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.
This app never starts on the first try. Crashes all the time. Despite numerous updates over several years, including at least one major update, it's still trash. The content is good but not worth it, I've given up.
The app keeps on crashing after the new update. It was working fine before the update.
Videos don't work. Kinda annoying
The Videos finally work!!!!
Funny but also buggy as hell. Forgiven!

It would be much better if they include a "bulk downloading" option
While all the fun jokes & most beautiful & sexy women are here, it's a bit pointless when I get a link to look at a certain set of photos & the link just takes me to the main Chive page. How about you put down the beer for a minute & fix this issue because it has been happening for more than a while - about 3 years a while. And definitely enough to where I've considered deleting the app all together.
* sucks what they've done to this app rarely use it nowadays. This is a fun compilation of Internet photos and videos, user comments are usually more entertaining than the content itself. Also as a side note notifications still pop up on home screen even when disengaged...... and the app was better before the update
Used to be great. Still has awesome content I could blow hours on but for some reason heats my phone like no other, to the point I don't want to hold it after a few minutes. Videos and gifs used to not work at all, they do now but it's ad city to view anything on the app. Love the chive and it's vision, everything they do, would love to use the app. Also can't use Spotify while on the chive.
Crashes even more since update about %90 of the time the app stops running within first couple of minutes of it being open and 100% of the time when i try to scroll through my favorites. And it freezes alot when trying to scroll through the albums. Why are the most recent favorites at the bottom of the list? And no way to report it, u get sent to a page where u can write what the problem is but thats it there's no button or link to submit it.
My friend sent me an article and this thing forced me to download an app to read it. Then I tried to open it on my computer and it prompted me for a phone number so it could send a link to download the app. So now I'm installing then uninstalling an app just to read something and it'd be much simpler if it just sent me to a webpage in the first place.
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
The chive always has great content. Since the introduction of the new app though I've been unable to view any videos or gifs. I thought it was just incompatible with my Xperia z5. But a few months down the line and I've now got a p10 and went back to the app and still nothing works. Real shame.
My phone has been overloaded with pop up ads since I've downloaded your app. I understand the usual ads while scrolling, you need to get paid i get that. But you have a bug you need to figure out. I get more than one pop up at a time covering my screen while I'm just scrolling through your app.
Love the Chive app... Before they changed whatever they changed. There was a time when I would get a push notification for a suggested gallery, I would click on the notification, and it would take me straight to the gallery. Now it just opens the Chive app, and the suggested gallery is nowhere in sight. I search for it, and it never shows up. Fix it please.
Use to be a great app. Over time the ads are constant. The app gathers your browsing history across other apps and tries to sell you on products you search for. The ads will take over your screen and launch you to the affilated site. Content was always great but not worth ads or paying for it.
This website puts random fake "virus" pages that pop up every 20 seconds saying your system is affected. Its not true, but cant even navigate the site without those pop ups. They probably paid a company advertising for it UPDATE: None of the videos work now, just black screen. For an app, never seen so many bugs and issues constantly going unfixed.
Used to be great, now ads have taken over. The app lags pretty often even in good service areas due to advertisements trying to load in the back ground. Great content if you can stand to go through the constant click bait and pop up ads that send you straight to play store in a new window.
Greatest app available but...quit using it as it's such a battery drain and started using the website. It sucks also because of the constant barage of infected phone popups and the daily scam popup from Facebook which they seem to be dead against. Needs some serious overhaul. Also the constant legit ads are a pain.
Just a quick bug fix.
