TheChive: Quick App Review (Keep Calm and Chive On)

December 16, 2011 1 Comment

It’s funny that I frequently use this app but I have never mentioned it on this site. TheChive which claims to be probably the best site in the world launched their Windows Phone app months ago and they didn’t hesitate to go Mango as soon as they could either.

Latest update:

  • MANGO / 7.5 Compatible
  • Fast App Switching support
  • Optional toast notifications of new posts
  • Optional 2 sided live tile updates with picture and title of latest post
  • Added link to review the App
  • New search function
  • General fixes and speed improvements

The app is a simple one which just shows the galleries from TheChive website. The content varies from funny, inspirational, woman, etc. and it is pretty much one of the best time killers you will find on the marketplace.

Somethings do bother me about the app like the way the categories are sorted out (which is a mess) and that there is no way (except looking through the categories) to look through their archives. Even so this app will get alot of use as soon as you download it.

Sure this app could use more work but this time the content beats out any minor issues I found. Hopefully they will continue to work on it to bring the ability to comment, dig through the archives, maybe even shop on their online store.

Rating: ★★★★☆
