Every day I tread the Post. I love the newspaper 5/5
I read the Post everyday on line. Love the news that is coming out of the paper
First rate, essential and exceptional.
0ld Dog...new trick 5/5
I am trying to move into the digital age. Slowly but surely, I am getting to like this new method of reading the Post.
Need to fix the log in 1/5
This is the second time in less than a week that I clicked on and article and got a pop up telling me to subscribe. In settings, I am clearly logged in with my account, but now I have to go through the extra step of putting in my email, password. Please fix this!
Great App 5/5
I’m a WAPO subscriber and love being able to access the paper online when I am unable to get the print edition. I like that the format is exactly the same as the print edition, and not a “mobile” version of the newspaper. The app works very well.
Great, but no “Local” 4/5
By kb from NoVa
I’ve been using this app for several years, and I love it. There is however, one improvement that I would like to see. The local and real estate editions are only for the DC metropolitan area. I would like to have the ability to select my home region - Northern Virginia. This should be a simple thing to add to the settings menu. If this is done, I will enthusiastically give it a five star rating. Please consider making this improvement!
Page blocked by banner ad for the paper I subscribe to 3/5
I was reading my first article, and saw that they have a banner ad at the bottom that blocks part of the page, and flashes intermittently, and says “Thank you for choosing the Washington Post.” Does this ever go away? Why would a reader want to see this?
Great App 5/5
Thank you for making a great app in this format, it’s a very good user-friendly app for reading the daily and Sunday newspaper.

Keep on Trucking WAPO 5/5
By Lucky Giebel
I do enjoy my paper on line but in the print format
Best of Both Worlds
Constant hassle. Cancel my subscription at the end of the month. 3/5
This is a constantly crashing app. Every day the same problems. Slow to load, unstable, crashes. Fed up.
Sept 23, 2015......FIX IT. Crashes when trying to load print edition.
Nov. 13, 2015 New update. Need adjustments. Lacks links and flipping to next page doesn't always work. Why not just leave a working release alone?
July 4, 2017 Broken again. Fix it and then leave it the hell alone.
June 2. Broken again. Fix it and then fire your IT staff.
Second page article links 4/5
By Dayton Buckeye
I love the print edition. However, it would improve the experience if there were active links to the second pages of articles.
Buggy disappointment on older iPad 4/5
I mainly use this version of WP to read the comics, and it's very slow and clunky. Disappointing.
Update 5/26/18: deleted app and reinstalled (have done this several times). Now seems to be working well.
Washington Post on Line 5/5
I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy reading the paper on my iPad!! It takes the Post to a new level.
Update consistently crashes 1/5
I updated on May 24. Now I t consistently crashes every time I try to use it. So now I have to give it the lowest possible rating.
Washington post 3/5
Good paper. SLOW as molasses to download
Great Version 5/5
By Smuttynose IOS
I can read this like I did the old print version! After doing it 40 Year’s that way it’s what I prefer. Thanks! The New York Times ought to learn from you.
If it matters to Oregonians 5/5
By No Nickname 102525
If it matters to Oregonians, it’s in the Washington Post.
Customer support 2/5
By Prester Dave
Lately, this app no longer downloads new content for me. Customer support initially suggests reinstalling the app, which didn’t work. The very next email reads “there is nothing further we can do”.
Real news 5/5
Not withstanding the critics who lambast the Post, I find this a very reliable source of #realnews. This is very important with propaganda news from Russian operatives and homegrown conspirators. Everyone makes occasional misstatements but the Post tries hard, I believe, for honest news.
Bulwark of Free Speech 5/5
Thank goodness for the Washington Post. Freedom of speech and the press is the single most important element of our country’s version of democracy, and the Post is at the center of the bulwark against those who would diminish or stymie our constitutional rights. With intelligent, courageous and interesting writing, the Post does the First Amendment proud.
Great Content, Lousy App 3/5
By Super Snarfer
Every time I try to open an article to read it, the app freezes. I then have to force close the app and restart it. This has been going on for quite some time and numerous updates. Enough already! Just fix it.
Excellent, excellent app 5/5
First-class app. Love being able to see the pages; high fidelity and functionality: great page and newspaper-section navigation, turning, story call-up and bookmarking.
I’m a writer and research nerd who would like two functional mods:
For citation and sharing purposes, include the full Web addresses rather than tiny URLs whose validity in future is uncertain.
Allow me to save full text of a story to my email program for indexing and later offline reference. Perhaps this function could be made available to paid subscribers?
Still, a smooth and excellent app.
Freezes up often 1/5
The new update is horrible. It freezes up on my iPad every time I open an article.
Easy to use 5/5
Straight forward and intuitive.
The best! 5/5
Sections download fast, pages easily flipped, articles expand for reading..can peruse faster than real print edition..:)
Thank God for The Washington Post! 5/5
By Dennis in St. Paul
While I enjoy the technical aspects of the internet delivered Post, it’s the great writing and color photography that I appreciate most. Coverage of the U.S. Government and international events are what I think are most valuable to me. An example is the story today about the people in South Korea who were floating water bottles filled with rice, medicine and information into North Korea. Thank you for the light you shine on the parts of our world that are difficult to see and understand.
