  • Medium is time well spent

    By Mariochampion
    For a couple of months now I ve replaced 90% of the time I would have spent on Facebook, with actually useful enlightening meaningful reading -- both for skill development and a kind of deeper journalism meets editorial opinion insight. It's one of the best tech decisions for personal happiness I ve made in years.
  • Worth a read and write

    By bwarburton
    I know I shouldn’t spend time reading just because They are writing, but the stuff on Medium is better than Twitter. Or Facebook
  • Deleting my series and using app for text only (if at all)

    By Reader1718
    The image upload problems are persisting and many of the photos aren’t on my phone anymore, and you can’t upload images to Medium from your computer! Booo!😡🤬😠👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 I will be using this app less often now and not doing any more series unless they’re words only because of this major problem! Shame on you for not fixing this after having multiple complaints about it!
  • Medium is Large...

    Great app. One day I’ll probably figure out how to use all its various features.
  • So good

    If you are interested in understanding those around us, or improving ones self you must use Medium
  • Meaningful Suggested Articles Makes Medium Essential

    By spw5235
    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.
  • Best long form blogging platform, and community, in the known universe.

    By eAgent
    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 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.
  • A gem mine for readers and writers

    By Jorgeobh85
    I never knew this app existed until I stumbled onto it in the App Store. I must say this app is amazing, and as it says it in the title: a gem mine for readers and writers. It’s amazing and worth getting. I use this every day and the ideas I get from the writers are truly inspiring and worth writing into my personal journal for my personal growth and productivity. Definitely worth upgrading and becoming a member. If I could suggest one thing the the creators of this app and website please make a night mode where the tex would be inverted from white & black to black & white similar to how iBooks does. Other than that, Medium is amazing and I hope my work is publishing here. Keep up the great work!!!!
  • Read This, Medium

    By Stylist plus numbers
    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.
