Here’s how to nav­i­gate the app and get the lat­est news from your favourite sources

News sto­ries

1

News from your sub­scribed sources ap­pear here, with a short ex­cerpt, a logo that in­di­cates the source, and an in­di­ca­tion of how long ago the item was pub­lished, and some­times a thumb­nail im­age, too. You can sim­ply tap an item to open it, or (on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus) ap­ply light pres­sure on an en­try to take a closer peek at its con­tents, then press harder if you want to read the whole item. Al­ter­na­tively, you can swipe up­wards from the pre­view to mark the item as some­thing you like, to save it to your read­ing list, or to share the item with other peo­ple by pri­vate mes­sage or on a so­cial net­work. Th­ese same ac­tions are avail­able from icons in the bot­tom tool­bar once you’ve popped open a story.

For You

2

Se­lect sto­ries from your favourite sources are dis­played here in list form, some­times with a pre­view im­age. Some­times the app will mix in cat­e­gories that might be of in­ter­est, so that you don’t only dis­cover them by man­u­ally (see point 4).

Favourites

3

Any sources you sub­scribe to dur­ing the ini­tial set-up process, or later un­der Ex­plore (see point 4) are listed here. Tap one to browse its full range of up­dates.

Ex­plore

4

Af­ter the ini­tial set-up process, tap here to find more news sources. The ad­van­tage of this page is that you can browse by topic, in­clud­ing tech­nol­ogy, sport and health, so you can quickly add spe­cific in­ter­ests to your grow­ing list of favourites.

Search

5

Just like search­ing the iTunes Store for mu­sic and films, you can en­ter search terms, from very broad ones, such as TV, to very spe­cific in­ter­ests, such as Star Wars.

Saved sto­ries

6

You can book­mark in­di­vid­ual sto­ries so that they are easy to find even as time passes. Saved sto­ries are shown in a list just like the For You page, and you can share them in a pri­vate mes­sage or on so­cial me­dia from here, too.
