Amazon Fire Customers Get the Washington Post for 6 Months


So you love your Fire tablet? If you happen to be a fan of the Washington Post, you are going to be happy to know that you can get the Post for 6 months without having to sign up for a subscription plan. The Washington Post is in fact launching a tablet app, allowing you to consume its content on your tablet more conveniently. The app will offer the following:


  • “Pinch View”- a new way to browse: Readers can easily swipe through an edition as if they are flipping through the pages of a magazine, getting a bird’s eye view of the entire content offering, along with the ability to simultaneously read the stories.

  • Stunning Visuals: Bold, high-resolution photos and rich, informative graphics throughout each edition.

  • Deeply engaging “Read View”: When reading an article in full, it is intuitive and easy to engage with the immersive “Read View,” where the focus is on the storytelling through text, photography and video.

  • Intuitive Navigation: The easy-to-use navigation helps users seamlessly browse through and between sections, with stories placed in the content categories that the user would expect to find them and headlines that are clear and direct. A simple swipe moves from story to story.

  • Packaged for the Tablet Reader: Created specifically for tablet readers’ sensibility, the app has two distinct editions released at 5:00am and 5:00pm ET

The app will be made available as part of a free over-the-air software update for Fire tablets, including Fire HDX, Fire HD, and Kindle Fire HD. More devices will be supported in 2015.
