More readable
All the great content you want is now presented in a brand-new design that's both spiffier and simpler. Absolutely no clutter here — our new “card” design lets you see one gorgeous story at a time, and effortlessly swipe past anything you don't want to read. It's a never-ending stream of must-see that's way easier to use (and easy on the eyes, too).

You'll never have to hit the “back” button again. With our new design, you just have hit "read more" to dive straight in to the articles you want, without ever leaving the main feed. So, the next need-to-read article is never more than a quick scroll away.
