There is also a handy setting for adjusting the text size of the articles which is a terrific feature as well.
The Washington Post is universal and although it is available for free on the App Store, there are limitations on the number of free stories available each month. For unlimited access you can purchase a subscription currently for $9.99 monthly with the first month free.
