Customer Reviews

WAPO is great; this app is not

**The original Washington Post Classic app with the black background is far superior.**
I love WAPO and constantly read their articles to stay up to date and informed.

After becoming a WAPO subscriber, I saw that this app was the "bonus" to subscribing that those w/o subscriptions didn't have access to. I mistook that bonus to mean this app would be better than the original, but I was wrong. I almost cancelled my subscription to WAPO for the NYT because the app was so disappointing and didn't seem to have the same quality content that the WAPO Facebook page put out ---> that high quality content can be found on the original WAPO app and although you don't need a subscription to use it, you should still subscribe to the WAPO to support good journalism!

Democracy dies in incompetence

Can’t login, and the “forgot password” reset email doesn’t go through to gmail after several tries. So, I’m going back to not subscribing and just getting the content for free by circumventing the paywall.

Pretty lame when you make an effort to pay money for a good product and that makes the experience worse. Democracy dies in incompetence.

Cancelling is a nightmare

Was not reading as much as I thought I would. No way to easily cancel in the app. Have to call and jump through a lot of hoops to get a person on the phone to cancel the subscription. Then, a month later, they charged me again, so now I have to call and deal with all that again.

I will NEVER re-subscribe.
