Bad update 4/5

Really nice but why did you remove the continue later fallback, it's frustrating to have to start the process over again of it doesn't work
Uses Edge regardless of my default browser 2/5
Links always open in Microsoft Edge on my computer regardless of what I set my default browser to. It’s extremely annoying that Microsoft doesn’t respect my browser preferences. If I wanted to use Edge, I would send Edge as my browser.
In addition to links, you should be able to send other photos and documents as well. The functionality in this app is extremely rudimentary.
The best way to get things to myself is still Facebook messenger to myself and opening it on my desktop computer, which is ridiculous.
Facing issue in application 1/5
By Abdul Haye
Hello development support team, I’ve installed continue on PC app in my phone but when I press share button all apps shown except this application
What is the issue with my phone or application?
Works...but there should be more hand-in-hand capability with iOS devices 4/5
I feel like this app is unoptimized for iPads since they directly scale up and yet, seems badly scaled. In addition, please add more features to this app from its sister app on the other platform.
Doesn’t seem to actually work. 1/5
Setup instructions, i.e. Step 2, kinda of insanely useless and the best I can tell iOS 11 doesn’t recognize the app has been installed.
Just be “continue on” 2/5
Why just continue on a PC? What about my ipad, Mac, etc? If I learn a behavior I’d like to stick with it. Now I have to bend differently and jumpy to a pc? Compute devices are ubiquitous.
too slow 1/5
10s to list my pc another 10s to send to my pc
Not working 1/5
It working as advertised. Went through all the steps and even tried the example they had, everything went fine. When I try to use it for real, it keeps telling me my device is not available. Bluetooth is connected and working on both ends, but it keeps saying the device is not available.
Only transfers web links 1/5
This would be a really useful app if it could transfer files, such as images, documents, etc. Instead, it only opens a webpage on another device. That is just not a useful product for me.
By that one guy 12093
The concept is awesome, but a little behind the times with implementing streamless work space between devices. The app takes forever to discover the desktop, and it only works about half the time. It will be a good app once someone actually makes it properly. Pick up the pace Microsoft.
So simple , so Great 5/5
Fast, and simple , works great
Good but half baked 4/5
Seems to only work for web browsing. And only in one direction. Need to share more stuff and also need to send from PC to phone. Maybe next version.
Unable to link PC with Phone 3/5
The app won’t find my PC and I don’t know how to fix it. I have the latest windows and went through all the steps on both devices. Cool concept though. I’m glad Microsoft included iPhones in this idea.
It’s ok 4/5
It does what it suppose to do but I really think that it’s almost nothing. For me you should be able to send photos and videos as well, then it would be a 5 stars app.
Edge only! Really? 1/5
I was pretty disappointed when my chrome browsing session had to be continued on my unused Edge browser. There is no way to have this work with Chrome. Yet another useless Microsoft new "feature".
Love it! 5/5
So awesome and really convenient! I hope they add Office apps soon.
Useless if dont use edge. Other than that, great 3/5
This app does what it says. Completely useless if you dont use Edge. Add default browser functionality. Come on
No phone? 1/5
My OS : Win 10 updated as of 11-22-17 and there is no phone tab in settings under the start menu... won’t work. Smh.
Can you make it so we can see windows screen from this device? :)
It’s nice but.... 4/5
Wish there was a setting to use chrome instead of edge
Continue on PC 1/5
Doesn’t work with Iphones
It works 3/5
By internet person
Pretty convenient feature and a nice app, but most of the time I want to go from PC to phone, not the other way around. Please add support to send things from Edge back to your Phone.
If I could do that, this app would be incredible
Visually confusing 1/5
If I were epileptic, the rapidly moving visual instructions would’ve triggered a fit. This is easily the worst explanation of an app I have ever seen. Back to the drawing board. The screens, features, methods of activation, shown on the app instructions do not match what I see on my phone after I have installed the app.
More features needed 3/5
You should be able to send photos to your computer through the share button photos, using this app.
Whenever I want a photo on my pc from my iPhone I have to email it to myself which isn’t always easy.
Whenever I want a photo on iPhone from my Pc, it takes forever for my iPhone mail app to update so I can get it from my email already
Browser options 3/5
I wish we could choose what browser we could open the page on, because not everyone uses Microsoft edge. But I like the idea.
Almost works 2/5
Only works with sending websites from safari; that’s it. No other instance where this appears in the share bar does anything get shared. Hence, it is of limited functionality.
