App Reviews

  • Unusable on iPhone X

    By LuckysClub
    This app is unusable on an iPhone X. Once you go into an article, you can not get out because none of the buttons are tappable and swiping backwards doesn’t work.
  • Meh

    By Fitz2review
    I like the new layout but don't see any comments on my iPad or iPhone. Comments are my favorite part. I pay for the Plus subscription so this is a major problem.
  • Crashy McCrashleton

    By neonmickey
    I love love love Slate but the app freezes up/crashes almost daily. Today I went through the rigamarole of uninstalling, reinstalling, logging in (the restore feature does not work) and it crashed again within 30 seconds.
  • I miss reading comments

    By LxN8r
    I don't HATE the redesign, but I'm not all that impressed. I find the icon garish and unattractive, but that's just styling. I mostly read slate on an IPAD 2. I purchased PLUS through the Apple Store; and wish I hadn't, as I can never access plus material any other way. And there are never any comments, which was among the features I regularly enjoyed, and now do not have. Why is this rocket science? Someone has figured out how to do this well; must everyone else reinvent their wheel.?
  • Pathetically Biased

    By Joosh211
    Most of the articles posted here are obviously slanted to the left. And in my opinion more severely than Fox News is to the right.
  • Ms

    By Ohpleasenotagain
    Has Slate looked at the reviews of this app that are compiled in the App Store? Almost every review is one star. There are a bunch of reviews that say the app is not working for the iPhone X, but, guess what? I have the 6s and the app doesn't work for my phone either. The comments for the articles do not show up. I have no problem if use my Google Chrome app and search for the site and access it through the internet but this app is an epic fail. I am deleting this pos from my phone.
  • Lousy UI

    By SGfan99
    When will Slate fix the UI issues with the latest update? Going back after reading an article has become hit or miss. The back arrow shows up in the middle of the article and does not always work. Have to close app and come back to get to main screen. This is disappointing!
  • Frustrating cluttered

    By Feathered Fish
    Subscribed to Slate+ for SLOW BURN without ads and extra material...but doesn’t play automatically on my iTunes podcast app. Very frustrating to navigate!
  • Slate is great. App is buggy as all get out.

    By _IantoJones
    Others have described it better than I can, but the persistence of extremely old articles in your feed and near impossibility of refreshing for new ones is maddening.
  • This app is terrible

    By wilsonbe
    I love Slate content so I signed up Slate Plus. It is very difficult to view member content via Stitcher through the Slate Plus feed because it gets buried. So, when the Slate app works it is fine, but most of the time it crashes. Thus, I have no good way to listen to Slate Plus content on my phone. ☹️ Importantly, I wasted my money on Slate Plus!
