  • Not organized

    By Ctww
    The app has a banner across the top with "breaking news" when clicked upon takes the user to a different unrelated story.
  • Great news source

    By Mentalgerm
    I like that i only need one app for all of the stations. Great job and i cant wait to see any updated versions!
  • Forgotten app

    By Reviewer.no.5123
    I think the devs have abandoned this app. The headline section isn't updated anymore (2 month old stories). It's just a poor excuse of an app. The ads get in the way and basically this app just imbedded the actual websites in this app. At one time it was a decent "all in one" app, but now it's better to have several different apps for each of your favorite news sources.
  • Not bad!

    Fast and easy beats getting a real newspaper plus keep my fingers clean. Haven't run into problems if I do I'll change my review:)
  • Not readable

    By artkc520
    Chron app no longer is readable. There is some type of error, and the news feeds are throwing off a lot of unreadable small printed junk. Please fix!
  • A joke

    By Dhd-Houston
    This isn't an app. This stupid thing just embeds regular news websites into an app with their ad. Save yourself the headache and joke go directly to your news source... One less ad to look at. Can't beleive apple approved this.
  • Disappointed

    By manchild1979
    Where's Jennifer Reyna? I would have paid good money to see her on there.
  • Are you serious?

    By Petrogad
    This is horrible. Design is very poor, and slow. News is hard to read, and hard to continue to select.
  • Best news app

    By Puppet
    Best app ever for Houston news
