Love this app! It keeps me informed on what's happening in our gov't along with around the world. I can carry on a conversation and know that I have the most up to date information on politics, current events, and the newest in innovations. It's hard to stop reading once I get started. I am so glad that I got my subscription and plan on keeping it!
Thank you for making your app work well on tablets. The mobile panel-scrolling takes getting used to. The 1- or 2-up view on tablet is cleaner. While you're on bug fixes, PLEASE hide the three lower-right circles (share, bookmark, and comment). Reading the article is more important than immediate access to sharing or saving it. Keep the barrier to entry low. Why do they slide away at the end of the article, when I might want to share, bookmark, or comment then? 20180106: reinstalled; thank you for changing the UI.
I love the Washington Post; my subscription is via my Amazon Prime account. My only complaint is that unless I'm using the app (for instance, if I see an article elsewhere I'd like to read), I keep hitting the paywall. When directed to sign into my account, I'm then directed to sign in through my Amazon account. When I do that, I just get a plain white page. My workaround is to jot down the name of the article, then go back into the app to read it by doing a search. I guess this is some bug between WP and Amazon. Tried to get it straightened out with WP customer service, but their advice to sign in through my Amazon account is what results in getting the white page. Other than that, I'm glad to have access to the content; just wish it was a little easier across platforms to access my account.
The app works generally works well, but for some reason it does not support relevant links being opened in the app rather than in a browser. For example, if I am in google news and click a link to a WaPo article, it opens in Chrome and then won't let me read it without signing in. The New York Times app, however, works perfectly - going straight to the story in the app every time. The developers should really fix this.
I'd give it 5 stars if it didn't cut you off every other day saying you're out of free articles. I understand that all content can't be free but then put only free articles in the free app. Or let us know where the cutoff lies...is it 'X' articles per day, week, or month? But I love the reporting. Keep up the pressure on a president that the majority did not want!
I like the layout of the app better than the web page. I'm a visual person and I really love the graphic design and associated photography. I also like the way clicking on the article opens it up below. It's easy and almost non-committal if I decide to move to the next article mid-way, no time lost.
