    By Devi Shakti
    With the insanity that is being spewed on T.V. Networks, it is imperative that I hear the FACTS and the WP has stepped up to the plate and delivers. Thank you to your reporters who work 7 days a week 18 hours a day to bring some sanity into these chaotic days, months and years. I am grateful for your work.
  • Intrusive video ads

    By diamantine
    I’m a subscriber but yet I’m subjected to intrusive autoplaying video adverts when reading a story. You already make money from me each month, do you really need to exploit your subscribers for microcents?
  • Problems with WP online

    By BB McKay
    I love reading the Post but there are problems in accessibility when there is no internet connection. The paper seems to try to refresh and being unable to do so, then loses all previous content. This was a problem a few years ago which was then corrected, but it has resumed. That means that when I’m traveling with no connection on my iPad, I am able to read the NYT, whose content remains from the first connection, but I’ve lost the Post. Another problem is the availability of certain sections listed on the front page. For example, I love the Health and Science section and the Weekend section as well as Outlook and many others. But there’s no easy way to look at the side bar or in the top banner to find those sections. Consequently, unless I look at the virtual print copy, which only goes back 2 weeks, I miss stories in those sections. Why not have a list of all the sections of the paper? Maybe I’m missing something and these sections are identified, and if so, I would very much appreciate guidance. Thank you very much. Barbara Sitton
  • App does not allow users to read comments

    By trinisaurus
    I wish I could give less than 1 star. The Comments that users provide on the articles are just as insightful as the articles themselves. In the past I could get the WP comments from FB - that is no longer available. I have both NYT and WP subscriptions - NYT is far superior. WP needs to do better.
  • Washington Post News Provides Excellent Analysis

    By BloomDL
    About a month ago, I started a subscription to the Washington Post, and have been continually delighted with the news coverage and in-depth analysis. This is precisely the National news I’ve been seeking, without the bias of the WSJ. The WP content has helped me navigate through the turmoil in government. It took a little time to acclimate to the Post’s content, since it lacks the “fluff” of Google News, but the WP articles are certainly engaging on their own. Thus, I feel better informed about National news than before, and think my subscription has been worth the price. The WP app is also easy to use, without advertisements.
  • Disappointed

    By TerpFan17
    I now live in Florida, but I'm still a DC sports fan and an avid crossword puzzle fan. My on-line subscription satisfies those wants. I think it’s terrible that the post is so anti Trump and unbalanced to the left. I stopped reading that biased and fake news.
  • Extremely Convenient & Well Informative

    By BigBalonieManS
    I adore the design if this app. Inspires me and moves me to read more and more articles everyday. The dark mode makes it even more amazing, and with how the app is set up, seems like a main part of my life from day 1.
  • New update has a bug

    By Straightlake
    With the latest update (June 11), I cannot activate the crossword puzzles. No problem in the past, but nothing works on the Crossword page today.
  • Video ads

    By epii
    Nothing like sitting in a quiet waiting room full of people reading an article when a loud ad inexplicably starts playing.
