What a step backwards!
This "update" reduces and dumbs down content. Also, it is much more difficult to use. After installing it, I found the old WP icon on my iPad no longer worked, but there is no new icon either. The only way I can now read the post is to go to the apps store, get my list of purchased apps,find and selectWashingtonPost, then hit the "Open" button!

Not getting better
The previous version of this app was tolerable, at least there was a progress screen indicating download progress. The updated version doesn't have that and worse, it is SLOW in iOS 5.x. It is nice that the full print edition is available (I have not used it yet), but if the purpose of this app is to encourage me to pay for WaPo content it is leading me in the opposite direction. If WaPo believes it is still a peer to the NYT - a stretch! - then the least it could do is offer an efficient app like the NYT.

New version is not very good
Lost my app ikon; new format not an improvement. What problems, features were being fixed or improved? Bad move.

Original version MUCH better!
Difficult to navigate & access all sections. Not worth effort - will subscribe to another news app.

Why did you do this WP?!
What happened?! Washington Post used to be one of my favorite news apps, but now it's terrible! There are far fewer stories, only a small fraction of what's in the paper. And what's with the downloadable print version? So we can scroll through tiny print to find an interesting story? Isn't the purpose of a good app to put all the content right at your fingertips, in a clean, accessible way? That's what the old app did, but the new app has gone light years backward. Bring back the old app WP!

Excellent
Don't understand the complaints. Love the app, love the content, love newsstand. Thanks for making it free until summer!
