ZIELLI's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/6/18 4:47 AM
I unfortunately have attention span of a goldfish but am always looking to learn new things. Medium is great for short, well written and informative bits of knowledge when I find enough time to sit still. 👍🏼👍🏼
Guiseppi Paulino's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/6/18 12:32 AM
First off this is an awesome app. It ha shelled me get over my fear of never being published and some of my favorite writers use it too. So that is an amazing blessing. Also being able to subscribe for the partner program was seamless from my phone. That is where the issue lays. I can publish from my phone but I can make a membership only publication from my phone. That’s a huge drag since o write mostly from my phone. That’s the only reason why it’s not 5/5 stars. Fixing this would be a huge leap.

catwriter's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/4/18 5:12 AM
I’ve been checking in on Medium periodically since its inception. The UX/UI is great whether on desktop or mobile app. And there is some stellar writing happening here, of a more thoughtful and articulate nature than what you usually find online. But their paid model is puzzling. What constitutes the premium content? Who curates or edits it, and why should I pay to read it, when the internet is full of content that is either free or professionally published? The value proposition is not clear. I think the paid subscription could easily be converted to a more established model to monetize this more successfully - subscribe to writers you like (like Patreon), pay for the app, or pay for your “blog page” to post your own content (like Wordpress). Lastly, I don’t know if it’s because I’m not a paid subscriber, or because it’s just not thriving, but a lot of the content I’m being shown dates back to 2014-2016.

This version is the best one yet. Huge improvements since the last update. Keep it up! //Update: Please show TabBar when in subviews on Profile (e.g. Bookmarks) to provide context and make it easier for me to switch between sections of the app. Thank you! 👍🏻😍 //Update 2: Please add support for iPhone XS Max.
needanewnicknameagain's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/29/18 1:39 PM
Medium has been a real positive in my writing and reading life. However, I don't understand (and therefore, don’t fully trust) the algorithms. Medium should be more transparent. I also would like to see a return to the focus on independent writers. For example, the New York Times already has a website and app. Why does it need another outlet on Medium?
Miyah E's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/29/18 10:07 PM

amo272727's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/28/18 4:56 AM
So sick of seeing those 3 words ^^. I get that they’re pushing for membership and want to make money but it seems that my home page is 95% member only posts. So I see those 3 words a lot and it’s super irritating. I wish there was a way to just block member only posts so I didn’t have to see them or that the homepage was less full of them

The current experience is 90% articles in my fees tell me I must upgrade. I’ve really enjoyed this as a medium platform. I’d like to be to click a button so you know I will never give you money. I'd expect it to filter out all these salespitch articles. For now I'll not use your product.

Cajun Bella's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/25/18 3:10 AM
To avoid wasting my time and storage space, I researched Medium after I saw the in-app purchases and the ITunes description referenced paid membership being a "perk" and not required to read the articles. After reading two articles, I received a message saying I would have to become a member to read additional articles as my free article limit had been exceeded this month. If those same messages would have appeared in my research instead of after downloading the app, it would have saved me time and now frustration. Maybe I'm clueless or have lived under a rock, but why is there a fee required anyway? It's not a major news publication like their publishing-conglomerate predecessors and they highlight their use of amateur authors which seems to defeat the purpose of a paid subscription? Interesting content, but not enticing enough for a subscription.
Midisstar's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/25/18 2:07 PM

Autumn Flew's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/21/18 10:02 AM
This over rated app needs a better way of previewing an article before counting it read. A few overly enthusiastic swipes and other newbie moves cost me a months worth of free articles in my first 3 minutes exploring my new download and I had only just downloaded this app. For real, in less than 3 minutes of opening the app for the first time my first month was gone. Never had such a disappointing app experience. Deleting now.
NonchalantSmoke's Review of MediumReviewed on 9/20/18 3:27 PM

wuz2blu's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/4/18 10:37 PM
This app has fun, enlightening editorial articles. It was a blast (at first) to use. The problem is, they only allow you to read three articles before they demand and require you to “upgrade” (pay) to continue using it. Really? Three articles? And the message you get is ridiculous: “You read a lot. Please upgrade to continue....”
Travis298's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/31/18 4:06 PM
This company is terrible, they lure you in with all these “free” articles then after 10 minutes of reading you start getting blocked by a message “you read a lot, upgrade to continue reading”. This whole site is another “free preview” type scam to take your money. I’m not even sure if the articles on here are valuable, I can’t read any of them! If the site is entirely paid, premium content, which it is, they should be transparent and advertise it as such not mislead and con. Deleting this crap from my phone immediately.
Clyde Dsouza's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/31/18 1:02 PM
Medium is beautiful app and has amazing Content - something that keeps you more optimistic and also good for learning unlike other apps where we just get so bored scrolling with unrelated content. One suggestion - when dark theme is switched on can we have the options after selection have a different color - I am referring to the Highlight , Copy section ... it’s a bit difficult to read when there’s little contrast.
joeplayssax's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/30/18 4:05 PM

No_gluten's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/21/18 11:42 PM
I am not exactly sure why the crashes occur, I am reading a story, I turn my iPad from portrait to landscape for just moment, as I reach for my green tea. I look back to find a blank screen, what gives, I turn it back to portrait and nothing. What’s so frustrating is I only read maybe the headline and the first one or two paragraphs, and nothing. I have swipe the app closed, and then everything refreshes, and I lose the article and possibly the wisdom of the writer, please fix, this drives me nuts!! Also I would like to add, please give the reader the opportunity to slow or pause the refreshing of the stories, in settings. To perhaps a 10, 15, 20, 30 minute refresh intervals. So this way I have the opportunity to read the article that I may have saw directly below the one I chose to read. Their is nothing worse than finishing the article, hitting the back arrow, seeing the refresh, and then trying to figure out where the article went, Apple news does this same annoying thing, however with Apple news if I am quick and I start to scroll down, it does not refresh as quickly.

