Used daily

One of my fav apps. I use it daily. I can get more done on my laptop than the app but it’s great for on the go editing.
So easy!
by ModishStephanie on 2019/05/23 23:47
Great, professional looking designs. Easy to use!
Have to sign up

Best quick editor EVER

Canva is my everything. It’s helped me with business material, invitations, personal and professional design. So fast. So easy. So intuitive and accessible. Can’t recommend more!
Great Program!

Can’t add text
by SisterChan on 2019/05/23 16:03
I have a youtube channel and i use this to make thumbnails, just today i was going to make a new thumbnail but it wont let me add text at all! Please fix this problem ASAP!
Great App with beautiful templates and designs...
by Stef Pet on 2019/05/23 15:49
My own critique would be that editing on the mobile version can be frustrating to get the designs just right. However, if you’re looking to upgrade your social media this is the best and easiest way to add visually pleasing posts to your feed or stories!
Pretty Good App!
by thePLAINESTjane on 2019/05/23 15:18
Amazing features, templates for DAYS and nearly any occasion/news. The ONLY thing I wish it would do is allow you to toggle thru multiple accounts. Perfect for graphic designers and social media consultants but if you need access to a few different accounts from clients to yourself, logging in and out can be a chore. Other than that - it’s AMAZING !
Good but crashes...
by ptb2697 on 2019/05/23 14:57
I like all the free stuff, don’t get me wrong, but this app always freezes and crashes. I have the newest phone and newest update so this shouldn’t be happening.
Amazing App
by ARich Life -Alisha Richard on 2019/05/23 14:08
I absolutely love this app. Easy, and affordable.
Excellent
by Arya Kaz on 2019/05/23 13:16
I used this app do a science project for my class. The many templates Canva offers are very helpful. This app doesn’t lag often and it is very user friendly after learning the controls.

I love this app that helps me create original content with great ideas already built-in. Would like a little more freedom on the shapes in a little easier access to all my layers but other than that it’s great!
Easy to use

by Natural Soulutions on 2019/05/22 17:08
Great for business promo or simply just for cute / fun posts on social media. Shout out to the developers of this app. We appreciate you
Good but can get a little glitchy and costs..
by Jess_Ngo on 2019/05/22 13:21
I love this app and I use it for projects. It’s a fun app, but when I rename something it doesn’t work. Also, it is a little confusing because sometimes my elements disappear or my text won’t move! And the mainly pretty stickers cost so when you use a lot of them, you have to pay to save. Overall, it is a good app!

Very limited
by ImErn on 2019/05/21 02:40
I enjoy that I am able to access many templates but the editing mode is very limited. I can’t group or add certain text bullets. Honestly, can’t really do anything to it besides adding basic text and made bing it around.
Incredible tool for business and personal use

I have no graphic design degree, or experience in computer design. With that being said, Canva has helped me create first class advertisements, social media posts, posters, and more for the church that I pastor. It is very user-friendly!

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.

I’ve been using Canva all through my undergrad and even graduate days for everything from flyers advertising psych studies to graduation invitations, and I can honestly say there’s no better app for fun and creative designs that are super easy to customize and turn into your own.
No longer glitching and I love it!

Fantastic, Versatile, and Handy
by Whitewolf<3 on 2019/05/19 13:19
Always use Canva for simple business needs or bigger personal projects, I recommend it to everyone who’s simply trying to draft their own logo or make banners/posters for a school event. I’m definitely going to make the purchase to go pro on the app, it just makes sense and unlocks more nifty tools.

One problem...
by Bonesy614 on 2019/05/18 19:46
It’s a really, really great app. I use it to make my Wattpad covers. It’s just one little thing. When I am done making my photo and I save it, when I go onto my photos app, it makes it white with just the words. Not the photo in the background that I put on it. I will spend 3 hours maybe a photo and then when I go to save it, it won’t save with the photo in the background. And when I try to go on the Canva app, it doesn’t save there also, not even the words. I can save it, but I need to send it to myself which is unfortunate. Please fix this and thanks for making such a great app!! 😀
Needs Access to Uploads
by NPVDHWY on 2019/05/18 17:56
This is my favorite app for social and print media designing. I have done all of my album artwork in Canva.
What a shame
by chrisssy80320 on 2019/05/18 17:33
The desktop website is AMAZING, I’ve used SO many programs - free & paid - Canva is by far my favorite. BUT the app is so glitchy I literally can’t even get it to load when it opens! I don’t intend to design from my phone but the fact that I have to download the graphic to my computer, email it, save it to my phone from the email when there is an app is ridiculous. PLEASE please please fix it. UPDATE: I am BEYOND happy about the app update!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 It works so seamlessly now, haven’t had a single crash! I don’t have a single complaint left. Thank you!!
So easy
by vballdentist on 2019/05/18 14:23
So easy to work with computer or phone on the go. I don’t need a graphic designer with this app. Excellent!
Love it on desktop- HATE it on mobile
by marketing designer on 2019/05/18 10:17
I absolutely love this program but the app is awful. I’ll be in he middle of designing a post and it’ll crash. Over and over again. My designs are also glitched and messed up on the app- the text size, if touched slightly, goes haywire and can’t get back to size, there is no option for transparency of photos, then when I have a design that has a photo with transparency, I pull it up to work on it and can’t even see the text because the photo goes back to full transparency simply by opening the design. What a bummer because this program online is just my favorite program of all time really! His app needs work and fast cause this has been months that I’ve been experiencing this and no change. Please work on this and take canva to the next level!
Black out
by kakedup101 on 2019/05/18 05:08
I love Canva, but something is happening when I resize, update a design, use an illustration, etc. the entire design goes black and white and I can’t continue to work. I’m paying to use it, so for this to be happening so frequently is disappointing. If it’s not fixed soon, I’ll be leaving.
Amazing

Kinda useless...
by NTCImages on 2019/05/17 16:36
I love Canva, but your app is kinda useless if you pinch to zoom in a PHONE and it resizes half of your text and you have to fix it manually EVERY TIME because whatever bug it is doesn't recognize the changes with the undo button.
Ok app, but has issues
by Miipope on 2019/05/17 15:49
This would be a 5 star app if it did what it was suppose to do. I have lots of wonderful designs that I can’t do anything with because they all change once I download them. The elements all move around and the downloaded image is useless.
Love canva
by kenndayy on 2019/05/17 15:43
it is a little more difficult to design using phone. Glitches occasionally be sure to save work as you go
Please Fix iPad Version 🥺
by LTWOODRING on 2019/05/17 13:33
Only 1 star away from a perfect review! I love everything about Canva except whatever this last update was- does NOT, in any way work well on my iPad. It’s super slow to load my designs, I don’t like the editing interface when working on a design with multiple pages. At this point I don’t mind working on a pc, it just used to be great on the iPad. And what’s with this 2.0 error message? My newest designs were created in 2.0 so... Still love it! Just using it on my pc for now.
Not so great and complicated
by uh_no049 on 2019/05/17 12:25
Harder and more complicated to use. Just go on the website instead of installing the app.

