I really like mediums articles but this app is awful when it comes to small screens. You can zoom in, you can't rotate the screen for landscape reading. It seems to be designed for tablets and tablets alone. Anyways been a paid subscriber for a long time but this is just getting annoying... and really questions if mediums really that good if they can't fix a simple usability issue.

Was initially pretty ok with the app. Wasn't fantastic, was far from awful, but now that the ability to write a story has been removed as a content creator I literally have no reason to have the app & will be deleting when I'm done writing this review. My request: Make a second app for content creators. Great opportunity to tailor towards the user with greater focus. If writing comes back I'd love a notification. Thanks!

I just tried to draft two articles I have in mind. And I can't. Why? They removed the ability to draft articles on mobile. How many people seriously spend all their writing time at a computer? Because I can't manage that luxury! I'm in a PhD program and have a baby. When I have quick ideas, I love to get them down as soon as possible, so I don't lose them. Sure, I could email stuff to myself, use a different app, etc. But it's a hassle, and other apps are distracting, or not writing oriented.
