The features allows users to manually download new content, or let the app do it for you “intelligently”. Offline reading preferences include options to download content only when connected to Wi-Fi (default) or an option to use your cellular network.

The offline mode allows users to customize which sections they want to download for offline reading, making the feature handy for those without data or Wi-Fi access, or have small data plans.

The app update also includes a “more consistent content reading experience,” while there have also been some performance improvements and miscellaneous UI tweaks.

Apple is currently highlighting this latest update from the Globe and Mail in the App Store.
