Slow and kludgy. After reading a few articles, the app seems to "lock up," it won't change screens, and it goes blank. It can't seem to keep up with itself. I enjoy Slate content, but I'm much better off on my laptop than on this disappointment of an app.

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.
