Really love this but...
by AmaB7 on 2020/04/03 06:16
There are soooo many thing to love about this app, but the two things that are keeping this from being a 5 star rating are: 1 - when I try to save 1 post out of a multi post project, ALL of the posts (up to 30) are default selected and I have then uncheck each one but the ONE I want...can we get a “select/deselect all” option on the mobile app? 2 - whenever I download a post from the mobile app, it saves as a though the picture is in a grid so I ultimately have to crop the picture from my phones photo gallery...it’s tedious and SUPER annoying. Thought these would be fixed with the recent update but no dice.
Amazing
by ccat554 on 2020/04/03 03:44
Can I just THANK the creators of this App. Thank you. I have a blog and I constantly need images/graphics. Canva makes it so much easier to create captivating posts. Thank you so much. I have been using it for a few years now and I’ve had no issues. 10/10 recommend!!!!

by Agalaxy888 on 2020/04/01 17:21
It is pretty laggy and doesn’t work very well I try to add things but sometimes it works it also drains a lot of battery I kept getting very angry when it does not work.

Great concept - bad app
by starcatdog on 2020/03/31 16:17
This app is so frustrating! It makes working with it absolutely maddening. It crashes. It glitches. It’s practically impossible to click on anything. Awful awful awful. Please fix this.
Too smart for its own good
by DOAQUEEN on 2020/03/31 05:18
I downloaded the app. Though I live in China I’m not Chinese and it keeps downloading in Chinese not even giving me the option of English. 😩🤦🏾‍♀️
Blurry pictures
by dassystar on 2020/03/31 04:27
Everytime I design with canva and I save it, it always appear blur in my phone gallery, why? Most times I have to screenshot my designs to avoid this, please do something about it

It’s a good app! But..
by CakeDonutsMilkshakesYAYY on 2020/03/30 19:52
Canva is a really good, and it’s really helpful. I do Canva on an iPad, so it’s not the BEST. It keeps freezing and doesn’t load very quickly...
Crashes
by _bwd on 2020/03/30 00:10
Every time I try to use it the app crashes.
Keeps crashing!

Why does this app keep crashing?! resetting my phone still is not fixing the problem
First day, but loving it so far
by Madkatsuperwoman on 2020/03/29 11:42
Heard many great things about this app. Loving it so far, however it is very finicky. It freezes up and now I can’t see what I am typing. Didn’t have this issue until after I downloaded this app.
Too many glitches
by Bogroup on 2020/03/29 04:18
Canva is usually a wonderful app that is perfect for all my business needs. The IOS app is NOT good. Every once in a while it will just close by itself or will freeze the screen and then close itself. Sometimes when you look at all your projects it shows the original stock photo and template instead of what you added. By the way my phone isn’t old it’s an iPhone 7 every other app works great. I’ll be giving it another chance soon.
Nothing like the desktop app
by Muppeto on 2020/03/29 04:13
This iPad version of Canva is so simplistic that it makes it complicated. Everything on the desktop app is just so much better in every way. I’m not sure why, but the screenshots of the iPad app in the App Store differ vastly from what the app actually looks like. The screenshots look exactly like the desktop app does, and I was excited to see this when I first downloaded the iPad app. But after using it, everything is in a different place and most options are hidden. The way the app appears in the screenshots is how it should still be, in my opinion. I’ve been using Canva for years and I enjoy the desktop app very much, however I wanted to start using the iPad app when I go on trips or work from home, but it’s so unnecessarily different that I don’t think I’ll be using it, unfortunately, unless is gets changed.
Keeps crashing
by Jasmine2729 on 2020/03/28 03:04
You would think that after paying for the monthly services this app wouldn't have any issues, however when trying to resize a post I keep getting an error message ”There’s a problem resizing” check you Internet connection. So annoying especially since I'm using my home wifi 📶 service.

Hard to Use
by dataskatt on 2020/03/26 22:56
This program is very hard to use unless you start with a blank canvas. Editing existing designs is very hard and clunky. Simply changing font size is a nightmare. Update: I received developer feedback on this review which didn’t even relate to what I said. I went back and gave the app another shot. I stand by what I said. This app is unbearably hard to use. The work flow is very cumbersome. I am a graphic designer. I wanted something simple to design a quick Instagram post, etc. Nothing fancy. This app doesn’t deliver. I have no idea how it’s so highly rated.
Annoying
by cmd731 on 2020/03/26 16:30
I wish the app was as functional as the desktop version. It’s frustrating to maneuver and difficult to edit designs.
Lost Designs
by Beloved Prissy on 2020/03/26 12:22
I must say that I love this app but, I’ve recently went to the app to check my designs and sadly to say they are no longer there. All of my hard work I can’t seem to find it. I’ve tried to update the app, but to no avail I’ve been unsuccessful in finding my work.
Disappointing
by boggi33 on 2020/03/26 06:58
After updating the app, I can’t log into my account so i can no longer use it
Terrible app with many formatting issues

This app is so frustrating. Bummed I purchased it but luckily it’s a monthly thing so I will cancel for sure.
Wow something is wrong

Looks like the app got updated but would not launch. Longtime app user here. Had to delete it and will not reinstall. Sad.
Meh
by dallasbaby123 on 2020/03/25 18:21
This app is super awesome. However I have found that it is SLOW on ALL of my devices, new and old. It lags when doing everything. Great app but very frustrating to use Editing my review because I feel the response team gave me a generic copy paste reply telling me to simply restart the app. Whether you have 0 or 100 apps running, restart or not, the app is slow.

I have used my canva account three times and apparently i had canva pro . so yesterday my account got charged $119 and the company was not helpful or willing to refund. i am upset by the sleezy sakes tactics of this company.

I want to love it
by Heathfeath718 on 2020/03/23 23:51
It has a lot of good options and overall is relatively user friendly. But God forbid you put a shape or little line in and then want to move it. I can never get it to select again, so you’re just stuck wherever you accidentally put it. Also freaks out sometimes when I try and adjust background images. More frustrating than it’s worth.
Simple
by Morgiilovedoll on 2020/03/23 19:16
Canva is simple and easy to navigate. Helps for business or even sharing on social media!💓
I agree with Blogbarger’s review
by A Copywriter on 2020/03/23 19:07
It’s 2020 and the Canva app still has those time-wasting quirks. Either the production team did not listen to Blogbarger, or they were unable to fix the bugs. Either way, it takes two stars off a product that would otherwise get five.
Excelente, pero...
by Joshuad Moises on 2020/03/23 17:49
La app es excelente. La uso muy seguido y es mi herramienta principal para crear mis libros digitales por medio de documentos A4 y luego exportarlos a PDF. Aunque la página web (obviamente) sea más completa y productiva, la app móvil ayuda.
Bored at Work
by Stutabaegaen on 2020/03/23 10:50
Well I probably gave it five stars cause it’s newer/fresher, I used Poster My Wall a lot and thought, “Ya know I’m getting bored with this, maybe I should try something a little more fresher. So I found Canva and I love it, now I have to write lyrics that fit the cover, I think a collaboration project is in the works!!!
✨Book Covers!✨
by ✨Shadowfax✨ on 2020/03/23 00:38
As a freelance writer whose lack of graphic design skills often outweighed the desire to make book covers, I must say that Canva was incredibly helpful. Every other writer I knew recommended it after displaying dazzling covers they had made themselves, so I gave it a shot. Despite offering a monthly subscription fee for the “full version”, Canva still provides so much creative freedom with the free version. The absence of an eraser tool, however, frustrates me. That’s my only complaint; the app is fabulous.
Great platform

Saving problem
by Zeina Bm on 2020/03/20 23:47
First of all i want to thank you for this amazing app Second please i need your urgently, i always used to edit and create stuff om canvas but for the first time i’m facing a huge problem. I’ve been trying to fix a picture for 4 hours but whenever i come to save it, it’s saving differently. The background i want it transparent, once i save it, it goes back to its normal appearance i tried 10 times to re-do it but the problem is still the same when it comes to saving.
YOUR STUPID APP!

AMAZING APP
by GatchaArtist11 on 2020/03/20 14:58
All I have to say is this app is so amazing. But I do wish more things were for free.
I’d rather use the web version than the app.
by CSymone on 2020/03/20 11:36
The app had A LOT of glitches. I find it easier to edit my projects on the website. I use the canva app on my iPad and my iPhone and I even tried paying for the monthly subscription in order to have a smooth editing process. I canceled my subscription and I just work from the web browser. I might delete my apps because they are useless for me.

