A Dud
The app no longer works since the last update.

What the heck???
Second day that the app crashes on startup repeatedly-so much for reading the Post yet again-- time to pull it together-- you are working hard at creating your own demise --- if the paper is unavailable even the brilliant Jeff Bezos can't dig you out of that!!

Fix the crashing
Another paid subscriber here with no ability to access the app since the latest update. I see the night lit Washington Monument, and then the app closes. Restarting the app didn't fix this, nor did restarting my Ipad. I finally had to delete and reinstall the app, then log in again. Not acceptable.

don't you test these "updates" before you inflict them on us, your PAYING customers? back to the drawing board, fellows -- this doesn't open! ** I think I wrote this the last time you "improved" the paper. Actually it finally turned out to be an improvement -- and now, you've screwed up again. If you want to charge us, please make it simpler. I've received the WP for years -- I don't know my username and/or password. Why does it take all morning to figure out what the heck I need to do to get the paper back?

Crashes on startup
As usual, when the Post issues an update, it doesn't work. Deserves no stars!

Mr. Bezos, please help ASAP
I have been trying to be patient over the prior versions of this iPad app, but I think v 2.2.0 (i.e. we want 2 push our TV thing) may be straw that breaks this camel's back on my monthly $ubscription. It seems clear that WaPo's app developers do not understand the customer experience. To wit, for me it is a DAILY part of my life, just as reading, writing, and arguing has been since my days on the hilltop (G'Town). The tech bells & whistles are there to enable this daily ritual, they are not an end in themselves (see "innovation" vs. "technology"). And when a daily ritual is interrupted, the outcomes usually are not good. Anywho, hope you get it together; too much good content to keep hiding. But frankly at this point, since even my Facebook iPad app (which I had read horror stories about) is performing far more reliably, I see no reason why not to just follow WaPo on Twitter and then FB articles I want later? Am I missing something? Cheers.
