While I'm a fan of the Washington Post, the app has major battery drain problems and I constantly have to force stop it. Whenever I have a large battery drop I check Gsam Battery Monitor usage, the WP app is responsible for 45% of my battery drain. I have background updating turned off in the settings and it doesn't make any difference. As much as I like the Post, I'm very tempted to delete the app. Like others have mentioned, I would love to have it stop prompting me to turn on Night Mode, and would like to access comments. Also, I can't find an easy way to access the Capital Weather Gang articles.
I'm logged in, but two seconds after opening any article, a banner pops up at the bottom telling me to sign up or log in. At that point, I can no longer scroll the article. The app is unusable like this.
Why does this app make me login constantly? I hate the other wapo app, but this one insists I have to upgrade - pay more - if I want to use this app. Please fix this.
Disgusting news. Where the honest journalism
seriously? i have to upgrade to the dc version to use this app? pulling this kind of crap is not going to keep my subscription active.
I wanted to add the 5x4 widget to my second tablet screen, but it says constatnly says "Updating Widget" but never populates with articles.
Feature enhancements and bug fixes!
