Customer Reviews

Just awful

The app routinely crashes (50%), ads slow scroll rates, and head lines are often linked to wrong story. To make matters worse these are not the worst part about the app. Most stories will require you to click through some ridiculous slide show, that could easily be completed with a few lines of text. What should take 3 minutes to read takes more than 10 because of all the ads loading and crashes. If you can find another source for local news, use it and dump this app ASAP!

Poor functionality

Update does not help. App is poorly designed & does not function well. Layout makes finding articles difficult & it is easy to click on incorrect links. For some reason, when you go to click a link, the page shifts and the wrong link is selected.


This app needs help, crashes, slow, layout and the way it updates news. All around I'm thankful for being able to read the local news. The Wall Street Journal has a great layout, but there are only a few things I read out of it. I'm a daily reader of the Chron. A few times a day. Thanks
