    Slate is easy to read and gives you the news and opinions in a cohesive way.
  • Worst

    By Candysweats
    Slate is my very last stop reading the morning news! It's messy. I start with Huff Post, then Salon, then NY Times, then I sometimes finally look at Slate.
  • Love the articles, esp Prudie!

    By TacomaStar

  • Meh

    By Mushi67
    Love the stories but the forums have been overrun by trolls and morons who are incapable of having intelligent conversation. They should shut them down - the Internet is already garbage enough.

  • Podcast function is Bad

    By sunnygracie
    I got the app specifically to listen to podcasts and every time I navigate away from the app or turn off my screen it pauses the audio. Terrible functionality
