Please always keep the presses running. 5/5
What a great layout. Click on an article and it’s opened in a reader. Thanks.
An online paper that got it right! 5/5
I love the print addition of the WAPO. It’s like reading and browsing a regular paper on my iPad. I can see a whole page virtually at a glance, expand any article I want to read or if the article continues on another page, tap the title and the full uninterrupted article pops up. When I’ve finished the article I can easily return to the page I’ve left. I have online subscriptions to 2 other papers, nether of which are as user friendly, intuitive nor interesting to browse through. Thanks for a great morning read!
On paper or online, it’s still “fake news”. I just read the sports page.
My Post 5/5
By native DC
Having been a Post junkie from a very young age I am thrilled to carry the print edition with me on my phone. I can almost hear the pages turning.
Best newspaper reader going 5/5
Perfect reader a world where news readers like google news have become completely worthless. You can browse like a real paper, then zoom in to the full article formatted for the web with a single click. No worthless giant pictures, lots of real content.
iPad version rocks 5/5
I have been a reader of the post for some time and I tend to prefer the static layout of a real printed page over dynamic forms. This does it well and appears to be superior to the android version. Very smooth scrolling and scaling. The only nit is that dynamic stories have ads at the bottom that cover part of the page - even with a subscription.
Of course, the best part of it is the journalism... democracy dies in darkness ...indeed.
Best newspaper app ever 5/5
Love the wapo app. Just like reading the newspaper.
not living up to its promise 2/5
possibly should only be docking this app only one star (or at most two) but the “My Post” section for saved stories is infuriatingly unreliable!!
If You Love the Classic Newspaper Experience... 5/5
... this app is for you. It loads quickly and provides each page laid out as if in print. It’s easy to navigate within and through pages. Best newspaper app ever!
World press 5/5
That’s my opinion of the Washington Post never afraid to print the truth.
Google s edit 4/5
Hate that some articles can’t be forwarded. Google editing the WP? Can’t stand the google ads that pop up during reading enlarged articles. Didn’t I pay for my print already? Too bad bean counters and google are determining content....
The truth 5/5
By Responsible for climate
I live in the best place in the world on a; island near. Charleston SC but our poor newspaper can cover national and world news in a very truncated way ...and the editorial content skews conservative. The Post (or WAPO) remains my source for real news And insights. I lived in the area for a few years and ram still somewhat interested in local and city events. Thanks WAPO
Classic style Post 5/5
By L Voigt
I love this style that looks just like the paper edition. I like how you can tap to go to the article in a larger, more readable format. The ability to send articles to friends is a big plus.
I usually read Style and Metro sections, look at the front page, get angry because they just want to trash the president, then close it.
Except for Tuesdays when the Health & Science appears and, of course, the Weekend paper has news other than politics.
A joy to read and navigate 5/5
By Pete Cala
I enjoy the digital print edition. Just like reading and navigating print but easier! I also like the fact that I can send articles to friends and family.
Solid News 5/5
The Washington Post is simply great journalism and writing.
No clutter 5/5
WAPO makes it easy to enjoy reading the news with this app.
Love the iPad print edition 5/5
All the benefits of a real newspaper without the paper.
Paid $145 for subscription that I can't read. 1/5
Native Washingtonian. No longer live in paper distribution zone so I have to go with the digital format. This app is denying me my ability to read the paper in my iPad Pro. So now I have to use the website. Seriously get it together WaPo..
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.
Functional flaws 4/5
App is generally good, but on iPad, often the link to send an article, save an article, print an article, etc, does not work.
Too Biased 1/5
By Native Alexandrian
Wish the Post was not so politically biased. Now, I only read, if I read it at all, the Health and Local sections. I no longer feel that I can trust the Post’s reporting. The Post needs to publish less opinion and more news.
Just like a read newspaper 5/5
I have three version of Washington Post digital and this is my favorite. Just like a real paper. Gives the sense of the Front Page, with the Editor’s view on importance of articles that you don’t get with other digital editions. Nicely done!
What is there not to love? 5/5
By Loyal WP Fan
I love the luxury of being able to have access to the paper and/or the electronic copy anywhere we are.
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. I can read it without glasses. Auto delivered, it keeps you in the know of the news as it occurs.
Print edition 5/5
When we first started taking the Post via Amazon, it was the national edition only. After a year or longer, both editions were made available. We lived in DC area two times and were so pleased to have access to the print edition via our Amazon account. Thank you.
Too much liberal bias 1/5
By pragmatic libertarian
I cannot believe anything i read in this paper. Reporters think they are opinion writers.
Now More Than Ever 5/5
We need the Post to shine the light on what is happening. Once again the Post and the NYT are playing a pivotal role in our country. Please keep up your efforts and know that so many of us support and appreciate what you do!
Great — when it works 5/5
Ever since the last update to this app, it loses (“forgets”) its download on my iPad mini 2. The last 2 days, I have successfully downloaded the paper at home using WiFi and read it in the morning on the train without internet access. But when I try to read it in the evening, without internet access, it tries to download the paper again and obviously can’t and just gives a message that says “No Internet Connection.” This has never been an issue before. Please fix this ASAP. It’s frustrating.
