Customer Reviews

Not very useful

It never stops amazing me but every update to this app just makes it worse. They did some nice format change but even after you hit the button to download the paper twice, and it says completed both times, once you open up the paper offline most if not all the articles are still not downloaded. You have to go open each article you want to read while online to get it to download, then you can read it offline. Huge waste of time.

Terrible app

The app is terrible. It freezes up regularly. When it does load, and you select a link, it freezes again. You have to kill the app. Customer support response is always the same, "we're working on it". This is the fourth largest city in the US and we only have one paper. It's a shame the Hearst corporation doesn't put more resources into this as the hard copy newspaper business is a dying breed . Extremely disappointed. I am reading the paper in a web browser instead.

App is Horrible

I have been complaining about the new app since its beginning. Apparently, the Chronicle does not listen to its customers. There is too much content, articles can be found in two or more places (why?), app freezes. Bring back the first version that more resembled the print version, offered a week of editions, did not freeze and one could easily find articles. I will not renew my subscription unless vast improvements are made. "If it isn't broke, don't fix it."
