Windows Reading List app for Windows 8.1 receives new update, lets you categorize items

Microsoft has rolled out an update for the Reading List app that comes pre-installed in Windows 8.1. This app allows you to save and manage content you find on the internet for later viewing. 

“Do you ever run out of time to read articles or watch videos you’ve found online? With Reading List, you can easily track and manage all of the content you want to get back to later in a beautiful display. You can share content to your list from the web or from other apps and easily come back to it when you have more time. Whatever you like to read or watch, the app makes it easy to save, find and get back to things you like, listing content you’ve saved in chronological order,” the app description reads.

In this new update, Reading List now allows you to categorize items that are added to your list. You can also create new categories, as well as delete categories. No word yet on what else was improved, as Microsoft has yet to publish a change log.

This new update is still rolling out, so keep checking the Windows Store for your update. Let us know in the comments below if you were able to snag the update and if you find any of the new features useful.

Thanks for the tip, Andrew!
