You'll find a "Top Headlines" box right near the top of the new Home screen. Tap "More >" to see the latest news stories you need. Dig into dozens of additional stories by tapping "Browse Topics."

Listening to shows and podcasts
Looking for your favorite shows from NPR and WFIU? Just tap "Podcasts" in the bottom navigation bar and browse through a broad mix of national and local shows and podcasts. You'll also find Morning Edition and All Things Considered there under the "Daily News Shows" header. Or, you can tap the magnifying glass in the top right of the app and do a quick search for your favorite shows.
