The controls are not intuitive. I just read an article and followed the author. Now I want to save the article to my Productivity List, but I can't find the article. I can't find a "recently read" or "history" either. Obviously I like the content since I signed up for my first year, but the app is annoying.

When a publishing platform alienates its content providers, it's a bad sign; Medium has done that again. Recent changes have improved usability slightly, but it's *still* hard to locate recent content written by those you follow. There are silly UI flaws, the embedded-to-track-you browser does *not* work, links in emailed notifications fail with the mobile app, and a platform designed for reading does *not* allow me to choose a preferred font. The sun is setting on Medium: go to Substack.

The actual writing content varies but is mostly very good. The app itself has a nice presentation but it's fiddly when it comes to making a reading list or archiving things. sometimes when you archive something, or remove it from archives, the change doesn't stick and it goes back to where it was before. GUI is nice and intuitive, settings are easy to use and helpful to improve the reading experience. Just needs to improve the archive function.
