  • Keeps restarting podcasts

    By eleanor k.
    I got the Slate app to access Slate Plus podcasts, but every time I stop a podcast, it seems to log me out and then log me back in, and then it restarts the podcast from the beginning. And there is no way to skip ahead to where I was before I pressed stop except pressing +15sec a hundred times.

    I just downloaded the upgrades to the app. And it's CRASHED TWICE. Best go back to the drawing board.
  • Still horrible

    By IdahoTruth
    Still won't open on my iPad2. Immediately crashes. Surely you can fix this. Also, the News Quiz has never worked on the iPad.
  • Sadly had to delete my favorite news app

    Slate has been my favorite app for years. Since the last update it has not worked at all. If it even opens, it crashes my iPhone. When I go to the mobile site I was being sporadically pushed to the app, again crashing my phone. Please, please fix this!!!!! I have an iPhone 6, iOS 10.3.1, problem occurs on my 4G connection and when on wifi.

    I've loved Slate since it's inception. In-depth, no bullsh!t reporting that tells it like it is. I rely on Slate; it continues to be a beacon of fact and truth as we muddle through this mire.