Slightly disappointed
by isaiah4▫️ on 2020/03/19 18:19
For an app that I’m paying $12 monthly for, I’d expect A LOT less problems. The graphics I am creating aren’t saving as they appear in the app, they look completely different.
Mobile Crash
by theNobleDrunkard on 2020/03/19 15:21
The app usually works well - as of the last 48 hours the mobile app can’t handle simple text edits and immediately crashes when attempting to do so.
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.
Glitchy and sensitive.
by sanjudewfvcwec on 2020/03/18 21:19
This app does not makeup for what it lacks with what it is. It is IMPOSSIBLE to choose where you want to type and I find it often glitching a deleting my wok. I like the templates they have and they come in handy when I have a project to do but it tales forever to get the app to work with you. It is extremely sensitive and cannot track your finger. I do not recommend this app unless you absolutely have to use it. I would say use it as a place for ideas and templates but use PicCollage, google, or anything else to make an actually project.
App is not optimized well for iPhone
by Boricua93 on 2020/03/18 18:07
App user interface makes it way too difficult to edit text without moving things halfway across the picture. I hate using it on the iPhone. Desktop version is awesome but iPhone (I have a Xs) is just too small to use it without frustrations. Maybe if it had a landscape mode that may help.
Major problems need to be fixed.
by SG15327 on 2020/03/18 16:05
I use Canva every single day for my marketing class, so I decided to download the app thinking it would be much easier to use with my IPad. I was very wrong. It refuses to recognize any edits that I try to make, and it just won’t let me edit some text boxes. I am very disappointed and frustrated.
Love it but lots of problems
by Nikolatx on 2020/03/18 01:55
Canva is amazing but this app has issues. Whwn making designs, the apps saves them completly different (text usually moved). Another thing i noticed is that you can’t change gradient colors on shapes. And in multiple pages files you can’t save only one page. Hope you can fix this 😊
Great App, Just Not on the iPad Pro.
by KaylaBee12 on 2020/03/17 23:10
I’m a small business over and I use Canva for all of my graphics. I also happen to run a majority of my business from my iPad Pro. I don’t know what the heck it is about Canva on the iPad Pro, but the app does not respond well to my touch. I go to edit a text at the bottom of my graphic but it selects something at the top of the page instead. When I publish a graphic, I have to double check it before I post it on my business because the lines look one way in the app but then look totally different in the saved image. PLEASE, Canva, FIX THIS! I don’t want to have to cancel my subscription!
UNAUTHORIZED charges, HORRIBLE customer service
by Cassaunova on 2020/03/17 22:19
My experience with this company has been AWFUL. I very rarely write reviews, but this is important and needs to be shared. If nothing else, I hope this will either get their attention enough to solve the issue, or save someone else the headache of dealing with this. I started a 1 month trial subscription on November 18th of last year. I cancelled on December 16th, two days before it ended. On December 17th, I had a charge on my bank account from Canva. I immediately contacted them (which is extremely difficult and not user friendly at all), and received an email back stating I was still on the trial period. There was no explanation given as to why I was charged, but they did state that they would NOT be able to refund me, and that I would have to take it up with Apple. However, since I had done my part in cancelling the subscription within the required time frame, Apple couldn’t do anything either. I then called my bank to have the charge reversed. After explaining the situation, they kindly reversed the charge. The next month, January, it happened again. I repeat the same steps from the previous month; I email Canva, call my bank, and have the charge reversed. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY?! YEP. SAME THING. I reach out YET AGAIN, and this time they basically say “OOPS, it *was* on a pro-subscription and that’s why I’m being charged. But oh, not to worry, they’re going to *cancel it immediately* and issue me $45 worth of Canva credits!” Not a refund, nope, just credits to use with their company. FUMING, I call my bank again. This time, since it has now happened THREE TIMES, they are able to put a stop payment on the company. And thank goodness they did, because GUESS WHAT JUST HAPPENED TODAY. Luckily with the stop payment activated, my card wasn’t charged. Instead, I got an email from Canva saying “Action required - please update your payment details. Please log in and update your credit or debit card details so we can process payment for your Canva Pro subscription.” I DON’T HAVE A PRO SUBSCRIPTION!!! Canva, if you are reading this, just last month, you ASSURED me that it would be cancelled immediately and everything would be sorted out, yet HERE WE ARE AND YOU ARE STILL ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE ME!! It’s been FOUR MONTHS of this. Everyone please be mindful and proactive of this, or better yet, FIND A DIFFERENT APP. *Scroll through the one star reviews and you will see others who this has also happened to. BEWARE!
Exasperating
by We_Koo on 2020/03/17 18:58
I am using the Canva app on an iPhone 8+. My fingers are not big at all, but I often encounter trouble with layers and editing them. I’ll tap on one piece of text and another element that is no where near it will be become selected. I am pretty good with electronics and must say that it should not be this hard. Canva on a computer or laptop works well, but this app experience has yet to benefit me.
Worst design app ever!
by pehjs on 2020/03/17 16:38
Omg I was working on a presentation and then all of a sudden, my debit disappear! Yeah it has cool layouts, but Omg, this is the worst design app ever! I wouldn’t use it anymore, I hate this app so much I would give it no stars. I hate this app because it deleted everything!
Thank you

Canva....Made life easy
Has potential
by idchef27 on 2020/03/17 04:20
So, I’ve been using this app for work for social media posts, menu design and so on. This app has potential to be really good, but at least on iPhone 6 has a lot of bugs. Would give five stars if hours of my work weren’t ruined because it won’t stay zoomed in...when you tap to edit while zoomed in it zooms out. Try to select an area to edit, it selects a totally different part of the project. Try to move things and it moves or erases something else. Would be really simple if it worked as it was designed, but the constant re editing makes things impossible. Try to edit and it screws up sometime else. Fix the bugs I’ll give five stars.
Incredibly frustrating!
by c_holloway on 2020/03/17 01:32
I subscribed to the pro version to try and remove backgrounds from some pictures. I cannot figure out how to actually do this! I’ve even googled and YouTubed how to. Everything says to use the editing toolbar, but where is the flippin editing toolbar?!? The only options it gives 3 options and “effects” is not one of them. Not worth paying for at all.
Great app; one thing...
by #helpful_reviewer on 2020/03/16 23:26
This app is great. It had what I was looking for and more. The templates are large in variety, but as far as the images, a lot of the best ones are not available unless you go pro, or purchase them. Nonetheless, you can still get done what you want to accomplish. Great job Canva! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
The App is hard to use
by Alanah.Ysabel on 2020/03/16 19:55
I love Canva when using my laptop. It’s amazing. However, the app is so hard to use. I need to change one sentence on my resume, and the app won’t let me select the right field and edit it. I’ve been sitting on my phone for over an hour trying to fix one sentence!
PNG and purchasing issues
by eroticka on 2020/03/16 08:51
I had the app about two months. My only issues are I’m unable to add png images with transparent backgrounds. They automatically convert to jpeg. Also when I make purchases on certain images, they allow me to change the color thru the app but once I save it , the edits do not show
Constant log in problems
by mnester8 on 2020/03/15 23:16
I have redownloaded and deleted the app 5 times now because of log in issues. Once in the app is great but always have problems with log in for some reason
Gem! Easy to use.
by Treasure Tresses on 2020/03/15 21:58
As a small business owner I find this app perfect to use to promote my business easily and conveniently. It has everything you need to start when you’re doing it yourself!
Not for IPad
by Smurfml on 2020/03/15 21:46
This App is actually amazing, but not for IPads. It is almost impossible to make any changes without going crazy. With the touchscreen it is VERY difficult to find the exact point to be able to change the writing, move the shapes or anything else. Please, do something to fix it!
best app for thumbnail creating
by Yellow beast games on youtube on 2020/03/15 21:00
extremely easy to use and great for beginner creators like me. I use it all the time!
We need you to work Especially during COVID-19
by CerebralEnt on 2020/03/15 13:50
I don&#39;t know what going on with Canva. The app is glitchy and it won&#39;t respond to actions such as editing texts. Right now faulty apps is the last thing freelancers need while social distancing. Please fix these so we can do our work, whatever remains of it.
Designer
by @Alldayboogie on IG on 2020/03/15 02:24
Probably the best design tool out there. Intuitive. Decisive. And just an all around multi-purpose creative tool you can pick up for just about any project you have. Promise you, you will not regret it.
Awesome tool
by arichelle84 on 2020/03/14 22:56

Resume builder not mobile friendly AT ALL

Went from OK to Total Failure
by Geo_ on 2020/03/14 14:23
The app Went from being OK to being a Total Failure. I can no longer use it on an iPad Pro. It goes from one error or obstacle to another. I finally gave up and deleted it. Both Over and Bazzart are better anyway.
Used to love it
by Thephoenixlights on 2020/03/14 05:39
Now every time I try to add an image, it shows an uncropped version of the image, or if I get it to load the cropped version, it’s cut off at places I didn’t crop it. Very frustrating. This only started happening recently, so I don’t know if it’s a bad update or what.
Great tool
by DLaniceJackson on 2020/03/14 04:12
The flexibility and variety of Canva is really what makes it such a fun tool and app to use. I can take my designs anywhere with me and not worry about anything getting lost. If I leave something unfinished, I just come back to it whenever I’m ready and the rough draft will still be there. I really love it !
It takes my money !
by brianaaaa02 on 2020/03/14 03:19
i paid 1.99 to save my logo and when i checked my bank it took 69 dollars ! this is ridiculous . i need my money back !
Enjoyable but could be better.

