Medium is an online publishing platform for writers where millions of readers daily login to read because of the best quality of writers who happen to publish their work. It also needs sign-up on first use and asks for your interests. The homepage, like most other reading apps, shows articles you are interested in and the trending ones. Medium has restrictions to read free articles per day if you are not a paid subscriber. I would recommend subscribing to medium if you into blog writing and want to taste some of the best or even love reading fine pieces of writing. The application looks neat and simple but requires a lot of functional improvements. It gets unresponsive at times, even crashes randomly.
It is similar to Medium except for the difference in emphasis. Curiosity strives in providing a better learning experience based on your interests. It has videos and article in your feed. The experience is more user-centric than creator-centric as seen in Medium. It also is a large enough platform that has material to consume the whole of your lifetime. It comes to personal preference on which to choose for article reading we recommend using the application for a week or so before deciding on any. The app is bug-free, fast and easy to use overall.
Feedly is different from Medium and Curiosity though it provides your feed with articles of your interest. Yes, you get the feed but the content of the feed is not restricted to content published within the platform. You can subscribe to topics and subtopics and it will source top contents from various platforms to fill your feed with valuable information. It is more of a news-centric than blogs or articles. It is more informative. If you are planning to expand knowledge base then concentrating on word porn Feedly is the way to go. The app has been in use for a long time hence very refined and easy to use.
Reddit is a discussion forum, content rating, and news aggregation and some extent of socialization platform for enthusiast of various aspects. Let me take brief it for you. Instead of getting a feed based on your interest there is thread system followed here. There are topics knows as Reddit and subtopics as subreddits. You can choose to follow any of it and any thread added under it will be part of your feed. The posts can be upvoted or downvoted as per your likes and the ones with the highest votes appear on the top. The application is not fully baked you donâ€™t get all the information in one screen. PC is the ideal way to use Reddit but for instances like traveling and so Reddit app is fine.

This is a different advent on reading. If you are bored of articles and novels these are entertaining titbits for you. As the name suggests these are smaller than short stories. They promise to deliver a touching story within 2000 characters (not words). Donâ€™t believe, download the app, sign in and read for yourself. Some stories even are as small as a caption, within a single dialogue exchange they deliver a story of deep meaning. Should be a great idea if you are into creative writing. The application is good and gets the job done.
Wattpad is a publishing platform for stories, books, and novels by independent writers who donâ€™t expect anything more than appreciation and encouragement in return. Yes, you can even publish a whole book in the platform and get feedback. Most are written by new writers or happen to be novellas that canâ€™t become a standalone publication. Some novice writers even post their story before publication to get reviews from enthusiasts. Wattpad is the place for story lovers to take a route away from the only-good storybooks available in the bookshelves. The application needs a lot of patience to be used, needs improvement.

Kindle is the e-book reading application from Amazon e-books as we all know. Apart from a lot of famous and paid e-books, there are a lot of free e-books available in various languages in the Amazon Kindle store that you can easily download and read. The app is very well designed and free of any nonsenses like ads and promotions.
Goodreads is a social media for book lovers. It has nothing more information to share and post than your bookshelf, your preferences, your review of the book. The limitation in the platform keeps it very oriented to book lovers and sticks to the essence of the book reading. You can get a lot of valuable book recommendation, book insights, and reviews about books. The app is minimal, simple and works well.
If you are wondering why a social media application is present on the list. It is less relatable list hence the last place. But the way it is relatable is, if directed properly Twitter can be seen as the no-nonsense social media that gives a feed of our own interests only. The tweet character count is restricted to 280 characters so no one is going to rant big. Twitter, as we know, has a very large user base and hence most of the writers/authors you wish to follow can be found. All you need to do is follow the right person and you will get what you need on the feed. The app is extremely fluid and nice only downside are the promotional tweets that come in between.
