On the Home screen, viewing more new titles is done using the 'View all' button under each carousel. The Events Filters have been combined into a single button above the Events carousel.

Improvements have been made to how you navigate the app: 'Pull to refresh' has been added to the Home screen, and you can now swipe to go back instead of using the Back button.
