App doesn't work 1/5
By F Bird #1
After reading a few pages, app requires me to sign in to my WP account, but when trying to do that I get a photo of the Washington skyline, and no way to sign in.
Amazing app, but... 5/5
So I don’t want to change the star rating, because this is truly a GREAT app. Wish NY TImes and Wall Street Journal would get onboard already, jeez. But there is some room for improvement. For example, if my screen times out for any reason (naps over the Sunday paper, snack breaks,etc.) I lose my place where I was reading, and I’m taken back to the Home Screen. A little annoying to have to flip back through sections... I read the paper how I read a book, just straight through, so I’m not always mindful of what page or section I left off on. Also, the tap to enter web content feature is TOO sensitive. Annoyingly so. A lot of the time that I try to swipe to turn the page, I’m redirected to the ask if I want to open the webpage, or just taken straight there. That honestly does disrupt by flow quite a bit. Would be better if there was one link per page to go to the webpage, instead of making the whole page a link. This also happens when I try to zoom in on text or images.

Recently canceled my subscription. The Post provides good prospectives for both Corporate Republicans and Corporate Democrats, but is clearly biased against Progressives. So I decided to move on to unbiased news sources. If someday the Post decides to change is biased policy I might reconsider in the future. Thanks
Better format, better reading 5/5
This, newspaper the way it is on the newsstand layout, is by far the more enjoyable way to read/use my digital subscription. I much prefer it over the “webpage” style layout which lacks substance. Too bad the NYT online does not offer this option.
Content, news coverage by WaPo is first rate too.
Keep up the great work!
Worth supporting 5/5
By Boston Democrat
The Post is the best source of Wahington news
Crashes constantly on iPad mini 1/5
By Mac since 512k
I would give this 5 stars IF it would open on this iPad, but it crashes immediately, so I read the other version instead when I’m traveling. Still prefer the paper print edition at home. iPad is running latest iOS 12.3.1. No problems on my iPhone.
I have decided to send them pictures of me:
Informative,concise and enjoyable 5/5
By The rock house
Great App I love the post 5/5
I really love reading the reprinted actual paper on my large iPad Pro either the 10.1” or especially the iPad Pro 12.9”
We live in Hume Va and once I download the Post it is great but it takes many many minutes to download. You should know that it takes only a minute or less to download the NYTimes. Seems strange their technology is better. J Connally
Top of the news 5/5
By Ron Mullenix
Reading this great newspaper every day in Baton Rouge. Steady she goes.
Wonderful: Just like the beautiful hard copy 5/5
By Italian Pacer
I purchased a subscription to the Post because of THIS app which exactly replicates the classic hard copy edition. No annoying and distracting pop up adds or video. Just the news, beautiful photography, and newspaper style advertising—all which I review. Thank you for this app!!!
Print Edition of Washington Post 5/5
There are 3 reasons for my 5 star rating.
1. The WP is a well balanced mixture of good journalism (that even survives fact checking) covering global, national, and DC events and imaginative reviews of culture, art, and history.
2. The format for iPads and Notebooks makes reading as close to having actual paper sheets as is possible.
3. The paper is delivered each day reliably and (I subscribe through Amazon) without having to “sign in” with passwords frequently(once every 6 months, perhaps). I can travel and the system still works - even on multiple computers.
Hard to navigate 3/5
By dc news junky
It’s too hard to navigate. I can’t find the editorial page or the op eds. Content I can find is excellent
Worst app ever 1/5
This app is impossible to use. Completely inconsistent with access. Requires relaunching the app every use.
Great while traveling 5/5
It’s so wonderful to keep in touch with Washington Post news while away from home. It’s very easy to use and I appreciate the ‘actual news format’. Thank you.
Why I like the print version of WP 5/5
I like seeing all the articles on one page, typically I read all of front page then decide which story to go to. The digital version is not as enjoyable for me. Thank you for having the print option, love it!
Crazy expensive 1/5
I pay a large fee for daily inhome delivery. They want hundreds more to access online. I get most of my news online. I use BBC, AP, and CNN as well as other online news services for free.
Print Edition 5/5
Easy to use and feels like I’m actually reading “the paper”. As a senior citizen, it’s a lot easier to use my iPad than struggle with the real print copy.
A must have news source 5/5
Absolutely the best... Always with sufficient detail and thoughtful, insightful authors. I throughly enjoy reading the Washington Post daily. My go-to source for the most up-to-date and complete news.
Thank you for asking!
No holds barred 5/5
Nice to read in-depth reporting that pulls no punches. Yet not clearly slanted.
good but should be all one thing 4/5
By A.M. Cacioppo
I very much enjoy being able to read the day’s print edition, but wish it were not a separate app from the regular WP app but could be integrated somehow, as the NYT is.
Spectacular National Edition 5/5
The national and world coverage by the Washington Post is the most complete, authoritative, and balanced news coverage available on the planet.
Frustrating for crossword 1/5
Not bad for reading articles. But trying to do the crossword is incredibly frustrating.
I am forced to watch a 17 second ad before I can access the crossword (despite the fact that I’m a paid digital subscriber and am signed in), then when I click to get Friday’s puzzle, it loads the one from Thursday. That’s ok; I don’t mind working that one. I work on it for a while, go to supper, come back and work it some more, watch some tv, do some more crossword, then go to bed. Each time I went back to the ap after being away for a while, the crossword was there right where I’d left off. The timer had even stopped while I was away. Pretty nice, I thought.
