    Published date: December 8, 2017

    The content is good and, as a native Chicagoan, I'll always read the Tribune, but the auto-start videos have got to go. Not only are they annoying and disruptive, they also make your app a huge data hog. Please let me decide if I want to watch the video by tapping on it or opting in for auto-starts. Please stop!

    I love the Chicago Tribune and the app, but I would appreciate it if the app would clear the alerts after being read. I find it very annoying to have already read alerts "stored" under the "bell" on the home page. If I have read the alerts, why store it in another place?? Full Review

    The Tribune content is great, but this app leaves a lot to be desired. It crashes a lot, there are plenty of quirky bugs, and the scrolling feels bad. Many articles have auto playing videos which is already a big no-no, but the stop button is infuriatingly hard to press. They ought to take a few lessons from the New York Times app. Full Review

    I love the content, but this app is really buggy. Lots of crashes and issues with video content. Full Review

    Bruce Erickson Published date: November 19, 2017

    Portrait mode only? Frequent reboots? Pop-up ads for subscribers? Subscribers no longer able to open eNewspaper articles? I repeat, subscribers no longer able to open eNewspaper articles (11/19/17 while travelling)? What's the point in subscribing if you can't read the actual paper? Absolutely SUCKS! Full Review

    Stephen Czyz Published date: November 9, 2017

    Recent update (October) locked all the stories into portrait mode. On a tablet, that's bad. Please fix, ASAP. Till then, 2 stars at best. Full Review

    I enjoy the stories are updated frequently. I don't have any technical problems. And the reporting is good. Overall organization is fine. I subscribe to the paper version as well, and they're complimentary. Full Review

    Loading...loading... I would have uninstalled this thing right away if it weren't my local paper. I get almost all my news from The Guardian. Now with a later version the loading was okay for a while, now pretty slow again, and it likes to forget I'm a subscriber! Full Review

    Dan Czajka Published date: October 12, 2017

    App not working properly. I've subscribed to New App for at least a year and now I am unable to access all of the stories. Customer Service is saying that 4.99 per month gets you 5 articles. If that's the case, I will cancel this service. Full Review

    I turned off sports notifications because I only want real news but it pushes sports notifications every couple of hours. Otherwise, it's clean and easy to use. Full Review

    Mary Jo Wildman Published date: October 7, 2017

    I really like the old version where I can open the app to a full newspaper, flip the pages as if I'm reading the paper paper. I like being able enlarge the article on that page instead of the current version this app utilizes. Full Review

    Brandon Meng Published date: August 15, 2017

    Why is it that I have to use this instead of the red-eye app. You should've left that app alone, as it's difficult to find the red-eye articles now. This app does not load and is incredibly boring to look at. Idk how tronc can claim to be web-first when their app is so far behind the competition. I assume the developers are doing the best they can with the tools provided, so management needs to recognize that this is not complete yet. Full Review

    Dean Skora Published date: September 2, 2017

    Bad performance in paid mode, too limited in free. Stories will not scroll until ads load, and ads take far too long; links frequently don't launch; app crashes far too often for a basic, no-frills news reader (again, the ads). If this is "new media" Tronc, they don't have the tech down yet. Full Review

    Mary Nash-Pyott Published date: September 15, 2017

    seamless for me, and i'm rural with spotty networks. No stuttering, no intrusive pop-ups so far. Not sure what is happening to other subscribers, to see intrusive ads. Maybe they changed that since? Full Review

    Website pushes too much advertising even to subscribers. User experience is terrible because of the intrusive pop ups and loading time. Just awful. Full Review
