Washington Post Select App Reviews

  • Limited content that includes advertising

    By LB in Chicago
    I pay a subscription to get this paper. But they only show a limited amount of their content. Worse, they have advertisements disguised as articles. They also slip ads into the videos. How giving me the content and charging an extra dollar? I supported this paper but it’s not worth it for this product.
  • iPad layout is just “ok”

    By Jbrisk
    Awkward iPad layout. I much prefer a tabular column on the left with each of those articles shown sequentially on the right, one at a time. Avoid the completely useless over-use of photos like the LA Times setup—theirs is the worst layout I’ve ever seen. AP has an excellent format, so I always start my morning reading there.
  • Overall great at frequent news updates, but...

    By jay.p.paul
    I go to this app for its frequently updated home page with new stories (and admittedly because The Washington Post is somewhat reflective of my own political ideology). However one thing that can drive me crazy is its poor copy editing. Many times there are repeated paragraphs (or sets of sentences) that were likely moved from one spot to another in the article, but then just not deleted from their original position. Words are regularly misspelled due to a typographical error (e.g., yesterday a story on Iran’s strike on a U.S. drone referred to it as a “done”). It reflects poorly on the paper, and they need to put more effort here. I would also prefer some more in-depth stories online.
  • Too liberal and biased to left

    By tim bahrain
    The constant Trump bashing gets old. Just report the news
  • Doesnt work well at all with App Store subscriptions

    By mike #fedup with bad apps
    Two very serious issues: 1. The default basic subscription is arguably less informative than free online sources such as msnbc, cnn and fox. I call it the cripple post. Missing most of the in depth articles and subjectively not worth it 2. neither their select nor regular apps play well with the apple App Store. After purchasing a premium subscription I spent HOURS on the phone with apple and several exchanged tech support Emails try to get their app to A. Recognize or “restore subscription”. When it finally restored it consistently restores back to basic or “cripple post”. So far, replies from post tech support are not helping at all.
  • Hate the app (but the news is FANTASTIC!!!)

    By Fthvcg
    Seriously. What are they thinking about with this app?!?! They must really think we are idiots the way the app presents the news. Read the paper from the web, or via the email alerts. The app blows. Guys. You can do better. Facebook is bad. Don’t aspire to being Facebook.
  • Daily Blood Pressure

    By Kat Ballou 53
    At the very heartbeat of this nation, the WaPo’s journalism monitors the pressures which impact our lives. Brilliant analyses and cogent assessments are the emerging vital signs. Consistently prescient. One can trust these path reports.

    By KirbyHerb
    In these times of polarization and partisanship it is critical to have a trusted news source. I turn to the post everyday for national news stories that are honest, well-researched, and relevant. The Washington Post has the resources to ferret out critical details and the integrity to follow truth over agenda. This is the only national newspaper I subscribe to online. I am pleased to find the post leading the news cycle most of the time. They provide information and insight which keeps me informed. It’s a great value for a small investment.
  • Great news source!
