  • Need the Chronicle everyday!

    By noi cant
    I read the SF Caron in digital everyday. Living on Central Coast gives me no paper option but the digital is great
  • Chronicle is the best way to keep up on the Bay Area

    By Pig mower
    I’m a long time Bay Area native. I’ve read the Chronicle for a long time and it’s quality is the best it’s been since the Herb Caen days. There are so many good writers: Ann Killion, Tom Stienstra, Bruce Jenkins etc. The app makes it easy to find all these great writers.
  • What gives?

    By nothingbuttrouble
    Have not been able to get on the app since the update. Not the first time this has happened! Tired of the problems!! Maybe it’s time to cancel!!
  • App no longer opens

    After the most recent update the app doesn't open for me. I love SF chronicle but they need to fix it
  • Newest version DOA

    By sjsjeidh
    I can’t load this app since the last update, it just spins its little wheel.
  • Won’t open

    By Eggiers
    The app has not opened on my phone for about a week. It just spins. Don’t like paying for an app that is unusable. Will cancel in a few days it it doesn’t start working.
  • Best for bay area transplant

    By Acdmolly
    $59.00 a year is a bargain and can keep up with local news. The updates make it easy to use and navigate. App is great, SF Chronicle can save the many editorials and opinion pieces. Just report the news
  • Work in Progress

    By Live4jazz
    The app is slower than my other news apps. Besides this minor inconvenience, I enjoy the convenience .
  • Bad app

    By AnnoyedLJD
    Low quality. Slow, ugly, rarely works.
  • Better than before.

    By Daniel SF
    Even after upgrading to version 2.1.3 it is slow, articles do not load, hangs. Same iPad runs NYTimes app without a glitch, so it is not my device capabilities, since a similar app can be written well. Very frustrating and embarrassing for a SF newspaper. Update for 2.3.7: the new update caused app to close when opened, so once I uninstalled and reinstalled, the app works. Once it is working, it has gotten better than a few years ago.
