  • Recent update causing freezes

    By JoshuaJP96
    After the most recent update the app regularly freezes, and the only method to restore stability for me has been to reboot my iPhone. Closing and restarting the app doesn’t work.
  • Freezes excessively

    By Rgb1947
    I have had this app for a long time and have been happy with it, but the last few days I would click on a link and the app would freeze. Very frustrating!
  • You can do better

    By ChicagoJake
    There are plenty of good news apps, this isn't one of them. For a subscription service I expect more.
  • Fix

    By Koji_B_88
    Not a reflection on the articles or content, but PLEASE fix the iPhone X app. If you click a cover photo, it’s very hard to exit back out because the “X” is hidden up in the notch behind the time. Also, what experience is that when swiping back you go to the previous article? Does anyone even read in that direction? It should just take you back to the previous page (article selection at least). Thank you!
  • Anyone else having trouble?

    I loved the old app. The new version worked okay, but lately it will not load on my iPad. I've deleted it. Reinstalled it. NOTHING. Dear Tribune: fix it. You can't get my paper delivered on time, and now I can't get my e-access. Fix this.
  • Really terrible

    By Djh dish
    Like a bait and switch to have a good app to download the paper to this awful app. I have never seen a company go out of its way to make things so much worse.
  • E Edition CRASHES All Too Often

    By BeeMiester
    I've been a subscriber of the Chicago Tribune for more than 45 years. I read both the print and e-version on a daily basis. I've also been involved in the IT world for close to 20 years as a business analyst and trainer. Did those in charge of this "enhancement" project even interact with the subscriber community for constructive feedback prior to the version implementation?
  • Right idea bad execution

    App for iPhone X has a white bar that blocks time and battery info towards top of app screen.. Please fix. I subscribe to the feed and would like the bare minimum fixed.
  • Crap App - Great Writing - Content Light - Too Many Blocking Adverts

    By Edge of the Borg
    I'm a digital subscriber - I pay for the right to access content. The app is intuitive to navigate, and the Tribune has a deep stable of talented and interesting writers; from Steve Rosenbloom, David Haugh, to John Kass. The Trib has a nice balance of world, national, and local content; along with a balanced point of view - not all left and not all right. By and large you can tell where the columnists are coming from. That's not to say a few self-righteous, in-your-face, insulting articles don't get published; those authors don't seem to last too long. I like my news like Sgt. Friday, just the facts; and a point of view is nice - but the views need to encompass both sides. And to be honest, I like other points of view other than my own; it helps me think and try to understand the other side. My frustration and what holds me back from more stars is the lack of content. Update: Advert content is out of control. Advertising on a web page by itself is not bad; the old paper medium was based on a model of content and ads. What’s wrong with the Trib’s Implementation is that you can’t get to content until you get the advert blitz. In the paper medium you have a choice of whether to read an ad or not. Not so with the online version; article content starts being downloaded; then ads start coming. When the ads get loaded, content jumps around and you’re constantly scrolling to find the content. And just when you think the article is ready, boom a full-screen timed pop-up appears; which cannot be dismissed until the timer expires. Net-net, great paper, content, and writers; display advertising makes the app intolerable. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY; go somewhere else for Chicago news.
  • Catch-22

    By Bojama6
    I updated the app as required. Then go into it, AND then get a message to update app to be able to continue to use it. WHAT THE? So I click on update app, and only option is open, since iPad knows it's been updated, but the app doesn't. So bottom line, I can't read the Trib anymore. Hello IT at Trib???
