What a difference the update makes!

I wrote a one star review of this app a while back as it was nearly unusable. Articles would not open, links were broken, and the search feature was useless. I thought it only fair to update that review in light of the tribunes efforts in updating their app. They have done a really nice job. The app is smoother, every article that you tap on opens, and the links to other articles and information seem to work. A minor complaint is that the ads are a bit intrusive and take up a lot of physical space. However, they do not cover up the content like they used to in the past, so I suppose that is a win. All in all a major improvement and far superior to their past product. Thank you, Tribune!

Peculiar missing feature

Downloaded the app and it worked fine, BUT. There is no way to access the comic page (I like to read Doonesbury). I just spent 30-40 minutes talking to Trib Tech support and the best they could do, after trying several things and having me delete and reinstall the App, was to get me to the front page of the paper and having me move through the entire paper to page 41. The tech person specifically said that was the ONLY WAY to access the comics section! Weird IMO. And a pain.

Difficult to follow college sports on app.

The Tribune app is OK and I would probably rate it a 4 or 5. However, if you want to follow news regarding college sports, it’s a 1 or 2. This is true for any Chicago area college - Northwestern, Loyola, DePaul, even Illinois. Click on Sports and you get all the pro teams. There is no option to find stories regarding sports. You can use the search feature and type in a specific school, and you will get stories related to that school, but they are not listed chronologically. The first couple of stories that pop up may be weeks old.
I’ve communicated with the “contact us” option 2-3 time on this, and they tell me there is a “College Sports” option. I’ve sent them screen shots of what I see, and go no reply to that.
