The Washington Post Classic app reviews

  • Premium Journalism 👌🏽 5/5

    By Ariel L. W.
    I was born in DC and grew up in Silver Spring, MD. I read the Washington Post every day growing up. Now that I live in California (and now that the bedrock of American democracy has started to crumble) I find great solace in the expert journalism of those employed by the Washington Post. Thank you for your public service and for your endless faith in delivering truth. It couldn’t be more important.
  • My go to news source 5/5

    By Nanc Y
    I started consistently reading the Washington Post about 18 months ago. Now it is my go to news source. The stories are accurate, concise, always newsworthy. The website is very easy to navigate. Subscribe. You will not be sorry.
  • Always interrupts iTunes music 1/5

    By kopyor
    I’ll give this app 5 stars if I could turn off whatever feature keeps cutting off the music I’m listening to while I’m reading articles. Seems related to ads. No obvious setting to turn it off. As a paid subscriber this is offensive. Also, where are the comments?????
  • Opinion 4/5

    By gaffpack
    More objective news please, your opinion shows when reporting national news. The story, behind the story...rarely gets told anywhere in the paper, leads to uninformed opinions. Example is the folks that think college for all doesn’t come with a cost. Soak the rich sounds good until you run the numbers and realize that if you are in, or aspire to be, in the middle class...they are coming for YOU. When do you educate as Democracy dies in darkness...right?
  • Journalism is alive and well! 5/5

    By hkearns1
    Honset, through, and in-depth journalism is the foundation of a working democracy. This paper is working everyday for our information and freedom.
  • Journalism at its best 5/5

    By CocoaMojo
    As a background - We both have prestigious graduate degrees and subscribe to four newspapers. My husband’s an award-winning columnist (not with the “”Washington Post,”) and I work as an executive at a leading-edge technology company. The “Post” provides a very balanced voice and extraordinary depth in its stories. Its articles inform and report in the most thought-provoking manner. Its columns and Op-Ed pieces illuminate and will hopefully influence those into action to positively change what we have for the better .... to end the corruption, turn back global warming, protect the environment, embrace diversity and DACA / women’s/ LGBQT and minority rights, etc. etc.
  • Ads 4/5

    By Dawn Episcopo
    Love the content GET RID OF THE FLASHING DISTRACTING ADS that pop up the entire time I read. I am paying to read - figure it out.
  • crashing 2/5

    By eaflaf
    crashes numerous times while reading please address
  • Painful 1/5

    By Damngoog46&jas
    I have a subscription to Washington post and have repeatedly tried to log in without success. I’ve been to the home page on my Mac but still can’t login on my iPhone. Really close to dropping my subscription. One more try and I am gone.
  • Wonderful Newspaper for the Digital Era 5/5

    By Yoshi's Fan
    I enjoy the Washington Post’s in-depth well written news stories each day. For me, these stories represent the first draft of history, especially in the US and global dimensions. I also treasure the insightful opinion writers. Finally ease of digital use is outstanding for the iPhone, iPad and computer user.
  • Reputable news at my fingertips 5/5

    By Maria P-D
    It has been a long time since I had a subscription to a print newspaper. I finally decided that I needed to stay informed, as well as support quality journalism, the beacon of democracy. I bought a digital subscription to the WP and am delighted to have breaking news on my iPhone wherever I happen to be. I can also read the news on my laptop or on my Kindle. I don’t have to make time to sit in front of a newspaper, I can read whenever I have a few minutes. I am delighted with the writing and the quality of reporting. I am now better informed and not so susceptible to what I see on FB. All I can say to The WP is keep up the good work.
  • Feel Right There! 5/5

    By Von in Midwest
    I may be in the Midwest, but with thorough, competent, journalistic coverage, I stay right in the middle of the world.
  • Extraordinary 5/5

    By twr505
    Love the insight and perspectives. Also source to glean news and implications of breaking reports
  • Feedback option 5/5

    By Mdhippie
    It would be nice to provide feedback directly to Post writers. Much of the content is though provoking and getting subscribers views might be enlightening.
  • App has become unstable, freezing stories, not allowing changes of pages etc. Please fix. 2/5

    By horn harbor
    See notes above, the app for Ipad has become practically useless. Have deleted and reinstalled, rebooted, no difference. Very disappointed.
  • So-so user experience 3/5

    By Marknitz
    Content is fine. However, it’s really annoying that the app doesn’t clearly and visually identify articles that I’ve already read. If it does try to do this already, then try again because it’s not visually clear. Put the done button back to the top. It’s not any easier to reach in lower left. I find it less easier to reach. Amazingly, the inability to visually flag articles as read is still an issue and horrificly negative user experience. Still waiting for the app to track for me what I’ve read. This can’t be that hard.
  • Glitchy 2/5

    By bradley.bleck
    Keeps freezing but on my iPad mini.
  • Love the paper 5/5

    By mojo 87
    Great news. No fake news here trump
  • Essentially a fine experience in the troubled times 5/5

    By Geewhizicist
    I consider WAPO indispensable to our democracy and greatly appreciate both the paper’s content as well as the app that allows me to receive breaking news updates throughout the day. The only improvement I would urge is to include point/counterpoint columns.
  • One of the best newspaper app experiences 5/5

    By Becky Wolsk
    Thank you for keeping this classic version of the WP app available, so digital subscribers and print subscribers who enjoy reading the paper on their devices can quickly access what they want to read. This interface is intuitive and user-friendly.
  • Excellent writing and insight! 5/5

    By NWA Hogfan
    I started subscribing about a month ago and thoroughly enjoy reading the Post. I read it everyday, regardless of where I am. The articles deal with the most current issues and are always well written with proper research. I look at the Post app several times daily, because the app updates with current events. I’m very satisfied with my subscription and the cost is also reasonable, particularly for the product.
  • Yea for Democracy! 5/5

