Typical WaPo
Upgrade is WaPo for 5 year olds; missing many sections and most articles within sections that are there. To get those you have to download the day's edition, which takes so long I have given up every time. I am a daily print subscriber so have no need to download the daily print edition when I just want to catch up on the latest news in the evening. Crap for any serious reader; I am just going to delete the app.

First to worst
This version is a big disappointment.

Less user friendly - looks better but feels like a downgrade
The original app was very well done. Intuitive and simple. This feels over designed and made to look nice at the expense of the overall user experience. The only reason it gets two stars is because now it has the comics. Lol.

Big step backwards
I absolutely hate the new version of the Washington Post iPad app. a) It's slow and crashes frequently b) Sections like Food that were in the old app are now missing. c) It's a preference but I hate the horizontal flip navigation. I miss the up-down scroll from the old version. d) They took out any means to easily give feedback. In the old version, I could email the digital editor right from the app. I'm now left writing a crappy review. The worst thing is the idea that a picture of a print newspaper is valuable to an online reader. Is this 1997 again? Why don't they just put a PDF of the paper up on their website each day? I an only assume that they want to tell their paper advertisers that all of the app users are seeing their ads. More backwards digital thinking from the print industry. Not sure I would be proud of this effort if I were part of the Post's digital/mobile team.

Awful update
Went from must read to want to delete. Way to ruin an almost perfect app. No wonder you are struggling with thought processes like this new and unimproved app.
