Reviews

Be aware of deceiving subscription terms!

1
The App is okay and has gotten better of time. My beef is with their subscription terms. Trying to use it on multiple devices and browsers did not work. I ended subscribing directly from sfchronicle.com for $150 for annual unlimited digital access. I was shocked when it renewed at $359.88 for one year digital access! Their subscription terms are deceiving. Yes somewhere in the fine print it claims it’s a promotional rate and will renew “at the then-applicable rate”. Customer service would not help resolve this. P.s. My NYTimes and Economist subscription are a fraction of this cost and are clear what the costs are independent of any promotional pricing.

Subjective opinion

I enjoy the news articles although I wish there were more world news. I especially like most of the editorials.

Constant refreshing

2
This is the worst reading app I have. It constantly refreshes while reading articles, putting me at the beginning. Can happen 2-3 times before I have finished the article. New York Times app is much better as it doesn’t do this and it remembers where you were even if you leave the app and return later.

Fix the Refresh!

The Chronicle is a great source for local and state-wide news, and I’m grateful to have access to their journalism, but why must the app refresh and reload back to the top of an article after switching apps? Please fix this.

Quality of journalism has plummeted here

1
Ever since the shifts of editors (primarily from Amazon-owned Washington post - google it!) the quality of writing is just AWFUL. I can’t even swallow the clickbait, NY Post-esque kind of headlines and writing. Had to cancel my subscription- and I’m much happier receiving more nuanced and well written articles from NPR and NY Times. It truly saddens me since I used to love getting local journalism from here - but it’s now filled with local gossips and hearsays - goodbye fact checking!

A real news organization

They still have great writers and varied, timely articles.

Comments Option

2
When I click on the app and read articles there is no option to read or make “Comments.” Access to “Comments,” is only available to me if I click on SFC articles sent to me via email. And, from there, can also click on other articles and read or make comments.
