Fix This, Please!
The new Washington Post app has a terrible design. The worst feature is the hidden stories. In some sections, there are hidden stories you can access only by sweeping across the headlines to move from one article to the next. They do not show up on the section pages that have boxes with short summaries of the articles. Who would design something like this? To make sure I see everything, I have to swipe through page after page instead of relying on the main displays. I have been a loyal Post reader for years and years, but this is enough to drive me to the NYT!

Fix swiping!
Swiping the articles makes them move inside one screen instead of swiping! I don't use it because of this

Poor design
I liked the app better before the makeover. The New York Times does it right. I pay for the NYT. I won't be paying for the Post as it is now on my iPad.

not worth the space on anyone's device
I loved the old Post app, but then, as has happened with much of the newsprint edition, they made changes ad wrecked a great thing. This app is sad. It carries so little content that it's a joke. Use the apps for the New York Times or even USA today. Each carries far more news and features.

Not up to par
App is not anywhere near as good as previous version. Problems updating to latest version of the paper. Does not scroll well with print edition. I do love the idea of the print edition...just make it work. Would not pay for this version of the paper.

Broken!
I haven't been able to download the print edition since Sunday June 2. What has happened to the app? During May it worked well, able to get it page by page the entire edition each day. Please fix it.
