In March 2014, PewDiePie updated his video production, announcing he would be scaling down the frequency of uploads.In August 2014, Maker Studios released an official PewDiePie app for the iPhone, allowing audiences to view his videos, create custom favourite video feeds and share videos with others. Later in the month, PewDiePie uploaded a video, announcing he would permanently disable comments on his YouTube videos.On his decision, PewDiePie stated “I go to the comments and it’s mainly spam almost all the time and filiters are not helping at all and asking youtube to fix the comment system on youtube , it’s people self advertising, it’s people trying to provoke… just all this stuff that to me, it doesn’t mean anything. I don’t care about it, I don’t want to see it.” After disabling comments, PewDiePie continued interacting with his audience through Twitter and Reddit. In mid-September, PewDiePie uploaded a follow-up video, sticking by his decision, and announcing the launch of broarmy.net, an online forum and website where users can share there views and ideas and content and talk to there bros, in which he will actively connect with his viewers, designed to replace the YouTube comment section.
