Love the articles, can't share The app is only useful to me as a convenient place to take note of articles I might want to share later from the website. But this extra step makes me less likely to share the articles. What is the point of allowing app users to read but not share content? We're not paid subscribers. It's all available on the website. Do you want sharing or do you plan to erect a paywall? I would understand either decision, but obliging is to go to the website to share just seems like a way of diminishing your impact.
Limited app I read Slate daily and love the content. The app is frustrating bc I can't share articles or even "open in browser" from the app. Also, embedded content doesn't come through so much of the time we miss the punchline. The app LOOKS good and, for me, is stable (I use a Samsung Galaxy Note). Just wish I could easily share the great content.
I like Slate, but the app is crap Other users have said it very well here. The app shows no embedded content, (images or videos) no comments, and does not facilitate sharing of articles. I have no problem with how the app presents text on my screen. Swiping between articles also works well. But, please work out how to show embedded images! Thx.
App poorly designed, ads disappointing Long time Slate Plus subscriber disappointed. Switched to Android and loved the Apple app much more compared to this one. Would list design flaws but just hope they make the app more like the one in the Apple store. Also the Pop up full screen video ads are especially obnoxious. Not only I can't log in to view Slate Plus content but feel the ads are extraneous for those who support you all directly.
Terrible app I only read Slate for Dear Prudence and to see how the other political side thinks. So the content for me is so so. That aside, the app itself is horrendous. You can only see the first picture and no other media in any article. You can't see comments. Clicking on a link will open it in the app, and actually within the very article, rather than just sending it to my Internet app. It's also organized very differently than the website for no reason. Overall, you prob should just stick with the website.
Never contains the media (photos, etc) it references I love Slate. As a regular Slate android user, I've become used to the fact that while title-pictures appear in the beginning of articles, everything else that isn't text (referenced photos, quotes presented as pictures of text, etc) is completely missing, with no explanation. It's common to have an article that will indicate a picture (it will even say things like 'as shown here: '), then a blank line until text continues. In fact, I actually don't even *know* how many pieces of media are missing. Why?