I really enjoy the app and it gets the job done for the basics (templates, creating images, etc). It would be 5 stars if it had the same premium features as the web version. The custom fonts, all of the design &amp; effect options. The transparent backgrounds. That would make the app 5 stars so that I’m not going from Canva, to a font app, to a filter app.

I really love testers their amazing I love the pictures their really cute I especially love the ice cream one!
Love it, but not as much as I use to...
by SillyLiLRoundThings on 2020/03/13 23:13
What a great app, I love love love this. I will say, however I miss being able to use it on my iPad . You folks changed it a bit a while back and now I can only use it on my desktop. If it was more user friendly on my iPad I would buy the upgraded version. But bottom line this is great and I love it, I am not a tech savvy person at all, and I’m able to use it just fine...on my desktop -that is :)
The Best!
by Jonny Arrow on 2020/03/13 20:55
For what I do in life, this is the best app ever! Create the fliers you need for whatever you need in a flash!
Deleted all my work & slow
by deleted all my work on 2020/03/13 03:05
I went to the Canva with high hopes but I was sorely disappointed. I had an assignment to finish and I spent so long perfecting the slides only for it to crash on me and delete all of my work. Not to mention when I tried to type it, it could not keep up. Everything was fine up until I had to type the portions of the slides. I spent so long on each slides and waited for it to load only for the screen to go blank and when it finally loaded on the “my projects” page (and that page did not show any of my other projects from the past either) and when it finally appeared, only the title page loaded, all of my slides were gone! What if I had finished and paid the $15 for the canva photos only for all my work to disappear.

Not good editing
by Bro jangles 2134672 on 2020/03/12 15:54
I’ve been using this app for 3 days and I’ve had trouble every day trying to get text boxes and editing them.
Problem
by AkiraPatten on 2020/03/12 05:36
The app is having problems. Usually love to use but every time I type anything, it won’t allow me to move or edit anything else unless I delete that one thing and then re-do it. The saved edit/photo also comes out blurred.
Good

Love & hate relationship
by abbs;) on 2020/03/11 22:51
Canva is super awesome at times. It has cute stickers, templates, and fonts but sometimes when I save my projects things will be moved and colors will be changed. It’s super frustrating when you work on a time sensitive project and then you have to restart because no colors have saved and fonts or elements have moved. I don’t know if this is a bug or something, but I’d love for it to get fixed because this app could be fantastic.
Amazing app

I love this app. So easy to use. Many options to choose from to individualize your own so easy to use and really allows me to be creative graphic.

