Chicago Tribune App Reviews

  • Does not work

    By danrules
    We pay for a subscription to this and yet whenever I click on a story to read, I get a loading screen and a frozen app that has to be force closed. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app only to have the same issue. Deserves 0 stars.
  • Worst app period

    By CBShedder
    As one can only view about half the news stories (clicking on the other half makes the app lock up and requires a re-start), may I pay half of the subscription price?
  • Sometimes it’s almost useable

    By LBergonzi
    Hard to believe such a major paper has such a minor league app. Can see the headlines but rarely can I read the article. So if you like staring at Gray, blank screens this is the app for you..
  • Worst Newspaper App

    By jbo578942
    Complete garbage. Stories don't load. Just spinning circles. If they do, you are subjected to ads, ads and more ads-even as a full print subscriber with unlimited digital access. Do yourself a favor and download the app from a real newspaper.
  • Why do I subscribe?

    By leafhound17
    I’m a paying digital subscriber to the Chicago Tribune, and every version of their app has crashed, is buggy, and jammed full of obtrusive ads. It’s a lack of respect and appreciation for its subscribers that’s the most galling. I gladly pay for great journalism—but tell me why do I subscribe to the Chicago Tribune?

    Insulate you from annoying pop-up ads. Canceling. I already get the WSJ (THAT’S a great news app). I will miss local news, but the Trib knows this is what happens when you miss the mark - look how many local papers the Trib bested / put out of business over the past 4 decades.
  • Here’s a test for you, Chicago Tribune...

    Let’s see if you pay the slightest attention to your subscribers’ complaints. I’ve been paying for the physical Tribune for more than 30 years, and getting the digital version pretty much as long as it’s been available. I’m either dedicated or stupid - probably both. But your terrible app is pushing me to the brink. No matter how many times I “register“ for the digital version or “log in,” your app manages to forget and forces me to re-log in each time I open the app for the electronic version of the Trib, which is pretty much every morning. As life-problems go, I’ll admit this is pretty minor league. As a tipping point annoyance though, you’re pushing your luck at a time when you need to be hanging on to the few subscribers you’ve got left. So fix this one (or, more likely, don’t) and either way, I’ll let your followers and detractors know. BTW, If you want to see what a good newspaper app looks like, check out the New York Times.
  • Really bad app

    By really badapp
    Worse news app in existence. I can’t believe subscribed this long. I wouldn’t waste your money.
  • embarrassing

    By apikoros
    This app is unworthy of a rural small-town newspaper, let alone the Chicago Tribune. It’s unbearably slow, and the only thing it does consistently well is crash. Shameful. Surely the Trib can do better.
  • Papyrus is preferable

    By donutimamzson
    You are a Trib subscriber if your days look like this: You get a news alert in the morning and tap to read it, it doesn’t load and you forget about it. You get a news alert in the afternoon and tap to read it, the screen opens up with the article you couldn’t read this morning, moves to the new one. You cannot go back to the one from the morning to read it while hoping the new one loads in the background. App becomes unresponsive so you close it. You go home, find the Sunday print edition and read something random and think about what may have happened that led you to be interested about the news alerts received earlier that day.
