App Reviews

  • HATE the Updated iPad App

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

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

    By -ˋˏ Berri ˎˊ-
    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
    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.
  • SO frustrating

    By AshlanMarie
    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.
  • Great for all of my projects!

    By Loveliest 13
    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
    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.
  • It was great before but now....

    By nejdufuchch
    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.
  • Update is horrible

    By Rmledso
    Ever since the update when I open my work, it loads ALL wrong, elements will be botched looking, the incorrect colors, missing layers.. just SUPER messed up. So I’ll have to close out a reload it like three times. Once it loaded properly I started creating my slideshow project and when I took a break for a couple hours and cane back, not only was it loading all messed up again but when I tried to look at my other slides it froze and then the entire app crashed. I thought I’d have more luck on my phone but it did the same stuff. Now with it doing all this I’m afraid I’m going to lose all my hard work that took days to get right! Please fix it because I really do love this app when it’s functioning properly. Not to mention it won’t allow me to work horizontally anymore which is kind of a big deal for my setup.
  • The new upgrade is garbage on my iPad

    By shear madness
    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.
