App Reviews

  • Takes forever to load

    By Garyfan2
    I really get tired of waiting for something to show up in the blank screen so I often move on to another news source. I am seriously reconsidering my subscription due to this problem. Which is a shame, because when the page loads, I do like the content.
  • Is it supposed to work?

    By BattleRed
    If you like reading a blank white page this is the app for you. I'm assuming they no the app doesn't work & somebody is trying to fix it. They said they did, they didn't. I'm giving it another week then I'm canceling.
  • It's a joke

    By Sassy4567
    Terrible. Freezes, does not open properly and is just plain slow. Old one was much better.
  • Doesn't open

    By Russtdo
    This is very disappointing. The app still has to be opened several times before it will work
  • Still ....... Worst app ever!!

    By Leslie6404
    Just downloaded latest update. Have opened and closed 5 times already. Still yesterday's news. So what bug fixes were handled?? Maybe need new IT people??!!
  • Too slow

    By Jim@Blairfirm
    Takes forever to load when it will load!!!
  • Horrible

    By Pbc1999
    Most user unfriendly app. Freezes. Won't load. Front page isn't first to load when it does load. Many users saying the same thing, so why no fix? Updates NEVER address these issues. Please pay attention to your paying customers and fix this mess. 9/11 - Have spent almost ten minutes to get app to open. Then, when it FINALLY does, the articles won't open. What a waste of time. Worst app to deal with.
  • Worst news app I've ever used

    By Chelhere
    Extremely slow to open and to load stories. Crashes often. I give up more often than not. I read more Chronicle articles on news aggregator sites than on this app. I keep trying because this is my hometown paper, but it is SO FRUSTRATING. Please buy some decent software, Houston Chronicle!
  • Crashes regularly

    By Magnus Foote
    Does anyone at the Chronicle use this app? Routinely crashes, articles don't open. Great if you like watching spinning balls.
  • Worse with every update

    By 17 year subscriber
    I've taken the Chronicle for 17 years and have used this app for something like 7 years. Each app update is a step backwards as it gets harder to find the latest news among the repeated items, takes 2 or 3 boots of the app to get it to actually display stories beyond the front page, etc. Then the Chronicle decides to remove the comics from the app. Makes me wonder if this is all a plot to drive subscribers back to the print edition or to move to other news sources.
