The internet is full of entertaining and funny news and videos. However, finding a good app that consolidates all the funny stuff into one place is difficult. You can find good stuff on Instagram, Facebook etc. but there is a lot of fluff to contend with on such sites. theChive is one app which can help in this regard as it is basically a hub for all the funny news and videos circulating over the web. theChive isn't a forum that contains original content, it picks up data from a number of websites all around the world and compiles it for its audience.
theChive's app has a very simple interface. As soon as you would open the app, you will be introduced to the trending news items. The pieces would both include pictorial posts as well as videos. In some items, there would only be captions for the videos or the pictures while some would contain text explaining each picture as well. The funny app normally offers trending pictures and videos which have gone viral over the internet. The app has a tabbed interface with the funny posts divided into different categories. The categories include Chive Originals, Entertainment, Gaming, Hotness, Humanity, Humor, Lifestyle, Military, Outdoor, Sports and so on. There are a total of 41 categories with each category containing stuff relevant to its genre. For instance, the entertainment section normally includes posts about upcoming films, movie trailers, and TV shows. On the other hand, the hotness category has beautiful pictures with entire albums consisting of great eye-candies. It basically depends on your mood and what you would like to see. The app makes life easier by dividing its news and videos into categories so that the content is easier to access as per your mood and liking.
The app also offers the option of searching for the topics about which you want to read or view videos. You can also take a look at what the Chive community is looking at and what's trending on the funny app. There is also a favorites section through which you can access all the posts that you have favorited at one point or another. This is pretty good as it helps you revisit articles or news items that you liked a lot. There is also a ChiveTV section through which you can use the app's video player to play all the funny videos present on the platform.
The app has a fine article reader which loads pictures quickly so as to ensure that the reading experience is fine. The funny app also offers a great discussion forum as well which is always extremely funny too. You can sign up in order to contribute and add your comments as well. The funny app also offers the chance of upvoting or downvoting any post that you like or dislike. This helps other people also in understanding whether a particular post or video is funny or not.
