Ive been using this app going on 4 years and I loved it. Never had a complaint. I understand that there has to be ads in order to make money but as of late the phone just opens upp the playstore as im browsing the galeries this happens more and more as i browse. This is malware not advertising. I know its not my phone because im not the only one having this issue. I dont mind the occasional ad as Ive said but the last few days have become rediculously intrusive, and that I mind. Please fix this. Thanks
Love theChive, but the app is starting to go seriously downhill because of ads. The one at the bottom doesn't bother me. It's the fact that I will be scrolling through a post and suddenly for no reason, the app loads up my browser and forces me to a bs ad. As if the random full screen Chive product ads weren't annoying enough. (I tolerate those since it is for Chive products) but seriously? Opening my browser and backgrounding the chive app for an ad? Get out. Fix this and you'll get 5 stars.
Use to really enjoy this app, was a loyal Chiver for 4-5yrs. I never minded their own pop adds, but this new pop up add that opens my Web browser, no close button, no go back button, I feel as if my phone has mal wear. This is complete and total bs! You can't tell me that the chive isn't doing well enough that they have to resort to this kind of add campaign. So did they sell out, do they just care about money? Or did they not know what they were getting into? Any way I'm uninstalling.
The new layout is awesome. I do not have to wait for pictures to load each time I swipe to them. They all load easily and quickly. It does not crash anymore. They do put most items on the app anymore, and the ads are a good amount. Some of the content has gotten repeated and bland.
I guess it couldn't last forever, you lose that star because you've again released a version with numerous app-killing bugs. A new album upload will reliably crash it; after years, this bug persists. Downloading an image crashes the app about 3 out of 4 times, and then sometimes it just crashes without user involvement. Fix the crashes, then we can talk about features.
Devours data since the new layout came about. Ok app, but uses probably 3 GB a month checking it maybe 3 or 4 times a day at work. I'm thinking it loads full quality images as thumbnails. Never used to! Update: Android app randomly opens the Google play store for game app ads. Not just one, like 10 at a time. Without clicking on any ads, just scrolling. Basically unusable at this point as fighting 10 pop-up ads every 30 seconds is impossible.
