  • Deleting your app

    By XweAponX
    Al Franken was accused by a supporter of Sean Hannity, due to a convenient photograph somebody gave her. Which could have meant anything. Any rag that calls for his resignation is equating this with Roy Moores various infractions with 14-year-olds, and you instantly lost my support as you have instantly lost credibility
  • Great articles, horrible app

    By aecalder
    Ads pop up constantly, and not even in the app. They open in a separate Safari window, taking you out of the app entirely, and when I attempt to return, guess what? More ads! Trying to read just the headlines of recent articles today I had four ads remove me from the app to view them in my browser plus a funny or die video that popped up three times in a row requiring me to close three windows before I could attempt to read the article I was there for. I love Slate's content, but this app makes it next to impossible to access.
  • Vampire app

    By Jon H. Doh
    Articles are good and I have enjoyed reading Slate in the morning with coffee. BUT, now this app starts playing video and sound ads without being clicked on. I live in a very rural area with limited internet data and this uses up my data, and forces me to have to keep turning the ads off. Not good, too invasive and cheeky. So - goodbye Slate, hello flip book and NPR. DELETED APP.
  • Needs an update badly!

    By Expatgrl
    Love the site for the quality journalism and became a Plus member when the programme first started. BUT the app is really poor. Can’t ever load all the articles in the default “Recent”view—it usually loads the last dozen or so and then skips back seemingly randomly to a couple of weeks ago leaving out all the articles in between. Have written several times to tech support and app support through several channels and have never received a response or even an acknowledgement. I guess they just don’t care. User beware!
  • Keeps sending me to ads in the web

    By dd1881
    I have not been able to read an article on the app. I keep getting sent to ads on the web
  • Content good, but

    By Puzzle Boogie
    Too many times there is no link to videos, podcasts, etc on the app. I have to go to the web version and search for the article to get the links.
  • Pop-up ads ruin user experience

    By Kdbren
    I used to love the Slate app, enjoying the many varied articles. However, recently the app has begun to pop up ads in my Safari browser, which completely ruins the user experience. And they won’t stop! Even when you close them out, even when you force-quit the app, the ads keep coming. I’m deleting this from my phone.
  • “Recent” stories order is not useful

    By D-n-w
    I like to use the “recent stories” section to keep up with what they post. However it seems that they backfill the stories. Right now there is a story that has been at the top of the list all day but there are articles below it that I haven’t seen before. According to the date and time on the articles they are in the correct order. But for some reason they don’t post to the app correctly. Hours between the times. Makes it very hard to tell when there is something new to read. I’m sure I’ve missed things thinking I had gotten to the parts I’d already read through.
  • Disappointing

    By benitez958
    I paid 1 year sub right off w/o every using or reviewing app. I paid up and signed up primarily because Slate has outstanding writers on legal decisions. I always look to Slate when i want to wade through the status of some pending legal event. However, the balance of everything else is confusing. What is this Double X, XXfactor, moneybox, atlas obscura etc. I can’t figure how to join the commentary feature. I hate trying to figure things with systems. I’m not going to do.
  • Short changed

    By Gamegurrl
    I am a slate plus member yet I don’t get all the podcast content you offer. I especially like Dear Prudence but can NEVER get the podcasts. There are also numerous SLATE podcast icons that show up in my feed but never any episodes. This app is not worth the aggravation.
