San Francisco Chronicle Reviews

  • Asleep in Silicon Valley

    By Zin Geoff
    Here we are at the vortex of the tech world, and our local paper has one of the worst apps going... it is incredibly slow to load and open!! Really, ny times, la times, cnn, cbs, etc. all work really well, with audio and video. And the old SF Chron is still back in the early days of tech...really, this feels like an old dial up app... cant believe that some 10 year old cant come by and fix this! Just disgraceful...g
  • No longer works.

    By jpcarr
    I've been taking the Chronicle since 1979 and I've been reading the app online for years. Now I cannot log on and cannot get any help.
  • Work still to go

    By tjreilly
    Slow loading times, crashes when launching stories from push notifications, and a bloated cache make this app less useful than it could otherwise be. It's tough to fault the Chronicle, though — goodness knows that things like this app are expensive to do properly, so if the money's going to be invested somewhere, keep sending it to the newsroom before sending it to the developer.

    Like the app
  • Long Time User

    By Pig mower
    I've been using this app since it first became available years ago and it used to work fine. Lately, it has become slow and clunky as many of the other reviewers have said. 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.
  • Won't clear data

    By Jeff in Noe Valley
    Besides the complaints of being slow to load, the app is the biggest user of my storage. I have tried 10 times to clear it and nothing happens. I have written tech support but no reply. I likely will uninstall.
  • Slow, clunky, crashes constantly

    By Pretty Pittie
    Horrible app. It's slow and clunky and constantly crashes.
  • I want to like this app, but it's too unreliable

    By Mega Mart
    As a Chronicle subscriber, I'd love to rely more on this app, but too often it is slow, won't refresh content or has broken links to content. And, it's crappy design feels like 2006--not at all what we should expect from a San Francisco institution.
  • Frustratingly Slow

    By citykittysf
    Content is fine - assuming one has the patience to wait while it takes seemingly forever to load. A recent "upgrade" did make some improvements, but on certain days, it is so slow that I give up.
  • App is terrible

    By Kenwood Bucky
    This app is terrible. Consistently regresses with every release. Stale and repeated content - stories will stay around for weeks. No ability to see back issues. Hard to navigate (swiping between pages sometimes takes 10 tries) and unstable. Really? Maybe print will make a comeback as this doesn't cut it. Very disappointing for Bay Area readers.
  • Embarrassment to Center of Tech Industry

    By smcclary
    Slow to load articles, links to videos only work once in a while. Organization is not intuitive. Right hand sidebar includes duplicate items and doesn't seem to serve any purpose. All around lame effort.
  • No response

    By What-the?
    Crashes, freezes, fails to scroll, articles fail to load. I want to love it because it is my local paper but when you need to relaunch it several times to read an article, it's not worth it. I tried to contact customer support but have received no response.
