"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.

    The only reason I don't have it at five stars is because there are a couple of issues that been created by this recent update. One is that the captions aren't showing correctly. It shows the caption from the first photo on all the photos. Also it took away the picture counter. Need back PLEASE!

    Yeah, it's much better now, I can search for Squishy til my heart's content! BUT, why is it when I download a pic, like say my favorite lifehack, the caption won't download too? Kind of pointless to download a pic of microwaved poached eggs without the instructions don't you think?!
