According to new reports, Microsoft has now made its Windows reading app available for its newest generation of smartphone. The reading app was a feature that was initially only available for computer systems in its Windows 8.1 system, but is now an option for the smartphone, a continuation of the company's "Window's everywhere" marketing strategy.
The reading app is a feature that allows users to bookmark and save online content for reading at a later point. If there is an article or piece that you want to read but cannot get to right away, it can be safely stored on your phone until you are ready for it. This way, you do not have to waste your time trying to find the same website or source for what you were looking at.
While this feature has already been available for Microsoft tablets and computers, it was previously not for the Windows 8.1 phone. At the beginning of May the tech company announced that they would be changing this policy to make the feature mobile and easier to use for its consumers. All content is rendered in its original format, to allow users to easily access what they want to see, whether it is a newspaper article or video from the internet.
"Reading List on Windows Phone 8.1 has an improved Home screen that highlights an article from your list with a nice big version of the article's image and under that, the Recently viewed section will show the five most recent things launched from Reading List," said the public statement from Microsoft.
