  • Constant need to link subscription

    The new app is confusing to navigate. There are constant requests to link the subscription and sometimes to sign in. Reading on the web interface is easier and less buggy. I have given up using the app.
  • Less New Content

    Moving my rating to 3 stars. Over last week or so they have more regularly added new content and have reintroduced by lines for lead columnists. Headed in a better direction. From what I can tell the redesigned look and feel of the app (which I like) was accompanied by a significant reduction in the amount of new content loaded each day. The reduction in the amount of new content loaded each day coupled with the removal of several sections/features (featured columnists, games, real estate) has resulted in an app that does not justify the subscription price. I will not be renewing my subscription.
  • Missing features, no search

    Two features that regularly drew me to the previous app were the Ask Mick LaSalle column, and the horoscopes (especially Sunday’s Minerva feature). The latter might sound silly, but checking the horoscope was a fun daily ritual, followed by reading articles of interest. Now that there is no daily horoscope, I’m out of the habit and ease of visiting the Chron app at all (I’m not going to invest the extra time in looking it up and reading the paper on my laptop at work). Similarly the Ask Mick LaSalle column – if I happened to miss it, very easy to enter it in the search field, and then I’d stick around reading other items – but now it’s inaccessible, unless I happen to visit the app the day it’s published. I’m sure your intent wasn’t to shift daily readers to an occasional rare visit, but at least in my case, that’s the result.
  • Buggy update.

    A few suggestions: 1. Don’t present articles as modals. iOS users expect to be able to use the edge swipe gesture to go back to the previous page. You are presenting articles with a cover modal presentation. Your content works best with a navigation controller. 2. Ads popping in make the content shift around a lot. 3. Loading spinners aren’t dismissed when the content finishes loading. The update certainly has potential, and is better than the web views you were using before. But these bugs are really distracting.
  • Finally - a good, working Chronicle app!

    The previous app froze and crashed so much that I’d stopped using it altogether. The new one is great! Stable, fast performance, nice layout, very easy to use. Great job! I withheld one star due to lack of a search function - a must-have for a newspaper app. Hopefully that can be added before too long.

    We're here near the Silicon Valley, and these guys can't seem to manage a decent website. Frustrating every day. That was my original review. Happy to amend it today. The new site is magnificent You guys should be proud. It's a great piece of work, worthy of Bruce Jenkins, Willie Brown and Carl Nolte, for sure. Thanks.
  • Downgraded

    The new app is unbearable. Font size can’t be adjusted, huge pictures assault the information seeking reader, and the articles have shrunk to minimal content. It feels like the Chronicle wants to compete with Fox News.
  • The update is great!

    So happy to be able to write a positive review of this app finally. The new upgrades make this so much more enjoyable to use.
  • Lost that reading pleasure

    Being able to read the electronic version of the print paper with the same look and feel was the differentiator worth paying for .... Now, not so much. The new format may not make the cut for reading with a cup of coffee in the morning. The app performance is abysmal ... we rarely get the front page to load and when it does, drilling down to an article often requires closing the app and trying again. Terribly disappointing when Comcast claims 25-100 download speeds Now it wants us to prove we have a subscription to read an article ... this is s is the most expensive and worst performing app we have ... FIX IT!!!!! Seriously, today I had to go back to our paper copy! 2018 ... can’t access Chronicle on any device! Help service is no help! Can’t even reset password! Give me my money back!
  • Bad functionality. No search function

    The new SF chronicle app is unbelievably worse than the prior app. It is hard to find at a glance which articles I want to look at. Prior app much better. Also there is no search feature? What kind of news app doesn’t have search?? Very bad. And I can’t access horoscopes. Did they forget to put a link? There is perhaps a lack of alignment in terms of how the paper sees itself and how the users see it. I’d rather see this versus many of the articles. Fix it now!!
