Old app much better
The new app in newsstand does not allow you to see the entire paper like the old one did. In the old app, for example, you could look at all the sections, in this one the Food section is missing. The old app was much easier to navigate and way faster as well. The feature on the new app that allows download of the print edition would be nice if it weren't so slow. Most od the time I give up on it. All in all, this is a MAJOR step backwards and will accelerate the decline in its readership.

Turn for the worse
It's great having the Post for free, but the new app is far inferior to to old one. The only positive is switching into print mode. But other than that, it's tougher to navigate and read articles. They must be preparing for the pay site launch soon. I would have paid for the full version with the other format, but this is irritating. Why "fix" a good thing? I can read the small fonts so I don't have to click on each article, but it strikes me as just wanting to sell more ads on each page. I actually enjoy a lot of Post writers, but when Marriott gives free WSJ and NYT to their top customers, why bother? I'll find it on a bench somewhere around the city. I gave it two stars, but only because of the switch to print feature. The new app edition is ridiculous. If you just want the quickie, this new version is not for you.

Old one so much better
Go back to the old one. This new app on iPad is BAD. I tried but I will consume other news sites.

Disappointing
The Washington Post used to be one of the better newspapers in the country. The Post clearly is in a death spiral similar to that of news print though out the country. And the app for iPad is one of the least attractive newspaper apps. If this app is an indicator, the iPad app for the Post will not survive when it tries to charge for content this summer.

So far so good, but not so fantastic
This newspaper is easy to read but sometimes it is running late

Awesome update - new issues are auto downloaded!
Ignore the reviews. This is a great update. The app is on the newsstand shelf and many more features than the 1.x version. Looking forward to see what else wapo has in store.
