The Washington Post is non-accessible in e-print form. A waste of time to try to read. There is no way to find the Business section from the May 31, 2020 WP.
I will seriously consider another source for my online news including stopping my print subscription.
Unbiased reporting 5/5
By M PNP
I read the Washington Post for its truthful fact checked unvarnished reporting in these in these unprecedented and troubled times.
Print Edition is where it’s at 5/5
That alone makes it five stars
Your killing it! 5/5
The NYT used to be the first paper I read in the morning. Not anymore. Your interface is much better, the stories broader and the reporting more substantial. Plus I have a tiny crush on MB.😉
Great original reporting
Well-developed stories with quotes from reputable sources
Dark mode 5/5
I hate the dark mode in the app, how do I get rid of it?
The best ! 5/5
By far the best news app on the market.
Paper is fabulous but online search, not so much 5/5
The paper is fantastic & you should definitely subscribe to support it & the journalists who work for it. My only beef is with the online edition- the search function is positively awful!!!!
App running continuously in background 1/5
To add to the other recent reviews within the last week or so the app has run in the background for hours at a time. I've uninstalled the app until this gets resolved.
Support a free press 5/5
If you want reporters to print the truth then you must pay to subscribe to make that possible. The Washington Post is critical to keeping the nation informed.
Utterly unable to provide support for all digital access 1/5
I love the Washington Post. Beware of the digital access subscription. I’ve been attempting to get access for over a month and still can’t even get enough support for password resets. Not only have I lost access on my devices, I now struggle to even sign into through my laptop. Fix your glitches WaPo.
Print edition 5/5
By Reading Radiologist
Love the ability to read the paper as the print edition.
Print edition not working 1/5
This morning the print edition stopped working. It as working fine before that. The news is not loading.
Why is this running continuously in background?? 4/5
Second the reviewer who found battery life being throttled by the WaPo app running nonstop in the background. Fix this please.
Letter to the editor: 5/5
By Human Doing
Eugene Robinson is a favored columnist and commentator of mine. In today’s opinion piece, he comes as close as anyone ever has for me to imagine being a person of color - something presumptuous to even consider. However, we’re at a place where we better recognize that being white means not “being black,” i.e., living in constant fear of being punished and worse, simply for being. My heart hurts and my nerves tense due to the deeply imbedded injustices afforded the innocent in this country.

Washington Post is killing battery 1/5
Battery Activity is reporting that the Washington Post app is performing nonstop background activity and killing my battery. I have Background App Refresh disabled in the OS. It shows nonstop activity even while I am asleep. The only fix is to kill the app. This is happening on multiple devices. Please fix!
Good content but app crashes all the time 2/5
Why does the WAPO app constantly close windows? The app remains open but not selected as if it is processing in the background, or worse, is harvesting information. Stabilize it! Bezos and his Amazon gurus should be able to fix stupid problems.
Not everyone hates our president 1/5
I choose to be Apolitical and biased towards politics and most of your articles are very one sided. If it wasn’t for the TV guide and food section it would be my newspaper at all
Comments sections ? 3/5
I like the layout of the app but I can’t find the comments sections. On the web version, they’re just at the bottom of the articles. Zero ability to find them in the app.
No subscriber sign in 1/5
I am a Washington post subscriber. Today I received a message to update carrier settings on my phone which I did. Following that access to the Washington post app was removed although I am entitled to access as a subscriber. I can’t find where to sign in. How do I regain access?
I cancelled my subscription 2/5
Just a couple days left of looking at this rag. Print news has gone down hill and is accelerating. WaPo has settled in National Enquirer territory. I’ll stick with WSJ and ABC News.
Grateful to the Washington Post 5/5
By Dave from Bethesda
I’m lucky to be receiving the Post in paper and digital forms every day. Such a reliable part of my life and essential reading in this difficult time. I only hope that if the management ever decides to discontinue the paper edition they will keep composing the paper that way for the digital app, at least for the rest of my biological life. Ha!
The sidebar that you recently added is a great impediment to my ability to read the digitized facsimile of the daily paper. I have low vision and read the paper on my iPad. The sidebar does not allow me to enlarge the print and prevents me from using the magnifier that I ordinarily use to read notifications since it sits in top of the magnifier,
How do I remove this new feature?
I find the Post the better than the Times. You present 5/5
By Bob O.F.M.
Ideas that I like in a better style and to the point!
The Washington Post is REAL news 5/5
The Washington Post is REAL news that is sadly lacking in many other newspapers. Read the news not Trump Right Wing propaganda in the Post and I’ll also add New York Times!
A National Treasure! 5/5
By Root of the Matter
Sharp reporting-clarity of message - and honest, fearless investigative reporting-a bulwark of freedom !
Above review is still correct. Another issue—the app does not remember a password so one is always signing in.
Mixed Review 3/5
Grateful for the coverage, articles, and all that I expect from subscribing to WaPo. Unhappy with a clunky app that doesn’t show comments on the iPad which means taking an extra step to go on my computer. The comments are part of why I read and subscribe to WaPo online and being able to read in an app on the iPad is much more enjoyable then sitting at the computer. At first I thought it must be something with my settings somehow, but after googling, I can find nothing about this issue except here in the reviews about this app. I imagine they must know this is a problem and just don’t care.
