App 5.0: Navigating the new Globe app

Q. What’s in the ‘Home’ section?

By clicking the “Home” icon in the bottom left screen, you will go back to the main home screen of the

app where you can find the top navigation bar, the most recent and top stories of the day.

 

Q. How do I navigate to different sections in the app? 

There are two ways to navigate. 

1. Click on the “Sections” icon in the bottom navigation bar.  A menu opens that allows you to scroll vertically through all of the content sections available in the app. 

2. The homepage is the default when you open the app or you can click on the “Home” icon.  You can scroll Right to Left on the top black navigation bar or on the main screen to see all of the content sections available on the app.

Q. Where are all of the financial data pages?

The new app is a dynamic product that will be updated as new features are available.  At the moment,

financial data pages, tools or widgets  are not available on the app.

 

Q. It looks as if the new app is using a different text and font size than the one I am used to. Can I change or alter the text and font size to suit my preferences and needs?

Yes, you can.  In order to change the Article Text Size you need to exit the article you are reading, go to your home screen, and click on the gear wheel.  This opens the settings menu.  At the top of the menu, toggle “Use System Font” off.  Then you can select your desired font size.

         

Q. Does the new app only contain news and business content? Which sections are included?

Not at all! The new iOS and Android app contains almost everything that is available on globeandmail.com.
