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 biggest supporter of ONLYFANS!

This was a really great app. Had a lot of interesting stuff on here but a lot has disappeared. Now it’s filled with what I like to call ads. Yes there are ads that you’re forced to watch but these are mandatory ads even though I’ve supported them by buying merchandise. I get it, it’s all about the money now and NOT about the content. Buy this, buy that, oh look more cool stuff to buy. You know people are broke right? This app has also started to support every girl on ONLYFANS. Wanna find who has an ONLYFANS page?, come find it in the Chive! I get it, people want money but they're not getting my money... again people are broke. There are too many places to find free naked woman and why would anyone pay for this? Go get a real job!

Also, when the app starts, it shows “the Chive...probably the best app in the world”. Not close. These guys copy and paste a lot of stuff from Reddit. Come on Chive, you guys are better than this. I can easily just go to Reddit if that’s the case. There’s so many people that submit cool, interesting, and hot pics but it’s easier to copy from Reddit? What’s the point of iChive if you rarely use it?

And not to mention, if you open any other app, let’s say text message, weather, email or what not... the chive app will restart. This is beyond ANNOYING. I don’t want to scroll to where I was all over again and forced to watch another ad just because the stupid app restarted.

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.
