  • 5.3.6 update fixes blank sections

    By surfsnow
    Yay! Glad to see they fixed the missing content problem.
  • Zero content

    By bdenhond
    Blank pages only, oh well, back to the browser then.
  • My go-to

    By Kethura
    Slate is one of my go-to sources for news, and this app makes it easy. The one weakness with it is around accessing others' comments- it's possible but tricky sometimes. Still, definitely worth downloading!
  • Lost the comments on iPhone AGAIN

    By dilmhuncgj
    5.3.6 killed the comments on iPhones again. How hard is this to get right and why would I ever be a plus member with this kind of App?
  • No more white screen

    By PhlashPhlash
    At last, the 18 April 2018 update has fixed the white screen issue for me so I can finally read articles again. I love slate. Generally. Am not sure if there has been any improvement on loading times or freezing issues...
  • What's Wrong?

    By Magnolia127
    I can't possibly entertain a Slate+ subscription if I can't view content in the regular app. The app update made it a blank page. I'd settle for plain text and no pictures at this rate. I hope you guys fix the app soon. Do you want us to NOT download the app?
  • Still doesn't work

    By Theodulf
    I just installed the update that was supposed to "(hopefully) fix a bug that makes sections show up empty." Nope. Keep at it.
  • Version 5.3.3 broke my app

    By radiobug
    IPhone 6s, iOS 10.3.3, stopped working on April 4...which is why I am here. The app is now completely blank and void of content. I was a loyal consumer of content through your app. Please fix it. Deleted and downloaded again, didn't work.
  • Still not perfect

    By Hypatia1975
    Content is great, but I have to reinstall it about once a week to get it to work.
  • It used to work ...

    By mishkachanmama
    But then I updated to the latest release. Now when I use the app content doesn't show up unless I use the search feature.