Updated version a nightmare
by Taz457 on 2019/05/16 23:57
I updated to the latest version today. It is sooooo frustrating when an update COMPLETELY changes the layout and design of the app. Starting from scratch once more in learning how to use this app. Some of the “new” features are counter-intuitive and/or work completely different which leads to a very frustrating experience. Can no longer easily click between text elements without hitting “done” on every single one first (for example). Definitely watch a tutorial of some kind first! This has completely killed my productivity at work today.
Easy design!
by Rightsideup77 on 2019/05/16 21:02
Easy design, lots of great tools and templates. Created and ordered business cards and party invitations and am very happy with both. Great for social media posts and ads, too!

I have no idea how to use photoshop at all but some of the designs I’ve made on Canva have been used by my employer from everything from sale signs and various print materials. In fact people around the office have started to ask me to design stuff for them as well. I highly recommend Canva for anyone who needs to design anything from social media post to print materials. Definitely very user friendly and easy to get the hang of once you start to dive in!
Love this app!

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&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.
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
I believe that the functionality of the design has gone down with the new interface update. Viewing my projects was way easier in the previous design. I find it harder to add in my own logos from external applications. The reason I loved this App was because I could be creative while on the go with my iPad or iPhone but now I will have to return to using the Website version to make the process easier on me which is not favorable. Please don't prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
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't use my laptop for some reason I'm not getting that same experience on my phone. It's a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it's harder for me to find them and control, I can't change the sizes of my pictures and I can't copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it's stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don't like the size or something else I can't add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can't make the exact changes I want. I also noticed that some of my old savings have fonts but I saved through phone some of them are gone and I can't get them back again :( other than that I'm really happy there is a app version! I also really like that you can have your work every where and other devices! Thats really smart!
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.
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.
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! 🤗
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 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.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
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.
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!
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 😂
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?
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.
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 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍

