The new post app
Read several one star reviews just after I had deleted the old post app ( it had been obtained using my prior email address) and regretted updating. But I couldn't go back, felt I was stuck with the new Post app, and proceeded to download and install it. Then I found I wasn't stuck with it -- I was blessed with it. It is fantastic. Loaded quickly and choices were available intuitively and virtually instantly. I went to the sports section and read the excellent article on the caps in any size print I wanted then went to an article on Tiger. Then I clicked on "Print edition" and I felt I had died and gone to heaven. The entire paper loaded in just a few seconds in beautiful color and high definition with several pages arrayed side by side available for immediate up close reading and a section index for you to make further instantaneous selections. I even found I could quickly read the TV guide as well as ads and obituaries. Well enough of my ramblings. I've got to get back to get back to my paper. And to those who gave the app poor reviews you must have done something wrong or have bad networks or minimum systems. Alligator Jack

New Washington Post Apps
Sorry, but having used the previous app for a long time, I am very disappointed with the big update recently introduced. The old one wasn't any great shakes, and I do like the new quick link to the actual paper layout view, but this one is just too unstable and otherwise lacking. I have always felt that there is not enough content on each page...too much unused white space. This update seems to me to be a step back in terms of efficient page utilization. As a reference, The Wall Street Journal app pages contain a lot of content on each and the top and bottom of the page sections are not taken up ( read: cluttered) with a lot of redundant icons and options, etc. I think you've got a lot more work to do guys before I would ever consider this a necessary enough news source to justify any expense for the privilege of reading it.

Not entirely accessible to visually impaired
it was great to see the Washington Post move to Newsstand, but this implementation does not provide access to visually impaired readers using VoiceOver. Individual articles can be read but when trying to swipe from page to pago, no go. There are other glitches I hope the developers address to make this a slam dunk great app.

Horrific User Experience
Nice approach, terrible landing. They must be trying to hard because this new app simply does not work very well. When I tap articles or a photo gallery, the app stalls while it's trying to load. The previous WaPo app was much better because it was more responsive, faster, and seamlessly integrated. Sometimes change is not for the good, especially when they can't get it right. And to think that the publisher plans to start charging online readers for this experience. Good luck!

Poor upgrade
I was a faithful subscriber + we also receive the print edition at home. We have been receiving the paper for over 25 years. that said, This version is awful. It uses too much memory and takes too long to load. I finally had to delete it from my iPad 2 as it totally locked up. I thought there was something wrong with the install but after reading these other reviews all are having the same issues. Please go back.... And rework this app!

not good
This app seems to try to make the Post "current" but, for me, all I want is a newspaper...not another USA Today, would love to subscribe but they will have to improve the content. More news - less fluff.