I love Medium’s diverse variety of genres and subtopics. Medium’s writer base provokes deep thought in a way that differs from casual internet reading, including that on intellectual platforms. Medium’s writers are passionate about the topics that you’re passionate about reading, and it shows in their work. I love the stimulation, and the inspiration, that I have found on Medium.

Contamine's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/11/18 2:54 AM
Many writers offer more than they deliver. Some stories are overly long. Others meander off into unimportant details. Often, the writer doesn’t quite support their initial point. Sometimes it isn’t clear what the point even is. Then, just about the time you are about to toss it all off, somebody opens their heart and tells a story that really grabs you. Then you think what an amazing thing it is to be able share our lives with anyone, anywhere.

StonybrookTN's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/1/18 4:22 AM
If we are to stay in our lanes and pay homage to McLuhan’s witty “The medium is the message” meta criticism, we could dismiss the Medium platform as just another channel for the Internet’s amateur-izaton of media. But the proof is in the pudding. Spend twenty minutes scrolling Facebook or Twitter, then spend twenty minutes reading articles on Medium. There it is: content matters. And Medium delivers. And as far as UI and UX, we are dealing with next-level design with Medium. Sleek, intuitive and up to the task of allowing users to create the kind of quality online articles that make sharing nuanced thought possible in a world of distracted social media apps. You’ll open Medium to engage by reading, but you’ll find yourself starting and saving a draft for your own ideas. This is a writer’s app, disguised as a reader’s online magazine.
Black solo's Review of MediumReviewed on 8/1/18 2:54 AM
First issue is that the newsfeed is flooded with premium content and its very annoying for non premium members who want to just read free articles. Another issue on mobile is the code which is hosted on github. The size of the text is way too big making it hard to see the whole code.

While I enjoy the experience of a simple app to read and browse articles....I did discover that I sorely miss the ability to run a simple search on a word or phrase.

Caring is to be informed's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/3/18 3:42 AM
Sometimes reading work by journalists and writer that are genuine without diluting it. Makes me feel that I am getting the real news. I don’t have to like it or agree with it. But I want to have the opportunity to read it to inform myself. I told my 9 year old son who asked me , why I refer to my PHD holder friend as ignorant. I told him we all hold on to our beliefs and ideology. But my friend and refusals to learn from other with all the opportunity to learn. Has chosen to be ignorant . Medium rocks because I get to meet all kind of writers while learning a thing or two.

Jerrid H.'s Review of MediumReviewed on 7/29/18 8:11 PM
Many of the stories that are interesting are marked with a star, which indicates that you must pay for a subscription to read. I’m not sure how these stories are selected, but I’m guessing it’s based on readership (perhaps a proxy for demand?). There does not seem to be a filter for discovering stories that are free, or a clearly labeled category for them. It’s up to a non-paying user, while perhaps an active participant of the Medium writing community, to locate stories that they can read. At first glance it appears that Medium is a public, free platform that is user-driven, but after some time using the app I discovered that the its pseudo-liberal appearance is just that, an appearance.

Jgee12's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/26/18 7:38 PM
I guess this is a good app—I dunno: after reading 2.5 articles I was told, “You read a lot” by the app and that I’ve met my monthly number of free articles. Reading 2.5 articles doesn’t give a person a good feel for the app and its content, and help her/him decide whether to subscribe. A little more time and a less rapid transition to the point of sale would probably help not hurt.

To the developers: this app could be really great but you’re missing critical functionalities. Specifically, home feed navigation to favorite publications. I know what I like, I know who I want a daily publishing update from, but yet you are making it SO HARD for me to access those publications. I need more of an RSS feed type of experience from this app where I can more easily browse different categories and quickly access my favorite publishers. I can’t give higher than 2 stars if you guys can’t provide this very basic functionality.

evturn's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/25/18 4:43 PM
Tapping the “Open in app” button when reading an article on a mobile browser does not open the article in the app and instead opens the App Store where, assuming it has already been installed, if you then tap “Open” has long forgot about the article being read and simply launches the app and loads the home screen. If this is the expected behavior then perhaps the text should read something along the lines of “Get the app” to avoid causing this misdirection.

