Butlerbkoolmom's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/31/18 9:01 PM
I really enjoy the content produced by Slate. So much so, I am a Slate Plus member. However, after listening to another podcast once again extolling the virtues of Slate Plus Membership, particularly the “no ad” feature, I have to call Slate out. You just fed me an ad. Please, get it right before renewal comes up. Hint: I won’t renew as is. Also, the podcasts feeds are confusing when searching via, podcast, then selecting the show, and the episodes are listed. There are often multiple shows listed, with no clarification given. Also, just heard another ad-for a live show on Trumpcast!

DivideBy0's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/22/18 8:59 PM
The search function is broken. Viewing a list of podcasts returns a blank screen. Selecting the Slate Plus section returns articles from 2016 at the top of the list with no way to sort. I would like to be able to listen to Slate Plus podcasts, but even after joining the service, subscribing on iTunes and stitcher is darn near impossible and the Slate app is useless.

On iPad this is a bunch of photos with captions. Scrolling through all of this and trying to read captions to find stories is annoying and time consuming. Poor design similar to CNN iPad app but even worse to navigate.
DecembersChild's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/18/18 3:00 PM
In the past day or two I find that the app crashes whenever I try to run it. I swear it was working great prior to that. 8/14/2018 I have an IPhone 7 using the latest version of IOS. I click the icon on the screen, it starts to load, the content screen shows up and then about about 1 second latter the apps just quits. I’ve tried restarting my phone, but it still isn’t working. Big fan of slate so I gave it two stars. Am I doing something wrong?!! update: 5 days latter and it still isn’t working. Sadly just canceled my slate plus membership. If I can’t use the app, how can I keep paying for it?
Fitz2review's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/16/18 6:15 AM
The app doesn’t give me Slate Plus content on some of the podcasts on my iPhone.
BillyRainbow's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/12/18 1:58 AM
This app has more graphics than usability. It’s very hard to search for what you want. I guess they want you to scroll through all their fancy graphics, rather than find and listen to the programs you like.
alkel101's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 8/11/18 1:43 PM
This used to be a great app. I’ve been using it for a long time and only recently has it become buggy to the point of absolute annoyance every time I use it. The latest is that it refuses to play videos. All is fine to get to the video, then the last step of clicking the play arrow does absolutely nothing. Doesn’t matter how many times I click. Nothing! The last update created freezing and I have to minimize it and then bring it back up in order to get to a next page which it jumps to in a swipe motion whether I want it to or not. It stops scrolling out of the blue but then will sometimes swipe from right to left. It’s like it can’t make up its mind whether to he a scrolling app or a swiping app. Make up your mind already. I love SLATE and, until now, the app has always been solid. Why can you people never stop fixing things that aren’t broken? Are you afraid you won’t have a job if there’s nothing to upgrade? Using an iPhone 7+.
Eetshit's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 7/8/18 11:48 PM
If you read the comments you’ll see that those who insult and denigrate commentators who stray from the party line are tolerated while those who deign to stray from the obvious leanings of the site are cast away. They stir the pot but won’t accept the blowback. It’s all opinion and no news if that’s what you seek. Bon appetit.

Horrible app. Works about as well as a can in a string. They recommend the app if you want to listen to the podcasts on an iPhone. I have Slate Plus membership for all the good that does me and I have to constantly log back in to the app. Avoid at all costs.
ZHnrdgrl's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 5/25/18 2:23 PM
When this app is working, it’s great. However, mine (iPad and iPhone) often just stop serving content—sometimes either articles or podcasts, but sometimes both at once. They just don’t update for some mysterious reason and instead display a blank screen. I’m a Slate Plus subscriber and I find it a bit irritating that I’m paying for this.
notmary's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 5/21/18 3:49 AM
The app used to be great. A few months ago I noticed it would crash if I tried to navigate to podcasts immediately after i opened the app. I found it would usually work if I restarted my phone (ugh!). But now it crashes before it even finishes launching. And restarting the phone doesn’t help. As a Slate Plus member, I expect better since I’m paying for premium access.
Fuxxer106's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 5/20/18 6:47 PM
I enjoy all of the writers/hosts that present their forms of journalism! The only issues are with the occasional ads which appear in my Slate+ podcasts. Also, being slick and flogging the intercontinental hotel chain through the mention of a lifestyle podcast, as if it’s not an infomercial, is insulting. Don’t do it! Just Audio Journalism not BS please. That’s what I pay for!

Ads pop up constantly, and not even in the app. They open in a separate Safari window, taking you out of the app entirely, and when I attempt to return, guess what? More ads! Trying to read just the headlines of recent articles today I had four ads remove me from the app to view them in my browser plus a funny or die video that popped up three times in a row requiring me to close three windows before I could attempt to read the article I was there for. I love Slate's content, but this app makes it next to impossible to access. EDIT: With the most recent update the app will open but none of the content will load.

