★ POLITICO Article, Video, and Photos content changes several times, every day. The app will automatically check for changes several times every hour, and intelligently download only those changes that are different from the last downloaded content. If you want an immediate update, you can always use the pull-to-refresh mechanism built into every section front.
★ All downloaded non-video Article content is intelligently cached for offline reading when a network connection is not convenient. You can use the “AUTO UPDATE” flags in the Sections list to control what and how much content we automatically download. Selecting a section that is not flagged for auto updating will only download that section upon demand when a network connection is available, otherwise we present the last downloaded version of that content, for offline reading.
