Horrible update

I used the original Chron app multiple times a day and it was a great news app. Very clean and simple. Easy to navigate and rock stable. Now it's a complete mess. Too cluttered, too much video and multimedia. I'm sorry but I don't go to my newspaper app to watch videos. I go to read news articles. Real news, not "10 funny things that happened this day in history" which seems to be what they put on the front screen now. Plus it crashes on a regular basis, at least once per session, usually more often. I've gone from a user who spent an hour or two a day on the app, to now twice a week, if I have no alternative. Fire your team that recommended this.

Too much multimedia fluff gets in the way

This app gets worse every time it gets updated. I like keeping up with local news but really just want the stories/news to READ. Please cut the multimedia's become so hard to find actual content I've found myself seeking it elsewhere. Especially since all that junk crashes the app half the time.


Difficult to navigate, tap on an article and it doesn't open. As you're reading pop-ups appear and won't close when you want them to. App not very user friendly, also too busy, have to scroll through too many spots to get to the article of interest.
