  • Worst app ever

    By lfdon
    Beyond annoying that for the amount of money a subscription to the Tribune costs that this is the best app they can come up with. The format is horrible and it crashes on a regular basis. Wish I could give it zero stars.
  • App needs to be scrapped

    By Xraylfh
    Besides it not being as easy to use as the old app, it now crashes constantly.
  • Worst App Ever!

    If there was a more difficult way to read the news online....not sure what that would be. Cancelling my home delivery as a result of this dumpster fire!
  • Please go back to e newspaper

    By ChaseTheRaysFan
    This version of the app is not great you have to go to safari to get the e newspaper now which doesn’t have great controls and sometimes through safari when I try and download the newspaper I have issues getting all the pages. When it works, reading through safari is okay and a lot better than reading through iBooks, but it would be best to have an app for doing this rather than trying all that other stuff.
  • Content is rarely updated

    By Piesfrog
    Why make an app and then not update the news content? Most of the news in the app is a week old. If you want anything recent you have to go to the web site. I wonder what the Tribune is thinking with this app???
  • Needs improvement

    By Feeb621
    Average at best.
  • 👎

    By Tribsssssux
    This app is right out of the Reagan era. Just like the Trib Editorial Board's regressive views. Hard to find "paper view". Where can you find past issues?!? I don't know... Waste of time and storage.
  • I wish I could give zero stars

    By Bathsheba50
    Horrible, slow, never loads completely, inconsistent performance, unexpected crashes, blank pages that never load, and involuntary closings, unreliable and frustrating. Once upon a time in the past, it was a pleasure to use, especially on the morning commute. Now, it is a never ending exercise in futility, disappointing every day. The app needs to be completely re-created to solve the issues. Patches and band-aid type fixes will not solve the problem of an app with this many problems.
  • WOW

    Disaster, disaster,disaster,disaster,DISASTER, DISASTER, etc, etc,etc ,etc, ad infitum!!!!!!!
  • Trib--Listen To Your Customers

    By FormerTribFan
    I'm surprised that Trib has been so oblivious to unanimity of dissatisfaction. There are 175 reviews listed. BUT -- about 40-50 are reviews of the discontinued app, many from 2015, most of which are positive. The reviews of the NEW app include just one positive review (someone from Florida who was shocked he/she could actually get home news on the internet), and the remainder extremely negative. The consensus is pretty amazing. Not one customer happy about the disorganized newsfeed feel, the utter disorganization of articles and columns, the anonymous listing of articles -- (you don't know the author until you open the article), the inability to quickly locate favorite columnists, etc.. Trib, please, listen to your customers.
