    How does one access the comics page?
  • Sold my email

    It is crazy how most are scammers. This is not free. You should not sell our info. I regret getting this paper.

    6/23 and all stories are from 6/22
  • Broken links galore

    By K-Fine
    For how much my subscription to this paper costs, I’m always disappointed by how often I can’t read the stories I want on the app. Links won’t link anywhere, push alerts lead to blank pages, etc. I love supporting my local newspaper but I really wish they’d iron out the bugs.
  • Sf gate seems more interesting than this..

    By AnyPresidentbut HIM
    I am surprised that SF Gate, even with it’s pervasively annoying pop up ads and videos, grabs my attention more than The Chronicle. I hope they will improve it. I cancelled my Boston Times for The Chronicle…of course the former is produced in a significantly larger and, perhaps, more dynamic city. I will likely continue to Gravitate towards the NY Times for real substance.
  • Needs work! And still waiting!!

    Updated 6/14/22 Not only has the reloading of articles not been addressed more and more of their exclusive articles and reports and nearly unreadable with poorly designed interaction in the iPhone and iPad apps. I support the Chronicle and it’s content. But it’s app is in serious need of updating to make it truly readable. Reaching out to customer support only returns a form email thanking me for my feedback - even when showing what I might consider bugs. I wish the app delivered articles half as well as Apple News delivers those same articles. Original Post As a Bay Area resident I am happy to have this version of the newspaper. But it has not really improved in recent years. New look has only decreased font size for front page displays despite my system settings. I sure wish it would not restart whatever article is being viewed if you ever leave the app to do anything else. I have been asking for this feature for at least a couple years. Compared to other newspapers and digital news apps I use this one really needs work to bring into today’s digital world.
  • Not enough coverage

    By isupportKQED
    Lots of restaurant and real estate intel but compare that to local news and it's clear that local news, especially about the east bay, is a lower priority. It's news media for comfortable property owners in the Bay who like the status quo and want to keep it. Enjoy!
  • Subpar website

    By SF subscriber
    Terrible website. I’m a frustrated subscriber.
  • Good content, Terrible app

    By hakunamata12345
    The iPhone app is frustrating to use. It reloads articles as you’re reading them. If your screen locks, for example, if you step away for a second to get more coffee, the article reloads and you have to scroll down to the place you left off. I don’t expect much from a news app, just serve me the content when I click on it, but this app isn’t cutting it. Please fix this issue.
  • Terrible design flaw

    By EcoTeach
    This app is frustrating to use. You can’t tap the top of the screen to be auto-scrolled back to the top, which Apple built into iOS. You have to tap the screen to make the SFChron logo appear then tap that. But worse is if you screen shuts off or you leave the app even for a second, you lose your place in an article and are auto scrolled back to the top. Why would they do that? It makes reading articles terrible, which makes the app worked. I’ll be canceling my subscription once my cheap trial is over.
