The Guardian introduces 'Live' and 'Discover' to premium tier of app

Aimed at helping The Guardian's most committed readers discover more of its journalism, Live and Discover are two new app features designed to fit in with subscribers' lives.

Both accessed via the homepage of the premium tier app, Live (accessed via swiping left) is a constantly updating feed that carries breaking news stories and live blogs via a rolling interface.

Meanwhile, Discover (accessed via swiping right), consists of long reads, interviews and features to read at leisure and is designed to be richly visual.

The Guardian says of the features: "Our premium app should offer subscribers the best way in which to enjoy The Guardian – and once we've heard more about what these readers like or perhaps don't like, what's working and what could be even better, we’ll build on these new features.

"None of our journalism is going behind a paywall, whether on The Guardian website or in the free version of the app, which is still available – in fact, paying subscribers who appreciate the benefits of the premium tier are helping to keep things that way. Some readers, we hope, will really enjoy these new ways to explore Guardian journalism."