Worst App Ever
by smooshedpotato on 2020/03/11 15:48
This app is almost impossible to use. You cannot change the test boxes easily, the format of the pre made stencils cannot be changed. I do not recommend this app for creating posters, infographics, etc.
More bugs than useful features
by .:|ally|:. on 2020/03/11 04:17
Want to change the size of the photo against a background? Canva will zoom in on the photo instead Want to change font color? Canva will load at the pace of dialup from the 90s This app has too many bugs and definitely wasn’t designed by people who actually would use it: people who do social media marketing.
change it back to the old version
by angelbean32 on 2020/03/10 19:32
this new update is terrible theres no point for me to have it in my phone when the set up is terrible. might as well carry my laptop and use my hotspot
Low quality
by MoonShimmer0 on 2020/03/10 17:51
These last updates ruined the quality when saving (in all formats). Extremely low resolution now. Used to be great. Now Worthless. Response to Developer: The suggested solutions do not work. And this most recent update has removed the functionality of hieroglyphics showing up in the saved image. Only getting blurry images when saving, in all formats. The updates are just making the app worse.
This app for the iPad is trash
by megan_allisonx33 on 2020/03/10 15:19
I love using Canva on the computer. On my phone or iPad I absolutely hate it. You tap to edit one thing and it takes you to another. It won’t allow you to make certain edits, my work sometimes gets deleted after I pressed save. Since I’m paying $15 a month for this service I expect it to work on all my devices. Get it together, Canva.
Updated version
by Caitewcu on 2020/03/10 13:22
They’re constantly working to make canva better and better! I wish I could move between screens without canva restarting completely
Where is the update?
by Queen Sowell on 2020/03/10 10:40
I’m really enjoying this App. The only issue is every time I log into the Canva App I am told I need to update. I click the update button that pops up on screen and it takes me here to this page where it says “OPEN” and not “UPDATE”. If there is really an update, how will I know?
Great on the computer, unbelievably frustrating on a cell phone
by M.Laners on 2020/03/10 06:47
It’s the same thing on the app as the computer in a functional sense, but having to use your finger to tap layers is a nightmare. Most of the time, it just insists that you want whatever layer it seems to select for, even if it’s on the other side of the image. Some layers can’t even be accessed unless you move every other layer as far from it as possible, then place it, then suffer the nightmare of trying to put it all back together again. Just spent 45 minutes trying to get 5 different layers to place correctly then just gave up. This shouldn’t be the kind of app a high quality company like canva puts out. I’ll stick to my computer.
Never actually works
by JennaRvmpd on 2020/03/10 04:20
This app would be a lifesaver if it ever actually worked. Constantly glitching, it’s a nightmare. The website works great. This app is useless.
0/10. Do NOT recommend.
by AmBrCa on 2020/03/10 01:40
This app is extremely frustrating to use, from its buffering and being unable to edit or change anything with ease. This app is garbage.
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.
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!
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&amp;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!!
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.
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.
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&#39;t prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
New 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
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!
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 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!
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&#39;t use my laptop for some reason I&#39;m not getting that same experience on my phone. It&#39;s a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it&#39;s harder for me to find them and control, I can&#39;t change the sizes of my pictures and I can&#39;t copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it&#39;s stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don&#39;t like the size or something else I can&#39;t add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can&#39;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&#39;t get them back again :( other than that I&#39;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!
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! 🤗
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Canva is the shiiiiizzzz
by Vitamin Patch on 2018/11/30 16:48
Seriously this has to be one of my favorite programs to use and the fact that you can do sooooo much with the free version alone is incredible and I had zero apprehension about buying the service bc this company is beyond generous! From the free version, to the customer support, I have had the BEST experience and have introduced a dozen other people to this program who also love it! Super easy to use and both desktop, and app versions are great! (Few bugs in the app, but overall good stuff) You won’t be disappointed unless you are just a miserable human who enjoys finding fault in everything! If you don’t like Canva even the tiniest bit, you’re probably someone who also hates sunshine, cute baby animals, and doesn’t believe in climate change 😂
A Beautiful Mess
by PixyChic5.0 on 2019/12/09 17:38
First things first. Love the fact that Canva has beautifully made templates that are ready to use with your own text and images. Or, you can use their gorgeous free images (only non-pro version images). Makes creating graphics a little easier. Canvas creating abilities are unmatched, to my knowledge with the ability to create such a vast array of features and documents, like social media graphics, letterhead, book covers, calendars, posters, flyers, and beyond. Plus, it’s capable of resizing and adding and duplicating pages and graphics easily. I use Adobe Post, Over, and Desygner. They have lots of features, but don’t quite match up to Canva...yet. Unfortunately, Canva is quite unreliable in creating graphics quickly on IOS and desktop as it takes several taps or clicks when attempting to edit text or move other graphics around. So, it takes triple the time to create graphics due to this glitch or imperfection. Grrr. Canva developers seriously needs to resolve this issue soon. I’m paying for an app with amazing features but super glitchy, time-consuming and quite frustrating! Just one more thing. Although Canva has a slew of font choices, they are missing the ability to shape them, like curve, upward, slant, point, and more. Does anybody from Canva read the feedback?
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books &amp; reports. Canva (both desktop &amp; the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It&#39;s pretty easy to use &amp; create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded &amp; I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates &amp; have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Unusable now. I had to delete the app
by wantwinter on 2019/10/16 21:53
It’s been months since I used the app, so I was stunned to open it and find that literally nothing works anymore. I can’t delete text to add my own, the keyboard vanishes when you need to use it and it won’t come back, double-tapping to edit doesn’t work—even trying to delete does nothing. How did you blow up a good app so thoroughly? Even more, how did you test the results and say “Yeah this is ready for people to use?” I mean ??? I just hope there’s a decent alternative because Canva is worthless now. And please don’t reply with the usual “reach out so we can help”. The reviews have been awful since last November. If you cared about fixing it, you’d have done so by now. Just updated, app won’t take my password
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2019/09/30 10:49
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 over lap, 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.
Keeps closing out design
by JGKG21 on 2018/11/29 12:36
Love love love the app. Canva is awesome and I enjoyed it for a year or two now. But now it keeps giving me an error message every time I place my logo in a design. It states “cannot save design, close designer and open it back up.” This is really tragic because I really like this app. If I paste to many words it freezes and then shuts me out. But I would also like to make a suggestion. I use Canva for my business, it would be sooooooo awesome if I could create a Facebook post and then convert the design to a Instagram post without having to start completely from scratch. Or convert the design to another type of layout because I post across different media and having to create the same design 5 times is so time consuming. But I love the app😁
Too finnicky
by FallFlower24 on 2020/01/12 19:10
I LOVE the canva website. I use it all the time. However this app is horrible. I can only use it vertical, which wastes screen space. Zooming in is not as easy as it sounds. The app should flip to horizontal mode when a user moves their phone. The app does not save pictures in designs. I closed a design to come back and finish and the picture was gone. Twice! Also, I duplicated a design to change the picture and the app would not let me move, remove, replace, or trash the picture in that design. This particular design I did on the website then went into the app to duplicate and change. Text editing is tedious and sensitive. I tried for several minutes to make a short, 2 line sentence to one. The app kept undoing my work. Overall the app is so sensitive that when trying to edit or move one piece (text/picture) it messes with the other pieces in the background instead. It’s a big time waster. I hope canva takes this into account and makes the app better.
Canva for Mobile
by ChoosingGrace on 2019/07/27 17:47
I have been using Canva on desktop for a while now and enjoyed it. I recently downloaded the app and have been using it and overall my experience has been good and without many issues. However sometimes my download of Instagram story pictures failed to download from the main photo gallery. Though I’ve found that this can be remedied by clicking on the download button on the editing page. I would also like to have the ability to consolidate and separate pictures as well as recombine or combine them like I can on desktop. Their app seems to allow me to only separate photos from being combined, however, I could just be unaware of where that feature is in the app. Overall, I am enjoying my time using the app and I have no complaints to speak of.
Just sick over the newest update
by G.Parish on 2018/11/24 06:57
I just used the app on my iPad this morning and created a couple wonderful easy ads. Then I updated to the latest update. What a shock when I went to Canva to create a quick image a few minutes ago and the whole thing was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! Now I cannot use it in landscape mode, it is stuck in portrait, and my usual pictures I had in my account (not on my camera roll, but downloaded ones) are no longer there. The whole thing is a lot harder to use. The whole user interface seems to have a lot more hoops to jump through. Did someone think this would be be better? I love Canva, and use it all the time on both my desktop computer and the iPad. Now I guess I can’t use it on the iPad anymore. This change was a BAD idea. I’m glad I found out before I upgraded to Canva for Work. I was going to do that this week, but now I’m not even sure I’ll stick with Canva. I am one unhappy user. Please, please, please can we have it back how it was before?
Good app but buggy sometimes
by Brian8253 on 2019/10/09 19:08
I’ve experienced good things and bad things on this app but I will still give it a 5 star because I’m sure it’s just some bugs. I’ll be in the middle of creating an Instagram post and the page gets stuck sometimes scrolled down. When I go to fix this or refresh the app it deleted my work 🤦🏼‍♂️ slightly upset but nothing to freak about. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my connection to the internet or what but just something I thought I would give as some feedback to the developers. I’m using the new IPhone 11 so that may have something to do with it but other then the small bugs and screen getting stuck in some spots it’s a great app!!! Definitely considering going premium!
Canva is great, but there’s a few minor glitches
by chin-yi_kong on 2019/06/07 18:07
I love canva so, so much. All the templates and images and illustrations are so cute. Although i’m fairly new to canva, there are some things that i’ve done before that it won’t let me do now. For example, i put a polaroid frame onto my card. Then, i tried to put a picture in it. I’ve done this so many times before, but now it won’t let me. The picture just sits on top of the frame instead of actually going in it. This isn’t a major problem, but it is one that should be fixed. Maybe i’m just doing it wrong, but i’ve done it before. I don’t really understand why it’s not working now. Other than this small glitch, Canva is such a fun app to make collages and things like that. I love it so much!
Great- but only to a point
by ig:abiidavyy on 2019/10/22 05:39
I’ve been using Canva for years, but recently the app has become glitchy and overall unreliable. Where I used to be able to depend on Canva to create social media posts via my iPhone, I’m now jumping between other graphic design apps to nail consistency. Here are my issues (with a fully updated version!): 1. It doesn’t save my design completely. While it will show completely in the creator/app, it doesn’t save the full design (I. E.: removing an entire text box or even cutting ½ of one off) to my photos. This is INCREDIBLY frustrating, and the only semi-solve I’ve found is to copy the entire design into a new design (“copy of...”), make a change, and then download it. But doing this after every minor change is suuuuper tedious. 2. The interface makes it hard to select lines, shapes, and other illustrations without selecting the background layer. 3. Where’s the lock layer button on mobile? Seriously, bring it back! 4. Canva, you’re killing me with the premium stuff. Seriously. Just get it out of my way if I’m on a free account! I’ll pay for photoshop, but I’m not paying for Canva. Canva has been a good mobile alternative to photoshop for me for many years, however, I’m over the inconsistency and time it takes to get simple things done.
Worst App Ever
by jazzy1224 on 2019/01/25 15:15
First, I’ll say that the web based version is amazing! What an absolute abomination the IPad and IPhone apps are. First, what the heck is up with all the crazy add-ons and purchases, which isn’t even available on the web. The images pro subscription, the canva for work subscription, the image packs? Absolute obnoxious! Piece of advice, be consistent! Offer simple pricing regardless of whether you are using it on the web or on an IPad. This crazy pricing doesn’t work. Second, the interface...where do I start! The web version is AMAZING! Easy to find things, the editing is fantastic! What happened on the iPhone and IPad? Did you guys design it while drunk? It’s terrible. Resizing text is a joke! Finding images is incredibly hard. You have all these little icons and stuff, crowns, premium, pay for — again way too complicated! Simplify..Honestly, just take the web version and make it into an IPad and IPhone app. Seriously, do yourselves a favor. You have a great concept.
It’s free so why not try it? ❤️
by AtotheUtotheGtotheSTD on 2020/01/15 01:39
I have used this for about two years now and have fallen in love with it. When I first began writing wattpad I couldn’t find a website to make my covers and such. Well... I sort of did but you were obligated to pay for it and I could afford it but didn’t want to. And after months of searching on the verge of giving up I found this website. I self taught myself how to use it. Not only can you make book covers but channel art, posters and more! Now that’s just awesome. When I made my first book cover I cried, literally! I was so happy and excited. And the great thing is I can use it on my way to school which is on my phone or on my laptop and that’s just great! Totally would recommend, love you Canva 😊💕
Love the desktop version, but app isn’t the best
by AngGren on 2019/10/08 14:02
I pay for the pro version and LOVE IT - on the desktop version anyway....the app is always offering a trial 14 days for the pro version, but I’m already paying for it....?Do I need to pay twice to be able to access ALL of the pro features within the app (ie. saved brand fonts)?? The app is incredibly glitchy when downloading finished projects. The text and shape of pictures is sometimes distorted and/or cut off. Also, there are more glitches when using both the app and the desktop version on the same project. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes I create something quickly on my phone to get the project started, but want to finish on the desktop version, and this can sometimes be an issue. I highly recommend Canva to everyone I know, however I always advise using it on their computer first, as the app can be off putting.
Great for all of my projects!
by Loveliest 13 on 2018/09/21 00:21
Love LOVE this app! I use this all the time!!!But I HATE HATE HATE the new interface/layout I saw on there today!!!!! It was sooooo clear, easy to navigate and understand before, and I couldn’t have loved an app more. Today, I am soooo bummed about the changes!!!! Please bring the older interface back!!!! I was in love 😍 and now my heart is broken 💔 please please please from someone who uses this all the time- literally almost daily- I feel lost now, the categories don’t stand out for my needs at a glance, the pics for each category don’t catch my eye now and entice me to create something... anything!! And I t’s more confusing 😢😢😢 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻please... the layout that you have on the App Store this minute is how I love it! 🙏🏻😢🙏🏻😢✨✨✨ please bring the old layout back
yee haw !!!🤠
by darksbane7 on 2018/09/07 13:08
ive used a plethora of photo editing apps, and have not met one that works like this. ive seen a few that might look like they compare but they all cost money, so finding an app with as many great features and usages as canvas provides without having to spend a dime is incredible. the ads on here are not annoying what so ever so thats a big plus. everything is really easy and simple, and you come out with great high quality work. i highly suggest this app for everyone, especially towards people who havent found their picture perfect photo editor. i searched for over four years before finding canvas and im really glad to say i can end that search now. as a user i definitely want to help improve and bring more people to this app, this is the type of app you genuinely get excited about and want to share with others who have the same hobbies. i would however suggest making the undo/redo button more apparent, it doesnt stand out really well and it looks like there is no redo button if you accidentally click undo. at the end of the day i love this app and im extremely pleased with what has been produced 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍

