The UX was an homage to the daily habit of flipping through a newspaper while drinking the morning coffee. Each module corresponded to an area of the screen, much like in newspaper design, with support for immersive experiences and a fluid grid. This structure enabled editors to autonomously assign a news hierarchy to the content in the app, so that our users could quickly grasp the most important stories of the day in each section.
The visuals played to the best parts of the visuals and UI in iOS 7, with simple, deliberate negative space to increase legibility throughout the UX.
