  • Wonderful Newspaper for the Digital Era

    By Yoshi's Fan
    I enjoy the Washington Post’s in-depth well written news stories each day. For me, these stories represent the first draft of history, especially in the US and global dimensions. I also treasure the insightful opinion writers. Finally ease of digital use is outstanding for the iPhone, iPad and computer user.
  • Reputable news at my fingertips

    By Maria P-D
    It has been a long time since I had a subscription to a print newspaper. I finally decided that I needed to stay informed, as well as support quality journalism, the beacon of democracy. I bought a digital subscription to the WP and am delighted to have breaking news on my iPhone wherever I happen to be. I can also read the news on my laptop or on my Kindle. I don’t have to make time to sit in front of a newspaper, I can read whenever I have a few minutes. I am delighted with the writing and the quality of reporting. I am now better informed and not so susceptible to what I see on FB. All I can say to The WP is keep up the good work.
  • Feel Right There!

    I may be in the Midwest, but with thorough, competent, journalistic coverage, I stay right in the middle of the world.
  • Extraordinary

    By twr505
    Love the insight and perspectives. Also source to glean news and implications of breaking reports
  • Feedback option

    By Mdhippie
    It would be nice to provide feedback directly to Post writers. Much of the content is though provoking and getting subscribers views might be enlightening.
  • App has become unstable, freezing stories, not allowing changes of pages etc. Please fix.

    By horn harbor
    See notes above, the app for Ipad has become practically useless. Have deleted and reinstalled, rebooted, no difference. Very disappointed.
  • So-so user experience

    By Marknitz
    Content is fine. However, it’s really annoying that the app doesn’t clearly and visually identify articles that I’ve already read. If it does try to do this already, then try again because it’s not visually clear. Put the done button back to the top. It’s not any easier to reach in lower left. I find it less easier to reach. Amazingly, the inability to visually flag articles as read is still an issue and horrificly negative user experience. Still waiting for the app to track for me what I’ve read. This can’t be that hard.
  • Glitchy

    Keeps freezing but on my iPad mini.
  • Love the paper

    By mojo 87
    Great news. No fake news here trump
  • Essentially a fine experience in the troubled times

    By Geewhizicist
    I consider WAPO indispensable to our democracy and greatly appreciate both the paper’s content as well as the app that allows me to receive breaking news updates throughout the day. The only improvement I would urge is to include point/counterpoint columns.
