The Washington Post App Reviews

  • Kinda Facebook-ish, prefer classic

    By Skijor AK
    I'm glad they still offer the classic app. This one seems more limited. Am glad to be supporting real journalism.
  • Although you pay to subscribe you’re still forced to watch ads

    By Scroffle
    Beware! Although you pay a subscription for this app, every time you click a video embedded in a story you are forced to wait through a 30 second ad before you can see the video. Usually it is the same ad over and over. Even though this app works very well, the ads before videos bug the heck out of me.
  • Where’s breaking news?

    By Dirk Niblick
    When I get a notification about breaking news, if I don’t tap it immediately, I can’t find the story anymore. Please fix this.
  • Disappointed

    By smoove0384
    Hate to say this is the publication in my area. Thanks bezos for turning this once great paper into the pile of garbage that it is today. Rather read the Washington Times
  • Cancelling is a nightmare

    By Dknyc425
    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.
  • Fake news

    By Bgallagher88
    Hard to find some credible news from this or any news sites/apps. Too eager to just say what you think people want to hear rather than fact checking.
  • Nearly useless app

    By frustratednewsconsumer
    WaPo is a great news source. This app, on the other hand, is only useful for major stories. And, the functionality - loads slowly, freezes...surely they can do better
  • WAPO app

    By applemcg
    On the android I prefer the Post in a browser to the new app. The app allows only vertical display. This leaves the option buttons annoyingly in the way of the content. Until the end of the article when they mostly hide in the margin. There doesn't seem to be a motion which permits this throughout an article.
  • WAPO is great; this app is not

    By Colden_Frank
    **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

    By dsp206
    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.
