App Reviews

  • New app is s..t

    By T2792
    I am fully capable of selecting what I need to see as I need. Your 'assistance', in the form of this new app, is only an irritation I do not need.
  • Latest version crashes frequently mid-article

    By elville
    Great content, good if basic app as noted elsewhere, but it crashes more than any other app on my phone since last update. Will hope for improvement next version, I guess.
  • Dynamic and easy to use

    By mrsmcentee
    Thoughtfully designed. Never thought I'd like reading the paper in pixels.
  • Terrible

    By Mwt II
    This app and its single story per screen is so bad it isn't even worth the free subscription I get with Amazon Prime. Make it like the classic app. I certainly won't pay $4 a month when it comes due
  • Much prefer the classic app.

    By Jhgfdfbn
    I find this app really annoying because it gives you the stories it chooses. You have to scroll further to see as many stories as you do in an instant on the classic app and hard to see everything. I don't know why WAPO forces subscribers to use this unpopular app.
  • Horrible

    By Alexandria22310
    I get two columns, not headlines on my ipad. Whereas i love the Post, this is useless. I want to able to read all of the headlines and pick what I want to read in depth. Currently, I get the latest news from Twitter.
  • User friendly design

    By Dazeher in Ohio
    Easy to navigate. Better than nyt in design.
  • Driving Me Nuts!

    By Fizzwing
    I now have BOTH apps..nat'l and classic but whichever one I pull up, I cannot expand an article because a pop up won't let me unless "I try their introductory offer and subscribe". This has gone on for months. I let them know..they say sorry..and it soon reverts back. Love the paper. HATE THE APPS' admin!!!
  • App works fine

    By E_Payne
    The new app works fine on my phone, though I only used the 'classic' for a few days so I never got used to that, so I could be missing what other reviewers have said about the shift. The interface is very readable, and related content is easy to navigate. I have noticed my battery drains faster, which I suppose is to be expected.
  • Not as easy as the website

    By Pam P.
    I downloaded the new app and I find it less easy to use. I end up going to the website instead. The app looks nice and maybe I just need to get used to it.
