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.

On women and career

Oh dear....! I searched for women’s experience at work-place. I got a very good idea of the gender bias. I felt empowered reading Dina’s response to the comment on ‘women’s March on January 21, 2017. Well that was the voice of women who get frustrated day in and day out facing the gender-bias humiliation. Kudos to her...
I also read through the mind boggling app called ‘ALL EARS’ by Sharon and Amelia who are UX designers, which helps women to handle their problems which they do not feel free to share with anybody... But in this App, women can maintain their anonymity and still get help from the right person in the network, who again can choose to be anonymous. Check that up.. ‘ALL EARS’.. by Sharon and Amelia. Just for women...

All good but one feedback

Recently I have been seeing tune your recommendations as the first thing on my feed everyday. I don’t see the purpose of seeing this everyday even if I am done or not done. I would really like this element to be seen less since it distracts me from reading anything while I start my day with some reads.
Overall experience has been good and the quality of reads has been good.
Some recommendations get very cliched when you follow life, self as categories. All the titles seem same and I feel like skipping them everytime.

Awesome App to keep yourself updated

I am a teenage who is living the digital life, and instead of reading news paper like our older generation I prefer this app to get myself updated with the views of different people and not limiting myself with any specific newspaper publishers.
Also, me using keyword NewsPaper again and again doesn’t mean this thing keep you updated with news, no, but here you can have huge variety of articles about any topic of your choice and you too can easily publish your own articles and share them to any social media platforms.
