  • Don’t waste your time

    As a paid subscriber, I expect a few ads, but this version lays on so many. I am greeted by an ad when I start fresh! And video ads all the time. It’s like the news is an after effect. This app/subscription is not worth it.
  • Can’t open any articles

    Paying Subscriber here, please fix
  • Full screen ad every time it opens

    By Jim B5664474394
    I pay for a subscription, and every time I open the app a full screen ad pops up. I can’t dismiss it (it’s timed), and I can’t see anything until it’s gone. This is not acceptable for a paying subscriber. It needs to be fixed or I’m canceling and getting a subscription to the Sun Times.
  • Bad

    By musiclover112233
    This app doesn’t work—just shows the hard code and not the actual article.
  • Terrible app

    By viachicago22
    This app is perfect for people who like unending loading screens and are looking for more frustration in their life. What a joke. Fix this.
  • Bad interface & bad performance

    By I'dhjkkfg
    Like the other reviewers, I am multiple having problems today. I can’t size the articles and I get prompted to get my free trial upon turning to page 2. Logging in works and then the problem repeats. Uninstalling and reinstalling is a time consuming nuisance that also does not work. Even when the app is “ Functional” downloading for off line use almost never works well. Please fix this app or I will take my business to NYT or WSJ.
  • Hey Tronc!

    This is the digital age. I can take the periodic freezes and crashes, but PLEASE fix this app so at least I don't have to log in daily. And when you tell me you're going to email the paper daily, do it.
  • Keeps on crashing

    By Rgb1947
    After multiple updates, through who knows how many iOS versions, articles randomly refuse to load, and the app freezes. When you close the app, you can reopen it, but after reading a few articles, the problem recurs. It makes me reluctant to bother using the app.
  • Worst App Ever

    By Mcr65
    I have battled with the Tribune technical staff for the last three months over access to the digital paper with NO HELP. I was a subscriber for over a year with no problems until June of 2018. I've been locked out of the app essentially since June of 2018 even though my subscription through iTunes says I have unlimited access. I have deleted the app, reinstalled the app, restored purchases and followed everything the Tribune staff has recommended without any resolve. The technical staff follows a script and doesn't deviate. I've been told the problems are with iTunes because they are third party vendor and the Tribune doesn't get their money. They've also told me I should pay $24.32 for the paper but I don't get the paper. I've never been so frustrated over an app. Essentially the last three months I've paid for digital access and only been able to get access for a couple of weeks. Do not waste your money on this app.
  • Stories won’t load

    By danrules
    When I click on stories to read then, I get stuck on a loading animation and have to forcibly close the app.
