS AN UPDATE FOR IPAD OS
by The smartest person ever on 2020/10/21 00:20
Crashes every time I open the app. I’ve tried deleting the app & re-downloading it, resetting my WiFi connection, restarting my iPad, nothing works. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE ASAP I RELY ON THIS APP FOR FOR WORK

Colors Changing
by Birthnomics on 2020/10/20 19:35
The app has changed the colors of my designs. As soon as I try to edit a project, all the colors change. Even if I save the original design without any edits, the file saved alters all of the colors. This has been happening for weeks and it’s happening on both of my iPhone devices. I can’t be the only on experiencing this issue. I haven’t been able to use the mobile app for this reason because none of my designs have my company colors anymore.
App hasn’t worked in weeks
by kellilayne on 2020/10/20 15:26
I absolutely love Canva but for some reason my app on my iPad hasn’t worked in weeks. Pretty annoying especially since I pay monthly.
Mostly free and convenient
by fikergd on 2020/10/20 15:18
I am personally obsessed with Canva and the many templates and creative tools for everyone... it’s the perfect for short video projects, posts done in such a short amount of time. Have fun with it!
Love this app
by Kodylove on 2020/10/20 14:10
This app is so amazing to use. The interface is pretty awesome to be honest; I’ve learnt so much about graphic designing by using this app. However, one thing I miss since the update was the vibration and aligning assistant in the app. Usually when I’d rotate something it would automatically just start to vibrate or show the alignment markers so I’d know it’s in line with other text or it’s centered, it doesn’t do that anymore and for me that’s frustrating. All in all it’s a great about for creators across the board and that new update with the videos and music and the new lil tweaks and elements are great buuuttt bring back those alignment lines and vibration.
So frozen I can’t click a single thing
by nonbeanary on 2020/10/20 08:18
I just downloaded the iPadOS version of Canva’s app and what an enormous disappointment. It was working fairly well (4/5 stars) on my iPad in Chrome. I figured the app would be better, but it is unusable. I was able to log in, but then it completely freezes on the home screen and I restarted it about 5 times. Oh well back to the web browser version, I guess?

Crashes and Freezes Constantly
by Shelbie123 on 2020/10/19 21:53
My software is up to date. I can’t even use the app. When I login and try it freezes immediately or crashes. I’ve deleted and redownloaded several times on my IPad and nothing seems to work.
Keeps crashing
by HiAsfukc on 2020/10/19 19:36
I love this app however it hasn’t been working well the past couple days. I don’t know what’s going on but it’s so annoying. I can’t do anything on the app without it freezing, then crashing completely.
Super slow
by Anne_2020 on 2020/10/19 19:19
Didn’t save my designs after being hour working on them. Very disappointed.
Idk what’s wrong
by T.Rinnie on 2020/10/19 18:28
It simply freezes my iPad Pro screen the moment I open the app. I love Canva but the app is breaking my heart.
Terrible
by Deuce677 on 2020/10/19 18:00
This app used to be good but in the last month they have updated it and now I can’t get any work done but don’t worry, they are still charging me for their premium service. 2 updates and it still doesn’t work, don’t waste your money on a premium service that doesn’t deliver
Love itttt

Some of my own designs won’t load in the app. Makes it hard to get anything done in the app.
Amazing for on the go creation!
by JackieSlash on 2020/10/19 15:47
I use this application for my personal business, social media needs for my career job and networking groups that I manage for. It keeps improving with each update and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have Adobe Suite as well and much prefer this for my quick graphics!

I’ve been using Canva for a couple years and now after the update on my iPad Pro, it just opens and freezes. Every single time and I’ve had to search for other apps to use since I use this one for work which when it’s working, I love it. PLEASE FIX IT!!!
Freezes all the time

This app is so bad I tried to sing up 5 different ways each time being told “something unfortunate happened and we can not sign up” in which I then now can not get into the app due to the app not letting me sign up. Wish I could give zero stars for the app being defective! Fix this ASAP!!!!
Good for a free app
by Cleverwithwords! on 2020/10/18 03:33
It’s fun to use and the templates are diverse and well designed. For a free app, it does the job. However, the mobile app (iPad) lacks features that the browser version has on my laptop. I give it three stars because it can be time consuming to do simple things. The app crashes or freezes sometimes, and I am unable to do things I need like download my designs in a high def form or alter the dimensions of my design. These things require a subscription. 🤷🏻‍♀️
irritating app, has potential to be amazing
by anoncutie on 2020/10/18 01:54
My number one complaint is that, for some reason, when i upload my good quality photos, the app makes them lighter and a little faded and grainy. It makes the photo really ugly. And then theres also the resizing. The app makes it very difficult to resize and move things, like the text boxes and such on the templates. Its just overall a very annoying app to use. But all the options/designs available are very nice. They have a nice selection and amount. I mainly use the app for youtube thumbnails, which is why the color and quality change is so irritating to me. It makes it look like my entire video will be that quality. Don’t think I will continue using the app because of this, unfortunately.
Pricy but worthwhile
by giovaromero on 2020/10/17 22:06

Ya no sé si seguir pagando
by No es regalo ? on 2020/10/17 18:43
Desde que renovaron esta aplicación me animé a pagar por ella. La utilizo todos los días para mi negocio, pero no me está sirviendo como antes. Los videos no me descargan completo. Pagaré este último mes y cancelo mi suscripción.
Needs to be fixed

iPad Pro Freezing Issues
by TelleBear2 on 2020/10/17 14:28
It’s been freezing upon opening on my 2020 IPad Pro, works fine on my iPhone. It’s a great app despite the freezing issues which at times makes it useless when I’m working on a project, but I can’t discount that when it’s working it’s flawless.

Disappointing
by Jon007#lovegame on 2020/10/17 12:14
I put hours into designing a brochure before going to a new business start up. I saved my brochure and began the print process at home, and it just froze saying preparing your design. I waited 20 minutes and it still said preparing your design, so I exited out of the app and went back in to try to refresh and my whole design was gone like I had never done anything! It never saved it and it refused to print it.
Not Working still after I updated again! 😡
by 🔥👎🏾 on 2020/10/17 03:31
Use to be Mobil friendly and now I can’t even save the design ...;( and takes much longer to create any design with this new updates... Please make it again like it use to be years! And it’s very hard to find on Mobil my own pictures to upload... it use to be so easy until this year was updated. Time is money and with this new update I can’t work super slow because of this MOBIL UNFRIENDLY updates ... I use to love love this App😢
Horrible!
by Young Weediez Cfo on 2020/10/17 03:30
I have been trying to cancel this for months! I cancelled the subscription & deactivated my account. But I noticed today that I have still been getting charged for 5 months now!! So I tried to find someone to talk to about it.. To no avail.. I also tried resetting the password & it says that you can not reset the password to a deactivated account!!! Ahhhh!!! Help!

by Loveheartlov on 2020/10/16 17:19
I genuinely use this app almost everyday to create so many things. However, there are still a lot of flaws with the app. It doesn’t run well on your Phone or IPad... it actually doesn’t run at all on my IPad. Which is really weird because it’s the newest model. It glitches out every time I attempt to use it. So I am left to use just my phone. Which that sometimes glitches out too.
Issue Loading Page

LOGOS REMOVED NOW!?
by MoldyBackyard on 2020/10/16 07:45
Where did logos go!? Canva said “Switch back” at anytime but how, update has removed Logos (not that they saved anymore anyway) why remove this feature!? I don’t get it
Please Fix ASAP
by Me Mateo aka: Matghetto10 on 2020/10/16 07:08
I know it’s not y’all’s fault it’s more on apple than anyone. But this app does not load, and only freezes when it does load on my iPad Pro. Again like I said it’s more on Apple because of it stupid update but something needs to get figured out on both sides of this because us the consumer is struggling. I do all my graphic work within this app and now I’m graphic design less.

stopped working completely on iPad Pro
by corb70 on 2020/10/16 01:30
I’ve been using Canva on my iPad Pro for a while now to create social media graphics for my business pages. I’ve come to rely on it quite heavily, to be honest. All of a sudden it has just stopped working completely. When I pull up the app it appears frozen and if I try to click on anything it closes itself out. This is SUPREMELY frustrating! I’ve updated the app and my iPad to no avail! This needs to be fixed ASAP or your small business owner clients will be running far away to more reliable graphics apps! Good thing I hadn’t gotten around to signing up for a premium account!

by Amy_075 on 2020/10/15 22:44
Thank you! I downloaded this app after updating my iPhone to the new 14 version after seeing how we can personalize our phones with your app. My daughter actually used the app to make her bridal shower invitations, purchased directly from you. Super fast shipping and production time and they are so beautiful! I was skeptical doing this from an app I wasn’t very familiar with but I am amazed. Anyone who is second guessing them, from my experience, it is wonderful and legit! And beyond easy!! Also the packaging is adorable! Including the thank you note!!! This app is a keeper for sure and we will continue to use them!
Couldn’t use it.
by Agent S1973 on 2020/10/15 21:41
Didn’t get past the “choose a password” part to access this ap. Every password I used, that I would be able to remember was rejected as being too easy to guess, like someone is going to take the time to hack my poster making ap.
Long time user now very unhappy
by Fluteladyknits on 2020/10/15 20:28
I have deleted and re-downloaded the app and it is still frozen on iPad Pro 12. I use this app for my Youtube channel. I have used it for years. But recently it has gone down the tubes. I can’t even open the app because every time I get to the main page it freezes up. I close it down and reopen over and over and over. And nothing. It just locks up. I used to love this app. There are less choices now because for some reason you have taken more of the templates away. And the ones remaining won’t load onto YouTube half the time because it won’t recognize it as a photo. Very strange. And now the whole app freezes up and is rendered useless. I can’t even get to the templates I have made. Come )n people it is freezing up again and I can’t make my thumbnail!
Canva is a Lifesaver

I use it
App is not working
by Carebear10029 on 2020/10/15 17:44
I love this app when I can use it. Lately every time I try to log in there is an error. I can’t log in to my previous account or make a new one. We tried to get in on our work IPads too and it says the same thing! App is updated and everything. Please fix this bug.
Ordering from Canva!
by west.18 on 2020/10/15 17:30
This Fall-oween I had took professional photos of my son and this app made it so easy to put together a collage! I fell in love of what i put together and decided to make card invitations! Canva’s packaging was so cute! they gave me exactly what i ordered & they put extra envelopes in my purchase! I would highly recommend ordering from Canva for any type of invitations!

