I totally love all the diverse topics I can read about by great writers.
I like where Medium is heading to. It seems that the Android app is not as advanced as the iOS app because we can't create a series in the Android app. And I wish we could pay for membership with PayPal or via Google Play subscription, because I don't have a CC 😭
Whenever I tap the button in my email, I was redirected to the Sign-In method page !!
Medium has quickly came one of my favourite platforms to read insights, be inspired and connect to other people. The Android app works great, no complaints about it.
The collection of articles is quite rich and good quality, however there are some bugs in the app. Series pages do not fir properly in my screen. Some of the initial lines get cropped. When I select a topic to follow, the button changes to following, but if I scroll down and come back, the same topic button resets itself.
From the reader's perspective the app offers inferior experience to the mobile web, I've found it to be generally slower and unreliable with spotty connection. Articles are not cached for offline reading – not to mention you can't read your bookmarks offline. The single reason I keep it around is that I don't need to login to every domain to like/bookmark article (which also doesn't work offline). Edit: Medium announced Offline Reading List as one of the few benefits of paid membership. If you are not interested in paying for offline support, you are better off with Instapaper or Pocket rather than this app.
