  • DO NOT force a customer to click to access after update

    By jjssjjsso
    The recent update requires me to hit a button or click on “Continue” in order to read your articles. Why? We know we updated, and we are smart enough to seek out the “How To” if any new features will assist us or change our habits. So, DO NOT force us into “help” which does not help. In the alternative, show a standard Apple circle over the icon at the menu bar, similar to the “you have unread text messages” so we are prompted there when we run into a new path. We are trained, by you, by experts, by best security practices, to avoid clicking on unfamiliar and unwanted links and prompts. You completely undermine the security message when you then make it a routine practice to force a customer to make an unwanted choice in order to proceed to the product for which I entered into my subscription. That said, my personal circumstances aggravate the issue. My habit is to read your stories as I wake up and have my toast and coffee. I am not at my peak then. Frankly, I am only marginally functional. Any “help” or updated information I might glean from this unanticipated input is lost. Help a reader out. Implement a feature which flags but does not nag or force me to engage with the new process. Thanks. John.

  • Money for a Dog Park

    What planet are the Council and Mayor on? We need money to repair schools — heat, air, mold, etc. for decent learning environments. Until that is done let the dog owners figure out where their pooches play. Children come first!!!!!
  • Buggy

    By H2Odavid
    Many graphics do not show up. App keeps asking you to resign in, but fields do not show up. WP says they will share your info to others, no way to cancel. Tech support in India is clueless.

    Not sure what else I need to say, you don’t need a Trump sycophant on staff, dump him.
  • No Ad Free Option

    I have to pay for the subscription and I still get ads. I would prefer an ad free option.

  • Comments; style section, facebook interface, search feature

    By Dcbridge
    I love the Post but hate the app. 1. Comments don’t show in app. No instructions on how to find comments 2. Why not have a style section and the option to view by current sections of newspaper? I don’t like an app that chooses what I might want to read. I would like an option to sort by section and scroll through like I’m reading the print version 3. Facebook interface seems odd. I click on an article in Facebook and it acts like I’m not a paid subscriber. I have to sign in again and then search AGAIN for the article 4. Sometimes searching for a article is ridiculously complicated. For example, searching for All Souls Church yields me an article about Joe Biden??? It doesn’t seem to know how to put articles with all the words in the same order first, and it doesn’t realize that a DC newspaper should reference articles about local news first. A search for Bancroft Elementary school gives me an article about a school in Alabama first rather than the school in DC 5. Why no automatic link to the weather? Isn’t that like one of the most searched items?
  • Too Many Ads

    By Exasperatd
    I prefer to read the WP online because there are less ads. I pay for news. They should pay me for the ads.
  • App is getting worse

    By sirosenberg
    They’ve taken out sections from the app (most read, business). If your phone rotates while you read, the app now loses your place and puts you back to the headline (didn’t before). And now the ads will cut off your audio from another app, so you can’t read wapo while you listen to something else.
