Deteriorated to Worthlessness and Irrelevance
As a 12 year daily reader of the Chronicle on this app, I have lived through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the very ugly. For many of the earlier years, the problems primarily were with the apps broken functionality, instability, and accessibility. These early problems have been largely resolved by updates in recent years. Today, the problems relate to poor reporting of the journalism. As many other reviewers have highlighted, front page articles are far from the major news of the day. Instead, it is filled with insignificant local stories that remain on the front page for days at a time. How worthless is a digital newspaper whose front page stories are last week’s school board news!
I suspect that the Houston Chronicle management has lost all interest in this iTunes app. Instead, they now offer their own digital subscription that is a high performing presentation of the day’s news, as printed in their daily print editions. I’ve taken advantage of a 6-month trial subscription and it is far better than the iTunes Chronicle app.
We apologize for the issues you are experiencing. Some readers have reported issues after updating the app to the latest version from a previous version. In several cases, deleting the app and reinstalling the app resolved the issues. Please give that a try and contact appsupport[at]chron.com if you continue to experience issues.
The Houston Chronicle is a great newspaper. It is so Houston!
I’ve always been a newspaper reader — having been born in H-town I’ve read them all and still read the Houston Press. I want to know what’s going on and seeing the items in print allows you to make decisions as to what to do and when it is happening.
I’m really a fan of the Thumbs on Saturday and Chris Tomlinson (business writer and “Forget the Alamo” author) always makes me think. The news is always there to read and digest and the opinions are fair and will make you think. And I can’t forget the Crossword puzzles—they keep your vocabulary skills sharp.
Support local news organizations. They keep politicians on their toes. Thanks Chronicle!!
I’ve read the Chronicle for at least 30 years, and the Houston Post before that. My educated observation is that this newspaper has become highly politicized, and, like most major media outlets, now pushes a decidedly left leaning agenda. The editorial board is a steadfast cheerleader for the Biden agenda: right, wrong, or indifferent. Likewise the AP, NYT, WP, and unnamed others. I’m educated and fair minded, but I no longer enjoy reading the Chronicle; I now read it only because I have a perceived responsibility to monitor the slow decay of this once fine nation.

What’s wrong with the Chronicle
This news has become so Liberal that it’s hard to read. Why not have more than one view. I like to think and form my on conclusions. I know the real news from fake one view reporting. I no longer enjoy readying this paper, and long for the days when we had a choice, like when the Houston post was available. Many days I throw this paper directly in the trash, after reading the headlines. I have to go to alternative sources to compare and form my own conclusions. U cannot tell me how to think.
App good, subscription bad
The app works really well but it should be as easy to cancel as it is to subscribe. I was able to subscribe online with a few clicks. To cancel I had to go to the app where it glitched looking for my account info, follow a link to the website, find out I need to call (with a phone link that doesn’t work by the way) and then spend almost 10 minutes on the phone with 2 different people before I could get my subscription canceled. This process should be a lot easier.
