Reviews

Slow and buggy

3
The replica newspaper often won’t load, or requires multiple refreshes. Each refresh causes ads to reappear. The NYT and LA Times have much better interfaces.

New version is TERRIBLE!

4
This latest revision is almost unusable because it freezes *and* crashes almost constantly. It's extremely unfortunate because I have been reading the Chron for well over 50 years and now I'm nearing the point of giving up on it because the app is borderline useless. 12/27/19 Update: Now the new version reloads an article *while you are trying to read it* to get the advertisements loaded. It does this repeatedly, making it difficult to read an/any article. Being on slow satellite internet compounds the obnoxiousness of the problem. Although I deeply enjoy the Chronicle I find myself getting my news elsewhere increasingly frequently due to this incessant, unwelcome “feature” (or bug). 4/9/21 Re-update: I’ve decided that 50+ years of reading the Chronicle makes it worth putting up with the bugs. Sadly they keep rerunning stories and reusing content with less and less new content but I STILL love the Chron.

Unable to stay interested

Not much of a news person here, but I was unable to stay interested enough to read. App has no dark mode -2 stars.

The app is mostly great...

4
It does have occasionally glitches. Like it should save my place in the article if I need to switch between apps while reading rather than always going through a reset even if I come back in less than 15 seconds. Stuff like that...

App doesn’t remember your place

3
When you’re in the middle of an article and you navigate away (to another app or article) and come back you have to scroll back through the article to find where you left off.

Considering dropping the ap

2
News is very one sided. Often isn’t updated. I used to read “Dear Abby”. It hasn’t been updated in over a month. Only thing worth reading is the comics. Not sure the ap is worth just getting the comics.

More meat

Like the application.. Chronicle needs more content.

An online pamphlet

1
The SF Chronicle has let go most of its senior writers. That leaves the readers with a combination of AP stories, which we could read anywhere, and a thin trickle of original content. It is a shame.

The worst newspaper app ever

1
We have several newspaper apps and this on stinks. I want to read the whole paper which is not possible with this app.
By Solanalynn

Great journalism

5
While the Chronicle is a renowned for its great journalism is a wide array of areas, as a lifelong A’s fan, I specifically appreciate its sport coverage. That’s why I’m a subscriber.
