Good idea, has issues
While the Tribune app is visually adequate, it loads incredibly slowly. It can take several minutes for the news pages to actually load and/or update. Disappointing, as it actually shows promise if it would load in a reasonable period of time.More
Only Missing a "Night Mode"
The app works great on my new 8" Lenovo Miix 2. It allows me to read articles both in landscape or portrait mode. My only wish was for a setting within the app where I can use a black background with white text for nighttime reading. Other then that, its a fantastic news app if you are in Chicagoans.More
Could be better
Stories load slowly and app hangs frequently. Text is not resizable and font is small which makes readability difficult. It is the only Chicago and NWI news app in the store, so improvements are necessary.More
Content now slow to load after update
Loads annoyingly slow on surface Rt, used to load quicker. Also subsections like news or sports will often freeze and app crashes.a Also you can't play videos. Some sections say they are a video but there isn't anything to play.More
Too good to be true!
This looks great and should be very functional once content is added. That said I expect a news app to have news. Pictures are great but content is king!More
Looks great. However, the actual website has a lot better info.More
This and the LA times app are the same thing, just different content. If the major newspapers are just going to outsource their content to generic app makers, you might as well just grab an RSS aggregator app instead. At least that way you can pull content from multiple places. As it is, there's nothing special or unique about this app other than branding. Also - the content loads very slowly.More
Improve Font Control
Overall like the lay out, but would like control of fonts as the NBC site uses.More
Application after a few days stops working. Launches shows splash screen for a split second then jumps back to start screen.More
A few layout issues with the back button over page title on articles with a white background. Also the ads are poorly placed. Looks like they are hap hardly hovering over the text and not thoughtfully place. Glad to see Chicago Tribune getting out a windows app so quick and the design of the main page is great! Can't wait to see where it goes! Will defiantly start reading the Tribune more as I dislike the website. It does crash sometimes/won't launch.More
