What's New in Version 2.1.2
iOS 6 fixes
A heavily advertised and poorly constructed news app
This app is mostly just an advertisement app with most content attempting to link the readers to some other ad. The most frustrating of ads is when the all links to the iOS App Store while reading an article. I had to delete the app and will likely not gather Billings news from the website in the future either.
Auto launching ads are unacceptable
The latest update to this app made things even worse. Nearly every time you start into a new story an ad auto launches that takes it out of the app, and into the Apple App Store. If you want to show me ads, that's fine, but why on earth would you make me leave your app? Just use the regular mobile site, forget about the app.
Subpar Application & Newspaper
Terrible newspaper with an even worse app. They've changed the app so you can only navigate to the latest news, sports, obituaries, and the worthless more button. I like being able to navigate to crime and city sections. Want to read about important national news? It won't happen in the Billings paper!
