They ruined this app
Just doesn't work anymore. I get nothing but blank pages.

This app is why the WaPo is dying
A storied news organization that can't even rise to the level of the integrated, video, audio, and written content of the WSJ. This is horrible. It loads... Then... It doesn't. Or, it takes a long time. Post readers nation wide would gladly pay for a subscription if it had value. Sadly, this new app redesign clearly signifies further decline.

Try it, you'll like it!
At first glance, I wasn't that impressed. What got me excited is when I clicked the download button for the print edition. Now, I get to see the print edition, and when I see an article I'd like to read, I just click on it and I'm taken to the web version of the article. No need to scroll around and zoom in on the PDF version. No crappy ads in my face, either. Well done!

THE WORST, but the cherry blossoms are nice
My goodness, WHO "redesigned" this app? The first WaPo for iPad was sleek, offered lots of content, updated seamlessly, and I would have GLADLY paid a monthly subscription. This 'new' version offers significantly less content, is spotty when it updates, and, even worse, has a ton of glitches. For instance, I opened up my app while at the columbus circle train station, which has paid WiFi. When I clicked on an article, it instead brought me to the "pay $4.95 to have WiFi for an hour at this train station" prompt. I turned off my WiFi so that it would make the prompt disappear. But it never disappeared. That was 2 weeks ago. Now, every time I open up my app and try to click on an article, THAT SAME PROMPT APPEARS EVEN WHEN I AM AT HOME - IT WILL NOT LET ME VIEW THE ARTICLE. There were similar glitches prior to this one, too lengthy to discuss in this forum. But I'd already deleted and reinstalled the app THREE times when similar freezes occurred, so this was the last straw. At least I have the still-slick iPhone app, and at least the pic of the cherry blossoms are nice. Terribly disappointed, especially for a world class journalism institution. sadly deleting this iPad app once and for all.

Maybe the worst ever
I read the IPad Post daily and about to stop. This 'upgrade' is terrible in every respect including its full of bugs - you can click on an article on it keeps trying to give you a different article from the prior day. If you haven't upgraded DON't. I just read the NY Times now.