I enjoy Canva, it is user friendly and provides various format settings for your creation.

I want to like it. But, I can’t.
by notdeseray on 2020/10/15 04:38
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.
Really great but
by DeadDivergent#1 on 2020/10/15 00:31
I have albums in my camera roll but, unlike other editing apps I use, this app doesn’t allow me to go through albums to choose images. Please add this feature!!
Great and awesome

Super easy great apps
Sry dissatisfied
by Hluc5219 on 2020/10/14 18:14
I decided to give the trial a go, and decided that for the price it was worth it to me. While it does make editing photos fun and easy.. I just won’t use it enough for the cost to be worth it. When trying to manage my subscription, EVERY TIME I try, it freezes on the loading screen. I reached out asking for help but it’s been days and no one has helped me. I do not want to be charged for a service that I don’t have use for.
So Simple
by Ricci Bryan on 2018/11/03 03:37
This app is so simple to use. There are a few quirky things. #1 Once I load a photo into the app from my album, you can’t remove it. #2 You can’t add multiple photos in a design or I haven’t figured it out. It’s a one photo per design app. I do love that they’ve now added the ability to add two different fonts in a design. #3 Doesn’t allow you to name designs. #4 it doesn’t allow me to save the different variations of my work. For example one of my insta posts was done with 3 different color backgrounds, B&W, and a faded effect. Each time I modify it, the work I wanted to keep is overwritten instead of it creating addt’l files with all variations. I now export before I make changes. It can challenging when you have 30+ social media accts for six companies. #5 I have to modify a design in order for it to save to ‘my designs’ as opposed to just selecting it and others to determine what I want to use. Overall, the app works great, it has so many options to make it happen. I use this app in addition to a few others in combination since you can’t photoshop in this app. I love anything that makes my life easy and Canva does that!!
Canva... the app we all want to love
by blogbarger on 2018/12/21 06:00
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.
WAS LOVING THE APP UNTIL...
by hmmmm01 on 2020/07/11 01:28
I paid for $12 or $13 monthly Pro Canva almost a month ago...didn’t really start using it until a week and a half ago...I noticed that everything I click on tells me that I need to upgrade to Pro to have that particular feature...mind you I’ve had pro for almost one month now, but just to see what happens, I click to do the upgrade, and low and behold it tells me that I’m already a pro member...duhhhh!!!! I wrote Canva for assistance a week ago through the help section via the app and got back the usual auto generated email stating we will get back with you. Twice I’ve written, how long does it take to get someone to email me back? I’m paying for a service that I dont have and cant use. So far your app surpasses the other graphic design apps for logo and branding, but if I cant use it then...? Can some please fix my account so that I can get what I’m paying for, currently I can’t remove any watermarks or get photos...etc. ANDDDDD I’ve paid $2 for something that I really needed because my pro access is not working. I’d like to get refunded that $2 since its supposed to be a feature that I’m already paying for....I see other folks writing bad reviews and Canva seems to jump right on it...so maybe I can get a response this way??? Let’s see what happens Ps if you need to know what platform I’m using..IPad Pro. Thanks #disappointed
Still some oddities in the system
by A.C. Groffman on 2019/04/22 01:21
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.
HATE the Updated iPad App
by LennyPam on 2018/11/11 03:48
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!
Leaked my password to darkweb
by Kayla0725 on 2019/08/23 19:20
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.
The update ruined everything
by Steph Pen on 2019/04/20 18:24
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.
Great App with a Few Bugs
by Lexi_Brunner on 2020/04/05 20:03
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!
by Laura Mellark on 2019/02/13 07:52
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!
New Version is not worth it
by LTWOODRING on 2019/11/07 14:28
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
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
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.
I can’t believe that y’all have done this
by cf322223555 on 2020/05/26 20:01
This app is not easy to use. There is so much MESS going on it blows my everlasting mind. Why does the app close out of your project BY ITSELF? Why can’t I EVER move anything around within the given prompts? I know that it would probably be more efficient on the computer but that’s none of my business. I also pay for this app, so i’m trying to figure out why I can’t get anything done right? WHEN I PAY!!! I’m so annoyed. Y’all need to get it together because this is straight up sloppy, and it’s embarrassing on this companies behalf. Y’all should be humiliated. I get that y’all got your little money or whatever, but that does not mean the whole app needs to go to trash because y’all want to slack OFF! This app needs improvement and i know y’all know it. Every time I use this app, which is almost every day, some type of error occurs. I literally made a memo, and the ENTIRE MEMO MESSED UP FOR NO REASON! I wrote “ And some of the requirements are” and when I saved it , it said “ YYYYZZYYYZYYYyy” LIKE??! Explain to me why that happened. I am so displeased but I have to keep rocking with y’all because I pay, but let me tell y’all something, y’all are going to lose if you don’t fix this app. It’s embarrassing! Get it together, thank you.
Good App
by loriiann hayes on 2020/01/19 07:47
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!
Best design app for us novice/intermediate folks!
by piperlou on 2019/01/05 06:52
This is a great design app! Especially for those of us that love to design but don’t have all our skills honed in on Adobe ID or photoshop. Great tool and love using it for work and my side hustle! 2 suggestions one: wish you could put “your designs” in folders so I could keep my work and side projects separately. Two: when you find a graphic you like I wish it would give you the key words associated with the graphics (like tags)so you could search for more like it or just keep track of designs. A itty bitty complaint but no deal breaker—- I like the 2.0 version but it is a little irritating that I can start a design on my laptop and finish on my iPad because I used a different version. Not that big of a deal I just have to remember to start the project on 1.0. So many options and so user friendly! I have told many of my friends about this great app. I see it only getting better! 🤗
New updates make app useless
by Crazykellsbells on 2018/11/23 22:20
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!
Not iPhone/finger swipe friendly
by MatthewC21 on 2020/05/01 12:05
The idea & layouts of the app are fantastic, it offers tons of ideas & inspiration for many different types of projects. However the templates they offer are incredibly frustrating to use on my phone with my finger. When I try to edit one of the templates I find it’s too difficult to properly choose certain elements with a finger tap. When trying to change the pre-written text its next to impossible to get the curser in front of the text box’s because the program thinks I’m trying to change the background image rather than the font. When trying to resize a graphic manually it almost always shrinks the image to an microscopic size that is then impossible to enlarge again. It gets so frustrating that I end up closing the app & using something else all together. I’m sure if you’re using an iPad with a pen it works beautifully. I’ve had some luck using the blank templates to create my own ad’s but one of the biggest draws to the app are all the fantastic pre made templates available. If it were easier to use on my phone I’d pay for the premium version.
I love it but it's frustrating
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/10/17 04:39
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!
PHENOMENAL OKAY!!
by prettyloaf on 2019/07/26 02:50
This app is amazing. I started a new job , while the owner of the company was in the middle of getting things organized and up and running completely. So she asked me to make her some name tags, why in heavens did she pick me I have no idea, I didn’t even know where to start... well I just so happened to type in “make your own name tag” on google and “Canva” was an option under apps. Well I downloaded it and it was completely easy .. the name tags I made game out AMAZING. I could make the font , the size I mean whatever I dreamed of was right there for me to edit. I edited my name tags made them completely to my liking of vision , emailed them and then had them printed off and eliminated at a near by fed ex kinkos. MY BOSS WAS IN LOVE and they look completely professional! I now have a way to make future employees name tags and also received a pay raise !! I love the genius whose behind this app and THANK YOU CANVA!! You rock
Photo Folders
by HeatherLandry on 2019/05/20 13:51
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.
Too difficult to login from phone. No help from Canva
by Lorrenb1 on 2018/09/02 01:02
I find Canva okay. The app itself is great however, i’ve noticed that I can always login in on my computer but it gives me issues logging in from my phone. It won’t ever send me the reset password link if I do it from my phone. It’ll just tell me to make sure that I have the most updated version of the app and to try again even though I already do. Trying to find customer service contact info is nowhere near easy on the app and when I tried to use safari to access the website from my phone it ONLY redirected me to use the app which was already unsuccessful. As you can imagine this was a frustrating rabbit hole. I had to find an old email from Canva which has a customer service link. But when I sent a request in twice, they told me I would hear something back soon and I have heard nothing. That was last week. It should not be this difficult to get in contact with the company. Other than that, I love the app and all the options it offers once I’m able to use it. I just want to be able to use it with ease.
Same issues after one year of consistent use
by fellow business owner on 2020/05/05 16:15
I use the Canva app for iOS. It’s the only app of its kind, hence why I’m still using it. Easy to use, simple interface, and you can spend a good amount of time perfecting social media content. The problem is, is that half of the content I make within Canva does NOT save the way it appears in Canva. For example, when using a line graphic, it’s beautiful within the app and aesthetically pleasing. But the saved files shows a dashed line.. Or another issue is using multiple images in one post. When you go to save it, Canva will sometimes only register 1/4 of the images, or better yet, if they’re overlapping, the overlapped image suddenly doesn’t exist. If you’re new to digital design and learning by experience, like myself, this is your best bet unfortunately. If you’re a little more experienced, stick with Photoshop please or adobe or whatever else there is out there. For a creative, detail-orientated person like myself, the frustration with Canva saving your posts DIFFERENTLY than how it appears in the app is literally a big waste of time.
Utterly FABULOUS
by TotallyTurnedOff99 on 2020/08/14 03:37
Canva has been a true godsend. I work for a small nonprofit where I am essentially development director, social media manager, grant writer, volunteer coordinator, the marketing department, the web developer, and communications specialist rolled into one. While I am many things, I am not a graphic designer! Canva is AMAZING for us. I’m able to put together beautifully designed and aesthetically pleasing collateral materials, flyers, invitations, projects, reports...anything that could use a visual upgrade. Let’s face it, good design is ESSENTIAL to how we communicate not only the work we do as a nonprofit, but how we represent ourselves as an organization, so I am beyond grateful for Canva. Not only do they provide their pro version free to nonprofits, but the interface is so user friendly that my less confident colleagues have even ventured to use it. I have been raving about Canva to folks for a couple of years now, and every update is spectacular.
Very good app