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
Works great sometimes but the app glitches a lot
by ChannellN on 2018/10/30 02:23
I use Canva a lot and it works pretty well on my laptop but there are a few issues with the app. 1. When looking at designs on the app they scale differently than on the laptop. You have to review the images in the app to make sure the font is the correct size and when you open the app, colors change, images shift and the fonts change. 2. The app glitches and freezes a lot. While making edits the app will reset the entire graphic and won’t allow you to fix it how it was. You end up spending more work correcting the app issues than creating the actual design. 3. You can’t create GIF designs on the app. If you create them on the desktop it saves on the mobile device as a sold photo. I have to use my scheduling app to post the actual GIF from my laptop. I would also suggest a phone display option on the laptop. You have no way of telling if the font choice or size is appropriate for mobile view without opening the app. This creates an extra step and sometimes more work because the app glitches and changes what you already created.
Update is Terrible
by --SelinaV-- on 2018/11/15 22:24
I used to love the Canva app and I use it all the time for work. At first glance, this update is great. It looks beautiful, sleek, and minimized. However, when you start using it, it’s impossible to use regularly. It is no longer friendly to original designs, it is completely focused on the pre-made templates. Things aren’t that straightforward... for example: to add your own images without a template, you have to upload them in “Icons” (??) and the way you need to tap elements for different actions isn’t that intuitive. Worst of all, it is CONSTANTLY crashing on me. It’ll give me the “We couldn’t save your work” message and kicks me out of my graphic. I suppose the only saving grace to this issue is that I’m only able to make one minor change before this happens. What should have been a simple, straight forward design that could’ve taken me 15 minutes to make, is still incomplete because it won’t save anything I do.
My first review
by marketing me on 2018/12/08 01:09
Fairly certain I’ve never written a review before. I have no marketing training and was brought on my job to do the marketing stuff. I read as many books as possible then when it came time to create images for our newsletter or Facebook I found Canva. The things this app has allowed me to create WITHOUT having to pay is incredible. Im so happy this app exists and it has made me feel so much more confident and so much happier about the work I’m producing. It’s so easy to use and really high quality stuff. The templates are fantastic and I’m so happy with the features and templates that are free. I’d recommend this to anyone who does or doesn’t have graphics experience. It’s an incredible help!
Too many glitches
by SadeTC on 2019/03/21 15:08
After i decided to pay for the subscription, the app seemed to get glitchy. Once I’m done with a project and I exit that project and go back into it, my last changes are not saved. I still don’t like that I can’t download a project without the background via my mobile phone. I have to save it and access it from my laptop and that’s a huge inconvenience because I mostly work on the go. Majority of the time, I have to save my work for later, until I get home and this slows my business down. Or I have to take my laptop with me today everywhere I go. I don’t like that once I choose colors for a logo, the most recent colors I’ve chosen aren’t there anymore. That feature somehow vanished. Please makes this better. I really like this app but it’s frustrating when I use it.
It was great before but now....
by nejdufuchch on 2018/10/04 07:37
Ever since the recent update the app doesn’t work anymore. It logged me out of my account, which I thought was relatively normal and didn’t question. But once I put in my login information it would spend like 5 minutes loading and then I would get a message saying “We are unable to log you in at this time, check if your app is up to date and try again”. Well.....the update just happened. I can see that the app is up to date. Not only that, but I tried to see if resetting my password would work and the option to get a password reset won’t work either. I would click it and it wouldn’t do anything.... I really hope they get this fixed soon because I have a lot of designs in this app that I’m pretty proud of and I don’t want to lose them.
Great App for creating Flyers
by Marcie L. on 2018/10/22 06:43
I loved Canva! However, ever since the recent update, I have lost a lot of information in the app. Such as the logos I have stored. I’m not sure if this had anything to do with me upgrading phones from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone XS Max or not, but the app has not been functioning the same ever since it has updated either. Also when I try to move items around or resize them on a flyer design they tend disappear. I’m no sure what is happening as when I very first started using Canva, the app worked perfectly and I was in love with its functionality. Please try to fix these issues. If these issues are fixed, the app would definitely get 5 stars from me!!
It’s a love/hate relationship
by coveredinclay on 2019/05/13 20:26
I want to fully love this app, but my biggest issue with it is it CRASHES almost every time I use it. No matter the update. And my iPad is not ancient so that shouldn’t be a part of it. I love the content it offers though. It makes designing ads for my restaurant very easy. I do wish it had some features like being able to use the directional keys to move things and support special font uploads without needing to get Canva for Work (Not something my restaurant wants to buy). Overall it has certainly helped me up our marketing game but I do find that I am fighting with it more than flowing with it. Maybe it’s because I am not a graphic designer; I’m just your average gal trying to make professional looking posts. Overall I would recommend it, but not without mentioning its caveats.
Why did you mess with greatness? —> THANK YOU!
by sueface on 2018/12/05 13:05
Newer updates = newer review. THANK YOU ... you’re back to 5 stars with me. Your latest update has made using Canva fun again. My iPad and I are extremely pleased. 👍 I LOVED this app ... prior to your latest “update”. I use it on my iPad all the time - landscape still isn’t working and it we now have to go thru extra steps just to create simple designs. Currently I’m trying to find out how to change the color of my added text. Where did that go? It’s very frustrating - especially when I’ve already paid for the “professional“ version. I’ll be happy to change my review back to 5 stars if you fix all these issues we’ve mentioned.
Really want to like it but...
by ihavetopickanickname on 2019/04/30 20:53
I have had Canva for the last couple years and the recent update is now preventing me from putting my business logo - that I uploaded and did NOT make in the app - on my posts. It says I have to sign up for the monthly subscription service. Nope. It’s not in the budget and I don’t need the extra features like photos, etc because I use my own. I wouldn’t be surprised if in the next year or two most features become locked unless you pay. I get it, they need to make money. Fine. So now I will go back to making posts on my computer and doing social media that way. Other than that, the features are great and I love the layouts and fonts. Like I said, I don’t use the photos but it seems like there’s a decent selection for free and even more if you pay.
Great app! Just one suggestion
by The Beatmachine on 2019/03/29 17:42
This app is fantastic. The preset designs and fonts are all very professional looking and awesome. My one comment is that I’m having trouble centering any element that isn’t text. There was a feature where when you were dragging an element across the page, it would tell you when you were directly in the center or aligned with another element in the graphic. For some reason, that is no longer accessible...? That was a great feature and I really hope you bring it back because it is so much easier to make graphics look professional when I can center my logo or align it with something else in the design. Please address this!
Upset with the recent update
by yungmeredith on 2018/11/20 18:06
I got this app a little over a month ago and I loved it at first. I am working on an iPad with an attachable keyboard and it felt very easy to work on projects through this app. Unfortunately with the new update, I am no longer able to view anything in landscape like I was before! Not only that, but the portrait mode doesn’t even let you view your work in full screen. I am trying to work through it and remain patient as I have been told that they are working on this issue. But on top of those other issues, the app itself is EXTREMELY slow! When trying to type, there is a massive lag in time causing the whole process to be very painful and slow when it used to be very cohesive and quick. I’m so disappointed! Canva, please fix!
Good App, HORRIBLE service
by Hssfruibcjcg on 2019/01/31 13:59
