Customer Reviews

Update causes login problems...the App update process is primitive and unfriendly

Every time the app is updated, download results in the newspaper requires fresh log on in order to activate. This is a royal pain. Why can’t WAPPO fix this so that a regular paying customer who has read the paper a day ago and with a updated version of the same app has to start logging in all over again? When I tried to log in and had problems, I called the WAPO number that sent me (a very long time Washington DC resident of 4 decades) to a handler in the Philippines who asked me for all my email addresses and wanted to check those against a “data base”. This is not only weird, but also a ploy to obtain email addresses from unwary customers. I asked to register a formal complain and the person at the other end resisted (operator number 8448, “John” is the so-called supervisor who wanted all my data including my full name and all email addresses I use, but would not even give me his last name). Unethical business practice by WAPO!

This is good app. Quit whining.

This is one of the best apps for newspaper/mags. I give it four stars because I am sure there can be more improvements. I add a half star because the WP continues to improve the app. Then I add another 1/2 to take the score to a full 5 because of those who complain because they have a slow computer, or no band width or don't like the Post reporting or just like to whine.

I particularly like that I can search by columnist or feature. My high preference is the print edition. I don't come here for breaking news during the day because I don't think that is their shtick. It may be.

Criminy, this is the Internet with its foibles and temperament. We are grading only the app. Let's giv'em credit, a high five!

When I travel I look for higher speed times/places to download the paper so I'll have it when I have time to read. Switching from paper to digital is very difficult. Paper is comfortable. Slowly I am making the transition thanks to the WP.

Needs a back button and faster downloads

I love being able to read the print layout, and the app works very well. Two issues:

1. After following a page link in the print layout, we need a quick way to go back to the original page. Easy fix: make the "continued from page A1" text a link that brings us back to the originating page. Other obvious solution: add a 'back' button in the top left, and put the 'sections' link in the top middle.

2. Opening the app in the morning it takes over half a minute to even show the cover images of the sections. It should be possible to at least feed four jpegs in a tenth of a second while we wait for the section download to complete

And a last request: please offer a setting to show all photos in full color in the print layout. I would enjoy a splash of color, and I assume the original images are available in color.

Other than that, great app!
