Love the app
The print edition in the app is an awesome feature.

Needs work
After updating app, the icon has disappeared from the desktop but is apparently hiding somewhere in memory. To access the app, I must first go to the Apple store and open it from there. I think I liked the old app better.

Terrible
This is now among the worst newspaper apps. It's more difficult to navigate than the old app and thus makes it harder to locate particular items. The replica of the newspaper is clunky because you can't easily scan the text of an article without enlarging it first. There also seems to be something wrong with the contrast between the color of the paper and the blackness of the print. Really, they need to start over. No one is going to want to pay for this.

No icon
Can't tell if it's good or not. I can no longer access the app. App store says its installed but no way to access it.

Fantastic functionality, much improved app
The Post has seamlessly integrated its mobile experience with its print edition, in a much-improved (and overdue) version of its previously staid app. Launched and operated flawlessly and intuitively for me right outta the gate. I rarely review apps when I'm repeating what others have said, but in reading the latest complaints about this one, I felt compelled to note I haven't found problems, just improvements. That said, I'd really like to see more sections broken out in its contents list, and more options on headline font sizes--at the smallest text font option (12 pt), the page still looks too large to me. Hopefully the future tweaks will add these and more surprises that will keep me reading this app as one of my top go-to news sources even when it's no longer free.

It's all good
Great concept, reading the Post both in digital and print format... getting the overall look and feel of the day, seeing stock tables, comics, story layout, etc. as they appear in print, but still having the digital format suited to reading on the iPad screen. For once, I enjoyed the morning news hunt on the Post more than on that other paper to the north.
