Handy for syncing items across PCs and phone

I installed this so I could sync links across multiple PCs, since Edge doesn't support favorites/history syncing at the time of this writing. Does the job; simple and easy to use.

Truly a must-have

Use almost daily to save stories for reading later. Sometimes you don't want to read a particular article on a smartphone, or you don't have time to read a story when you come across it at work. Share it to the Reading List and read later at your leisure.

This is a very useful application. Thank you to the people who made it, and thank you for giving it away for free. However, I would like to suggest a feature to the developers: To have the option to read the stored articles and webpages even when I am offline. Full article storage, not just a bookmark.

When an article is converted to reading mode on any device, that file should be stored to onedrive. You should be able to retrieve that article forever and sync for offline use! You could also force syncing through the OneDrive tool. This reading app could then just access your OneDrive reading folder. Not sure if auto opening a page in reading mode is an option? They have to load up ads for revenue! Would be convenient for the EU.

Good App & More Functional Than Edge Reading List

This is great for saving anything you find for later. I hope Microsoft leaves this around as it's better than the reading list in Edge in the following ways: - Syncs across devices - Can be used with any app capable of sharing, not just webpages. For example, I can save apps in the store to reading list, or news articles from News Republic, Flipboard, etc. Edge can't unless you can get to the webpage inside the browser. - Better organized (including categories) - Includes short descriptions in addition to the page title (the list in Edge is really just another set of basic bookmarks)

Sync it with Edge.

The options to organize pages in this app are very convenient. The new Edge browser doesn't provide the option to sort and categorize the reading list. It will be great if this reading list app and Edge reading list are synchronised! Perfect app in windows 8.1!
