- Some commenters noted that they would like to use deviantART to log in to other apps, similar to how one can access SketchBook Pro or the Madefire Motion Book Tool with a deviantART account.
- dA-Hobo suggested that some deviants would like to be able to easily share their artwork to their other social pages from the Submit page as they submit it to deviantART.
