My National Home Town Newspaper 5/5
While the Dallas Morning News is my local newspaper for North Texas, I read the Washington post cover to cover first. I also subscribe to the New York Times, primarily for additional Opinion perspectives.
While this “information and perspective” triple decker sandwich
Is both informative and enlightening, the ingredient that provides the definition is the Washington Post.
Great design BUT..... 3/5
Great design for those of us who love the print edition BUT takes forever to load/populate so extremely frustrating to use ... wasted opportunity with a strong idea foiled by weak execution.
Allows you to see the print version on your tablet 5/5
Call me old-fashioned, but I really enjoy seeing the print version of a newspaper. The Washington Post app allows you to see the print version and scroll through the pages on your tablet or phone. There are so many articles that I would not read if I were just scrolling through an electronic app. I know this for a fact. I read many more tidbits of interesting information when I am looking at the print version. Get this app. Subscribe to the Washington Post electronic version.
This app is so awesome now I don’t have to buy the newspapers
Love this paper! 5/5
We get the paper at home but i usually use the app to get the e-replica version. Easy to download when traveling.
One way st But Wait til dark
Terrible new delivery service 1/5
By chessie gurl
Jeff, all I want is my paper and a cup of coffee in the morning. You fired my reliable, wonderful carrier.
New service is neither. I’ve complained 5 days in row now, haven’t heard back from supervisor or had any improvement. Paper comes late, sometimes 3:30 pm.
Laura whitaker, VERY long time customer
Sooo far left. 1/5
A good reason to dump Amazon and Whole Foods from my life.
Print version just is what I find easiest to use. 5/5
By Chris of Beltsville
I’m in my 70’s. I’m used to a paper. The regular electronic version at times is confusing. This “print version” is easy for me to use is just what I need. Thanks.
Poor subscriber support 2/5
By Natural learning
Great user interface, using classic newspaper layout. But I keep getting logged out and the app times out when attempting—
repeatedly—to log in. I’ve missed multiple days of my subscription due to this lousy app service. This shouldn’t be happening in these days of app development with a national brand like the Washington Post.
Excellent newspaper 5/5
Always enjoy reading the Post. Read it faithfully every morning and visit the website periodically throughout the day for updates and breaking news. Also receive instant text messages throughout the day. Excellent, accurate reporting in an honest and forthright way. Absolutely not fake news. LOL
Makes traveling work 5/5
By Happily ADD
Digital version almost as good as paper. I like keeping up with my fav paper out of town!
The best coverage of national politics 5/5
I depend on the Post, the indispensable source.
Poor navigation 3/5
I use PressReader for the Post. Both this and PressReader have a similar reading experience however, PressReader moves you back and forth between the article origin and end then back again, as well as text mode, much easier than does this app. I’ll be sticking with PressReader.
Pretty well thought out app 4/5
Works well, and easy to read specific article by tapping on initial portion. I like it because it’s laid out like the actual newspaper. I would prefer the real print newspaper if I was living in that part of the country, would probably award five stars if I had a bigger iPad!
Bad sign in function 1/5
Nickname is silly
Update: This is still a fantastic iPhone app. I love the print edition replication. It’s also great on the iPad.
April 2018: 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.
Gets fixed quick 4/5
Bugs get repaired within a week of discovery. Bravo. I wish reading offline worked better for images.
Excellent Journalism 5/5
And very savvy digital presence. Love having it at my fingertips throughout the day.
Use to be good 1/5
I use this app when I don't have service or to catch articles that are not in the digital version. With the latest update the print version does not work with no or limited service because it is always checking your subscription. Seriously flawed. Even with good cell or wifi service I have to enter my credentials almost every day.
WaPo mobile 5/5
By twins 4 Nana
Love having the paper at my fingertips. Scrolling the articles is made easy by their function of being able to convert it from newspaper size to a scrolling article. Only negative is the difficulty is getting the crossword puzzle to be usable often, it freezes in the conversion mode and often freezes when doing it on line. I prefer to not print it out everyday, defeats the purpose of being digital. Also it would be nice if sudoku and scrabble were able to be done on line and they can even be printed at this time.
App Is Horrible! 1/5
Why do I have to login every time I open the app and try to read an article?
They said it was fixed, but now it just spins after I try to login.
Are you trying to get me to switch papers, as it’s working?
Can’t access my subscription-thus, a very bad app 1/5
By MDriver's iPad
Former Subscriber 1/5
I’m a subscriber charged automatically every month. Now app keeps telling me I don’t have a subscription and need to sign up. Finally gave up and cancelled subscription today.
Crummy update to app 1/5
By DC Area Resident
Ditto what others have said about not being able to stay on the page and read the print version. Great app before. Whatever you did in the update didn’t work...maybe it’s the Russians...
Print Edition App unstable! 1/5
On page 4 even though I'm sign in keeps showing subscription page and won't show me the page. App needs major update!
Love it!!! 4/5
By BIG DADDY'S
It can make you day somewhat better!!!!!
Bring back text adjustment to the print edition 5/5
The font is too small to enjoy the paper. Will you permit user to adjust the print size please?
Unable to use after update 1/5
Always worked before although I used to have to login regularly. Now I am logged in but can’t read the paper- it just tells me I need to subscribe even though I already paid.
App updated yesterday for “easier logon”. Today, it won’t let me access the online paper. Reached out twice to WaPo for help ... still waiting.
Latest update prevents logon 1/5
By The Brian Clark
The latest update asks you to logon. It says it accepts the logon but then asks again. So now I can’t read the paper 🤯
Perfect combination of print and tech 5/5
No need to change this ever. Maybe the NYT will someday be capable, but no sign of that so far.
Good but... 4/5
App normally runs great. Only complaint is that recently the font size won’t change. Deleted the app, redownloaded, and still won’t work.
Digital Version 5/5
By Best Digital
Much better than the NYT digital version.
Great but... 5/5
....it’s too sensitive. When I zoom in and swipe around the article, it opens the web edition (or it flips to next page)! Otherwise, I love having the paper anywhere I am.
Bad update 1/5
Why the h*** did your update log me out!
Can’t change font size 1/5
Font size adjustment was broken in a recent update. Everything is displayed at aim a huge typeface that can’t be changed. It’s so annoying I stopped using the app.
Does not open on iPad 1/5
After the update in early June, we could no longer open the WP Print Edition on our iPad. It still opens on our iPhones but not on the iPad. We have requested the issue be fixed via email but to no avail. We just want the print edition on the larger screen. Otherwise, the WP is our “go to” source for news.
By Tina Gushtunk
Too liberal. Every almost every article is anti Trump.
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.
Nags Header 5/5
By Nags Header
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.
