How can we improve Burn After Reading?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Remember last position in article

    If I leave the app while reading an article, I want the app to remember where I stopped when I re-lauch the app.

    It is useful because of the limited multitasking of WP7.
    Especially for long articles...
    Of course there are a certain number of questions to adress, such as does the app remember the position in several unfinished articles or only one, etc. But it shoud definitely be at least in the options.

    • Add new link from app

      I wish i could simply paste in a new link to add to my reading list. Not all the app I use offer integration with Pocket. That way, it would be possible to add new content from these apps.

        • Horizontal pages, black background, full screen mode.

          Hi,

          i would love to have horizontal pages in text mode. Like if I where reading a book, it has the advantage of separating the text intelligently. So you don't have already read lines on your screen.

          Also Black background with white text would be really appreciated in text mode, on amoled screens it consume less energy and in the dark gives better readability.

          A full screen mode would be awesome as I still think the header and menu buttons takes to much places !

          Finally the possibility to choose font size! On my Lumia 920 the are to big!

          • support for tags

            I rely heavily on them, so that would be nice.

            • 2 bugs and one suggestion

              1. I can't acces the last article in the list because it's hidden behind the lower icon bar.
              2. The blue progress bar on the top never disappears which is confusing

              Experienced under WP8 (Lumia 920)

              Apart from that, it would be great if you could delete and mark articles as read/unread via context-menu on the overview pages.

                  • lock orientation

                    Windows phone does not offer this by default, but many apps have implemented it. I think a reading app like this must have it.

                      Would be great to have the possibility to share stuff on Yammer.

                        • Thumbnail images next to the headline

                          I think it would be neat if you had thumbnails for articles that contain images. Like the native iOS Pocket app does: http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/pocket-ios6-iphone5.png

                          It would bring more life into the app-layout.

                          • (bug) Some data causes quit

                            Some of my article makes the app quit right after the initial sync. I can open an article, but after 1-2 secs the app quits.

                            When I delete the article (in another client), the bug disappears.

                            • limit offline downloads to latest N links

                              I have a truly large set of links in Pocket that grows every day. I can't afford the storage space for all 40k links, so a setting to down the most recent N links (automatically dropping older downloads in the interest of space) would be very useful. I suggest a default of 250, which gives a number of hours of reading...

                              • Add support for marking items as favourite, as well as showing favourites in their own list (like unread)

                                I'm sure burn after reading was once a good read it later client, but as a pocket client it doesn't even support some basic features.

                                  I notice an excessive battery drain on my Lumia 920 and the phone gets really warm. I suspect the ad component. Is this a known issue?

                                    • Portrait mode on Windows 8 / Windows RT application

                                      I'm using a Surface RT. To read an article, I think it would be better if we can use the tablet in portrait mode. As well it could be interesting to be able to change the font size.
