Great Update!!
Just downloaded the update. Dramatic improvement. It's now in newsstand, which I like. Reading is more organized, and I love that you can download the print edition exactly how it appears in print, ads and all. Great to get the comics as well. Good job!

App won't load offline Paper. Worthless if not connected
The app will not show the downloaded version of the paper. It crashes immediately. Update required.

Icon disappears
With this new version, my icon has disappeared, so I can only launch the app through the App Store.

Problems
The new app does not allow search. When in print edition mode, it flips back to the Newstand when you click on a story, so you have to start over, and over, and over. Didn't anyone use this on an iPad before release? David H

I dig it...
Now lets just hope the pay wall that's coming this summer is reasonable. I'd also hope that the ads in the "app" are either removed or considered when the subscription prices are created. I don't like them but I'll deal with them if it keeps my cost down.

Buggy, but good, and where is the Fold??
This app is definitely an improvement over the previous version, and takes a lot of the good aesthetic elements of the New York Times app, but is version 1.0 and definitely has its share of bugs. I wish that every time I swiped to the next page of an article that it wouldn't fresh the ad, and that the app just gets faster overall. Pictures are also a problem, as you can't make them full screen and they aren't very high quality - not as high as the website has them. One thing - where is the fold?? The fold is one of my favorite things about the Washington Post and it needs to be in is app! I think the fold is better than the New York Times' Timescast, but the fold isn't as easily accessible. It either needs to be in this app or its own app. Overall, however, much better than the previous version.