They’re always trying to improve this app and they’re very much on top of things. I use this app nearly every day to make edits and designs and it has been extremely helpful for me. With every app, it takes some time to getting used to, but it’s a great app! 👍🏻 Ps, there has been an issue lately where the app closes an edit if you leave the app for even like 1 minute. It makes you re-open the edit over and over again. This is the only issue I have ever really had. Also when I saved my edits, the fonts would sometimes move around. You can get past this by simply screenshotting the pic, and then cropping it in your phone:) hope that helps someone out there! I have confidence that the Canva team will continue to make improvements and fix these minor issues.
Not worth subscribing for
by Treyvon03 on 2019/04/23 07:47
I’m not one to leave reviews because I genuinely find great apps to use and those that I don’t like I get rid of immediately. As for Canva, a service I’ve used for years(on desktop) I didn’t expect the app to work the way it did. Working on a basic level without any pro-level editing I tried to create a document, and the app wouldn’t do what I wanted. Fearing that it was just because I was using the free version I paid for the subscription, and that didn’t fix my issues. Frames wouldn’t line up, adding text was insanely difficult, and subscribing to any of there services is a complete waste of time and our money. In addition to those issue the app was filled with other frustrating things, it crashes, freezes, and restarting my phone won’t work for this app (I have a new phone). I’ve reached out to Apple and they weren’t able to help because this was completely on mine and Canvas behalf. DON’T GET TRICKED LIKE I DID, DON’T DEPEND ONTHE MOBILE VERSION, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DON’T BUY ANY SERVICES FROM CANVA. Hopefully, they fix there problems and QUIT SCAMMING it’s user because this truly had been a great service and now I’ve lost trust.
Good but glitches
by sirrahana on 2020/10/13 15:09
I have experienced time and time again where certain elements won't work, and some things even disappear while editing. Currently in the process of making a flyer and the picture just disappears into thin air. Nothing that I've done could've caused this as I've tried to fix the issue to no avail. There have been times that I tried to put my logo on an image, and on Canva it will show as transparent and look how it's supposed to, but then when you go to save it has a white background(??) and i'm not sure why when I know it uploaded as a PNG file. There have also been instances where something looks one way when I save it, but somehow goes wonky during the download process because it looks different once in the camera roll, and for this reason I sometimes have to screenshot the artwork just to save the integrity of it. I will continue to use but if there is any way to fix these glitches that would make my user experience much smoother.
Help
by VV1956 on 2018/12/28 02:52
I really really want to like this app and website. I recently downloaded to iPhone, iPad and website on Mac. There seems to be limited help and support for figuring out how to do things. The tutorials are extremely basic and I’m struggling with completing a few tasks. The potential is huge but the iPad app to so very basic you can’t do much. You cannot got to the web version in Safari because it forces you to use the iPad app instead. I’ve tried to email support for help but there is no support so I ended up finding a link stating something was broken. We’ll see if the developer answers. There needs to be a better system for figuring out to use this. I am trying to navigate within the website version on my Mac because that’s really where this shines however some of it doesn’t take any sense. For example, I created a logo but cant seem to use it anywhere or create other things I need like business cards, postcards, website banner etc. using that exact same logo. It should be easier. Help!
Great app that’s been ruined
by Cameron0208 on 2020/03/19 01:34
Canva used to be a great app. Keywords being ‘USED TO’. App is hot garbage now. Terrible controls that make editing nearly impossible - you are basically forced to rework your entire design any time you need to edit or move a single item because the selection control is abysmal. It actually takes LESS time to delete and start over than it does to select the item you want to edit, edit it, and continue. That’s RIDICULOUS! Almost every single review mentions the awful selection controls, yet all the Canva team does is say ‘Sorry’. No one wants or cares about an apology. How about you fix the issue?! App also has a ‘bug’ (probably intentional) where if you add an image with transparent background, the app adds a background automatically. Uhh. It’s transparent for a reason! The designs you save are NEVER the way they look in the app. Hey Canva, newsflash, you don’t get people to buy a pro subscription by making the free version a limited piece of garbage. You apparently need to learn that. Maybe you can learn that after you learn how to make a good app. Until then, app deleted.
Great for what it does but could be better
by Gabneg on 2019/03/12 21:04
I wish a few tweaks were made to make it more efficient. First, I wish I could filter through free images but it won’t let me. I get the pop up message telling me to upgrade. If it’s not available on the free version then don’t make it an option. It’s so time consuming scrolling through hundreds of images/graphics trying to find free ones but hey it’s the price I don’t pay 😊 I wish I was able to save different versions of my designs. Just because I change one aspect of it doesn’t mean I want the current version saved/overwritten. Now I have to make a copy make the changes there then save that copy as my other edited version which is a pain and can be easily fixed. I also wish there was an option that would allow me to write/draw On my designs. Overall, it’s great for what I need it to do but minor tweaks could make it that much more amazing.
Finally gave up on paid subscription
by midtnmomma on 2019/09/22 13:18
I’ve been using Canva for over two years, and had the paid subscription for the past year. I used the mobile version almost exclusively, and it had issues more often than it actually worked as expected. I wrote a review one time and attempted to get help only to be told “we can’t replicate the issue”, and coincidentally, there was an update after I submitted the issue that fixed the problem. It crashes, features don’t perform the way they should, most recently, it failed repeatedly to save a very simple graphic over multiple attempts in a 24 hour period. I’ve cancelled the subscription and will be using other apps that are more dependable. Not to mention it seems as though the “free” illustration options improved under the paid service-items I don’t recall being able to use when I wasn’t paying were now showing as though they were available for free...confusing, and such a disappointment because I do like the simplicity of the app.
i want to love it...
by yay! 🤗 on 2020/10/11 05:11
let’s start with the good. i love the variety of fonts, and how you can make videos easily with it. i use canva very often for making my Pinterest board covers or wallpapers. however... there’s many things that i hate about this app. for one, half the time i press the download button it doesn’t actually download, which is extremely annoying. also: the amount of features that pro members get is overwhelming. as a 12-year-old who has no money, i can’t exactly buy the pro version, but i can’t do much with the free version either. adding a few more free features would be nice. it would also be cool if you could download your own fonts without having to upgrade to pro... and also more editing tools like being able to curve text and stuff like that. overall, canva is a great app. i’d just really appreciate it if you could make these changes. thank you.
Great app but PLUS is extremely expensive
by Hotdogracecarlover on 2020/02/24 05:23
Canva is excellent. I’ve been using it for years and I am always satisfied. There are some minor annoyances but it’s good for the most part. I have had a lot of issues with Canva not saving my login accounts and as a result I’ve lost 3 accounts and around 200 designs, no matter what I do and who I contact, I cannot get into those accounts. It’s extremely annoying and needs to be fixed immediately. The mobile app also needs some UI work. I am switching to other cheaper apps because I wanted to get Canva Plus but it’s ridiculously expensive for a few simple features that I can circumvent easily. Why would I pay for a something when I can just go around it instead?! I highly recommend that Canva offer different levels of PLUS membership, offering more features as the monthly rate increases of course. I think at least 3 different programmes that allow people to only pay for what they need.
Not Good With Text
by aratuk on 2020/02/20 05:52
My rating is for this app, not the Canva service. The Canva service and templates are great, but in this app it’s frustratingly difficult to move the cursor around to edit text. This is partly due to the limitations of touchscreen input not being able to recognize user intent, but the app should, for instance, assume that you intend to simply move the cursor within the text field you are already editing before it determines you want to resize a large solid background element behind it, and zooms out to accommodate, making it difficult to get back to where you were. It is also harder than it should be to zoom in because the same gesture is used to resize objects, and there are usually objects all over a graphically-intensive document. Something like this happens a dozen times in a row, and then you quit the app to go write a bad review 😕 This app is okay for a quick project with a limited number of graphical objects and not much text, but it needs to be a lot more precise to take full advantage of the Canva service.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
Little Design Issues
by tayhow14 on 2020/07/16 16:16
I really like Canva. I love how there are a lot of free options and you can uploaded pictures easily and it’s very interactive. All of the templates are very useful and there are so many design options to choose from! The only things I have had a problem with is that it’s not real time collaborative. It’s frustrating when you have a few people working on something but you can’t work on it all at the same time. Another issue I have encountered is that you can’t save something as a PDF on your phone you have to log into a computer to do that which is personally very inconvenient to me. Those are the only things I see could be fixed and other than that this app is amazing and I definitely recommend. It’s very clean and user friendly and I always tell people to use this for their design needs. Thank you for the great work Canva!
Was ok, but now you have to pay...
by MaloryB on 2019/04/19 16:11
From recommendations from others, I started using this app and absolutely loved it...even though some of the pics weren’t great quality at times, when downloading pdf versions my items were missing or in different places all over my projects (I still managed to make it work out ok in other ways), and trying to save or edit my projects at times took too long. Because others loved this so much and even used it for their projects (and because I didn’t know of any other apps to use because this was so easy to use when I first started), I have kept this app. Now, to use some of the features I frequently used, I have to pay. I’m sorry to sound negative, but at first...this was such an awesome app. And ever since I first started using it last year, every update that’s happened, this app has started become one I don’t go to as much as I did at the beginning. I don’t mind a onetime fee if it’s #1...affordable...and #2...worth the cost. Sorry.
The App version of Canva has become awful
by Devonne123 on 2020/06/01 19:02
I’ve used Canva over the last few years for my resumes and some collages and never had a problem. I would mostly use it on my phone because of the convenience and have had issues with my laptop keyboard so I didn’t use the desktop version much. Sometime in the last months, they may have updated the app version or changed something in their system that makes the app so buggy to use. Nothing moves to where you want it, things will move even if you don’t want it to, you can’t grab the text u want because it’ll grab literally everything else around it, changing sizes of text and images is an 5 min ordeal. I’ve tried using the app on my iPhone and iPad and it so difficult to change anything you want on an document anymore. Honestly the desktop version I don’t have an issue with and have been stuck with using. Don’t even bother with the app, just use the desktop version if you have the option.
The iPad/iPhone app needs work
by Shirpaderpa on 2020/07/12 18:04
Canva can turn anyone into artists, designers, and content creators. It is incredibly easy to use and offers beautiful templates, graphics, stock photos and more. I’ve been using it for a couple of years now to create social media content and promotional/educational flyers. However, I have one BIG complaint... working on a design across multiple devices (desktop/laptop to iPhone to iPad) is SO challenging and extremely glitchy. For example, I created a flyer in Canva on my laptop. When I open it in my iPad, the spacing between objects and text is messed up and random bullet points have been added to my lists. It’s hard to navigate, move graphics, and edit anything on the iPad (and iPhone). Please at least create an tablet/iPad-friendly version of Canva that has a similar interface as the computer application. The iPad Pro is the most popular tablet for designers and content creators.
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2020/04/11 09:49
Absolutely love this app but very frustrated with a few glitches, as I use this proffesionally and keep running into the same issues. Issues are as follows: when making a design and everything is aligned perfect and ready to save, after saving the graphic is saved differently than the graphic that was finalized. Text moves, words overlap, animations move locations, or alignment changes. In addition, when using the video feature, the logo is no longer transparent. I pay for the premium version and unfortunately a few times realized the changes after already sharing the graphic to social accounts. Sometimes ill fix and change multiple times only for it to happen again and again. It seems I am saving 10 different versions of each graphic before getting the one I finalized and sometimes have to start over from scratch.
Too many glitches
by SadeTC on 2019/03/21 15:08
After i decided to pay for the subscription, the app seemed to get glitchy. Once I’m done with a project and I exit that project and go back into it, my last changes are not saved. I still don’t like that I can’t download a project without the background via my mobile phone. I have to save it and access it from my laptop and that’s a huge inconvenience because I mostly work on the go. Majority of the time, I have to save my work for later, until I get home and this slows my business down. Or I have to take my laptop with me today everywhere I go. I don’t like that once I choose colors for a logo, the most recent colors I’ve chosen aren’t there anymore. That feature somehow vanished. Please makes this better. I really like this app but it’s frustrating when I use it.
Best Website/Application I Have Ever Downloaded!
by Krish.v123 on 2020/01/10 20:17
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST APPLICATIONS I HAVE EVER OWNED. I wish I could give it more than those 5 stars! Obviously started out with the website but once I saw the app, I was jumping up and down with excitement. Canva has truly been a life savor for all my creative endeavors. I use it for meeting materials, personal content creation, presentations, and possibly anything I could think of! I literally never write reviews but as I was working on my presentation materials on canva, I was just thinking, wow, I really hope canva is here to stay forever and I wanted to share my positive feedback for the features, usability and just everything that this website has done for me. I really hope I can continue to use the basic version for free because I don’t think I could live without canva haha.
Takes forever to design
by Bdbfndndnsj on 2020/06/18 13:59
I like the apps variety and aestethic but I cannot stress how long it takes to make a flyer or a post. If I want to edit a text it just zooms in on the post or flyer, on the wrong piece of text and then zooms out and I can keep going like that for 10-15 minutes until I can finally click on the text I have to edit. And thats not including all the other texts or details on the post or flyer that I am trying to customize. When I delete a text too this ‘shadow’ of the deleted text is left behind on the post/flyer and its just very frustrating considering its been over 2 hours and I still cant finish because I cannot edit texts or details because the app just wont select what I am clicking on. Saving designs too come with defects and this isn't the first review that talks about it. It really is time you guys invest in people that can ACTUALLY effectively fix these many many bugs. Because there is more but I will leave it here.
0/5
by Johnnykush87 on 2019/10/06 21:18
I used this program for a while and thought it was great at first. The templates are straightforward and plentiful. Then I realized just how unstable it is. Not only does it crash all the time and delete progress but it also rearranges everything you put down in the slightest way so as to goof up everything. Then I got an email from my internet protection service alerting me that can a had gotten hacked and that they my personal information. Ever since then I’ve been dealing with hackers trying to get into all of my accounts. Just yesterday I had to cancel my debit card because some people who lifted my login and personal info from Canva started spending my money. I’d rate this app as 0/10 if I could because it’s been nothing but a headache from the start. I just wish I could go back in time and never make an account in the first place.
I keep getting logged out
by predictivetextwrotethis on 2019/04/15 15:24
This app would get a 5 star rating if it didn’t boot me out every few days. When I try to sign back in with Facebook, it loads Facebook, I hit continue, the “sign in” button turns gray with a loading graphic, then it just turns green and says “sign in” again... back to square one. I have to close the app out and try it several times over before I can get back in. Also a little annoying that I can’t work on ANYTHING in the app without internet. If I lose signal for a minute, in the middle of working on something displays up a pop up notification that I’m not online and then closes out my work with no progress saved. If it had done nothing and let me keep doing what i was doing until the signal came back it would have been fine. 🤦🏼‍♀️ so, a few bugs, but the app overall is a good one.
Update rendered Canva unusable on iPad Pro
by Gx Cori on 2018/11/25 08:26
My camera roll does not show in this new Canva and frankly I hate that I no longer can work on Canva in Landscape mode on iPad Pro. Was my main reason for using Canva above others. Horrible update. I will be finding something else to use. I wanted to add I don’t like the desktop version updates either. I had forever been trying to test out the video option and couldn’t find it. This totally set back our Black Friday prep, I was literally about to pay for a subscription when I started seeing all the updates. I use Promo-Republic to post to social media, because of the metrics, but their editor is horrible, so I would make Canva graphics to import and use instead. Their editor is now better than Canva, but that’s not saying much. They have no iPad app. But at least I can use it web based in portrait mode on my iPad. Right before holidays is a terrible time to update especially when so many small businesses depend on Canva. I had to go to Adobe Spark...poor substitute, ugh. Canva fix all of it!
Great... but some small annoyances
by Coaster Enthused on 2020/04/05 07:41
I love all things design. This app has an easy to navigate interface with user friendly controls. What doesn’t give it the 5 stars for me are all minor things. I have a lot of major battery drainage while using it it when keeping the app open. I will note that the device I’m using is an iPhone 7 Plus so it’s a little old. It’s a little slow to load but not massively. The more annoying thing to me is the item boxes. I have a lot of text in my current project, and I’m using lines to seperate some of it. The box for the lines go over my text so that I can’t edit or move it without moving the line first. It’s really frustrating when working with this a lot. Overall I’d recommend it, but watch out for items that you need a pro subscription to use or need to pay a separate fee for.
I want to use images but I can’t use them
by Elsa Hammons on 2020/07/09 18:31
There are some images that I would LOVE to use, but I don’t have Canva Plus, therefore I cannot use them. This annoys me because the image I found is perfect for what I want to use it for, but I can’t even use it so then my designs are a lot worse. If one was able to watch an ad to use one image once (if they wanted to use it again in the same design, watch another ad. Or if they want to use it in another design, watch another ad) that would be AMAZING!!! It might get repetitive and cheese us off, but we can at least use all of the images, of course by watching an ad. (Also, if we could watch an ad to download a logo with a transparent background, that’d be very cool beans!!!) However, with Canva Plus, you would not have to watch ads, and you would still get Magic Resize and all of the other fun snazzy stuff as well. This works well for all; the developers still get paid for their work, and the users get to use all of the images. This even helps developers of other apps, since the ads are for their apps (and we users might be convinced to download them). Please at least consider this, but I hope that you developers find this idea to be useful, and integrate it into your app. Thank you, have a good day!!!
SO frustrating
by AshlanMarie on 2018/10/25 20:18
I loved this app for about a month while using it to create instagram posts and blog graphics from my phone. Everything was great...until out of nowhere the app stopped working. Even after redownloading the app, restarting my phone and even going so far as to contact “customer service” (who, by the way, never contacted me back) I have been having issues where when I go to create or edit a template my designs will not be saved or as I’m attempting to save the image graphics, text and whatnot get moved/displaced. The only way I can get around it sometimes is by having to screenshot my finished work then going into my photos and cropping everything else out which leads to poor resolution. That worked for maybe a week before I experienced another issue where when I go to move graphics or text it gets completely sent off the screen/resized and I’m unable to put it back to the sizing I need. Even after using the “undo” arrow when I attempt to move my work around AGAIN it does the SAME THING before the app just crashes and kicks me out. It now takes me over 2 hours to complete something that would only take me MAYBE 20 minutes before. I’m so frustrated with this app and so disappointed after receiving such great service the first month of use. My phone and the app are both up to date with no technical issues. I have yet to try this on my iPad out of fear I’ll just grow more frustrated.