AGedela's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/24/18 12:13 PM
I’ve been using Medium for couple of years now. It helped me gain insights over varied subjects but, what changed is that I stopped using the website since using the app. It made reading and exploring content so much more easier. This app simply flows with your expectations without acting smart. I love it!
womcauliff's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/24/18 12:08 AM
Medium is a highly popular platform for software developers to explain concepts by sharing code snippets and examples. Lines of code typically extend beyond the width of a portrait screen, and require scrolling the code block back and forth repeatedly to view it all. Medium's app does not support landscape mode, which is the simplest solution to this user experience problem. It's disappointing that the experience of reading code is so poor on a platform which hosts so much discussion about software.
ckeedribble's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/23/18 8:26 AM
Love this app. Wish it had like a mag layout and you could turn the page through articles or skip to specific section through the index. Or create your own mag - it’d have a set layout but you could add or take out articles to flip through offline. I guess like make the book mark section more of magazine part where you could just endlessly flip through everything you saved like a mag.

hip-gnosis-dallas's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/23/18 12:04 PM
I used to use Facebook or linked In to look for ‘stuff to read’ to entertain myself. But, it was never fulfilling. Medium is organized by topic so I find what I want in seconds and the content is inviting to read. I always learn something, have an insight or laugh out loud. I close out the app Happy with the way I spent my time.
CWinChina's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/20/18 4:12 PM
Love Medium, but on the iPad app (iPad Pro 10.5 inch) when the screen rotates the view falls completely off the page and all the user is left with is a solid white page. Rotating the iPad back to the original orientation doesn’t solve the problem either.
DonDP's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/20/18 4:11 PM
I make time to read something more-than-just-useful every day. For years, New Yorker magazines have piled up on my nightstand and I always find something engaging inside. There is a thrill stumbling upon an extremely well-written article that takes us somewhere surprising or illuminates a complex issue. In the past weeks, Medium has replaced The New Yorker as my go-to source for that energy. The downside: I’m looking at a screen at bedtime - something I’ve been trying to avoid. The upside: my spouse might get her wish of a clear nightstand. Might. Right now, the pile is just growing.

Wow wow wow. It’s 4 in the morning and I woke up and picked up the you-know-what- iPhone and happened to tap on this app that I don’t even remember how I got and here I am reading an article by Wil Wheaton and then two and three and then that led to two or three or five articles by other fabulous writers and story tellers of real tales that inspired and/ or crippled their lives and how could I close the light and go back to sleep after being so awake by the inspiration of truth? I sent one article of Wil’s to my brother which I hope he shares with his wife and sons because it feels right. So, wow, this is a tremendous ‘Medium.’
N/A 1234's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/19/18 3:29 AM
Night mode needs to be further enhanced. The iOS Kindle app is the benchmark for night reading. **Motion Blur:** Add horizontal (left to right) reading mode like Kindle app - instead of the (current) vertical scrolling that produces a lot of motion blur and makes it difficult to read. See Kindle app for example. **Font Color:** Add other font colors (like grey) that reduce the brightness of the white text. See Kindle app for example. **Filter:** Introduce a night mode filter that reduces brightness further. See Kindle app for example. **First Launch:** Splash / First Launch screen needs to support night mode and not a bright white background. #Failure

They only want you to use the app so they can make their articles stop working unless you pay. When you want to just read a few articles per week that they email you about keep it in a browser so they can’t stock you.
Anomalogue's Review of MediumReviewed on 7/15/18 12:25 PM
Why does every social medium platform find it necessary to intent their own broken text editor? I just tried to select a whole response I wrote but it will only select one paragraph at a time. Unacceptable. It is easier for everyone, and most importantly for your users, to use standard UI elements. I won't use this app until this is fixed.

Medium is a great service to post and read (even though I have to use a CSS filter to hide the maddeningly-distracting floating “clap” hands, “open in app” button, etc.) Even more so, the release notes team (it’s a whole team, right?) has, after much strife, hit the sweet spot of “entertaining, succinct, and informative”. My congratulations to all. 🎉

I started using Medium on 2016 and I thought it was refreshing to read interesting posts from well educated minds. I was such a huge fan of it that I became a member on 2017 but it has been months that I don’t use the app as much as I used to. The reason why is because the app keeps constantly freezing on me. I sure hope the developers fix this soon. I know it’s the app because all of my other apps work perfectly.

ArseniyChern's Review of MediumReviewed on 6/9/18 10:49 AM
I really love this app. It has some of the best content I’ve seen online. I am definitely going to pull the trigger on a subscription. My only real gripe is that if I exit the app it clears the story I’m reading out of ram and then I have to try to find it again.. which takes forever, I would love a feature where it would save the current story you are reading and when you go back into the app it would just go to that last story by default. Also if you could add a history feature that would show your reading history.. that would also be awesome. But those are small nitpicks. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for some awesome and intelligent reading content!

Please, stop refreshing the app while I am reading something!

Luckyslizer's Review of MediumReviewed on 6/7/18 4:09 AM
I think that the app is a great idea and would be a great place for “sharing all ideas” as the app’s page states, but that simply isn’t true. Unfortunately I’ve noticed unfair censorship taken up twelve notches not only on traditional social media, but now on Medium as well. Conservative articles and speakers are suppressed, if not downright suspended, on the platform in a way that manipulated a reader’s mind in order to push an agenda. I’ll come back if something good happens about the topic, but as along as the devolution of freedom of speech continues on the platform I can’t stay with the app with a clean conscience

Golight Girl's Review of MediumReviewed on 6/6/18 11:08 PM
I now remember why I deleted this app. Omg it’s terrible. You go to write a new story, it doesn’t clearly indicate the title section. Then when I go to select all the text to instead copy it to the web version, I can’t select anything but the paragraph I’m on bc it’s hard breaks I guess. I suppose I’m very used to the web version, the app is a far miss from the functionality and ease of it. No idea why they’d make it different in any way in appearance or function. Probably Big Bad Apple. I’m going back to web version for iPad only. Will keep IPhone app only for comments and reading.

