Canva, as a service, and in theory sounds wonderful. I’ve used it on my laptop and haven’t had any issues, and while it’s limited in the photo library, that’s ok because it lets you import pictures. However this app is so unusable and frustrating that I felt that I needed to go through the effort of coming here and writing a review. Not only do I have to start projects through Safari because the app doesn’t let me do that, but I also have to put up with the glitches and bugs of this app. If this weren’t required for school I would NOT use it. In fact, I’d rather painstakingly manually make my own design within photoshop than use this app; it’s terrible. Way too frequently it randomly deletes all the text I just typed, and I’m constantly pressing the undo button to fix that, but even there there’s about a seven second delay between me pressing undo and something actually happening. Also, you’re better off using heavily watermarked included pictures than importing your own, it’s like this app is designed to fail if you import anything. The entire design will turn white or just suddenly delete if you try to resize or move any imported pictures and I just don’t see why it has to be like that.
TL;DR- This app is really buggy, and almost feels like it’s designed to fail (randomly deletes text, glitches w/ most pictures, and has severe lag with the undo button)
Best social media image editor ever! 5/5
I use this to create perfect instagram and Facebook images for my Ads. I couldn't do near as much without it. I love it.
Excellent Tool! 5/5
By Ace the Mad Rapper
This app is an amazing value. For those of us who aren’t naturally creative in design and art who might want to have something done for promoting an event, idea or just sharing on social media this is an excellent app. Highly recommended!
By Texas girl07
I like the app. It helps bring my work to life
I love this app!!!
Very nice and organized app! 5/5
Canva is the best! There are many templates to choose from. I like how they have Facebook and Instagram. Without Canva, my businesses Facebook and Instagram would be SUPPERRR boring... the only bad part is, whenever using it on a Mobile device, it’s some times freezes. It never freezes on their website...
This app is GREAT 5/5
By Love Squishy
I only just downloaded it today but I have used it several times and I feel so excited...like I found one of the secret good ones.
It lets you do lots of things all for FREE. It’s is super easy to use. There are some paid options and I actually feel like trying them because they offer kind of all you need for free and don’t cram the hard sell down your throat. I appreciate that, it makes me WANT to buy stuff from them. I got it to make a banner for my eBay store, which I did and it’s awesome, they also offer options for Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or customize your own, you can make posters flyers and business cards as well I highly recommend
I really enjoy this app! I am able to create many wonderful covers and posts on the desktop! I just wish the interface for the phone was as easy to navigate as it is on the desktop.
Blank slate! THANK YOU!!! 5/5
By Hahn dan
I love this app, and that just made it that much better! Bravo!
Great concept but... 1/5
The app tends to crash without saving your progress. I would recommend using it on a computer maybe, if you have a lot of patience.
Absolutely Amazing 5/5
By Realty with Ruben
I am a Realtor and I was finding it hard to get exciting or creative templates for marketing pieces. Canva is hands down the best program to use. It is easy, user friendly, and cheap! Highly recommend to anyone needing a place to design something creative!
The app keeps crashing when I open projects I’ve started on the desktop browser app
Amazing app 5/5
By top tier usa
I love this app.
So easy to use. Many options to choose from to individualize your own graphic.
Continually Crashes on iPad 1/5
Cannot get anything done on my iPad. Within 10 sec of designing, the app crashes. Very inconvenient.
Well done 5/5
By Caleb B.
Awesome app, I love it!
Great but iPhone app needs one thing! 4/5
I love this app but I want one thing and I want to have freeform editing of Pictures from my camera roll. I know I can do it on an iPad but when I need to do quick edits or creations. Once it has this feature its a definite 5 stars. :)
I cannot switch between teams within the app. The default view is a team other than mine, and cannot switch to my own, making the app somewhat useless to me. I am forced to only design on Desktop. Am I missing something, or is there a way to toggle between teams in the app?
Love the website, the app gets annoying 2/5
I was introduced to the website by my friend and I loved it. I used it for everything. Then I saw you have an app, and I immediately downloaded it, thinking it would be just as awesome. A few things are annoying, that it doesn’t work on data for one, also I will be working on something, it will suddenly crash, and those last few things won’t save. I also wish it had more of the aspects of the website, like backgrounds, etc. I keep using it, then getting frustrated, and going back to the computer.
Easy to use! 5/5
By Jessie Gg pls take this name
I am not great at creating flyers. This site made it easy. So grateful to have it available to use!
Good app! 4/5
I enjoying using this app on the road but always get back to the desktop version whenever possible.
So far so good 5/5
Loving this app so far. My only issues are: I don’t see the templates on the app like I do on the site and I’ve tried using the FB cover but it does not fit my page. I could be doing something wrong when I upload the photo but these are my issues thus far. At times the app does have a glitch where when I try to delete something I’ve done in my designs it pulls up the one before to delete vs the one I clicked on. Aside from these small issues I love using the app. Love the options/designs. Makes using it for my mums business that much easier. So happy I found the app.
Best app ever put on the iPhone and I had the original on up 5/5
By teacher's mom
Seriously, I can create for hours upon hours! I’m an artist and trying to get on Pinterest then Etsy then on my own. I was sitting with my daughter who is brilliant, not bragging but I was so excited to share this app with her. She is 20 with a semester to go and she has used this app all the way through her college years. Her words “Brilliant”! This was a two recommended app, both 5 star!!! Keep adding and I’ll keep spreading the word! Over 25 years made it on word of mouth, love to do the same! Thanks to you ( you all)! Keep getting better!!!!
It's real. And it's good. 5/5
I love canva. I have used it for so long now, mostly through my job and of course free form at home. I was soooo excited when it became an app. And I LOVE the app. It's a bit more limited than the desktop, but with each update, the improvements surpass my expectations. My only comment would be to create a template size for iPhone backgrounds? Or phone background images in general! I love creating backgrounds for friends and family and myself. I always make them with measurements that work relatively well, but I always end up cropping and it takes away the beauty of my art sometimes. I still give 5 stars. Always will. But that's what I think would be cool to see! Great work Canva creators!!

