Wishing I had The Old WaPo App Back
Ok, the good: You can go directly to blogs or comics to read. The bad: This is such lower quality than the free online app they began with. What the hell happened on the way to the Newstand? The old app was very newspaper-like. Pleasing to view and to read. Endless scrolling (almost) to any story you chose to read. Great graphics, beautiful fonts and wonderful photos. This--er--upgrade, is not very good. Clunky, just a few stories on each page, poorer fonts and photo quality. Much less content. This is the app version, I presume, we will be asked to pay for soon. But seeing this "new" unveil, I feel inclined to change my mind. I would have gladly subscribed to the previous beautiful app. This one, seems much less worth paying for. Too bad.

New app is awful
The new app is very hard to navigate. Multi-column format is harder to reader. Harder to flip between stories. Print edition format is even worse. The original version was perfect. Ironically, I would have paid for the old version (which was free), but won't pay for this new "improved" version (which will soon require a subscription).

Where's the content?
I used to love this app, but the massive loss of content in the update is driving me away.

Washington Post for IPAD
This new version of the app is awful! Please bring back the old app which was great! -easy to get to and easy to navigate. (note-the old version is still available for I-phone but not for I-pad)

Pretty Bad
I enjoy reading the on-line version of the Post on my Ipad, by using my browser. The new App is pretty bad. It's like a dumbed down version. Why the developers think this is an improvement is beyond me.

Not a good update
I updated to this version. Now there is no icon for it on my screen. Do not update to this version. The old one was better.
