The content is good and, as a native Chicagoan, I'll always read the Tribune, but seriously, how many times can I view the same disruptive, full-screen pop-up advertisement? If that's not bad enough, I also have to scroll past this same ad multiple times to read stories. It happens enough that I'm considering abandoning the app for the digital edition only. Ads are necessary for your business, that's understood, but disruptive pop-ups take things too far and severely degrade the experience. Please stop!
I can rarely read more than an article or two before it crashes. While it's working it is slow to load articles and even slower to return from an article to the list of articles. I wind up going to other news apps. UPDATE 4/17: The app crashes much less than it used to, but loading articles is still painfully slow, almost as painfully as recalling how much I pay to subscribe. Oddly, ads load snappily. Article thumbnails take about 30 seconds each.
Worked fine for a while then became slow, balky, and would freeze.
Good stories, but app is painfully slow.
Journalism with integrity. It's not just about Chicago.
Content is good. Loading is so slow. Paid service, yet still wait for ads to load. Load content first. It's not a free app.
