The Washington Post Reviews


Social media Sharing  Uttzey  4 star

I love WAPO I’d never. Never been much of a newspaper reader but when my partner got a digital subscription I started paying more attention to the paper. I’m a total fan! Only complaint right now is that I can no longer share directly from the app to Facebook. I can still accomplish it by opening it up in a session of Safari and then sharing manually from there.


Fixed the zooming pics, but still a tunneled navigation  Zoltani  1 star

Still terrible. Finally the zooming, nausea inducing pics are gone, but navigation is still one story at a time. There is a categories menu, but that's it. No simple headlines to scan. I have to scroll through huge images for all the stories? I've looked and looked to see if there's a setting to turn off this scroll feature. I'm astounded that there is not a more conventional formatting option. This app is just terrible. I've looked at the WP Classic app and it's better. This whole having 3 different apps thing is just dumb. Way overthinking this, folks. I am the founder of an online business and am in no way unaccustomed to apps and am not a Luddite. This app is terrible.


WaPo is a must read.  Newsman2  5 star

Such a beautiful news app  LushLitch  5 star, most informative paper now, pleasant blended video and visual experiences!


Easy to use app  KelticBill  5 star

This is a much better way to read the WP than clicking through from the email, loads cleanly & well.


Love the paper, hate the app  Donohkat  1 star

I prefer the web page view, which looks like a newspaper and makes it easy to see all the headlines and determine what I want to read. And it's slow.


Great journalism  MaximusRex^3  5 star

I really appreciate the journalism of WAPO so I'm already happy with the content. The app seems decent enough. So thumbs up


Great paper  JCGnDVR  5 star

Undoubtedly one of the best in the country.

Thankful for the Washington Post!  Tiggio  5 star

More than ever, good journalism with integrity is critical to our society.


Could be better  Bnhpgp  2 star

Why does it never go to the comics when I hit comics across the top? It always goes to some other article and I have to either scroll from there or keep hitting comics. Seems like an easy fix. It also crashes ALL the time , right in the middle of reading articles it bounces out. Is this just me? I am using an iPad.


Can't log in  Yenrav  1 star

Updated app won't recognize my account. Perhaps WaPo could consider testing prior to releasing future updates.


Getting vertigo / not any more. Thx!  ZuluCongo55  5 star

Great paper, amongst the best! Only gripe about the app is the articles scroll by in 3D causing dizziness. Had to delete it and access website directly. Fix the format & I'll re-use & give 5 stars. Edit: new version has fixed this. Thank you WaPo!


Love ..  Lenslady62  5 star

Really enjoy reading WSJ. Thank you! Update, keeping informed on the go, worth it!


Washington Post  Handybut  2 star

Content is excellent. But technically pretty dysfunction. Too often locks up. Too often does not pull up e-mail to send an article link. Very frustrating.


Unable to access  HerthaR  1 star

What happened. Working great until today Cannot access. Wants me to sign in but will not take either login name or password. Canceled account then reordered it and same problem. Please fix this or tell me what to do so I can give five star review. I love The Washington Post.


Best Source for News on the Go  SharonRose  5 star

The Washington Post app gives me exactly what I want to know with the details I need to know. It presents the news clearly and let's me scan for what's important to me. I like the updates with the latest news.


Easy  JustAngieJ  4 star
