This latest update won't let me open any articles. It brings me to a page to purchase a subscription even though I'm signed in. When I try to link my account it won't find my information.
This app doesn’t work. It won’t load content when connected to high speed WiFi. The iPad version is equally unusable: UPDATING THE CONTENT FAILED (ERROR CODE3)
I dislike the full Houston Chronicle I-Pad app. It looks like a computer info page rather than a newspaper. The e-paper looks Like a newspaper but I can’t find a way to put an e-paper on the desktop. Looking online I found an item which downloads The e-paper but despite what it said, it did not install it on the desktop for offline reading. When I click the desktop app I get only the computer info page type. Frustrating for a major city newspaper. Currently I am sticking with my Austin newspaper app which is more straight forward & commonsense approach.
I last used the Houston Chronicle app prior to the most recent overhaul, which was notorious for constant crashes. With that said, you were at least able to read most, id not all, of the articles from the print edition and houstonchronicle.com. This version looks more modern and seems to crash less, but in terms of actually getting to consume the news, it is a disaster. For starters, it seems that only a portion of the articles from the print edition and houstonchronicle.com show up in the app. Also, a number of the articles are several days old and in no specific order (older articles are above newer ones for example). Also, a large amount of articles are mislabeled as local despite being national or international news. This is a huge problem. The overall design is good but the content itself is very poorly done. Unfortunately I will be canceling my subscription since content is why I subscribe to a newspaper and this app does a poor job of providing to you with updated and properly labeled content.
Where is the digital replica view of the daily paper?
Almost useless. It’s a laborious app to hunt any news. ugh
I have problems accessing the Houston Chronicle print edition. The sign in feature is very unreliable. This should be so easy and it isn’t. Print Edition Snob
The old app did not work at all.....it jus froze a lot and never loaded. My guess is that instead of trying to fix the old one, they just scrapped it and started over with a very simple one. At least you can read some articles with this version, which I couldn’t before. I had given up on the ap, but now at least I can read some. I’m hoping they’ll slowly ad features.
I can log in just fine from the web but each time I try to log in through the app from my iPad or iPhone it says invalid account and/or password,! Removing app.
Very poor app that freezes too much. I went back to paper and then they missed delivery one day a week. Have moved to WSJ and other internet sources.
