The original print edition app worked well as did the original web version. Now that the two have been combined, you have a single app that doesn’t do either the print or web versions well. App is slow and clunky. You have accomplished one thing, the quality of the app to matches the quality of the content. Looking forward to the day that this one trick pony dies in 4-1/2 years.
I read the print version on my iPad. Although initially I had trouble after loading the new app, yesterday it behaved fairly well so I have revised my review. Thanks for your interest in the meantime. I’ll give it a few more days and then check in again.
Now that you eliminated my print version app, Boooo. I don’t like digging to the bottom of the stack to read the comics. May be can show me how to load my favorite comics to the ‘My Post’ feature. Always looking for improvements !!!!
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. Just got this in response to my review, sending me back to the same support black hole that prompted my one star rating. Great journalism, crummy crummy support team. App Store Dear Rebecca, The Washington Post responded to your review of Washington Post The Washington Post "Hi! We are terribly sorry for the trouble. Please reach out to us by selecting "Contact us" within the app's Settings so that we can provide you with the needed support. Thanks!" Do
My wife and I love the post—the entire range of the human experience is laid out for us, beautifully written and well edited. It’s been a way of life for us. Stories are always provocative and heart rending. I peruse the editorials first, then go to style to see what’s interesting in books and video. My wife scans obituaries before disappearing into the daily crossword puzzle. My bias is obvious: 50 years ago I delivered the Washington Post in the morning, and the Star in the evening!
Most of your “news” articles contain liberal opinions. Just the facts, please. Opinions on op-ed pages.
In the last few days a window pops up masquerading as a help window with ads. It takes up half the screen and I can’t make it go away. Having ads with the news is one thing. Covering the news with an ad window that won’t go away makes the app unusable.
Took awhile for my old eyes to find print edition but I did and the app is great.
The Post has recently discontinued the old print edition app for this new one, which is more difficult to use. Rather than opening to the print edition you have to select it each time you use it. When you touch an article it opens up in a new web page rather than to the article you selected. If you have expanded an article by zooming you can not turn to the next page until you have reduced it to its smallest size. And most annoying of all, you are not allowed to sign in without acknowledging that you agree to be tracked and have your information used and shared. Shame on you Washington Post. No wonder people are giving up their subscriptions.
Update: The print edition started working again the next day. I wish there was an option to automatically download the Print Edition automatically. Currently it takes a while to download it after I open the app. ———————————- This morning the print edition stopped working. It as working fine before that. The news is not loading.
