- If you want to just write something and share it with people, without bothering about anything else, Medium is the go-to publishing platform. For example, I write about anything and everything on my Medium page - medium.com/@k3sava 😋
I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.
Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.
My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features
It was good, but now it forces itself to die: - It has too many UI distractions (popups) - Its comment section is one of the useless UX on the industry. - In comment detail page, you see related articles list instead of the responses first. - Constantly (more than 50% of the time) suggests premium articles on your feed and you cant opt out - It constantly shows you premium articles which you have to pay. You can not opt out. Premium articles are also on google search list, so you can open premium article without knowing which decreases your premium article monthly read limit
