Disappointing
While I love the visual layout and finally being able to read the comics, the site is unbearably slow, and information is minimal. Swiping to change pages requires a full screen swipe. After 2 days of use, I am using this app to download the print version of the paper.

Awful update
Went from must read to want to delete. Way to ruin an almost perfect app. No wonder you are struggling with thought processes like this new and unimproved app.

Why
Too limiting. Prefer to access website directly.

Upset with unnecessary format change
The new format is designed to be inefficient. The old format was great: many more stories on a section cover page, down to read more, sideways to go to the next story. The new format is slower to load & inefficient to go through. Charles Krauthammer is your best asset. Michele Singletary is your next best. I'll happily pay a reasonable fee....but only for the old format. I'm in London and so I no longer have a paid subscription. I was looking forward to reading the Post every morning.....now, not so much. It's clear that the people rating this app at 4 or 5 stars probably designed it.

Upgraded and lost my app icon!
The WaPo app was my first place to go every morning and my mainstay for news. But after I upgraded the app as requested earlier this week, it disappeared from my iPad, and I can't get it back. I wouldn't have minded paying for the app or for continuing to receive the content. But now it's gone. To see the app I have to go to the App Store. It's much harder to use and scroll. My connection to the Post has been destroyed. WaPo and it's advertisers have lost many customers with this foolish move.

Horrible update
This went from being my favorite news app on the iPad to my most hated. The old interface was great. New interface is slower, has far less content and is very difficult to swipe between stories. I loved how you could read the first few lines of each story before, now that's gone. The new "print" version is a joke, basically just a glorified PDF viewer. If I wanted the print version, I would get the print version. Also, moving to the Newstand is not a feature, it's an annoyance and makes it less convenient to open the app. What I want (and what I would gladly pay for) is an optimized iPad app that has the same content as the website and print addition, with the up to the minute updates for things like traffic, weather, sports scores etc. that the website offers. I cannot even stand to use this new app for free much less pay for it.
