Every now and then, an app, nay, an idea, comes along that is so epic and so well executed that it transcends gender, personal taste, and all the Chive1things that make us compartmentalize everything in society that we come across. My friends, Chive is such an idea. I was first introduce to this magnificent concept many years ago, and quickly became a fan. Everything awesome about the internet has been encapsulated into this one, singular idea, and it is brilliant. Since its inception, The Chive has evolved into a beast, selling all kinds of apparel, brewing its very own beer, and even getting its tons of fans to donate money and time for some worthy causes. The Chive Android app is equally as awesome. It is simple in nature. It delivers all categories, plays videos and GIF’s, and is freakishly simple to use. You can make purchases in The Chivery and pay all within the app. It also has games and a pretty bad ass beer map that outlines all the places that sell or serve KCCO beer in your area. Basically, if you don’t like this app or The Chive in general, I understand but you’re stupid and I hate you. Ok, I don’t really hate you, but you get the point. That being said, Chive3I have a request of The Chive. I’d love to be able to save GIF’s from within the app. I believe this function was available prior to one of the updates a while ago, so please bring it back. In short, download this app; enjoy DAR, FLBP, and Mind the Gap any day of the week. Most importantly, KCCO, my sons…erm, and daughters.

About Steven Brewer

I’m a lifelong comic book fan. Comics pulled me in at an early age, with influences ranging from Chris Claremont’s historic X-Men run, Walt Simonson’s Thor run, Mike Zeck’s run on The Punisher limited series, Jim Lee’s X-Men, the early 90’s X-Men animated series, and the best cartoon ever made, Batman: The Animated Series. As a kid, these comics and cartoons gave me a new world to go to when the real world wasn’t so nice. Because of this, comic books will always have a special place in my heart. I love everything about comics, and still get the same feeling reading them today as I did when I was a kid. My major in college was psychology, so I love to incorporate that into comics.
