not worth the space on anyone's device
I loved the old Post app, but then, as has happened with much of the newsprint edition, they made changes ad wrecked a great thing. This app is sad. It carries so little content that it's a joke. Use the apps for the New York Times or even USA today. Each carries far more news and features.

Not up to par
App is not anywhere near as good as previous version. Problems updating to latest version of the paper. Does not scroll well with print edition. I do love the idea of the print edition...just make it work. Would not pay for this version of the paper.

Broken!
I haven't been able to download the print edition since Sunday June 2. What has happened to the app? During May it worked well, able to get it page by page the entire edition each day. Please fix it.

Great reporting, buggy app
Love WP reporters and columnists. Five stars for content but even after several months of the new interface, there are bugs to be worked out including one almost literally huge one -- why on is this taking up 1.8 GB on my iPad??

Crashes
Why does the app crash and take me to the home screen every time I try to open the print edition? There have been multiple releases and it still isn't fixed. Get it fixed Post.

No longer a newspaper app
I used to really like this app. Not so much since the upgrade. The app doesn't work in airplane mode. Prior to the upgrade, I could download the Post newspaper to the ipad before departing my home. Like a newspaper, I'd the have the Post with me during travel, on an airplane, at conferences, etc where wifi or cellular was not available. The new app is essentially a web page interface that requires Internet connectivity to work, the stories do not download to the device for travel. The NY Times is the only paper that I can download via their app and have with me when not connected to the Internet. Very disappointed because I do enjoy reading the Post.