Love this app!
by Jay Mc cleavlen on 2020/10/23 01:15
I use this for everything! I love how easy it is to use, and all the elements to the app and website! I recommend using the website, you can do more than on the app. The only thing (which is the same for many apps and websites) is that your design won't save if you have the app or website open on multiple devices.
Super

by partywithTammyGreene on 2020/10/22 13:28
Love love love Canva but lately it is not accessible from my iPad where I work most!! Click on a format and it does nothing. So frustrating. PLEASE fix this for mobile users. I feel more people work on a phone or tablet now and it’s mind blowing its not functioning. I need this app to work please!! Will probably become a pro member but NOT if I cant get it to work properly. Thanks!!

i was looking through all of the pictures, and most of the people/models in pictures were caucasian or white. can we get a more diverse selection of pictures for poc? edit: it turns out that it was only for certain topics, like when i searched up education or education for girls, sorry!
GLITCHY ON IPAD

what happened?!?
by Photo1257 on 2020/10/22 02:31
On the rare occasion I can get the app to load, it crashes within minutes. I have tried to use the app many times over the last 10 days to two weeks. It is completely useless!
Why

Why do I pay monthly for an app that won’t load on my brand new iPad Pro

This app is very easy to use. It is simply wonderful.
Business Cards
by Sydberry on 2020/10/21 21:23
I love this app. Only thing I didn’t love is how my business cards were printed. On the app everything was centered correctly but on the business cards some words are not centered correctly. It makes my business cards look unprofessional. I probably won’t order business cards more from them anymore.

