App Reviews

  • How is it even possible to release an app this bad?

    By Fumo
    I can't say anything others haven't already. Rediculous. Between the full screen ad on every app start and the fact that articles don't load half the time... Wow. Do you test your own stuff?
  • Update this app!

    By long time metra rider
    Agree with other reviewers. Remind the flagship of Chicago print journalism that readers expect an app that is user friendly and actually works. Time to move on to other sources.
  • It's brutal

    By Señor shmug
    This app freezes the majority of the time and prevents me from reading most of the articles. It will cause me to cancel my online subscription.
  • Rather useless

    By Wk5981
    I paid for a subscription, I created an account, I copied my paid account info (login name and password) into this application and yet it only lets me see two free stories per month and after that it tells me to subscribe. Go figure. How a newspaper with the decent reputation can even release such a junk reading application.
  • Makes me want to go back print

    By m_meegs
    The app is painfully slow on LTE or WiFi, navigation unfathomable, and does a disservice to Chicago news. Expect better from the Trib and if I didn’t like the content I would cancel my subscription. Copy the WSJ, NYT, anyone, just make it better.
  • Annoying Ads, freezing app, auto shut down

    By hudson4332
    ....what else would you want from an App?
  • Broken links

    By 100Jim
    Daily, there are broken links to stories which require closing the app and restarting in order to continue with other articles. Quite frustrating and has caused me to start using NYT and Sun Times app.
  • Terrible

    By Willy Mayes Hayes
    This app is totally dysfunctional. Not worth spending a dime on.
  • Glitchy

    By DrChicago312
    The app regularly fails to load stories and freezes. The layout is clunky. The 3 second ads when you open it are ok, but annoying given that they’re the only part of the app that works semi-consistently. Spend the money to get a competent team in place/app up and running or you’ll lose this subscriber.
  • So bad

    By tleisten
    The app constantly freezes when you try to click on an article. Usually several attempts and having to close it out before an article will open. I’ve had it for a few years now and it has never gotten better. Sad!
