App organized for advertisers not for readers
From email to WP App staff: I find this app very annoying. There is no ability to prioritize EVERYTHING according to my interests. please provide tab lists to eliminate the need to page through.Where are science and health? Why no easy access to favorite columnists? Print edition is useless without hyperlinks to articles. I do not get print because I do not want the advertising. When NYT put up the pay wall, i stopped reading it. You have built an app for your advertisers, not your readers. There are too many sources of information to bother with your stuff. But I do like the ability to set up favorite cartoons. Too bad you won't let me do that with everything else. I can find your articles easier via Google!

Very poor "improvement"
I don't like the new app. I am fine with a subscription model and like the print edition option - but in really don't like the layout of the non print portal. The print is too large so I can't see enough stories. I don't like the fact that it is now on the news stand. I want the old one back - or the option to return to the old format.

Terrible
New app is horrible. Limited content viewable. Lousy navigation. Revert please.

Was nice. Stopped working.
IPad formatted content stopped downloading after a few days of use. Hmm.

Thank you
Love this app for many reason. Yes, I am news reader but in last few years there not been much to read. This app, I learned so much in four days, and love all photos that just make me say wow at every photos. Thank you WP for making it free, and comfortable app to read. :)

Not much of an improvement
I'll give wapo this, they didn't totally ruin their app in the redesign like Huffington Post, but I'm not impressed. Why can't I scroll down anymore? Politico is like that and it's not a plus. I prefer scrolling over having to go to a whole new page. And I won't be paying for this come summer, why bother when I can just go online with my iPad? Should they start charging even for web access (like the NYTimes) they'll lose me altogether.
