    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.

    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 own growth and productivity. Definitely worth upgrading and becoming a member. Medium is amazing and I hope to publishing my work here. Keep up the great work!!!!
  • Why I love Medium

    I love using Medium to exercise my love for writing. The platform is a bit easier to use on a PC/Mac than on a smartphone but works pretty well considering. In addition, I recommend reading a lot of the content that's out there if you want more foot traffic.
  • Medium rocks

    They finally did night mode...and they referenced one of the best It’s Always in Philadelphia scenes ever in the update notes. Worth the wait, thank you! 🎉

    Good job adding dark mode version 0.1. Now it needs to be great. Please improve the dark mode for night reading. The best example I’ve seen of dark mode is demonstrated in the iOS Kindle app. The Kindle app has... - controls for brightness (in addition to iOS brightness controls) - text colors - background colors - text size - text width - etc. It is absolutely brilliant and should be the gold standard for apps that aim to provide exceptional reading experiences. Is Medium trying to be a great app for reading content or just another website? #KeepGoing