Next day, when I go back to try to finish it, I click on “Thursday” but it gives me Wednesday’s puzzle (after making me watch a 17 second ad). So, I think I’ve figured this out... I go back and click “Friday” in order to get Thursday’s puzzle (it works!). But first I’m forced to watch the same 17 second ad for a 3rd time (again, I am a PAID, signed-in subscriber), and finally Thursday’s puzzle comes up... but it’s blank! My partially completed puzzle is now apparently lost.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but it shouldn’t be this hard.
Print version isn’t working at all 1/5
Until recently, this app works fine. But after the last update, the print app does not work at all on an iPad.
Exact print layout ! 5/5
By Average Small Business
Okay people, NOW is the perfect time to finally walk-away from your dirty, inky & stinky print newspapers.
This Wash Post electronic newspaper layout is identical to the outdated traditional ink newspapers.
‘Print’ edition 5/5
I’ve been getting almost all my news from various online sources for years because of my job, but always missed the daily newspaper. The digital print Washington Post is like an old friend and always brings a smile when I first open the ‘paper.’
The best way to read the Post 5/5
The Washington Post Print App is terrific. The layout matches the actual print edition. It downloads quickly and it is easy to share an article. I love it.
Love the Post 5/5
By nancy in maryland
Thank you for the quality news.
Banner Mars Reading Experience 3/5
I loving having access to the print edition of the Post in this format — being able to read the WP as a paper newspaper on my iPad is far-and-away my preference.
What I’d actually like to do — and what this app seems designed to let me do — is *navigate* the WP like a paper newspaper, but read the articles themselves as if I’d clicked on them from within the digital app. But when you open an article that way as a subscriber from within the print app, there’s an unnecessary and entirely distracting banner ad permanently fixed on the bottom of the screen: THANK YOU FOR READING THE WASHINGTON POST. (It’s where an actual ad would go if I wasn’t a subscriber.)
When you read articles online, or from within the digital app, there’s no distracting banner like that.
This is such an awful design that I spent two weeks going back and forth with WP’s tech support, who assumed that the banner was supposed to disappear when subscribers are logged in — two weeks of IP trying to get the banner to disappear (they assumed the print app wasn’t recognizing that I was logged in) before they realized it’s just an terribly designed reading experience.
Please fix it.
Good read 5/5
A great way to keep informed
Broken for over a week 1/5
Subscriber to Washington Post and I have an open ticket for over one week, that this version of the Post App, and the versions for OVER 1 WEEK have crashed EVERY SINGLE TIME I try and start the app. Or go to the Print Edition from the other Wash Post apps. There is content that is only available in the print edition of the app that I (used to) read regularly that I can to access any more. I’d rate this 0 stars if I could right now.
Logging in doesn’t work 1/5
I just resubscribed in order to be able to link in to the Post from other news apps like google. When linking the Post does not recognize I am a subscriber and using the link to verify I am a Subscriber results in nothing- just a window with a whirling circle stating “Finding Your Subscription.” I feel that my subscription date should be extended until this is fixed. iPhone XR
Washington Post on-line 5/5
I enjoy the on-line
Selected topics are very good.
The digital version of the WP is good.
Refuses to Run 1/5
By Ken Harstine
Opens to a blank screen and then closes.
App doesn’t work since update 1/5
By Xena's Mom
Won’t work since update.
App crashes on start since update a few days ago. Never see the content. Original iPad Air, latest iOS.
Love this app 5/5
By MarkGrace(not really)
It works effortlessly and, like the printed paper, includes stories you won’t see in the on-line version. I also like the home town feel of seeing the print version even when I am far away from home.
Latest update crashes app 1/5
Can’t open app any more. Crashes on initiation. How do I remove this version?
App no longer functions on iPad mini 4 with up to date iOS!
Real News, Great Journalism! 5/5
WP is a great resource for news and opinion pieces. Appreciate the excellent, unbiased reporting and smart opinion articles. The APP works great and keeps me informed no matter where I am.
Latest update, 3/22/19 1/5
By 357 MAG
Goes to a blank Gray screen then crashes and returns to home page.
What’s up, are you trying to kill democracy with darkness or is it all Trumps fault? Enquiring minds want to know.
Previous versions of the Print Edition App would load the morning paper in a matter of seconds. The current version takes minutes.
I find I'm using the app less and less because of the aggravation of waiting for it to load.
The Post 5/5
I have been a reader of the Post for about 48 years. A lot of history has passed during this time, and I’ve depended on the Post to give me the accurate story. I still get the hardcopy and now the online version of the Post. Every morning I look forward to checking out the stories in the Post.
WP Print Edition 5/5
Just love it !!!
Ads and Crossword Puzzles 3/5
The Washington Post is great; being forced to click on a video ad (for a PAID subscription) in order to work the daily crossword puzzle is super annoying and reduces a 5 star rating to a 3 star.
Newsprint Feel 5/5
By Pres. Emertus
Still miss real newspapers but this app is great! Love the newspaper look. Well done.
It would be much better/easier to read if we could go to the next article from the article we just finished reading instead of having to go back to the main page. Copy the Wall Street journal if you want to make for an easier experience. Thanks. Otherwise content is great.
Outstanding displays. Readable on my iPhone 🤓
Latest up date has a bug 2/5
By JSNT IAP
The latest up date has a bug. It doesn’t not clear data when prompted. It freezes at the very end. If it’s not clearing then the data will eventually fill the disk. This needs to be fixed.
Totally glitchy 1/5

Cannot log in or update account. No Buttons work. Software is really a problem since Feb2019
