Frequent crashes. They want people to pay for this?
At least 50% of the time, this app crashes or freezes at startup. When it does work, page scrolling and manipulation is not reliable. The print view feature, which I find useful, is also beset with problems at times. I would not ever consider paying (paywall) for a subscription until these fundamental problems are resolved.

Crashes in print edition
It's almost constant after downloading the print edition. I defy you to launch it because its impossible. Hope it continues to be "complimentary" as I would never pay for this crash happy app.

Buggy
Frequently the print edition will crash or not download day's edition. I will not be subscribing unless this is fixed.

Crashes. New App inferior to old App.
Loved the old App. New app you cannot navigate, crashes all the time, reinforces perception that old print media cannot innovate. Not sure who makes these decisions but apple, google or Facebook would never let this go out the door - Don Graham should know that. Has been acting this way for a month. Agile development should not allow this.

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
