One of the most requested features in Stacks For Instapaper was to be able to add a bookmark from Internet Explorer Mobile. Unlike the Pictures or Music hubs, the Share menu in IE is only available to the built-in applications. Which leaves 2 solutions:

- Use a special email address which you can find in the Extras page  (http://www.instapaper.com/extras – section “email links”), and send the bookmark to Instapaper this way

or

- use a special bookmark in IE. Here’s a detailed how-to. (this method is only available on Windows Phone 7.1 aka Mango)

  • Still in Internet explorer choose “add to favorites”. Here you can change the Name and paste the bookmarklet in the Web Address field.

 

add it to IE

  • When you want to add an article to your Instapaper account choose favorites and select the “bookmarklet ” favorites created in step 3.

browse to a websitechoose the bookmarklet favoritesaved!

  1. Open Stacks and you will see the new bookmark !

in stacks!

    Instead of sending a mail you can also share it via Onenote – just as a sidenote :-)
    Otherwise nice idea, thanks for sharing!
