App Reviews

  • History is necessary for accidental page close outs.

    By Cinimon
    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.
  • Love this app but I don’t like all the crashes

    By No_gluten
    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.
  • Incredible. Worth Subscribing.

    By South_FL
    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.
  • Truly inspiring, and practically useful

    By Kyn Sage
    I use Medium every day. Usually I just click on my personal suggestion notifications! And I go from there. Sometimes I have a specific topic in mind, and search & browse until I inevitably find something useful and thoughtful(quick experience!). There are so many dedicated and bright minds writing on medium about what they know best, and I couldn't be happier or more pleased to have found a place they like to congregate for the benefit of anyone who wants to be a part of it. Topics upon topics, minds upon minds, growth upon growth. If you want to use it to your best, personalize your experience as much as you can, learn as quickly as you can(easily done!), and be open to the luck of your life experience to find what you need. Thank you Medium! Edit: I do feel I need to also mention that while I do admire the platform, I do have an issue with app restarting after being held in the background for a short time. I've missed out on several articles because of this, and it's sucky. Stars down from 5 to 4. Still pretty cool
  • Medium DELIVERS the Message

    By StonybrookTN
    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.
  • Accessible as Facebook, but not as stupid

    By SpoonLanternBaseballPark
    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.
  • Great content, decent app

    By Mike3292
    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.
  • Like learning? Enjoy great writing? Lack free time or impatient?

    By PussKrook
    You'll love Medium. Medium collects and consolidates top news articles covering every conceivable subject from breaking headline news to myriad categorically specific topics, e.g, latest news in behavioral psychology, tech, science, astronomy, computer coding, etc. Choose whatever topics you're interested in and Medium will list every related article for you. Short on time? No sweat, Medium lets you know how long it takes to read each article. Create reading lists, follow your favorite authors, and upvote articles you like. The app's platform is super user friendly too. Stop reading this review and download Medium, you won't regret it!! (NOTE: Medium had 22k five star ratings when I downloaded it three years ago — why only 500 reviews in Dec 2017?!)
  • Conservative libertarian

    By gxorlando
    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.
  • I love it.. mostly

    By ArseniyChern
    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!
