  • Annoying Ads, freezing app, auto shut down

    ....what else would you want from an App?
  • Broken links

    By 100Jim
    Daily, there are broken links to stories which require closing the app and restarting in order to continue with other articles. Quite frustrating and has caused me to start using NYT and Sun Times app.
  • Terrible

    By Willy Mayes Hayes
    This app is totally dysfunctional. Not worth spending a dime on.
  • Glitchy

    By DrChicago312
    The app regularly fails to load stories and freezes. The layout is clunky. The 3 second ads when you open it are ok, but annoying given that they’re the only part of the app that works semi-consistently. Spend the money to get a competent team in place/app up and running or you’ll lose this subscriber.
  • So bad

    By tleisten
    The app constantly freezes when you try to click on an article. Usually several attempts and having to close it out before an article will open. I’ve had it for a few years now and it has never gotten better. Sad!
  • Terrible Experience

    By NOVAChick
    The app crashes constantly. Consistency seems to happen when I open the app and click on a story of interest. Upon shutting it down and restarting, the issue continues with that same story or another. For requiring a paid subscription, the UX is terrible and not worth renewing.
  • Buggy

    By jonahkester
    Why is this app soooo buggy?? Constantly failing to load stories. Also upsetting that I pay for unlimited digital access and still have to view ads...
  • Won’t allow login

    By Hot in Chicago
    I wish I could give this zero stars. It won’t let you log in unless you purchased the subscription through the Apple store. If you bought online access directly through the Trib, you will not be able to log into the app. Forget the app, just use the web browser.
  • Buh-Bye Tribune

    By Jmendels
    Moving to Sun-Times. Sick of auto-play ads with sound. And perhaps more telling: the fact that the people designing the app and approving it could not care less about the experience of their users. Fellow users: Don’t take my word for it - read the reviews. Sort by ‘’most recent”.
  • Advertising Assault - Do Not Install!

    By BigDogma
    Do NOT get this unless you want to be assaulted by video ads that play automatically with sound as you scroll past them. I emailed the company several time complaining about this and they denied it! LIARS!!! I’m not renewing.
