Saving items to read later
In one of those “why wasn’t this there to begin with?” moments, Windows 8.1 gets a new app called Reading List. From a web page or an app that is set up to use the Share charm, you can save a link to the Reading List so you can return to it later without retracing your steps.
The Reading List in action
I’ve used the Share charm to save a half-dozen items to the Reading List, not just from a web browser but from the Sports and Travel apps and even from the Windows Store.
The new snap behavior is especially welcome when you open an attached photo or web link from a mail message. Instead of replacing the current app with another, Windows 8.1 arranges the new app alongside the message.
