It beats the NYTs in my opinion, I read both.
POST Delivers the News 5/5
By Chips Stewart
The POST keeps us up to date. Reporters re relentless in pursuit to f the story!!
Sick and tired of sign-in requirement 1/5
Everyday I get this login BS...I pay for the friggin ‘right’ to view your articles, I ain’t trying to steal anything from you, but Hugh Hewitt should be exclusively FOX! Greed isn’t Good!
Late “Paper” 2/5
I never thought I would see this again in a digital world, yet this morning, 6/24/19, all of the stories are 1-3 days old.
App is good but can’t see comments on articles 4/5
I like the app but don’t understand why you can’t find the readers comments or a place to leave a comment, as you can do through a browser.
Read to know the FACTS! 5/5
This is the scariest time for our democracy and the WP helps to make sense of what our government is doing and why. If I didn’t have the WP, I’d be totally confused and I feel it’s my duty as a citizen to support and read the WP; the Post brings sanity into my life!
Exclusive new tools to keep up with the news? 1/5
Since the update today the app does not open/simply crashes every time I attempt to open it. Is that one of the exclusive new tools? Just wondering....
Terrible app. No excuse 2/5
Terrible app. No excuse. Just copy the Guardian and NY times app. Will cancel subscription.
My go-to 5/5
I always check the Post for the truth.
My contact with reality 5/5
I am so beyond grateful for the Post and to be able to read it online. I have children in D.C. so I doubly like it and don’t have to miss a thing when I leave their house to return home.
App versus paper 5/5
By frustrated by this process
I like the paper and the screen ... they augment one another
An unknown error has occurred 1/5
How do you piss off your subscribers? Tell them They have read all the “free“ articles they can read when they are paying subscribers. Oh and also make them hunt for a unique name for 10 minutes before they can post any kind of complaint.
I can’t figure it out so 5/5
I am doing it here. I was interviewed by a post reporter about softball at west Potomac park. She interviewed me between innings so I had about 3 minutes to chat. So I talked about the existing league, that I have played on since 2006. Had she stuck around until after the game, she could have heard the of the navy fast pitch league, which dominated that now allow slow pitch softball. I recommended she call me before she publishes her story. She has my number.
Biased reporting 1/5
By Toler Rance
Sad that the Washington Post does not report straight news but rather advocates and colludes to produce propaganda for the Democratic Party. Where journalism goes to die🤷🏿♂️
Embarrassing typography 1/5
Any time a quotation mark starts a line, even mid paragraph, it appears outside the margins. major newspaper's app should not have such typography problems.
Big has existed for years. Tech support gives the response “out other apps do that” as if that makes it right.
Come on. You are a major newspaper. Typography basics should not be an issue.
The best 5/5
The Post is the very best newspaper I have ever read. I really like quality and you will find nothing but in the pages of the nation’s finest paper.
Go To start of day 5/5
Well curated and topical pieces. Easy to read format and great national coverage and opinions.
Trump doesn't want you to read the news! 5/5
By Pakistani Tony Montana
The Washing Post represents everything good that Journalism can be. Support freedom of speech, support WaPo.
These are the times... 5/5
I don’t have much time to read the papers but I subscribe to three of them...The Post, The Times, and The KC Star. It’s more important now than before to help pay for the efforts of those who provide us with the reality of truth. A better day is surely coming and it will be ushered in by the people whose business it is to keep shoveling aside the bull to factually pave our way to that better tomorrow. Thank you WAPO! Respectfully...
Truthful Reporting 5/5
By Nat Butler
At this time in our Country’s history, we need hard observation of difficult and uncomfortable situations. I trust the Washington Post staff to have the safe space to give their honest professional opinions around a conference room table in advance of news reported. I trust the Washington Post to allow editorials on divergent views. I trust the Washington Post to dig deep on the reporting to find all the minute information available. I trust the Washington Post to vet authentic statements from false statements and doing the hard work behind the reporting.
I trust the Washington Post. Period.
‘World’ tab back on- thank you! 5/5
Thank you for noticing that after one of the updates the World tab disappeared. Even bigger thank you for finding it and putting it back on.
Cannot even find my subscription 2/5
Apple shows a payment was made but the app never acknowledges my payment
Unavoidable sports news 3/5
I’m an adult. I pay for WaPo specifically to support journalists who might possible save this stumbling democracy. In return, you guys think I’m interested in sportsball? Please at least let me turn of the celebrity gossip and sports announcements.
An Informed Reader 5/5
I look forward to WAPOs news, I count on their excellent investigative reports and in depth news. We need to support independent news (not government) and I choose WAPO as my source
There are couple of features I would love to see 3/5
I would like to see an easier way to save a story for later without having to open up the story from the main page. I would love if there was a way to filter stories within the search page like you can do from the traditional website on a computer. It would also be nice to filter stories from within the saved stories section. I very much do not like that when I may be scrolling through my saved stories page and decide to read a article and unsave it, I would have to start from the very top of the saved stories page again instead of where I stopped.
