The new version of the app is unusable for me and my husband, who has macular degeneration. The largest print is too small. It is also hard to use if you wish to scan all articles quickly, reading some partially and others in depth as we do. It doesn't hold your place when you are interrupted for a time, or show what you have already read.

The CONTENT is fantastic! This app, and the WaPost "classic" app, both have an annoying issue: when reading a story, as I scroll down to read more, oftentimes the page will go sideways to the next story. The tolerance is very tight, I have to be very careful to go straight down. I really can't think of a time when I would think, "I've read half of this story, but let me see what the next story is." Unnecessary and annoying feature.

It's one of the better newspaper apps I've used. Things can be relatively easily located, clicking on the story you want on a tablet that shows two articles next to each other, for example, brings to a larger print version of that article. This is more intuitive than most also. The menu that drops down from the upper left is well organized and leads you to a list of articles of that topic. It's shocking how many do not. The layout can vary more than one might expect though, between mobile and tablet, for example.
