Where's the icon?
I like a newspaper to look like the newspaper, so I like this version. Simple and clean. If I want more, I can go to the website, but I don't have to slog through multiple steps just to read the paper, except that I do as there is no icon. The only way I can get to the paper is to go back to the App Store and open the app there. Fix, please! Amended, review. It's now in my newsstand icon, but I can't take it out. Now, I'm more irritated. I don't need micromanagement on where my apps live!

Big Improvement!
All those people rating it poorly because they can't find the icon just need to look in Newsstand. It's right there where it makes the most sense. Great job WAPO. Love it.

Greatly diminished app
Access to the print edition is fine, though slow. But the main app is greatly inferior to the previous version (and to the NY Times app), so much so that I regret loading the upgrade: many fewer articles in each section and absurdly large type. Articles that would have been displayed in the old app (many things on the opinion page for example) are no longer present and can be accessed only by downloading the print version. Unlike some, I prefer a version specifically formatted for the iPad. I would have been quite willing to pay for the old version, but not for this one.

Love the app
The print edition in the app is an awesome feature.

Needs work
After updating app, the icon has disappeared from the desktop but is apparently hiding somewhere in memory. To access the app, I must first go to the Apple store and open it from there. I think I liked the old app better.

Terrible
This is now among the worst newspaper apps. It's more difficult to navigate than the old app and thus makes it harder to locate particular items. The replica of the newspaper is clunky because you can't easily scan the text of an article without enlarging it first. There also seems to be something wrong with the contrast between the color of the paper and the blackness of the print. Really, they need to start over. No one is going to want to pay for this.