No featured stories on my new iPad. Just a bunch of boxes undifferentiated as to importance, type content and so on. Doesn't accept comments. They've never figured out the app and still haven't. Good content, terrible technology. April 2018, still the most uninviting news/magazine app. Anybody home?

Kethura's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 4/19/18 1:49 PM
Slate is one of my go-to sources for news, and this app makes it easy. The one weakness with it is around accessing others' comments- it's possible but tricky sometimes. Still, definitely worth downloading!

I can't possibly entertain a Slate+ subscription if I can't view content in the regular app. The app update made it a blank page. I'd settle for plain text and no pictures at this rate. I hope you guys fix the app soon. Do you want us to NOT download the app?

Latest update leaves me with a completely blank page. Hey developers, have you heard of TESTING? This latest iteration is so buggy. The Slatest will NOT update, leaving me with 3-week old articles (hardly -est). And the rest of the articles, when opened, get stuck 1/2 inch off to the right or lest (as if the got stuck while swiping) so they can't be read. Grrrr! I have to read them on the webpage, which completely negates the purpose of the app.
nsinco's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 3/23/18 5:14 AM
Slate plus — happy to pay, sad that its impossible to use on my iPhone X. Over many tries in 2 months of paid membership, I’ve yet to be able to get to the “ad free” and “bonus” content. The app remains stuck in a loop that perpetually pops up the “join for free for 2 weeks” page and won’t let me on to the “plus” content. From the many negative reviews here and the length of time that I’ve had the same issue, apparently Slate doesn’t care... Oh yeah — email support? — yep, tried that too over a month ago and have not received a reply. Slate = great content, horrible service
Etatro's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 3/21/18 2:45 AM

AstroPaul's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/28/17 12:32 PM
Updating an earlier review. I’ve downgraded my rating for one simple, major reason: even at the largest setting, the font size is too small! We should not have to hold our iPhones up to our eyeballs to comfortably read the stories! I have many news apps and they all permit much larger font sizes. Please fix this! You have great material, excellent columnists and news analysts, but this is a HUGE barrier! Another problem concerns commenting. On the iPad, comments do NOT seem available. On the iPhone, they are there, but whenever I try entering one, I get an error message. A third immediate problem is that the spacing of text is often wrong on the iPhone, e.g., in recent lists of movie titles, they all run together! Alas, the other problems with the app remain, so I have left my prior reviews here. The major ones are these: * The different sections -- recent, top, and popular -- still overlap far too much. * There is still no customization of the drop down section list. * The old tabbed sections interface worked better and still needs to be brought back. —————————- PRIOR REVIEWS Slate provides a wonderful collection of articles and columns -- a kind of light Atlantic or New Yorker. The info, topics, and writers are good. The new version is a step up, with a more polished design, ease of use, etc. Now, a 4-star app. However, there are some serious issues. 1. First, the upgrade deletes ALL saved stories! Sheesh! That's App Design 101 and the Hippocratic Oath: "First, do no harm!" 2. Second, there is a major design flaw with navigation in the new version. The back arrow for returning to the headline list no longer appears with a simple scroll up or tap! Instead, one is presented with a large top maroon-colored banner--*without* a back arrow! One has to tap a 2nd time-- a nuisance. 3. A third point. The new section system appears to be an improvement in categorization, but is a major step backward in several ways. It's now a left-hand drop down menu, but the previous tabbed interface worked faster, looked cleaner, and made sections more readily accessible. 4. The biggest thing the app needs is a way to customize those sections! For example, we should be able to park our favorite columns or writers there. We always like reading Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy, but it's hard to find. 4a. It would be great if you give us an option to have a tab bar slider across the top-- as well as the drop down--the slider is much more convenient. 5. One major thing is still NOT fixed -- and is even worse now: the stories in the 3 main sections Recent, Top Stories, and Popular overlap greatly! So much so, they are almost indistinguishable! Two of those is all that's needed and with a more select culling of either Top Stories or Popular ones. 6. The background Big Ss behind each of the headlines can often make them hard to decipher! It also looks aesthetically poor. They also jump around a bit when scrolling, so they are distracting to boot. There are also unnecessary! 7. Several of the concerns from the prior review still apply, so I keep that here. -------------------------- PREVIOUS REVIEW The key problems pertain to small font sizing and the jumbled presentation of material! It doesn't matter how good the content is if you can't find it or if parts of the stories or essays are too hard to read! The block quotes in articles and columns, for example, are in too small a font size, even with the font size set at Extra Large. They should be the same size as the regular text. The comments are ridiculously small in size and largely unreadable. The app misses the boat on basic interface guidelines-- the ellipsis ... that should signify further choices -- but is used as a checkmark (for font size). There's no customization of sections-- in fact, there are no sections shown save for Recent, Featured, and Popular! So, the stories and columns are a jumble! The buried list of sections should be put into a sliding tab bar across the top, with user customization of order and topics (see the old Washington Post app for how both should be done). Slate+ is an enhanced version of the offerings, but the FAQ doesn't explain what it is! In the pro column, the astronomy column by Phil Plait is on here. However, it shows up randomly --there's no way of parking it or others in a Favorites section. So, you have to hunt for it and still may not find it. [It's now in the pull down list of sections, but way down, which is inconvenient. Another reason users should be able to customize the section list!] There is a Search box, but then you have to type in his name each time! Look forward to an improved next version!

