theCHIVE iPhone App is back!

That’s right, theCHIVE iphone App is finally available for download! Thank you for your patience. They slapped every single adult-content warning in the book on us, but it finally made the cut.

We are offering a ‘Lite‘ advertisement-supported app with no video for free and a $.99 ‘Pro‘ version with zero adverts and video!

If you have the OLD Chive app, please delete this from your iphone and iTunes library as it has been disabled and will no longer work and download the new app. This is not an update, it’s a new app.

Click HERE to download the free Lite version. Click HERE to download the $.99 Pro version.

-the categories may seem a little unpopulated for now because we started feeding posts to the iphone just last Friday. As we post more on the live site, the iPhone’s posts will continue to grow.
-HQ galleries finally work! –
-Sorry, gifs are still static (not our fault, blame Apple)
-Both Lite and Pro apps double as iPad apps as well. They automatically adjust to larger, full size images and are not simply tiny iPhone apps running through an iPad.

theCHIVE Android app is being developed right now and will be available soon. -Chive on!

    Android App Please.

    Edit: Sorry didn't see the small T&C-esque scribble in the bottom left corner…but still: Android App Please.

      I think his exact words the first time it was rejected were: "Over my dead body!"

  • Cavok

  • a fan

    congrats, Chive, I know it was a long time in the making. thanks for getting it done. the app looks great.

  • trent

    do GIFs and HD photos work?

    • VedHead77

      Only if you read the "Notes" section above first. Then they work.

  • foreman

    and it's actually… pretty damn good

  • All methed up

    Will GIFs work on either version

    • http://www.thechive.com Leo

      Unfortunately gifs do not work on either version. This isn't a glitch, Apple just won't allow it.

        I bet it'll work on the Android version!

  • jason b.

    just downloaded the Pro version. the video page is solid. they put some time into this i see

  • FunkMonkey

    What's different about the app vs the site? I can browse the site just fine on my android phone (haven't tried the embedded videos though, but other flash based videos work in Opera Mini, so…)

    • FunkMonkey

      o.0 Seriously, what's the app do that the site doesn't? I tried out the tom cruise video after posting this and it played in both windowed and fullscreen mode. Animated gifs work through opera as well, although the playback speed is a tad bit faster than it should be. Using a Google Nexus S with the factory loaded Gingerbread 2.3.4 and flash player 11 for those that may be curious.

        I concur: m.thechive FTW!

        Mobile site is decent but comments section sucks since all you see is referred numbers instead of the pics people are commenting on like on the computer. I'm hoping the app fixes that.

    • StaticFX

  • Verbal_Kint

  • therealguy

    .99?!?! I'll take 1 million!!!!

  • ChiverBU

    Dear Chive, many people use Android these days. So, a Chive Android app would be much appreciated. Let me rephrase that: DO IT! DO IT NOW!!

    • @bunkerpunkk

      Can you not read? Everything you commented on is in the fucking description. This is not just directed at you, but all the other simpletons above you as well.

      • ChiverBU

        Understand a comment before calling someone "simpleton". Keep calm…

  • Joe

    Downloaded the pro last night. The app works great! The videos are a huge plus!!

  • Alfred

    Pretty cool, just bought the Pro Version. Following TheChive for months, this is a great extra value!

    • HAHA

      Months? Newb…

      • Alfred

        Thanks 😉 lol

  • DaveK

    there goes all my productivity haha

  • Everyone sucks but me....

    Just ran to get the paid version, opened it up all excited and videos say ‘not authorised to view this file’ . Also gifs (as expected) dont work. I think fAir compensation would be a Bill Fucking Murry T-Shirt!