Really love this but...
by AmaB7 on 2020/04/03 06:16
There are soooo many thing to love about this app, but the two things that are keeping this from being a 5 star rating are: 1 - when I try to save 1 post out of a multi post project, ALL of the posts (up to 30) are default selected and I have then uncheck each one but the ONE I want...can we get a “select/deselect all” option on the mobile app? 2 - whenever I download a post from the mobile app, it saves as a though the picture is in a grid so I ultimately have to crop the picture from my phones photo gallery...it’s tedious and SUPER annoying. Thought these would be fixed with the recent update but no dice.
Amazing
by ccat554 on 2020/04/03 03:44
Can I just THANK the creators of this App. Thank you. I have a blog and I constantly need images/graphics. Canva makes it so much easier to create captivating posts. Thank you so much. I have been using it for a few years now and I’ve had no issues. 10/10 recommend!!!!

Great concept - bad app
by starcatdog on 2020/03/31 16:17
This app is so frustrating! It makes working with it absolutely maddening. It crashes. It glitches. It’s practically impossible to click on anything. Awful awful awful. Please fix this.
Too smart for its own good

I downloaded the app. Though I live in China I’m not Chinese and it keeps downloading in Chinese not even giving me the option of English. 😩🤦🏾‍♀️
Blurry pictures

First day, but loving it so far
by Madkatsuperwoman on 2020/03/29 11:42
Heard many great things about this app. Loving it so far, however it is very finicky. It freezes up and now I can’t see what I am typing. Didn’t have this issue until after I downloaded this app.
Too many glitches
by Bogroup on 2020/03/29 04:18
Canva is usually a wonderful app that is perfect for all my business needs. The IOS app is NOT good. Every once in a while it will just close by itself or will freeze the screen and then close itself. Sometimes when you look at all your projects it shows the original stock photo and template instead of what you added. By the way my phone isn’t old it’s an iPhone 7 every other app works great. I’ll be giving it another chance soon.
Nothing like the desktop app
by Muppeto on 2020/03/29 04:13
This iPad version of Canva is so simplistic that it makes it complicated. Everything on the desktop app is just so much better in every way. I’m not sure why, but the screenshots of the iPad app in the App Store differ vastly from what the app actually looks like. The screenshots look exactly like the desktop app does, and I was excited to see this when I first downloaded the iPad app. But after using it, everything is in a different place and most options are hidden. The way the app appears in the screenshots is how it should still be, in my opinion. I’ve been using Canva for years and I enjoy the desktop app very much, however I wanted to start using the iPad app when I go on trips or work from home, but it’s so unnecessarily different that I don’t think I’ll be using it, unfortunately, unless is gets changed.
Keeps crashing
by Jasmine2729 on 2020/03/28 03:04
You would think that after paying for the monthly services this app wouldn&#39;t have any issues, however when trying to resize a post I keep getting an error message ”There’s a problem resizing” check you Internet connection. So annoying especially since I&#39;m using my home wifi 📶 service.

Hard to Use
by dataskatt on 2020/03/26 22:56
This program is very hard to use unless you start with a blank canvas. Editing existing designs is very hard and clunky. Simply changing font size is a nightmare. Update: I received developer feedback on this review which didn’t even relate to what I said. I went back and gave the app another shot. I stand by what I said. This app is unbearably hard to use. The work flow is very cumbersome. I am a graphic designer. I wanted something simple to design a quick Instagram post, etc. Nothing fancy. This app doesn’t deliver. I have no idea how it’s so highly rated.
Annoying
by cmd731 on 2020/03/26 16:30
I wish the app was as functional as the desktop version. It’s frustrating to maneuver and difficult to edit designs.
Lost Designs
by Beloved Prissy on 2020/03/26 12:22
I must say that I love this app but, I’ve recently went to the app to check my designs and sadly to say they are no longer there. All of my hard work I can’t seem to find it. I’ve tried to update the app, but to no avail I’ve been unsuccessful in finding my work.
Disappointing

This app is super awesome. However I have found that it is SLOW on ALL of my devices, new and old. It lags when doing everything. Great app but very frustrating to use Editing my review because I feel the response team gave me a generic copy paste reply telling me to simply restart the app. Whether you have 0 or 100 apps running, restart or not, the app is slow.

I want to love it
by Heathfeath718 on 2020/03/23 23:51
It has a lot of good options and overall is relatively user friendly. But God forbid you put a shape or little line in and then want to move it. I can never get it to select again, so you’re just stuck wherever you accidentally put it. Also freaks out sometimes when I try and adjust background images. More frustrating than it’s worth.
Simple
by Morgiilovedoll on 2020/03/23 19:16
Canva is simple and easy to navigate. Helps for business or even sharing on social media!💓
I agree with Blogbarger’s review
by A Copywriter on 2020/03/23 19:07
It’s 2020 and the Canva app still has those time-wasting quirks. Either the production team did not listen to Blogbarger, or they were unable to fix the bugs. Either way, it takes two stars off a product that would otherwise get five.
Excelente, pero...
by Joshuad Moises on 2020/03/23 17:49
La app es excelente. La uso muy seguido y es mi herramienta principal para crear mis libros digitales por medio de documentos A4 y luego exportarlos a PDF. Aunque la página web (obviamente) sea más completa y productiva, la app móvil ayuda.
Bored at Work
by Stutabaegaen on 2020/03/23 10:50
Well I probably gave it five stars cause it’s newer/fresher, I used Poster My Wall a lot and thought, “Ya know I’m getting bored with this, maybe I should try something a little more fresher. So I found Canva and I love it, now I have to write lyrics that fit the cover, I think a collaboration project is in the works!!!
✨Book Covers!✨
by ✨Shadowfax✨ on 2020/03/23 00:38
As a freelance writer whose lack of graphic design skills often outweighed the desire to make book covers, I must say that Canva was incredibly helpful. Every other writer I knew recommended it after displaying dazzling covers they had made themselves, so I gave it a shot. Despite offering a monthly subscription fee for the “full version”, Canva still provides so much creative freedom with the free version. The absence of an eraser tool, however, frustrates me. That’s my only complaint; the app is fabulous.

Saving problem
by Zeina Bm on 2020/03/20 23:47
First of all i want to thank you for this amazing app Second please i need your urgently, i always used to edit and create stuff om canvas but for the first time i’m facing a huge problem. I’ve been trying to fix a picture for 4 hours but whenever i come to save it, it’s saving differently. The background i want it transparent, once i save it, it goes back to its normal appearance i tried 10 times to re-do it but the problem is still the same when it comes to saving.

All I have to say is this app is so amazing. But I do wish more things were for free.
I’d rather use the web version than the app.
by CSymone on 2020/03/20 11:36
The app had A LOT of glitches. I find it easier to edit my projects on the website. I use the canva app on my iPad and my iPhone and I even tried paying for the monthly subscription in order to have a smooth editing process. I canceled my subscription and I just work from the web browser. I might delete my apps because they are useless for me.

