Tapping on any headline opens a "storyline," which is an evolving account of the news story with summaries of the information, quotes from relevant people or news articles, and photos were appropriate. Each storyline has a photo at the top, with the headline and sub headline. You can swipe up to read the rest of the news.
Also at the bottom of each storyline, you can see where Circa got its news reports, quotes, and other information. Most of the news comes from company blogs and news wire services, as well as prominent news outlets such as The New York Times and Reuters.
You can follow storylines in Circa so that when a new development happens, the app will alert you. This feature is especially helpful for long-term news, such as sports championship series, elections, and other developing stories.
