  • To be informed

    Liking the breadth and depth of writing, especially the legal analysis.
  • One star for one very annoying non-feature

    By Axios023
    Can’t read the articles in landscape mode. It’s 2019. Give us this feature.
  • Read it online

    By dcc297
    Slate is great. This app is not. It freezes and crashes constantly, and updates much slower than the website. Read it in your browser.
  • Causes phone to get hot, missing link

    By Pjxxxxxx
    Reading some article causes phone to heat up hot as if some process was running the hard drive past optimal. I shut off all apps then updated this app, and tried again, with only this app open, same problem. Slate news quiz links don’t show up on app for iPhone.
  • All the news that doesn’t see print

    By Mason Jarr
    You can count on slate for unusual topics or unusual focus on the unusual topics. The app has never crashed has a simple transparent interface and downloads quickly wherever you are.
  • Many podcasts to enjoy

    By Sonneveldt
    Mike Pesca is great. I also love Trumpcast and Political Gabfest is also great. I love all of the shows.
  • Slate plus ?

    By HowGreenThouArt
    I subscribe to Slate plus, and the only thing in my Slate plus feed seems to be an advice column. I don’t care about advice, where are my premium podcasts? I use the iPhone X. I subscribed to sleep plus soley for Virginia Heffernan and Trumpcast. I cannot find it in Slate plus.
  • Slow Burn

    By TexasTokyo
    This multi-part series is far better than most titles you’ll find on Netflix. The bonus pieces are a great ROI.
  • Beware - extremely hard to unsubscribe

    By Reina Divina
    I appreciate the talent on Slate so the low review is because I really dislike their app and the fact that their instructions to cancel don’t work. It should not be hard to unsubscribe but it is. Hellish app. Stick w the free version! Their app has been horrible all year and they simply don’t improve it.
  • Snarly, snarky, sarcastic, socialist stories

    By GlennWatson
    The days of unbiased journalism are long dead but Slate takes bias to a new level.