Constant Reader Jr.'s Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/27/17 12:20 AM
It’s almost impossible to scroll through the app without getting caught on an ad, which interrupts browsing and dumps cookies on your phone. Poor design, from a reader’s point of view, and not so ideal for the advertisers, either, because it’s a deterrent to opening the app in the first place. Good content but guaranteed frustration.

RidinHi's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/2/17 4:29 PM
For me, Slate supplements my primary national and international news sources, the NYT and MSNBC (used to be CNN but CNN mostly is terrible now). Slate provides in-depth analysis and brings in a lot of different sources. Slate writers are also funny sometimes, which I enjoy. I read Slate every day. I've been reading Slate every day for a lot of years, probably since you started. Send me a coffee cup or t-shirt or something. I mostly read on my iPhone and the layout is perfect for reading on my phone. The lost star is because I don't like the layout when I look at Slate on my computer - it's confusing. You do a super job covering the Supreme Court.
Pat in Oregon's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/2/17 2:26 PM
The site is difficult to wade through; graphics are distracting and cumbersome; no commercials means only podcast and event ads and lots of them; I don’t like the mess of meaningless categories presented and won’t renew; will go back to fast forward over the ads. Should be intuitive instead reminds me of past annoyances like the old MS paperclip.
andrew.starks's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/17/17 2:15 PM
I was very impressed with Slow Burn and for several reasons wanted to purchase Slate Plus to get the in-depth content and also support Slate. I went onto their web site and found it actually pretty confusing to sign up, having to perform many more clicks than needed and there being no obvious way to log in with google or Facebook (you can and it’s pretty obvious in the app) Once I finally got an account, I tried to sign into the Slate Plus version. No dice. URL broken. Then I read it’s easy to do from the Slate app. It’s not. I honestly have no idea how to get that done. Clicking on the Slow Burn podcast brings up an article with links to the non-plus version and nothing to the plus version. Maybe I’m missing something. But I’ve spent way too much time trying to figure something out that should be obvious. I’d hate to be in slate’s shoes. Their app is almost certainly costing them thousands of dollars in lost revenue.
Gabriella Du Sult's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 12/15/17 8:22 PM
Love Slate - it’s one of my go-to sources. But I cannot believe you “splashed” a spoiler for “The Last Jedi” the day it opens! Stating in a big headline that Rey’s parentage will be revealed is a spoiler by itself, and putting it in the headline is worse. At least give us a fighting chance to avoid details. Please do your readers a favor and TAKE IT DOWN!

I read a lot of news on the Apple News app, where for the first time I’ve viewed Slate’s articles and interpretations.

Love the site for the quality journalism and became a Plus member when the programme first started. BUT the app is really poor. Can’t ever load all the articles in the default “Recent”view—it usually loads the last dozen or so and then skips back seemingly randomly to a couple of weeks ago leaving out all the articles in between. Have written several times to tech support and app support through several channels and have never received a response or even an acknowledgement. I guess they just don’t care. User beware!

Articles are good and I have enjoyed reading Slate in the morning with coffee. BUT, now this app starts playing video and sound ads without being clicked on.

D-n-w's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 10/25/17 6:57 PM
I like to use the “recent stories” section to keep up with what they post. However it seems that they backfill the stories. Right now there is a story that has been at the top of the list all day but there are articles below it that I haven’t seen before. According to the date and time on the articles they are in the correct order. But for some reason they don’t post to the app correctly. Hours between the times. Makes it very hard to tell when there is something new to read. I’m sure I’ve missed things thinking I had gotten to the parts I’d already read through.
benitez958's Review of SlatecomReviewed on 10/24/17 2:40 PM
I paid 1 year sub right off w/o every using or reviewing app. I paid up and signed up primarily because Slate has outstanding writers on legal decisions. I always look to Slate when i want to wade through the status of some pending legal event. However, the balance of everything else is confusing. What is this Double X, XXfactor, moneybox, atlas obscura etc. I can’t figure how to join the commentary feature. I hate trying to figure things with systems. I’m not going to do.

I like the content, some days I even love the content. But I hate the app with a burning passion. It never works correctly. I currently have “The Slatest” stories that were published back as far as October showing. And don’t get me started on the ads that pop open out of nowhere and lock my iPhone and iPad in a rabbit hole of hellish redirects to places I’d never browse of my own choice. I’ve waited through multiple updates for improvements, but it only appears to be getting worse, so I Slate will be losing me as an app user. This isn’t worth the trouble!!!
