  • Liked old app better Nov 22, 2017

    By Satman50
    As prior reviewer notes, I to updated my Ipad and the old app that is an exact replica of the newspaper appears to no longer be available. Instead in this app you can go to the upper right hand menu and click eNewpaper which boots you over to Safari and downloads the newspaper into Safari. Thats ok if you have wifi but say your getting on a plane, the old app kept the entire newspaper available to read offline in newspaper format but Safari doesn't do that.

    love it but the latest version seems to reset more often than previous versions. Still. I love that it has the feel of reading a newspaper.
  • Works OK with a few exceptions Mar 11, 2021

    By Kyle Kai
    I like the app and it seems to work well. The exception is if I download a paper, and then try to read it the next day, the app gets confused and keeps trying to download and read today’s paper. This situation is exasperated when offline. I reported this issue and the support was ludicrous. They asked “what browser am I using” when I specifically said it’s about this app. Worthless support.

    Great public interest articles ... nice to have an uplifting and positive article given our present day news climate ... no pun intended!

    Works good except for release of new paper which takes a few hours to completely download .alsi you have to start from page when refreshing...
  • App works just fine Apr 24, 2020

    There’s no bugs on the latest version. And you can click on articles to bring them up into an easy read format. I think i might resubscribe...

    Wish UT provided a brief summary of it's top articles, preferably to my email like the WaPo and LA-T do, then I could click on those of greatest interest and go to full story. It's okay, though.
  • Article Toggle doesn’t always work Sep 1, 2020

    By Bac@9315
    The eNewspaper section of the app has an article toggle that allows you to read the entire article without changing pages. It will stop working on today’s edition, but work on an archived edition or the next day’s edition. It’s doesn’t appear to be consistent as far as the day of the week.
  • I like it Feb 18, 2020

    Easy to use. I actually like that it doesn’t automatically download the e-paper. Saves space, and downloading is quick and easy if desired. Really like the full paper view.

  • Mix representative. Jul 21, 2020

    By JJMaci
    Worked OK however the developers were not consistent from day too day. Sometimes the print feature worked, sometimes not. Sometimes articles selected were collective, sometimes I had to search for the rest of the story. Sometimes a different article was interjected. Sometimes a specific article could not be selected. What I was not aware of, until reading the comments, that this “app” edition was in addition to the “on line” edition I am already paying for. I use to get home delivery, but they couldn’t do that well either. SDU bought out all the local papers, and it been unsatisfying since

  • Buggy app, very poor tech support Jun 18, 2020

    By scbaker
    The paper is great, but the app is very buggy. It’s a shame because when the app works it’s actually a great way to read the paper. Unfortunately it’s quite buggy (frozen interface, article clicks not responding as they should). Whenever I report an problem directly from the app it supplies all the technical detail tech support should need (platform, OS version, app version, etc). But every time, every single time, I get a generic response back (giving me nonsensical advice like “clear the cache and the cookies, try a different browser). I’m trying to be forgiving during this time when they probably aren’t fully staffed, but they clearly don’t care about fixing the app.

    I'm getting the same error as Kate V. I downloaded the appa and paid 7.99 via google play. I keep getting the error that I've reached my free reading for the month. I've called the Union Tribune customer service and they said to call Googloe. This is UNSAT. The UT offers a .99 cent monthly option. My bank posted the payment on 25 October and the online and mobile apps both don't work. HOW DO I CANCEL THIS SUBSCRIPTION???????
  • Continues to get worse Apr 4, 2021

    By 0 reviews
    Every time they update this, the workability decreases. I have been a subscriber for over 30 years, and used the digital version as soon as it was introduced. But I finally gave up after their last “upgrade”. Not responsive, cumbersome, and when I called about the new issues, the rep really wasn’t very well informed about it. His best guess was to reboot it, and he had no idea how to deal with the issues. I cancelled my subscription, it just isn’t worth the high blood pressure trying to get it to work.

    I can't access the newspaper. I keep getting a message that I've read all my free pages for the month yet I'm paying google $7.99 per month for unlimited access. Contacted UT customer service (absolute worst customer service!!!) and they said to contact google. Yet the app info says to contact UT. UT needs to get their act together or just close down.
  • Unlimited digital is not unlimited Dec 31, 2019

    By macguyincali
    Spent over an hour on the phone with customer service attempting to link my iOS subscription to the web access. Articles I get via email or social media on my desktop should be readable with the unlimited subscription according to their marketing materials. They kept insisting it was apple’s responsibility since I subscribed through the app. I was also told to subscribe via the web not the app (which coincidentally is twice as expensive). Passing the buck. They were unable to figure it out but told me they would look into it. Will update my review if they resolve the problem.

    Can never read an article without a Google ad covering at least one paragraph. I'm a subscriber to the UT and I understand that newspapers have ads. They don't cover article content with ads though. The app does. Thumbs down.
  • newspaper freezes regularly on iPad and iPhone Feb 5, 2021

    By Jim M new subcriber
    Two calls in 3 days to customer service (long hold time) they recommended deleting app and reinstalling. That works until you start turning pages then it stops to say you don’t have a subscription and you have no where to click to prove that you do. Please make your app more reliable we want to read the on line newspaper daily.

    I don't care for this app, the way the news is presented. It's awkward and time consuming and daunting to forward a story. I plan on not renewing this subscription although sometimes they beat the NYT and WaPo in breaking news.

    There should not be ads when I PAY for the subscription to the UT. The ads are very intrusive and they slow down the app and phone.
  • No Read Aloud Option through Updated App Jul 13, 2019

  • Great idea poorly executed Apr 4, 2021

    By MelonHeadSr
    The basic idea is great, but I cannot remember a day in the last year where there was not some kind of problem. Tapping on an article should open it in its own window. This is great because you can scale the font and makes it easier to read. If an article spans pages it all should show in this window. So, some articles will not open at all. Some open blank. Some open but do not include all the text (frequently stopping at the end of that “page”). Some are missing some or all of the pictures. The web version is generally less problematic, but often the same issues occur on the web version. Customer service is basically non responsive with the standard reboot your iPad and reload the app as a solution. This never works. I love the sports coverage, especially Kevin Acee on the Padres beat but I’d dump this app in a minute if there was an alternative.
  • Terrible App: Bring Back the Old One May 17, 2018

    By mistermikesd
    I do not want to read the paper in a web browser, which does not allow offline reading when not connected to WIFI. I do not want to have to convert the edition to a .pdf file and then store it in iBooks where the functionality then becomes extremely limited. The old app worked so well. Why was it changed? I am on a trial subscription now and may not continue, given the hassle it is to read the digital paper.
  • May 24, 2019

    By Ron Lingley
    interesting that your app has ads throughout for other online newspapers. why do I have to pay for this and still get inline advertising. in epaper mode, why can't I locate sections using the Index on your front page.
  • No offline version May 22, 2018

    By Buggy2222
    UT confirmed to me that they no longer support the Tecnavia App (the original one). Really annoying that they would stop supporting it WITHOUT informing their subscribers. Please support the original app. I can no longer download the paper to read offline when I am flying or somewhere without internet access. The download option in the e-newspaper does not fix this, it is buggy and often needs to reload which is impossible without internet connection.
