Spotty Performance
In the past several weeks, seemingly since the Post's latest app updates for iPad, performance has been spotty; including overly long.....or interminable.. loading times, and generally clunky shifts from section to section or from article to article. My other electronic daily news is via the WSJ. No hitches or glitches there; suggest the Post do a thorough scrub of its current App performance. Thanks.

Works Well Again!
After updating, the app stopped working. Not seeing another update, and really wanting this app, I deleted and reinstalled, and the print edition works again. Before deleting, i could download latest paper, but it would't render. After reinstalling, no problems. Whew!!!

Can't Get The IPad Version to Work
Have installed / reinstalled this app several times and can't get it to work on IPad 1. It used to work fine - I started having problems a month ago. When you open up the app it never gives you any content - have waited as long as 5 minutes for it to initialize but it doesn't. I also have the version for the IPhone and it works great on that. Very frustrating.

Did you check the crossword before putting it on line?
It doesn't work. It doesn't even come close to working. I'm embarrassed for you and also annoyed. One star is a vast overstatement.

Rave Review
Being an ardent New York Times App user, the WP App is far superior and a pleasure to use. Information is chunked very well, and if I crave News print the paper is rendered beautifully !

Still The Worst App Ever
This is the 3rd review of this app I have written, each after a new update that purports to cure its chronic problems. After the most recent update, this is still a piece of crap. It still crashes after trying to open the print edition. Nothing different. It is remarkable how incompetent the creator of this app must be. I don't know why I keep re-checking this after each update. Train wreck fascination I guess. Unless you enjoy tragi-comedy, avoid this.