I paid for the new year 50% off deal and nothing on my app changed! What is the point of paying for it?! I still have to save pictures with the Canva watermark , still making me pay extra to remove it. And the app is STILL having the pop up offering me the new year 50% off special. I’m ASSUMING the app didn’t realize I paid for it and is still offering me the special. I emailed Canva support and “Jassie” didn’t understand my question for the first 2 emails and sent me irrelevant information even offering me to pay for Canva business. She also said Canva doesn't have a phone number for customer support. She then said she can’t help me and to contact ITunes / Apple/ App Store support. No she didn’t provide me with information on how to contact them either. The app is great besides the fact it freezes a lot but this is ridiculous to pay money and not receive the service. 🙄🙄🙄
Strides post Dec '18; app needs landscape mode
by indietheinfinite on 2019/04/07 17:50
Canva is amazing once you get to know it. Though it cannot completely replace the big names yet, they seem to be working diligently to do so. While we wait, canva serves as a great time saver alongside said programs. Using it online has proven to be the most effective and most flexible: users can combine various template elements to create one unique file - no more need to create something from scratch. It is a major plus to access and edit cpu creations via mobile iOS with such flexibility. Only two gripes with the mobile application: we creators and business owners need the ability to work in landscape. Also, we need the ability to zoom in/out without negatively impacting our designs.
Cool, but no thanks
by AldrichZurcher on 2019/02/09 06:45
The design interface of the app is kind of cool. However, options for editing designs and tweaking them are pretty limited compared to other apps out there(apps like Bazaart, Studio, etc). No shadows, highlights, spacing, or other options. Only color and opacity, and that’s it. Let’s talk about exporting. It. Takes. Forever!!! I’m not going to sit there while it takes 5 minutes to freaking process slapping two words on one average-res image. Also, choosing a font can be a pain as well. Let’s say you scroll down and pick a font from the “H” section of the font list. You don’t like how it looks, so you want to choose the one right below it on the list, which looked interesting as well. WELL, you have to open the list again, then manually scroll down, and find the spot again on the list in order to change the font. Every time. It’s a pain. As designers, we are constantly switching the font back and forth to see which one looks best. We need to be able to do it fast and fast and fast. Just making it so that it saves your spot on the alphabetical list of fonts would be soooo helpful. Other than that, the app interface looks great!
The new upgrade is garbage on my iPad
by shear madness on 2018/10/29 12:35
I can’t express how much I hate this new upgrade. I use this on my iPad. For starters, I have my iPad in a keyboard case and I use it on it’s side. The new upgrade no longer tips to the side so I have to use my iPad upright and that’s just really inconvenient. Second, editing things is NOT easier. The text boxes are not the same and can not be edited the same, it’s horrible. Really the whole thing is horrible. I can’t download my image anymore and save it, I only have the option to share it. I made an image with a greyscale filter and when I was sharing it, it was trying to share the original image with color. That’s not what I wanted. Like I said, this whole upgrade is horrible. More than likely I will switch to a different app because no one who matters is going to read this and make changes. Congrats, you guys just turned a great thing into garbage.
Canva review (idk what to title this)
by #iloveorchestra on 2019/05/04 23:26
I got canva for a school project and I automatically saw how different it was. I haven’t gotten to discover all of its features yet, but from what I’ve seen it’s a cool app that lets you do so much for free compared to all those editing and scrapbooking etc apps that have monthly payments. You get a surprisingly large amount of features for free (and even more for pretty cheap) I’ve already told my dad about it’s cool business card and Christmas card templates (he makes a Xmas card every year) He is a professional photographer and he seemed interested when I told him about the editing tools too. I’m excited to explore the app more 🥰
Love it on desktop- HATE it on mobile
by marketing designer on 2019/05/18 10:17
I absolutely love this program but the app is awful. I’ll be in he middle of designing a post and it’ll crash. Over and over again. My designs are also glitched and messed up on the app- the text size, if touched slightly, goes haywire and can’t get back to size, there is no option for transparency of photos, then when I have a design that has a photo with transparency, I pull it up to work on it and can’t even see the text because the photo goes back to full transparency simply by opening the design. What a bummer because this program online is just my favorite program of all time really! His app needs work and fast cause this has been months that I’ve been experiencing this and no change. Please work on this and take canva to the next level!
I hate the app. Horrid update.
by Opal Damour on 2019/01/15 18:41
I adore Canva. The web version that is. The app is awful. It used to be bad, but usable in a pinch. It only had about 60% of the functions of the web app, but you could function in it. This update made the app total garbage. You can’t lengthen any of the graphics (like the boxes) only expand their total size. The navigation is difficult to use, and nothing is intuitive. Plus, any image you create is saved to Canva 1.0... which is ridiculous because the company is pushing everyone to Canva 2.0. This means if you use the web app you have to copy the image into 2.0. Its a waste of time and a utter lack of seamlessness. When you try to resize a photo to the canvas the ENTIRE CANVAS sifts partially off screen. On top of all that, the app now have less than 30% of the functions of the web version. Whats the point? So I went to the web version on my ipad only to be instantly redirected to the trashed app. I immediately uninstalled the app. I wont be reinstalling until its seamless with the web version. Until then its a waste of time when the whole point of Canva is to save time and make graphic design faster and simpler. Skip the app. Use the web version. Save yourself the frustration. Total miss Canva! Fire your app developer and start over.
The only Graphic Design app you’ll ever need
by Ajjaz on 2018/12/04 06:36
If you need to design your own flyers business cards, posters, etc. but are not a graphic designer by trade, then look no further than Canva. Canva is the best! They give you options to choose your pixel size, add in your own .png files, alter backgrounds shapes and colors, add lines and shapes, flip or rotate images, etc. Plus, all these features are absolutely free! I've designed hundreds of images for my business using Canva, saving me thousands. Love this App, 5 stars for sure! Btw, don’t forget that you have to use the website for most design functions, but you can view your work easily within the app.
I Love Your App!!
by Ashley :):):) on 2018/12/10 06:40
This app is a brilliant app that I’ve used for a little more than three months now, at least I think it’s been more than three months, LOL. Even if the photos that cost money are the ones that I’ve wanted, I could still find much similar ones on the internet so I could download them onto Canva, so please DON’T change that. 😂 I enjoy making book covers and the other things provided on there, but I wish you would at least make some of the photos free, because sometimes I just can’t find similar ones. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I hope you will continue attracting more viewers to your app! :)
great if you have no issues
by jnasrah on 2019/03/27 20:38
this app is fantastic for designs and stuff, however it has the absolute WORST customer service if you have any issues or questions. they take 5+ days to respond (AT LEAST 5+ days, sometimes you won't even get a response) to any sort of question, which is ridiculous considering it's an app made for designers who work primarily on deadlines. not only do they take forever to respond, they're honestly not very helpful when they do. half the time the designs save blurry, unless you go save it as a pdf and then go to another app and convert it to a jpg (this is what the customer service said to do - a ridiculous amount of steps to save your design). it's a bummer cuz everything else about this app is great, but it's incredibly frustrating so pack your patience
Canva, where I’ve you been all my life?!
by Olivegreenbranch on 2018/10/15 00:03
This app is amazing! It is compatible with my phone, IPad and computer and makes it very easy to continue being productive even when I am on the go. There are free and paid-for elements/ components or you can upload your own. I used to make all my flyers from scratch on MS Publisher and it was time consuming. This is way more user friendly including ready made prototypes that can be saved and altered in various ways- swap out pics, change text, toggle between a myriad of fonts for just the right one, move the layout around, change out color schemes, change transparency levels or tweak the tint of a picture. You can also copy whole documents and alter the new copy to a new version. The biggest plus is that you can pick the format of your medium you are creating: choose the template for flyer, poster, etc., etc. ...(I usually make posters so I can’t recall all of the formats, but there are lots!) The biggest plus: free account. Also, can be set up to share with coworkers.