By Arnie H.
Thank you and your counterparts at the New York Times for keeping us informed.
Improving in past few years 4/5
Although it’s owner Jeff Beespzos is controversial the paper has benefited by his wealth to become very good. It needs more columnists of various points of view and it needs to
publish less Jennifer Rubin and more George Will for balance.
Print edition 5/5
The print edition is like reading an actual newspaper, like in the old days. It is fantastic!
Can’t seem to get what I paid for 1/5
I Purchased a subscription. I Followed all the prompts and guides.
It took nearly an hour to confirm the subscription.
Now every time I try to read the Post, i’m told I need to subscribe.
Need to fix page turning feature 3/5
I enjoy reading the print version but since switching to the new app I am increasingly disappointed that I can’t swipe to turn the pages. It doesn’t consistently work like it should.
Who do you think I am 2/5
I go to the iPad app and can see I’m signed in. I start reading a story and it tells me I need to sign in . I sign in it confirms and The Whole process starts again ....I never get to read the article. This happens regularly. What’s the point of a subscription you can only get headlines with no depth. Might as well watch TV
Hard hitting WP! Thank you! 5/5
By Truth vs Trump's lies
Washington Post is a counterweight to the sycophants in his administraron and Senate Leader whose lies are repeated on Fox!
So happy I subscribed 5/5
Great journalism! True Facts and it is greatly appreciated when we hold on it nation’s leadership accountable.
Basically Allows A Quick Preview 3/5
... for later perusal on a computer
In the mobile app:
• Numerous article links navigate to different articles
• Numerous links navigate to a “can’t be found “ type error
• Comment section not available
Lousy digital format 1/5
By leaving the Post
I find the new Post digital format impossibly confusing. It abandons entirely the previous format which itself followed the well known and tested print format. What was in the minds of the editors?
Awesome Newspaper 5/5
This paper always reports the news so clearly that it is easy to follow what is going on in the world. I thoroughly enjoy reading your paper everyday day.
Pretty good app, but full of links that open to a paywall 4/5
The app works well and the subscription is nice however more and more articles are linked to open in a browser instead of within the app. If you’re not logged in, this presents a paywall and is a nuisance.
Fantastic journalism 4/5
I think that the journalists from Washington Post do a fantastic job. The articles are so informative and very well researched. This is my first year subscribing to this newspaper and using the app Nd I’m really valuing the insight this newspaper provides. My only slightly negative comment regarding the app itself is the way the articles are displayed. I’ve subscribed to the UK Times newspaper app for a number of years and find their layout so much easier to navigate.
This app is a joke - a bad one 1/5
I subscribed to The Post over an hour ago and have spent most of my time since then trying to get signed in to this app. When I open the app and enter the email address on my WaPo account I get a pop-up telling me that I need to sign in on the website so that the site and the app can share my info. The Boston Globe and The New York Times don’t ask me to jump through hoops like this, but okay.
When I sign in on washingtonpost dot com I receive an email telling me that a link has been sent to my email for one-click log in. Okay fine. I go to the email and click. It takes me back to the website and I’m all logged in. Then I go to the app and - lather, rinse, repeat. I was able to log in to the website using my email and password on my laptop, but when I want back to my phone to give it a try - same stupid loop all over again.
I do not want to have to log in to a website on my phone. I want and need the convenience of an app. Apparently I’ll not get that here. I don’t currently have a personal laptop or desktop to use for this. I’m glad I got a good promo rate to subscribe. I won’t lose more than a few dollars for this month. I’ll be canceling once I hit “send” on this.
Keep up the great work! 5/5
By Bill from Frederick
I am really glad that somebody in Washington is keeping an honest eye on things. No Hexachlorowhynottryit, Clorox or Lysol necessary for the truth.
(And I am an Amazon fan too)
Need the Date and Time stamp at the top. None right now! 1/5
Please do it. Thanks.
By Fun game, it was nice
Great app. Too bad no functionality for comments.
Nation’s Newspaper 5/5
Our nation’s renowned newspaper born out of the Pentagon Papers at which time Ben Bradley called his Paper “...a small local paper.” And don’t forget it’s continued meteoric rise during Watergate. Outstanding Pulitzer Prize winning journalism and a continued important source of the daily grind from our Nation’s Capital in the era of Trump. The TRUTH has never been more important than our current times. Democracy does indeed fall in darkness. And as we say in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, “United we stand, Divided we fall!”
Touchy, you have to get the page just right in order to turn it: frustrating. 1/5
By Scott vvvv
Touchy, you have to get the page just right in order to turn it: frustrating.
Too Liberal 2/5
I didn’t vote for Trump, however I must say much of your commentary, most of your stories have a negative motivation as if your paid by the DNC. Many of the commentaries are slanderous unprofessional drival. I was surprised to read one story which was fair on Obama Gate. I’m back to the post on a trial basis after four years I doubt I will stay with you.
Love Washington Post 5/5
Great reports on whatever comes up during the day
