It’s late and I’m a few Jack Daniel's into the evening here. Wanted to fill you in on a few things happening here at theCHIVE, specifically as it relates to our app(s).
I'm not spell checking htis.
Tomorrow we’re launching all new iOS and Android Apps. Our mobile development team hasn’t slept for weeks in an effort to bring this baby home so if you meet a brilliant kid named Eric Spielman at the bar this weekend, buy him a drink.
Since Apple launched iOS 8.1, crashing has been more of an issue with our existing app (across the app world in general, really). Those bugs are fixed and you’re free to enjoy a crash-free app moving forward.
Both new apps have some cool new features. First, you can now submit photos directly from your mobile phone. Original content on theCHIVE is about to hit record levels... so are sexy selfies, and I think we can be fine with both of these things.
Additionally, we’ve enabled a search gallery on the home scroll. Android is getting a menu bar so you can add favorites and view top-rated galleries (iOS you already have this).
As always, by creating a My Chive Account, you’ll have access to all the sexy galleries you want. But you have to log into My Chive for this privilege.
That’s about it from here, oh wait…
Unrelated Note: Yesterday, Bill Murray gave a rare candid interview to Howard Stern. Bill’s new film, St. Vincent his best film in a while, Bill's still got it. St. Vincent opens tomorrow. Howard Stern is masterful at getting some fantastic stories out of Bill and if you haven’t heard it, grab a beer and enjoy this interview.
Back to Jack Daniels. Thanks for enjoying the late night rambling.
p.s. Ok I just hit the launch codes on the new iOS and Android Apps (iOS here, Android here) but I scheduled this really cool post for tomorrow that took a lot of time to put together, lots of gaps and cleavage, so can we pretend like tomorrow is the super-official launch? I won't tell if you don't tell. Enjoy the new apps, Chivers.
Eric Spielman - sorry, I owe you a beer. I'll be in the comments for a spell if you have any questions. Ask away.
Halloween is right around the corner and, once a year, we release a set of brand new Halloween designs. This year is easily the most creative set we’ve ever launched.
Only the famous Chiver at Heart returns but we’ve made some cool enhancements - it’s reversible to a Zombie Bill Murray. (I can’t wait to see how creative our FLBP Chivettes get with that one).
The Black-on-Black Keep Calm fucking glows in the dark! Ah, the nostalgia.
Also, if you scour the Haunted Bookcase in the footer there, you may find some other spooky surprises.
Let’s get to it!
