The content is magnificent - the presentation not so. Each article is dominated by a photo and takes up valuable real estate on my smart phone screen. I would rather have an app that gives a front page summary view (from which I then choose which to read) than have to scroll through article by article. I know the hamburger menu seeks to create that option, but it's just not as effective.
As a paid subscriber I'd love to see the following : 1) local news section, I see world but what if I just want local 2) hide content. If I'm not interested in a story, let me hide it 3) when on an article let me move those buttons to the left. I'm right handed and these buttons are in the way when I need to scroll
The interface distracts from the content. It is too oppressive. There is a large gray overlay at the top and buttons on the lower right that all need to disappear when in an emersive mode. The content is great. The delivery method needs work. Update: the app has devolved. It still doesn't support landscape mode on Android. The previous issues persist.
The worst interface of any news app out there. You can't scroll through the stories and have to flip through one by one, only one per page. I like the Washington Post but may delete the app due to the poor functionality.
What a waste of space. Distracting and unnecessary image zooms while scrolling stories. But the worst are the three action buttons covering most of every article. All this while an ever-present banner at the top has only a back arrow. Why are the three action buttons not on the top banner?
I like the app. The articles are right there to scroll through and available to read when I touch the screen. I don't like the the share, bookmark, etc. icons on the right. The icons obscure half the reading area, they aren't transparent, they are very a large, time is spent constantly moving the page up to bypass the icons. It makes a very small reading window. That disrupts a person's reading, it isn't smooth. It's aggravating.
