Ratings and Reviews

Terrible app, poor newspaper

Montana Mike

This is the worst news app out there. When you open it up, it sometimes automatically switches you to the App Store to download some app they are advertising.

It is now almost impossible to actually read a story through all the ads that pop up. The ads are simply overwhelming.

The other issue is how little actual Butte or Anaconda news is reported. Mostly stories from their sister Lee newspapers. This newspaper is dying and has laid off a large percentage of their reporters. Sad....

Like this app


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.

Small bug


Overall the app is pretty good, but there is one small glitch. After you open the app and go to news, there is a gap. What you have is news article, a gray bar and then a white space with nothing.