It works perfectly but it opens it in Microsoft Edge 2/5
I’d 5-star but I want to use Google Chrome instead of Edge. And yes, Chrome is my default browser on PC. I really don’t like Edge by the way
Why can’t I do this backwards 2/5
Why can’t I share something from my pc to my iPhone, why does it only have to be something from my iPhone to my pc?
Needs work 2/5
Was hoping this was like apples airdrop which works perfectly. Can only send webpages. Every time I send a webpage it says errors but still allows me to open it on my PC. Needs a lot of work.
It doesn’t work 1/5
By Pkdlo man
Guess what..... it doesn’t work.
I was giving it a try but it refused to merge my accounts. No option to continue.
We're unable to complete your request
Microsoft account is experiencing technical problems. Please try again later.
Clunkier than handoff 4/5
But of course it has to be. The one thing I’d KILL for is an easy way to send files to and from the PC over a local connection, a-la airdrop.
Doesn't Work...Period. 1/5
Brand new DELL Latitude, new iPhone X. Added phone through Windows 10 says connected to the phone when you run app, however nothing happens after web page has been sent to PC.
By Harsh M Bhatt
Real life usefulness is mediocre...
We hit an error but we will save this in your pc’s action center.....every...time..
Go figure mircrosoft
Only Works with Edge 1/5
Hopefully this review saves you some time trying to get this to open links in your non-Edge default browser (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, etc.). It won’t. It only uses Edge.
Works great...but 3/5
Works well but I don’t use safari or windows edge so no real use for me till other browsers are supported.
Simply put. I was shocked.
Cannot link iPhone 8 to Surface Pro 4 1/5
Follow through every time and still my phone does not show up as linked on my PC.
Works Perfectly, One Small Bug 4/5
This app works flawlessly while using Safari on my iPhone and Edge on my Surface! However, once I tap to send the website to my PC, I get an error message on my iPhone. I get an error despite it working. This is strange, but it works!
Too limited 2/5
It send web pages to edge, but as everyone says not your default browser. Xand send office documents, even when in shared folders. What use is just opening the same web page?
Great solution for a unique experience 4/5
By Shahab Ab
I have a suggestion:
- History in app to keep track of what's been sent from/to where and when..
It works but only one way 4/5
By Techie tucker
It would be nice if it worked both ways but I'm guessing that is because it only wants to use the Edge browser which isn't available on iOS. You've already had this functionality if you use Chrome and it works both ways and synchs bookmarks.
Works perfectly. People just don’t get it.
Of course you computer has to be online.
It’s Almost instant on my computer, so it’s it’s slow, it’s because you have a slow computer. Ignore the 2-3 star ratings. They are just hating on things they don’t understand how to use. You have to be smarter than a raccoon to use this app.
Should be named “send to Microsoft Edge” 2/5
By Blue Zork
On the PC, the default browser setting is not respected; the web page always opens in Microsoft Edge. I’ve only used the feature a few times, but received an error on my iOS device one of the times even though the page opened on my PC.
Works great, Just want the reverse now 5/5
This app works SURPRISINGLY WELL! Especially coming from Microsoft... The only thing now is we need the complimentary OPPOSITE (continue from PC on Phone). This would allow total fluidity of productivity. Especially if they could integrate that into their Edge browser app on iOS.
Works as advertised 3/5
It would be nice if the webpages opened in my set default browser instead of in only MS Edge. If that features happens then 3 stars becomes 4. I am knocking off a star for an error that has happened in every test page I’ve tried so far, after I send the page from my phone to my desktop, my phone shows that there was an error sending my page to the Action Center, but I have not experienced any errors. Just a slight delay.
Can’t search all devices 1/5
I have a surface pro 4 and a dell desktop under my Microsoft account and both of them are open, online with browser open. However, the app won’t be able to detect my surface pro. When I tried to send it to the desktop (which it detected), it immediately said an error occurred and couldn’t send it. Well, I’m not surprised.
When you have multiple Microsoft accounts... 4/5
Make sure to add the same Microsoft account to your phone and to your computer. I had some initial difficulties because I have twi Microsoft accounts and I was logged into one on one device and the other on the PC. Once I had added both Microsoft accounts to the PC I was able to start sending pages to my PC from my phone.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
I did the windows update and saw this. I was so looking forward to using this.
Downloaded the app and after 25 mins of wasting my time I’m deleting it.