South_FL's Review of MediumReviewed on 6/20/18 5:09 AM
To begin, the quality of writing is incredible. It’s introspective, but not pretentious or exhausting. There’s a journalistic standard preserved within this space that seems to be disintegrating across the board into an infinite heap of clickbait and sensationalism. In this context, I applaud the minimalism behind the apps design and philosophy as well as the unadulterated opinion pieces of the writers (who come from all spaces). Furthermore, they provide interesting and alternative points of view on some of the most pressing matters facing us today. I don’t regret my subscription. Medium is a welcomed break from the onslaught of hysteria one may witness on Twitter or Facebook, or any other sites that dole out “news” to their users which often times leaves them feeling numb, angry and distracted. Conversely, after spending time on Medium, one comes away feeling enlightened and optimistic more often than not. In conclusion, $4.99 is a small price to pay for everything that you get in return as a reader. I highly recommend it.

I used to enjoy this app much more when every story wasn’t a members only preview. I used to read and enjoy spending time on Medium. Even going as far as writing a few articles myself. I find myself wanting to use the app and then as I scroll down the feed almost every story is a members only story. This is highly upsetting and disrespectful to the people who come on here to enjoy reading stories. Facebook and instagram are all free; it upsets me that medium just wants short term economics while jeopardizing user experience.

Cinimon's Review of MediumReviewed on 5/29/18 10:22 AM
I must admit having been a medium member for the past few years I can tell you I’m never let down by quality. Writers on this app have their own unique way of connecting their audience. I can only hope that this corporation continues it’s journey of innovation for future of us writers. One area in particular I would like Medium to consider looking into is allowing users to be able to have a history log of what they just read. I was reading a story this morning and accidentally backed out the article. I spent a good 25 minutes looking for it. Luckily I enjoyed the article so much I was able to remember the writer of the article and search him that way. Yes! I booked marked him. *So for those of you enjoying a read...”STOP” and bookmark it. I just recently purchased an iPad so still adjusting. Thank you again for the quality of reading material you allow the world to enjoy and here is too many more decades of advancement. Not only have you impacted my life personally, it’s allowed me to grow through others experiences. You can learn a lot of valuable life lessons on Medium.
gxorlando's Review of MediumReviewed on 5/28/18 3:57 PM
The platform works well until you realize that a lot of what is going is Progressives speaking to themselves in an nacho chamber on the paying side of the site with articles from other publications and authors who primarily represent the hardcore Progressive agenda, which is why many of us stay on the fringes or the unpaid side, since there is little balance on the paying side of the Fence. Medium has some very good authors on the Pay side, but they also have some down right bigots who do not deserve house room in that their logical and objective skills would get them a D at best in a College essay class since their research and background is abysmal, as well as their conclusions. But that might be said of a lot of journalists these days as well. So I refuse to pay to hear the same old same old, as much as I would like to participate in meaningful discussion, I see it seeping away on this site.

Randall E.'s Review of MediumReviewed on 5/23/18 12:55 AM
Mostly I like this app, I have even purchased a subscription. However, a major annoyance for me is that if I leave the app in the middle of an article and return to the app later it is not on the article was last reading. Really annoying. I read a lot of long technical pieces with code and I linger on them a while. Sure, I guess I could bookmark everything when I start reading, but sometimes I am interrupted unexpectedly and then lose the article. Of course, I am probably doing it wrong but I can’t see any resolution to this issue. I’ve trying logging in via my laptop browser and see if there is a reading history, but I don’t see one.

CloudFirst's Review of MediumReviewed on 5/18/18 3:35 PM
You think America (specifically the White, Male, Christian part of it) is the source of all the worlds problems. The content was ok a few years ago but over time I’ve seen authors banned, all their writings scrubbed, for positing lucid, well-crafted rebuttals to the often blatantly sexist and racist hard-left, group-think writings. If your beliefs lay anywhere to the right of hard left “content police”, your not welcome in this arena. Censorship over debate; the battle plan of the left.

I love medium and find great enjoyment in reading articles everyday so there was no hesitation to pay $5/month to be able to access more articles. The only feature I would recommend is, programming in to the app is an explore/topics section. Not only having the main page with one article from that topic that you’re interested, but being able to click an icon on the bottom and going to menu with all of the topics such as science or relationships or politics, etc. From there, being able to select that certain topic and see all articles from past and present. So that readers are able to have an opportunity to see more articles that they’re interested in at the moment.

Unfortunately, Medium has neglected its creative writing community, favoring current news, creative self-help, and identity politics above other genres, and burying the countless brilliant poets and fiction writers. Medium has also allowed its fantastic publication features to atrophe, to the extent of removing the ability to use custom domains. Instead, Ev has invested in bringing NYT, CNN, Bloomberg, Atlantic, and other left-leaning mainstream publications in, which the platform pushes aggressively in newsfeeds, pushing unique native Medium writers’ content into more obscure corners of the platform. I made decent money on a few of my works, early in the Partner Program, but over the last few months have had to completely demonetize my posts, as their visibility plummeted to single digits behind the paywall. I love writing and publishing on Medium, and I love the community and the high standards of dialogue and discussion. I’m also increasingly concerned about the platform’s censorship and control of dialogue, and the editorial control and gatekeeping of premium features (like audio). As a writer, I have yet to see Medium be anything close to a viable tool to get paid—unless you like writing self help or body positivity articles. I’d love to change this to five stars, and say it’s a great way to get paid. But it’s just not right now.

