Unofficial Chive app set to hit BlackBerry World tomorrow

By Adam Zeis on 31 Jan 2014 01:54 pm EST

A few weeks ago we first saw the unofficial Chive app Chive On available for download. At the time it was unsure if it would ever make its way to an "official" launch in BlackBerry World, but tomorrow it looks like all the stars will be aligned.

After some back and forth and a bit of dark magic, Chive On will indeed be available via BlackBerry World tomorrow for all BlackBerry 10 devices. The app will of course be free and will feature the best of what The Chive has to offer, right on your device.

Features include:

  • Stay up to date with the latest image galleries from theCHIVE (no videos, yet).
  • Add posts to your favorites for easy access.
  • Animated GIF support.
  • Full screen viewing with pinch to zoom.
  • Photo and post sharing.
  • Ability to set images as your device wallpaper.
  • Save images to your device (requires 'shared files' permissions).
  • Active Frame support showing the latest posts.

Be sure to check back tomorrow when the app goes live. We'll update accodringly to help spread the word!

If you just can't seem to wait it out you can always grab the beta here.

Unofficial Chive app set to hit BlackBerry World tomorrow

Need some Chivettes on BBM Channels. I'm got a lot of Chive Gear, love it

Hmmm...never heard of many niche apps that overlap each other - Vine, Tumblr, Pinterest, Keek, etc, etc.

Its not really a social site like that, look at hot girls, funny stuff and great charities

Cool. Glad to see animated GIF support, and pinch to zoom capabilities. Hopefully the developer will add video support soon!

Oh. Let me guess, another social media app? I was just thinking to myself that we need another one of those. There aren't enough social media apps in the world yet, for sure

It's a flawless APP, and i'm happy to see it make it's way into Blackberry World

"...The Chive typically posts photos and lists of women...blah, blah, blah..."

For those that don't know, the above is apparently what drives the popularity of Chive.

Didn't know what Chive was but, this seals it for me....emphasis on BEAUTIFUL GIRLS! Lol!

Known as “Probably the Best Site in the World”, theCHIVE now has Probably the Best App in the World. theCHIVE is the world's largest photo blog showcasing original galleries of funny photos, videos and GIFs with epic fails, beautiful girls

I hate chives, they give me indigestion.

There's already a native app that shows Chive content, it's called "Funny Photo News". Yeah I know, lame name, but you get all your goods there

Like the BlackBerry beta, recently installed the Android because it had more features but app is a little slow vs BlackBerry beta. I think this full version will be awesome. Looking forward to it!

On a side note, not too happy to see CB promote this kind of app, regardless of "the other content" (harmless) served on it. Everyone is free to make choices.

As an early internet user, this kind of stuff (whether soft or not) seriously and literally f##ked up my life, my passion for life, my teenage years, my health, and twelve years of my relationship with my (now) wife.

Have a look if you want. I wish I had known earlier:

Official chive (android app) works great. Why waste time with an unofficial app.

Isn't Chive basically a pornography dating website? I knew BlackBerry employees who were terminated for using their corporate-issued smartphones accessing Chive. I can't imagine BlackBerry wanting to be associated with such family-unfriendly applications and websites in light of last year's backlash in the UK by parents over BBM for sexting teenagers.

Some rather raunchy stuff in that article's image. Guess that's why it's popular...
