  • Nice app, but could use a “find on page” feature.

    By Guyho
    One of the great advantages of reading eDocs is the ability to search and find words within a doc. As I read an article and come across reference to a quote by last name only (because the person was introduced earlier in the article) I want to quickly search that name as a reminder of who the person is. I don’t see that feature in this app. I can only do it via a browser. :(
  • Too curated; Lacks customization

    By P38027391
    I feel constrained by the app's curation of articles. Sometimes you want an option to read the full newspaper content.
  • Great news - but do NOT rely on breaking news alerts

    I really enjoy the Post and their reporting. However, do NOT rely on breaking news alerts. I have the app set to just alert me to breaking stories, but for example yesterday’s only alert was “Child actors growing up in the age of social media”. No thank you. I’ve disabled alerts and will rely on another source.
  • Split screen interface is abominable

    By John888889
    Whoever had the idea for this interface was not thinking. By displaying whole stories half screen, the font is small, they are hard to read, and you can’t see the range of stories available without swiping and swiping. Ugh!
  • Worst designed app I’ve ever seen...

    By redsoxallstar
    You would think after being purchased by Amazon this app would look half decent.. this app is easily the worst designed iPad app I have ever seen. Terrible. These designers should be fired and this app needs to be taken down and redone.
  • I love WP

    By Goddess40
    I love this newspaper. I’m the articles are informative without being too partisan. It is true journalism at its core. I love the app which allows me quick access to news stories. However, I would love access to the comments section of the papers articles as it gives me an idea of what the masses are thinking. Could we get that on the app?
  • Terrible App Support

    By Top beauty user
    The links for the Contact Us support section don't work so if you have a problem with the app you are sol.
  • Thank you

    By Fishnjeff
    Investigative journalism more important now than ever. Thank, really!! Thank you.
  • Great reporting, terrible app

    By Zoltani
    Why make me scroll through huge image after huge image? This is a terrible way to browse news stories. Give me headlines organized by sections.
  • Horrible

    By Penben1
    Going back to the old app, this one is all bells and whistles. Bright colors, hard to navigate news.