I’ve had this app since Jan 21,2020 Canva Pro Monthly. I’ve never received access to the PRO version. I’ve reached out several time via email. Nothing.. I didn’t want to leave a bad review the company forced me by not offering a proper solution or response via email. I have a business, and I don’t have money to giveaway. I don’t care if it’s $12, $1000, or 50 cents. The app has potential, but if I can’t use what I’m paying for what’s the point? Glad I’m a graphic designer. That’s what I get for looking for a cheap way out. You think I want to be on the phone waiting all day to talk to Apple about a refund. No.I.Do.Not... especially since I work for them. I’ve completed all the troubleshooting prior to reaching out to Canva earlier this year... Still nothing. Just offer me a job Managing the customer’s experience or IT. This would never happen to someone else.

Used to love Canva
by StephanieRaymos on 2020/10/21 17:06
I loved Canva so much with android. But on the iOS app there’s no way to change the colors of an element like I used to. The colors are the MOST important part for my branding images. I don’t have an android anymore so this is a major deal breaker for Canva pro. Will be looking for other options.

No response to reported issues
by thereuhaveit on 2020/10/21 15:43
I pay for a pro subscription & it doesn’t sync with the online log in. It’s tedious and time consuming to try to use only the app, then forward it to my email, download to my computer and if I need to make a small change to the design, I have to do it all over again. I’ve contacted them twice and received no reply. I got an email saying they were closing my issue and marking it resolved since so much time had passed. So frustrated!
Becoming Unsatisfied
by AlwaysQueenin on 2020/10/21 14:08
I have been using Canva for my business for a little over a year and I’ve really enjoyed it up until recently. The transparent logo I created on the app is no longer transparent. I am having to create a transparent logo on a different app, which doesn’t make sense being that i should be able to do it on Canva like I’ve done in the past. Also, I am currently trying to create a promo video and each time I try to add the video, Canva blanks it out and the app closes. At this point, using this app is useless and I’m now in search for a better one.
Waste of Time
by imLaurenAc on 2020/10/21 13:16
It never works. The app constantly hangs, can’t save work, won’t download. It’s completely pointless.
All it does is freeze up
by Brandyr10 on 2020/10/21 13:08
It did work fine on my iPad and now it will not do anything. I open the app and it just freezes. You can’t do anything I end up closing it and going to another app. It works fine on my iPhone but not my iPad where I do most of my work. I would never pay a cent for this app, Garbage!
Cant work without it👍🏽

STOP 🛑 ✋🏻 🛑 THINK BEFORE DOWNLOAD!!!
by CorGonzo on 2020/10/21 03:04
Look this app takes A LOT of patience to use : I don’t have patience. I first downloaded this app for a school assignment and it worked fine the first time. If you’re like me and don’t want to waste time - don’t download this. Yes this app is OK but it’s too glitchy. It always glitches when I try to edit something and it refreshes the page so that I can’t edit anything , also you have to pay for most of the features. If you don’t want to pay for anything don’t get this app. The only “good” thing about it is that it has cute stickers and backgrounds.... that’s about it. Download some other app! This one wastes my time!
NEEDS AN UPDATE FOR IPAD OS
by The smartest person ever on 2020/10/21 00:20

Colors Changing
by Birthnomics on 2020/10/20 19:35
The app has changed the colors of my designs. As soon as I try to edit a project, all the colors change. Even if I save the original design without any edits, the file saved alters all of the colors. This has been happening for weeks and it’s happening on both of my iPhone devices. I can’t be the only on experiencing this issue. I haven’t been able to use the mobile app for this reason because none of my designs have my company colors anymore.
App hasn’t worked in weeks
by kellilayne on 2020/10/20 15:26
I absolutely love Canva but for some reason my app on my iPad hasn’t worked in weeks. Pretty annoying especially since I pay monthly.
Mostly free and convenient
by fikergd on 2020/10/20 15:18
I am personally obsessed with Canva and the many templates and creative tools for everyone... it’s the perfect for short video projects, posts done in such a short amount of time. Have fun with it!
Love this app
by Kodylove on 2020/10/20 14:10
This app is so amazing to use. The interface is pretty awesome to be honest; I’ve learnt so much about graphic designing by using this app. However, one thing I miss since the update was the vibration and aligning assistant in the app. Usually when I’d rotate something it would automatically just start to vibrate or show the alignment markers so I’d know it’s in line with other text or it’s centered, it doesn’t do that anymore and for me that’s frustrating. All in all it’s a great about for creators across the board and that new update with the videos and music and the new lil tweaks and elements are great buuuttt bring back those alignment lines and vibration.
So frozen I can’t click a single thing
by nonbeanary on 2020/10/20 08:18
I just downloaded the iPadOS version of Canva’s app and what an enormous disappointment. It was working fairly well (4/5 stars) on my iPad in Chrome. I figured the app would be better, but it is unusable. I was able to log in, but then it completely freezes on the home screen and I restarted it about 5 times. Oh well back to the web browser version, I guess?

Terrible

This app used to be good but in the last month they have updated it and now I can’t get any work done but don’t worry, they are still charging me for their premium service. 2 updates and it still doesn’t work, don’t waste your money on a premium service that doesn’t deliver

This app is so bad I tried to sing up 5 different ways each time being told “something unfortunate happened and we can not sign up” in which I then now can not get into the app due to the app not letting me sign up. Wish I could give zero stars for the app being defective! Fix this ASAP!!!!
Good for a free app
by Cleverwithwords! on 2020/10/18 03:33
It’s fun to use and the templates are diverse and well designed. For a free app, it does the job. However, the mobile app (iPad) lacks features that the browser version has on my laptop. I give it three stars because it can be time consuming to do simple things. The app crashes or freezes sometimes, and I am unable to do things I need like download my designs in a high def form or alter the dimensions of my design. These things require a subscription. 🤷🏻‍♀️
irritating app, has potential to be amazing
by anoncutie on 2020/10/18 01:54
My number one complaint is that, for some reason, when i upload my good quality photos, the app makes them lighter and a little faded and grainy. It makes the photo really ugly. And then theres also the resizing. The app makes it very difficult to resize and move things, like the text boxes and such on the templates. Its just overall a very annoying app to use. But all the options/designs available are very nice. They have a nice selection and amount. I mainly use the app for youtube thumbnails, which is why the color and quality change is so irritating to me. It makes it look like my entire video will be that quality. Don’t think I will continue using the app because of this, unfortunately.
Pricy but worthwhile

iPad Pro Freezing Issues
by TelleBear2 on 2020/10/17 14:28
It’s been freezing upon opening on my 2020 IPad Pro, works fine on my iPhone. It’s a great app despite the freezing issues which at times makes it useless when I’m working on a project, but I can’t discount that when it’s working it’s flawless.

by Jon007#lovegame on 2020/10/17 12:14
I put hours into designing a brochure before going to a new business start up. I saved my brochure and began the print process at home, and it just froze saying preparing your design. I waited 20 minutes and it still said preparing your design, so I exited out of the app and went back in to try to refresh and my whole design was gone like I had never done anything! It never saved it and it refused to print it.
Not Working still after I updated again! 😡
by 🔥👎🏾 on 2020/10/17 03:31
Use to be Mobil friendly and now I can’t even save the design ...;( and takes much longer to create any design with this new updates... Please make it again like it use to be years! And it’s very hard to find on Mobil my own pictures to upload... it use to be so easy until this year was updated. Time is money and with this new update I can’t work super slow because of this MOBIL UNFRIENDLY updates ... I use to love love this App😢
Horrible!
by Young Weediez Cfo on 2020/10/17 03:30
I have been trying to cancel this for months! I cancelled the subscription & deactivated my account. But I noticed today that I have still been getting charged for 5 months now!!

by Loveheartlov on 2020/10/16 17:19
I genuinely use this app almost everyday to create so many things. However, there are still a lot of flaws with the app. It doesn’t run well on your Phone or IPad... it actually doesn’t run at all on my IPad. Which is really weird because it’s the newest model. It glitches out every time I attempt to use it. So I am left to use just my phone. Which that sometimes glitches out too.
Issue Loading Page

Please Fix ASAP
by Me Mateo aka: Matghetto10 on 2020/10/16 07:08
I know it’s not y’all’s fault it’s more on apple than anyone. But this app does not load, and only freezes when it does load on my iPad Pro. Again like I said it’s more on Apple because of it stupid update but something needs to get figured out on both sides of this because us the consumer is struggling. I do all my graphic work within this app and now I’m graphic design less.

stopped working completely on iPad Pro
by corb70 on 2020/10/16 01:30
I’ve been using Canva on my iPad Pro for a while now to create social media graphics for my business pages. I’ve come to rely on it quite heavily, to be honest. All of a sudden it has just stopped working completely. When I pull up the app it appears frozen and if I try to click on anything it closes itself out. This is SUPREMELY frustrating! I’ve updated the app and my iPad to no avail! This needs to be fixed ASAP or your small business owner clients will be running far away to more reliable graphics apps! Good thing I hadn’t gotten around to signing up for a premium account!

