Medium is made for you: people who are genuinely curious about the world and your part in it.
From opinion pieces to interviews to in-depth reportage, photography, and features, Medium stories take many shapes, but always leave you with greater insight into the world.

Our app features a clean reading experience designed to let you focus on the story (without an ad in sight) wherever you are, from your commute to your couch. You can read a select number of stories for members each month for free — or subscribe for $5/month for unlimited access.

HOMEPAGE: The sheer volume of information on the internet can get to be too much. So in our app, we curate stories based on your personal interests and our editors’ picks of the best of the day.

COLLECTIONS: Our editors package the best stories on Medium into multi-part collections that you can binge-read or savor over time. You can explore expert columns, multi-author anthologies, comprehensive explainers, and our monthly magazine.

READING: Our app is designed to let you focus on the words. Bookmark stories to your reading list. Join the conversation by writing a response. Clap for stories to show writers your appreciation. If there’s a particular passage that intrigues you, highlight it for posterity.

MEMBERSHIP: With a free Medium account, you get access to all these features — including all free stories on Medium — plus a select number of stories for members per month (the ones with a star next to them).

If you upgrade to become a Medium member, you’ll get unlimited access to everything Medium has to offer: the smartest and most ambitious stories from the sharpest writers on Medium, audio versions of popular stories, and more. All for $5/month or $50/year.

WRITING: For writers, we know inspiration knows no bounds — you can compose a new story on the go and then switch easily to your tablet or computer without a hiccup.

Your Medium membership will automatically renew each month, and you will be charged $4.99 through your iTunes account within 24-hours prior to the end of the current monthly cycle. You can turn off auto-renew at any time from your iTunes account settings up until 24-hours before the end of the current period, but refunds will not be provided for any unused portion of the term.

Simply the best

Medium is without any doubt the most interesting app I’ve ever seen. It’s the first app I open after wakkng up.
The only risk involved is that if you’re a curious open minded person, you’ll experience the urgev to keep on reading and be late for appointments etc.

Conclusion: best money I’ve ever spend on an app. And you have to admit the contribution for premium membership is more than fair for what you get.

To the developers and writers: you’ll always have deepest sympathy!

Hi Kevin, thank you so much for your kind words! Have a wonderful day!

A new type of meditation

Inspiring. Whenever you feel defeated or inspired or lacking motivation or too excite, just scroll down Medium, find an article that catches your attention (may be difficult to choose...) and read. Perfect that it tells you how long the read will take. Thanks for creating this and sharing knowledge!

Downloading this app in Belgium and it’s in French instead of Dutch. No way too change it in any way possible.

Hi Mark! To change your app language on iOS, go to your system Settings and search for "preferred language order". Then, move the language you'd like to use in the Medium app higher in the order.
