Medium publications on iOS

Medium is making Publications, its approach to creating “websites” within the platform, much more prominent in its apps:

Only publications that you follow on Medium will be featured on your app’s home screen (and only when they have new posts to read), so make sure to follow publications you enjoy. You can find suggested publications to follow here, or hit the Explore button (next to Publications) on your app’s home screen to browse curated categories.

It seems that Medium has finally chosen to be a platform over a publisher – and this is a nice step to making it more compelling.