I would really like it if you had words that could be looked up in the dictionary. There are some words that I may not know but I click on them and click define and there is no definition. If you could possibly add in that database words, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Phredmur's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/28/18 10:29 PM
The Medium app is a bazaar of interesting topics and great writing. I don’t love everything I read or agree with all of the articles. As it should be in a community of thoughts and ideas.
spuram's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/27/18 8:02 AM
I go through the android posts for design patterns and android stuff The posts are very interesting and I find many interesting new things daily And based on my reading habits I get the same type of posts, which interests me in reading the posts

Please take time to remove the white loading screen when dark mode is enabled. Nothing like a bright flash to the eyes when the app starts to get me in the mood to read.
Let Your Inner Shine's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/24/18 7:28 AM
I feel like I learn so much from articles on here. Most articles are short and quickly digestible with nuggets of wisdom. Anyone can write in medium so it gives you a lot of personal perspectives from people you might not otherwise encounter. If you want to expand your worldview, I definitely recommend Medium.
Brosef87's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/24/18 4:45 PM
The concept and approach is great. HOWEVER ... the execution is NOT good. There’s no way anymore for me to easily access the particular magazines and topics that I care most about. For example, I love urban planning and want to go check out the latest articles on that topic and peruse recent articles from some top publishers in that genres. I literally have to go and search for those particular publications. Why? That’s so cumbersome! And not user friendly at all. You guys really need to revamp this app for a better UX/UI so that I can actually interact with it rather than having to scroll endlessly through my home feed until I find the stuff I care about.
xStarya's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/22/18 8:58 PM
I don’t need all the fancy extras and features of a lot of other sites. I just like to write and I want people to read what I write. I ignored Medium for so long. I was sure it wasn’t right for me. I decided to look again and found out I was wrong. I think this website is brilliant. I love the app as well. I can’t wait to get more into writing on here.
masochist_'s Review of MediumReviewed on 4/22/18 6:52 AM
2018-04-21 Update: The app gained a dark mode sometime recently, which is *far* more important than most developers realize. It is not just an aesthetic preference; it is an *accessibility feature* for some of us. All apps should support dark modes, and I am grateful the Medium developers have added this to their app. ... now if only I could change the icon as well... white is not my friend. Original review: In an industry where automation and algorithms are taking over everything except content creation (... mostly), Medium has remained human so far. That means it's imperfect in places and downright crappy in others. And that's the way it should be. From the hilarious release notes to the sometimes-awful content, Medium is human, and I would love for them to *stay* that way. On a more objective and less editorial note, a dark mode would really make this photosensitive human's reading experience a lot more comfortable. I mostly use the site these days because the app is such an overbearing blast of white that it causes difficulty for me.

A-photographer's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/20/18 4:48 PM
I'd been waiting for a long time to get a night mode and adjustable font on the app. Finally, they added them. So 5 stars.
N/A 1234's Review of MediumReviewed on 4/20/18 12:09 PM
Night mode needs to be further enhanced. The iOS Kindle app is the benchmark for night reading. **Motion Blur:** Add horizontal (left to right) reading mode like Kindle app - instead of the (current) vertical scrolling that produces a lot of motion blur and makes it difficult to read. See Kindle app for example. **Font Color:** Add other font colors (like grey) that reduce the brightness of the white text. See Kindle app for example. **Filter:** Introduce a night mode filter that reduces brightness further. See Kindle app for example. **First Launch:** Splash / First Launch screen needs to support night mode and not a bright white background.

Look, Medium is a truly fantastic app. The articles are interesting and helpful and the topics are easy to find. The design is simple and clean. It would be perfect, but Medium only lets you read a certain amount each month on the free version. Honestly, that is the worst ad of all.

I want to read the DOJ alumni statement on Medium but the signatories are not available to see on my iPhone. It says click here but the list is nowhere. So I try the app, which requires you to sign up or connect through Facebook or Google. Total waste of time. Your site and app are awful.

Zero stars. Following topics does absolutely NOTHING since you show me what you want anyway. I DO NOT want to see stuff that YOU think I want to see. I want to see things that actually interest me. Don’t download if you like reading things that interest you. You won’t get that option. Not sure what the point of topics are since I can’t see them.

Volvuspå's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/7/18 9:49 PM
Many great articles, but the news feed algorithm assumes that I always want to continue reading the same stuff I’ve read before. How about letting me choose what I want to read? A well organized menu to choose from, and less recommendations?
aayouni13's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/7/18 10:03 PM
I'm a Medium reader, I love the platform, the app is up to expectations; smooth and nice UI. But the aim of my review is to point out and to say thank you for the funny release notes that comes with updates, i really liked the one left in the gloves box on the Tesla Roadstar. I really appreciate the idea of adding character even to the simplest things, that may go with no one even noticing them. I simply wanted to say that I did notice.

