Can I use Canva designs in a mobile app for iOS or Android?

This depends on what elements you used in your design, and how you plan to use it. If your designs use only elements you uploaded and created yourself (i.e. your own photos and drawings), then yes, you can use the design in a mobile app or any other purpose.

Note: Images found online belong to their copyright holders, and cannot be used without their permission.

If you use any elements from Canva's image library, even free elements, you may be able to use your design depending on the purpose. Your designs are subject to Canva's One Time Use License Agreement. In summary, the license allows the use of Canva designs for electronic publication (like an app), but not as part of a logo or template. Canva designs also cannot be used in adult content or political endorsements.

Remember to consult the License Agreement to make sure using a Canva design in your app is permitted.

 

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out to us, I'd be glad to clarify this with you!

Whether you are permitted to use Canva designs in a mobile app or not is dependent on the elements used in your design, and how you plan to use these elements.

If your designs use only elements you uploaded and created yourself, such as your own photos and drawings, then yes, you can use the design in a mobile app or for any other purpose. But remember: images found online belong to their copyright holders, and cannot be used without their permission.

I hope this makes it clear, please do not hesitate to reach out for any further questions you may have!
