I use for providing audio for my Medium readers. They are robotic voices, but it gets the job done and it's very easy to get started. You can even embed the player inside your own articles.

Thunderclap chrome extension

Clap 50 times in 1 click of Medium's clap button

Now you can show Medium authors appreciation with ease. 1 click gives the maximum number of claps - 50.

Since Medium has debuted its cutting edge clap technology, it has been met with mixed reaction. Regardless, we can agree it turns the binary upvote into something more graduated. I'm a UI guy. I design and develop user-interfaces in the most user-kind way I can.

Darker Medium applies a customizable dark theme to *all* medium formatted stories. You can customize the header background, main accent color, highlight color and link styles separately from the option menu. No matter the domain, if a site is using Medium, it will get a dark theme; that is the main advantage over Stylus and Stylish.

Medium Anchor

Free Chrome Extension to add anchor links to Medium articles

Medium Anchor is a free Chrome Extension to add anchor links to Medium articles with just one click.

Medium doesn’t have a built-in feature to add anchor links so this extension was built to fill this gap. It works on both desktop and Medium mobile apps.

Anchor links are helpful to create table of contents and footnotes. It's also good for SEO.

I'm going to show you how you can make a nice hyper-linked Table of Contents for your Medium articles. Here's what this will look like in your Medium article: Each of these links will jump to a specific part of the article. This is a major usability improvement for your readers.
Update: Medium Anchor is now available on Google Web Store! I love reading! Almost every single day, I open Medium in my smartphone and read lots of amazing articles from authors and channels I follow and also articles recommended by Medium.
