Nourishment for the mind

New to the app, I’ve been impressed with its variety and ease of use. Bite sized chunks of brain food - three to five times a day - provide valuable energy and clarity. Well done.

Great app, but offline reading experience is less than stellar

I am a paid Medium subscriber. Totally love the platform and the app. There is just so much good content and UX is very well thought through. One annoying thing that happens often is the reading list doesn’t load when the app is disconnected from the internet. C’mon, guys, this is the whole point of the reading list! Imagine bookmarking 40 articles to read on a 7-hour trans-Atlantic flight without WiFi only to discover the dreaded “something went wrong” message and have 0 articles available for reading. Incredibly frustrating. That’s -1 star. Another thing is that due to lazy loading, the bookmarked articles don’t have images in them unless you have actually opened and read the articles. Sometimes these images are important as they include diagrams, tables and other relevant info. That’s -1 star. Fix these and the app gets 5 stars!

You always pull me out of a rut and get me going.
Entrepreneurship and working on my own needs a lot of clear headed thinking and you provide that. Thanks
