App needs work

Slatw content is solid if a little gossipy, but unlike the previous reviewer I’m totally fine paying for the contact. I’m just surprised by how bad this app is. Recommend enlisting some real pros for a significant upgrade

What happened to comments

First the app kept crashing. Then it wouldn’t acknowledge my plus membership unless I bought it again through apple. Now the app is finally working & giving me my plus content but there are no comments section anymore Why?

good site but buggy app

Slate is great but this app is buggy: a long period of login problems and now it’s not possible to view comments, a problem which apparently has Slate’s B-grade tech people completely flummoxed.

Crashing Constantly

I love the programming on Slate which is why I became a Slate Plus member. However, the Slate app is constantly logging me off Slate Plus so I’m listening to commercials, and it’s constantly crashing or pausing in the middle of a podcast. I’m not quite sure what to do about any of this. The app is fully updated and still giving me problems. I know I don’t have this problem when I listen to Slate programs on the Apple podcast app. So….I may cancel my Slate Plus membership if they can’t get this fixed.

Not functional

Comments section not functional. It’s a known problem and help folk just direct you to the website apparently instead of fixing the problem.

Love the content but the app is too glitchy

I am and will continue my subscription due to the content that I love but the app is truly insufferable and very glitchy

Love Slate - hate the current app

I’m a Slate Plus member and still can’t get to the articles most of the time. I have to re-sign in every time and when that doesn’t work (which is about half the time) the app freezes and all I can do is try again the next day…

I am a paid subscriber and the app does not open. I deleted it, downloaded it again and still will not open. I am going to have to delete my subscription. Alberto
