It is useless now. All I get is a black screen since updating my iOS.
This app is the preferred way of accessing Slate plus content, but it is unreliable and frustrating. It frequently fails to save my credentials, freezes and crashes often and when it’s working has widely variable load times. To add insult to injury, the RSS has stopped being updated after a long weekend. I am happy to pay for Slate content, but this complete afterthought of an app is a slap in the face to paid subscribers.
No content updates in 3d.
App is fine. But hasn’t updated any content since Saturday or Sunday. This happens every now and then, have tried deleting and reinstalling but no improvement.
Right now the app is not uploading new stories.
i tried clicking on app support but it just took me to the slate.com homepage. every now & then, the app just doesn’t update with new articles even though they are published to the website. it kind of kills the point of having an app if i still need to visit the website. i tried uninstalling and redownloading, but it was still the same articles from sunday morning at the top of the recent tab when it opened. this usually goes on for several days and then someone fixes whatever bug is bugging and things go back to normal. would be nice if it either didn’t happen or didn’t take so long to fix.
Really I don’t understand what Slates problem is. But right now there’s no updated content and hasn’t been since before the holiday weekend.Don’t call yourself a news site if everybody goes on vacation and fails to update the content on the app for four days. I’ve checked the website and there have been new articles posted but nothing comes up on the app.
Mary Harris presents very timely topics and is so informed and does a great job interviewing her guests. Look forward to her podcast every day during the week.
I just switched from a Samsung phone to a 13 Pro, and I am so disappointed in the app for Apple. On the Android side, the UIF looked like a news site like the NYT and WP. This app is nothing but a list of articles, and I will cancel my Plus subscription.
Never has the distance between how much I love the content of something and hate the delivery of it been as great as it is with Slate. This app is just the worst. Constant bugs, ads that pop up and cause issues every time you scroll past them, lack of updates, so on Sunday morning when you are most likely to want to spend time reading, it’s never a sure bet Slate will have new content. Comments are not enabled on the app, you can’t view them or make them. I also have issues with my account and the app every time I renew my sub which I don’t know why I keep doing.
