New and improved! theCHIVE iPhone App coming soon…

chive iphone New and improved! theCHIVE iPhone App coming soon...
Attn Chivers:

We are in final stages of approvals with Apple to re-launch theCHIVE iPhone app. The original CHIVE app was not built by us, nor was it controlled by us. It had a lot of glitches/crashed quite a bit and was a poor reflection on theCHIVE brand.

We have finally re-built a new and improved CHIVE app that will be launching SOON. There will be two versions launching, theCHIVE Lite and CHIVE Pro. theCHIVE Lite will be free and be ad supported. CHIVE Pro will be $.99 and will be ad free AND include video.

This is NOT an update, it is a completely new app so if you have downloaded the old app, you will want to permanently delete this from your iPhone and iTunes.

Thanks for your patience and Chive On!

-John and Leo

PS We are considering building a CHIVE app for Android and we are looking for a good Android developer so if you are one or know of one, please email us at thechiverules[at]gmail[dot]com.

    Iphone has an app but not android? jeez Chive.

    • Maytrix

      Who needs an App? I can browse just fine from my phone – just wish the pictures weren't so reduced in quality.

      • absolutcarcrazy

        Agreed. I think the only useful feature would be a notification of new posts. And maybe an ability to send in pics from the phones, straight to the authors. They probably already have plenty of people in line to make this app for free.

      • robert

        Use Pulse, and just add in the feed. Shows just fine on there.

    • John

      look at 99% of all the pics of the women on this site, they have an iPhone!!!!!!

    • snoobs89

      yeh looking at post's is easy on android. the only thing missing is the comments

  • sheoncebelieved

    why discriminate against the Droid?

  • bag

    yeah get that android app going asap

  • AjJay

    because iphone is a far superior product

    • GGG

      iSheep to the rescue.

      • Noidios

        iPhone is like the Jitterbug phone in my grandma's purse. It's for those that are technologically challenged and only need basic features.

        • Greg

          I always laugh when i see the hatred of the iPhone from android people. It's really so funny.

          For the record, every android owner I know does nothing but complain about their phone…

    • O.G.

      you must be joking

    • duh

      Way to go troll!!!

      Cue the Android vs Apple fanboy wars!!!

      FLAME ON!!!

      Stuff White People Like, #40 Apple Products

      It is surprising that it took all the way to #40 to call out Apple products. Initially, we were planning for an entire week on Apple products, but that would just be over kill.

      Plain and simple, white people don’t just like Apple, they love and need Apple to operate.

      On the surface, you would ask yourself, how is that white people love a multi-billion dollar company with manufacturing plants in China, mass production, and that contributes to global pollution through the manufacture of consumer electronic devices?

      Simple answer: Apple products tell the world you are creative and unique. They are an exclusive product line only used by every white college student, designer, writer, English teacher, and hipster on the planet.

      You see, a long time ago Apple’s were super popular among layout artists and graphic designers. Then Apple released Final Cut Pro and became the standard for film editors. As a result, lots of creative industries used Apple computers instead of PCs. Eventually, people started making the connection, and all of a sudden all white people need to have a Mac.

      When you ask white people about Mac’s they will say “oh, it’s so much better than Windows,” “it’s just easier to use,” “they are so cutting edge,” and so forth. What’s amazing is that white people NEED to meet people who use Windows to justify themselves spending an extra $500 for a pretty looking machine.

      It is also important that white people are reminded of their creativity, and remember you need a Mac to creatively check email, creatively check websites, and creatively watch DVDs on planes.

      White people also need iPods, iPhones, Apple TV, AirPort Express stations, and anything else that Apple will produce. Because you need to express your uniqueness by purchasing everything that a publicly traded company produces.

      Apple products also come with stickers. Some people put them on their computer, some people put them on windows, but to take it to the pinnacle of whiteness, you need to put the Apple sticker in the rear window of your Prius, Jetta, BMW, Subaru 4WD Station Wagon or Audi. You then need to drive to a local coffee shop (Starbucks will do in a pinch) and set up your apple for the world to see. Thankfully, the Apple logo on the back will light up! So even in a dark place, people can see how unique and creative you (and the five other people doing the exact same thing) truly are!

      Knowledge of Apple products can be useful in a number of social situations. If you see a white person with a Mac, an easy way to approach them is to say “Is that a Powerbook? What OS do you have?” They will happily start talking to you, after the requisite five minutes, you can invite them to an 80s night.

        Wall of text crisis for 9000……..

      • Julian Flynn

        I refuse to read that much on my day off

      • SffS_MC

        You Sir,

        Are a fucking smartass.

        But the truth is the truth.


    • Malkintosh22

      Android is NOT superior to iPhone for this reason. Nearly everyone develops the iPhone app much earlier to the Android app. Both OS' are great, but the iPhone has far superior content and support. Maybe your iOS hate would be taken seriously if you had at the very least one stellar argument in your favor instead of "iphone sux".

      • Randy Gallegos

        free market base VS a proprietary corporate suck hole of a company. there really is no argument. if you enjoy being spoon fed then apple is great for you, if you enjoy being able to use a phone to its FULL capabilities, and having access to ANYTHING you want, then android is and will always be the way to go. also, there is no app you can name on the iPhone that i cant get on my Android (2.2)

        • Malkintosh22

          Well done. You actually made a coherent argument to be taken seriously.

        • Kevin

          pretty soon the chive app will be one that iOS has and you dont. And for you people that watch phillyd, the iphone app wins.

          I am a former android user and now use the iphone. I fucking love it. its smooth, its fast. I have not had a single "force close" on my iphone. There are tons of apps that iOS has that Android doesnt. Not to mention how much better they run. Its so much nicer now that I dont have to wonder if an app is made specifically for my phone, or whether my carrier allows it. No more fragmentation of OS versions either.

