Could be better, could be worse. The app functions if you open it directly. If you are trying to read an article via a link (say from Google's newsfeed) it's completely broken. Once the link opens the app, the app "forgets" you're logged in but also won't let you log in to read the article. Also, not all sections are listed in the menu. It could really use drop-down menus so you can chose directly rather than relying on search or headers. Would love a way to favorite categories.

I pay a premium for Slate. The app is dysfunctional. I am constantly asked to sign in mid article and then redirected to the front page or receive an error and have to restart my app. The podcast player is a joke you can hardly pause or rewind and can't see where you are. The search engine is just ads and doesn't find anything even if you search exactly the name of an article. It's so frustrating because I like Slate's journalism and entertainment, but I have such a hardtime accessing it.

When read on my android phone, it is far too easy to click on the ads as you scroll by, almost impossible to avoid them. I do not have this problem on any other app. So, although I do not have a pet, I guess it keeps showing me pet product ads because of all the times I got into them by accident? Makes the app almost unusable, but I guess they can charge the advertisers for the clicks... Journalism good, app unbearable.
