Storyline

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.
