I love it 5/5
My husband and I are big chive people. We send each other stories and pictures. Love the range of things that are put on here as well. A little bit of everything.
Freezes Constantly 1/5
You can't use the app longer than 10min without your entire phone freezing.
New app doesn't load pictures 1/5
Since the new update, the app only works with a wifi connection. I can have full bars with the LTE and the pics only load about half the time. Please fix so the app is usable again.
Great app! 5/5
Love the laughs!!
Chive is the shiznit 5/5
Love this app and publication!
Tennessee Phil 4/5
Great, except for video ads!
App no longer works 1/5
I remember back when this app wasn't overloaded with ads and the pictures actually loaded. Ahh the good old days...

Funny, sexy satisfaction!
Extremely buggy 3/5
The new update is incredibly buggy. Pictures take forever to start loading (some don't load at all), and half the time when in trying to scroll through the gallery, it keeps trying to swipe sideways instead and I can't scroll down at all to view the gallery. It's nearly unusable at this point
New 2.0 does not load anything! 1/5
The new 2.0 version is terrible. No pictures ever load! Waste.
Great app 5/5
Great app with great features.
Love it! 4/5
Everyone should have this. 5/5

This site is everything that the other reviews say it is. Love looking at it everyday!
Slow Slow Slow Crash 2/5
Gifs won't load, sometimes the app won't load at all. It's hit or miss if galleries are viewable.
Generally like the content. Pop up ads are very annoying and there are scam ads that line up in the feed. The worst is the fact that every once in a while the article you are looking at goes blank. Love to see that fixed so I don't have to restart it at times. Thanks.
Needs help 1/5
Ads play fine other content does not want to load or very SLOW

Werd, awesome! Chive On!!!
Love the CHIVE community, the mission - humor, hotness, and humanity!
Good, not great 3/5
Good app but lots of glitches. Always have to exit out and re-open for things to load properly.
I love you 5/5

This is the best part of my day.
Love Chive 5/5
I like a lot of the stories on the Chive
If you like to constantly watch ads get this app. Ads everywhere. Click a video...Ad starts. Half way through a video...Ad starts. Start the app...Ad starts. Just scrolling through the albums...boom more ads. Does chive really need the revenue from ads? This used to be a great app but now they're just being greedy. I don't mind an ad every once in awhile but I can't even enjoy this app with the amount of ads being shoved in my face. At this rate you'll have to buy their products in order to use their app.
Great site! 5/5

Interesting and tasteful!
For the love of God please get rid of the swipe horizontally to change gallery feature! I can't get through an entire gallery without it sliding to a new one, and if I swipe back to fast, it crashes.
Fun app 5/5
Usually reliable always entertaining! Love theCHIVE!
Houston we have a problem 2/5
Third party ads happen to frequently. The quality of the content and posts are declining as of late. Who the heck does the grammar and spell checking?! The number of errors on a professional site is ridiculous. Get with it, The Chive, or I'm leaving.
Needs to be fixed 2/5
Used to be my favorite time killing app but since last update it doesn't load half of the time and when a feature opens it takes a stupid amount of time to load pics or gifs. I open it daily hoping to see it fixed but still nothing. Very disappointing
Too big to fail 3/5
After a few years enjoying the app and most of all, the video content, I've noticed that they're selling too many ads. Every single video now I have to watch an ad. It smells like selling out. Before it was not that way. Love the Chive but hate what I'm smelling ;-)
Great content - Garbage app 3/5
Pics don't load, pop ups, no ability to in app purchase the adds away. I should be giving the app 2 stars but I like Chive Charities.
Chive on 5/5
Decent app. Great way to fill down time.
What can I say? 5/5
The Chive is awesome, but the app is much gooder👍🏾
The adds are getting a little ridiculous other than that good time waster
Great concept; Bad execution 1/5
If you update the app; you will get an app that does not load pictures and crashes. The older version was much more stable. It is frustrating to wait and wait and wait; only to have it crash.
If your motto is keep calm and chive on, please fix this completely irritation of an app.
Best time killer 5/5
Ads load quickly 1/5
By Don CarrotCake
Wonderful app, ads load so fast now, gallerys? thats another matter, at 3Mbs download, gallerys still take a few min to load, if at all. Comments are by far the most entertaining, because thats all you can get.
Highly reccomend using this app right before a tax audit, the audit won't seem so bad by comparison.
Always good for a laugh and cute ladies.
Great app 5/5
Very good topics
Video ad timing makes me unreasonably angry 2/5
I love this app and the community around it. However, recently they changed the video ads so that instead of playing at the beginning of the video (after which you can enjoy the video in its entirety) they grant you 15 seconds of video before an ad accosts you with all the grace and tact of unwanted, excruciating surprise butt sex. The interruption is so jarring and nefarious it sent me into a rage so consuming I blacked out and woke up a day later two states over in a stolen car with a half empty pack of cigarettes (I don't smoke) and a hooker named Ralph who tells me I owe him 2000 Canadian dollars. Took a lot of effort to clear up that mess- After which I needed to relax a bit. so i opened the Chive app again and tried to watch a cute video where a dog rescues a deer and it. Happened. Again. Only this time when i woke up i was in jail with a cast on my leg and Dora the Explorer tattoos covering my FACE. So F*ck you Chive. You just don't DO that to people. You don't interrupt the cute dogs or the funny moments or the awesome people doing awesome things with your ads. Play them first if you must, but cut that other sh*t out. That's all. Oh and Ralph says hi.
This is by far the best app. Always interesting topics and hours of fun everyday
Chive on! 5/5
Love me some Chive!!
Keep calm and love this app.
It gets me my daily chive.
The Chive 5/5
Is so dope...that is all
Good stories and beautiful women 4/5
Good stories and beautiful women
Chives on...but 4/5
How bout just one or two notifications a day?
Bring back the old app 2/5
This update is misses lots of pictures and the only way to get them is to exit clear the buffer and reload.
Gone Down Hill - Better Apps Out There 1/5
Used to love The Chive literally from the very early days. However recently updates have produced a picture viewing app that has a difficult time loading, you guessed it, pictures. So after all the years, moving on to not waste time waiting for pictures to load or the inevitable crash.
Everyone's gotta make money. I understand it, but trying to watch a video on he chives is like pulling teeth. The video plays for 5 seconds, then your hit with 15 second ads. Picture category's are good though.
