    Pushy app

    Reading the daily WaPo is as necessary as coffee in the morning. Especially in these times. I agree that app itself could be improved. It's a little clunky. The content, however, is unmatched.
  • Love the paper, the app not so much

    By CMB from Omaha
    I don't understand why I frequently cannot "find" breaking stories from WaPo Facebook posts on the app. Have to open the web page instead. Prime example: "Inside the Adult Day Care" today. Couldn't find it directly in the app menu/contents nor by searching. Go to the web page, it's featured as a most popular/most read piece. That's kind of pathetic.
  • Bad news

    By Bosearts
    The wapo app is frustrating, tedious and, in my view, crappy. I use the online version of the paper so I can decide what I'm reading and in what order. I don't like the order they put stories and their equal billing with sponsored content (elaborate ads). The app never remembers my log-in.
  • Most bias and kinda crazy

    By App Sucks123
    These people are nuts. There ethics is basically they don't have to tell the truth. Seriously look on the app. The two extremes right and left need to be squashed...and these are liberal nut jobs on hate raid to make only extremist point of views.
  • Glad I subscribe

    I appreciate the rapid issue of new stories. WaPo is generally good about identifying Jeff Bezos ownership when relevant, but I'm surprised to see a dearth of pieces about Rose McGowan, especially as she calls him out. Seems a little off.
  • Only as good as its stability

    Crash. Crash. Crash. Customer support only suggests deleting and re-installing.
  • Good companion to online access

    By Viking Chris
    The app is a good way to check on the news when I'm away from my desk. I have not had any problems loading or reading the content.
  • If you don't read WashPo, YOU'RE MISSING OUT!!

    By JenMo1986
    You need to know what's goin' on (and for dissenters -- even what's SAID is going). Broaden your horizons to new opinions. The Washington Post EDITORIAL (Opinion) Page is a MUST! Give it a try -- you WON'T be disappointed!!
  • Suggestions

    By Edmak
    Coming from a longtime android app user, I would like the cards on the front page to snap to place when scrolling. There is no need to have a continuous scroll since that means you have to click once to stop the scroll momentum and then click again to open the story. Also would like the ability to highlight a word and “Look Up” the definition. This feature is present in the classic version of the Washington Post app but not in this one.
