    • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Yammer Integration

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

              • 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.

                  • Pin an article in the home screen of Windows Phone.

                    It could be cool to be able to pin an article to the Windows Phone to show it quickly to a friend for example.
