Quick reads that enhance 5/5
By hyper negative
Love this app that I can read anywhere with insight to all current thinking and news .
By iPhone lvr1999
I love reading Medium in the afternoon. Seeing through different perspectives helped me expand my thinking.
HORRIBLE login process! 1/5
Do you really need to send an email link EVERY TIME I need to log in?????? And then you send me a link that expires 15 minutes later??? Let me log in w/ a password from a recognized device and browser or all. Get wid it, Medium!!! Everything else is great, just not your login process!!
Lots of passionate writers 5/5
Such a great place to grow and share ideas, coming from some of the brightest minds. Since there’s no financial or business incentive for many writers on here, their true voice can really come out.
Will happily pay $5 a month!
Awesome App 5/5
By I can monitor my kids now
Brilliant. Just Brilliant is all I can say. Amazing work ,keep it up.
I think I subscribed to medium by mistake and boy was I angry when I saw it on my credit card bill. Then I started reading it and boy am I happy I made that mistake I look forward to it every day especially John Weiss
If You’re a Writer Beware 3/5
Medium is a great site and I recommend it to anyone willing to listen but if your planning on writing articles this app has a glaring omission.
The current app does not allow for importing pictures from unsplash. This is a major pain as pictures are an important part of an article. Importing on a desktop computer is seamless but impossible on an iOS device.
With the increased power of the iPad Pro line there is no excuse for this omission.
Thoughtful, helpful Articles 5/5
Two days in, and I am very pleased with the well-thought-out, pleasant articles I’ve read. I like the quiet, ad-free environment. Nice!
Miss the Old App & Medium 1/5
The layout of the Medium app on iPad used to be more like their website, with topics to scroll through and explore like a magazine. Now it’s more focused on boxing you in with whatever they serve you, algo-driven (and not a very good one) suggestions. There’s not even a top menu to search topics—you have to scroll down to a fill-in space that has a few suggested topics. I open this thing now and feel completely lost. How do I just explore anymore? And anytime I click on a suggested article, which are all I can find really, it just confirms their bias that I like it. Please stop assuming you know what I need and let me explore more easily, like on your website.
You can't get rid of it !! 1/5
The app itself is decent for reading material,... but beware!!
Once you decide to TRY and delete,... they just keep on billing you month after month.
Borderline scam !!!
My go to app for long form reading 5/5
By Arthur Menezes
Great selection of long form articles and essays, a beautiful clean UI. Perfect app for reading!
Moving into my favs folder for current reading. 4/5
Based of the last few week it’s well on the way to becoming one of my several go-to reading sources. That means it’s moving into the company of NYT, BBC, NPR, The New Yorker, etc. And I love the idea of supporting up-and- coming writers with the clapping system.
Pay for the upgraded subscription and it DOESN’T WORK! Paid for an upgrade so I could read stories and articles offline. DOES NOT WORK! Still prompts me to upgrade to read the next chapter. Still no offline capability. Save your time, don’t bother with the premium subscription. What a hassle
Awful, useless notifications 3/5
I think rather than telling me about stories that match my interests medium tells you to read stories they want you to read. Recently realized notifications from the app are awful. Now on my “Delete Next list.”
21st Century Tech 🤓 5/5
Simple yet spectacular !!!
AMAZING platform, bad app ! 1/5
For weeks now whenever I click a medium link in iMessage / WhatsApp, it opens the medium app. But not the article. Everyone else has figured this out ! Especially with the $5/month payment, this is frustrating.
Love Medium 5/5
This app is really well designed and stable. Easy to navigate and a pleasure to use. Hats off to the whole development team.
Not Only Great Business Advice; It’s So Easy to Share 5/5
Many of the articles have top-notch observations on how to be more productive. Combine that with just two clicks to share via an email PRE-POPULATED with Subject and Link, and you gotta love this website!
Missing Offline Content 3/5
Why such an app does’t provide a way to save content for offline access???
Best learning source 5/5
I’ve never enjoyed using an app to discover and learn new things about anything and everything. Great product. Wish I could tag what I saved and wish the highlighted parts could be rendered as a new summary doc.
Let us categorize bookmarks 4/5
Mostly amazing, but I’d like to be able to organize my bookmarks and highlights by category so they’re easier to intentionally review later 🙏
Like Pinterest boards or instagram collections.
Great app limited by unrealistic restrictions 4/5
By Setu Kathawate
I love Medium. It has helped me learn so many things and it’s my go-to app/website whenever I’m curious. However, the 3 articles/month restriction for certain articles is extremely annoying. Not that I don’t want to pay for good writing, but there has to be a better way of handling those 3 restricted articles. Maybe give me the choice to decide which 3 I read. Otherwise, medium has helped me improve my own writing and share my learnings with the world.