Online Post: 2/5
By trivia to power
Make the Washington Post online as easy to read as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Need to be informed 5/5
Took advantage of the $9.99 6 month trial subscription offer. Have been using since beginning of January. App works perfectly and allows me to keep up with important legit national and international news. So far, very happy. Intend to renew to the electronic annual subscription when the trial period is up. Think the annual electronic subscription is about $150
To get the cheap six month trial you need to free subscribe to the e-mail daily briefing first.
I do like the ability to select which sections download, I.e. I don't download sports or D.C. ad inserts. You do see all sections, those chosen do not download but are visible, so if you decide to read you just click on the cloud and that sections is available.
Do suggest that you use both the print app AND web app. When reading from the print app. Clicking on the story switches apps. The web app can be visually easier to read.
Also do sign up for daily briefs to email. For through the days updates
Washington Post for the IPad 2/5
This app is nicely laid out just like you're reading the actual newspaper, but it's often unstable after you zoom in on an area of the page causing the pages to frustratingly crash, requiring you to relocate your spot again.
Great newspaper 5/5
I have been reading the Post since I delivered the paper in my neighborhood back in 1962-65. I enjoy the international news as well as national. The hometown news keeps me up on what’s going on in Virginia. I moved to Colorado 5 years ago and still have my Washington Post via internet.
First source of news 5/5
A very well organized app for getting national news! The Post covers politics like no other paper. They go beyond the horse race and provide deep analysis of the issues confronting our nation. I also like that the post gives me the option of viewing stories as a news feed, or I can read an online version of the paper. Best feature: immediate coverage of breaking political news through their notifications.
My experience with the Washington Post 5/5
Very good app, would wish if the comics were not in such small format as wish they can be enlarged like the lettering.
Washington Post 5/5
It provides the best coverage with excellent opinion articles
Good for What it Is 4/5
By Out-of-Town Old Lady
With the exception of some maneuvering issues, I like this method. However, having both print and facsimile apps is, I find the best way to get all I want from the paper.
Printed version 5/5
By terminally inane
Enjoy on line every day
Problem with mailing articles after opening an article 4/5
By Dissatisfied 310
I occasionally want to email an article that I’ve opened (opened by tapping on the text of the article). The icon at the top of the page works only half the time - sometimes it responds and will email the article, sometimes pressing that icon does nothing. I’m on an iPad.
Simply fantastic 5/5
The fact that I can read a “print edition” from anywhere in the world at anytime is just amazing.
Best newspaper reader I have used 4/5
Sharper photos and text, easier to transport than paper. No good for wrapping the fish scraps. We cancelled the regular delivery of the paper version. Wish it would allow turning the page even when zoomed in on an article - you have to get a page back to its default size before turning to the next page. Can nag about some of the settings even if you have answered the question several times.
I really like the full page version of the WP. I prefer seeing all the news, not just selections from it. Also, I enjoy the updated news that’s posted throughout the day.
Cancel subscription 5/5
The subscriber is deceased and it is impossible to cancel his subscription to the digital/print edition
I can’t even easily put in the nickname required!
I want the Maryland Living section 4/5
I just switched to digital from delivery for environmental reasons, but am disappointed that I now get the District edition of the Living section. No crime reports or real estate for my area. Please change this.
New Update 5/5
By Talking Points
Print edition is much improved after the latest update. Fast loading pages, smooth page turning, and option to not download sections that you don't usually read. Great job WP! Update 4/30/16: page sections or entire page blacks out frequently when page is expanded to enlarge the type for reading. This happens about every other page. The only way to read the blacked out page is to pinch down to initial type size, swipe to go to next page, swipe back bad then the original page can be read without blacking out.
Update 2: moving around expanded page using finger swipes and gestures has gotten worse especially when using one finger to move around an expanded page. Sometimes it works and other times it closes the page or goes to next page. Then you have to reopen the page or page back. Very irritating.
Update 3: after more than a year the developers finally fixed the app so that you can use just one finger to move around the page without weird things happening. Thank goodness that was fixed!
Like old one better. 1/5
Very slow to upload and very often have to download the same issue more than once. Does not keep track of last page viewed. After zooming into a page, when you try to move the page it will instead turn to the next page.
Why is it so hard to flip pages? 1/5
By U txt t r e r
Looks and acts like the print edition at first. But once the reader enlarges the page to read the tiny type page flips just bounce against the edge. Oh you mean I have to carefully reduce the page back to its original display size before I can move on? But not too far or you are returned to the front section choice. This annoying behavior only gets more so. Update: still does this a year later. And half the glowing reviews refer to erratic page turning behavior. It’s apparent you really are not listening to this feedback.
Work always on accuracy, you’re the best paper in the nation... stay strong
Almost, but not quite. 5/5
This is the next best thing to spreading the paper out and reading it.
Light in Darkness 5/5
Thank god for WP and Jeff Bezos.
Kavanaugh lied about bopping and Devil’s Triangle.
That means he lies period!!
Run a story on the fall of how a supreme court nominee fell because of those acts.
