Review from Jordon Gee
Buggy Constantly crashes, won't load, pictures don't load, gifs don't work, and keeps my volume on mute until I manually end the app through the galaxy s3 task manager.
Love The Chive, love the new app layout. Dont mind the ads because they have to make their money somehow. Since the latest update though I cannot for the life of me figure out how to view any comments and I cannot find anything anywhere about how to remedy that. Fix that for me or tell me what I am missing and you get five stars!
I really like this app. It's fun to browse all day long and it's really user friendly. However, since the major redesign/update back in January it sucks away at my data. I used to use about 1 gig/month with the app which is fine as it's the most used app on my phone. But since the update it used about 5 gigs/month. Not really happy about that. So I only give it 3 stars for that. If you guys can find away to reduce the data usage then I'd have no problem giving it 5 stars.
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
Long time user uninstalling. I used to really enjoy this app but the recent update inundates you with apps and advertisements on the play store. The chive used to be a grassroots group that would shamelessly donate to those in need. I find it hard to believe the same group of individuals would support services that interrupt their loyal chivers from reading heartfelt articles about service personnel and Harvey survivors coping with a 100 year storm to overlay some BS app advertisements. KCCO to what it was.
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.
New Review* App layout and speed is wonderful. Had to lower the rating from the insane ads applied to it now. If I click on a picture or link that doesnt go to the store, then I get nonstop popups that qreck my phone browsing. Have to close this app and start over everytime.
New features to lose your sh*t over:
* New category pages so you can easily see our more “interesting” sub-categories when your boss isn’t looking.
* We now support web embeds! Enjoy quizzes, tweets, instagrams, etc. in their natural glory.
* Performance improvements...because that’s what everyone else says.
* Fixed issue where deep links would sometimes fail.
* Fixed issue where a crash would sometimes occur when signing in/signing out.
* More protections from bad ads.
