Customer Reviews

I've begun reading the daily paper again

I love the Tribune. It has become my first source to turn to for all my news. Between the morning edition and the evening update, I find this is one of the most easily justified expenditures I have. Please keep up the terrific work by continuing to deliver this quality newspaper & I will continue subscribing!

a three second ad delay

As a subscriber, whatever has recently changed, when I open the app there is a screen that, with the exception of the word advertisement, is blank and a three second countdown.
C'mon Tribune.
Try harder not to annoy the people who still pay for your award-winning journalism.

Not user friendly

Wanted a lower cost alternative to my print subscription, but, this app is too frustrating and not useful to me. The enewspaper content does not come through-just a blank page and this app jammed/froze my access to the App Store. With today's technology I thought the Trib would have a better product.
