    I've tried this both on my iPhone and on my iPad and it works on neither. Love slate though!
  • Slick app, great opinionated commentary

    By Chatters
    Fun provocative coverage of culture and current affairs in a neat package
  • Great app, nicer than the website of course.

    Slate Podcasts are king though!
  • Poorly designed for audio

    By Magnapolis
    I usually listen to podcasts on slate and there is no way to manage audio streams in this app. The audio plays in the background without a media player to navigate recordings. Stream their podcasts elsewhere and skip the app if you prefer their audio.
  • Easy to use, and great access to content.

    By Bozonechica
    I love the layout of the app as it leads to me meandering through the news, rather than looking for targeted stories. The only criticism is that Slate Plus content should be better identified.
  • The first news source I check

    By Richierichcrx
    Good coverage on the stories I need to know.
  • Much better app

    Does need automatic background download of articles otherwise it's annoying to wait for each article. See nytimes of how to do it really well.
