  • Best of the best

    Exceptional writing, editing visuals and site design. A news source you have to read every day if you’re going to keep up.
  • The Post is the Most

    By Lambrezza
    Reliable, informative, honest, in depth coverage of current events to counter those who would destroy our democracy.
  • Uber ad degrades quality

    By Asb21keb
    I’m downgrading my review of the Washington post app for as long as the hair trigger App Store auto-launch ad for Uber is present. Does the Washington Post get paid thousands of times every day, when somebody accidentally touches that ad and triggers the iPhone App Store to open ?! The ad is white at the top, so it’s easy to touch with your thumb as you’re looking at the top the page. Nasty!
  • Great reporting!

    Great reporting!
  • Love the WaPo, and App.

    By jnmyr
    The Washington Post is wonderful. And the app is great. Cutting edge, good reporting... especially in the age of corrupt and lying government officials. Keep a light on these people, WaPo. Never be deterred.

    I read NYT daily, and added WP subscription yesterday. Today, I read about the hero in WP, and found her bio nowhere else.
  • No Comments, Poor Support for Subscribers

    By DanMcDermott
    This app doesn’t show comments on the articles. So if you want to see the comments you click on the share to/open with button and click Chrome. But wait, that doesn’t allow you to open in Chrome. You can only bookmark or add it to a reading list. Why can’t you simply open it in Chrome, you ask? I was curious too! So I called their support phone number since there is no option for developer support or feedback and the “developer website” simply links to the newspaper homepage. At the 800 number I got a very nice lady overseas who did not understand my question. I asked for a supervisor who also didn’t understand and said I would have to “search for the article in a mobile browser.” So I called the 202 number and explained that I was a paying subscriber in Virginia and could I please speak to a DC/Virginia based person to ask a question and (now) make a complaint. I got a recording and left a voicemail. Instead of a call I got an email asking me to write what I wanted. I called the 202 back and explained to a nice lady in DC what happened and she said to email back requesting a call. I did so. As for writing what my problem is, I decided to go ahead and write that right here. Under a single star.
  • Terrible

    By tyu000
    The app is terrible. It knows how to bill me but won’t let me log on and then says it is sending my password but doesn’t. I’m cancelling my paid subscription ASAP.
  • Fast and Direct

    By Tedinhawaii
    This app was simple to install and gave easy and beautiful access to the Wash. Post.
  • Written by idiots for idiots.

    By Geauxtigers87
    The articles will often repeat details three or even four times... Also, many of the details are utterly unimportant. Best to stick with the Financial Times. The Post is more like a sensationalized tabloid than respectable journalism.
