Biased news for the Democratic Party

1
It’s super biased.

Good morning read

Articles are oftentimes too long

Frustrating refresh

2
When you tap an article to read, the screen keeps refreshing and you have to start at the top again. Sometimes you can’t get back to where you were reading before it refreshes again.

Just not good coverage

1
Not enough National coverage Sports section only reports local teams. Would like to keep up with Stats of games and other major league teams. Just a very poor Section. Too much retention of past reporting. Have to sift through the old Reporting to get to the current happenings Just not a good newspaper

Political Agenda Driven Headlines

Great local Sports coverage. However, Like KRPC, KHOU etc. The Chronicle covers what the DNC wants covered and uses the same daily “word for word” talking points. I wish they would break away from the tyranically driven talking points and be Courageous as Journalists.

App Crashes

2
No longer taking print edition as family member who couldn’t use the digital edition is no longer with us. I use the app primarily for local and state news. I find this iPhone app to be frustratingly unreliable. Several times each week while trying to scroll through an article it will freeze, go back to the beginning of the article, or crash and disappear entirely. This behavior repeats even after killing the app and restarting it. I’ll continue to use other paid national news apps for national and world news. My continued use of the subscription for the digital edition of this publication may depend on whether the iPhone app improves.

Chronicle Review

Fair news coverage, but extremist and delusional Editorial Board who consistently publish out of touch and wrongheaded editorials. Michael 88888

Deteriorated to Worthlessness and Irrelevance

2
As a 12 year daily reader of the Chronicle on this app, I have lived through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the very ugly. For many of the earlier years, the problems primarily were with the apps broken functionality, instability, and accessibility. These early problems have been largely resolved by updates in recent years. Today, the problems relate to poor reporting of the journalism. As many other reviewers have highlighted, front page articles are far from the major news of the day. Instead, it is filled with insignificant local stories that remain on the front page for days at a time. How worthless is a digital newspaper whose front page stories are last week’s school board news! I suspect that the Houston Chronicle management has lost all interest in this iTunes app. Instead, they now offer their own digital subscription that is a high performing presentation of the day’s news, as printed in their daily print editions. I’ve taken advantage of a 6-month trial subscription and it is far better than the iTunes Chronicle app.

Decent app, provincial content for giant metropolis

2
The paper app works fine. Content is rarely updated, so you might find typically only 30% new content in each section from the day before. The paper itself is just pitiful. For a city that prides itself in being the 4th largest city in the US the largest paper in town feels like just one step above your high school newspaper. Not sure they understand the meaning of “international section” because there is none in the app and in the paper itself you might missed the news buried among giant ads. Houston has literally hundreds of thousands of expats and foreigners living in the area but the paper pays no attention to what happens beyond our borders. Oh yeah, and if you don't like football don't bother with the sport section. Want to know who won Winblendon, Monaco F1, Champions League, Boston Marathon? Find it somewhere else. Not in this paper.

Good OpEds

Wish they had more local coverage of nearby counties especially local elections but happy with what they do have.