Great App with beautiful templates and designs...
by Stef Pet on 2019/05/23 15:49
My own critique would be that editing on the mobile version can be frustrating to get the designs just right. However, if you’re looking to upgrade your social media this is the best and easiest way to add visually pleasing posts to your feed or stories!
Pretty Good App!
by thePLAINESTjane on 2019/05/23 15:18
Amazing features, templates for DAYS and nearly any occasion/news. The ONLY thing I wish it would do is allow you to toggle thru multiple accounts. Perfect for graphic designers and social media consultants but if you need access to a few different accounts from clients to yourself, logging in and out can be a chore. Other than that - it’s AMAZING !
Good but crashes...
by ptb2697 on 2019/05/23 14:57
I like all the free stuff, don’t get me wrong, but this app always freezes and crashes. I have the newest phone and newest update so this shouldn’t be happening.
Amazing App

Good but can get a little glitchy and costs..
by Jess_Ngo on 2019/05/22 13:21
I love this app and I use it for projects. It’s a fun app, but when I rename something it doesn’t work. Also, it is a little confusing because sometimes my elements disappear or my text won’t move! And the mainly pretty stickers cost so when you use a lot of them, you have to pay to save. Overall, it is a good app!

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.

Simple and fun!
by ExoTae on 2019/05/20 03:44
I’ve been using Canva all through my undergrad and even graduate days for everything from flyers advertising psych studies to graduation invitations, and I can honestly say there’s no better app for fun and creative designs that are super easy to customize and turn into your own.
No longer glitching and I love it!

Doesn’t work anymore
by TitiSweetz on 2019/05/19 15:49
I keep trying to login but after one of the recent updates, I can no longer log in. This bug has rendered this app useless to me now.
Fantastic, Versatile, and Handy
by Whitewolf<3 on 2019/05/19 13:19
Always use Canva for simple business needs or bigger personal projects, I recommend it to everyone who’s simply trying to draft their own logo or make banners/posters for a school event. I’m definitely going to make the purchase to go pro on the app, it just makes sense and unlocks more nifty tools.
Me encanta Canva

One problem...
by Bonesy614 on 2019/05/18 19:46
It’s a really, really great app. I use it to make my Wattpad covers. It’s just one little thing. When I am done making my photo and I save it, when I go onto my photos app, it makes it white with just the words. Not the photo in the background that I put on it. I will spend 3 hours maybe a photo and then when I go to save it, it won’t save with the photo in the background. And when I try to go on the Canva app, it doesn’t save there also, not even the words. I can save it, but I need to send it to myself which is unfortunate. Please fix this and thanks for making such a great app!! 😀
Needs Access to Uploads
by NPVDHWY on 2019/05/18 17:56
This is my favorite app for social and print media designing. I have done all of my album artwork in Canva.
What a shame
by chrisssy80320 on 2019/05/18 17:33
The desktop website is AMAZING, I’ve used SO many programs - free & paid - Canva is by far my favorite. BUT the app is so glitchy I literally can’t even get it to load when it opens! I don’t intend to design from my phone but the fact that I have to download the graphic to my computer, email it, save it to my phone from the email when there is an app is ridiculous. PLEASE please please fix it. UPDATE: I am BEYOND happy about the app update!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 It works so seamlessly now, haven’t had a single crash! I don’t have a single complaint left. Thank you!!
So easy
by vballdentist on 2019/05/18 14:23
So easy to work with computer or phone on the go. I don’t need a graphic designer with this app. Excellent!
Love it on desktop- HATE it on mobile
by marketing designer on 2019/05/18 10:17
I absolutely love this program but the app is awful. I’ll be in he middle of designing a post and it’ll crash. Over and over again. My designs are also glitched and messed up on the app- the text size, if touched slightly, goes haywire and can’t get back to size, there is no option for transparency of photos, then when I have a design that has a photo with transparency, I pull it up to work on it and can’t even see the text because the photo goes back to full transparency simply by opening the design. What a bummer because this program online is just my favorite program of all time really! His app needs work and fast cause this has been months that I’ve been experiencing this and no change. Please work on this and take canva to the next level!
Black out
by kakedup101 on 2019/05/18 05:08
I love Canva, but something is happening when I resize, update a design, use an illustration, etc. the entire design goes black and white and I can’t continue to work. I’m paying to use it, so for this to be happening so frequently is disappointing. If it’s not fixed soon, I’ll be leaving.
Amazing

Kinda useless...
by NTCImages on 2019/05/17 16:36
I love Canva, but your app is kinda useless if you pinch to zoom in a PHONE and it resizes half of your text and you have to fix it manually EVERY TIME because whatever bug it is doesn't recognize the changes with the undo button.
Ok app, but has issues
by Miipope on 2019/05/17 15:49
This would be a 5 star app if it did what it was suppose to do. I have lots of wonderful designs that I can’t do anything with because they all change once I download them. The elements all move around and the downloaded image is useless.
Love canva
by kenndayy on 2019/05/17 15:43
it is a little more difficult to design using phone. Glitches occasionally be sure to save work as you go
Please Fix iPad Version 🥺
by LTWOODRING on 2019/05/17 13:33
Only 1 star away from a perfect review! I love everything about Canva except whatever this last update was- does NOT, in any way work well on my iPad. It’s super slow to load my designs, I don’t like the editing interface when working on a design with multiple pages. At this point I don’t mind working on a pc, it just used to be great on the iPad. And what’s with this 2.0 error message? My newest designs were created in 2.0 so... Still love it! Just using it on my pc for now.
Not so great and complicated
by uh_no049 on 2019/05/17 12:25
Harder and more complicated to use. Just go on the website instead of installing the app.

Updated version a nightmare
by Taz457 on 2019/05/16 23:57
I updated to the latest version today. It is sooooo frustrating when an update COMPLETELY changes the layout and design of the app. Starting from scratch once more in learning how to use this app. Some of the “new” features are counter-intuitive and/or work completely different which leads to a very frustrating experience. Can no longer easily click between text elements without hitting “done” on every single one first (for example). Definitely watch a tutorial of some kind first! This has completely killed my productivity at work today.
Easy design!
by Rightsideup77 on 2019/05/16 21:02
Easy design, lots of great tools and templates. Created and ordered business cards and party invitations and am very happy with both. Great for social media posts and ads, too!
Great app

I absolutely love this app!! I have created so many posters, invitations and certificates with this app. If you are looking for an app to help you create any of those things this is the one for you! And you don’t even have to pay! I searched through a lot of apps before finding this one and it has 100% prevailed!

