Current version stinks and is a memory hog!
This app starts off as a very small app but quickly grows to use 2-3 GB in memory. There is no option to downsize it it's cache, you just have to delete. In order to see certain categories you're forced to login. So dumb and it hacks me off they force you to create an account. The sole purpose is to send you crap via email. Add the current chive app version to the FAIL category. Now they have annoying commercials that auto play audio and video while you're browsing the pics. Ok, fine, I know money has to be made. The problem is even when you stop the video, it restarts in 4-5 seconds. So I now have to stop it 4-5 times per catagory and the ads are glitchy. The best app in the world has now become the most annoying. Most recently the videos are not watchable. I'll get one commercial, then it will go strait to another one skipping the video I want to watch. No way around this issue, The kicker is this app crashes CONSTANTLY. its random when it does but it's an every day event. I think its time for the chive app to be removed from my phone.
Many editors, not enough editing
As much as I enjoy the content this app and what this organization provides, the grammar and conventions are lacking in a published site. It's understood when using slang like the adorable "doggos" and other slang, but "let's be hone" passes when it should be "let's be honest." Proper use of "your" and "you're" is ignored. There's many, and I mean I could find errors in ALMOST every post. And please choose either the British spelling or the American spelling of words. It appears that there's a bunch of frat boys running this outfit and it really should be polished. I say this, because I care, and I want what it best for theCHIVE. If I didn't care for your polish and your best, I wouldn't say anything. But I do. If you want to hire me as a consulting editor, I'm good with that. The workload would be grievous and deadlines would be knocking, but I believe everyone appreciates a polished work.
Little disappointed still
I wrote a review a while ago and decided to update since I've noticed the same things have not changed. Do you guys have an editor? There are so many typos and grammar screw ups its annoying, as if no one re-reads a post before posting; making it seem less professional. The app still crashes every now and again but that's not a big deal. I've noticed pictures being reposted multiple times (not the best of the week or things like that) and some galleries are very stupid, the ones that usually have twice as many dislikes as likes or more are just horrible. Please try and fix these easy issues I love this app and the lifestyle that comes with KCCO.
