Good source of news, especially federal government 4/5
By D Christopher 88
This is once again among my favorite news app. It is especially nice by giving news about the federal government (congress, exec branch, etc) that is not available elsewhere. I wish there was a section devoted to Congressional committee activities and fewer ads in the middle of articles.
Washington Post is my source for News 5/5
There is no better news source in America for information, insight and analysis of national political action involving our three branches of government.
Fantabulous news app 5/5
Great articles, good notification system
Excellent unbiased news 5/5
By Grand time!
I appreciate the thorough, unbiased news entries. My "go-to" news source.
Slow app 1/5
By John cooperfhgfurfh
So slow. Always crashes. Articles aren't right, images don't load properly.
Crossword puzzle 5/5
By skeptical crossword puzzle fan
The recent changes to the digital crossword puzzle are disastrous. The puzzle keeps moving, occasionally disappearing and often losing the keyboard. The Post should go back to where it was a year ago
This app changed my mind! 4/5
I was considering dropping WP simply because the app i was using crashed and hung and sometimes just didn't load. Then this app was made available to digital subscribers and I am very happy.
It is intuitive, smooth, and has not crashed or hung yet. I love the content of WaPo but having an app to read it that works well has made me stay with them.
Get this one if you subscribe. Don't get the other one.
Constantly makes me sign in again 1/5
That says it all.
Great content 3/5
But I need to drop stars for the app. I find that sometimes sections don't update for days. Also sometimes content is completely missing in a story. If that's fixed it would be great.
Great app 5/5
Best quality newspaper app, with a speed and edginess that leaves others behind.
Great place for news 5/5
The Washington Post has been a beacon of truth and has the ability to go beyond the headlines or tweets to bring truth to power and the American public.
Inconsistent Background Loading 2/5
This app is excellent for those articles that it loads, but it frequently doesn't load anything new! I've been using it since it was released and expected that it would load all new articles in the background either when I opened it or, if it was already open, as those articles became available. Sadly, neither of these are true. The only reliable method to load a page is to select it, which requires a live connection to the internet. Absent that, reading articles is a crapshoot. Why can't the Post create an app that grabs EVERYTHING in the AM?
Can't find the crossword 3/5
Otherwise it's a great paper.
No delivery...again 1/5
By PaPa ShaG
I like to read the Post when it actually gets delivered to my house. This is the third time in a couple months...Unacceptable!
More subscriber options please! 5/5
Great journalism. Just wish WP offered more ways to support their digital journalism. How about one time donations (like Guardian) or pay as you can or tiered access?
Fanatically biased 1/5
By Goober III
Next to the NYT, this newspaper is unfair, unbalanced and rarely resents both sides of an issue. The WP is more of a commentator than journalism. I am not great Trump lover but it overwhelms me when I see that 85% of all political articles are skewed against Republicans and esp DT. It's not true journalism.
Don't force subscribers to view ads 1/5
I love The Washington Post, but I don't like being forced to view/navigate ads. I subscribed to the Premium Digital service, which is not cheap, about $180/yr. Yet I still have to contend with large ads in the middle of my articles. I like to scroll with my thumb while I am reading, and it gets tiring to accidentally hit an obtrusive ad, which launches the browser and opens up the advertiser's web site, and then I have to find my way back to the article I was trying to read. Please, developers, offer a setting for subscribers to not be bothered by ads. Then I will return my rating to 5 stars. Thank you.
Essential Daily Reading 5/5
The Post cuts to the chase and offers the most intelligent, in depth coverage of the news. I can't imagine understanding today's world or politics without reading it each day.
Best Digital & Print News 5/5
By Cruzin man
Always excited to launch the App knowing that I will get up-to-date information by the best Journalist.
Impossible to log in 1/5
I have a very hard time logging in to this app. It's incredibly frustrating.
By Citizen Claire
Thank you for being such a bright and dependable light in these dark times. Your reporting illuminates the hypocrisy of our times and confronts prejudices that are truly unAmerican.
Excellent app! 5/5
I count on this app for in depth, thoughtful and breaking news.
Real News 5/5
WaPo provides the most comprehensive reports. They are one of the best news outlets and always provide the breaking news. I turn to WaPo when I want truthful reporting from real journalists.
Much improved revised app 5/5
Excellent fidelity with the hard copy and web editions.
