New app is a mess...
You can't download for offline reading and I have the same login issues everyone else does. If I had an Internet connection, I wouldn't need a iPad. I grew up in DC and enjoy reading the Post, but this app is getting deleted. Buh bye WP - see you when you get it together.

Adds
Even with a paid subscription the adds remain. Other major newspapers remove the add bar at the bottom once you click on an article, not the Washington Post...the adds never go away. Save your money and just access the content via your browser. App not a value yet.

Doesn't Work
The new version doesn't function at all. I understand the need to make this a subscription but as a long time subscriber, I'm very disappointed that the new version does not work. It seems short sighted to roll it out on a long holiday weekend when there is no support. I expect better service.

Latest update prohibits signing in
When I try to sign in using my Post email address and password to gain full access as a print subscriber I always get the message "Request timed out".

Update problems!!!!! App is a DISASTER
This app was fine before, but with the subscription "update" (!) where they ask for money, things are a mess. When I try to link my PAID DELIVERY SUBSCRIPTION, I get an error message saying Connection Failed. LAME LAME LAME! 😡😡😡 Fix this pronto! Pathetic!!! 7/5: Was NOT happy to learn that the Post uses call centers in the Philippines!!! Completely useless and unhelpful. Decided to CANCEL my Post home delivery. Too bloody expensive anyway. The Post has really screwed this up. Lots of subscribers are going to bail out owing to the app mess. It is impossible to get any help from the Post.

A buggy mess
The previous version of this app worked beautifully for me. The update on 7/4 is horrible. I tried entering my account information and got a message that my connection was terminated. Then, I tried to download today's paper 5 times with no luck. The Post should be ashamed of launching this buggy mess on a holiday weekend with no support on hand. This needs to be fixed pronto!!
