Great paper 5/5
Has become the equal of the NYTs.
We NEED true news! 5/5
The Washington Post, and others like it, is like a lighthouse in a storm. Careless piloting can sink even an “unsinkable” ship.
Washington Post 5/5
Love having the paper in my hand and reading Favorites - Health Section on Tues, second glance Sunday , food section an food ads, I am a comic fan, special features of Kelly, Courtney, Singletary, Style everyday, especially on Sunday with movie, concert and reviews, Local on Thursday especially home sales and features on home repairs, and painting, furniture design and placement, Business, especially on Sunday, and Outlook I check the obituaries daily I just love reading the post.
When I am out and about I check it out on my “I phone”. I like being notified immediately about news as soon as it happens. I like being able to read my comics without toting my paper along for doctor appointments etc.
Great reporting 5/5
Great news stories every day. First thing I read in the morning. Democracy is safer with the Post around. We have to our part as well.
Thank you 5/5
Thank you for sharing
The last hope to defend democracy 5/5
By Susan Ritchie
Democracy is in great peril. We have a partisan Supreme Court that recently told the GOP that gerrymandering was just politics and a good example of “to the victor goes the spoils.” We have a totally dysfunctional Congress. Even on matters where there might be common ground to pass legislation for the benefit of American citizens, Congress can’t act for fear of giving the other side a victory. We have an infantile and corrupt President whose only interests seems to be settling scores. We have a White House plagued by incompetence, corruption, and historic rates of turnover. Our President attacks our friends and coddles our enemies. Our President actually tells us that journalists are the enemy of the people. Yet, we know these things because of the great journalism of organizations like the Washington Post. Americans should be eternally grateful for the courage and determination to tell the truth in an era that simply accepts that the President of the United States of America lies about all things big and small. We are no longer shocked. His supporters defend him on the basis of “alternative facts.” In this era, we need a vigorous and free press more than at anytime in our history. I hope all Americans will be vigilant in support of the truth and the need for great institutions like the Washington Post whose journalistic excellence shines a bright light on the perils our country faces today.
Good reporting but... 3/5
Can’t search for reporters or articles. And there is no way to see back issues.
Well worth it! 5/5
I'd been running out of free articles in the middle of every month, so finally subscribed. The App works well and the graphics are great.
I have a subscription! 3/5
By Bad repeats
But often I cannot read articles if I try to get them through email or Apple news. I am told I am over my limit. Great newspaper. Bad app.
Pay for a subscription and you still don’t get paywall stories in the app.
Best Views 5/5
Timely news with outstanding writing. I am a subscriber for two years and read it twice a day. I wouldn't be without it.
WaPo review 5/5
I have enjoyed reading the Washington Post for many, many years. The tagline ‘Democracy dies in Darkness’ says everything about the reasons why....
Rebirth of American Journalism 5/5
By Flyover Country
WaPo covers the world with stories I might not see otherwise. Eugene Robinson’s frank and down to earth opinions are happy bonus.
News That Matters 5/5
Plus Opinions worth reading.
Problems with app 1/5
I love the reading format of the WP. But I have to restart it every few minutes as it spontaneously shuts down. I’ve complained before. I was told to use another form of access, which I tried and disliked.
I rely on the Washington Post and consider it a privilege to support it.
Good mobile news site 4/5
By Lane County reader
Easy to digest version of the Post with headlines that attract attention without descending into clickbait.
Unreadable due to all the ads 2/5
The number of ads is going up dramatically even with paid subscriptions. It is getting to the point that a large percentage of the “articles” are just more ads. The website is far superior.
Great Newspaper, Great Format 5/5
World class journalism in a very readable format.
Terrific coverage. Second to none
Keeps me up on line with the Washington Post 5/5
By Mason Jarr
Better than the app on my kindle fire. This gets me all the Wapo breaking news immediately.
Frankly if I subscribed to the print edition they would just pile up unread in my apartment. This has a much smaller carbon footprint.
Limited content that includes advertising 1/5
By LB in Chicago
I pay a subscription to get this paper. But they only show a limited amount of their content. Worse, they have advertisements disguised as articles. They also slip ads into the videos. How giving me the content and charging an extra dollar?
I supported this paper but it’s not worth it for this product.
iPad layout is just “ok” 4/5
Awkward iPad layout. I much prefer a tabular column on the left with each of those articles shown sequentially on the right, one at a time. Avoid the completely useless over-use of photos like the LA Times setup—theirs is the worst layout I’ve ever seen. AP has an excellent format, so I always start my morning reading there.
Overall great at frequent news updates, but... 4/5
I go to this app for its frequently updated home page with new stories (and admittedly because The Washington Post is somewhat reflective of my own political ideology). However one thing that can drive me crazy is its poor copy editing. Many times there are repeated paragraphs (or sets of sentences) that were likely moved from one spot to another in the article, but then just not deleted from their original position. Words are regularly misspelled due to a typographical error (e.g., yesterday a story on Iran’s strike on a U.S. drone referred to it as a “done”). It reflects poorly on the paper, and they need to put more effort here. I would also prefer some more in-depth stories online.
