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!

Functional frustration.

The journalism and coverage is very good, but I have been reading the publication on an iPad and an iPhone and find that functions such as page turning and zooming frequently go awry on both platforms. Pages may turn when I intend to zoom in, a section often closes when I mean to turn a page, or the fuller version of an article opens when I’m merely trying to scroll within the print edition. Most frustrating is that often, when I am scrolling within an article, the app interprets intention to scroll as a command to zoom out; thus, I constantly find myself having to resize the text, which is quite annoying and distracting. Isn’t there a way to make these features behave more deliberately?

Overall great app with some room for improvements

I like this app much better than the other two Washington Post apps. I think the app would be even better if the following improvements are made:

- Do not zoom out easily. When I read articles on my iPad, I usually zoom in to show only two columns in portrait mode. However, the app zooms out to show whole page when I tap somewhere or when I come back to the app after using other apps. I wish the app did not automatically zoom out.

- Do not jump to non-print edition of articles easily. I like this app because I like print edition, obviously, but app takes me to non-print edition when I tap text. I wish the link to the non-print edition was embedded only in, e.g., the title of the article.

- Do not a flip page easily. When I zoom in to show only two columns and swipe to show the next two columns, the app sometimes flip the page. I would like to flip a page only when I swipe near the right end of the page.

- Add capability to use dictionary. I sometimes want to use a dictionary while reading articles, so it would be helpful if I could select a word to use a dictionary, like we can in, e.g., the Safari app.
