The Washington Post iPad app

The Washington Post for iPad has been updated and revamped this week. The 2.0.0 update seems almost more like a brand new app release. Even The Washington Post itself describes the app update in those sort of terms:

The Washington Post has unveiled its expanded flagship news app for iPad, now available on the App Store. The app provides a dynamic news experience with all Post content, blogs and multimedia updated throughout the day; a replica of the print newspaper with a 14-day archive and over 40 comic strips; real-time social content and more.

The first big change in this update is that The Washington Post is now a Newsstand app. It’s a free app and currently has no subscription options.It offers complimentary access for everyone through ‘Summer 2013’, and appears to have monthly sponsors in addition to being ad-supported.

The app has also had a full design makeover, and is said to add a number of new features that have been most requested by readers. Here are some of those new features noted in the update change list:

* Our complete printed newspaper in an interactive display
* All Washington Post blogs
* 40+ full-color comics and much more!

I’ve never been a big reader of The Washington Post, but I did install the app last night and spend a good amount of time with it. The UI seems a lot nicer to use than the last time I looked at it and the new content looks good. It seems like an impressive new iPad version of this blue-chip title.

Have we got many Washington Post readers here? If so, what are your thoughts on the new version?