For an app that I’m paying $12 monthly for, I’d expect A LOT less problems. The graphics I am creating aren’t saving as they appear in the app, they look completely different.
Mobile Crash
by theNobleDrunkard on 2020/03/19 15:21
The app usually works well - as of the last 48 hours the mobile app can’t handle simple text edits and immediately crashes when attempting to do so.
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.
Glitchy and sensitive.
by sanjudewfvcwec on 2020/03/18 21:19
This app does not makeup for what it lacks with what it is. It is IMPOSSIBLE to choose where you want to type and I find it often glitching a deleting my wok. I like the templates they have and they come in handy when I have a project to do but it tales forever to get the app to work with you. It is extremely sensitive and cannot track your finger. I do not recommend this app unless you absolutely have to use it. I would say use it as a place for ideas and templates but use PicCollage, google, or anything else to make an actually project.
App is not optimized well for iPhone
by Boricua93 on 2020/03/18 18:07
App user interface makes it way too difficult to edit text without moving things halfway across the picture. I hate using it on the iPhone. Desktop version is awesome but iPhone (I have a Xs) is just too small to use it without frustrations. Maybe if it had a landscape mode that may help.
Major problems need to be fixed.
by SG15327 on 2020/03/18 16:05
I use Canva every single day for my marketing class, so I decided to download the app thinking it would be much easier to use with my IPad. I was very wrong. It refuses to recognize any edits that I try to make, and it just won’t let me edit some text boxes. I am very disappointed and frustrated.
Love it but lots of problems
by Nikolatx on 2020/03/18 01:55
Canva is amazing but this app has issues. Whwn making designs, the apps saves them completly different (text usually moved). Another thing i noticed is that you can’t change gradient colors on shapes. And in multiple pages files you can’t save only one page. Hope you can fix this 😊
Great App, Just Not on the iPad Pro.
by KaylaBee12 on 2020/03/17 23:10
I’m a small business over and I use Canva for all of my graphics. I also happen to run a majority of my business from my iPad Pro. I don’t know what the heck it is about Canva on the iPad Pro, but the app does not respond well to my touch. I go to edit a text at the bottom of my graphic but it selects something at the top of the page instead. When I publish a graphic, I have to double check it before I post it on my business because the lines look one way in the app but then look totally different in the saved image. PLEASE, Canva, FIX THIS! I don’t want to have to cancel my subscription!
UNAUTHORIZED charges, HORRIBLE customer service
by Cassaunova on 2020/03/17 22:19
My experience with this company has been AWFUL. I very rarely write reviews, but this is important and needs to be shared. If nothing else, I hope this will either get their attention enough to solve the issue, or save someone else the headache of dealing with this. I started a 1 month trial subscription on November 18th of last year. I cancelled on December 16th, two days before it ended. On December 17th, I had a charge on my bank account from Canva. I immediately contacted them (which is extremely difficult and not user friendly at all), and received an email back stating I was still on the trial period. There was no explanation given as to why I was charged, but they did state that they would NOT be able to refund me, and that I would have to take it up with Apple. However, since I had done my part in cancelling the subscription within the required time frame, Apple couldn’t do anything either. I then called my bank to have the charge reversed. After explaining the situation, they kindly reversed the charge. The next month, January, it happened again. I repeat the same steps from the previous month; I email Canva, call my bank, and have the charge reversed. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY?! YEP. SAME THING. I reach out YET AGAIN, and this time they basically say “OOPS, it *was* on a pro-subscription and that’s why I’m being charged. But oh, not to worry, they’re going to *cancel it immediately* and issue me $45 worth of Canva credits!” Not a refund, nope, just credits to use with their company. FUMING, I call my bank again. This time, since it has now happened THREE TIMES, they are able to put a stop payment on the company. And thank goodness they did, because GUESS WHAT JUST HAPPENED TODAY. Luckily with the stop payment activated, my card wasn’t charged. Instead, I got an email from Canva saying “Action required - please update your payment details. Please log in and update your credit or debit card details so we can process payment for your Canva Pro subscription.” I DON’T HAVE A PRO SUBSCRIPTION!!! Canva, if you are reading this, just last month, you ASSURED me that it would be cancelled immediately and everything would be sorted out, yet HERE WE ARE AND YOU ARE STILL ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE ME!! It’s been FOUR MONTHS of this. Everyone please be mindful and proactive of this, or better yet, FIND A DIFFERENT APP. *Scroll through the one star reviews and you will see others who this has also happened to. BEWARE!
Exasperating
by We_Koo on 2020/03/17 18:58
I am using the Canva app on an iPhone 8+. My fingers are not big at all, but I often encounter trouble with layers and editing them. I’ll tap on one piece of text and another element that is no where near it will be become selected. I am pretty good with electronics and must say that it should not be this hard. Canva on a computer or laptop works well, but this app experience has yet to benefit me.
Worst design app ever!
by pehjs on 2020/03/17 16:38
Omg I was working on a presentation and then all of a sudden, my debit disappear! Yeah it has cool layouts, but Omg, this is the worst design app ever! I wouldn’t use it anymore, I hate this app so much I would give it no stars. I hate this app because it deleted everything!
Thank you

Canva....Made life easy
Has potential
by idchef27 on 2020/03/17 04:20
So, I’ve been using this app for work for social media posts, menu design and so on. This app has potential to be really good, but at least on iPhone 6 has a lot of bugs. Would give five stars if hours of my work weren’t ruined because it won’t stay zoomed in...when you tap to edit while zoomed in it zooms out. Try to select an area to edit, it selects a totally different part of the project. Try to move things and it moves or erases something else. Would be really simple if it worked as it was designed, but the constant re editing makes things impossible. Try to edit and it screws up sometime else. Fix the bugs I’ll give five stars.
Incredibly frustrating!
by c_holloway on 2020/03/17 01:32
I subscribed to the pro version to try and remove backgrounds from some pictures. I cannot figure out how to actually do this! I’ve even googled and YouTubed how to. Everything says to use the editing toolbar, but where is the flippin editing toolbar?!? The only options it gives 3 options and “effects” is not one of them. Not worth paying for at all.
Great app; one thing...
by #helpful_reviewer on 2020/03/16 23:26
This app is great. It had what I was looking for and more. The templates are large in variety, but as far as the images, a lot of the best ones are not available unless you go pro, or purchase them. Nonetheless, you can still get done what you want to accomplish. Great job Canva! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
The App is hard to use
by Alanah.Ysabel on 2020/03/16 19:55
I love Canva when using my laptop. It’s amazing. However, the app is so hard to use. I need to change one sentence on my resume, and the app won’t let me select the right field and edit it. I’ve been sitting on my phone for over an hour trying to fix one sentence!
PNG and purchasing issues
by eroticka on 2020/03/16 08:51
I had the app about two months. My only issues are I’m unable to add png images with transparent backgrounds. They automatically convert to jpeg. Also when I make purchases on certain images, they allow me to change the color thru the app but once I save it , the edits do not show
Constant log in problems
by mnester8 on 2020/03/15 23:16
I have redownloaded and deleted the app 5 times now because of log in issues. Once in the app is great but always have problems with log in for some reason
Gem! Easy to use.

Not for IPad
by Smurfml on 2020/03/15 21:46
This App is actually amazing, but not for IPads. It is almost impossible to make any changes without going crazy. With the touchscreen it is VERY difficult to find the exact point to be able to change the writing, move the shapes or anything else. Please, do something to fix it!

We need you to work Especially during COVID-19
by CerebralEnt on 2020/03/15 13:50
I don&#39;t know what going on with Canva. The app is glitchy and it won&#39;t respond to actions such as editing texts. Right now faulty apps is the last thing freelancers need while social distancing. Please fix these so we can do our work, whatever remains of it.
Designer
by @Alldayboogie on IG on 2020/03/15 02:24
Probably the best design tool out there. Intuitive. Decisive. And just an all around multi-purpose creative tool you can pick up for just about any project you have. Promise you, you will not regret it.
Awesome tool

Went from OK to Total Failure
by Geo_ on 2020/03/14 14:23
The app Went from being OK to being a Total Failure. I can no longer use it on an iPad Pro. It goes from one error or obstacle to another. I finally gave up and deleted it. Both Over and Bazzart are better anyway.
Used to love it
by Thephoenixlights on 2020/03/14 05:39
Now every time I try to add an image, it shows an uncropped version of the image, or if I get it to load the cropped version, it’s cut off at places I didn’t crop it. Very frustrating. This only started happening recently, so I don’t know if it’s a bad update or what.
Great tool
by DLaniceJackson on 2020/03/14 04:12
The flexibility and variety of Canva is really what makes it such a fun tool and app to use. I can take my designs anywhere with me and not worry about anything getting lost. If I leave something unfinished, I just come back to it whenever I’m ready and the rough draft will still be there. I really love it !
It takes my money !
by brianaaaa02 on 2020/03/14 03:19

Enjoyable but could be better.
by ashleybanksx on 2020/03/14 02:40
I really enjoy the app and it gets the job done for the basics (templates, creating images, etc). It would be 5 stars if it had the same premium features as the web version. The custom fonts, all of the design &amp; effect options. The transparent backgrounds. That would make the app 5 stars so that I’m not going from Canva, to a font app, to a filter app.

by SillyLiLRoundThings on 2020/03/13 23:13
What a great app, I love love love this. I will say, however I miss being able to use it on my iPad . You folks changed it a bit a while back and now I can only use it on my desktop. If it was more user friendly on my iPad I would buy the upgraded version. But bottom line this is great and I love it, I am not a tech savvy person at all, and I’m able to use it just fine...on my desktop -that is :)

Deleted all my work & slow
by deleted all my work on 2020/03/13 03:05
I went to the Canva with high hopes but I was sorely disappointed. I had an assignment to finish and I spent so long perfecting the slides only for it to crash on me and delete all of my work. Not to mention when I tried to type it, it could not keep up. Everything was fine up until I had to type the portions of the slides. I spent so long on each slides and waited for it to load only for the screen to go blank and when it finally loaded on the “my projects” page (and that page did not show any of my other projects from the past either) and when it finally appeared, only the title page loaded, all of my slides were gone! What if I had finished and paid the $15 for the canva photos only for all my work to disappear.

