  • App Crashes

    By Murgatroyd2009
    No longer taking print edition as family member who couldn’t use the digital edition is no longer with us. I use the app primarily for local and state news. I find this iPhone app to be frustratingly unreliable. Several times each week while trying to scroll through an article it will freeze, go back to the beginning of the article, or crash and disappear entirely. This behavior repeats even after killing the app and restarting it. I’ll continue to use other paid national news apps for national and world news. My continued use of the subscription for the digital edition of this publication may depend on whether the iPhone app improves.

    Fair news coverage, but extremist and delusional Editorial Board who consistently publish out of touch and wrongheaded editorials. Michael 88888
  • Deteriorated to Worthlessness and Irrelevance

    By SudokuNut3
    As a 12 year daily reader of the Chronicle on this app, I have lived through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the very ugly. For many of the earlier years, the problems primarily were with the apps broken functionality, instability, and accessibility. These early problems have been largely resolved by updates in recent years. Today, the problems relate to poor reporting of the journalism. As many other reviewers have highlighted, front page articles are far from the major news of the day. Instead, it is filled with insignificant local stories that remain on the front page for days at a time. How worthless is a digital newspaper whose front page stories are last week’s school board news! I suspect that the Houston Chronicle management has lost all interest in this iTunes app. Instead, they now offer their own digital subscription that is a high performing presentation of the day’s news, as printed in their daily print editions. I’ve taken advantage of a 6-month trial subscription and it is far better than the iTunes Chronicle app.
  • Decent app, provincial content for giant metropolis

    By Diegofinni
    The paper app works fine. Content is rarely updated, so you might find typically only 30% new content in each section from the day before. The paper itself is just pitiful. For a city that prides itself in being the 4th largest city in the US the largest paper in town feels like just one step above your high school newspaper. Not sure they understand the meaning of “international section” because there is none in the app and in the paper itself you might missed the news buried among giant ads. Houston has literally hundreds of thousands of expats and foreigners living in the area but the paper pays no attention to what happens beyond our borders. Oh yeah, and if you don't like football don't bother with the sport section. Want to know who won Winblendon, Monaco F1, Champions League, Boston Marathon? Find it somewhere else. Not in this paper.
  • Good OpEds

    By RNSt.Elsewhere
    Wish they had more local coverage of nearby counties especially local elections but happy with what they do have.
  • App is better now but content is worse

    By Nolabelhere
    Although the app is more stable now there is not as much content as before and there is more content from HC on Apple News+ than in the app. Save your money and get News+. Seeing the same headlines for 3-4days straight is boring!
  • Viewing

    By Cityguy h-town
    Banner ad is not able to close 2inch space under the banner restricts viewing of e-edition
  • Web page

    By jmslonghorn
    The platform is unstable each time sections are changed size must be re set. Reporting is obviously not balanced.
  • Garbage

    By msm@1971
    The only reason I keep a digital subscription is because of the sports section. I read the paper version for over 30 years. Everything outside of sports has a left leaning view (far left a lot of times) just like most of the media and has gotten a lot worse over the years. Obviously, you do not know you subscriber base which explains your poor overall performance. I wish you were what newspapers used to be, report the news without any political viewpoint. When politics are involved, include view points from both sides.

    Every time I leave the page I need to revalidaye my subscription. Very frustrating. May be they can get some lessons from NY Times and Wall Street Journal
