Customer Reviews

Hopelessly frustrated Slate Plus member

Slate is giving me high blood pressure. In spite of my several emails over the past year asking for help, no suggestions work, and I receive constant requests to join Plus, even though I am logged in. At the very least Slate needs to add—NOW—a Plus log-in link to any and all Plus emails, pop-ups, etc. I like Slate a lot, but dealing with this endless, frustrating problem is making me crazy. Why must there be a second log-in? Where is it hidden?? Other ezines' software recognize me. I know that others are having the same problem. Is anyone listening?

I love it, but...

Slate is just about my favorite online news source, but I hate the animated ads. They annoy me a lot and I absolutely guarantee I WILL NOT purchase from or use the services of these advertisers.

Also, I tried to join Slate Plus while in the UK but could not figure out how and now can't even log in. Please don't make it so difficult!

Love Slate. The app...not so much,

Why am I still seeing 'join Slate+" banners after I already purchased? Where do I find the login / account information in the iPad app? These are the questions that plague mankind. I may cancel my 2 week trial if I can't get a reply back from the subscription department. I want to support you, Slate, but please fix your buggy, messy app.
