Customer Reviews

Still my favorite way to read the news

I love reading the news laid out like the print edition without the newsprint ink and wasted paper. This app is great! Thank you Washington Post for continuing to present it this way!

One of the best things about a good newspaper is the editorial layout of the printed page. That's missing from just about every news app except this one. Flipping through the news on the typical app has all the pleasure of scanning a parts catalog, it's joyless effort. The traditional printed newspaper's daily layout represents a creative curation of the news and events that is stripped away when shoehorned into an app. Leafing through the pages of the paper our attention is caught by things we would miss buried in some cubbyhole within an app. In this "print" view of the Post we get that back!

Thank you for a great app and great newspaper! We can now enjoy the marvelous content of the Post as the editors intended.

Printed Paper in Digital Form

I love this app. The image of the page is clear and crisp even when you zoom in. At the bottom of each article that continues on another page is a link to jump to that page, so you don't have to manually swipe to that page. As a person who loves the design of a newspaper, the layout and presentation of the information, I am grateful to be able to read the paper on this app on the days I do not receive a printed addition. Although it can not replace the texture of a newspaper, this app is a must have for anyone that wants to read a newspaper as it is meant to be read.

Memory Hog

Used the app for a 2-3 weeks and found navigation to be lacking and slightly awkward. I notice that the available memory on my iPad Air 2 was plummeting and discovered the Washing Post app accounted for over 1.9 GB (not a typo). I hadn't saved any articles and as far as I know past issues are not stored on the device. What accounts for the app's size? Those issues aside, content was at times unenlightening, un-engaging or annoying. The presidential elections are well over. Donald Trump is president. Recounts won't change that. His choice of appointments will be thoroughly vetted. So quit your pouting and go out and get some news! At the end of the day, the Washington Post just doesn't compare with the New York Times so why should I settle for less?
