Other minor fixes
The Houston Chronicle app has finally started working on my elderly iPad fourth gen. In previous iterations it would crash regularly and force me to reboot in order regain control of my tablet. I cannot say if it is because of the IOS up dates or Hearst's efforts, but this latest version is working consistently for me on this machine for the first time since I first installed it two and a half yrs ago.
Adequate, but not much more
The apps delivers the content, but sometimes the text is overwritten by ads or picture captions. The most recent update crashes often and does not recover quickly. This apps needs serious maintenance.
I wrote the foregoing review two years ago and little has changed. The app still crashes and has difficulty reloading. Text still does not flow well. (May, 2015)
In October 2015 this app still crashes, often won't load the latest edition, and now under IOS 9, mangles text. Very disappointing and the only game in town for Houston residents.
I have enjoyed this app in the past. However, it was crashing repeatedly in my new iPad. I deleted and re-downloaded and logged back in and it is working perfectly now. I suggest you try that. The clean install will probably fix your problems.
