App Reviews

  • Awful

    By JEKDC
    I want to read the DOJ alumni statement on Medium but the signatories are not available to see on my iPhone. It says click here but the list is nowhere. So I try the app, which requires you to sign up or connect through Facebook or Google. Total waste of time. Your site and app are awful.

  • iTunes Fraud

    By PLbuck
    Same day fraud on my iTunes account after downloading this free app. Two charges for $33.99 each, neither related to anything I subscribe to or bought. Only recent activity was downloading Medium.
  • No customization

    By myreasonsmile
    Zero stars. Following topics does absolutely NOTHING since you show me what you want anyway. I DO NOT want to see stuff that YOU think I want to see. I want to see things that actually interest me. Don’t download if you like reading things that interest you. You won’t get that option. Not sure what the point of topics are since I can’t see them.
  • Great app, awesome update messages

    By Campuzano85
    Not only is it an amazing app, but their update messages are always awesome.
  • Add partner program to the app!

    By zandercutt
    Perfect, except that the Medium Partner Program dash is not accessible via the app. Four stars until that is added. Keep everything else up, though!
  • YAY!

    By kulsayogi
    I commend you all for what you’re trying to do. I’ll become a sustaining member early next month, when my next Social Security disbursement shows up! ( As a retired person, I must ”front load” all my contributions to good causes early in my financial month, so there won’t be any ”glitches”! )
  • Love Medium

    By Phasianus
    Really enjoy Medium. Many interesting and well written stories.
  • Any color as long as it's black

    By Jesse the K
    No advantage to using this app. Exactly one font size and style. At least in browser I can use reader view.
  • Brilliant platform; too much gatekeeping and not enough $

    By creativeonion
    I’ve been a writer on Medium for over two years, and have always loved both the functionality and the community of dedicated critical thinkers and writers. Unfortunately, Medium has neglected its creative writing community, favoring current news, creative self-help, and identity politics above other genres, and burying the countless brilliant poets and fiction writers. Medium has also allowed its fantastic publication features to atrophe, to the extent of removing the ability to use custom domains. Instead, Ev has invested in bringing NYT, CNN, Bloomberg, Atlantic, and other left-leaning mainstream publications in, which the platform pushes aggressively in newsfeeds, pushing unique native Medium writers’ content into more obscure corners of the platform. I made decent money on a few of my works, early in the Partner Program, but over the last few months have had to completely demonetize my posts, as their visibility plummeted to single digits behind the paywall. I love writing and publishing on Medium, and I love the community and the high standards of dialogue and discussion. I’m also increasingly concerned about the platform’s censorship and control of dialogue, and the editorial control and gatekeeping of premium features (like audio). As a writer, I have yet to see Medium be anything close to a viable tool to get paid—unless you like writing self help or body positivity articles. I’d love to change this to five stars, and say it’s a great way to get paid. But it’s just not right now.
