Ratings and Reviews

Great until ads started playing w sound

Eric Fresh

I was liking the app until video ads started playing with sound. I’m a paid subscriber . Is this a joke? I immediately deleted it.

Seriously! An update that crashes!


Just loaded new update - now app does not even open. Doesn’t your masthead say “The World’s Greatest Newspaper”? How about a functioning app?

The Great Trib App We've Been Waiting For


As a loyal and long-time Chicago Tribune reader, I have tried all the various apps they have developed over the past few years, only to shake my head and delete them after a short time while continuing to use very good ones from other outlets (The Washington Post and NY Times get nods here).
Finally, this latest effort gives readers a solid app with great features, easy navigation and the ability to use on both your phone and your tablet. I like the ability to follow stories and topics, although you can't follow certain reporters or columnists, which would be a nice addition down the line. You can also very easily share stories (they finally get that the easier you make this, the more likely your readers will be to share your content!) You can also save stories for later reading, which is great.
Overall, a great App from the Trib that should make current readers happy and invite new readers into the fold.
