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.

Why bad reviews?

I have no idea why so many people feel that quality news articles should be “free” of charge. Do they not understand that these reporters, the ones who write the stories local to Butte, need to make a living in order to live there and report on the news? If you want news at no cost, there is plenty of it, scattered across the internet, poorly written, sources not cited, incomplete, full of opinion passed along as fact, pop-up ads covering portions of the screen… come on!
This particular app works exactly as described. I can view the daily news in two different forms: the way it is presented in the newspaper format with color photos or in a electronic newsfeed style typically presented on webpages. I receive an email alert every morning to link to the news. What more do people want?
I didn’t intend to keep my subscription. I created one simply to gain access to past obituaries so I could look up one from a friend who had passed in 2016. But I have to say, I find myself logging on almost every day, even though I live 120 miles to the east, because I feel the editor has created a very reliable and trustworthy source of daily news.
It seems that many of the reviews are many years old. Perhaps the app didn’t originally work well and they have subsequently fixed the bugs. It functions great now and is exactly as described. I highly recommend it.

Won’t log me in

App won’t let me log in. My login works online but not the app. Please fix or I’ll just cancel my subscription. Sadly this problem seems consistent with a lot of other reviews😖