    By supporterofthetruth
    Great investigative journalism is saving this country...thank you, Washington Post!!!
  • One of the few papers I support with a subscription 5/5

    By WP Fab
    The have good solid factual reporting, easy to read. Well worth the subscription.
  • App freezes 2/5

    By anon5591
    App freezes on iPad mini 3. Closed all background apps, turned off unnecessary services, confirmed more than 10GB free space, and rebooted device. Still freezes while reading articles.
  • Imagine 5/5

    By mrs. baby
    My last moments on earth I would love to hear Lennon’s IMAGINE. No hunger, no greed, no selfishness and no Trump. It is bittersweet to realize this world could be all that if we wanted it enough. No poisoned ocean, no burning Middle East. No drowning islands in the South Seas. No gangs, only beloved children with a good life in front of them. No drugs because anxiety and fear would be absent. All it would take is the will of the people. We would feed the hungry, clothe the naked and house the homeless. We could make the Beatitudes come true and I am not religious. We could create heaven right here, instead of 17 armed conflicts of our involvement. My last moments will be hoping for this. I’ll say thank you to John Lennon when I see him.
  • Need to Imrove interoperability 1/5

    By ICaribe
    When you find an article via email, Twitter, Facebook, or the web and click the link to a WaPo article, it does not open in the app; it opens on the web. Instead subscribers have to copy the article name and search for it in the app to read the content. The lack of a simple option to continue reading content on the app is a deterrent for reading WaPo articles and becoming a subscriber.
  • App freezes often 3/5

    By kk14c
    The app will freeze often and requires closing and restarting.
  • A national service 5/5

    By Sale cat
    Accurate, fair, reporting and thoughtful content are democracies lifeblood
  • Old News 5/5

    By mjguffey
    It would be nice if my digital subscription to the Post would deliver a fresh copy once a day. Instead, the “latest news” lags by a day or more. Today, January 11, I’m still reading Friday’s headlines. Up your game, Post.
  • Vern Lazaroff 5/5

    By vernlaaroff
    Support legitimate news. Support important investigative reporting. The Post and the Times are critical to fight Trump’s fascist attack on the free press.
  • Excellent reporting 5/5

    By Lolbggjlbdfljgd
    I truly appreciate reading the WP articles. Exquisite reporting with great insight. Thank you. Annw
  • V Roberts 5/5

    By Pratt grad
    Relevant, well-written and essential if you want to know what’s going on in the DMV, US and world.
  • Thank you 5/5

    By JATBC
    In 1972 I graduated from College and lived through the saga which was "Watergate", all without the Internet. Imagine! I remember watched Butterfield testify before Congress when he was asked if there was taping in the Oval Office. The pace today is breathtaking but keep up the excellent work. No one else can solve this deception. Thank goodness for the Press! Bravo!
  • Washingtonian living in NC now 5/5

    By HTTR Redskins
    Lived in NoVa and worked in DC for many years. Moved to NC a year ago. My go-to news outlet is still The Washington Post.
  • One of the best... 5/5

    By Gwaiijai
    ... in the country.
  • Worth every penny! 5/5

    By cosemine
    I must read the WP for information which is credible and opinion pieces which are thoughtful and though proving. Thank you!
  • Best News Source 5/5

    By MrBillMann
    Straight forward reporting of relevant news!
  • Great news 5/5

    By marlin111
    Always leading in the reporting with quick stories. Right amount of breaking news reports. Highly accurate, Great editorial section with authors names consistently place in a spot for quick reference
  • Paying to share info? 4/5

    By LessThan14Char
    It’s a good app. I especially like the black screen option. But I hate that it throws up a pay wall for certain stories. If I sign in to read then WP can share my info? No thank you.
  • Great paper 5/5

    By Lantoga
    Thorough reporting, well written, excellent analysis.
  • App fine, except every video has an add 2/5

    By GomezTerez
    App works fine for the most part. I’m incredibly disappointed and dissatisfied that I have to pay for a digital subscription just to watch an add before every single video I watch. I might as well cancel my subscription and just visit wapo with a private browsing tab which would yield a similar experience.
  • Too bias 2/5

    By Chase Bethesda
    Too much bias, just give us the facts and let us make up our own minds.
  • The best newspaper in the World! 5/5

    By nsaguy
    Your efforts and precision in ferreting out the truth are unmatched! J. Wood
  • My GoTo News 5/5

    By JenLaw72
    I feel it’s trustworthy reporting. The website is easy to navigate which is very pleasing because most are horrible, tbh.
  • Love the Washington Post 5/5

    By xyzzy-42
    I like the laser focus on Washington politics. It would be nice if the reporters could write their own headlines, wouldn’t it?
  • Great app, but... 3/5

    By Scottus Mullatus
    The “Saved” articles doesn’t work. Articles won’t load. I’ll change this to 5 stars if you fix this. (PS — The New York Times save function works perfectly...)
  • WaPo is Great News 5/5

    By STL013
    I get really timely useful news from the Washington Post. I appreciate the effort they make to separate opinion from news and both are thoughtful and informative. I also appreciate the many reporters they have out covering the world. I read four newspapers daily. Out here in the Midwest by reading the digital WaPo I often get news items a day or two earlier than they are reprinted in our local paper.
  • Thank you 5/5

    By TheShipReport
    I just watched the film, “The Post” and it reminded me again how important your work is. I’m a proud subscriber now to both the Post and the Times. Thank you for your work to protect our democracy.
  • “News” 1/5

    By Hillary '20
    You guys don’t really cover news. You should consider changing your name to “the Washington left-wing post”
