App Reviews

  • Freezes Too Much

    By GrannyDar
    The Washington Post is an outstanding publication but the App is not as stellar. It freezes while loading, while reading articles and when brought back from multi-tasking. I have to frequently close it to get it to load articles or scroll to read them. It also does not bookmark where you last left off if you are away from it too long. It's graphics intensive nature may be to blame especially if you have an older device with less memory or it may be bloated causing it to misuse memory. It's indexing from the provided list and articles is also not smooth. If it were someone else who did not provide such good content I would rate it one star. It's been frustrating using it. I hope these issue can be addressed soon.

    Excellent information. It does not load easily onto my devices. I subscribed to get real news...nothing but.
  • Format all wrong....

    By Wrong Temperatures
    Does not correlate with articles I see on email sent daily by them. No way to find articles.... this will be dropped.
  • Almost perfect

    By Owllight
    I like the layout, the ease of access to sections, and, of course, the content. I do NOT like a few things. The stories I read cannot be removed, I cannot set certain sections I will never care about to disappear, stories are repeated in different sections. I would like to give this app 5 stars, but not yet.
  • Missing newest articles

    By Newton man
    The biggest problem with the app is that the newest articles do not appear on it, so you have to check out the website as well. NY Times app does this so why can't Wash Po? Plus it does not offer as nice a format for scanning through multiple articles. Either one has to look at them only 2 at a time, or a small print list of articles. Again, they should check out how much better NY Times iPad app does at this function. But once you are on the relevant article, the Wash Po app visuals are great.

    Nice layout and some interesting human interest stories. Yet the strong left leaning negativity wears on the reader. Give an inch- you don't need to support the administration but goodness give an inch! The NYT should be a cautionary tale.
  • Easiest news app

    By Nybirdman
    Love it
  • Clean, easy to use and reliable

    By ChristoClintone
    Had it for a month and has been reliable in function and content
  • Meh

    By Lyndabee
    I don't like how little of the Washington Post the app actually gives me access to. I have to go to my browser and then the newspaper's website in order to access most of the content I pay for. The app feels like a waste of time. Except for he comics.
  • Top-notch