Canva is Pure Genius! 5/5

It’s great 5/5
I really enjoy using both this app and the online versions to make posters. It really helps with my job as a PR officer for my student senate.
Love It...just needs to be faster 3/5
I absolutely love this app!!! It’s helped me make different types of flyers and other things for my church events. But the only thing is that the app is very slow and takes awhile to save my changes...also the app kicks me out every few minutes...this app would be SO much better if it would be up to speed.
Designs look cheap 1/5
This doesn’t get you high-end looking, high resolution files like you can make in Adobe CC. These are just templates like you see in a kids’ Instagram app
Love canva 4/5
I love using canva!! I just wish the app had the same features as the website!!

I’m a big fan! 5/5
Female in my 40’s and technology doesn’t come easy. This app, wicked easy to work with! Thank you
Prepare for the Glitch 1/5
The computer version of this program is amazing, especially if you’re not keen on design, so I was so excited when they came out with the app over a year ago. Well, I’ve been more than patient waiting for them to fix their glitches. If you want the app to freeze after you’ve spent time making a design, awesome! Want it to save completely distorted from how you designed it? This one is for you! How about not save at all? Just stall in the process of saving? Yup, download now!
I am so sick of wasting my time on this app. Boo!
Really fun 5/5
Love to create hear
As somebody who uses Wattpad to write books, I have to have a good cover. This is the perfect app for that, and it’s even better on the computer. Thank you guys a lot for making this! You all deserve the wonderful support.
Crashing on the iPhone X 4/5
I just installed it on my Phone, your latest release on the latest iOS to date (15.01.18) App opens well but crashes when I try to view any design.
Editing issues 3/5
Clicking on things to change can be very difficult at time... it takes forever
Canva is great 4/5
Could use a better way to search for images
