Reading in the app

Microsoft partnered with several publications (ABC News, Fox News, The Guardian, Reuters, AP, and Bloomberg, to name a few) to get their content on the app. When you open an article from one of these sources, it loads in the app's reader (shown above), where you can adjust the font size and style.
