  • This is the most user unfriendly app ever

    By Nykart
    This is the most user unfriendly app ever. First, I got slateplus to listen to Trumpcast, they make it impossible to find Trumpcast. Most of the time I can’t find what I want to listen to. Next the search engine does not work, it can’t find simple things like titles or show/ column name. Unless it’s a slateplus only content I listen on iPhone podcast app, that app it works! The slate app is very frustrating.
  • Constructive feedback for slate plus and app designers

    By Hilary prentice
    Wish you could download the podcasts avail through the subscription...also wish the interface was cleaner, easier to search the content, more visually simple.
  • Content good, app bad

    By Privacy nerd
    The app closes after being open for 5 minutes or less. Have tried rebooting the phone and restarting the app, even deleting the app and reinstalling it. Still fails.
  • Like the content, hate the app

    By Spacetrader37
    Amazingly incompetent app, that gets all the little things wrong. E.g., embedded video in articles never works, so you can read a whole article about some Twitter memo or YouTube video, and not be able to view it without exiting the app and finding it on your own.
  • Heats up my phone

    By Lizgerard
    This app has recently been heating my phone to an alarming degree and is crashing constantly. I uninstalled :(
  • Good content, not so good app

    By ghjyopesaw
    The app frequently crashes. I tried luck. I was considering Slate Plus, but not right now.
  • Love Slate but hate the app

    By Harvejg
    I love the content, but this is the only app on my IPhone that crashes on a regular basis.
  • The App Keeps Getting Worse

    By TomW2015A
    The app used to be better. Ad-free podcasts used to not play ads. And it didn’t used to crash as often as it does now. I’m at the point where I might stop being a Slate Plus member because of how bad the app is. I really like Slate content, but they are making it difficult to easily access it so what’s the point?
  • Tech issues w subscription

    By pirate jenny
    I subscribed so I could enjoy more episodes - the content is fabulous. But I lost access to that extra content after maybe a month, for no reason I can follow. I tried everything they recommend - tried using a range of listening platforms to no avail. Spent about 40$ to listen to about an hour and then lost that time and more to trouble shooting.
