The Washington Post Classic Reviews
Excellent app with few problems.
Very useful for a former DC Metro Area resident. I can keep up with my former home. Good coverage of general news and opinion but weak on background material. Strong bias in some reporting that would be better called opinions than reporting.
Often provides 'fake news' and 'alternative facts' that turn out to be real, not fake. Think about 'Watergate' and 'Police Shootings' and other 'real' news. This makes other claims of news believable.
Good selection of comics with two weeks of each comic.
Still worth subscribing to for another year. This is the only paid news subscription I have.
This app is very user friendly. Provides access to the thorough news WP is recognized for. Totally agree with previous reviews on this.
A solid app from a solid, reliable newspaper
I like the layout and facility of use. I appreciate the caliber of coverage and easy access to latest news.
Finally, this app works quite well. The newer version of this app is miserable, but this classic app is pretty fabulous. It always works. It's easy to use. I still prefer the desktop version usually from Safari, but when I'm in a hurry, this is the best news app there is.
Also, kudos to WP for pushing real news to the forefront of the American mind and keeping it there. They continue to investigate and uncover the truth. In this current climate, the WP and her journalists are true American heroes, IMO. Keep up the good fight!
In an aside, can I just say how delighted I am daily that there's a whole slew of comics to enjoy daily. It makes this forty-something very happy.
Old Review (one star)
The Washington Post app refuses to update. Is stuck on "installing." Finally, I decided to try deleting it and downloading again. Except it refuses to delete.
Please fix this. It's incredibly annoying.
Needed now more than ever...
By Iggy Bach
The Washington Post maintains its position as the symbol of an American free press. Its journalists and their reporting keep a watchdog stance over those individuals and entities that would use our democracy to their own harmful ends. First paper I read every day.
Not Fake News!

I do not watch tv or listen to the radio I get my news online and only trust Washington Post. Best news app online as of yet. Up to date and I can trust the news they deliver to my iPhone.