Abe Rad's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/6/18 4:38 AM
First off I love what Medium is doing here. From a consumer of interesting writing, this is exactly what I want; no ads and very often articles that are interesting to me. The articles surfaced are improving as I use the service which is a good sign that what these people are doing with my usage is working. The app on the other hand has some nagging issues for those who use an iPad in landscape or simply prefer landscape mode regardless of device. This app is clearly designed to be used in portrait mode... yes it works in landscape but the layout doesn't really fit the screen most of the time, and has huge white margins on both sides. It's as if the designers decided rather than reflow the text, we'll just keep the same text width and add huge margins on the sides. Large pictures that are embedded within articles tend to be cut off when in landscape, but are sized nicely to fit within the screen in portrait. Even worse, as of the last update the app shows a blank white screen when switching from portrait to landscape. I know that this may come off as a bit of a quibble, and it is, but a large iPad Pro just isn't very comfortable in portrait, and anything with videos really should be in landscape anyway. Besides, the app did pester me for a review, so here you go... All in all, a great service and an app that is more than usable, just not 5 starts great... yet.

jmb030's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/5/18 3:47 PM
I like medium except for one thing. The annoying clap button is always there. I'd love to read an article in peace but it is a blight on the reading experience. To be clear, I don't mind clapping or having a button there some of the time. But don't make it stay there in place the entire time I'm reading. I'm trying to read here! I hate it so much that I stopped using the app. Unfortunately there's a constant "open in app" button if you do that. Not sure which is worse.

SpoonLanternBaseballPark's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/24/18 2:24 AM
There is a lot of time fragmentation in the modern world. Prior to downloading the medium app, I would often fill this time by reading Facebook. There is one major difference between Medium and Facebook, however. Reading medium makes me smarter. Reading Facebook makes me want to fight all my friends, family, and co-workers over often esoteric, ideological differences that truly have no bearing on reality or the ways that I interact with these people. In the end, I rather learn something I can use than learn that my favorite college math professor believes in trickle down economics. Download the medium app. Read it on the toilet or the train; read it at breakfast or lunch or whenever you feel the need to take a 5-7 minute break from the crushing weight of your day. Try it; you'll like it.
CurioSETI's Review of MediumReviewed on 3/23/18 7:53 PM

Medium is a great app. It offers wide range of topics to select from and follow (science, self-help, psychology, music, travel, technology, spirituality-to name a few). You can also customise what appears on your news feed, highlight your favourite lines and bookmark content you would like to revisit in the future. I am someone who enjoys reading and this app has got plethora of articles that are inspiring, informative and illuminating. I would totally recommend getting it. It's much better than mindlessly scrolling up and down on other social apps. You wouldn't be disappointed.

The Medium app is a little hard to navigate on occasion, but that comes from having such a broad selection of content. Most of the content is pretty high quality, although it may have fallen off a little with growth. Paid, exclusive content is easily worth it.

Stylist plus numbers's Review of MediumReviewed on 2/24/18 2:15 AM
I really enjoy reading on Medium. The community is surprisingly studious, curious, and open-minded compared to most other internet comment sections, and the estimated read-time at the top of every article and comment has surely spoiled me (I really notice the absence of this lovely feature when reading elsewhere). But the platform desperately needs at least a couple of important tweaks. Readers have access to only a few "exclusive stories" per month if they are not a paid subscriber. I am not a subscriber for several reasons, one of which is that I have found that most of this exclusive content isn't worth reading. Writers who believe their work is truly important want everyone to see it, even (and sometimes especially so) those of us living in poverty. I tend to think that many of these authors guaranteed pay by Medium know that their work isn't good enough to get them by on donations alone as it does for the talented authors who make their important work available to everyone. Having said that, there are a few exclusive stories I'd actually like to read, and I hate that Medium doesn't consistently make clear which ones are exclusive. In some places they do, and in some places they don't. After you've clicked on one of these stories, you simply get a notice that your tally of available exclusives for the month has decreased by one. I've accidentally clicked stories (usually due to device lag or a finger slip) I have zero interest in to consequently lose a chance at reading something I might actually like. After reading an article, redirects to related articles are listed at the bottom. Sometimes, I click on one I'm partially interested in (maybe just wanting to know how long it is to decide if I want to dedicate that amount of time to an only slight interest, or maybe to read a paragraph or two to see if its good enough to keep my attention) only to find that I've lost yet another of my month's allotted exclusives on something I likely won't even fully read. These redirects at the bottom of articles are not labeled as exclusives, so that surely needs to be fixed, but I don't think this is the only necessary fix. A yes/no prompt absolutely needs to be present before moving on to any exclusive story, preferably at the bottom of the first paragraph or whatever other arbitrary spot Medium decides gives the reader a fair idea of what type/quality of article is to follow. Any time a non-subscriber is directed to an exclusive story, this type of warning should pop up letting them know that this is an exclusive and giving them this option of whether to continue reading and use up an allotted free exclusive story for the month. UPDATE: With Medium's new email format, exclusive stories are no longer explicitly denoted in any of the suggested content contained therein, worsening the problem described in my initial review. UPDATE 2: Now that Medium has jumped on the censorship bandwagon, showing that they don't value free speech, this platform is utterly useless for anyone not looking to be trapped in the corporate propaganda echo chamber. I will be abandoning it and supporting any authors I had followed on their other platforms. It seems the day is quickly approaching that the corporate/government media will have strangled any "unapproved" free speech other than what can only be gotten by adding oneself to these brave authors' email lists.

