Last night we made a few key changes to our new app for iPhone and iPad, based on feedback we've received from readers since the app launched. The changes bring you more stories and more scannable ways to find the top news from the sections you care about. Here's what you'll see in the app today:
- We’ve introduced new, separate sections for Sports and Life & Arts to make it easier to find the latest news, columns and game reports from all the major sports, as well as create a dedicated space for our coverage of arts, culture, food, wine, fashion, travel, health and cars.
- Our Top Headlines section, now available on both iPad and iPhone, gives you an easily scannable view of the most recent key stories, organized according to familiar Globe sections, including: business, investing, national news, politics, world, sports, automotive and more.
- Finally, we’ve updated the home screen view on the iPhone. The new home screen leads with an overview of the most important stories that the Globe is currently following. Scroll down and you’ll find an easily scannable list of the top headlines of the moment from all of The Globe's main sections. Watch for further improvements to this home screen view in future updates.
We are also planning a series of regular App Store updates over the next several months. The next one, coming in July, will have a lot of improvements to app navigation, speed and overall functionality.
Thanks to everyone who has sent along their thoughts on the new app so far. Happy to hear what you think of last night's changes — don't hesitate to get in touch.
