    Pros: 

    In general, Medium makes long-form content simple to write & scale. The mobile app is great for quickly responding to interactions.

    Cons: 

    Mobile search & Drafts could use more functionality - in particular, being able to organize/tag/group drafts would be extremely helpful.

    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

    Pros: 

    Beautiful visuals, easy to use, and the best blog editor I could find.

    Cons: 

    None that I can think of.

    I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.

Not totally into the brand new logo, but most of all I'm concerned about some typographic choices :\ Where is the centered text? Why they removed an heading style? 😔

I don;t like the logo. Where is the original dark, bold, prominent M . Too bad. Hope it will not go down like blogger

@dontpanic_cg @pieroborgo George, are you saying that because you personally don't like the logo they now have a chance to become as unpopular as Blogger? Can't say that is a smart statement...

@briansventures @pieroborgo as a designer I inevitably tend to watch at logos and typography. I don't agree about some choices they made but I still love to write and read on Medium.

I really like Medium but I can't get behind this new logo. From reading the post about its development, it's clear they put a lot of work into it so I don't want to make it look like I'm slamming the designer; I'm not. I just don't see how this portrays the Medium brand better than the previous logo. The previous one looked like, from my perspective, a typed letter. That imagery fit what Medium was. This new logo, not so much.

@fbara Same impression here... I like the new logo, but I don't think it represents Medium so well as the old one used to...

@torbahax Nice! Also nice story on the design journey. Logo reminds me of a project I'm working on ;) https://twitter.com/awayin_to

The new logo makes medium appear like a new startup that is trying to be trendy. Not a well grounded company that was doing something different on the web!