Too liberal and biased to left 1/5
By tim bahrain
The constant Trump bashing gets old. Just report the news
Doesnt work well at all with App Store subscriptions 1/5
By mike #fedup with bad apps
Two very serious issues:
1. The default basic subscription is arguably less informative than free online sources such as msnbc, cnn and fox. I call it the cripple post. Missing most of the in depth articles and subjectively not worth it
2. neither their select nor regular apps play well with the apple App Store. After purchasing a premium subscription I spent HOURS on the phone with apple and several exchanged tech support Emails try to get their app to A. Recognize or “restore subscription”. When it finally restored it consistently restores back to basic or “cripple post”.
So far, replies from post tech support are not helping at all.
Hate the app (but the news is FANTASTIC!!!) 1/5
What are they thinking about with this app?!?! They must really think we are idiots the way the app presents the news.
Read the paper from the web, or via the email alerts. The app blows.
Guys. You can do better.
Facebook is bad. Don’t aspire to being Facebook.
Daily Blood Pressure 5/5
By Kat Ballou 53
At the very heartbeat of this nation, the WaPo’s journalism monitors the pressures which impact our lives.
Brilliant analyses and cogent assessments are the emerging vital signs. Consistently prescient. One can trust these path reports.
A TRUSTED NEWS SOURCE 5/5
In these times of polarization and partisanship it is critical to have a trusted news source. I turn to the post everyday for national news stories that are honest, well-researched, and relevant. The Washington Post has the resources to ferret out critical details and the integrity to follow truth over agenda. This is the only national newspaper I subscribe to online. I am pleased to find the post leading the news cycle most of the time. They provide information and insight which keeps me informed. It’s a great value for a small investment.
Great news source! 5/5
I love the Washington post and this is a great app. However why doesn’t it support writing and reading comments?
Good app great newspaper 4/5
Despite what some politicians say WP is an excellent source for the news. The app work great.
Great format 5/5
I subscribe to a few online news sources but find the Washington Post is the easiest to read and the one I go to first for the most up to date facts of the day.
Biased reporting 3/5
Although the writing skills of most reporters are excellent- there is an anti POTUS bias that essentially permeates throughout the publication. I am not certain if any major news delivery service gives “equal time” anything more than lip service, but the Washington Post used to do a pretty descent job in that regard.
More balanced reporting would be a welcomed return of the WAPO’s glory days.
asks for reviews 1/5
stop asking for reviews. you are the post ffs.
The excellence of The Washington Post’s journalism 5/5
I find the daily reporting a much needed complement to all the other sources I read, correcting their excursions into hyperbole and pointing out their lack of showing valid points in opposition to essentially propaganda from one side which is strongly fighting to confuse those who don’t have the time, or maybe just the inclination to search out the fuller truth on an issue.
My favorite newsletters are:
AIl the 202 newsletters, but particularly:
The Energy 202,
The Technology 202,
The Health 202,
The Cybersecurity 202,
and, not least,
The Week in Ideas,
First Reads, and
And some new newsletters that I am evaluating seem useful.
Great source of information 5/5
Not just politics. Today there was a clip about all the iPhone trackers that come in at all the times when the phone is inactive- in the middle of the night. Excellent source of information.
Bad customer service 2/5
By likes news--hates technology
There is no meaningful customer service. I paid for service on my iPhone & have been unable to get it to coordinate with my iPad. The response was essentially”keep trying; good bye, good luck”.
The WP 5/5
A responsible voice for the Resistance.
Best news source 5/5
By Jonny Papers
I read The Post on my phone before i get out of bed every morning. Essential app. Wouldn’t want to live without it.
Lacking access to past articles in the app 4/5
When the news is 2 days old, well, don't go into the app looking to catch up. It isn't there.
A News Source You Can Trust 5/5
By Man of the Desert
People will tell you that good, reliable sources of news cannot be trusted – that their news is “fake” and their facts are “lies”.
They can’t prove it. There’s no evidence for. If there were, you’d know about it. The Washington Post has been a reliable source of information for generations, and anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you something, or hide something.
Great articles and presentation 5/5
The Wa Po app design is superior visually and it’s very easy to scroll through, just like flipping through pages in a magazine. Enjoy it very much!
No local news 3/5
The app does not have local dc md va news. You have to log onto the website to view that. Quite a limitation
Sunshine on Truth 5/5
Keep the great reporting coming.
Love the layout and photos 4/5
But scrolling through the articles is visually uncomfortable as they change size
Washington Post most reliable 5/5
The Washington Post is the most reliable American newspaper for accurate, concise and fearless reporting on the issues and challenges our democracy faces.
Better than the NYTimes, but... 1/5
The app is squirrelly. Takes forever for images to load, and then when they finally do, they’re usually photos from a different article. Just hire somebody who knows Photoshop to optimize images, and they’ll probably be smart enough to figure out which photos go with which articles.
Best way to get the latest news!! Love, Love, Love!! 5/5
I’ve had the”Times” for years and only in the last year decided to subscribe to the Washington Post!! The app is absolutely beautiful!! And, in my opinion, the Post is just more reader friendly!! I do also read and watch CNN, the “Times” and a few others...... but the “Post” is definitely my favorite!!
My #1 real news coverage 5/5
By Illinois Nona
No on-llne news matches The Post for beautifully written coverage of news in USA and world. And Post Opinion section is deep and intelligent, reflecting humane values. I read it daily and appreciate the on-line format which is an exact mirror of the paper version. Like having my own copy at my doorsteps!
