Good app, but.... 4/5
By Jack Straw 50
It’s well-designed for tablets such as my iPad, but I wish some of the features available on the desktop site were on the iPad too, such as being able to view and write comments to articles.
Not good 2/5
Not able to view it as a newspaper. No summary section that allows you to select the article you are most interested in. The default two article display and free flowing content is distracting and overwhelming. Please see the WSJ app for an example of strong app. Try again. Note this review has nothing to do with the quality of the journalism.
The best way to be updated 5/5
The Washington Post always has the pulse on what happens around the world. When traveling, the WP keeps me informed be it regional or international. Most of all one can trust the news provided.
Twitter notices of articles not available through app 1/5
Twitter notices of articles not available through the app, forcing you to renter info to access. Am canceling due to this poor marketing. I signed up to be able to read your articles not just some of them.
I have had to work too hard and too often to restore subscription access, 3/5
YoUr interface and digital editions access needs it be much more seem.ess, and user friendly
App Account Management Difficult 3/5
By Briana 2019
I use the app exclusively and it drives me nuts that I can’t make changes - email address, credit card, login info - via the App. Seems this should all be available via the Menu under the Cog icon (Settings) but it isn’t. Digital paper gets a 5 star though!!
Capitol News Integrity 5/5
My two favorite news sources are the Washington Post and the New York Times. I'm from Ft. Worth, TX, and we have two good newspapers down here, but the breadth, depth and national perspective are unmatched from that of the Post and the Times.
Post news review. 5/5
Well written, hot topic news. Appear to be thoroughly researched!
How can this be so poorly designed? 2/5
By Le Stevens
No search ability I can find on app. And no “Local” news option on menu.
The visual presentation of stories is more like a teaser reel for a cable news show than a newspaper.
The Washington Post: All the News Worth Reading 5/5
By Writer P
Great investigative reporting from a great American newspaper. Thank you Washington Post for holding the political class accountable and the public well informed.
Excellent reporting and well trusted.
Now Slanted 2/5
As an Independent, I have been reading The Washington Post for sometime now because it offered a nice mix of the news. Although the writing remains very good, the writer’s left-leaning politics are beginning to show in the articles. Sadly, this great publication is fast becoming just another Democratic leftist publication. There are many to choose from.
Love, love, love it! 5/5
By Joe Malzeit
Not only do I love the Washington Post’s reporting and coverage, they have perhaps the best app for reading the news of any newspaper or magazine I’ve tried or used. Wish the media would use them and this app as a template!
Great articles 5/5
The opinions, articles and information is top class. I really enjoy the newspaper.
Wash Post Classic app is much better then this 1/5
By Becky Wolsk
As a new digital subscriber I gave this app a try first but this is “curated content” and provides only partial access to the articles one is paying for— I say this because the only way to find the “buried” articles is to use the app’s mediocre search functionality, which doesn’t surface the most recent articles first. So when I input “Capital Weather Gang” which I am sure a lot of people search for often (and subscribe for), I not only was unable to find their main page, but I could tell that results weren’t sorting from newest to oldest, and there was no way for me to toggle that option. There is also no way for me to browse on topic tabs the way I can on other newspaper apps. I deleted this app immediately and downloaded Washington Post Classic, which works perfectly, but I wanted to come back and leave this review for fellow subscribers to the WP. The pretty images aren’t worth it, in my opinion, if you want fast access to the most recent news on topics you want to select rather then “wild cards” that a digital strategist thinks will interest you.
Not consistent 2/5
Frequently states that I cannot read anymore articles this month. When I attempt to log in, its doesn’t allow me to. I’m going to cancel my subscription as the Post obviously has not mastered the digital revolution.
Subscribe and resist 5/5
I know in the grand scheme of things supporting the Washington Post is a small thing to do. But it takes lots of small, good choices to overcome the stupidity being displayed by our politicians. Now, more than ever we need to support people who are committed to openness and shining a light on deeds that others want hidden.
User interface is great across all formats 5/5
By Stuart A.
On the Apple Watch, I really like the vertical scrolling full-screen title overlaid on photo (no wasted space) and the ability to tap to read an excerpt. Also enjoy this app on iPhone and Apple TV.
I’m a Washington Post subscriber and am grateful they continue to provide expert honest reporting.
Not A free App 2/5
If you’re going to have a free app, have a free app. This is BS. I understand that good journalism costs money, so just be up front about the cost. If you download this app all you can do is read some arbitrary headlines.
Good App 5/5
It’s a good App for understanding global news
Best news app, period. 5/5
By Polaris 5
First time reviewer of any product.
I will give up all other subscriptions before the WP.
WAPO delivers 5/5
By Commish Bosox
In depth. Accurate. A beacon in these stormy times.
Real journalism 5/5
While many newspapers are cutting back and dumbing down, the Washington Post is digging in; employing talented journalists who investigate and report important stories. IMHO this is the newspaper we need in these troubled times.
What can I say? 5/5
By Eazie's eyes
It is the Post. Always been my go-to.
