Social media Sharing 4/5
I love WAPO I’d never. Never been much of a newspaper reader but when my partner got a digital subscription I started paying more attention to the paper.
I’m a total fan!
Only complaint right now is that I can no longer share directly from the app to Facebook. I can still accomplish it by opening it up in a session of Safari and then sharing manually from there.
Fixed the zooming pics, but still a tunneled navigation 1/5
Still terrible. Finally the zooming, nausea inducing pics are gone, but navigation is still one story at a time.
There is a categories menu, but that's it. No simple headlines to scan. I have to scroll through huge images for all the stories? I've looked and looked to see if there's a setting to turn off this scroll feature. I'm astounded that there is not a more conventional formatting option. This app is just terrible.
I've looked at the WP Classic app and it's better. This whole having 3 different apps thing is just dumb. Way overthinking this, folks.
I am the founder of an online business and am in no way unaccustomed to apps and am not a Luddite. This app is terrible.
WaPo is a must read. 5/5
You cannot live life effectively without a subscription to the Washington Post.
Fantastic source, great journalism! 5/5
Nothing else to add.
Good app 5/5
By 35-year Post fan
Gives access to Post. All I need. 😎
Such a beautiful news app 5/5
The.best, most informative paper now, pleasant blended video and visual experiences!
Easy to use app 5/5
This is a much better way to read the WP than clicking through from the email, loads cleanly & well.
Love the paper, hate the app 1/5
I prefer the web page view, which looks like a newspaper and makes it easy to see all the headlines and determine what I want to read. And it's slow.
Great journalism 5/5
I really appreciate the journalism of WAPO so I'm already happy with the content. The app seems decent enough. So thumbs up
Great paper 5/5
Undoubtedly one of the best in the country.
Great newspaper, great app 4/5
Every once in awhile I get a freeze, hence four stars instead of five. That quibble aside, I love the app because the newspaper's content is as visually stimulating as intellectually satisfying. Wish everyone could be using it.
What a news app should be. Bezos buying them has paid off. Now if this so called liberal newspaper wasn't the employer of mostly conservative editors and op-ed writers.
Great journalism 5/5
Glad I got this app - informative and well written stories
Great News App 5/5
I had to find a new source for news when Gannett bought my local paper and turned it into USA Today light. I love the in-depth reporting of the Post. First Class!
Why can't this app be fixed? 1/5
By Dave McA
For a very long time this app has exhibited strange behavior that makes it hard to read articles. The quirks are mailing bugs in scrolling. Shouldn't they just start over and replace the app with one completely redesigned for scratch?
The washington post 5/5
By library 2468
I really like this paper.
Worked before update 1/5
Worked fine before update, but now it won't login and the screen just stays stagnate after I put my login information (it lost the automatic login information with the update).
Easy to use 5/5
I really like the way they have the scrolling to move between the articles
Can't log in 1/5
Freezes or stalls if I try to log in. I have a paid subscription through my Amazon account. Currently that money is 100% going down the drain. Please fix this issue. Maybe need to use an app platform that works.
Horrible. The scrolling thing is awful. Makes me dizzy. I want news not gee-whiz fancy pants interface. Where's the Metro section? I live in NJ but still follow my hometown DC area local news having lived in both MD and VA. I follow Caps only in sports. How do I get to that coverage? This app stinks, not worth the time. Delete.
Great content, occasional freezing problems, comics weirdness 4/5
By Blackbird's Wings
Love the content and the format is wonderful and easy to read. Based on that, this would be a five star app.
However, articles will occasionally freeze and refuse to scroll down. The problem gets worse over time, and eventually the app will freeze trying to switch between articles. Fortunately, it is solvable by deleting the app and re-downloading, which I have to do about once a week.
Minor gripe, but the comics which appear in the app vary from day to day - some days there are a lot, and some days only a few. It's particularly irritating with serial comics like Mark Trail, since it's hard to follow a storyline.
Scrolling issue 3/5
The stories scroll normally. The main page does not. It's extremely annoying, so I generally use other sites like NYT.
Time to get over Antifa 2/5
Really? I'm thinking of dropping my subscription because of the bum-of-the-week op ed piling on ANTIFA, while the world burns. Cheaper than the Times, but not as good, better than the Globe, but less local to me.
