Thank you for still giving users time with this app

(for PC): While it's a decent bookmarking alternative, I dislike the layout and navigation. I'm disappointed that I can't import it into Edge, but it's understandable considering the circumstances. What I found insulting and misleading was the solution: open each link in Edge, one by one, save. It is the solution but it was poorly executed. Moving on, Importing the links as favorites and then manually/optionally saving it within the browser is clearly a better alternative. Ideally, I'd use Reading List as my default bookmarking as it appears to sync seamlessly. Edge is rather limited at this early stage of development. On that note, backing up and exporting favorites in Edge would be nice. (WP8.1) I like using this app on my phone. One request: Disable saving duplicates, if possible. Thank you. via WP10: When I wiped my PC's hard drive I assumed I'd lose my favorites saved to Edge. I was wrong. Importing Reading List into Edge also changed awhile ago. Thank you very much.

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!

Love this app! I've been using it for years now, but have recently found it will soon be unsupported without any future updates. PLEASE don't do this! I love how this app syncs perfectly with all my Windows devices! I have noticed a Reading List option was put into the new Windows Edge browser but it does not seem to sync with the app, nor do I have the ability to organize in categories, like I already do in the app. Please keep the app going.

Missing so many functions

Good try, windows. But give Poki a try instead. It's a MUCH better app for the same thing, but with offline reading, tagging, quoting, and sharing.

Please don't Kill

Expand it so it works on multiple devices. Love this app. Link it with Bing but make it stand alone as well.

I hate PC's switching to MAC

Microsoft has ruined computer life for me. Ever since windows 8 and now 10. It is completely NOT intuitive. It is built by nerds for nerds that think computer logic all day long and don't set people down to watch them use their equipment. REALLLY , non-intuitive. Guess where the icons are, create a read list but don't make it easy enough to just drag a file into. I have tried downloading into the read list and it just wont appear there. I was trying to bet a book off my desktop. I used to process photos quickly, and now it seems I have 2-4 extra steps in the newer programs and if I am tired, I screw up and it just irritates me. They say things go from order to disorder and I now believe that. It WAS very intuitive and logical until windows 8. This is like asking someone to learn piano or another language (logic) at age 60. Downloading free 10 also caused many webpages not to open at all. with error messages. Did I say I hate Microsoft. Seriously looking APPLES direction.

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.
