Users can go through an onboarding process when they open the app for the first time. Here, they can set a goal of how many articles they want to read a day, which article topics will appear in their feed, and how much their feed will focus on local versus national news.
When users bookmark an opened article, they can save their spot by setting a point to start at the next time they open the article. Users can also choose a starting point for others when they share the article.
To prevent the user from forgetting about their bookmarks, the app will remind the user of the daily goal they set during onboarding and reward them for achieving it.
Users can browse through playlists of articles curated by USA TODAY on the playlists page. They can also make their own playlists and add articles from the home feed.