Let iPhone readers leave comments, too. 3/5
Dear Washington Post: It looks like you have canceled the reader comments after stories. That means people who enjoyed reading and then leaving comments are going to move to other newspapers, in my case the Washington Times. So now I will read the Washington Times before or possibly after I read the Washington Post. No harm to me, but the Moonies will be getting some ad money out of this. I really hate that to happen. We have been with the Post since 1961.
Great reporting! 5/5
Easy access to the top stories from a reputable news source.
Great reporting, mediocre app 3/5
WaPo reporting is great but this app doesn't make it that much easier than reading in your phone's internet browser – mostly because the app lacks the long-press option for sharing and saving external links. Instead of long-pressing a link that reveals the sharing options, the WaPo app forces the link to open in-app.
Thank you WP 5/5
By Bill Pavelic
WP functions as our Guardians of Democracy and deserve a Profile in Courage award. Kudos for a job well done.
Capitol Hill resident 4/5
By Wade v.5.0
I just look at the pinups.
Works great. One minor annoyance.. 4/5
I love this app. Sometimes when I open an article, it opens in safari instead of inside the app. It's a pet peeve, but I think it would make the experience a lot smoother if this were fixed.
Fantastic source of real news 5/5
Great reporting, love the Washington Post
Best political reporting 5/5
Washpo gets the inside scoop on all the political reporting, and it's the least biased source out there.
STILL NO FIX!! 1/5
09/09/17: I updated the app to 3.10.0 and I'm STILL not receiving Notifications! Will this ever be fixed or are you going to continue to ignore it?
STILL not receiving Notifications from this app even after updating to 3.9.2. Will this be fixed??? Had to lower to 1 star. Will raise rating when this is fixed. What's going on?
Since I updated my iPhone 5c to iOS 10.3.3 I haven't been getting Notifications from this app. All the settings are correct, on my phone and on the app. Just wondering what's wrong?
Jeff Bezos needs to work harder on the Washington post app 1/5
About 90% of the time the app works as advertised and I am able to read the electronic paper in the same format as the print edition. However, about 10% of the time there is a glitch. This morning, for example, I could read yesterday's (Friday) edition, but was not able to download the Saturday edition. While I could read the news articles in some other format, it stymies me not to see the paper in the print edition format.
I do not know why these problems persist. I make sure to update my apps when it is indicated.
No Saturday Morning Print Edition! 1/5
No Saturday Morning, September 9, 2017 print edition.
Where is it??
Digital distress 2/5
The Post needs to get its digital delivery on par with other news outlets. You just can't count on it being there. Today's the perfect example - no Saturday edition....
Former Reservations & Sales Manager for Mexicana Airlines 5/5
By Mari Maya
The start of my mornings is with a cup of coffee and Washington Post news.
Love the content. The UI design is wanting.
I'm a news junky. WP is my first read of the day, and through the day check ins. The finest journalism. The goto for politics. Great stories. Love this paper. Phone app could use tweaking for best viewing of latest stories, though iPad version meets the bar. Leader on breaking news. WP news best informs my world.
Classic app now included 5/5
I was pleased that my digital subscription gives me access to the classic app version. Much easier to use. Washington Post was really my pick to support journalism and gives me the content that is greatest interest. They send me daily briefings via email every morning which is a great news summary over breakfast. Hoping that their pricing model continues to give those of us on fixed incomes reasonable rates going forward.
Where are the comments? 3/5
By LMG GemLover
The NYTimes' app was once like yours, but they eventually added the ability to see and make comments. I like seeing the comments of non-trolls and miss them, which is why I often open the WaPo in my browser. Not optimal.
Great journalism 5/5
Grateful for superb reporting by this fine newspaper.
good and going in the right direction 4/5
opening up all apps to all subscriber levels was a plus. Would like to be able to have only thumbnails or to turn off photo images on mobile devices- especially for slow connections.
Reading the post is a daily activity I enjoy. The post gives a balanced view of the news.
By Bucket o' travel
I used it daily, until the current version. Now it won't even launch. Deleted and reloaded. Still no dice. Sigh.
I stay connected 5/5
By Jean who sews a Seam
No matter what is happening in my life, I can stay connected to our present day chaos through the The Washington Post. More then ever I am grateful for their vigilant fact driven reporting.
Best in the news business 5/5
Class A paper!
Good interface but causes phone to heat up 3/5
I like the latest interface updates but my iPhone gets really hot each time I use the the app.
By dark reaction
Pretty good but this app lacks access to reader comments. I would love to have that feature added.
