  • Still sluggish

    By ***who???!
    The app has gone from zero stars to 3, and now to 4 with the print edition. Loading speed has improved but still issues with page turning and going to the articles unintentionally.
  • Excellent app.

    By Springfield Spartan
    Very intuitive. Easy to use.
  • A great way to read the Post, with one annoying flaw.

    By EvenhandedOne
    I'm very satisfied with the class Washington Post app, very disappointed that the paper no longer downloads to my IPad automatically. Somewhere along the way, that feature was dropped or stopped working. Sometimes the download, which does start when the app is opened, is slow and inconvenient. It's a real shame that the automatic download is no longer offered. It was a much-loved feature.
  • Love the print ....But

    By Cody720
    You can not get your local County news. I have no idea why? They have our address zip code, how hard can it be?
  • Love it - the WAPO is available wherever I am

    I have subscribed to the Post for several decades and the Print Edition is very familiar, like an old friend. The Print Edition app is a very good recreation of the version delivered in my driveway. It works and has some advantages over the hard copy, like copying an article or link to OneNote or email. I also like the e-version app, but it's not my old friend. I noticed some reviewers are high on their 12" iPads. I bet that would work very well but my 9" iPad works fine. You don't need the larger Pro model that also costs more.
  • I still like to keep up with Washington, D.C.

    By M. Hayden
    I moved away from the metro Washington, D.C. Area two years ago. I don't subscribe to a hometown paper where I live. I miss the Washington Post, so being able to read the print version is great!
  • Very Nice

    By Adam G23456
    Well done app.
  • Pain

    By tugpup
    I bought an account. I use the app, I click on a story and have to give my credentials again! What a pain. Better off using Safari
  • Too many pesky bugs

    By KC 621
    Usually the app works well - except when it doesn't. This morning, for example it would only open yesterday's paper. Finally 6 hours later, I could access the correct edition. Often the crossword won't load, so I'm stuck going to the LA Times site, and at times, it is difficult opening a specific article. Other than that, the content is stellar, reporting is top notch - what one would expect from the Post
  • Thorough, but unstable

    By Retired in Columbia
    The Washington Post app is nice because it provides the option for the newspaper in its entirety. On my older iPad, it crashes often and is slow to load.
