Don't Update!
The old app was wonderful and I would have paid for continued use of that version. This version has a crappy font, no depth, and is clearly only free for a limited time as it says it is free for limited time. It also removes the shortcut which can be easily remedied by going to Washington posts website in safari and "adding to home screen" I will need to get my news some other way, but I am very sad that my "go to" news app has taken a step back. This version does have PDF of the actual paper but I still prefer the old app.

Lost in Login Limbo
The app looked pretty good yesterday. The print editin was nice,but it does seem like there is a little less direct content. I had it open today where I needed to login to a wifi access point. Now, when I try to go to a section, all I can see is that login page, but I am not there any more. I can get to other content, and even search for stuff, but I cannot bring up any section front page, even after a full shutdown of the iPad.

Why oh why??
I dont know what made them reformat the interface, but there are 60% fewer stories on the pages and the audio and video links are buggy and not ff/rw -able (see SCOTUS audio from DOMA case)

Not excellent
No depth compared to the old version. Where is George Will and the others. Bring back the older version. This new version is terrible. I probably will not be using this app. I tried using the app again and deleted it. Content is disappointing.

Definitely don't like the new version
I've been a die-hard WP reader for years, but I'm sorry to say I strongly dislike the new version of the iPad app. Too little content, too much scrolling around, just a poorer user experience all around. The previous version was much better. Please bring it back.
