  • Too many grammatical errors

    By Don Bucky
    You can tell Slate uses a computer driven spelling and grammar checker. Too many sentences with idiotic word selection along with verb errors. Truly detracts from an otherwise good news source.
  • Bad getting worse

    By Toboggan 2012
    Love Slate. App has been garbage since it came out and keeps getting worse. Can’t play videos in it. Can’t play the quiz in it. Freezes towards the bottoms of articles. Cuts off the bottom of some articles. Now it blinks briefly and shows me a black screen. Can’t do/see anything.

    Used to editorial aim towards a more social and political balance, now seems more 70/30 towards a more liberal lean. Still good writing,but does not seem to consider internal bias
  • Content is great- if the app worked

    Frequently crashes, freezes.
  • A miserably unreliable app

    By ohheyitsjake
    I love slate content and this has been pitched as the most convenient means for me to access slate plus podcasts and extras—but it’s so buggy and prone to crashing that I have to wonder why it exists at all.
  • Content is great

    By Harpertreat
    Content is great, app is not. I pay for slate plus, and this app crashes way too often. Pretty frustrating.
  • Love love love Slate but....

    By AmberVasquez
    for the love of all that is holy please fix the search feature!! I’m in UX and it drives me absolutely nuts that seemingly no one on the QA team (please say someone IS QAing this app!!) has caught that search is a complete black hole dead end that the user is unable to back out of without quitting and restarting the app. If someone can fix this issue overall it’s a great app :)
  • App dumb, content great

    By Bdj5000
    I love Slate podcasts but the app has never not given me trouble. If you’re not a Slate Plus member you might as well listen using any other podcast app.
  • Screen blanks on Search

    By markgrunen

  • No search button

    It’s a shame they make it so difficult to find their podcasts.