Thank you! I downloaded this app after updating my iPhone to the new 14 version after seeing how we can personalize our phones with your app. My daughter actually used the app to make her bridal shower invitations, purchased directly from you. Super fast shipping and production time and they are so beautiful! I was skeptical doing this from an app I wasn’t very familiar with but I am amazed. Anyone who is second guessing them, from my experience, it is wonderful and legit! And beyond easy!! Also the packaging is adorable! Including the thank you note!!! This app is a keeper for sure and we will continue to use them!
Couldn’t use it.

Long time user now very unhappy
by Fluteladyknits on 2020/10/15 20:28
I have deleted and re-downloaded the app and it is still frozen on iPad Pro 12. I use this app for my Youtube channel. I have used it for years. But recently it has gone down the tubes. I can’t even open the app because every time I get to the main page it freezes up. I close it down and reopen over and over and over. And nothing. It just locks up. I used to love this app. There are less choices now because for some reason you have taken more of the templates away. And the ones remaining won’t load onto YouTube half the time because it won’t recognize it as a photo. Very strange. And now the whole app freezes up and is rendered useless. I can’t even get to the templates I have made. Come )n people it is freezing up again and I can’t make my thumbnail!

by notdeseray on 2020/10/15 04:38
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.
Really great but

I decided to give the trial a go, and decided that for the price it was worth it to me. While it does make editing photos fun and easy.. I just won’t use it enough for the cost to be worth it. When trying to manage my subscription, EVERY TIME I try, it freezes on the loading screen. I reached out asking for help but it’s been days and no one has helped me. I do not want to be charged for a service that I don’t have use for.
So Simple
by Ricci Bryan on 2018/11/03 03:37
This app is so simple to use. There are a few quirky things. #1 Once I load a photo into the app from my album, you can’t remove it. #2 You can’t add multiple photos in a design or I haven’t figured it out. It’s a one photo per design app. I do love that they’ve now added the ability to add two different fonts in a design. #3 Doesn’t allow you to name designs. #4 it doesn’t allow me to save the different variations of my work. For example one of my insta posts was done with 3 different color backgrounds, B&W, and a faded effect. Each time I modify it, the work I wanted to keep is overwritten instead of it creating addt’l files with all variations. I now export before I make changes. It can challenging when you have 30+ social media accts for six companies. #5 I have to modify a design in order for it to save to ‘my designs’ as opposed to just selecting it and others to determine what I want to use. Overall, the app works great, it has so many options to make it happen. I use this app in addition to a few others in combination since you can’t photoshop in this app. I love anything that makes my life easy and Canva does that!!
Canva... the app we all want to love
by blogbarger on 2018/12/21 06:00
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.
WAS LOVING THE APP UNTIL...
by hmmmm01 on 2020/07/11 01:28
I paid for $12 or $13 monthly Pro Canva almost a month ago...didn’t really start using it until a week and a half ago...I noticed that everything I click on tells me that I need to upgrade to Pro to have that particular feature...mind you I’ve had pro for almost one month now, but just to see what happens, I click to do the upgrade, and low and behold it tells me that I’m already a pro member...duhhhh!!!! I wrote Canva for assistance a week ago through the help section via the app and got back the usual auto generated email stating we will get back with you. Twice I’ve written, how long does it take to get someone to email me back? I’m paying for a service that I dont have and cant use. So far your app surpasses the other graphic design apps for logo and branding, but if I cant use it then...? Can some please fix my account so that I can get what I’m paying for, currently I can’t remove any watermarks or get photos...etc. ANDDDDD I’ve paid $2 for something that I really needed because my pro access is not working. I’d like to get refunded that $2 since its supposed to be a feature that I’m already paying for....I see other folks writing bad reviews and Canva seems to jump right on it...so maybe I can get a response this way??? Let’s see what happens Ps if you need to know what platform I’m using..IPad Pro. Thanks #disappointed
Still some oddities in the system
by A.C. Groffman on 2019/04/22 01:21
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.
HATE the Updated iPad App
by LennyPam on 2018/11/11 03:48
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!
Leaked my password to darkweb
by Kayla0725 on 2019/08/23 19:20
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.
The update ruined everything
by Steph Pen on 2019/04/20 18:24
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.
Great App with a Few Bugs
by Lexi_Brunner on 2020/04/05 20:03
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!
I want to like it. But, I can’t.
by notdeseray on 2020/10/15 04:38
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.
Canva is the best!
by Laura Mellark on 2019/02/13 07:52
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!
New Version is not worth it
by LTWOODRING on 2019/11/07 14:28
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
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
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.
I can’t believe that y’all have done this
by cf322223555 on 2020/05/26 20:01
This app is not easy to use. There is so much MESS going on it blows my everlasting mind. Why does the app close out of your project BY ITSELF? Why can’t I EVER move anything around within the given prompts? I know that it would probably be more efficient on the computer but that’s none of my business. I also pay for this app, so i’m trying to figure out why I can’t get anything done right? WHEN I PAY!!! I’m so annoyed. Y’all need to get it together because this is straight up sloppy, and it’s embarrassing on this companies behalf. Y’all should be humiliated. I get that y’all got your little money or whatever, but that does not mean the whole app needs to go to trash because y’all want to slack OFF! This app needs improvement and i know y’all know it. Every time I use this app, which is almost every day, some type of error occurs. I literally made a memo, and the ENTIRE MEMO MESSED UP FOR NO REASON! I wrote “ And some of the requirements are” and when I saved it , it said “ YYYYZZYYYZYYYyy” LIKE??! Explain to me why that happened. I am so displeased but I have to keep rocking with y’all because I pay, but let me tell y’all something, y’all are going to lose if you don’t fix this app. It’s embarrassing! Get it together, thank you.
Good App
by loriiann hayes on 2020/01/19 07:47
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!
Best design app for us novice/intermediate folks!
by piperlou on 2019/01/05 06:52
This is a great design app! Especially for those of us that love to design but don’t have all our skills honed in on Adobe ID or photoshop. Great tool and love using it for work and my side hustle! 2 suggestions one: wish you could put “your designs” in folders so I could keep my work and side projects separately. Two: when you find a graphic you like I wish it would give you the key words associated with the graphics (like tags)so you could search for more like it or just keep track of designs. A itty bitty complaint but no deal breaker—- I like the 2.0 version but it is a little irritating that I can start a design on my laptop and finish on my iPad because I used a different version. Not that big of a deal I just have to remember to start the project on 1.0. So many options and so user friendly! I have told many of my friends about this great app. I see it only getting better! 🤗
New updates make app useless
by Crazykellsbells on 2018/11/23 22:20
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!
Not iPhone/finger swipe friendly
by MatthewC21 on 2020/05/01 12:05
The idea & layouts of the app are fantastic, it offers tons of ideas & inspiration for many different types of projects. However the templates they offer are incredibly frustrating to use on my phone with my finger. When I try to edit one of the templates I find it’s too difficult to properly choose certain elements with a finger tap. When trying to change the pre-written text its next to impossible to get the curser in front of the text box’s because the program thinks I’m trying to change the background image rather than the font. When trying to resize a graphic manually it almost always shrinks the image to an microscopic size that is then impossible to enlarge again. It gets so frustrating that I end up closing the app & using something else all together. I’m sure if you’re using an iPad with a pen it works beautifully. I’ve had some luck using the blank templates to create my own ad’s but one of the biggest draws to the app are all the fantastic pre made templates available. If it were easier to use on my phone I’d pay for the premium version.
I love it but it's frustrating
by -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ- on 2018/10/17 04:39
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!
PHENOMENAL OKAY!!
by prettyloaf on 2019/07/26 02:50
This app is amazing. I started a new job , while the owner of the company was in the middle of getting things organized and up and running completely. So she asked me to make her some name tags, why in heavens did she pick me I have no idea, I didn’t even know where to start... well I just so happened to type in “make your own name tag” on google and “Canva” was an option under apps. Well I downloaded it and it was completely easy .. the name tags I made game out AMAZING. I could make the font , the size I mean whatever I dreamed of was right there for me to edit. I edited my name tags made them completely to my liking of vision , emailed them and then had them printed off and eliminated at a near by fed ex kinkos. MY BOSS WAS IN LOVE and they look completely professional! I now have a way to make future employees name tags and also received a pay raise !! I love the genius whose behind this app and THANK YOU CANVA!! You rock
Photo Folders
by HeatherLandry on 2019/05/20 13:51
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.
Too difficult to login from phone. No help from Canva
by Lorrenb1 on 2018/09/02 01:02
I find Canva okay. The app itself is great however, i’ve noticed that I can always login in on my computer but it gives me issues logging in from my phone. It won’t ever send me the reset password link if I do it from my phone. It’ll just tell me to make sure that I have the most updated version of the app and to try again even though I already do. Trying to find customer service contact info is nowhere near easy on the app and when I tried to use safari to access the website from my phone it ONLY redirected me to use the app which was already unsuccessful. As you can imagine this was a frustrating rabbit hole. I had to find an old email from Canva which has a customer service link. But when I sent a request in twice, they told me I would hear something back soon and I have heard nothing. That was last week. It should not be this difficult to get in contact with the company. Other than that, I love the app and all the options it offers once I’m able to use it. I just want to be able to use it with ease.
Same issues after one year of consistent use
by fellow business owner on 2020/05/05 16:15
I use the Canva app for iOS. It’s the only app of its kind, hence why I’m still using it. Easy to use, simple interface, and you can spend a good amount of time perfecting social media content. The problem is, is that half of the content I make within Canva does NOT save the way it appears in Canva. For example, when using a line graphic, it’s beautiful within the app and aesthetically pleasing. But the saved files shows a dashed line.. Or another issue is using multiple images in one post. When you go to save it, Canva will sometimes only register 1/4 of the images, or better yet, if they’re overlapping, the overlapped image suddenly doesn’t exist. If you’re new to digital design and learning by experience, like myself, this is your best bet unfortunately. If you’re a little more experienced, stick with Photoshop please or adobe or whatever else there is out there. For a creative, detail-orientated person like myself, the frustration with Canva saving your posts DIFFERENTLY than how it appears in the app is literally a big waste of time.
