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.

  • Some good articles, but the interface is a nightmare

    By Boston Based Bill
    Be prepared to go through a tortuous process of signing in, getting an email and following a second sign in link every single time you return to the app. Barely worth the trouble.
  • Misleading membership

    By karabrophy
    I loved this app as soon as I downloaded it and a few days later I can’t find a single article I can read without paying for the subscription. Why do you offer a free option for membership when there appears to be no free content? Or tell us how to find the free content. At least offer a longer trial period. I might be happy to pay but it would be nice to try it out for a bit.
  • Poor Service.

    By MelRNOCN
    I just cancelled my subscription. I had upgraded. Money was removed from my acct on June 9. I still don’t have access. The biggest frustration is that I can’t get an answer or even acknowledgement that something is wrong. I have tried many times over the last 2 weeks. I am ignored. Very poor service.
  • Best I’ve Seen

    By Xhskfkakdka
    Nothing, nit even Apple news, can top Mediums platform.
  • Great for gaining knowledge outside of the mainstream

    By Ray50Romero
    I really enjoy using this app, I mainly use it to learn things I wouldn’t normally learn on a normal news or journal app. Definitely recommend it if you enjoy learning random things under a general topic
  • Love It

    By Nico0122222222
    The best I ever spent on a service. I love the quality content!
  • Joe Bob says two thumbs up!

    By GreggInCA
    Medium has cracked the tough nut of providing quality writing without having ads present. They deserve your support. The app is great, and the content is well worth the $5 per month that it cost to subscribe!
  • Real voices, real writing: short reads that feed the brain

    By Fengshuieverything Alexa
    Medium is a refreshing oasis of new voices we get to vote in support of, or not. No spin of note; facts that we can check; ideas to keep our brains alive and functioning more optimally. I for one take daily measures in the care and feeding of my neuroplastic brain, that so far defies aging, thanks to shaking it out of its old grooves continuously, and reading widely like this helps. The content is always relevant, sometimes ordinary/extraordinary zen, and never fails to be engaging in Medium’s variance of subject matter alone.
  • Great

    By Phillythabest98
    Great app, great way to express yourself and learn from others perspective.
  • Hit or miss

    By Eviomcpevio
    I’m not sure the quality of the writing is always high enough — or it could be the lack of an editor. Even a copy editor would help.
