|Because if you haven;t you are in for a treat!
Well ... if you are a masochist it'll be a treat. Honestly, it's worse that Edge in windows, and that takes some doing.
I'm reading the same book on two devices: the Wookietab (with Win10 Edge, which turns out to be a pretty good epub reader) and the Nexus 7 (with FB Reader, which is also a pretty good epub reader). The Nexus is portable so it fits in my pocket and I can read while waiting for Herself to finish doing whatever it was that was so essential I had to come along. The Wookietab is more comfortable when I'm at home (as well as having a much better battery life)
But ... it's a small pain because I have to manually sync the two and they don't use the same system: Edge uses "percent read". FB reader uses page number - which varies according to font size, understandably.
So I had a brilliant idea: install Edge for Android. They even communicate, so I can probably "share" the book if I am careful.
Oh gawd, I wish.
It's slow. Very slow. Much, much slower than Chrome on the same device, and (despite four cores to play with) it locks up while loading it's home page until the load is complete. And those are some pretty big pictures of Chris Evans it has decided to serve me whether I want them or not.
"Sign in with your MS account and you can share!" Ok.
"How do you want your verification code sent?" OK. Email.
Get email on desktop. type code on tablet.
Wait some more.
"Now go to your PC and Settings...phone...and follow instructions" Sigh. OK.
"Enter phone number". Don't have one, it's a tablet, not a phone. Enter phone number.
Get a text with a long link. Sigh again, and bodge up some way to get link to tablet (via Google Calendar which shares seamlessly across four devices)
Paste link into chrome. MS open Google play to offer me a pile of bloatware I don't want.
Go back to Edge. There's a new button! Press it, and ... the current tablet page appears on the Wookietab. No matching button on Wookie tab to go the other way.
Microsoft, do me a favour. Sit down with Chrome and a couple of Android devices and look at how well they all work together. Marvel at how it seamlessly shares calendar, Contact, bookmarks, browser history between them.
Then sit down with your own POS offering and try to work out why you are losing the mobile war on every front you try ... FFS!