          When I had my Android phone i was always rooting and updating ROMs and kernels just to get enough speed to run certain apps. No more. It just works.

          I dont mean to hate on Android. I love them. But I love iOS too. Theyre both great. For now, I'll stick with iOS…..until the Nexus 3 comes out.

        • Brandon

          how about theChive

    • HurDur

      Hey, your douchebag is showing

  • danimal

    Screw IPhone!!! Make an android app asap.

  • John

    How about some Blackberry love?

    • AGM

      Let us know when you decide to join us in 2011.

      • John

        Ah yes, very intelligent…..doesn't change the fact that I'd like to see an app on my phone. What is wrong with an app on all platforms? Us BB users like to FAP out an about like the rest. 🙂

        • Selmy

          Who the fuck still uses a blackberry?

          • douche


    • JM-II

      I guess Blackberry has been rendered obsolete and will no longer be produced…to bad…for you.

      • AndroidOpenMinded

        Blackberries are always going to be in the mobile phone market selling their products to companies that want a phone which is business – orientated. That is why some companies give their employees a Blackberry, so they can quit screwing around playing doodle jump or Angry birds lite on androids and iphones. Sure the new bb app store can make it possible to download these apps too, but the program focuses on sending e-mails, texts and recieve calls. If i would be handed a blackberry and i didn't have access to the app store, the most recreational activity i would do would be Sudoku.

  • Droid

    I get the feeling that iPhone users aren't interested in FLBP or Sexy Chivers, if you catch my drift.

  • Gern Blansten

    Make sure it's iPad happy. The old app looked like dog squeeze on the iPad.

    As of iStuff v. Droid, it comes down to market. There is more revenue being generated for iStuff right now…..

    • KeyserSoze

      dog squeeze, classic. thanks for the laugh.

  • Jesus Enzo

    Thank god my iphone is jailbroken. i dont wanna pay for a shitty app ever again. this better be worth the whole $1 i wont be spending.

    • Thomas Hall


    • $$$

      lol aww did u waste a dollar?

  • freeloader

    so…… too bad Chive guys are about the benjamins….
    changed my opinion of the site a bit, thought you guys were for the free world….
    not so, just like the rest of the money ruled world.

    • DistractedIndividual

      I agree! 99cents to too damn high! It's just too DAMN high…. :p

      • Juke Ned

        do you ever shut up?

        • DistractedIndividual

          I could ask the same of you.

          • ROIF

            That's the first time I've seen him(and he hasn't even responded), and roughly the 1000th I've seen you. I'd say he's got the winning point here.

            • Randy Gallegos

              she's a welcomed member of the community while he (and you) are both tools.

    • absolutcarcrazy

      my dog and I need to eat…….

    • AGM

      because I'm sure whoever programmed the app did it for free…

      • huh

        Why the fuck would anyone need an app in the first place? The site loads and works just fine on my mobile browser. Seems like a waste of timeeffort.

        • Randy Gallegos

          the image quality on the mobile browser BLOWS. if that were fixed, then i agree no app needed. but unfortunately all the images look like they were shot with a 1967 polaroid on mobile.

    • Endo

      And b/c John and Bob and the gang have so much spare cash that they sit around all day screwing off purely for our entertainment.

    • pat

      still pretty beat if they're charging again even if you bought the original app

  • Ebiggz

    PLEASE, somebody hook them up with an Android developer!!!!

  • saltygary

    Fuck the iPhone.

  • @meccep

    how about android app?

  • absolutcarcrazy

    whats wrong with the on android? seems that wordpress has done a pretty good job with that. If not, i can make the android app!.

    • huh

      I was just saying that above. I have no problem using on my android phone. I din't really see a need for an app.

    • Dude

      Please do!

    • Maytrix

      I agree! They just need to not reduce the quality of the pics so much and have a version for tablets with full size pics. I tend to adjust my browser on my android tablet to view as the full site – works fine and looks much better.

      • Brad

        Yes! Please make an android app! I would love to have notifications and a more streamlined way to view the pictures in high quality.

    • Plastilina_Ve

      Rock it, son! Tab friendly, pleaaaase 😉

    • snoobs89

      the onyl criticism i could make about would be i cant use intense debate when i comment!

  • Allenavw

    Please do an Android app Chive!! I would use it everyday.

    • duh

      And twice on Hump Days!!!!

      • Allenavw

        Only the best day of the week!

  • Brian


  • BrYaN

    What about the blackberry’s??… Would be a sweet app for us Berry users too! Especially now that I can’t access internet at work!:(

    • Randy Gallegos

      is there even a BB out with a screen size worth it?

  • j22

    Android plz

  • Mike

    Android > iOS. period.

    • Matt

      WP7> Android > iOS

      well okay once Mango update comes out that is.

  • KalEl24

    the Android App needs to happen… look at these comments… the Chivers have spoken, and they all the loud people have Droids…

  • Dum Ocrats

    Apple is for fags and liberals. They like to be controlled and told what to do so apple is perfect. Having the freedom that comes with droid is too much 4 their brains to handle.

  • Bob Sinclair

    iPhones are for hiptsers. Android is for Chivers. Make it happen Chive.

    • Steve

      I beat a hipster with my iPhone the other day.

  • duh

    Android app!!!


  • Aaron

    How about an app for Windows Phone 7?

    • Musje83

      Hells yea! WP7 is gonna take over. Future proof!

      • jlopezane

        WP8 will take over, WP7 is a nice start.

    • Skyler

      People have that?

  • snocone90

    hey everyone lets learn to read, they said they are looking for a good Android developer, so give them a good android developer and you'll have your droid app.
