San Francisco Chronicle App Reviews

  • Seems web developer ignored previous feedback

    By Aldus M
    The Chronicle keeps asking for app feedback but fails to deliver. I and others have been suggesting a search function FOR YEARS like on the NYTimes or the WSJ. In May the developer responded to another reviewer that they “are working on a search function”. Still no searching ability. A new development is now the articles are download painfully slow and there is no “progress” Indicator that anything is happening.
  • Customer service

    By clancy Kat
    Terrible customer service. Was on the phone for 20 minutes trying to Log into e edition. Not fixed. Arrogant person on the you’re end who seem to not have any patience or understanding. Seriously thinking of canceling. Kathy
  • Terrible Functionality

    By CandiceNovember1990
    I have had problems with this app since downloading it over a year ago. It constantly shuts down or freezes, it tells me that I’m signed in but limits my access to articles, won’t let me sign out and sign back in again to try to fix it, it’s very hard to search for articles, and is just all around a bad experience.
  • Pay to Play

    By Darshmiester
    The first thing you see when opening the app is the $5 monthly agreement to read unlimited articles, which I think is nonsense. If you choose to not pay you only get to read 3 articles a month, which is useless for someone who wants to be updated on the daily issues/events occurring in our world. Unless you want to pay $5 a month to read articles, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.

    By Semper Paratus 333
    After many fairly minor annoyances for months navigating the Comical’s e-edition, I reached the breaking point today. Attempting to open today’s SUNDAY edition, yesterday’s SATURDAY edition repeatedly opens. It’s just not worth the aggravation; I’ll be spending $10 a month on the San Jose Mercury instead.
  • No search facility

    By LEC dancer
    A search function would be very helpful. If a story is not in the days paper, no way to read it on the app.
  • Subscription doesn’t work

    By Eggiers
    I think this is a pretty good app and I like the newspaper so I am a subscriber. But, subscribing to the app does not get you access to the website which is ridiculous. Even links in articles I read in the app are unusable bc they link out to the website which I can’t access despite paying $60 for an annual subscription. So I’ve cancelled.
  • Hard to read

    By Frank Critic
    I want to see the whole page.
  • Password issues

    By happybirder
    I have a subscription and yet need to constantly log back in for every story. Very tedious!
  • Can't Search App

    By jl_oak
    I don't know of any other media apps that don't have a search feature! This is a major omission, and I hope it's designers care enough to fix this.
