Add this app to your lists
Read Slashdot stories and comment on them.

Slashdot is the best place to discuss news for nerds online. Unfortunately, their website is not friendly to mobile browsers, reading and posting comments is especially painful. Now you can read all the internet's most insightful comments, as well as add your own invaluable insight to the discussion, easily from the comfort of your phone or tablet.

PlusFive presents you all the best comments on Slashdot, in an interface that is very similar to the normal (desktop) version of the website. Similar to their website, it also allows you to filter the comments by score.

    Great /. app, but crashes constantly. Five stars when fixed & comment user-names are added.

    Darn! I really like this format and features but it crashes constantly.

    It crashes quite often when you click an article! Also fails to load comments about a third of the time. When it does work, however, it comes close to the /. site itself for looks and functionality. I wish there were a better app.

    With latest version, NPE@SlasdotContent:259 all the time. Unusable. Shame!

    App feels closest to Slashdot. I second the signing issue I imagine it will be fixed

    Subject says all

    I did have a crash problem but the author fixed it quickly. Now it's by far the best /. app on Android. I wish Google would offer services to the author's country so he could do a paid version.
