The app is a fine idea and decently executed, although the dark theme interacts poorly with some headers. My issue is that saved articles often disappear while I'm reading them, which is how I'll often read them on flights with limited connectivity. I've reached out to the app team about this and they didn't have a solution. I've tried updating, re-installing, restarting, deleting chache. The error persists. Saved articles will generally stay out for 20-30 sec after I start reading them and then disappear without prompt from my saved list and kick me to the next article. It has made the app unusable for me.

Love the content. The inability to open articles linked from other apps is infuriating. In the WaPo app, great presentation. Opening from Twitter, etc.? You get the mobile browser complete with intrusive ads. Also, it's often impossible to find the article in the app if you're looking for it on your own. Just let us open the link in the app!

The Post is one of the most trustworthy news organizations in the world. Reporting is factual, and not based on "alternative" facts (aka lies). the app itself could use improvement in its search engine. It can be difficult at times to find articles that I know exist, even if I search by author for an opinion piece. it is frustrating that I can save articles if I open via the app, but if I navigate to the article from an email ad, I can't. The interface should be the same.
