  • Fix it or lose

    I HAVE REPEATEDLY WRITTEN TO THE CHRONICLE ABOUT ALL OF THE SECTIONS THAT ARE STILL MISSING FROM THE PAPER SINCE THE UPGRADE WITH ZERO INDICATION OF WHEN IF EVER THEY WILL FIX. AFTER DECADES OF ENJOYMENT, AM NEARING A TURNING POINT WHERE THE PROPER RESPONSE IS TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION. Another update and renewed frustration. While there are many positives to the new Chron the negatives are glaring. It does not go unnoticed that the developer has not responded to the complaints from others to the misses. Search? Crossword puzzles? Obituaries structure?
  • Search function???

    Is there a search function???
  • Latest update lacking

    Two major problems: first, there is no search function (or at least it's not easily found). Second, the front page and subsequent pages/sections are populated by old articles. Nothing like opening the Local News section on January 2 to find out about public transportation options for New Years Eve - an article that ran two days prior and is now totally irrelevant. I read the newspaper to find out about NEWS (that's why it's not called an oldspaper). C'mon Chronicle...if you're committed to delivering online news, prove it. If you're not committed, then stop publishing an online edition.
  • Dated Stories Repeated Daily.

    There is very little fresh content in the digital edition. The majority of news articles that are published each new day in the digital edition are rehashed dated stories that sometimes are as dated as 5 days old. Most are dated between 2 to 3 days old. For example, for today’s edition of 12/31/2018, many stories were from the digital edition for 12/29/2018. There are some that are some articles that are dated 12/31/2018, however, my guess is that they compromise about less than 10 percent of the articles in the news paper. I’ve noticed that the reporters that carry the heaviest load, other than Sports, are few and mainly young. I guessing that these reporters are “cutting their teeth” as reporters while working with the Chronicle until they gain enough experience to move on to bigger and better newspapers. One final problem, since the reformatted update was rolled out last month, there is no way to adjust the size of the font.
  • Update is crap

    I have written directly to the Chronicle as a print subscriber about the problem others have identified: it will not recognize a subscriber and requires you to go back over and over to link your print subscription, even between articles. Enough already! Fix this app! Your update didn’t solve this problem!
  • No horoscopes, no crossword puzzle, no search and less content

    Had such hope for this new version. It loads faster and has less glitches but the price for that is less content?! No horoscopes, no crossword puzzles and no search.
  • New version is TERRIBLE!

    By Marcus Trucker
    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).
  • Less is NOT more

    No search, no crossword, fewer articles. Not at all happy with this format.
  • No search!

    I was incredulous when the revision came along and there was no search function. Surely this was a mistake that would be quickly addressed. But noooooo.... Seriously, Chron, we deserve better.

    I love the Chronicle’s app. It’s layout is simple and clean. Easy to navigate. Only feature missing is the ability to save your favorite articles! Please add that feature to your big board 🙏🏼
