I recently downloaded this app despite the terrible reviews. Why bother? Have been using e-edition on iPad and it is no longer usable. Likely due to terrible software programming, the e-edition just doesn’t work on either Chrome or Safari on my 2018 iPad. Unable to scroll. Two finger gestures dont work. Can turn page and that is about it. Try reload, turn iPad off and on. Nothing. Used to at least work on chrome but that died too in last few weeks. So… tried app. The good: The app does work for e-edition. You can scroll, zoom, turn pages. the bad: ads are overwhelming. There is a bar at the top taking up around 25% of screen for 1 ad. Ridiculous. Cannot dismiss. I dont mind some ads. But I do pay for this paper so the app should work without such egregious marketing. App is clearly old, very basic as others have said but now only way to get my paper on iPad.
I have tried to stay with the Missoulian ever since it went digital. I know the transition has been tough but come on guys, you’ve had enough time to adjust now and it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I hang in for the little bit of local news you print but I’m close to giving you up. Not worth the cost.
and it left a lot to be desired. With all the quality apps out there, you would think they’d be able to provide a decent version that provides access to more than a few stories. No wonder readership is down.
I really dislike this latest version of the app. I do not care for the layout at all. The previous version had a better layout and was a lot easier to use and scan the articles. With this version I’m no longer using the app and am thinking of deleting it.
You guys need someone to update the app regularly. Ever since iOS 14 has come out, you cannot read any articles. This isn’t the first time this has happened. I would give you 0 stars if that were an option. 1 star is being generous. Step your game up!
This new reworked app is useless. I would check a few times a day & now there’s no local news. I would like to think that the local newspaper would cover local news & issues. Odds are that I will delete it completely.
App must have been developed in Lower Slobovia. It’s expensive and requires frequent requests for help. Lee wanted to raise the price 100% last January, settled for 30%. Meanwhile, the app woes continue.
I stupidly updated to the new app and really wish I wouldn't have. The "download article" button doesn't work anymore and the downloads are no longer on the main toolbar. Not that it matters though, since that doesn't even work. Next stop.....charging for the app. The upgrade was a major downgrade. If they fix the bugs it's a great app, if not, buy the paper edition or pay for the online edition. This app is crap now.
I have gotten trapped in articles several times with no options other than to read or submit posts on the article -no way back to the main page, none! I've had no choice but to delete the app and reinstall it to get back to the home page. Fix the glitch!
This app is atrocious. It constently freezes because of the ad service garbage that won't stop opening up the safari app. The Missoulian itself is also a true rag in terms of the articles published, but atleast the psychos that frequent the comments boards every second of their lives make it interesting. TL;DR download the kpax app. It's good old fashioned, plain Jane boring news.
I have paid for a full digital/paper subscription to the Missoulian. This app is the biggest pile of ads ever. Along with the usual popover ads yo have to wait to dismiss, at random times, scrolling content will just open a link to an app in the App Store, and you have to go back to the Missoulian app again. Really terrible.
This app is probably the most useless newspaper app on my phone. The content is practically non-existent and what little content available is mostly national news. The whole point of a "Missoulian" app is supposed to be Western Montana related news as the prime content. Why bother?
I wish there was a way to disable the notification function like every other app on my devices. Guess what; I don't always want to know what the UM girls soccer team is up to. I guess I'll just delete the app all together.
You can get more and faster local news from one of the tv station apps. This one should not be advertised as local news, it's pretty much world wide and irrelevant fluff. Thinking about just deleting it.
This is possibly one of the worst apps. I finally deleted it. They leave some of the same articles on for 3 or 4 days. Most of their articles are either national or international. Typical Missoulian...NO QUALITY!!
I’ve had this app for years. Today I went to the app and attempted to read articles, opinion, etc. only to find I need to subscribe and pay $18.99 per month with noheads up on that. I will be deleting the app because it’s not worth nearly $20 per month, and the digital quality is poor.
