  • Comments section broken

    By Max81764646
    Instead of constantly badgering me to pay for Slate +, how about fixing your comments section? “There are currently no comments” - for every article, and it’s been that way for months. (iPhone 7)
  • Hmm

    By Wankboi
    I had to reinstall this after dealing with it crashing often. It works OK now. Using the app is better than access through the web, but you can't see article comments on the app. You also can't see author names from the main screen, making it hard to avoid clicking on articles from known troll writers.
  • Crashes a lot

    By もっと使いたい人
    Despite all the crashes and bugs others rightly point out, I give it a 5-star rating for its content.

    Has a lot of problems as other reviews have pointed out, but I give it 5 stars for good articles and good reading...
  • Full of bugs & crashes!

    By asukey
    One of the worst apps I've ever used. Crashes a lot, wrong articles displayed when headline is clicked, articles do not even appear at times. Extremely frustrating!
  • Bad

    Get a better app.

    By Debumontand
    Very disappointing.
  • not good enough for a paid app

    By erusasensei
    I bought this app quite a while ago and was mostly content with it...although I was frustrated that if I exited and then returned to an article, I would have to start from the top again. But recently (since the upgrade to OS4?) it won't open and instead simply crashes after displaying the title page for a while. I've noticed that the latest update is over 3 months old, well before OS4 was released. When can we expect an update?
  • アップデート

    By ScandalCrusader
    起動直後のクラッシュは修正されたものの、230円も金をとっておきながら、フォントサイズが変更不可なので読みにくい。 ちなみに、ファーストリリースにてクラッシュ問題をアップルに報告し返金を要求したが返事は一切なし。代わりにStoreから、いきなりこのAppが消えていた。数日後にはバグフィックスされ戻って来たが。。。 よくよく考えると最低な対応だと思う。
