  • Decent app, provincial content for giant metropolis

    By Diegofinni
    The paper app works fine. Content is rarely updated, so you might find typically only 30% new content in each section from the day before. The paper itself is just pitiful. For a city that prides itself in being the 4th largest city in the US the largest paper in town feels like just one step above your high school newspaper. Not sure they understand the meaning of “international section” because there is none in the app and in the paper itself you might missed the news buried among giant ads. Houston has literally hundreds of thousands of expats and foreigners living in the area but the paper pays no attention to what happens beyond our borders. Oh yeah, and if you don't like football don't bother with the sport section. Want to know who won Winblendon, Monaco F1, Champions League, Boston Marathon? Find it somewhere else. Not in this paper.
  • Good OpEds

    Wish they had more local coverage of nearby counties especially local elections but happy with what they do have.
  • App is better now but content is worse

    By Nolabelhere
    Although the app is more stable now there is not as much content as before and there is more content from HC on Apple News+ than in the app. Save your money and get News+. Seeing the same headlines for 3-4days straight is boring!

    Banner ad is not able to close 2inch space under the banner restricts viewing of e-edition
  • Web page

    The platform is unstable each time sections are changed size must be re set. Reporting is obviously not balanced.
  • Garbage

    By msm@1971
    The only reason I keep a digital subscription is because of the sports section. I read the paper version for over 30 years. Everything outside of sports has a left leaning view (far left a lot of times) just like most of the media and has gotten a lot worse over the years. Obviously, you do not know you subscriber base which explains your poor overall performance. I wish you were what newspapers used to be, report the news without any political viewpoint. When politics are involved, include view points from both sides.

    Every time I leave the page I need to revalidaye my subscription. Very frustrating. May be they can get some lessons from NY Times and Wall Street Journal

    The Houston Chronicle used to be a newspaper. It has turned into nothing more than a propaganda sheet for the democratic party. We no longer can even read front page “news” stories that are not editorials. Some of the biggest stories that affect our very democracy are not even covered: The Russian collusion investigation findings. The Oval Office directing the FBI to spy on the incoming administration. Biden’s quid pro quo with Ukraine. Weaponizing the IRS against conservative organizations. The shutdown of coverage of the findings from the Hunter Biden laptop. The very real instances of fraudulent and unlawful conduct in our last election. The snap impeachment, conducted without even a single witness being called. I have found no mention of John Sullivan since the riot. No condemnation of the shutdown of speech on social media platforms. The Chronicle is complicit in all of these abuses of our democracy. You are only complicit now; you should realize that it’s only a matter of time until your “news” coverage will be dictated to you. A free and fair press is the guardian of democracy. Your job is to hold the politicians in check, and report abuses. Do. Your. Job.
  • Have to log in everytime

    Every time I open the app I have to log in. It is not the way it should be.
  • Reading Enjoyment

    The newspaper is easy to navigate. Headings are all there. You can easily bring up earlier editions and the search works well.
