Although the Chive On app is still fairly new, the developer behind it all has pushed a new build into BlackBerry World and it's now available for for download. This release sees the version number get bumped up to 1.0.2.75 and addresses a lot of concerns folks had with the app based on feedback. The change log is short, so we'll just get right to it.

  • Updated to the Native 10.2 SDK (min OS 10.2 now required).
  • FIXED: Missing placeholder and other issues for animated GIFs in the gallery.
  • FIXED: Crash when tapping the twitter button on the about page.
  • NEW Setting: Added option to disable the BlackBerry Spark.
  • NEW: Full image view with pinch/zoom now supports animated GIF’s.
  • NEW: Can now share animated GIF’s. (not all share targets will support GIF’s)
  • NEW: Can now save animated GIFs to storage.
  • Improved cache management.
  • Performance improvements.
  • About page tweaks.

Overall a nice update to an already great app. If you've not downloaded Chive On yet, now is a good a time as any. Chive On is available for free with ads or you can pony up the $1 to go completely ad free and support a BlackBerry 10 developer creating great apps.

Congrats, dude.

Not a Chive user, doubt its usefulness. How many more time wasters or distractors can we have on our phones?

Some stuff on it is funny, yeah, but we wanna get something done during the day, right?

Am I the only person who doesn't know what Chive is??? Blaize doesn't see fit to give any info on what this app does. I checked in BBW and neither do they say what the app actually does.

Maybe 30% of time I just get a black screen or an image of the gif but regardless of full screen or regular view no video function? However I can see movement/video in the thumbnail? No rhyme nor reason.
