After a short delay, Medium released its iPhone app today with a focus on reading and recommending stories. “Every week, thousands of people come to Medium to write,” company founder Ev Williams said in a post on the site. “That’s the hard part. We’re just helping amplify their voices.”
After signing in with Twitter, the app presents you with a list of stories based on what’s popular and what you have already chosen to follow. It tells you about how long it will take to read each story, and if you get bored partway through, you can swipe to the next story. The app also lets you share articles through Twitter, Facebook and email.
