Please fix!
I cannot even open the app, as it crashes at startup. Everytime.

Too mixed
I don't hate the app as many others seem to. Mine does NOT crash in either print version or regular. I can do the crossword puzzle but it isn't user friendly. My issue is simply that half the articles require you to thumb left to right to go on and some require that you thumb down from top to bottom to get to page 2! There is no rhyme or reason to which ones go vertically and which go horizontally. Seems a very basic thing is ignored here. Fix it.

Good app gone bad
The WP app used to be terrific. I could download whole sections in seconds and then take my iPad out and read offline. Since the app moved to Apple's "newsstand" I need to download articles individually, which can take 10-15 minutes. It's a horrible experience. Why are people always trying to fix things that aren't broken?

Would LOVE to read it but...
It crashes all the time. Time to read another newspaper. SAD!

Awful headlines font
First Impression: not something I want to pay to use. Headline font choice is awful. I'm straining to make out the words quickly. Leads included under headlines are rarely complete sentences or thoughts. How is that helpful to judging whether to read the story? Story layout seems poorly organized and not dense enough. Only seeing four stories on a screen as large as the iPad feels silly and wastes my time flipping to new pages. Main screen ad is given too much real estate. Navigation is confusing. Sections button makes sense, but then the toolbar at the bottom leads you into a whole series of menus at seem like nonsense, go multiple layers dip and never return to the full page navigation of the articles. Second star is for not crashing in the first ten minutes of use. Better than where some media companies started.

Frequent crashes. They want people to pay for this?
At least 50% of the time, this app crashes or freezes at startup. When it does work, page scrolling and manipulation is not reliable. The print view feature, which I find useful, is also beset with problems at times. I would not ever consider paying (paywall) for a subscription until these fundamental problems are resolved.
