Version 3.13 released on November 14, 2017
In this update: We have changed the icon indicating which stories are written for members from a lock to a star. If you are not yet a Medium member, tap any story with a star to start exploring the best stories on Medium. 
 **Ok, we’ll be honest.
 We went down a long road of trying to make something out of “Hey now, you’re a lock-star.”
 It was bad. Really bad. So we are going to spare the world all that cringe, and just end these notes right now.

Version 3.12 released on November 10, 2017
One morning, when the Medium app woke from troubled dreams, it found itself transformed in its bed into a horrible vermin. It lay on its armour-like back, and if it lifted its head a little it could see its brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. "What's happened to me?" it thought. It wasn't a dream. A push notification that had arrived while it was active would not navigate to the target post. The app then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, and iOS 9 was continually causing problems, which made it feel quite sad. "How about if I reduce the default tab title font size, and forget all this nonsense," it thought, but that was something it was unable to do, and in its present state couldn't make that happen. However hard it tried, they always rolled back to the other size. It must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that it wouldn't have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when it began to feel a mild, dull pain there that it had never felt before. IN THIS UPDATE: * Fixes bug in which user can't navigate to a post from a push notification when the app is active * Drops iOS 9 support * Reduces default tab title font size

Version 3.11 released on November 03, 2017
The last update was fun, let's do another! We separated out the _ flows for sign up vs. sign in, so __ that should be clearer now. ___ And new iPhone came out! It ___ is called the iPhone X, and has __ this neat "notch" in it. We have _ updated the app to accommodate the notch, because there are some particular design requirements.

Version 3.10 released on November 02, 2017
With this update, we are trying to turn down your frustration-o-meter with a few fixes and features: -RESTORE PURCHASES: Tapping this button in the "you" tab will resend your Membership status to Medium. FRUSTRATION DECREASE: 25% -TEXT SHOTS FIX: iOS 11 users were crashing when saving text shots to the camera roll. Now they don't. FRUSTRATION DECREASE: 15% -EASIER LINK TAPPING: Fingers are blunt instruments, so it is now easier to tap links on post pages. FRUSTRATION DECREASE: 60%
