  • Fake stories from WP BrandStudio undermine excellent app

    By geoelectric
    Would be five stars, except they include sponsored content that’s only slightly distinguished from real content. The only differences are an extremely small text disclaimer that I bet a number of people can’t or don’t read and a slight difference in the borders of the title card. That’s not enough by a long shot. WP BrandStudio undermines the entire experience, and is honestly an execrable way to try to make money. You simply shouldn’t compromise the credibility of your news for $$$, but WP does. I don’t think any newspaper should allow fake content created by rich people and companies to make themselves more money, so minus two stars for compromising their own ethics. I’d happily give them back if they axed BrandStudio content and made ads look like ads. Otherwise it’s easily the best newspaper-related app I’ve used, and the subscription enables usage in Apple News and other ecosystem apps as well. Recommended, just make sure you know who’s informing you.
  • Best Investigation USA Newspaper

    By Wynn5
    Great reporters, always ahead of the rest.
  • Lacks ability to open links from Twitter in the App

    By Oates & Hall
    It would be useful if, while in Twitter, when I click on a link to a story, that I should have the option to open the link in the WaPo App and not be directed to my browser - where I inevitably receive a sign-in/subscribe now message. Please allow this in your next release.
  • Great writing - kinda squirrelly app

    By Dejuna
    I love reading the articles... but ... Sometimes the stories can't scroll down through the articles, sometimes you can zoom in sometimes you can't. Nothing that restarting the app won't fix.
  • Access on i pad & phone

    Not able to get access to my account so going to close The subscription ... To much advertising on my e-mail to join another account With WP when i already have a account .... STOPSTOP YOU ARE FILLING UP MY E-mail with all this advertising ...!
  • Nice interface

    By AvCheu
    While I can't see all the headlines at once unless I click on the listings, I do like swiping to see them all with usually a good image for the article and how it expands once I click on the article. Oh, and the reporting and scoops are great!
  • Like the paper, not the app format

    By Penguin_Hicks
    Not sure why but I find the app version uncomfortable. I much prefer reading the online version.
  • Great newpaper. Stunning flaw in app

    By FollyBeachFun
    It’s impossible to easily and reliably find an op ed or story written by a particular writer. The byline is shown only after actually opening the article. Even searching by the writer’s name is useless because the search brings up more bad results than hits. Great newspaper. Lousy app.
  • Content great. Readability low

    By Reader Grandma
    In a sentimental attempt to recreate the paper experience, this version of the WaPo is laid out in columns and fonts that aren’t readable on a phone or tablet.
