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.

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!
