Keeps crashing!

As I scroll through articles, the app shuts down. This is a new phenomenon. Contacted Slate support, no response.

Love the content— dislike the app

I enjoy reading all the columns and articles on your site— but the site repeatedly crashes before I get beyond the first few words. Please fix this.

Slate is great but this app is terrible

The app constantly crashes and will not load any of the content.

Great content... terrible app

I love Slate. I’ve been a member of slate plus since they started it (I have the mug to prove it). Their app is lousy. I don’t listen to the podcasts through the app (I use overcast for that), but I have found too many bugs. The search feature doesn’t work. I often have to close out the app and restart it to get things to work again. The app looks pretty, but the bones leave a lot to be desired.

Snappy journalism

Hard hitting accountability.
By Ructastic

Love the writing, the app ain’t great.

I’m a big fan of Slate as a journalistic enterprise but the app needs a lot of improvement. It shuts down periodically for no reason, the ads open links with barely a touch, and if you search for old articles using keywords you get no results.

So i joined alate because of political gabfest. Im must be missing something because its very hard to find it each week. I think i should be able to mark as a favorite and have it downloaded each week like i did on the apple app.
