Entertaining but app has issues

I would call myself a typical middle-aged guy... The typical follower. The content speaks to me considerably but I believe the editors have a major bias towards what I would call obese women. Or the photos have been photoshopped to make women appear grossly miss-shapen. Obvious and ridiculously miss-shapen. Most women featured are amazing.... from the bellybutton up but below that some sort of unnatural phenomenon is at play. They suddenly appear (from the bellybutton down) to be possible entrants to “my 600 pound life”. The fine folks at the chive must admit the major bias to that “look” is trying to appeal to us but the editors are completely out of touch of what the majority finds attractive. I’m “PC” enough to believe anyone should be featured but biasing towards obesity is not healthy... or cool. Don’t glamorize obesity. You are helping Mcdonald’s, not women’s health. PLEASE stop featuring women that appear to be standing in front of a fun-house mirror. It is soooo grotesque and desperate on the women’s part. Most of us guys don’t want them thinking they need to look like that. We chivers believe in reducing anxiety but glamorizing a COMPLETELY unnatural look (and unappealing) won’t help our female followers. Further, your app (and only your app) makes my phone over-heat and drains my battery rapidly, what’s up with that?
Good day to you. I SAID GOOD DAY!

The Old Chive is gone... and it’s sad.

As a long time Chiver, I have bought hundreds of dollars worth of Chive merchandise, donated plenty to their charities, enjoying their website for many years, and was thrilled when the first app appeared. I have always enjoyed the content... funny and uplifting threads, cat Saturday (where’d that go?), cute girls, interesting knowledge, comical gifs, interesting talent, and a general collection of everything you want to see online without all the crap and politics. Changes and updates to the app made some versions tough, but the Chive always redeemed themselves with fixes and better content. Until now.

Every update is greeted with more ads, more merchandising, and so many more crashes... all with less true Chive content. And their only solution is to sell me an overpriced subscription that includes a coin, fewer ads, and random discounts from their store... golly gee, mister, wow that’s awesome....

I’m quite sad this will be the last month I’ll suffer through the frustration, as I feel the Chive served me greatly through the years and has ultimately let me down. As I delete the app, I can’t help but wonder if those two brothers even care anymore.

Probably the worst app in the world

They literally punish you with the whole “Probably the best app in the world” tag line on the screen every time you go back to the old well and try to enjoy ya some Chive. Nobody will argue that the content and the people are anything but awesome. But the complete failure to even muster a half hearted effort at providing an app that even works at a mediocre level is astonishing. You can google it yourself and see nothing but an avalanche of complaints and comments from almost every person on the planet who has used the app and it’s an utter dumpster fire. It never works. Can’t open images or gifs. Crashes almost every time. It literally is almost self-defeating to even try to open it. You just want some DAR or memes or some crap and somehow you find yourself angry, disappointed, and borderline enraged by the time you’ve reloaded the app 4 times to try to see the freakin pics on a juicy thread or post. Save yourself the agony and just bookmark the Safari link to the Chive online. Trust me you’ll be thankful. Or if you are the kind of person that loves standing in line to find out they sold the last item to the person in front of you, or arriving at your favorite restaurant to find out they are closed that day, or opening up your one present on Christmas morning to find it is an empty box and a cruel joke.....well, then download the app and you’ll be repeatedly abused.
