Mr. Bezos, please help ASAP
I have been trying to be patient over the prior versions of this iPad app, but I think v 2.2.0 (i.e. we want 2 push our TV thing) may be straw that breaks this camel's back on my monthly $ubscription. It seems clear that WaPo's app developers do not understand the customer experience. To wit, for me it is a DAILY part of my life, just as reading, writing, and arguing has been since my days on the hilltop (G'Town). The tech bells & whistles are there to enable this daily ritual, they are not an end in themselves (see "innovation" vs. "technology"). And when a daily ritual is interrupted, the outcomes usually are not good. Anywho, hope you get it together; too much good content to keep hiding. But frankly at this point, since even my Facebook iPad app (which I had read horror stories about) is performing far more reliably, I see no reason why not to just follow WaPo on Twitter and then FB articles I want later? Am I missing something? Cheers.

Loyal subscriber but buggy app
The newest version of this app crashes on startup. I wish I had seen others' comments before updating this app. Now I can't read the newspaper that I pay $15/month for a subscription. It's bad enough that the paper is now behind a paywall, but being behind both a paywall and a broken app is unacceptable.

Latest update crashes
I'm in the same situation as the others who have commented, I'm paying my $15/mo. but since the latest update the app won't even open. I'll cancel if it isn't fixed in the the next day or so, not worth the frustration.

The Post, the usual
Often when the Post issues a new release of their app, it stops working altogether. It's as if they don't test it even once. It usually takes them about two weeks before they fix the app. They continue to charge the same subscription rate however. For now do not update nor install this app.
