Awesome in every single way 5/5
Crap App 1/5
I too live dangerously with an iPhone 5. Because of the latest update I am no longer able to view TheChive. Since I will not buy a new iPhone, I will miss all the latest babes, memes, and DAR.🖕
No more support 1/5
So this latest version won't let my iPad 4th gen update, saying it's incompatible. Come on, it's an app with pictures not some game that needs the latest and greatest processors to run.
Time to delete the Chive.
Great site 5/5
Best app you will ever download
App is subpar. The worst part is it caches every picture you ever look at, it was using 7.6 GB of storage on my phone... Unacceptable.
Ruined it 3/5
I only use my iPad in landscape mode, and the new version won't allow it. So long after two years of enjoying it. Also the new March update can't be downloaded cause it returns an error stating the chive is not compatible with my iPad. Till now it always has been.
Great pics, vids. App is glitchy at times...
Great App relax after a stressful day. 5/5
Always puts a smile on my face! Keep it up !
Great App 5/5
Tons of fun content, updates daily. So much fun that it can be one of the most time consuming apps on my phone. 😜
Quite entertaining. KCCO
By Zeke Monty
Fun app. Definitely waste time on Chive when I should be working, but the posts are hilarious, sexy, and fun. Informative too. I recommend it!
Memory hog on iPhone app almost 4gb! 1/5
Takes up massive amount of memory. 3.85G and counting! Check your phone and you will be shocked. Also. They are complete sellouts to advertiser. Even some features/galleries are really ads not articles or picture features. Used to good good community. Now just a money grubbing business.
This app would very quickly use up multiple gigs of memory, as thought it was storing everything you ever viewed in it. As there is no clear cache option, I would remove the app then reinstall when it got over 2.5 gigabytes. No I'm getting a message, when I try to reinstall saying that the app is not compatible with my iPhone. Chive is a great site, but their app is very frustrating.
Best App Ever 5/5
Wow, impressive job with this App. I look forward to it every morning. The humor! The intelligence. Makes for a great read to escape the world. Keep it up
Won't update 1/5
Says my iPad isn't compatible now, but every other app works fine. Clearly something isn't right.
Well heck 1/5
Well heck new update wont support iPhone 5. So removed app from phone no point have an app I cant update and not getting a new phone for an app.
Now this update won't load on my iPad, come on Chive get better programmers!
I paid $5 for the pro version and now the Chive is not going to continue it. Instead they've decided to only support this lousy version full of stupid adds so they can make more money. Not Chive Worthy!
It's all crap 1/5
By IT'S GOLF
Bunch of d bags who can't spell. Not compatible with iPad. If you think break is bad don't use this.
Much improved 4/5
The app is great. Greatly improved functionality over previous version.
More recently ads are coming up and they redirect you no matter what you click, have to shut down the app completely and restart it.
What happened 1/5
No longer compatible with iPad mini??? WTH
Bad ads that cannot be closed 3/5
App itself is good, usually pretty good content. But lately occasionally an ad for Lyft pops up THAT CANNOT BE CLOSED. The X in the right hand top is fake and just opens the app store to download the advertised app. Need to close and restart the Chive app to continue what I was doing. Very annoying to say the least.
Spend half the time closing ads 1/5
Had to delete it on my old phone because it was taking up too much storage. Got a new phone but I spent half the time closing ads. Poor form, chive, poor form. Probably won't be coming back a third time.
Can't update 1/5
"The Chive is not compatible with this iPad."
Great app 5/5
Awesome app well worth it to charge to get rid of the ads
Great content 4/5
By DC Grrrl
The content is consistently great. I regularly get sucked into "just one more". But very often I have trouble loading photos.
Tried to reinstall this app after deleting to free up some space on my iPhone4 and got the message "this app is incompatible with your iphone" please help any fixes are welcome
ads and more ads 1/5
By Don CarrotCake
34 meg app uses 5 gig of space
after yet another update:
more ads, really, why bother chive-go home and come back when you're sober
ads load much faster, everything else is
s l o w e r t h a n
b e f o r e.
while the charity is awsome, the rest is worthless, like this app give locally, not these clowns...
after an update.... ads you cant get out. and if its possible, slower than before. I think they've been bought out and they're fronting for some investment corperation. no company that cares about its customers puts out an app like this.
By OG asscrack
When I was little I dreamed of this app, now that it's here I can fap, fap, fap
What's going on ? 1/5
Will not let me update !
Awesome site. One that is visited daily, multiple times
Love it! The best app of all
Not compatible 1/5
Keeps saying not compatible with iPhone. Deleted the app and re-installed. Says its still not compatible. Junk app. Content was going downhill anyways. Doubtful if they even fix the issue I'll re-install it
Love chive but those ads 4/5
Happy the music can be played with the app now without those annoying video ads but I like the idea of charging, I would buy for no ads
By Paul Wehadababyitsaboy
Love this app. A lot of stuff to look at and it is just a lot of fun.
Ads are ruining an otherwise good app 2/5
I love the chive but the incessant need to include ads into every aspect of the app is getting out of hand. I get that you need to make money but now it's getting excessive. The fact that now my beloved chive has clickbait is what encouraged me to write this review. I'm really hoping that they remember that it is the community which makes the chive great, not the advertisers.
Best content on earth 5/5
The content is the best around and it's free. That cannot be overshadowed by some minor advertisements and app issues. Thanks Chive and keep up the great work!
Fix the share feature 4/5
By Camaro 45th
When you try to share a picture or a video, it sends a link to it to open the App Store to download the app. You should give it the option to send a web link so that someone without the app can view it in their browser.
What the hell?? 1/5
What's the deal with not being able to download onto my iPhone 5c????
Good app 4/5
I used to be so much more productive until I got this app. Now I am on it all the time! Great app! Only complaint I have is all the pop up ads.
You dropped my iPad! 1/5
The requirements may say OS 9.3 and later, but the update dropped my model of iPad - ipad2. Bummed, but I guess there is always the website.
#1 app 5/5
By Crippled avenger
Best app ever
Random ads 3/5
Great App, great content, the only disappointing thing is when you're in a gallery it will just randomly go to an ad for CRAP, not like a quick ad before a video but just garbage stuff. It is really annoying especially since I really like this app. I thought it was due to accidentally tapping the ad on the bottom of the page while scrolling through a post but nope. It will just activate while im half way through FLBP, DAR, or any post. Please fix this issue. It makes this app seem cheap.
Pop up ads everywhere!! 1/5
This new update is riddled with pop ups!!
Still interesting 3/5
Use to be better...not bad now, just not as good
How is less than 5 stars even an option here? 5/5
Says that the app isn't compatible with my iPad when I've had the app for the past 2 years. And it's worked up until this update. I have an iPad 4. Please fix!!!!!!!
App won't download 2/5
By Unhappy chivette
After trying to install the update it said iPhone isn't compatible. I uninstalled the app thinking I could reinstall it without an issue but I got the same error when I tried to reinstall it. Very unhappy currently!!
