Mr. Tribune

Not opening  Mr. Tribune  1 star

Was using often , after new update the app will not open. Any answers?


Very slow  DocteurQui  3 star

Each update loads more and more slowly. Does not have a section for Hoy but does for other Trib publications.


Trib App -Solid B+  Kenelee  4 star

Comment procedure is a mess but otherwise works well. I remember the days when Trib was independent; at least I like the WashPost.


Nice!  larrybeo  5 star

I like the apps and quality of reporting.


The Trib Is Top Shelf  RHCH  5 star

It's just great to still have a real newspaper.

Barefoot landlord

Well thought out interface  Barefoot landlord  5 star

To my surprise and includes a lot of local newspapers also

Reddy Kilowatt

App Badge shows alert when there's none  Reddy Kilowatt  1 star

Annoyingly indicates a number of alerts waiting when there's none. Only fully functional digital Tribune experience is via browser.


Essential app  Prairieplant  4 star

Update: it no longer counts articles, excellent. But the icon on my phone shows a a red circle with 1 in it--which is meaningless but looks like a flag for me to do something. I hope this gets fixed soon. Original review-- I have a full subscription to the Tribune. This app works well when I use my Trib subscriber login. Unless I use this app on the mobile phone, under the new policy, articles are counted against the ten per month. Oddly, Tribune e-mails me Daywatch but seems not to know I am a subscriber. I had less trouble with that on my laptop, but more testing is needed. App is fine, easy access to articles. Headlines are not the same, from paper to Daywatch to this app, and app articles are arranged by time released or shall I say printed. It would be nice if Tribune pointed out to subscribers more easily how to be recognized as one person on all devices. There are features I have not tried, like save article to read later.

Everything works really well

Dog Sof

Terrible  Dog Sof  1 star

The Chicago Tribune still thinks it can charge people for basic news stories! What a joke! They give you 10 free articles to read, but you can read all of their content for free on the mobile site. Who in their right mind would pay for a subscription to this on the app?! Dumb.

Don't see anything bad

Really  Don't see anything bad  1 star

What does tronc mean. You guys were great until you, tried to focus on money rather than news. This isn't about the newspaper app but rather its parent company. Just try to make people by newspapers again, because I will happily campaign for it for free.

The D4782040

Broken  The D4782040  1 star

Latest update broke the app. Will not open, can't delete it, it is gray on my screen.


Data hog  Chazmandu  2 star

Content and organization are okay for a local paper. But I found in the iPhone storage manager that, even after clearing the safari cache, this app accounted for 1.9 GB of data! Yes, GB! That was third most on the device after music and photos! And I barely use the app more than to scroll through once a day. There's no way to clear in-app cache (if that exists). My NYT app, by comparison, accounted for only 200mb of storage on my drive.


Live news vs printed version  bfurst  3 star

I'm not sure if the intent is to synchronize this live news with the paper version. Maybe not, because that's the not case it's not in sync. As TRIBUNE is moving to TRONC all digital I guess the synchronization process will be moot. Right now I could consider this a supplement to the printed copy. Navigation is good. Sharing doesn't really work well from my iPad as URLs are incomplete in emails I attempt to send. Keep on improving so you can save the trees.


No good  Kothi76  2 star

Just got the phone app and there are so many ads that block the headlines and important news. NYT app is so much better but I want local news. Maybe I'll try Chicago Sun-Times.


Worst news ap ever  Pakjhon  1 star

Besides failing to keep me signed in, there is a pop up for every story and ads so thick that scrolling is nearly impossible. Paid subscribers shouldn't have to deal with that.


Terrible App  BRRC92  1 star

I'm a Tribune reader and subscriber for 30+ years. Reading it on my iPad is my preferred way to go. Sadly, the app is terrible. The ad content at the top of page makes the app jump back to the top of the page. Arranging sections isn't intuitive nor obvious and they don't hold their places. The app is so jumpy and performs so poorly that I've deleted and reinstalled it several times thinking I had a corrupt version. Nope. It's just bad. I don't have these problems with the NYT, USA Today, or any other news content ads. And this from a company claiming to be focusing on digital platform creation. That's a funny one.


Tronc = Bonk  Robobort  1 star

Updated and reloaded, "breaking" news stories are three months old. Time to delete.


Infested with malware  Tony866433  1 star

This app appears to be completely infested with malware. When viewing a story, a pop-up is triggered every few seconds. Never seen anything like it.