So often, I am recommended movies on Netflix or "suggested" articles on countless news websites. I found that the vast majority of such suggestions are wrong and unhelpful. I'm not sure how Medium does it, but they do it right. While not every highlighted or suggested article fits my needs, they are closer to achieving this goal than any other company I have come across. I have learned an incredible amount about web development using this app. It has become an essential resource for my job. As a result, it will be the first application I install when upgrading my iPhone.

eAgent's Review of MediumReviewed on 2/14/18 3:59 PM
Medium saved blogging. I've been active since Typepad was cool. And was finding Facebook a little funky for long form content. Medium has an intelligent approach to your content. It's beautiful. And the communities are less walled garden. More open forum. You'll also discover, like Quora, a one-degree of separation from almost anyone you admire. That's a surprising benefit. I hope it remains quality. So far, it's my daily read. Update August 5, 2016: better than ever. The platform has become the toto spot for my WebNutrients.com crew to inspire and learn. Yeah! Update: November 5, 2017: Medium is only getting better. The only thing lacking is effortless import of content via search results (for both commenting and curation). And series don't yet work on iPad. Otherwise, it's perfect. Still.

And no, I’m not a girl. I’m a 70-year old woman. I don’t follow Instagram, don’t have a Twitter account. I do have a website. I’m not a techno-phobe. But I read postings on only two sites: Brain Pickings by Maria Popova and Medium. Why? Popova’s site connects literature and philosophy in astounding ways. The graphics on the site, usually from a book under review, are insightful and gorgeous. But Medium has the advantage of multiple voices and the ability to tailor topics to what most interests me. But just when I think I know what “interests me,” I’ll find a story on Medium on a different topic and decide that interests me too! I love that people are writing so powerfully and connecting their thoughts with others. Medium has inspired me to become a regular contributor.

Women are Waking Up's Review of MediumReviewed on 11/3/18 10:37 PM
All I have to say is WOW! I have pretty much stopped reading every day newspapers online. I recently came across an article that was the Medium site. I couldn’t get enough and read other articles. Seriously so good and so happy to have become a member. It’s helping me expand my knowledge of so many things. Thank you Medium

I like using the mobile version to update and edit my posts.
Targetindicator0's Review of MediumReviewed on 11/17/18 12:30 PM
I used to love Medium, & fairly recently. It seems that 8/10 articles it chooses to show me are behind a paywall now. I have had a paid membership before & was planning to get one again when I could afford it but not any longer. Having some exclusives that require payment is reasonable & understandable but there is so much short crap that you are now expected to pay for & it’s almost all they show you. I rarely check this site/app now that it’s like this. I doubt it will ever revert.

1. Currently there is no way to find articles you’ve read in the past unless you’ve bookmarked them or you’ve clapped at them. There should be a reading history menu in the You tab. 2. Add the ability to use different fonts. For people who prefer sans serif fonts :(

Goodbye Apple news, or checking in with 5 or more individual outlets. Hello one-stop shop. That I can TRUST. Great user algorithms keep me in meaningful content instead of distractions. Super resource.

It is a pain to open up the app and see the loading page every single time....
Sempil's Review of MediumReviewed on 11/11/18 5:28 PM
That you are required to login to see if this works. That is a Very big turnoff.
Vincent Jenks's Review of MediumReviewed on 11/1/18 12:46 PM
I think Medium itself is fantastic. Easily the best blogging platform ever, but the app just gets in the way. I read a ton of tech news and much of it comes from Medium. Every time I tap a link, I don’t want to be forced to launch the app, I just want to read it in my browser, be able to bookmark it, or just keep it open in a tab for later. More than any other app I’ve seen, this one just gets in your face. It’s obnoxious, so I always end up removing it, be it iOS or Android. Logging in via the browser, there’s nothing I can’t do in the app, so it’s useless to me anyhow. I gave it two stars because the app is well built and does it’s job, otherwise I would have given one for how forcefully I’m driven to it.

I love this. Always something new to read.
JanJohnsonPhoto's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/9/18 10:01 PM
The Medium App is great... it constantly provides reliable access to entertainment, enrichment, and for me, what has turned into “daily required reading.” The content available makes Medium the best $5 I spend each month (subscription cost.) It is worth considerably more; and the App works great as well.
Our Guest's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/8/18 7:32 AM
Too often the app restarts (with the same repetitive splash screen), dumping the user at the main dashboard, rather than the previous article in session.
Tango32's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/7/18 1:46 PM
Medium is one of my favorite apps, it is very well designed and there is always something interesting to read. I like that the pieces have read times so you know how long a read your getting into.
P mudpies's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/7/18 12:39 AM
I am thoroughly enjoying the articles on Medium. It refers me to articles that it can tell I am interested in by my reading history. Medium tells me how long it will take to read an article. I can easily email an interesting article. The writers actually get paid. The site measures interest in each article by the number of claps it receives, and divides the money from APP subscriptions among the authors. Great site.
Fitztacular's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/6/18 4:28 PM
Articles linked to in the standard Medium email digest will not open in the app upon clicking an article in the email. It simply opens the app and points me to the homepage. On an iPhone X with iOS 12.0.

Wolfie10,000's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/4/18 2:08 AM
Very awkward app to use. App scrolls down so you read it like an article or newspaper, not a book. And those awful clapping hands never disappear. I deleted app after five minutes.

