App Reviews

  • Clunky app

    By Wc reader xyzzy
    It is a very slow and clunky app. Stories are slow to load. Very little is seen in any screen to facilitate selection of larger story. Moving between sections is awkwardly designed. This is the best that can be done in premier high tech region? It has recently been , and I hesitate to use word, "upgraded", since that implies major change. It is not quite as slow and clunky so maybe gets a bit in a 2nd star. But sometimes it is necessary to tweak site in order to get stories to load. Getting current day's edition is a slow process but at least now it works, unlike before. Designers should check out how efficiently other newspaper sites work and aim for that standard. It has again been "upgraded", but still remains incredibly slow. Sometimes news stories will not load without shifting to other sections first. Why can't they get it right
  • The NorCal brewery map story has been on the front page for over a year.

    And that’s only the beginning of this apps problems Also, I rated the app literally yesterday and now it’s interrupting my reading to nag me to rate the app?
  • Screen Freeze

    By SFO Reviewer
    The SF Chronicle app is much slower that the NYT and Washington Post apps for iphone. It takes a long time to load and moving around is very slow. The screen freezes sometimes as well. Please fix. Content is great and getting better every day. There is a lot of journalistic talent at the Chron!
  • Does what it needs to

    By Thurv
    I like how the app works and loads the new day, not better then the Washington post but way better easier then trying to read the actual paper on BART ever morning
  • Quite good

    By Michael SF
    I use this app five or six days a week to read the Chronicle on the ferry. Generally it works well, and navigation works extremely well in the most recent versions of the app. The only real flaw is that the “download for off-line reading” fails from time to time. The consequence is that when the Internet is unavailable while the ferry is in the middle of the bay, the app sometimes says “content unavailable” even for the text. Clicking the red “Download” bar twice while the Internet connection is still available seems to make it worse. But overall it is quite a good app for reading the newspaper. The only other thing I would criticize is that it has no button that allows one to see exactly which stories are in the printed version of the day’s Chronicle, which people sometimes refer to in discussions with me. The online version contains stories that are older, but also not all the new stories that are in the printed version of the paper, as far as I can tell.
  • Worst Newspaper App

    By Farmworker1
    Th San Francisco Chronicle app is the worst app newspaper app available. It is slow, prone to freezing, and graphically poorly designed.
  • Much improved

    By Pcj46
    Much faster loading and navigation. Only annoyance is scrolling - or lack thereof: page wants to "jump" to next screen which is smaller than my device's so I have to "hold" it in place to read first couple lines. Otherwise, much more usable app.
  • Good paper, very erratic

    By Grandpa PH
    Articles are good, interesting. But, some times cannot change sections...must close then start over. Also, some sections do not open.
  • Long Time User

    By Pig mower
    The writing staff for the chronicle itself is great! The have a great set of columnist like Ann Killion, Carl Nolte and Willie Brown. They are good enough that I put up with the clunky app. Note the app became slow but I deleted it and reloaded and it works great now.
  • Excellent content; lousy mechanics

    By srdougal
    Slowest of any of my news apps. Takes forever to load, hangs up frequently and shuts down for no particular reason. In short, infuriating! The stars are only because of the content. App is zero stars.
