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

    Well made for mobile devices efficient not confusing customization

    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.

    I love it, one of the best apps for reading newspaper ever.

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

    I noticed this app used 2.5gb of data in the last month of which <150mb was used in the foreground and the rest background data. What is it possibly downloading that uses this much data?? News stories are just text and images right?

    Sluggish and unresponsive after update. Deleting app till it improves.

    Samsung Galaxy S4. "Gathering your news" consistently takes a long, long time (and it is NOT my connection that is slow.)

    Uses a lot of mobile data even when I don't use it and tell it not to update over mobile.

    Text "vibrates" uncontrollably. Using Galaxy 4 phone with plenty of memory.

    Used this app once and forgot to uninstall. It used up over 2 gigs in just 3 weeks! All in the background. Not cool. Definitely getting rid of it.

    I was shocked when I checked data usage on my Nexus 7 tablet. The Washington Post app used more than any other app--1.91 GB in a month! I often use the tablet through a metered hotspot on my cell phone. Now I understand why I've been having data overages. The articles are often good (though biased leftward), and I appreciate that it is free. But way too much data.