Utterly FABULOUS
by TotallyTurnedOff99 on 2020/08/14 03:37
Canva has been a true godsend. I work for a small nonprofit where I am essentially development director, social media manager, grant writer, volunteer coordinator, the marketing department, the web developer, and communications specialist rolled into one. While I am many things, I am not a graphic designer! Canva is AMAZING for us. I’m able to put together beautifully designed and aesthetically pleasing collateral materials, flyers, invitations, projects, reports...anything that could use a visual upgrade. Let’s face it, good design is ESSENTIAL to how we communicate not only the work we do as a nonprofit, but how we represent ourselves as an organization, so I am beyond grateful for Canva. Not only do they provide their pro version free to nonprofits, but the interface is so user friendly that my less confident colleagues have even ventured to use it. I have been raving about Canva to folks for a couple of years now, and every update is spectacular.
Very good app
by Mrclutch420 on 2019/11/06 00:17
They’re always trying to improve this app and they’re very much on top of things. I use this app nearly every day to make edits and designs and it has been extremely helpful for me. With every app, it takes some time to getting used to, but it’s a great app! 👍🏻 Ps, there has been an issue lately where the app closes an edit if you leave the app for even like 1 minute. It makes you re-open the edit over and over again. This is the only issue I have ever really had. Also when I saved my edits, the fonts would sometimes move around. You can get past this by simply screenshotting the pic, and then cropping it in your phone:) hope that helps someone out there! I have confidence that the Canva team will continue to make improvements and fix these minor issues.
Not worth subscribing for
by Treyvon03 on 2019/04/23 07:47
I’m not one to leave reviews because I genuinely find great apps to use and those that I don’t like I get rid of immediately. As for Canva, a service I’ve used for years(on desktop) I didn’t expect the app to work the way it did. Working on a basic level without any pro-level editing I tried to create a document, and the app wouldn’t do what I wanted. Fearing that it was just because I was using the free version I paid for the subscription, and that didn’t fix my issues. Frames wouldn’t line up, adding text was insanely difficult, and subscribing to any of there services is a complete waste of time and our money. In addition to those issue the app was filled with other frustrating things, it crashes, freezes, and restarting my phone won’t work for this app (I have a new phone). I’ve reached out to Apple and they weren’t able to help because this was completely on mine and Canvas behalf. DON’T GET TRICKED LIKE I DID, DON’T DEPEND ONTHE MOBILE VERSION, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DON’T BUY ANY SERVICES FROM CANVA. Hopefully, they fix there problems and QUIT SCAMMING it’s user because this truly had been a great service and now I’ve lost trust.
Good but glitches
by sirrahana on 2020/10/13 15:09
I have experienced time and time again where certain elements won't work, and some things even disappear while editing. Currently in the process of making a flyer and the picture just disappears into thin air. Nothing that I've done could've caused this as I've tried to fix the issue to no avail. There have been times that I tried to put my logo on an image, and on Canva it will show as transparent and look how it's supposed to, but then when you go to save it has a white background(??) and i'm not sure why when I know it uploaded as a PNG file. There have also been instances where something looks one way when I save it, but somehow goes wonky during the download process because it looks different once in the camera roll, and for this reason I sometimes have to screenshot the artwork just to save the integrity of it. I will continue to use but if there is any way to fix these glitches that would make my user experience much smoother.
Help
by VV1956 on 2018/12/28 02:52
I really really want to like this app and website. I recently downloaded to iPhone, iPad and website on Mac. There seems to be limited help and support for figuring out how to do things. The tutorials are extremely basic and I’m struggling with completing a few tasks. The potential is huge but the iPad app to so very basic you can’t do much. You cannot got to the web version in Safari because it forces you to use the iPad app instead. I’ve tried to email support for help but there is no support so I ended up finding a link stating something was broken. We’ll see if the developer answers. There needs to be a better system for figuring out to use this. I am trying to navigate within the website version on my Mac because that’s really where this shines however some of it doesn’t take any sense. For example, I created a logo but cant seem to use it anywhere or create other things I need like business cards, postcards, website banner etc. using that exact same logo. It should be easier. Help!
Great app that’s been ruined
by Cameron0208 on 2020/03/19 01:34
Canva used to be a great app. Keywords being ‘USED TO’. App is hot garbage now. Terrible controls that make editing nearly impossible - you are basically forced to rework your entire design any time you need to edit or move a single item because the selection control is abysmal. It actually takes LESS time to delete and start over than it does to select the item you want to edit, edit it, and continue. That’s RIDICULOUS! Almost every single review mentions the awful selection controls, yet all the Canva team does is say ‘Sorry’. No one wants or cares about an apology. How about you fix the issue?! App also has a ‘bug’ (probably intentional) where if you add an image with transparent background, the app adds a background automatically. Uhh. It’s transparent for a reason! The designs you save are NEVER the way they look in the app. Hey Canva, newsflash, you don’t get people to buy a pro subscription by making the free version a limited piece of garbage. You apparently need to learn that. Maybe you can learn that after you learn how to make a good app. Until then, app deleted.
Great for what it does but could be better
by Gabneg on 2019/03/12 21:04
I wish a few tweaks were made to make it more efficient. First, I wish I could filter through free images but it won’t let me. I get the pop up message telling me to upgrade. If it’s not available on the free version then don’t make it an option. It’s so time consuming scrolling through hundreds of images/graphics trying to find free ones but hey it’s the price I don’t pay 😊 I wish I was able to save different versions of my designs. Just because I change one aspect of it doesn’t mean I want the current version saved/overwritten. Now I have to make a copy make the changes there then save that copy as my other edited version which is a pain and can be easily fixed. I also wish there was an option that would allow me to write/draw On my designs. Overall, it’s great for what I need it to do but minor tweaks could make it that much more amazing.
Finally gave up on paid subscription
by midtnmomma on 2019/09/22 13:18
I’ve been using Canva for over two years, and had the paid subscription for the past year. I used the mobile version almost exclusively, and it had issues more often than it actually worked as expected. I wrote a review one time and attempted to get help only to be told “we can’t replicate the issue”, and coincidentally, there was an update after I submitted the issue that fixed the problem. It crashes, features don’t perform the way they should, most recently, it failed repeatedly to save a very simple graphic over multiple attempts in a 24 hour period. I’ve cancelled the subscription and will be using other apps that are more dependable. Not to mention it seems as though the “free” illustration options improved under the paid service-items I don’t recall being able to use when I wasn’t paying were now showing as though they were available for free...confusing, and such a disappointment because I do like the simplicity of the app.
i want to love it...
by yay! 🤗 on 2020/10/11 05:11
let’s start with the good. i love the variety of fonts, and how you can make videos easily with it. i use canva very often for making my Pinterest board covers or wallpapers. however... there’s many things that i hate about this app. for one, half the time i press the download button it doesn’t actually download, which is extremely annoying. also: the amount of features that pro members get is overwhelming. as a 12-year-old who has no money, i can’t exactly buy the pro version, but i can’t do much with the free version either. adding a few more free features would be nice. it would also be cool if you could download your own fonts without having to upgrade to pro... and also more editing tools like being able to curve text and stuff like that. overall, canva is a great app. i’d just really appreciate it if you could make these changes. thank you.
Great app but PLUS is extremely expensive
by Hotdogracecarlover on 2020/02/24 05:23
Canva is excellent. I’ve been using it for years and I am always satisfied. There are some minor annoyances but it’s good for the most part. I have had a lot of issues with Canva not saving my login accounts and as a result I’ve lost 3 accounts and around 200 designs, no matter what I do and who I contact, I cannot get into those accounts. It’s extremely annoying and needs to be fixed immediately. The mobile app also needs some UI work. I am switching to other cheaper apps because I wanted to get Canva Plus but it’s ridiculously expensive for a few simple features that I can circumvent easily. Why would I pay for a something when I can just go around it instead?! I highly recommend that Canva offer different levels of PLUS membership, offering more features as the monthly rate increases of course. I think at least 3 different programmes that allow people to only pay for what they need.
Not Good With Text
by aratuk on 2020/02/20 05:52
My rating is for this app, not the Canva service. The Canva service and templates are great, but in this app it’s frustratingly difficult to move the cursor around to edit text. This is partly due to the limitations of touchscreen input not being able to recognize user intent, but the app should, for instance, assume that you intend to simply move the cursor within the text field you are already editing before it determines you want to resize a large solid background element behind it, and zooms out to accommodate, making it difficult to get back to where you were. It is also harder than it should be to zoom in because the same gesture is used to resize objects, and there are usually objects all over a graphically-intensive document. Something like this happens a dozen times in a row, and then you quit the app to go write a bad review 😕 This app is okay for a quick project with a limited number of graphical objects and not much text, but it needs to be a lot more precise to take full advantage of the Canva service.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
Little Design Issues
by tayhow14 on 2020/07/16 16:16
I really like Canva. I love how there are a lot of free options and you can uploaded pictures easily and it’s very interactive. All of the templates are very useful and there are so many design options to choose from! The only things I have had a problem with is that it’s not real time collaborative. It’s frustrating when you have a few people working on something but you can’t work on it all at the same time. Another issue I have encountered is that you can’t save something as a PDF on your phone you have to log into a computer to do that which is personally very inconvenient to me. Those are the only things I see could be fixed and other than that this app is amazing and I definitely recommend. It’s very clean and user friendly and I always tell people to use this for their design needs. Thank you for the great work Canva!
Was ok, but now you have to pay...
by MaloryB on 2019/04/19 16:11