Why can’t you report the news in a balanced fact based way 2/5
Why are you so lopsided? Can’t you provide an objective view and just the facts vs liberal bs? Long time Washingtonian who only checks the post headlines to see what liberal BS you are promoting! I would like to subscribe again but will not until you present a balanced view! I suspect you might given the liberal presidential candidates who are out for blood from Amazon!
It keeps me informed 5/5
By Robert L Margolis
The Washington Post is an excellent source of the news. A good purchase! Thanks.
Not as good as a web browser 2/5
The WaPo app for iPhones is ok but it doesn’t allow users to read viewer comments. I have no problems viewing comments on my windows laptop using web browsers, and just confirmed that if I log into the digital WaPo with my iPhone web browsers I can see the comments. WaPo tech support confirms that the app can’t offer viewing reader comments. I’ll delete the app and just use FireFox.
Articles and mobile pop-ups 5/5
Love the articles as well as mobile pop-ups that keep me informed of the hottest topics of the day.
Ads and no comments 1/5
Renewing my 1-star review. Somehow it mysteriously got changed to 5 stars so I am changing it back to 1 star.
I am a Washington Post subscriber even though I don’t live in the D.C. area anymore. I use this app at least a dozen times a day.
The newspaper itself is top notch, the best investigative journalism anywhere. I want to support that, so I subscribe every year. Three glaring failures keep my review of the app at one star:
1) Even though I am a subscriber, I get interrupted mid-article by advertisements. I do not want to be distracted by advertisements when I am a paying subscriber. It shouldn’t be hard to give the option to turn those off for subscribers.
2) The comment sections of the articles aren’t included in the app. I have to go online to the website to read and post comments. This app should have the comment section.
3) I have notifications for Sports turned off, but the app keeps sending me sports-related alerts. I want to be interrupted for Politics and Breaking News, not Sports. If WaPo considers sports events to be “Breaking News” 🙄 it should withhold those alerts from people who have Sports alerts explicitly turned off. Annoying.
No More Hewitt 3/5
Please upgrade your app to allow for deleting Hugh Hewittless from my newsfeed.
Always tells us what we need to know. 5/5
Quality all around
Burning phone 2/5
I use this app on a fully updated, battery-replaced iPhone 6. Once again, as for the past several years, reading an article too deeply triggers something in my phone that sends my battery into overdrive. My battery power just went from 100% to 53% in a matter of minutes, while my phone got almost too hot to hold. This is a problem the App developers acknowledged, when I gave them feedback, directly. That was over a year ago, and it’s still not fixed. Very. Frustrating.
Erie, PA 5/5
Love the Washington Post! Great journalism.
Real news 5/5
Solidly, thoroughly researched , news you can count on, from real, professional Journalists. I know I can count on The Washington Post to bring the truth to light.
The Post is Great the App Stinks 2/5
The App categories don’t correspond with the paper/website sections and the search function never returns valid results. I’ll often try to find a specific article with the headline and author or subject and will get nowhere with the search or hunting through sections. It seems current political headlines is all they care about. Everything else is burried.
Solid app. Keep up the great work. Aces. Thx for the option to disable sports notifications.
If democracy dies in darkness, WAPO is a beacon.
Trump speaks at a dinner hosted by the Queen. 5/5
Two important individuals were not invited—what do they have in common? Arabic names. Trump always has to be handled.
The Washington Post has many good articles but also is obviously highly biased in favor of liberals and the Democrats and hostile to conservative views and the Republicans, especially President Trump.
Washington Post 5/5
By PB Byrd
Extremely interesting. I read it on the net each day.
Excellent coverage and first rate reporting 5/5
I live in New York City and I am a subscriber to both the New York Times and the Washington Post. I would find my knowledge of what is happening much diminished were it not for the Post.
The photography / editing is exceptional 4 stars
Good news reader, doesn’t support Voraciously as well as it could 4/5
By NFL Not My Friend
I use this app a lot, as a bit of a news junkie and welcome the dark mode option for reading (white print, dark background) particularly in low light scenarios.
I’d love it if there was better support for the recipes from Voraciously or alternatively a complimentary app as the NYTimes has implemented.
Thank god for WAPO 5/5
Where would we be, what would we do if not for the intrepid journalism found every day in this gloried paper.
App needs comment section. 4/5
Font size 5/5
I'm paying for my account but am unable to sign in. Your sign in process is not working correctly.
Great journalism 5/5
Love the writers and your articles. Much livelier than Times.
Great source for investigative reporting 5/5
By J in The Woodlands
I read at least one article daily, and in general read WP more than other sources. The app makes it really easy to keep up to date.
