Everything is great, except one HUGE thing - screen auto refreshing 3/5
Why in the hell it refreshes itself when I comeback to read article after I’ve switched to another app? (and article is gone to nowhere). This is so annoying and piss me off every time.
Love it 5/5
Well curated and recommended articles. All the topics I care about.
Vine is this? 5/5
Go on the web and search vine.co then open in app then it will take you here BOOM vine is this
Doesn’t sync drafts between devices 3/5
I’ve been working on a draft on my desktop, switched to mobile one day, and those changes never got synced with my desktop. It lead to some confusion and duplicate work... pretty frustrating. Also, I would like the option of picking up where I left off when reading a longer story.
Where have you been all my Life? 5/5
This site not only entertains it informs and most importantly makes you think about things. It also documents what others are saying so you get an idea of what others think. This is not to say that it's hearsay but that it has been backed up by data. If you are not into data driven ideals then you can pick your interests. It's up to you! You can also contribute your own published content.
Always something interesting 4/5
Although at times too quirky for my taste, it's rare that I can't find something interesting to read here.
Great content, decent app 4/5
The big thing to know about the app is that if you’re reading something and go to another app to do something, and when you come back to Medium it has to be restarted, you’ll lose the article you were reading. Unless you bookmarked it for some reason, there’s literally no way to find it unless you remember the title or author name. This happens fairly frequently and it’s inexplicable that they don’t hook into the iOS API that tells them the app is about to be moved to the background to simply save a reference to the article you’re reading in case the app gets restarted by the OS.
Some minor performance issues, like waiting to start lazy loading of images until they're in view. The worst part is probably no landscape support on iPad.
Very interesting 5/5
I'm glad that there's so many interesting things to read and that there's no ads to ruin the experience. I do wish that members only stories would eventually become available to everyone, but I understand why they are there.
Just the right motivation. 5/5
Helps me go through those tough days all the time whenever I feel like giving up on work. 5 stars do its creators
I have a reading disability and the iOS screenreader is my crutch. 1/5
This app is the only one I have that will not read an article from start to finish. After a two finger swipe down the first few paragraphs are read but then the reader stops 🤨
A creative nirvana 5/5
You will find topics of your interest and words of inspiration. No doubt about it.
Awesome App 5/5
Got tired of reading the same old news articles so I gave this a try. Ever since I downloaded it it’s the first app I open when I use my phone. It never disappoints, there is always something good and interesting to read.
Incredible way of describing an error 5/5
I never thought I would enjoy reading the description of the enhancements and bugs fixed of an app. The description of version 3.12 is just awesome. Keep going!
Making me pay to read??? 2/5
As a reading platform I don’t think I am willing to pay to be able to read certain articles. I’d rather go to different platforms. Calling it support for writers is just masking it.
I love opening Medium in the morning to read whatever I am in the mood for. Sometimes serious, sometimes sad, usually politics and race related, and sometimes looking for sweet and funny articles. I love Medium - it has it all!
Best long for blogging platform, and community, in the known universe. 5/5
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.
So far so good 5/5
Makes cruising Medium easy!
Love it 4/5
But don’t like the washed out icon/logo.
Pure quality 5/5
Excellent app for a high-quality platform.
Medium is awesome 5/5
Medium is where it's at! No pressure to show up to the trends that are on other social media sites. More personal than anything Ive used on my phone or computer. Great for coffee shop or quick thought writes, or just plain enjoyment for writing and reading. Other people clap for your story if you choose to post your work publicly :) #goodbecauseitbringssupportandprivacy
There is so much I could say about this app. At times in my life when I needed help and out of no where the perfect blog would appear and not just any blog post these were post that I felt a deep emotional connection with. Whenever I hear someone talking about blogs I always tell them about this app. One word sums up this app TRUTH
By Can't send cz evry name takn
Pretty much the only place I go on my phone to read and feel satisfied leaving.
Good for reading, not for writing 1/5
The drafting and editing experience is buggy at best.
It repeats line breaks and deletions in process at random.
I'm obsessed with Medium 5/5
There is no better source for innovative writing and unique perspectives on news stories than Medium. Creating a custom feed based on your interests - regardless of how varied they may be - is very satisfying and holds my attention way longer than almost any other app.
How do I remove all paid subscription from my feed? 1/5
How do I remove all paid subscription from my feed? That’s annoying! If I wanted to see “Economist” articles, I’d download the app. Not to mention that some of the locked articles you read and wonder why in the world the want money for something which is free all over the Internet?!
Great app 5/5
Rather than Reddit, I use medium to get my daily information.
Good variety of subjects 4/5
I appreciate the variety of topics and especially the minutes rating, which I've not seen elsewhere.
