Two steps forward, one step back
Some new features are a big plus, like access to the full print version and the ability to subscribe to blogs and columns. Performance isn't great, though, and changes to navigation and amount/organization if top level content seem unnecessary and an overall minus. I'm not a fan of chaining the app to the Newsstand but understand this is the way things are going for all publications. This is really an iOS problem - they need to let you create top level shortcuts for thing inside apps like Newsstand and Podcasts. If you only subscribe to one or two of these the additional navigation isn't worth it.

Needs Quick Improvement
Version 2.0 is a big step backward but I won't repeat what others have said. WashPo should do two things ASAP: 1. allow subscribers to print version to get full access now & with no ads. 2. Allow subscribers to download all sections at once (not speaking of print edition). This latter was most important part of previous version of the app. Not having it now is so frustrating.

Where's the content?
Blah. Underwhelmed. So much less content, I probably won't bother opening it any more. WP had become a favorite app and favorite source of news and and analysis. Ruined a good thing.

What happened?
I'm amenable to change but I can't download this new app; it will only open in the Apps Store, and the old one disappeared from my iPad. I also agree that it's difficult to navigate. Please, bring back the other version.

Horrible
This ver is dumbed down to being almost worthless. Where is the Tech or science sections? A step backwards and blatantly inferior to the NYT. Recommend either go back to the previous ver. No longer worth even reading.
