Customer Reviews

A cross word

The Washington Post app for iPad news reporting qualities are excellent, made the more so by the feature making it possible to view the printed version every day. As a former longtime resident of D.C., I welcomed access to this format. However, I'd agreed to pay the monthly subscription fee because I was also to have access to the daily crossword puzzle. This worked for a short time but no longer. Now, after presenting the two advertising commercials one is compelled to watch before the puzzle is to emerge, the app crashes. This is not an occasional problem but a constant one.

Crashes and Freezes

I try to read the Washington Post online every morning. But when opening it, it freezes while updating. Then once it starts to work, if I open an article, it crashes. I have even tried opening it, then walking away figuring I would let it update. But when I return it has usually crashed, meaning it has not updated its content.
As soon as this subscription expires, I am going to try a different paper.

Auto Download sporadic

I like the app and think they've started to improve its reliability. I do NOT like the unreliable auto download function as I am now reduced to looking hopefully at my iPad in the morning to see the new edition icon, which is frequently not there. As a result, I waste my time opening the app and downloading the new edition in my precious time before work. Post, you can do better.