Please make github work 1/5
Right now, any articles that have embedded Github snippets just show the link, which kind of defeats the purpose.
Dislike new home screen and claps 2/5
I waited a couple days to see if the feeds improved but the new home screen is horrible in my opinion. I have tried adding new interests but the content is not as current and it is harder to get to what I want to read. Really disappointed.
Also claps are in a horrible place. I’ll clap something when trying to scroll then click it to try to unclap and end up adding another clap. No apparent way to go back. Very bad user experience.
Amazing app 5/5
Get app with a variety of topics that everyone will enjoy. Highly suggest checking it out. Very informative
Just get this there’s no debate this is the better version of Reddit, Upworthy, and any other trendy consumer blog style site
Share link doesn’t work 2/5
By Birdsong Man
Hey, Medium, when are you going to fix the iOS Share link to Flipboard?
Clean and simple. 5/5
By Carolina de Allende
Reading material is Medium's stock in trade. There is a lot of it on the site and little of it is completely stupid. Five stars for that. It would be hard to provide a bird's eye view of all those words, so though it lacks that desirable feature, I won't fault the app for not offering one. I hope they give it a shot in the further, though. Meanwhile the ads are ignorable and the pages are clean and simple. Reading is allowed.
Good app, and I subscribe... 3/5
By Raymond Brigleb
But bring back San Francisco, yo. Charter? Please. We can do better!
Bring back San Francisco Font! 5/5
By Drew Pitchford
Please bring it back as an option. That way everyone wins.
Mi piace molto 4/5
Fin qui tutto bene.
Love the App! 5/5
Can we get a dark theme with auto night mode please? :-)
It's just as enjoyable reading Medium on the app as it is on a desktop. Great app!
I stumbled upon Medium a few months back and I absolutely love it. A great variety of articles from across a broad spectrum of writers. I am a premium member and enjoy the member content and audio versions of stories I don't have time to read myself. The claps are a little goofy but it's a way to reward the authors you enjoy the most.
It just works 5/5
Medium opens doors and gets out of the way. It just works!
Great app 5/5
Medium is a great site with great writers that offer lots of valuable stories and insights.
By It’s I
Why would I want to be forced see what other people have highlighted?
Why would anyone build a service without an option to turn this feature off?
Why would anyone place a large icon over the very content that readers are using the app for?
There is good content on Medium and I’d love to support their writers, but reading on a phone screen is already hard enough. Having to put up with unwanted noise litererally covering up the text I’m trying to read is too much.
Enjoy the content and reading experience 5/5
Medium is one of my favorite product so far, because of its quality content and relevantly 'quiet' reading experience. One suggestion on the mobile app is that when trying to highlighting the words next to screen edge, the system prioritize altering screen rather than allowing the highlighting to be done. That's not very helpful for highlighting.
Intuitive & lightweight, ideal for mobile 4/5
Writers and readers both benefit from the Medium app's simple, intuitive format. The minimalist layout is a strong fit for mobile, while giving writers plenty of open space to write. Social features include ability to clap for quality work, to follow favorite authors, and to provide comments. The most powerful and unique feature may be its highlight capability, where readers can highlight favorite passages, and even comment on them. Medium's app isn't perfect, and it's still evolving. But it provides a great platform for posting ideas as content, and getting feedback on it. Two thumbs up.
Good app -- 5/5
My experience is somewhat limited, but to date I have found the app to be smooth and mostly straightforward. I'm a little uncertain about the 'clap' system, but I'm sure there is a manual or FAQ that explains it. // I notice that one of the other reviewers has complained (in their title; I haven't read the full review yet, and I don't know whether they were running the current version of the app) about the comment system, but I just used it and found it reasonably intuitive. [I'm writing this on 2017-1009.] // If content is of any significance or relevance in an app review, I can note that I follow and enjoy several people, including but not limited to Jean-Louis Gassée and Jim Burrows.
Missing this feature 5/5
I bookmark a lot of articles so that I can read them later. I also bookmark some articles because they’re great articles and I enjoy re-reading them from time to time.
Perhaps you guys could add a feature that shows what articles were already read and what articles weren’t (put a fade over already read articles for example).
I would not recommend allowing us to create categories like instagram does. This does not make things easier.
Love Medium though!
Awesome articles...love it!! 5/5
It's become my go to app for a quick read.
A cool tool for knowledge and engagement 5/5
By Phil open
Medium is a fantastic tool for quality engagement and knowledge transfers. It's the stories that connect the dots between philosophical understanding and practice
Hate the new layout 2/5
By Cherice B
This went from an app I used daily to one that I wont use at all. Absolutely hate the new home page feed. It shows only 3 or so stories per topic and requires you click for more. Furthermore, those home page stories are rarely refreshed. What a shame...
