Xmarks for Windows Store Is Here!

Xmarks is officially ready for Windows 8 and Windows RT, with the Xmarks app now available in the Windows Store! 

Xmarks for Windows Store is a standalone app, similar to our other mobile apps. Since the modern IE 10 browser does not support plug-ins, Xmarks is not directly integrated into IE. Xmarks can launch sites from your bookmarks, but can not sync with IE favorites.

Available features:

  • Supports Windows 8 and Windows RT. 
  • Syncs with your Xmarks account, so you have all your favorites with you. 
  • Use full screen to see all your favorites, and browse by folder.
  • Handy snapped mode lets you run Xmarks side-by-side with IE or another browser
  • Search charm support (and built-in search box in snapped mode) for quick bookmark searches. 
  • Open remote tabs from your other browsers. 
  • Share URLs from IE or other apps into Xmarks using the Share charm, which then syncs with your Xmarks account.

More improvements to come!

This is the first Xmarks release for Windows Store, so let us know what you think in the comments below! 


  1. I wish you would extend the 'Share Folder' feature with a layout like this (Win 8 Retro Style)... Especially the create widget (for a blog?!) standard script looks outdated and not 'sexy' at all.
    Kind of a 'skin' or 'template' to share with other users? This would have a big marketing effect too!

  3. Nice start, good to finally see something new with Xmarks.
    I would give it a try on my Win8 notebooks if:
    - The list was a more readable - going through the bookmark folder hierarchy.
    - Sharing could be used. Sorry, this is probably a problem of Microsoft's. Guess the sharing charm don't see IE10 as FF is default browser (and that will definitely not pass through).

  4. We need Xmarks for Opera! They're switching to WebKit, now is the perfect opportunity.

    1. It still doesn't look like they added a local bookmarks API, which is what was holding up Xmarks in the first place.

  5. Good to know that xmarks is officially here for windows 8 and windows RT. But there still remains some limitations, that means that developers like iPad app developers need to work more on that.
