"Browse Photo Galleries"

Reviewed by / Mar 17, 2015

Browse photo galleries; view by top ratedt, latest, or by categories.


theCHIVE looks good, and lets you browse through lists of galleries organised into various categories, or by top rated or latest. The app's main problem is that it's slow - the shuffle mode takes a long time to load, galleries take a long time to load, images take a long time to load, all together impairing the experience.


You can browse lists of galleries organised by top rated or latest, or through a nice category system that has categories and then several sub-categories for each. You can download images easily, favorite galleries, and there's a shuffle mode which will take you to a random gallery.


Everything about the app is slow. It takes a long time to load the lists of galleries, and then the galleries, and then the images. This seriously impairs the experience.

    I really want to rate this app 5 stars because I'm a big Chiver, but it crashes way too much. Edit: The app has improved in stability recently, so I rated it the 5 stars it deserves.
