  • Hate new ads with sound

    By Murrphie
    I have always enjoyed Slate’s reporting and content. Until recently, the app had a few bugs or glitches, but I could usually restart the app and continue to read articles. Today, I open my app and there are now ads with sound that play even when my phone is on silent mode. This will prevent me from reading while at work or other situations where quiet is necessary. A disappointing development.
  • Ridiculously hard to navigate

    By lillybuck34
    Search NEVER comes up with Slow Burn when I search for Slow Burn. It pulls up all of these totally irrelevant articles. why can’t there just be a list in alphabetical order of all the podcasts?? And why can’t I figure out, as a Slate+ subscriber, how to listen to commercial free podcasts? I will probably figure all of this out eventually but it makes me mad that I HAVE to figure it out instead of it just being a straight-forward app to navigate.
  • Horrible navigation

    By yolo11221133
    I’m trying to find Slow Burn Slate Plus episodes and it’s impossible.
  • Content is rock solid, app OK

    By Red moth
    The app is mostly reliable, but not awe inspiring. The one big app complaint I have is I wish the podcast player offered different speeds.
  • Slate Plus is Smoking Wreck

    By Hellfire Bob
    They charged my card, I have a recent iPhone, and I can write code, but I still can't get Slate Plus to work. How about getting your sh#t together, Slate?
  • Fine App - A Little Buggy

    By Efranlje
    Lots of improvement in stability over the last year. Still a bit more buggy than I’d like.
  • So many bugs

    By KellyAnn_Mc
    Good content but in terms of the app, so many bugs - where is the quality control on this? Loads of podcasts still have ads even though you pay to avoid them. Loads posted ages after being posted on iPhone podcast app, some missing bonus features, podcast click ticker never works... sort it out!
  • Problems with the app

    By jettybird5
    Will not let me log in, which means I cannot take advantage of my slate plus membership. Very frustrating.
  • Love the content; hate the user interface

    By CindySmithIN
    I am about at the end of my two week free trial and am really torn about whether to start paying. The content is great, but the UI is clunky, hit-and-miss. Sometimes I get so frustrated with it I just give up. Worth the $$$?
  • Love the content but hate the app

    By ed38gar
    No android support. Postings can be inaccurate. I pay for slate plus but to frustrating to bother to renew. Sad!