I’ve been using this app for 3 days and I’ve had trouble every day trying to get text boxes and editing them.
Problem
by AkiraPatten on 2020/03/12 05:36
The app is having problems. Usually love to use but every time I type anything, it won’t allow me to move or edit anything else unless I delete that one thing and then re-do it. The saved edit/photo also comes out blurred.
Good

Love & hate relationship
by abbs;) on 2020/03/11 22:51
Canva is super awesome at times. It has cute stickers, templates, and fonts but sometimes when I save my projects things will be moved and colors will be changed. It’s super frustrating when you work on a time sensitive project and then you have to restart because no colors have saved and fonts or elements have moved. I don’t know if this is a bug or something, but I’d love for it to get fixed because this app could be fantastic.
Amazing app
by top tier usa on 2020/03/11 19:49
I love this app. So easy to use. Many options to choose from to individualize your own so easy to use and really allows me to be creative graphic.
Trash

its trash haha
Worst App Ever
by smooshedpotato on 2020/03/11 15:48
This app is almost impossible to use. You cannot change the test boxes easily, the format of the pre made stencils cannot be changed. I do not recommend this app for creating posters, infographics, etc.
More bugs than useful features
by .:|ally|:. on 2020/03/11 04:17
Want to change the size of the photo against a background? Canva will zoom in on the photo instead Want to change font color? Canva will load at the pace of dialup from the 90s This app has too many bugs and definitely wasn’t designed by people who actually would use it: people who do social media marketing.
change it back to the old version
by angelbean32 on 2020/03/10 19:32
this new update is terrible theres no point for me to have it in my phone when the set up is terrible. might as well carry my laptop and use my hotspot
Low quality
by MoonShimmer0 on 2020/03/10 17:51
These last updates ruined the quality when saving (in all formats). Extremely low resolution now. Used to be great. Now Worthless. Response to Developer: The suggested solutions do not work. And this most recent update has removed the functionality of hieroglyphics showing up in the saved image. Only getting blurry images when saving, in all formats. The updates are just making the app worse.
This app for the iPad is trash
by megan_allisonx33 on 2020/03/10 15:19
I love using Canva on the computer. On my phone or iPad I absolutely hate it. You tap to edit one thing and it takes you to another. It won’t allow you to make certain edits, my work sometimes gets deleted after I pressed save. Since I’m paying $15 a month for this service I expect it to work on all my devices. Get it together, Canva.
Updated version
by Caitewcu on 2020/03/10 13:22
They’re constantly working to make canva better and better! I wish I could move between screens without canva restarting completely
Where is the update?
by Queen Sowell on 2020/03/10 10:40
I’m really enjoying this App. The only issue is every time I log into the Canva App I am told I need to update. I click the update button that pops up on screen and it takes me here to this page where it says “OPEN” and not “UPDATE”. If there is really an update, how will I know?
Great on the computer, unbelievably frustrating on a cell phone
by M.Laners on 2020/03/10 06:47
It’s the same thing on the app as the computer in a functional sense, but having to use your finger to tap layers is a nightmare. Most of the time, it just insists that you want whatever layer it seems to select for, even if it’s on the other side of the image. Some layers can’t even be accessed unless you move every other layer as far from it as possible, then place it, then suffer the nightmare of trying to put it all back together again. Just spent 45 minutes trying to get 5 different layers to place correctly then just gave up. This shouldn’t be the kind of app a high quality company like canva puts out. I’ll stick to my computer.
Never actually works
by JennaRvmpd on 2020/03/10 04:20
This app would be a lifesaver if it ever actually worked. Constantly glitching, it’s a nightmare. The website works great. This app is useless.
0/10. Do NOT recommend.
by AmBrCa on 2020/03/10 01:40
This app is extremely frustrating to use, from its buffering and being unable to edit or change anything with ease. This app is garbage.
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.
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!
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&amp;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!!
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.
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.
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&#39;t prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
New 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
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!
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 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!
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&#39;t use my laptop for some reason I&#39;m not getting that same experience on my phone. It&#39;s a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it&#39;s harder for me to find them and control, I can&#39;t change the sizes of my pictures and I can&#39;t copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it&#39;s stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don&#39;t like the size or something else I can&#39;t add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can&#39;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&#39;t get them back again :( other than that I&#39;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!
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! 🤗
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Canva is the shiiiiizzzz
by Vitamin Patch on 2018/11/30 16:48
Seriously this has to be one of my favorite programs to use and the fact that you can do sooooo much with the free version alone is incredible and I had zero apprehension about buying the service bc this company is beyond generous! From the free version, to the customer support, I have had the BEST experience and have introduced a dozen other people to this program who also love it! Super easy to use and both desktop, and app versions are great! (Few bugs in the app, but overall good stuff) You won’t be disappointed unless you are just a miserable human who enjoys finding fault in everything! If you don’t like Canva even the tiniest bit, you’re probably someone who also hates sunshine, cute baby animals, and doesn’t believe in climate change 😂
A Beautiful Mess
by PixyChic5.0 on 2019/12/09 17:38
First things first. Love the fact that Canva has beautifully made templates that are ready to use with your own text and images. Or, you can use their gorgeous free images (only non-pro version images). Makes creating graphics a little easier. Canvas creating abilities are unmatched, to my knowledge with the ability to create such a vast array of features and documents, like social media graphics, letterhead, book covers, calendars, posters, flyers, and beyond. Plus, it’s capable of resizing and adding and duplicating pages and graphics easily. I use Adobe Post, Over, and Desygner. They have lots of features, but don’t quite match up to Canva...yet. Unfortunately, Canva is quite unreliable in creating graphics quickly on IOS and desktop as it takes several taps or clicks when attempting to edit text or move other graphics around. So, it takes triple the time to create graphics due to this glitch or imperfection. Grrr. Canva developers seriously needs to resolve this issue soon. I’m paying for an app with amazing features but super glitchy, time-consuming and quite frustrating! Just one more thing. Although Canva has a slew of font choices, they are missing the ability to shape them, like curve, upward, slant, point, and more. Does anybody from Canva read the feedback?
I use this for everything I need! Great for on the go too!
by SemsThoughts on 2019/11/27 20:04
Working within a volunteer position at an association I have tried pretty much every tool out there to help design social media posts, to activity books &amp; reports. Canva (both desktop &amp; the app), have really been a life saver on multiple fronts. It&#39;s pretty easy to use &amp; create anything in a pinch when it comes to creating quickly or on the go. Their library has expanded &amp; I love when they roll out new features like motion in Instagram stories. I truly can not recommend it enough. On a personal note, I have used their resume templates &amp; have received great feedback from employers to help give me a boost in career selections for jobs. I really do have Canva to thank for my employment! You helped me nail my job :)
Unusable now. I had to delete the app
by wantwinter on 2019/10/16 21:53
It’s been months since I used the app, so I was stunned to open it and find that literally nothing works anymore. I can’t delete text to add my own, the keyboard vanishes when you need to use it and it won’t come back, double-tapping to edit doesn’t work—even trying to delete does nothing. How did you blow up a good app so thoroughly? Even more, how did you test the results and say “Yeah this is ready for people to use?” I mean ??? I just hope there’s a decent alternative because Canva is worthless now. And please don’t reply with the usual “reach out so we can help”. The reviews have been awful since last November. If you cared about fixing it, you’d have done so by now. Just updated, app won’t take my password
Love this app but a few frustrating glitches
by aengman87 on 2019/09/30 10:49
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 over lap, 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.
Keeps closing out design
by JGKG21 on 2018/11/29 12:36
Love love love the app. Canva is awesome and I enjoyed it for a year or two now. But now it keeps giving me an error message every time I place my logo in a design. It states “cannot save design, close designer and open it back up.” This is really tragic because I really like this app. If I paste to many words it freezes and then shuts me out. But I would also like to make a suggestion. I use Canva for my business, it would be sooooooo awesome if I could create a Facebook post and then convert the design to a Instagram post without having to start completely from scratch. Or convert the design to another type of layout because I post across different media and having to create the same design 5 times is so time consuming. But I love the app😁