Paywall Stops everything 2/5
The Washington Post is a great app and newspaper but nearly every article is behind a paywall. I want to look at news without constantly hitting a paywall. That is penny-pinching. Everything else is fine but that is the glaring flaw. Please fix!
aweful app from aweful sell outs. 1/5
this app is awful. jeff bezos is awful. the post, bezos, amazon, and the intelligence agencies should be utterly ashamed of themselves and what they’ve done.
My favorite app 5/5
I am totally hooked on this WP app! I’m really surprised at how much I look forward to reading it everyday. Great job. Couldn’t live without this app.
Feel much better informed! 5/5
The Post has now become an indispensable part of my daily life. I appreciate the determination of its reporters to get “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,” and the opinion pages offer a wide range of political viewpoints. Features provide amusement, entertainment, and learning. I resisted subscribing to any national newspaper for a very long time, and now I wish I had done it sooner.
It Goes Blank 2/5
While reading or swiping this app is continually goes down. It is frustrating. I can't get through an entire article without is closing on my. Please tell me what is wrong.
BEST UI 5/5
Enjoy using this this app not only because of the impeccable reporting but also the most enjoyable UI I’ve found in a news app.
Do you enjoy propaganda? 5/5
By Geoff Bruce -Ancient Mariner
If you do - forget the WP!
Although by my left wing leanings, the WP is moderately right wing, it has well researched factual news.
As a bastion of facts, it’s much needed in this day and age of hysteria.
The WP is essential for those who’s intellect is above moronic.
By Copious 2
Enjoy WP every morning especially editorials. Favorites are Jennifer Rubin and Eugene Robinson.
The best way to keep up with the events of the day. 5/5
I love this newspaper. Especially in these dark political times, reading the Post each day is a must. Keep up the outstanding work.
WP review 5/5
By WP Matthew
Continuously great journalism.
Canceled my subscription today. 2/5
By Two Down 62
After many years of being a Washington Post reader, the bias has reached an intolerable level. I will miss the in-depth analysis, but I am tired of having to look to other news sources for a balanced view of political events.
By Falcon Dave
Poor search functions (and good luck finding chats). Very difficult to duplicate the print newspaper experience.
As poor as the print edition! 1/5
As poor as the print edition!
More like a magazine than a newspaper 2/5
The organization of the menus is confusing and the double story presentation dilutes the seriousness of the content. The sidebar, with white text on a grey background is hard to read.
This doesn’t feel like a national newspaper, but more like a sensationalist rag.
I guess this is the future of news in the instagram world.
Well vetted source 5/5
After reading much over many years from many sources, and trying to do the fact checking and the smell test on those news services, only a handful have survived. The Washington Post, along with the Economist, Wall Street Journal (minus the editorials), Bloomberg are at the top of the surviving list. Good,
but very hard work. Please continue to help keep this country in but one piece till we get through this crisis of self absorbed and unrealized ignorance.
App drives me crazy 1/5
By Tracey AH
I see articles by the Washington post all the time that I want to read in the app. I don’t know if they don’t update the app as quickly as they release the articles online but it’s super annoying that I can’t find them in the app, and I am a subscriber!
Great reporting...real news!!! 5/5
By Canada cares
Articles are well written and very well reported. I am very interested in the American policial scene. I get a detailed account of the current situation; objective and from all sides.
This is real news!
Informative, easy to use, enjoyable 5/5
Wish a few more of the major media outlets would adopt this layout.
Easy to check in on the fly, readable, viewable on all my devices from phone to iPad Pro ( REALLY nice on the Pro)....
Signed up on a whim, this is turning into my go to for updates, especially on the Federal circus.
Very Good 5/5
Keeps you updated on all things Washington with unbiased reporting and well written articles.
Keeping tabs on Trump insanity 5/5
WP keeps me up to speed on our impetuous president. Not quite as fast with basic facts as electronic media, it is first with rational analysis. And that is what I need.
The Best news for all Americans 5/5
Great reporters write very accurate stories and back up their facts. Well written news and not afraid to publish the real facts to breaking and informative stories.
Great paper, poor app. 1/5
If you want to peruse the headlines, this app is for you. If you need to look up a story with the search function, just give up and go to the actual website. I follow DC United closely, and getting to their stories through the app is always a pain.
❤️❤️my WaPo! 5/5
Born into a family of WaPo subscribers since 1877, WaPo’s a rite of passage into the heartbeat of journalistic integrity. Over the years, like a good friend, WaPo’s had its ups and downs. But you don’t desert a good friend in times of need. The digital subscription is convenient but I still like to hold this gem of journalism in front of me and feel the pages as I turn them.
Constantly must login with amazon credentials 1/5
It always seems to be a problem to login to the Washington post. Why? I never have this problem elsewhere. I often (nearly always) receive a login error. Please fix this...
iPad app is rudimentary 2/5
Content is great. Well written, may have political bias like any other outlets. However the display of the articles are not visibly impressive. Now owned by the big tech firm, it should change its iPad app immediately.
