  • Sf Chronicle for iPad app

    By Myxyzptlk
    After a painful, rocky beginning this app is doing what it's designed to do: deliver the paper. It now launches quickly and selected articles open almost immediately. My congrats to the tech crew for getting this worked out. Sorry that your bosses gave it the public before it was ready.
  • Unreliable

    By adam635
    So far, the app has ignored my request to load on my ipad, iphone, ignored request to change/re-new credit card info, and after a week of back and forth (and not the first time, a quarterly event actually) it still does not work.
  • Good

    By Dppellegrini
    Mostly good but doesn’t always update to current version/days paper/news
  • Poor Format

    By vano314
    I much prefer the replica format, where I can see the page. I don’t like the separate articles listed in a bullet point format, Correct me, please, if I’m simply not using this app correctly.
  • Aweful app, great content

    By AnnoyedLJD
    Some tech company needs to disrupt this paper. Hire their staff and build a modern app that’s fit for this city. Try copy pasting an article url into google docs. You can’t. All you get is a picture from the article.
  • Just doesn’t work

    By Sam from SF
    It takes forever to load and when it comes up it displays an old screen, even though the time and date are correct. It usually takes shutting down the app and restarting it more than twice to get it to load the current items. And often freezes and needs to be restarted.....again. There are many well designed newspaper apps out there. Why not just license one?
  • Sufficient

    By Thourdin
    I dislike having to create a separate login as a subscriber. I also find it difficult to go back to previous articles I read, especially those that came through the notifications. They often cannot be found on the front page, whether it be breaking news or traffic alert. However, I enjoy having access to local news and knowing what’s happening in the local community.
  • Much improved

    By Shazul2
    I used to have extended gang times for pages to load. It rarely happens now. I would like to see easier navigation between top stories such as Washington Post has.
  • Great Improvements

    By Bay Area Commuter
    The App has improved greatly, and is now a pleasure to use. Still some technical glitches occasionally slow down the app, but mostly, it gets out of the way and lets you get to the news you need.
  • Works fine for news

    By FO1958
    Most of the app works fine but I can’t get the bridge column through the app