From recommendations from others, I started using this app and absolutely loved it...even though some of the pics weren’t great quality at times, when downloading pdf versions my items were missing or in different places all over my projects (I still managed to make it work out ok in other ways), and trying to save or edit my projects at times took too long. Because others loved this so much and even used it for their projects (and because I didn’t know of any other apps to use because this was so easy to use when I first started), I have kept this app. Now, to use some of the features I frequently used, I have to pay. I’m sorry to sound negative, but at first...this was such an awesome app. And ever since I first started using it last year, every update that’s happened, this app has started become one I don’t go to as much as I did at the beginning. I don’t mind a onetime fee if it’s #1...affordable...and #2...worth the cost. Sorry.
The App version of Canva has become awful
by Devonne123 on 2020/06/01 19:02
I’ve used Canva over the last few years for my resumes and some collages and never had a problem. I would mostly use it on my phone because of the convenience and have had issues with my laptop keyboard so I didn’t use the desktop version much. Sometime in the last months, they may have updated the app version or changed something in their system that makes the app so buggy to use. Nothing moves to where you want it, things will move even if you don’t want it to, you can’t grab the text u want because it’ll grab literally everything else around it, changing sizes of text and images is an 5 min ordeal. I’ve tried using the app on my iPhone and iPad and it so difficult to change anything you want on an document anymore. Honestly the desktop version I don’t have an issue with and have been stuck with using. Don’t even bother with the app, just use the desktop version if you have the option.
The iPad/iPhone app needs work
by Shirpaderpa on 2020/07/12 18:04
Canva can turn anyone into artists, designers, and content creators. It is incredibly easy to use and offers beautiful templates, graphics, stock photos and more. I’ve been using it for a couple of years now to create social media content and promotional/educational flyers. However, I have one BIG complaint... working on a design across multiple devices (desktop/laptop to iPhone to iPad) is SO challenging and extremely glitchy. For example, I created a flyer in Canva on my laptop. When I open it in my iPad, the spacing between objects and text is messed up and random bullet points have been added to my lists. It’s hard to navigate, move graphics, and edit anything on the iPad (and iPhone). Please at least create an tablet/iPad-friendly version of Canva that has a similar interface as the computer application. The iPad Pro is the most popular tablet for designers and content creators.
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2020/04/11 09:49
Absolutely love this app but very frustrated with a few glitches, as I use this proffesionally and keep running into the same issues. Issues are as follows: when making a design and everything is aligned perfect and ready to save, after saving the graphic is saved differently than the graphic that was finalized. Text moves, words overlap, animations move locations, or alignment changes. In addition, when using the video feature, the logo is no longer transparent. I pay for the premium version and unfortunately a few times realized the changes after already sharing the graphic to social accounts. Sometimes ill fix and change multiple times only for it to happen again and again. It seems I am saving 10 different versions of each graphic before getting the one I finalized and sometimes have to start over from scratch.
Too many glitches
by SadeTC on 2019/03/21 15:08
After i decided to pay for the subscription, the app seemed to get glitchy. Once I’m done with a project and I exit that project and go back into it, my last changes are not saved. I still don’t like that I can’t download a project without the background via my mobile phone. I have to save it and access it from my laptop and that’s a huge inconvenience because I mostly work on the go. Majority of the time, I have to save my work for later, until I get home and this slows my business down. Or I have to take my laptop with me today everywhere I go. I don’t like that once I choose colors for a logo, the most recent colors I’ve chosen aren’t there anymore. That feature somehow vanished. Please makes this better. I really like this app but it’s frustrating when I use it.
Best Website/Application I Have Ever Downloaded!
by Krish.v123 on 2020/01/10 20:17
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST APPLICATIONS I HAVE EVER OWNED. I wish I could give it more than those 5 stars! Obviously started out with the website but once I saw the app, I was jumping up and down with excitement. Canva has truly been a life savor for all my creative endeavors. I use it for meeting materials, personal content creation, presentations, and possibly anything I could think of! I literally never write reviews but as I was working on my presentation materials on canva, I was just thinking, wow, I really hope canva is here to stay forever and I wanted to share my positive feedback for the features, usability and just everything that this website has done for me. I really hope I can continue to use the basic version for free because I don’t think I could live without canva haha.
Takes forever to design
by Bdbfndndnsj on 2020/06/18 13:59
I like the apps variety and aestethic but I cannot stress how long it takes to make a flyer or a post. If I want to edit a text it just zooms in on the post or flyer, on the wrong piece of text and then zooms out and I can keep going like that for 10-15 minutes until I can finally click on the text I have to edit. And thats not including all the other texts or details on the post or flyer that I am trying to customize. When I delete a text too this ‘shadow’ of the deleted text is left behind on the post/flyer and its just very frustrating considering its been over 2 hours and I still cant finish because I cannot edit texts or details because the app just wont select what I am clicking on. Saving designs too come with defects and this isn't the first review that talks about it. It really is time you guys invest in people that can ACTUALLY effectively fix these many many bugs. Because there is more but I will leave it here.
0/5
by Johnnykush87 on 2019/10/06 21:18
I used this program for a while and thought it was great at first. The templates are straightforward and plentiful. Then I realized just how unstable it is. Not only does it crash all the time and delete progress but it also rearranges everything you put down in the slightest way so as to goof up everything. Then I got an email from my internet protection service alerting me that can a had gotten hacked and that they my personal information. Ever since then I’ve been dealing with hackers trying to get into all of my accounts. Just yesterday I had to cancel my debit card because some people who lifted my login and personal info from Canva started spending my money. I’d rate this app as 0/10 if I could because it’s been nothing but a headache from the start. I just wish I could go back in time and never make an account in the first place.
I keep getting logged out
by predictivetextwrotethis on 2019/04/15 15:24
This app would get a 5 star rating if it didn’t boot me out every few days. When I try to sign back in with Facebook, it loads Facebook, I hit continue, the “sign in” button turns gray with a loading graphic, then it just turns green and says “sign in” again... back to square one. I have to close the app out and try it several times over before I can get back in. Also a little annoying that I can’t work on ANYTHING in the app without internet. If I lose signal for a minute, in the middle of working on something displays up a pop up notification that I’m not online and then closes out my work with no progress saved. If it had done nothing and let me keep doing what i was doing until the signal came back it would have been fine. 🤦🏼‍♀️ so, a few bugs, but the app overall is a good one.
Update rendered Canva unusable on iPad Pro
by Gx Cori on 2018/11/25 08:26
My camera roll does not show in this new Canva and frankly I hate that I no longer can work on Canva in Landscape mode on iPad Pro. Was my main reason for using Canva above others. Horrible update. I will be finding something else to use. I wanted to add I don’t like the desktop version updates either. I had forever been trying to test out the video option and couldn’t find it. This totally set back our Black Friday prep, I was literally about to pay for a subscription when I started seeing all the updates. I use Promo-Republic to post to social media, because of the metrics, but their editor is horrible, so I would make Canva graphics to import and use instead. Their editor is now better than Canva, but that’s not saying much. They have no iPad app. But at least I can use it web based in portrait mode on my iPad. Right before holidays is a terrible time to update especially when so many small businesses depend on Canva. I had to go to Adobe Spark...poor substitute, ugh. Canva fix all of it!
Great... but some small annoyances
by Coaster Enthused on 2020/04/05 07:41
I love all things design. This app has an easy to navigate interface with user friendly controls. What doesn’t give it the 5 stars for me are all minor things. I have a lot of major battery drainage while using it it when keeping the app open. I will note that the device I’m using is an iPhone 7 Plus so it’s a little old. It’s a little slow to load but not massively. The more annoying thing to me is the item boxes. I have a lot of text in my current project, and I’m using lines to seperate some of it. The box for the lines go over my text so that I can’t edit or move it without moving the line first. It’s really frustrating when working with this a lot. Overall I’d recommend it, but watch out for items that you need a pro subscription to use or need to pay a separate fee for.
I want to use images but I can’t use them
by Elsa Hammons on 2020/07/09 18:31
There are some images that I would LOVE to use, but I don’t have Canva Plus, therefore I cannot use them. This annoys me because the image I found is perfect for what I want to use it for, but I can’t even use it so then my designs are a lot worse. If one was able to watch an ad to use one image once (if they wanted to use it again in the same design, watch another ad. Or if they want to use it in another design, watch another ad) that would be AMAZING!!! It might get repetitive and cheese us off, but we can at least use all of the images, of course by watching an ad. (Also, if we could watch an ad to download a logo with a transparent background, that’d be very cool beans!!!) However, with Canva Plus, you would not have to watch ads, and you would still get Magic Resize and all of the other fun snazzy stuff as well. This works well for all; the developers still get paid for their work, and the users get to use all of the images. This even helps developers of other apps, since the ads are for their apps (and we users might be convinced to download them). Please at least consider this, but I hope that you developers find this idea to be useful, and integrate it into your app. Thank you, have a good day!!!
SO frustrating
by AshlanMarie on 2018/10/25 20:18
I loved this app for about a month while using it to create instagram posts and blog graphics from my phone. Everything was great...until out of nowhere the app stopped working. Even after redownloading the app, restarting my phone and even going so far as to contact “customer service” (who, by the way, never contacted me back) I have been having issues where when I go to create or edit a template my designs will not be saved or as I’m attempting to save the image graphics, text and whatnot get moved/displaced. The only way I can get around it sometimes is by having to screenshot my finished work then going into my photos and cropping everything else out which leads to poor resolution. That worked for maybe a week before I experienced another issue where when I go to move graphics or text it gets completely sent off the screen/resized and I’m unable to put it back to the sizing I need. Even after using the “undo” arrow when I attempt to move my work around AGAIN it does the SAME THING before the app just crashes and kicks me out. It now takes me over 2 hours to complete something that would only take me MAYBE 20 minutes before. I’m so frustrated with this app and so disappointed after receiving such great service the first month of use. My phone and the app are both up to date with no technical issues. I have yet to try this on my iPad out of fear I’ll just grow more frustrated.
