Subscription is a ripoff 1/5
I pay $9.99 monthly subscription but am still unable to view in app or via Facebook.
Good app, bias news 3/5
The app is good but the news is virtually all anti-Trump and anti-GOP. It's extremely one-sided.
Good interface but causes phone to heat up 1/5
Once again, my iPhone is getting really hot each time I use the the app. It has crashed multiple times recently.
Battery drainage? 4/5
Fantastic app. Best news source. I’ve been having increased battery drainage lately. The battery percentage drops approximately 1% every minute or two.
Essential beyond description 5/5
With NYT and other newspapers literally saving democracy.
App is terrible 1/5
The app repeatedly requests that I log in over and over again, then quizzes me five or six times to identify objects in a photo, and after all that, says that the service is not available and to try later. I expected much better performance from the Washington Post.
Customer service bad 1/5
I love the Washington Post and believe in its mission to deliver the news to the public the problem is when I recently change phones and tried restore my subscription to my new phone, the system set up to do that kept on giving me the message this function is not available right now please try again later that is unacceptable.
Be balanced 3/5
Be balanced. Don’t lessen the paper by favoring a side. Be critical of both and the same with praise.
By Pat O. T.
Excellent & timely reporting - largely free of bias. Great political investigative pursuit!
Terrific app 5/5
The fourth estate 5/5
Outstanding in-depth coverage of Washington, Federal government and local, national and international news. No one covers the workings of our government better, including investigative journalism of corruption and graft in Congress, the courts and the executive branch. As a federal employee for decades, I think it is not an overstatement to say that without a strong and independent Washington Post, we would no longer have a democracy in these United States.
Great great journalism! News I can trust in a time when all our fundamental institutions by a White House that has contempt for law, justice and wants to turn the beating heart of this great country into stone.
Flawed app 1/5
By bbc sport READER
Will not permit the saving of articles. When u loggoff, the saved articles disappear.
I have contacted them repeatedly about this. I think they have no intention of fixing it.
Classic App 5/5
I love that the Washington Post now allows access to all their apps with my digital subscription. On my iPad Pro the classic app is by far my preferred method of finding and reading the news, while the mobile app has some advantages on a smaller device, such as my cell phone. Great content and reporting, now easier than ever to read.
Great resource 5/5
By The Financial Pilot
I subscribe to the WP in traditional format and enjoy the feel of a real newspaper; however, the online edition is a convenient alternative when reading the full size paper is impractical or when I am away from home.
All good. 5/5
Great app, great news, what’s not to like?
Can’t login with Amazon Prime subscription 1/5
If you want to “monetize” your services, make sure that people who paid for them can actually login. How about testing, huh???
Most re recent update no longer open in my iPhone 5.
Problem solved by fast reply from developer. Thanks!
WAPO better. 5/5
By Swim Outdoors
Always a broad array of investigative journalism. Well written. Opinions cogent and diverse.
It’s Amazing, but… 4/5
By Jim Harrison
Can you do something about the ads? Every time I keep trying to open up any section other than what’s in my notifications I keep seeing a bloody ad for all your subscription plans/prices. I was able to look at, say, the opinion and Fact Checker sections before without any annoying ads; why the sudden change? Fix it. Now.
App stopped working 1/5
Near the end of last month (October) I got a popup that said i had reached my monthly limit of free articles. No problem, that seemed reasonable. Now it is November and I am still getting that message even though i have read zero articles this month.
Feedback review 1/5
By Glenn the guitar man
I have subscription that works well on IPad, but on IPhone, app doesn't seem to recognize that subscription. App keeps trying to make me sign up for a subscription. Very frustrating. Surely I only need one subscription to use both phone and tablet
Outstanding for the most part 5/5
By Jackie Evancho Caruso
My only complaint is sometimes News content is not that quick with new stories.
Reuters news has it beat, as far as updates.
Excellent Journalism! 5/5
Great articles written so well along with the top notch research supporting them.
Maybe the Number One Paper in America 5/5
But having lived in New York City for most of my adult life, I was reflexively inclined to think the Times was it. The Washington Flaming Post is SO good -- there is a hunger there, an incisiveness, connections, breakthrough writing. Glad they're both here, foundations deep in the truth.
Never works 1/5
By dom r.
Ordeal of preposterous magnitude. Idiotic mix between kindle web & iOS app options ensures IT NEVER WORKS. Been subscribed & paying for months without ever able to use app & waiting on phone for tech support
Fantastic News Source 5/5
This app is user friendly, has plenty of great features, and pumps out a lot of high quality content!
I'd highly recommend downloading it and enabling notification alerts to stay up to date and informed. The WAPO is great journalism at its finest. Buy a subscription to show your support but continue to use the black WAPO app over their other blue one (it's much more disappointing comparatively)!
