🤨4.6 rating? Really?…

The SLATE iOS app is a complete and utter embarrassment. Slate continent can be good, sometimes excellent, but there’s obviously not putting their best and brightest on the app. The Apple TV app is non-functional now. How sad 😳 Original review from years ago (5⭐️): Haven't had a single glitch or crash. I love the "swipe" navigation, and the layout, and of course the sane & literate content. Thanks for a well-executed app with often interesting and intelligent articles (and fantastic podcasts).

This app is a disaster

I like Slate’s content very much, and I’m a Slate Plus member, but the app is practically unusable. I used to read Slate via my RSS reader, but recently that became impossible: Slate was requiring a separate sign-in which it often wouldn’t accept. So I switched to the app. It is equally frustrating. I’m signed in, but it seems to have trouble remembering that, especially when I try to switch to an article referenced in another article. At that point it wants me to sign in again, and doesn’t always accept the signin. Plus the search function is all but non-existent: try finding the News Quiz, which doesn’t seem to show up by itself. Finally, there are times when the app just freezes completely. PLEASE FIX THE APP.

Have a subscription but app kicks me off

I’ve had a subscription for over a year, but suddenly I’ve been kicked off Slate on my iPhone and can’t sign in. I’ve succeeded in signing in on my computer, so what gives???

Free Mike Pesca

I appreciate Slate’s unapologetically liberal stance on most issues, but the fact that they removed Mike Pesca, with no explanation because he expressed an unpopular view, makes me less interested in their viewpoints, if they can’t tolerate a range of viewpoints, no matter how uncomfortable. The censorious has to stop.

App constantly drains battery and heats up iPhone

Not sure what the problem is, but has persisted for years. This app constantly burns thru the phone and drains battery

Can’t log into slate plus

Been a subscriber for years. Now it won’t accept my login and the app restricts my free access. The slate app has had issues from the beginning. This app is horrible.

Fix the app. It’s a mess

I love the Slate content. But the app is constantly freezing or forcing my phone to restart. If it’s because I have an older iPhone, then just say so. But it’s not worth the content to suffer through this app’s issues.

Slate app is trash

I’m a Slate Plus member yet still must sign on constantly as the app doesn’t remember me from previous sign-ins. It’s not just the app. The website is the same. I cannot recommend this app nor would I suggest anyone join Slate Plus.

Slate is Great

Thoughtful, interesting, well written, informative. Especially good at background information.

Terrible app a barrier to good content

When you sign in to Slate Plus the only way to leave that pop up is to hit the back button—which signs you back out. And the headlines are clipped to three lines, so you have to guess at what the article is actually about if it’s longer. Did anyone actually, you know, test this thing on iOS?
