  • 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.
  • More...user interface

    By CindySmithIN
    Just realized I should clarify...I’m referring to the UI for Slate podcasts and Slate+.
  • Searching issues

    By Helios1014
    If you are a slate plus member, there really should be a list of podcast feeds that is easy to find. Instead, one has to search deep in the bowels of an FAQ to find the slat plus RSS feed list. Also, If I do a search for an article, I have to exit the app to return to the home page since it will otherwise remain stuck on the list of search results.
  • Bad app!

    By QueenBean2016
    Why pay for Slate + is the app doesn’t even work?
  • 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!
  • Search = black hole

    By andymae1
    Search function works but there’s no way to back out of the article. Can’t get to home page or do another search.
  • App Will not open!

    By PrincessDog
    App starts to open and shuts down immediately. And I have slate plus! Please fix.
  • Slate Plus

    By Butlerbkoolmom
    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!
  • Auto play ads

    By Professor Lenny
    Sick of the auto play video ads. Deleting the app.