I have no idea how to use photoshop at all but some of the designs I’ve made on Canva have been used by my employer from everything from sale signs and various print materials. In fact people around the office have started to ask me to design stuff for them as well. I highly recommend Canva for anyone who needs to design anything from social media post to print materials. Definitely very user friendly and easy to get the hang of once you start to dive in!
Love this app!
by Danielle Nicole Russell on 2019/05/16 16:22
As a small business owner who is not very tech savvy, this app is perfect! The designs are modern and super easy to use

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&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.
New update: why?
by Selena_Ewing on 2018/11/09 05:13
I believe that the functionality of the design has gone down with the new interface update. Viewing my projects was way easier in the previous design. I find it harder to add in my own logos from external applications. The reason I loved this App was because I could be creative while on the go with my iPad or iPhone but now I will have to return to using the Website version to make the process easier on me which is not favorable. Please don't prioritize drastic design changes that sacrifice simple but helpful shortcuts like: the grid feature that directed placement of your designs in a geometric symmetry with the overall design, having user-friendly editing for mobile devices that allows you to view all tabs of editing possibilities, and having easy capability of zooming in and out of your design. And every time I open a design up the program changes placement and color of everything on the page and I have to exit and re-enter the design MULTIPLE times before it even becomes similar to what I had saved last. Overall, incredible application but I cannot stand the newest update because of all the difficulties it has brought to my creative process.
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't use my laptop for some reason I'm not getting that same experience on my phone. It's a little more difficult, it may have some of the same properties but it's harder for me to find them and control, I can't change the sizes of my pictures and I can't copy and paste if I want a certain thing on a different page but then it's stuck on the one I have it on, and also I wanted to mention that I delete the old image because I don't like the size or something else I can't add my own afterwards so I would have to replace the other one but then I can't make the exact changes I want. I also noticed that some of my old savings have fonts but I saved through phone some of them are gone and I can't get them back again :( other than that I'm really happy there is a app version! I also really like that you can have your work every where and other devices! Thats really smart!
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.
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.
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! 🤗
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 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.
New Update with many flaws
by User 071010 on 2018/12/31 08:08
This app was initially a great app. It’s easy of use and the ability to edit on your mobile device was great. Unfortunately, with the new update there are many bugs which makes the app very frustrating. I find that I have to go back to the computer to do all my work. The app doesn’t save the changes I make to blurring images so nothing saves and I have to wait until I have a desktop to make the changes. Also, with the new web version, you can’t edit some of your designs in the app. You have to go to the web application. If someone shares a design with you, you can’t edit it on the mobile app. You have to go to a desktop. The mobile site forces you to use the mobile app so you can’t get around it and you have to wait and plan to have everything done on your desktop eliminating the convenience of a mobile app. Overall, I think the design options and what it has done for us who have little to design skill is great and I appreciate that, but the level of frustration with the mobile app is so frustrating!
Disappointed. Is it just the update?!?
by sizzle iphone on 2019/02/09 14:47
I really wanted to love this app. I created a small project before and the experience was good. I have to agree with others that the recent update for iPad is not good. As I’m trying to work on a presentation, I find the iPad app is incredibly frustrating to use now. Changing the text on a page template requires severe tapping or holding to bring up the edit fields. And when you click done, each time the window closes and takes you to the last page instead of the template you were working on. It’s taking three times as long to finish something so simple. Also the template “layout” I want to use doesn’t show up on the iPad. So I had to add the template to my designs in the online version in order to see it on iPad. Giving up on the iPad version and going to use the online version on desktop to finish the project I started. But to say the least, I’m disappointed because I am looking for a good iPad app that has the creativity and functionality.
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.
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!
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 😂
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?
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.

