Update: Suuuuper invasive app. I'm getting spammed with pop up ads now that reflect my amazon search history. Not cool at all. Knock it off! Videos won't play on Android phones. Just a black screen and if the last thing in a gallery is a gif, it won't play. Always something wrong with this app. Frustrating.
Okay, I've enjoyed the humourous content from the chive for a long time. Buuuut this app is relentlessly redirecting me to the Google Play store to download apps I don't want and am not interested in, it is one thing to put ads in, it is a whole other thing to redirect me. I've uninstalled this now, you guys can sit on it.
Garbage! Used to be on the chive every day. Now it's either pay us $5 for add free or we ruin your experience. I know it's only $5 bucks but seriously? Who is your marketing director Ajit Pai?
Loved the app until all of the redirects to the app store and most recently to chrome and the "your phone is infected" page. *10/2 EDIT* Haven't had the redirect issue lately. Bumping up from 1 star to 4, but leaving the original review to note that there's been the issue. 5 stars if the problem doesn't come back. Great content, love the Chive. *11/11 EDIT* invasive ads that redirect to malware are back, so back to 1 star. Also having loading issues with gifs if it's the last one in a post. *12/5 EDIT* Invasive ads appear to be fixed.
Great content, unfortunately constant crashes. Too bad. I can get though about 3 or 4 posts and it locks up every time
Not sure what happened in the last couple of months, but as I was digging around my apps for hidden data hogs, I've found that this app has used over 5GB of background data since November 3rd. What the hell is up with that? I love the content in The Chive, but there isn't an app in the world that should use that much data.
Just a quick bug fix - nothing to see here. Move along