Too finnicky
by FallFlower24 on 2020/01/12 19:10
I LOVE the canva website. I use it all the time. However this app is horrible. I can only use it vertical, which wastes screen space. Zooming in is not as easy as it sounds. The app should flip to horizontal mode when a user moves their phone. The app does not save pictures in designs. I closed a design to come back and finish and the picture was gone. Twice! Also, I duplicated a design to change the picture and the app would not let me move, remove, replace, or trash the picture in that design. This particular design I did on the website then went into the app to duplicate and change. Text editing is tedious and sensitive. I tried for several minutes to make a short, 2 line sentence to one. The app kept undoing my work. Overall the app is so sensitive that when trying to edit or move one piece (text/picture) it messes with the other pieces in the background instead. It’s a big time waster. I hope canva takes this into account and makes the app better.
Canva for Mobile
by ChoosingGrace on 2019/07/27 17:47
I have been using Canva on desktop for a while now and enjoyed it. I recently downloaded the app and have been using it and overall my experience has been good and without many issues. However sometimes my download of Instagram story pictures failed to download from the main photo gallery. Though I’ve found that this can be remedied by clicking on the download button on the editing page. I would also like to have the ability to consolidate and separate pictures as well as recombine or combine them like I can on desktop. Their app seems to allow me to only separate photos from being combined, however, I could just be unaware of where that feature is in the app. Overall, I am enjoying my time using the app and I have no complaints to speak of.
Just sick over the newest update
by G.Parish on 2018/11/24 06:57
I just used the app on my iPad this morning and created a couple wonderful easy ads. Then I updated to the latest update. What a shock when I went to Canva to create a quick image a few minutes ago and the whole thing was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! Now I cannot use it in landscape mode, it is stuck in portrait, and my usual pictures I had in my account (not on my camera roll, but downloaded ones) are no longer there. The whole thing is a lot harder to use. The whole user interface seems to have a lot more hoops to jump through. Did someone think this would be be better? I love Canva, and use it all the time on both my desktop computer and the iPad. Now I guess I can’t use it on the iPad anymore. This change was a BAD idea. I’m glad I found out before I upgraded to Canva for Work. I was going to do that this week, but now I’m not even sure I’ll stick with Canva. I am one unhappy user. Please, please, please can we have it back how it was before?
Good app but buggy sometimes
by Brian8253 on 2019/10/09 19:08
I’ve experienced good things and bad things on this app but I will still give it a 5 star because I’m sure it’s just some bugs. I’ll be in the middle of creating an Instagram post and the page gets stuck sometimes scrolled down. When I go to fix this or refresh the app it deleted my work 🤦🏼‍♂️ slightly upset but nothing to freak about. I’m not sure if it has something to do with my connection to the internet or what but just something I thought I would give as some feedback to the developers. I’m using the new IPhone 11 so that may have something to do with it but other then the small bugs and screen getting stuck in some spots it’s a great app!!! Definitely considering going premium!
Canva is great, but there’s a few minor glitches
by chin-yi_kong on 2019/06/07 18:07
I love canva so, so much. All the templates and images and illustrations are so cute. Although i’m fairly new to canva, there are some things that i’ve done before that it won’t let me do now. For example, i put a polaroid frame onto my card. Then, i tried to put a picture in it. I’ve done this so many times before, but now it won’t let me. The picture just sits on top of the frame instead of actually going in it. This isn’t a major problem, but it is one that should be fixed. Maybe i’m just doing it wrong, but i’ve done it before. I don’t really understand why it’s not working now. Other than this small glitch, Canva is such a fun app to make collages and things like that. I love it so much!
Great- but only to a point
by ig:abiidavyy on 2019/10/22 05:39
I’ve been using Canva for years, but recently the app has become glitchy and overall unreliable. Where I used to be able to depend on Canva to create social media posts via my iPhone, I’m now jumping between other graphic design apps to nail consistency. Here are my issues (with a fully updated version!): 1. It doesn’t save my design completely. While it will show completely in the creator/app, it doesn’t save the full design (I. E.: removing an entire text box or even cutting ½ of one off) to my photos. This is INCREDIBLY frustrating, and the only semi-solve I’ve found is to copy the entire design into a new design (“copy of...”), make a change, and then download it. But doing this after every minor change is suuuuper tedious. 2. The interface makes it hard to select lines, shapes, and other illustrations without selecting the background layer. 3. Where’s the lock layer button on mobile? Seriously, bring it back! 4. Canva, you’re killing me with the premium stuff. Seriously. Just get it out of my way if I’m on a free account! I’ll pay for photoshop, but I’m not paying for Canva. Canva has been a good mobile alternative to photoshop for me for many years, however, I’m over the inconsistency and time it takes to get simple things done.
Worst App Ever
by jazzy1224 on 2019/01/25 15:15
First, I’ll say that the web based version is amazing! What an absolute abomination the IPad and IPhone apps are. First, what the heck is up with all the crazy add-ons and purchases, which isn’t even available on the web. The images pro subscription, the canva for work subscription, the image packs? Absolute obnoxious! Piece of advice, be consistent! Offer simple pricing regardless of whether you are using it on the web or on an IPad. This crazy pricing doesn’t work. Second, the interface...where do I start! The web version is AMAZING! Easy to find things, the editing is fantastic! What happened on the iPhone and IPad? Did you guys design it while drunk? It’s terrible. Resizing text is a joke! Finding images is incredibly hard. You have all these little icons and stuff, crowns, premium, pay for — again way too complicated! Simplify..Honestly, just take the web version and make it into an IPad and IPhone app. Seriously, do yourselves a favor. You have a great concept.
It’s free so why not try it? ❤️
by AtotheUtotheGtotheSTD on 2020/01/15 01:39
I have used this for about two years now and have fallen in love with it. When I first began writing wattpad I couldn’t find a website to make my covers and such. Well... I sort of did but you were obligated to pay for it and I could afford it but didn’t want to. And after months of searching on the verge of giving up I found this website. I self taught myself how to use it. Not only can you make book covers but channel art, posters and more! Now that’s just awesome. When I made my first book cover I cried, literally! I was so happy and excited. And the great thing is I can use it on my way to school which is on my phone or on my laptop and that’s just great! Totally would recommend, love you Canva 😊💕
Love the desktop version, but app isn’t the best
by AngGren on 2019/10/08 14:02
I pay for the pro version and LOVE IT - on the desktop version anyway....the app is always offering a trial 14 days for the pro version, but I’m already paying for it....?Do I need to pay twice to be able to access ALL of the pro features within the app (ie. saved brand fonts)?? The app is incredibly glitchy when downloading finished projects. The text and shape of pictures is sometimes distorted and/or cut off. Also, there are more glitches when using both the app and the desktop version on the same project. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes I create something quickly on my phone to get the project started, but want to finish on the desktop version, and this can sometimes be an issue. I highly recommend Canva to everyone I know, however I always advise using it on their computer first, as the app can be off putting.
Great for all of my projects!
by Loveliest 13 on 2018/09/21 00:21
Love LOVE this app! I use this all the time!!!But I HATE HATE HATE the new interface/layout I saw on there today!!!!! It was sooooo clear, easy to navigate and understand before, and I couldn’t have loved an app more. Today, I am soooo bummed about the changes!!!! Please bring the older interface back!!!! I was in love 😍 and now my heart is broken 💔 please please please from someone who uses this all the time- literally almost daily- I feel lost now, the categories don’t stand out for my needs at a glance, the pics for each category don’t catch my eye now and entice me to create something... anything!! And I t’s more confusing 😢😢😢 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻please... the layout that you have on the App Store this minute is how I love it! 🙏🏻😢🙏🏻😢✨✨✨ please bring the old layout back
yee haw !!!🤠
by darksbane7 on 2018/09/07 13:08
ive used a plethora of photo editing apps, and have not met one that works like this. ive seen a few that might look like they compare but they all cost money, so finding an app with as many great features and usages as canvas provides without having to spend a dime is incredible. the ads on here are not annoying what so ever so thats a big plus. everything is really easy and simple, and you come out with great high quality work. i highly suggest this app for everyone, especially towards people who havent found their picture perfect photo editor. i searched for over four years before finding canvas and im really glad to say i can end that search now. as a user i definitely want to help improve and bring more people to this app, this is the type of app you genuinely get excited about and want to share with others who have the same hobbies. i would however suggest making the undo/redo button more apparent, it doesnt stand out really well and it looks like there is no redo button if you accidentally click undo. at the end of the day i love this app and im extremely pleased with what has been produced 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍
