I really like this app. I no longer live in MT, but my family is still there so I try to follow the local news and this makes it easier to do when I'm not at home. the articles are fairly easy to read and I'm sure as more people use it they will upgrade their technology.

Worst experience ever

I recently signed up to subscribe to the home delivery of the Montana Standard. I was so excited to be able to get a daily paper . I am a senior and I live in Whitehall. After almost 2 weeks of not getting any paper, I had to call and call and call to find find out why I wasn’t getting any newspapers. Then I also had to repeatedly call to request a paper tube for delivery. Never did get it or any newspapers. Each time I called I was diverted to a foreign call center and was given different excuses. Complete frustration. I finally drove over to Butte to hopefully speak in person to someone. I was told that they wouldn’t deliver to my address, but would put up the paper tube 2 miles from my house and that and I would have to drive there to get my paper! That would be almost 4 miles round trip just to get the paper? That’s crazy! She said the driver didn’t want to drive the loop to where we live. I live on a horse shoe road. Needless to say I was so stunned I canceled the subscription. This was the most disturbing and disappointing experience I ever could have imagined. I’m very sad.
