The layout and UI of the latest version is very cluttered. The new home page is very messy, especially on smaller devices. Multiple topics are crammed onto one page and it's an issue if one subscribes to a lot of topics. I would prefer the previous version with home(digest and recommendations) and multiple tabs(for further exploration). The members-only suggestions look appetising but take up too much space in the new home page, I don't need 2+ scrolls of nothing when I'm not subscribing. I would like to see folders or tags for bookmarked items, having a too-long list of bookmarks is a hassle when navigating. All in all, a very good app for reading, just only some cosmetic changes needed.
As pointed out by many other reviews, latest changes have really ruined the medium experience. I used to enjoy seeing lots of articles based on my interests, but now it's hard to find almost anything. There is no way to get rid of all 'recommended by us' articles that i simply have no interest in whatsoever. Real shame.
Was much better before the redesign. It used to provide a wide array of interesting articles. Now it shows me either articles I've already read or totally irrelevant stories. I miss the old Medium.
This app is simple, clear and does the job. It is also fast and I can't find anything to complain about (even though I am usually pretty good at this). One suggestion would be to save the position in which I left an article if I am not finished with it so that I can start where I left off, that'd be great :)
After using Medium for a year, I became a member. It is a good experience but the member-only content can be improved. I do not mean to restrict more content, but maybe have something more exclusive for the paid members. I'm having a great experience so far. I have seen some people complaining of the new homepage, you can change it back under E-mail settings in settings menu; so it is optional. They are trying something new, which is appreciated. I like the new home page. Limited content according to the time of the day. Medium has been great so far, I hope they keep this up. The content is great and the writers are great. Bugs: Unable to read offline. I can't swipe from to-read to archive and have to click manually. Unable to read offline is the biggest bummer.
What is medium doing with this app? I used to love it. My use was simple: read stories, follow the authors if i liked them, apply the same to suggested articles, then look forward to an endless stream of quality content on my front page. Now I see only a handful of stories on my home screen with equal space given to a handful of locked audio stories i have no interest in unlocking, and "my network" is limited to one of many interests i've followed. In short, the app retains none of the features i valued.