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 🤠🤠🤠🤠👍

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
Works great sometimes but the app glitches a lot
by ChannellN on 2018/10/30 02:23
I use Canva a lot and it works pretty well on my laptop but there are a few issues with the app. 1. When looking at designs on the app they scale differently than on the laptop. You have to review the images in the app to make sure the font is the correct size and when you open the app, colors change, images shift and the fonts change. 2. The app glitches and freezes a lot. While making edits the app will reset the entire graphic and won’t allow you to fix it how it was. You end up spending more work correcting the app issues than creating the actual design. 3. You can’t create GIF designs on the app. If you create them on the desktop it saves on the mobile device as a sold photo. I have to use my scheduling app to post the actual GIF from my laptop. I would also suggest a phone display option on the laptop. You have no way of telling if the font choice or size is appropriate for mobile view without opening the app. This creates an extra step and sometimes more work because the app glitches and changes what you already created.
Update is Terrible
by --SelinaV-- on 2018/11/15 22:24
I used to love the Canva app and I use it all the time for work. At first glance, this update is great. It looks beautiful, sleek, and minimized. However, when you start using it, it’s impossible to use regularly. It is no longer friendly to original designs, it is completely focused on the pre-made templates. Things aren’t that straightforward... for example: to add your own images without a template, you have to upload them in “Icons” (??) and the way you need to tap elements for different actions isn’t that intuitive. Worst of all, it is CONSTANTLY crashing on me. It’ll give me the “We couldn’t save your work” message and kicks me out of my graphic. I suppose the only saving grace to this issue is that I’m only able to make one minor change before this happens. What should have been a simple, straight forward design that could’ve taken me 15 minutes to make, is still incomplete because it won’t save anything I do.
My first review
by marketing me on 2018/12/08 01:09
Fairly certain I’ve never written a review before. I have no marketing training and was brought on my job to do the marketing stuff. I read as many books as possible then when it came time to create images for our newsletter or Facebook I found Canva. The things this app has allowed me to create WITHOUT having to pay is incredible. Im so happy this app exists and it has made me feel so much more confident and so much happier about the work I’m producing. It’s so easy to use and really high quality stuff. The templates are fantastic and I’m so happy with the features and templates that are free. I’d recommend this to anyone who does or doesn’t have graphics experience. It’s an incredible help!
Too many glitches
by SadeTC on 2019/03/21 15:08
After i decided to pay for the subscription, the app seemed to get glitchy. Once I’m done with a project and I exit that project and go back into it, my last changes are not saved. I still don’t like that I can’t download a project without the background via my mobile phone. I have to save it and access it from my laptop and that’s a huge inconvenience because I mostly work on the go. Majority of the time, I have to save my work for later, until I get home and this slows my business down. Or I have to take my laptop with me today everywhere I go. I don’t like that once I choose colors for a logo, the most recent colors I’ve chosen aren’t there anymore. That feature somehow vanished. Please makes this better. I really like this app but it’s frustrating when I use it.
It was great before but now....
by nejdufuchch on 2018/10/04 07:37
Ever since the recent update the app doesn’t work anymore. It logged me out of my account, which I thought was relatively normal and didn’t question. But once I put in my login information it would spend like 5 minutes loading and then I would get a message saying “We are unable to log you in at this time, check if your app is up to date and try again”. Well.....the update just happened. I can see that the app is up to date. Not only that, but I tried to see if resetting my password would work and the option to get a password reset won’t work either. I would click it and it wouldn’t do anything.... I really hope they get this fixed soon because I have a lot of designs in this app that I’m pretty proud of and I don’t want to lose them.
Great App for creating Flyers
by Marcie L. on 2018/10/22 06:43
I loved Canva! However, ever since the recent update, I have lost a lot of information in the app. Such as the logos I have stored. I’m not sure if this had anything to do with me upgrading phones from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone XS Max or not, but the app has not been functioning the same ever since it has updated either. Also when I try to move items around or resize them on a flyer design they tend disappear. I’m no sure what is happening as when I very first started using Canva, the app worked perfectly and I was in love with its functionality. Please try to fix these issues. If these issues are fixed, the app would definitely get 5 stars from me!!
It’s a love/hate relationship
by coveredinclay on 2019/05/13 20:26
I want to fully love this app, but my biggest issue with it is it CRASHES almost every time I use it. No matter the update. And my iPad is not ancient so that shouldn’t be a part of it. I love the content it offers though. It makes designing ads for my restaurant very easy. I do wish it had some features like being able to use the directional keys to move things and support special font uploads without needing to get Canva for Work (Not something my restaurant wants to buy). Overall it has certainly helped me up our marketing game but I do find that I am fighting with it more than flowing with it. Maybe it’s because I am not a graphic designer; I’m just your average gal trying to make professional looking posts. Overall I would recommend it, but not without mentioning its caveats.
Why did you mess with greatness? —> THANK YOU!
by sueface on 2018/12/05 13:05
Newer updates = newer review. THANK YOU ... you’re back to 5 stars with me. Your latest update has made using Canva fun again. My iPad and I are extremely pleased. 👍 I LOVED this app ... prior to your latest “update”. I use it on my iPad all the time - landscape still isn’t working and it we now have to go thru extra steps just to create simple designs. Currently I’m trying to find out how to change the color of my added text. Where did that go? It’s very frustrating - especially when I’ve already paid for the “professional“ version. I’ll be happy to change my review back to 5 stars if you fix all these issues we’ve mentioned.
Really want to like it but...
by ihavetopickanickname on 2019/04/30 20:53
I have had Canva for the last couple years and the recent update is now preventing me from putting my business logo - that I uploaded and did NOT make in the app - on my posts. It says I have to sign up for the monthly subscription service. Nope. It’s not in the budget and I don’t need the extra features like photos, etc because I use my own. I wouldn’t be surprised if in the next year or two most features become locked unless you pay. I get it, they need to make money. Fine. So now I will go back to making posts on my computer and doing social media that way. Other than that, the features are great and I love the layouts and fonts. Like I said, I don’t use the photos but it seems like there’s a decent selection for free and even more if you pay.
Great app! Just one suggestion
by The Beatmachine on 2019/03/29 17:42
This app is fantastic. The preset designs and fonts are all very professional looking and awesome. My one comment is that I’m having trouble centering any element that isn’t text. There was a feature where when you were dragging an element across the page, it would tell you when you were directly in the center or aligned with another element in the graphic. For some reason, that is no longer accessible...? That was a great feature and I really hope you bring it back because it is so much easier to make graphics look professional when I can center my logo or align it with something else in the design. Please address this!
Upset with the recent update
by yungmeredith on 2018/11/20 18:06
I got this app a little over a month ago and I loved it at first. I am working on an iPad with an attachable keyboard and it felt very easy to work on projects through this app. Unfortunately with the new update, I am no longer able to view anything in landscape like I was before! Not only that, but the portrait mode doesn’t even let you view your work in full screen. I am trying to work through it and remain patient as I have been told that they are working on this issue. But on top of those other issues, the app itself is EXTREMELY slow! When trying to type, there is a massive lag in time causing the whole process to be very painful and slow when it used to be very cohesive and quick. I’m so disappointed! Canva, please fix!
Good App, HORRIBLE service
by Hssfruibcjcg on 2019/01/31 13:59
