  • One of the best newspaper app experiences

    By Becky Wolsk
    Thank you for keeping this classic version of the WP app available, so digital subscribers and print subscribers who enjoy reading the paper on their devices can quickly access what they want to read. This interface is intuitive and user-friendly.
  • Excellent writing and insight!

    By NWA Hogfan
    I started subscribing about a month ago and thoroughly enjoy reading the Post. I read it everyday, regardless of where I am. The articles deal with the most current issues and are always well written with proper research. I look at the Post app several times daily, because the app updates with current events. I’m very satisfied with my subscription and the cost is also reasonable, particularly for the product.

  • App freezes

    App freezes on iPad mini 3. Closed all background apps, turned off unnecessary services, confirmed more than 10GB free space, and rebooted device. Still freezes while reading articles.
  • Imagine

    By mrs. baby
    My last moments on earth I would love to hear Lennon’s IMAGINE. No hunger, no greed, no selfishness and no Trump. It is bittersweet to realize this world could be all that if we wanted it enough. No poisoned ocean, no burning Middle East. No drowning islands in the South Seas. No gangs, only beloved children with a good life in front of them. No drugs because anxiety and fear would be absent. All it would take is the will of the people. We would feed the hungry, clothe the naked and house the homeless. We could make the Beatitudes come true and I am not religious. We could create heaven right here, instead of 17 armed conflicts of our involvement. My last moments will be hoping for this. I’ll say thank you to John Lennon when I see him.
  • Need to Imrove interoperability

    By ICaribe
    When you find an article via email, Twitter, Facebook, or the web and click the link to a WaPo article, it does not open in the app; it opens on the web. Instead subscribers have to copy the article name and search for it in the app to read the content. The lack of a simple option to continue reading content on the app is a deterrent for reading WaPo articles and becoming a subscriber.
  • App freezes often

    By kk14c
    The app will freeze often and requires closing and restarting.
  • A national service

    Accurate, fair, reporting and thoughtful content are democracies lifeblood
  • Old News

    By mjguffey
    It would be nice if my digital subscription to the Post would deliver a fresh copy once a day. Instead, the “latest news” lags by a day or more. Today, January 11, I’m still reading Friday’s headlines. Up your game, Post.
