    Easy to use. No major issues. Big question is how new pay policy will effect using the app. Good companion with NYT app.

    I agree, removing the sliding scale font size option was a totally unnecessary and annoying "improvement".

    This app constantly eats up my mobile data, even though I have configured it not to use mobile data at all. It also uses an insane amount of data compared to other similar news apps, such as the BBC.

    I'm a paying subscriber to the digital edition of the WaPo. Is there a way for me to login and get rid of the adverts? If there is, the app will get 5 stars.

    The articles are so jittery that it makes the app impossible to use.
