Check out the summaries

Check out the summaries. Pick an article to view a nice summary. If an infographic or map is available, it will be displayed for you as well. Tapping a map will provide you an attractive zoomed-in view. You can then choose to read the full article from the source, share it with friends, or save it for later.

Two ways to save articles. Saving articles that you would like to check out at a later time can be done in two different ways. First, you can tap the paperclip when you are reading an article summary. Or second, you can simply swipe the article and choose to save it from the main feed. Then tap the paperclip on the main feed page to see those you have saved.
