    Great journalism
  • Love it, 1 suggestion

    By Lisalynnkyn
    Love the post, love this app. It works flawlessly every time. The one thing that would make me love it even more is if you could enable the “speak text“ function on iPhones for selected text. Thank you for this app & the amazing 24/7 journalism. We need you!!!!!!
  • Login broken, app is useless

    By JP yeah, i know JP is taken
    Because I can’t login through the app, it is entirely useless. The WaPo is great and I read it on my laptop, but I can’t login because it takes me to Safari and then fails. Too bad, it seems like a fine app otherwise, but I can’t use it.
  • Needs Fixing

    By RyanLN
    At the moment my app keeps locking me out and telling me I need to update, but when I go to the Apple store there is no update. Hasn’t been more than 16 hours or so but it’s still broken.
  • App doesn't work with Amazon Prime subscription

    By cfuter
    I cannot access the Washington Post with my Amazon Prime account. Customer care at the Post as I'm trying to remedy this is horrendous! They have no answers & keep giving me the run around, not even understanding what I'm telling them. I'd give this a zero if I was able to.
  • Content hard to find

    By NoSoup4U!!
    The number of stories that can be accessed without searching for them is ridiculously low.
  • Help! (No help...)

    By Georgia Colonel
    great app lost its way in recent update of app and/or ios. Please give us back a working black icon and the wonderfully seamless app of before. Update - even more convinced that this is the worst. So sorry to have to whine about a great news source, but this blue app is WP’s version of New Coke. Cancelling subscription until kinks resolved.
  • Simple to use, easy to navigate

    By freddymia
    Ease of use app, updates constantly so that I can use offline if necessary. I use it on WiFi only w/o any data and never have a problem.
  • The Voice of the Beltway

    By Allston-Tollcross
    The Post is a pretty good paper with a tendency toward both-siderism. The interface format of its digital app seems to emphasize this.
  • I subscribe, but can only access through browser

    By jimloganpa
    Two iterations now, I have subscribed to the WP. I can log in fine by web browser. But their apps on both Android and IOS reject my login credentials. Getting ready to cancel again.
