Bug fixes and behind-the-scenes improvements, including fixes for layout issues on section fronts.
Bring this version to the iPhone!!
Now that the iPhone screens are bigger, having the print edition on them makes so much more sense. Put the iPhone version in the newsstand too, it makes zero sense to have the same newspaper in two completely different places on my iOS devices.
Very Slow but Well Written
I'm a dedicated NY Times reader and their app works perfectly 97% of the time. Having now subscribed to the Post's app for a few weeks, I realize how spoiled I am with the NY Times's app. The Post app simply takes too long to load and update. The writing and coverage is great (and I love having access to the comics) but the speed is terrible. Come on Post (and Bezos), you can do better than this!
Get the NY Times instead...
This app is simply dreadful. It makes the Post's below average website look amazing in comparison, which I never thought could be possible. The section pages refresh at odd times, or, just as commonly, refuse to refresh and provides only the previous day's stories.
The previous version was pretty bad too,but ridiculously better than this current fiasco. Thanks WaPo, I have to use my desk top to read your paper now.
