A New Medium on Mobile

Helping you build stronger connections with the writers and publications you love

For millions of people, Medium’s mobile app is their window to discover and read stories from writers they trust and subject-matter experts across a wide variety of topics. Our app was originally designed around an infinite feed of stories, which makes it simple to scan headlines and tap one that captures your attention or piques your interest. Every story you read is input into an algorithm to help recommend stories you might want to read next. And while this loop is effective for quickly helping you find something to read, the algorithmic-based feed makes it hard for readers to build a strong connection with the writers and publications they love.
