How to make the app worse

The Washington Post for iPad has been a boon to us, as we travel and cannot get newspaper delivery. I used to love doing the crossword puzzle, that is, until the digital edition decided to "make it better" at the beginning of 2015. The replacement crashed the app for the first few months, then when it did work, after forcing you to watch an ad for 15 seconds, no longer worked with the bluetooth keyboard and was clunky, now it crashes the app again, both in the prior update and this one. I have communicated with the tech team directly but I just give crossword puzzle fun anymore. Shame on you W.Post, for $15 a month I should get more. Do you pay someone for this development work?

Another useless update

I rarely review apps, but WaPo just keeps getting worse, so I felt compelled. Maybe someone in the tech dept should take a look at the NYT, which just keeps getting better. Everything from the Google ads at the bottom to the use of an entire screen for just one article, and not even the headline article at that. It looks more like grocery store checkout yellow journalism that the trusted paper I used to love. Not even getting it free with my local paper makes it worthwhile. Too bad, really.

Videos Buggy

I only watch the videos less than half the time because it almost always takes 2 or 3 attempts before the video will play. The ads before the videos play perfectly, however, every time. So, for every video I choose to watch I know I have to watch the ad 2 or 3 times. So, I really have to want to watch the video before subjecting myself to that.
