Crossword UI is Awkward and Amateurish, When it works!
Crossword puzzle is a nice addition, but UI is awkward and amateurish, and does not save work on partially complete puzzles. I would say that it looks like a high school project, except that would be an insult to high school students who would have done much better. Also, why does this only offer access to puzzle through print edition? It worked for a while, but now does not load at all. Otherwise, it is a nice way to read the newspaper, particularly with access to the full print edition. Probably worth more than 2 stars which I will gladly change WHEN YOU FIX AND IMPROVE THE CROSSWORD PUZZLE.

Garbage
The Washington Post is a liberal-biased piece of garbage. Not worth it. Lies to Americans.

Pretty Lame
I started using the app over one year ago. That version of the application was decent. Much preferred to the current incarnation. This current version is pretty crummy. You ought to be able to search or access old columnist pieces and old pieces, restaurant reviews, etc. The latest release includes the ability to do the crossword. I was excited when I read of the new feature. I'm completely disappointed. It is the reason I'm finally writing this review. The crossword application is COMPLETELY WORTHLESS. The usability is atrocious. You the clues and the puzzle scrolling are synchronized in a way that forces you to constantly scroll the list and the puzzle on every clue once you get into the bottom half of the puzzle. Completely unusable. Can't play it. Novel to access the print edition ... but the app needs work. Check out other newspaper and magazine apps. Hire a mobile applications user interface expert to help with the design. This current version is AWFUL.
