App Reviews

  • A Forgetful App

    By TimothyJohn1085
    I subscribe to both The NY Times and the Washington Post. It’s interesting to compare how the two papers use mobile apps to present their content. Each has its advantages, but I find that the Washington Post Classic app has a couple of significant deficiencies. On the plus side, the Washington Post is a more visually appealing and less cluttered presentation compared to the NY Times. But there are two behaviors that I find limit the usefulness of the Washington Post Classic app. First is the fact that it does not give any indication of stories that have already been read. The NY Times app, for example, dims to a fainter gray the headline text of stories that have been opened. Second, and most infuriating, is that the Washington Post Classic app seems incapable of remembering the reader’s position within the app. Leave the app to read a text message? When you return to the Washington Post app you’ll be returned to the story you were reading, but once leaving that you’re back at the top of the story list and forced to scroll and scroll to re-find where you were. This often happens even when you haven’t left the app at all and simply close a story. (Note that I’m using a current generation iPad Pro.)
  • Video ads

    By Distant reader
    For the last week, I have been plagued with a video ad for a personnel service that begins talking shortly after I start reading an article. I can't find any way to turn it off and it is irritating and intrusive. Am getting to the point of cancelling my subscription if it doesn't stop. Update, it is now broadcasting this same talking ad every single time I try to read an article. I am regretfully canceling my subscription. I will check back in a couple months to see if this has been fixed, but for now, can't stand it. Another update. I did cancel, but like the post so much, I regretted it and renewed the next day. Now I am canceling again. Every single time I tap on an article to read it, a voice blares, “For the past 25 years, PNP personnel services...” I did write to the help desk, and got back an email that did not resolve the problem. Nobody else has complained about this, which leaves me wondering why I have been so blessed with the attentions of PNP personnel services. I’ve tried easy solutions, but no setting addresses it. If anybody has any ideas, I’d be happy to try them. I love the Post, but have come to hate PNP personnel services more.
  • 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.
  • Great news source, lousy app

    By MiniMims8
    No question, WaPo is my go-to news source for All Things DC. It's profoundly satisfying to read well researched, trustworthy journalism in a day of claimed witch hunts and fake news. So why does such a fine media outlet have such a crappy app? The navigation is awkward at best. Ads are often intrusive, disrupting reading. We subscribers get only partial versions of the print or browser-ready WaPo with the apps. Whole sections are missing, to say nothing of less popular articles. And there are no comments. WaPo comments are worth reading if only because some DC insider anonymously posts a news nugget from time to time. Many are thought provoking or witty or both. WaPo's app developers have been aware of these issues with the app for a long time-I mean years. The app developers always promise fixes but seldom do apps change. It's jarring that journalism of WaPo's quality is delivered with the faulty, user hostile classic black or blue app. It's outrageous that the app is unleashed in an unsuspecting world by WaPo publisher Jeff Bezos, the guy who practically invented seamless digital usability with his little ecommerce venture. Fix the problems, man. Deliver apps as good as the WaPo news reporting.
  • An appreciation for the courageous

    By Jack Jouett
    Our Founding Father’s created a government that was is supposedly designed with “Checks and Balances.” What they did not plan on was that moment when one of those branches lacks the integrity or courage to executed their solemn oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Sadly, that is where we find ourselves at this moment. The WP and others in MSM - particularly print media - have courageously stepped in to fill the breech to bravely defend the Rule of Law, and the concept of Human Decency our forefathers valued so much. So far, their reward - to come under an attack that seems to get stronger everyday. At some point history will show us who were the heroes and who were the villains of this moment in our journey. No doubt - America’s Free Press will be among those heroes. My hope is that ALL of America comes to that realization soon. I’m not sure we will ever truly appreciate the great patriotic service these journalist have performed for our nation.
  • A Society Ripped Apart by Full Frontal Nudiy

    By sammy woko
    “We?” I’m not your “we,” Ruth. You say what Barr said was unforgivable. I can forgive her and have some sympathy to boot. She said something dumb, without forethought, she hasn’t killed anyone. Now, deservedly, she’s been humiliated, raked over the coals in front of our nation. I think she got hers. As for Dee, she used an ‘offensive’ word. In America that’s okay. The Donald used the exact same word and got elected President. So we should humiliate and destroy her after the Trump precedent was set and half the nation was okay with it? Who do you think you are? You need to calm down and focus. The so-called “Outrage Machine’ has landed right in your lap and you are obviously ready to fuel it up so you can use your power to jump on the ‘Enemy’ because what they’ve done, as you’ve righteously judged, is unforgivable. “We” have all decided, as you have so passionately argued in your special column, that Dee like Barr, should burn too. Bring the family!
  • Check the Post every morning., noon and night

    By Halimaryland
    I love the convenience of this App even though I have news aggregators for my favorite topics. On this app, the Washington Post stands alone because, for me, it is special. I trust it. Sometimes I want to skip the rest and just see what The Post has to say about something. Sometimes, I receive articles before the stories come out in print and that’s fun for me. But I also enjoy searching through historical archive stories that evolved over time. I frequently compare WAPO’s perspective with that of papers and topical magazines in the U.S. and abroad. This app makes it easier. The Post verifies it’s breaking stories. So reading the paper via the app gives me deep insight into both fools gold and fact-based stories that arise in other media throughout the day, The Washington Post app gives me many entertaining and informative articles to easily share with my friends on social media. I also confidently reference articles at the Post when I write online stories on topics that the general public might find interesting.. In short, I appreciate WAPO’s in-depth, longitudinal stories, award-winning research and unique, fact-checked perspective. I like having it with me all day long on my phone.
  • Solid App

    By Rkj0053
    Very stable, aesthetics are pleasing (especially compared to the other WaPo app), and the alerts are relevant. WaPo itself is among the great papers of our time following the Bezos purchase, and it's the only outlet I personally pay for a subscription to access. My only suggestion would be to incorporate the comment section into the app. Right now, I can only read and write comments using my phone's web browser. At a minimum, the app could include a link at the end of each article that would open the article's comments in Safari or whatever default browser you may have. Still, the ideal would be to have the comment section within the app itself to make for a more seamless experience. Keep it up WaPo! We appreciate your dogged reporting in this age of "alternative facts" and outright misinformation.
  • Journalism is almost happening

    By ellenthered
    I give the New York Times 4 stars. I wish I could give them five but in the past two decades or so they have backed away from genuine journalism and participated instead in “bothsideism” which is not journalism. It is reporting truth on one side and lies and propaganda on the other. No ethical journalist would provide a platform for propaganda and lies without labeling it propaganda and lies. Sadly, the NYT believes reporting both sides and giving equal weight and validity to both sides equals responsible journalism. It does not. The fourth estates sole purpose is to inform with facts and truth - not to print lies. This leads down the road to tyranny. Sadly the New York Times has not yet grasped the historical fact that when tyranny comes one of the first institutions terminated are the press. Pay attention NYT - your “both sides” reporting may be the cause of your demise.
  • Love WAPO

    By Bayhaze
    Love all your reliable confirmed legitimate news coverage. Appreciate the emails updates. Thank you Press! If it wasn’t for you we would be headed for a dictatorship no doubt. Thank God we have the Press, thank the Press! I think at this point in American history we should have a national holiday entitled National Free Press Day! Seriously. Thank you all you reporters for doing what you do Day in and day out, our great nation depends on you MORE THAN EVER! I get most of my news online and not Facebook or Twitter. I will never have a Facebook account because I will never want my political actions based on money served up by parties opposed to true democratic principles. That being said once again I congratulate you for all you are doing for America. Thank you!