Won't let me link my email! 1/5
My email account won't link to the app. Every time I try, it says I already have a linked email but it wouldn't show me which email is already linked. Because I purchased my subscription through the app, I can no longer read online.
Poor app 1/5
This app is a real disappointment, I don't know where the positive reviews come from. I'm using it on a newer IPad. It is always slow to sync new regardless of the network connectivity I'm using, like it can take several minutes to download the current stories (this in contrast to the NYT app which syncs these in the background I think). Worst of all, it only lets you see a few of it's stories, far from all of the stories found in its online addition accessed via a web browser. What stories it does provide access to are not always the most recent ones, so this isn't a good app for keeping up with hour to hour news.
Crashes constantly 2/5
Crashes wile trying to scroll through stories. This means you need to start over each time. Irritating. Jeff Bezos should be able to do better.
Crashes & freezes 2/5
By Green Laughter
Love the content but it freezes & crashes frequently. I hope hope hope for an update to address these issues.
Won't work on VPN... 1/5
I am a subscriber, but the app doesn't work when I'm on VPN. I was told some time ago that they were aware of the issue and working on it, but it hasn't yet been fixed. It won't update at all now, but initially it just stopped downloading pictures. In this app that's a problem, because the article headlines are in the pictures. If I turn off my VPN, everything works.
Great app for great news coverage 5/5
WP app is easy to use, and it provides a great platform for solid news coverage. A winning combination.
Great App 5/5
App works well, but I subscribe because of the quality of the reporting.
Loses content with weak wifi 1/5
Loaded all content on strong wifi. Couple hours later, was on very weak wifi connection. All content cleared for some odd reason, maybe newer edition available but very frustrating to lose what I had already loaded. iPad Pro with very latest iOS.
What the world needs now....the unrestricted reporting 5/5
Appreciate all of your efforts so much, daily must read!!
Great News Washington Post! 5/5
Great source for Real News!
Impossible to cancel 1/5
By the mammalpants!
Infuriating cancellation process that leads to dead end after dead end.
Great Value as part of Prime 5/5
By Texas solo
Added a subscription to the Post and I am really enjoying their coverage of the news. Great app!!
Nice presentation but wish there were more navigation options 3/5
The content is first class,however the scroll only format feels limiting and not being able to see a selection of headlines is a bit annoying
Love this app 5/5
Love the political, national & international news and stories from a trusted source. Easy to access and use at my own convenience. Lots to read.
Best news organization 5/5
I love everything about WaPo. Keep it up!
Hangs up often.... 1/5
Like the UI in theory, except seems to frequently hang and become unresponsive for periods of time on my iPad. Almost to point of not being useable.
Great app for quick news overview 5/5
So far, this app works great. It's easy to navigate.
This app doesn't scroll smoothly. It stutters along. Very annoying.
Trump Apologists 1/5
Cancelling my subscription today. If I want to read about how great Trump is I will watch Fox News.
Love the access to the Post's fine reporting and insightful commentary. Also love the app's ability to scroll through the headlines and features to obtain a quick overview; very well done.
Great app . Constantly breaking news .
Stay informed!! 5/5
I love this app! I read it everyday and am able to stay informed about what is happening in my country and the world. I am incredibly thankful that the great tradition of investigative journalism continues despite repeated attempts to silence it. As a democracy, we need to know what is happening with our government, at the local, state, and federal levels, and I count on the Post to deliver unbiased, factual information that aids in my own decisions when I need to take action (vote, activism, contact my representatives, etc.). The app also contains other great articles pertaining to entertainment, book reviews, technology, editorials, food...you name it, they cover it. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Very clear and easy to use. 5/5
I like the format and ease of use.
By Reader Needer
I've always read NYT and occasional WaPo article online. Decided to support a second paper. Thought it might seem redundant, but I'd try it out anyway since I admire the mission. The WaPo and NYT do not parrot each other. These papers do a great job. In tandem, what a force of information and insight! Didn't think anything could top the op-ed page in the Times. On any given day, the Post inspires just as much critical thinking.
I use the speech feature on my phone to have the articles read to me while I work. Since a recent update, that option on context menu is replaced with "Share". This is my only news app that does this. The app is useless without the Speech option.