Iphone&98's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/25/18 5:28 PM
I recently discovered Medium. I started reading very interesting posts on this website and I decided to download this app and give it an opportunity, which is something that I almost never do. Result: I like this app but one thing. I discovered that the option to play audio wasn’t incorporated on the app (I try to find it but I couldn’t), which is something that on the website it is available. There is the reason of why I give 4 out of 5 stars. I hope the developers read this review and incorporate the audio feature because I actually enjoy it especially when I am on the move, and I want to listen to something productive. Then I would change the review to 5 stars. By the way, I’m glad that it doesn’t have adds, otherwise I’d have to uninstall it like I’ve done it with with many other apps.
mrgrafix's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/25/18 10:36 PM
In a lot of instances I’m just attempting to either bookmark a article for later or scanning the front page however, in the last couple of releases it lags on the first page, no loading sign, no indicator, it just sticks for a while.
divyavegesina's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/23/18 8:01 PM
I love the app. There are so many helpful articles written by people who know that they are doing. There are various topics you can read on. Whenever I want to find a certain subject, it does not take long for me to find a great piece on it. Absolutely love it 💙.

*#%@&!'s Review of MediumReviewed on 10/22/18 12:10 PM
I actually enjoy Medium a lot. My problem is that you can’t seem to contact them in any way, shape or form, to ask questions about things. In my case: there seems to be no recognition of the fact that I’m a subscribed member— read: have paid for this—yet keep receiving messages that I need to upgrade to membership to continue reading, or conversely, that there was an error restoring my purchase. If anyone has successfully navigated this labyrinth, please reach out with your secrets...
Paulszh's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/21/18 5:39 AM
It‘s doesn’t make any sense that I cannot look at the history of the article that I just read in the app
Namith's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/21/18 4:56 AM
Love medium! Then why 3 star you may ask ? Here is a use case i want you to tackle. A guy doing the dishes ! What keeps me going ? Listening to the beautiful stories via medium audio. But at the end of the story...it just stops ! I then have to stop everything i am doing and go open the app again and play the next story. My hands are wet, i am already frustrated and now i have to do this.Why dont you provide an option to automagically play the next one in the list ? Thank you.
XXBolgxX's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/20/18 4:59 AM
Medium used to have good recommendations and an almost decent search capability. Thats not true anymore. It's impossible to find good content and the recommended content is truly aweful. My Medium account is now a glorified bookmark for stories that I find elsewhere which happen to be posted to Medium.

thegiftler's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/18/18 4:30 PM
Love how easy it is to just read one or two articles on the train. Most are well written by actual experts. And there’s no ad junk or click-baity crap to hook you into spending more time with the app than you intend to.
MsContradiction's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/17/18 4:20 AM
I have found Medium to be almost like a sacred space... I have discovered writers who write with such raw authenticity about compelling and important issues. I have also been inspired to write again because of this site. The articles on Medium are interesting, insightful, thought-provoking, and valuable. I highly recommend Medium. It is unique.

Princechawla's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/14/18 5:54 PM
I know that there are free articles to read on medium. But on the app, everything that is recommended is a paid article. The past couple of days, all articles I have clicked are paid articles. Recommendation should be based on my reading history and not on what makes more profit. If the recommendation set intersects with the one that needs upgrade, that is fine, but that’s not the case with this app. Deleting the app. Thanks a lot.
Basketballogy's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/14/18 2:27 PM
I tried the Medium app and prefer reading Medium articles in the browser. For one thing, the app doesn't support swiping right from the edge to go back. Unfortunately, Medium doesn't use a conventional username and password login. Instead, when you want to login so you can follow an author, Medium sends you a so called "Magic Link." What genius thinks users want to leave the reading experience they are happily immersed in, and go to their mail client and open an email just so they can log onto the website they are already on? 🤔 What's worse, the "magic link" never logs you in so you can read from your browser. Instead, the link insists on opening the Medium app. In short, on an iPad Pro, which is an ideal way to read, you can never login to Medium in the browser. Because it is easier for me to read from an iPad than from a laptop or a desktop screen, the net result of Medium's misguided magic link is that I don't read Medium is much as I otherwise would.
NonchalantSmoke's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/11/18 5:25 AM
Had some good reads while on this app Until I opened it up today and found out that you can only read 4 stories per month unless you pay $5 fee to keep reading. Uninstalled, searching for a new FREE reading app
skuimsc's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/11/18 4:25 AM
I don’t want to give you my Google/Facebook/my main email address. My second email address won’t work because I can’t open that address on my phone. Now I becomes suspicious why I have to give you some of my privacy to use this.
Ms Foodie's Review of MediumReviewed on 10/1/18 9:45 PM
You can read 2 more articles for FREE THIS MONTH!!!!! Well how many do I get to read? Does it waste a free read if I have went back to the same article. When did this LIMIT THING go into affect? Why pay for any read online when there is so much amazing reads FOR FREE!!!!
Lesiva2's Review of MediumReviewed on 1/31/18 1:57 PM
The "Rate us on the app store" link is broken. This happened with iOS 11. Needs update, preferably to Apple's new SKStoreReviewController! Medium is great!
witless fool's Review of MediumReviewed on 1/27/18 6:43 PM
No control over title, subtitle, publishing timing, etc. Allows you to jam text in and projectile vomit it out to the world. I use medium bc it’s free and it’s supposed to be a journalism platform. Though the more I use it, the more I hate it. I’m likely to just head back to Wordpress.com.
BlueJSmith's Review of MediumReviewed on 1/27/18 6:42 PM
I have several cable news & newspaper apps on my phone, but I frequently find myself selecting Medium when I need something different and interesting to read. Good stuff.
