  • Vastly Improved

    By RE440
    This app, which was intended as an upgrade of a good prior version, was horrible at first (e.g., very unstable and continually crashing/locking up) and almost unusable. However, the developers have continued to make fixes and it is vastly improved. It has a good format and it has been several months since I have experienced any stability issues. Perhaps it was rolled out too soon, but whatever the reason, I give them credit for fixing the problems. It’s now a solid newspaper app and well worth using.
  • Can’t deliver on time

    By mhicon
    The entire reason why I get this online version is because I don’t get the paper version until up to 8am on weekends and 7:30 on weekdays. It should be here at 6am for early risers. The ap is hard to maneuver, have to log on several times and just a bad program. I would consider just going to the online version but it is so bad!
  • Improved Performance

    By SwimHen
    Thank you to the developers who took the time to improve this app!
  • It works!

    By Kcim Y
    I initially rated this app one star but it’s finally been fixed. No more problems for me. The app opens right away on my iPad mini 4 and has not crashed once since the update. I can now reliably read the paper. Thank you.
  • Too little too old

    By houreader
    Does not have enough of the articles that are in the daily print version and has too many old articles. App needs to keep current and cover more stories.
  • Never just works

    By nvrwks
    The app never just works. It’s either doesn’t load or freezes up or crashes. I’ve never once just opened the app and it work with out glitches. Usually it takes about 3 open and closes before it will work.
  • On borderline of cancelling

    By dr street
    I stuck with the Chronicle for 2 years, but the app keeps getting worse. Articles are hard to find. I hate the headlines which just guide you to a browser which brings up old news. Not in the same league as the Apple News app. Why don’t I just use it instead of the Chronicle. Stubborn I guess.
  • Much improved

    By spainchaud
    Stories load very quickly now. Memory usage is greatly improved. For much of 2017, the app was using over 20 GB of storage on my iPad, essentially filling it. Now the app is using less than 100 MB, about a 200 times reduction.
  • Problems solved!

    By IlBerto1
    I have given this app 1 star for a long time. The solution? Uninstall and re-install.
  • Better than it used to be

    By Jadesea
    Not perfect, but better than it used to be. Uninstalled and reinstalled after the latest update and at least it doesn't crash constantly anymore. The "In Today's Paper" page is confusing, international stories are under Local News. Stories about Houston are under National. "Dear Abby" appears inconsistently. If you like Sports, I guess you're okay.
