Chive On

You may recall that we told you recently that Chive On - an unofficial theChive app had been made available as a public beta after failing to make it to BlackBerry World for reasons unknown. The good news is that if you now hit up BlackBerry World you'll find Chive On there - and free to download. 

To be honest I'm new to this Chive business so I'm off to educate myself with it now, but for you folk that are familiar, you can now have the the native experience on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. 

Chive On is ad supported but if you want to ditch those you can do so via an in-app purchase of just $0.99.
