  • App works for me

    By bgdtzkjlp
    Overall, I’ve been happy with the app. I haven’t had login or anything other significant problems with the app on my phone, iPad or PC. I would like a search function and the ability to save or bookmark articles.
  • Terrible app

    By Summersonata
    If it remembered my login, it would be great. But every SINGLE time I try to access articles, it says I need to link my account. I link it, it should be good, then nothing. About ready to cancel our membership overall because of this!
  • Don’t get the whole newspaper

    By Fluid Express
    Two major problems. First, when I click on almost any article labeled “Feature “, I get told that I’ve reached some limit and need to subscribe. Well, I am subscribed through the app! There seems to be a disconnect between the app and some types of articles, but not others. Second, when I try to click through to a link in an article I’m reading, the link takes me to the web version of the paper, and again I’m asked to subscribe in order to read the linked material. This is seriously dysfunctional.
  • No access, just the bill

    By Sqr1295
    I pay the app subscription fee but still see warnings that I only have 2 articles remaining.
  • Where’s the Crossword?!

    By Gpvpgaryspaul
    The old version was buggie and slow, but easy to see article lists on a side column, allowed you to read the issue from up to a week ago, and had one of the best interactive crosswords anywhere. Please bring the crossword back!
  • Seems web developer ignored previous feedback

    By Aldus M
    The Chronicle keeps asking for app feedback but fails to deliver. I and others have been suggesting a search function FOR YEARS like on the NYTimes or the WSJ. In May the developer responded to another reviewer that they “are working on a search function”. Still no searching ability. A new development is now the articles are download painfully slow and there is no “progress” Indicator that anything is happening.
  • Customer service

    By clancy Kat
    Terrible customer service. Was on the phone for 20 minutes trying to Log into e edition. Not fixed. Arrogant person on the you’re end who seem to not have any patience or understanding. Seriously thinking of canceling. Kathy
  • Terrible Functionality

    By CandiceNovember1990
    I have had problems with this app since downloading it over a year ago. It constantly shuts down or freezes, it tells me that I’m signed in but limits my access to articles, won’t let me sign out and sign back in again to try to fix it, it’s very hard to search for articles, and is just all around a bad experience.
  • Pay to Play

    By Darshmiester
    The first thing you see when opening the app is the $5 monthly agreement to read unlimited articles, which I think is nonsense. If you choose to not pay you only get to read 3 articles a month, which is useless for someone who wants to be updated on the daily issues/events occurring in our world. Unless you want to pay $5 a month to read articles, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.

    By Semper Paratus 333
    After many fairly minor annoyances for months navigating the Comical’s e-edition, I reached the breaking point today. Attempting to open today’s SUNDAY edition, yesterday’s SATURDAY edition repeatedly opens. It’s just not worth the aggravation; I’ll be spending $10 a month on the San Jose Mercury instead.
