Great content. Terrible App. 1/5
Please restore previous version. App constantly closes☹️. Extremely difficult to finish an article. Thought Amazon Owned WP?

Superior in every way. Remarkable use of the Internet’s capabilities. And honorable news reporting besides
Subscription Page Blocks Accesd 1/5
By Mikee AKA Dad
Enemy though I am paying for this, I can’t get to articles without a Subscription request page coming up and blocking my access without another subscription.
Good reporting, app could improve 4/5
The app works and is bug free, however, it’s very minimalistic.
First, all stories are in one big long list, so you scroll from the top of ‘Top News’ on down thru stories by news sections. Stories in the list are ‘big’ - they almost fill my entire iPhone screen - so you don’t really get a sense of browsing or scanning for a story, it’s more of an iterative look at each story sequentially in the entire WAPO. As an alternative, the app could offer multiple article list viewing format options. Some good options to add into that mix would be reduced image thumbnail size, landscape mode, excerpt size and some ability to personalize the content organization.
Second, the date organization seems random. Sometimes stories seem to stick around, other times they are just gone. The search function does seem to turn up older stories, but it’s not possible to, for instance, be offline for a weekend, then go back to read the news from the days you missed. I also see a lot of WAPO articles that show up other places, like Apple News, that I swear I never saw in the WAPO app. It’s very possible I just missed them, but it also hints at He fact that other news aggregators are able to identify WAPO articles I am interested in that I never discovered in the WAPO app.
Final small gripe: why can I not zoom in on the comics page?? Instead I have to click on each comic, then I can zoom in on just that single one to be able to read the text. Result: it’s not worth it to read the comics on my phone.
Total exoneration from Mueller Report 5/5
I am so proud to subscribe to the WP. Your investigations and “explainers” helped pursue truth. For me, that was huge. Love to the free press.
Washington Post 5/5
Great set-up for an app! Top articles right there and easy to find any articles or sections I’m looking for...
Best news in depth! 5/5
By BRP Cathy
Great app to get in depth stories written by professional journalists. I am proud to support this kind of much-needed honest journalism.
My “go to” source for news 5/5
By NH Political Junkie
Read it everyday. Period.
Post Takes It To The New York Times 5/5
By Post Admirer
The Washington Post has surpassed The New York Times and is now the most comprehensive and the by far the best written newspaper in America!
Even-handed, well-researched journalism 5/5
Good format of daily news with cross references, covering politics to science. This is not, as too many “news” channels are, politically-driven editorials. You’ll learn and be empowered, reading The Washington Post.
The Washington Post app has recently become unstable on iOS, erratically exiting at random moments. I wouldn't have bothered to have mentioned that here, except that after the latest crash, on reopening the app, it asked me to rate and review it. Bad timing. Generally I like it, but this recent crashing is annoying.
Owner George Newberry 5/5
The Washington Post is my first stop as the day begins. I collect the stories I plan to read from the feed and then during the day go through the saved articles to pick those to discuss at afternoon wine time with my partner (wife). So you see the Post is an important part of my life.
Not happy. Continually knocks me out requiring password 3/5
Phone App Great, iPad Not So Much 4/5
The journalism is very good. The phone app version is fine. Don’t like the iPad split screen presentation as much. Seems like more could be done with the real estate. Something like the page of a paper with multiple articles.
Facts Matter 5/5
I depend on the Post to cut through the bluster noise and distortion of what passes as “ news” these days and present thoughtful well sourced material that cuts through the “ alternative facts” we find ourselves drowning in these past three years. I like picking up my phone reading the Post and experiencing a return to sanity. Facts do matter.
You the best 5/5
By Dorka Uborka
You caused me to be totally addicted to your paper. I know every curl and curve of the Trump saga. Can’t live without you. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Ads annoying 2/5
Paid subscribers should not have to endure commercials.
Rarely any news in this app. 10 anti-trump stories for every one on another subject. No objectivity any more.
Most Interesting & informative paper 5/5
I read online and would not miss a day. Great paper
Nice to have a news source that provides multiple perspectives.
Great paper 5/5
Resent having to fill this out in order to remove the stupid box in front of my article.

The combination of ease of use and good reading is perfect. A go to app on my phone!

Thank God and Jeff Bezos for the Washington Post!
By wassup washpo?
App routinely crashes after 1/2-5 minutes.
Not a great UX 3/5
I’ll see a Facebook post about a WaPo Article, and somehow I can’t find said article in the app. Also, can’t you organize content by type (eg opinion) like you do on the website?
WaPo better today than during Nixon debacle 5/5
Washingtonians, Americans and people everywhere who value democracy and freedom of speech, have in the Washington Post one of most important institutions on earth.
A great newspaper 5/5
We enjoy reading The Post daily.
My go to news source. 5/5
This and the 202 emails are my favorite source for information and opinion. And I can find opinions on both sides.
Been Reading for Decades 5/5
By Mr. GuyE
The WaPo app is an easy read, well organized, and the search function works very well.
Love the photojournalism 5/5
As a third generation photographer and son of a newspaper photojournalist who studied with Cliff Edom (often credited as the father of photojournalism) at the University of Missouri I love and appreciate the wonderful story-telling pairing of words and pictures in every story on the app. Well done!
This is one of my main go-to news apps. The research and detailed reporting are outstanding. The range of opinions found in the Opinion section are excellent. For those wanting honesty and accurate reporting and not just ‘both side-isms’, the Washington Post is a must.
Excellent Paper 5/5
By four souls
Reading up on the news is a must although it is often depressing. I count on the Post to help gain a balanced perspective of the latest news. Journalism and papers like the post are at the front lines saving our democratic voice. Thank you.

The Washington Post 5/5
Always timely and reliable 5/5
On a daily basis, I look to the WP for accurate news and thoughtful commentary, especially about the disturbing erosion of the Republic and our representative democracy.
By yvo n
TWP is my fave news source plus TWP is first with breaking news!
Valuable Daily Resource 5/5
In order to stay informed of important issues in the US and the world, I read articles in the digital addition of the Washington Post every morning. The Opinions section is also an important resource for me. I trust the Washington Post to seek the truth beneath the spin.
Great reporting 5/5
I will not move forward each day until I read the Washington Post. Important reporting and great opportunity to understand what our politicians are doing for their constituents !! Also great Sports information and General News across country. MUST READ
Double Score 5/5

A must read to start your day 5/5
By Bored in Harrington
I don’t get out of bed before reading the Post!
Easy reading 5/5
We’ve been using the online version of the post for several years. We find very convenient. I can just go down the list of news articles and quickly go to the news that most interests me, I like the idea that I’m not wasting tons of paper. And, of course the Washington post is one of the best newspapers in the country - a touch to the left - but still really a great source of news with great news writers.
Magnificent writing 5/5
By Rural Rabbi
This is definitely my favorite place for news. The app is good, much above average. Only thing missing is the ability to choose the news sections that I want. Other than that, works well and is very readable. What makes this a truly five star app is the excellence in reporting and writing.
First Place 5/5
The first news I read before all the others.
Thank you! 5/5
By Carrie from Portland
The Post’s professionalism, investigative reporting, and concern for democratic values make me grateful every day. I appreciate how you represent America to America for America.
If you love great news get this app and subscribe 5/5
Great news doesn’t happen without paying customers and this app is worth subscribing to. Great UI, super easy to use.
Better than a newspaper 5/5
I want good journalism always available on my phone or computer. Here it is with as objective a view available today considering how hard it is to avoid bias in this contemptible society.
