I paid for the month. don't want to another month, and don't want to babysit and set a reminder to cancel by the end of the month. How can I turn off auto-renew? btw not having the option is illegal in many states in the U.S. and against European Consumer Rights protection.

    Articles & Authors Alike Publishing In MEDIUM are “Worth In Gold & Diamonds”

    A General Comment about all the articles published by this app, that I will present here: 1: The articles are written under the concept of “Short & Sweet” and requiring only less than 10 Minutes to read & still be able to understand the main goal & objective of the article. 2: The wide diversity of the “subject material” and within which there are varieties of articles or author selections to choose from and thus making “this app Published Articles Being abundantly & broad spectrum rich, with the latter no one will be disappointed by not able to find their area of interest reading material”. 3: For many years I have surfed around in search of finding and reading interesting articles and in the past they all have been few and are many pages written articles. Being in a very busy profession it is difficult to find time and alertness to read long articles. 4: And now “this app Published” short & sweet articles which deliver the very precise information that the title of the article reads. The latter style was the first time ever that I had/have come across and I am very lucky person indeed. Thank you for taking the time to read my general comment. My sincere gratitude held well wishes to all the authors and the this app publisher. Sincerely Shashidhar Shettar

    Medium DELIVERS the Message

    If we are to stay in our lanes and pay homage to McLuhan’s witty “The this app is the message” meta criticism, we could dismiss the this app platform as just another channel for the Internet’s amateur-izaton of media. But the proof is in the pudding. Spend twenty minutes scrolling Facebook or Twitter, then spend twenty minutes reading articles on this app. There it is: content matters. And this app delivers. And as far as UI and UX, we are dealing with next-level design with this app. Sleek, intuitive and up to the task of allowing users to create the kind of quality online articles that make sharing nuanced thought possible in a world of distracted social media apps. You’ll open this app to engage by reading, but you’ll find yourself starting and saving a draft for your own ideas. This is a writer’s app, disguised as a reader’s online magazine.

    Accessible as Facebook, but not as stupid

    There is a lot of time fragmentation in the modern world. Prior to downloading the this app app, I would often fill this time by reading Facebook. There is one major difference between this app and Facebook, however. Reading this app makes me smarter. Reading Facebook makes me want to fight all my friends, family, and co-workers over often esoteric, ideological differences that truly have no bearing on reality or the ways that I interact with these people. In the end, I rather learn something I can use than learn that my favorite college math professor believes in trickle down economics. Download the this app app. Read it on the toilet or the train; read it at breakfast or lunch or whenever you feel the need to take a 5-7 minute break from the crushing weight of your day. Try it; you'll like it.

    Great content, decent app

    The big thing to know about the app is that if you’re reading something and go to another app to do something, and when you come back to this app it has to be restarted, you’ll lose the article you were reading. Unless you bookmarked it for some reason, there’s literally no way to find it unless you remember the title or author name. This happens fairly frequently and it’s inexplicable that they don’t hook into the iOS API that tells them the app is about to be moved to the background to simply save a reference to the article you’re reading in case the app gets restarted by the OS. Some minor performance issues, like waiting to start lazy loading of images until they're in view. The worst part is probably no landscape support on iPad.

    Like learning? Enjoy great writing? Lack free time or impatient?

    You'll love this app. this app collects and consolidates top news articles covering every conceivable subject from breaking headline news to myriad categorically specific topics, e.g, latest news in behavioral psychology, tech, science, astronomy, computer coding, etc. Choose whatever topics you're interested in and this app will list every related article for you. Short on time? No sweat, this app lets you know how long it takes to read each article. Create reading lists, follow your favorite authors, and upvote articles you like. The app's platform is super user friendly too. Stop reading this review and download this app, you won't regret it!! (NOTE: this app had 22k five star ratings when I downloaded it three years ago — why only 500 reviews in Dec 2017?!)