Love WAPO 5/5
Love all your reliable confirmed legitimate news coverage. Appreciate the emails updates. Thank you Press! If it wasn’t for you we would be headed for a dictatorship no doubt. Thank God we have the Press, thank the Press! I think at this point in American history we should have a national holiday entitled National Free Press Day! Seriously. Thank you all you reporters for doing what you do Day in and day out, our great nation depends on you MORE THAN EVER! I get most of my news online and not Facebook or Twitter. I will never have a Facebook account because I will never want my political actions based on money served up by parties opposed to true democratic principles. That being said once again I congratulate you for all you are doing for America. Thank you!
No VA House of Delegates election coverage 1/5
There are more races than the governors in VA
Stay informed 5/5
The Post has a balanced editorial page so you can get multiple points of view.
Must have 5/5
By Boy Genius (of Lab fame)
If you don’t get it, you don’t get it.
Trusted Source 5/5
I trust this source and it’s quick to get the facts and updates to most relevant issues.
Solid App 4/5
Very stable, aesthetics are pleasing (especially compared to the other WaPo app), and the alerts are relevant. WaPo itself is among the great papers of our time following the Bezos purchase, and it's the only outlet I personally pay for a subscription to access.
My only suggestion would be to incorporate the comment section into the app. Right now, I can only read and write comments using my phone's web browser. At a minimum, the app could include a link at the end of each article that would open the article's comments in Safari or whatever default browser you may have. Still, the ideal would be to have the comment section within the app itself to make for a more seamless experience.
Keep it up WaPo! We appreciate your dogged reporting in this age of "alternative facts" and outright misinformation.
Love it 5/5
Read it everyday
Great news app 5/5
I enjoy the news alerts on my pc, iPad, and phone. Concise well written stories that are well vetted and believable. Thanks!
By Omar Podell
Their paywall is so strict that one can’t can’t even get a free article per day - and, although it’s a quality paper f’sure, they charge far too much for their subscriptions. It’s not the New York Times after all.
Great app for people who love news 5/5
A great app to keep up to date on the news.
Tough to read — too many intrusive adds 3/5
By Irene Pulfer
And the ads can’t be ignored. Dreadful.
One star for bugging me for a review. 1/5
Just stop it.
Individual mh 5/5
The best. Use it regularly.
We need the Post more than ever today! Democracy does, indeed, die in darkness.
I've follow you online since "Digital Ink"---dial-up. The dark ages.
Keep up the great journalistic work!
Fond of all your journalists--especially Jennifer Rubin! ✅
Timely and convenient 5/5
Nice to have news that's up to date all the time! And having it sent right to your fingertips is awesome!
Best News Source 4/5
Best news source available on the Internet, albeit a reader has to accept a leftward bias on political items. Way too much Trump bashing at expense of other newsworthy topics. Never cared for him, but now I feel for him -- he is the President.
Independent and Investigative 5/5
The Wash. Post App is the perfect substitute for the paper news when not at home. I trust the reporting and world perspective. Much more comprehensive than news program Apps.
Good work 5/5
Great app! I like the breaking news notifications more than the NYTimes’ notifications.
Obama one sided crap 1/5
By Good Ol Kentucky Boy
Why do your authors continue to side with Obama politics and behavior? We will only denigrate our society by pushing your BS to the masses. Have you ever watched the movie “idiocracy”? If not, then you should watch it and learn, rather than think you know what is our future.
incorrigible journalism 5/5
Great minds investigating with determination to enlighten us, that’s WaPo.
By China trip
Great reporting and opinions! Thank you WP!
What’s up with Facebook interface? 3/5
By Liz in Virginia
I have a subscription to the Post, and love using the app on my iPhone. I also follow the Post on Facebook, and would love to read the articles the Post offers on my timeline. But the paywall prevents that — and that paywall, while encouraging me to subscribe to the Post, does not give me a way to prove that I do indeed have a subscription. So frustrating!
Post beats Times hands down 5/5
I have been a bigger fan of the Times than the Post but this is changing. And for two reasons: Marty Baron is the country's best top editor and has recognized America is in a fight for our democracy in a way that the Times seems to miss AND the design of the Post for the iPad. It's serious reading well designed for serious readers. The Times new app looks like a comic book plus is its advertising is annoyingly placed. The Post is words; the Times is pictures
Democracy Dies in Darkness 5/5
This is the message that is first shown on the app, and The Washington Post does just that. The organization is simple, but allows for a wonderful experience in reading; however, it is the text itself that makes The Washington Post superb. They pieces are literary pieces of art, so delicately crafted to include so many details, yet still capture the big idea. 10/10