Revolutionary technological innovation 5/5
By Paul Suhr
Replaces printed paper. Great!
Overall great app with some room for improvements 4/5
I like this app much better than the other two Washington Post apps. I think the app would be even better if the following improvements are made:
- Do not zoom out easily. When I read articles on my iPad, I usually zoom in to show only two columns in portrait mode. However, the app zooms out to show whole page when I tap somewhere or when I come back to the app after using other apps. I wish the app did not automatically zoom out.
- Do not jump to non-print edition of articles easily. I like this app because I like print edition, obviously, but app takes me to non-print edition when I tap text. I wish the link to the non-print edition was embedded only in, e.g., the title of the article.
- Do not a flip page easily. When I zoom in to show only two columns and swipe to show the next two columns, the app sometimes flip the page. I would like to flip a page only when I swipe near the right end of the page.
- Add capability to use dictionary. I sometimes want to use a dictionary while reading articles, so it would be helpful if I could select a word to use a dictionary, like we can in, e.g., the Safari app.

Awesome App. Love The Old School Feel To It
A few flaws but otherwise great 4/5
By The Runaway Robot
Some taps in Sports don’t take you to the article. Otherwise a brilliant innovation.
Support the free press. Keep the light shining. 5/5
By The Male Man
This subscription is perfect. It allows Me to read real news in depth. It provides links to support the articles I’m reading. I can do all of this from the comfort of my chair with a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or anywhere else I may happen to be with my iPad. Getting it delivered digitally saves the trees. Support your local press and keep the light shining.
Best newspaper on web 5/5
No only is the Post a terrific paper with a great group of journalists, the print edition is a great way to read the paper.
One of the two top papers in the country 5/5
I have been a reader of the Washington Post for over 40 years. This is unquestionably one of the most comprehensive newspapers in the country. I feel confident that, after reading the in-depth reporting and the news analyses each day, I have a very good understanding of what is really going on in the world.
Needs update for iOS 11.3 5/5
By Dissatisfied 310
Every time I try to open the app, it immediately closes. I tried restarting the iPad, but that doesn’t change anything.
UPDATE: app developers suggested I delete, then re-install, the app. That cured the issue, so I’m giving the app its 5 stars.
I love this app 5/5
This is one of the worlds best newspapers and I’m glad that they have a way of letting me read it in a format that is, in some ways, better than reading the actual paper.
Are there some glitches, yes. But on the whole, it’s an experience that I look forward to every day. They have fixed some of the more irritating problems and I now find it working well.
Very well done app 5/5
Great newspaper that does not produce fake news. Our country is in the midst of another “Watergate” crisis...only much worse. We need the Washington Post and other good newspapers to help get our country out of this mess.
Thanks Washington Post
Only negative 4/5
The e-edition is too sensitive to the touch and will flip pages when attempting to manipulate the size and view on a specific page.
I read the NYT, WSJ, and WaPo. This is by far the best iPhone app of the three. I love everything about it and the content is superb.
Crashes under iOS 11.3 1/5
Can’t open this app anymore.
Great App 4/5
By Nick R. Bond
Great app for reading the news on the iPad. I wish NYT had something like this as well. My only gripe about the app is the location of the advertisement at the bottom of the articles. I find it distracting and prefer the way NYT does it in their app. In the latter case it feels just like the ads you see in an actual newspaper. The adds in this app feel more like something from a cheap website.
Functional issue 3/5
The developers need to take the time an read entire issue as if it were a physical paper and not open the articles to read. I use the smaller iPad and read the articles as if I am reading the paper (I am 50 it’s habit) the seemingly random changes in zoom and page turns are incredibly frustrating.
Selecting an item in the print edition 4/5
The feature that allows one to select and focus on a single article in the print edition should be enable for editorial cartoons and the comics page.
Up to date news with ease 5/5
I grew up with the Washington Post , and this delivers everything you’ve come to expect with the print edition. Ability to manage font settings is a big plus, tho little to most I can read it during early hours. Auto delivered, it keeps you in the know of the news as it occurs.
Was great, No more. 1/5
This was a great app and I loved reading it on my iPad Pro. It no longer loads and refuses to let you go to back issues.
Best online news app around 5/5
By Don chiclesworth
I currently subscribe to WP paper version. In the past, I’ve subscribed to several magazines and newspapers online. The ease of access on this one is the best I’ve seen. It is easy to preview the print edition, then click or double click to read an article either mirroring the print or mirroring the online version. I’m glad a newspaper finally got this right!
I wish more papers did a digital print edition 5/5
The best way to remove the digital silos that have been following us from the 90’s. Gives the whole paper, as if printed, but with the convenience of digital. You can follow a story on the ‘paper’ or click into it for easier reading.
Great traveling tool to stay informed 4/5
Love this app which helps me enjoy Post on the road while my family keeps the print edition. Great paper, more important now than ever!!!
Best newspaper app 5/5
This app gives me the best of both worlds - I can turn the pages of the actual newspaper layout, And I can also triple tap on the article and read an enhanced digital version. WAPO also offers another app that updates the paper in real time. Well done!
Can’t sign in 1/5
It always takes too long to connect on my iPad and “times out” before I ever get anything.