I paid for the new year 50% off deal and nothing on my app changed! What is the point of paying for it?! I still have to save pictures with the Canva watermark , still making me pay extra to remove it. And the app is STILL having the pop up offering me the new year 50% off special. I’m ASSUMING the app didn’t realize I paid for it and is still offering me the special. I emailed Canva support and “Jassie” didn’t understand my question for the first 2 emails and sent me irrelevant information even offering me to pay for Canva business. She also said Canva doesn't have a phone number for customer support. She then said she can’t help me and to contact ITunes / Apple/ App Store support. No she didn’t provide me with information on how to contact them either. The app is great besides the fact it freezes a lot but this is ridiculous to pay money and not receive the service. 🙄🙄🙄
Strides post Dec '18; app needs landscape mode
by indietheinfinite on 2019/04/07 17:50
Canva is amazing once you get to know it. Though it cannot completely replace the big names yet, they seem to be working diligently to do so. While we wait, canva serves as a great time saver alongside said programs. Using it online has proven to be the most effective and most flexible: users can combine various template elements to create one unique file - no more need to create something from scratch. It is a major plus to access and edit cpu creations via mobile iOS with such flexibility. Only two gripes with the mobile application: we creators and business owners need the ability to work in landscape. Also, we need the ability to zoom in/out without negatively impacting our designs.
Cool, but no thanks
by AldrichZurcher on 2019/02/09 06:45
The design interface of the app is kind of cool. However, options for editing designs and tweaking them are pretty limited compared to other apps out there(apps like Bazaart, Studio, etc). No shadows, highlights, spacing, or other options. Only color and opacity, and that’s it. Let’s talk about exporting. It. Takes. Forever!!! I’m not going to sit there while it takes 5 minutes to freaking process slapping two words on one average-res image. Also, choosing a font can be a pain as well. Let’s say you scroll down and pick a font from the “H” section of the font list. You don’t like how it looks, so you want to choose the one right below it on the list, which looked interesting as well. WELL, you have to open the list again, then manually scroll down, and find the spot again on the list in order to change the font. Every time. It’s a pain. As designers, we are constantly switching the font back and forth to see which one looks best. We need to be able to do it fast and fast and fast. Just making it so that it saves your spot on the alphabetical list of fonts would be soooo helpful. Other than that, the app interface looks great!
The new upgrade is garbage on my iPad
by shear madness on 2018/10/29 12:35
I can’t express how much I hate this new upgrade. I use this on my iPad. For starters, I have my iPad in a keyboard case and I use it on it’s side. The new upgrade no longer tips to the side so I have to use my iPad upright and that’s just really inconvenient. Second, editing things is NOT easier. The text boxes are not the same and can not be edited the same, it’s horrible. Really the whole thing is horrible. I can’t download my image anymore and save it, I only have the option to share it. I made an image with a greyscale filter and when I was sharing it, it was trying to share the original image with color. That’s not what I wanted. Like I said, this whole upgrade is horrible. More than likely I will switch to a different app because no one who matters is going to read this and make changes. Congrats, you guys just turned a great thing into garbage.
Canva review (idk what to title this)
by #iloveorchestra on 2019/05/04 23:26
I got canva for a school project and I automatically saw how different it was. I haven’t gotten to discover all of its features yet, but from what I’ve seen it’s a cool app that lets you do so much for free compared to all those editing and scrapbooking etc apps that have monthly payments. You get a surprisingly large amount of features for free (and even more for pretty cheap) I’ve already told my dad about it’s cool business card and Christmas card templates (he makes a Xmas card every year) He is a professional photographer and he seemed interested when I told him about the editing tools too. I’m excited to explore the app more 🥰
Love it on desktop- HATE it on mobile
by marketing designer on 2019/05/18 10:17
I absolutely love this program but the app is awful. I’ll be in he middle of designing a post and it’ll crash. Over and over again. My designs are also glitched and messed up on the app- the text size, if touched slightly, goes haywire and can’t get back to size, there is no option for transparency of photos, then when I have a design that has a photo with transparency, I pull it up to work on it and can’t even see the text because the photo goes back to full transparency simply by opening the design. What a bummer because this program online is just my favorite program of all time really! His app needs work and fast cause this has been months that I’ve been experiencing this and no change. Please work on this and take canva to the next level!
I hate the app. Horrid update.
by Opal Damour on 2019/01/15 18:41
I adore Canva. The web version that is. The app is awful. It used to be bad, but usable in a pinch. It only had about 60% of the functions of the web app, but you could function in it. This update made the app total garbage. You can’t lengthen any of the graphics (like the boxes) only expand their total size. The navigation is difficult to use, and nothing is intuitive. Plus, any image you create is saved to Canva 1.0... which is ridiculous because the company is pushing everyone to Canva 2.0. This means if you use the web app you have to copy the image into 2.0. Its a waste of time and a utter lack of seamlessness. When you try to resize a photo to the canvas the ENTIRE CANVAS sifts partially off screen. On top of all that, the app now have less than 30% of the functions of the web version. Whats the point? So I went to the web version on my ipad only to be instantly redirected to the trashed app. I immediately uninstalled the app. I wont be reinstalling until its seamless with the web version. Until then its a waste of time when the whole point of Canva is to save time and make graphic design faster and simpler. Skip the app. Use the web version. Save yourself the frustration. Total miss Canva! Fire your app developer and start over.
The only Graphic Design app you’ll ever need
by Ajjaz on 2018/12/04 06:36
If you need to design your own flyers business cards, posters, etc. but are not a graphic designer by trade, then look no further than Canva. Canva is the best! They give you options to choose your pixel size, add in your own .png files, alter backgrounds shapes and colors, add lines and shapes, flip or rotate images, etc. Plus, all these features are absolutely free! I've designed hundreds of images for my business using Canva, saving me thousands. Love this App, 5 stars for sure! Btw, don’t forget that you have to use the website for most design functions, but you can view your work easily within the app.
I Love Your App!!
by Ashley :):):) on 2018/12/10 06:40
This app is a brilliant app that I’ve used for a little more than three months now, at least I think it’s been more than three months, LOL. Even if the photos that cost money are the ones that I’ve wanted, I could still find much similar ones on the internet so I could download them onto Canva, so please DON’T change that. 😂 I enjoy making book covers and the other things provided on there, but I wish you would at least make some of the photos free, because sometimes I just can’t find similar ones. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I hope you will continue attracting more viewers to your app! :)
great if you have no issues
by jnasrah on 2019/03/27 20:38
this app is fantastic for designs and stuff, however it has the absolute WORST customer service if you have any issues or questions. they take 5+ days to respond (AT LEAST 5+ days, sometimes you won't even get a response) to any sort of question, which is ridiculous considering it's an app made for designers who work primarily on deadlines. not only do they take forever to respond, they're honestly not very helpful when they do. half the time the designs save blurry, unless you go save it as a pdf and then go to another app and convert it to a jpg (this is what the customer service said to do - a ridiculous amount of steps to save your design). it's a bummer cuz everything else about this app is great, but it's incredibly frustrating so pack your patience
Canva, where I’ve you been all my life?!
by Olivegreenbranch on 2018/10/15 00:03
This app is amazing! It is compatible with my phone, IPad and computer and makes it very easy to continue being productive even when I am on the go. There are free and paid-for elements/ components or you can upload your own. I used to make all my flyers from scratch on MS Publisher and it was time consuming. This is way more user friendly including ready made prototypes that can be saved and altered in various ways- swap out pics, change text, toggle between a myriad of fonts for just the right one, move the layout around, change out color schemes, change transparency levels or tweak the tint of a picture. You can also copy whole documents and alter the new copy to a new version. The biggest plus is that you can pick the format of your medium you are creating: choose the template for flyer, poster, etc., etc. ...(I usually make posters so I can’t recall all of the formats, but there are lots!) The biggest plus: free account. Also, can be set up to share with coworkers.
