  • San Francisco Chronicle

    Love the e-edition where I get an actual newspaper to open and read. Several stories catch my eye on the e-edition that I would have by passed if presented in the computer - line by line - format. Well worth the price. If I lived where I could get the print edition, I would.

    Not the paper I liked 20 years ago. Not balanced, too slanted with most important news.
  • Over 45 years!

    I’ve been a morning Chronicle subscriber for well over 4 decades! Fortunately my delivery person has it on my driveway before 5 am every morning, so I get up early to enjoy my Chron and coffee!
  • Dark mode needed

    If you want me to read this paper it needs night dark mode.
  • A Constant Irritant

    By BadFaith32
    Reading online, even with a current digital subscription, is a constant fight with pop-ups blocking content to offer subscriptions. The SFChronicle should be able to do better.
  • Good Journalism - Mediocre App

    By mberona
    Hi, I would give five stars if only the app worked better. I find that sometimes the article skips back to the beginning when I’m partway through. Also, when I tap notification links for articles, it opens the app, but then I get a blank screen.
  • The Best Way to Keep In Touch

    By SBA-retired
    Since our daughter lives overseas, we have joined her for a couple of months to reconnect in the waning (we hope!) days of the pandemic. It has been very comforting to stay abreast of the news both nationally as well as in the Bay Area. As an older person I love having the option to flip through the paper page-by-page as through I was sitting in my wing chair back in the Bay Area. It helps both of us feel connected to both friends and family on both sides of the world. Having the daily news sourced both locally and from SF gives us a broader perspective of world event.
  • iPhone version doesn’t save subscription

    By jen in the wine country
    I have had the iPad version for quite a while, which worked great. But on the iPhone it would never would save my subscription on the iPhone after successful linking, and and then say I used up my free read for the month. Now my iPad is broken, and stuck with a non-working subscription on my iPhone. Very unhappy with the app, going to have cancel this subscription.
  • Wretched newspaper

    By Ma Gi Chol
    It just keeps getting worse and worse.
  • Bookmarking with articles would be great.

    By Boyd N
    Everytime I need to switch to another app it is necessary to refind my place in an article.