Enjoy the articles 5/5
Enjoy the diverse topics and articles here, reading one article in the morning has become my ritual now. I like the feature that suggest the time to read an article 😊
Problem with split screen 4/5
The app goes unresponsive in spit screen and you can’t see highlight in dark mode
Love it, my first day of purchase but been using for a while 5/5
By Sam Dinan
This app makes me a better person and I am working from j myself daily
You will love reading 5/5
Quality in almost every article. I love reading even more with the quality selection Medium offers I have growth at my sight every day.
Free reads 3/5
By G. Rolle
I don’t like having to pay for more articles.
Amazing app 5/5
Medium is a really great way to expand you knowledge on a very big range of topics. Virtually every topic you could think of is on medium, I would really recommend getting this app.
EXCELLENT SEARCH ENGINE 5/5
The most efficient tool I use to start researching anything!
Did you know? 5/5
Well this app is where you will find it. Well written pieces of science and knowledge that is at your fingertips. Everything the internet promised Finally! Pick a subject and enjoy learning.
MEDIUM FRESH, SHARP, DIVERSE 5/5
Medium brings the world to me in diverse voices, styles and content. It grabs my attention to read more of each type than I would have read and keeps me top of the page filling my idle moments.
Do it. 5/5
It’s absolutely worth the subscription. Great articles that are pertinent, to the point and, most importantly, not a waste of your time. Do yourself a favor subscribe to this wonderfully curated service.
Great content created by great people 5/5
This is a great platform that surfaces great writings.
Worthwhile reading 5/5
The content on Medium is creative and interesting. Authors reflect their passions in well written articles that are both enjoyable and bite-sized. Worthwhile reading.
How to read for free: open the article in safari or whatever you use. You get two free reads. Then Clear out your cache and browsers history, wash rinse and repeat.
Need a history feature 4/5
I would love to see a feature in this app that shows past history. You should also consider implementing a continuous experience. Last night I started readying an article and this morning I could not find it. I know it is important to show the reader their “Daily Read” every day but readers should always be able to get back to where they left off.
Great app otherwise.
Some good articles, but the interface is a nightmare 1/5
By Boston Based Bill
Be prepared to go through a tortuous process of signing in, getting an email and following a second sign in link every single time you return to the app. Barely worth the trouble.
Misleading membership 1/5
I loved this app as soon as I downloaded it and a few days later I can’t find a single article I can read without paying for the subscription. Why do you offer a free option for membership when there appears to be no free content? Or tell us how to find the free content. At least offer a longer trial period. I might be happy to pay but it would be nice to try it out for a bit.
Poor Service. 1/5
I just cancelled my subscription. I had upgraded. Money was removed from my acct on June 9. I still don’t have access. The biggest frustration is that I can’t get an answer or even acknowledgement that something is wrong. I have tried many times over the last 2 weeks. I am ignored. Very poor service.
Best I’ve Seen 5/5
Nothing, nit even Apple news, can top Mediums platform.
Great for gaining knowledge outside of the mainstream 5/5
I really enjoy using this app, I mainly use it to learn things I wouldn’t normally learn on a normal news or journal app. Definitely recommend it if you enjoy learning random things under a general topic
Love It 5/5
The best I ever spent on a service. I love the quality content!
Joe Bob says two thumbs up! 5/5
Medium has cracked the tough nut of providing quality writing without having ads present. They deserve your support. The app is great, and the content is well worth the $5 per month that it cost to subscribe!
Real voices, real writing: short reads that feed the brain 5/5
By Fengshuieverything Alexa
Medium is a refreshing oasis of new voices we get to vote in support of, or not. No spin of note; facts that we can check; ideas to keep our brains alive and functioning more optimally. I for one take daily measures in the care and feeding of my neuroplastic brain, that so far defies aging, thanks to shaking it out of its old grooves continuously, and reading widely like this helps. The content is always relevant, sometimes ordinary/extraordinary zen, and never fails to be engaging in Medium’s variance of subject matter alone.
Great app, great way to express yourself and learn from others perspective.
Hit or miss 3/5
I’m not sure the quality of the writing is always high enough — or it could be the lack of an editor. Even a copy editor would help.
Many subjects 5/5
By jj gatt
Many sources of information of many subjects. Including science journals to personal blogs. Well worth $5.00 a month if you want to stay informed and also enjoy relax reading also , many choices of what you want to read.
Medium feature creature 4/5
Like all online forums Medium must fight the temptation to cater to clickbait and sheep herding.
The scare-em-and-sell-em story, the half-baked conspiracy, The propaganda piece disguised as a personal story, they all get published in Medium.
But why and how do they get top billing? That’s not good.
Money money 1/5
This is also making money
