  • Wonderful pocket of my reading collection

    I have been using Pocket for a long time. It had become the only reading collection.
  • Link to Google

    By fugly_mofo
    Google is the last company I want having anything to do with Pocket and my reading material. I don’t remember ever linking Google to Pocket yet the option exists of “unlinking” the two. Even worse, when trying to unlink I just get an error message and they stay linked. Get rid of google integration for god’s sake! Another much needed feature: a single mass deletion/clearing of my entire archive minus anything I’ve favorited or tagged. Pocket has been annoying from Day 1 making it harder to delete an item than Archive.
  • Five Star App Gets 3 for Subs

    The fact that this app went subscription was bad enough, but $44/yr.?! I don’t think so. And what makes it so frustrating is that it’s fabulous, but not $44/yr’s worth, for that it really deserves 1 star. UPDATE: Still three boos for going subscription, and, the amount that you’re charging for the features that are added is most definitely not worth it. (And now, the reason you lost another star from me.) I just moved a library of links from Raindrop.io to Pocket and I think I’m sorry I did that. Two things I must have: 1) The ability to edit the titles of each item. When I’m browsing in Safari and save a URL to Pocket, it’s not unusual for the bolder title to read “Home”. I want to be able to edit that. 2) I want to be able to use Notification Badges, but for this to be useful to me, I must also be able to mark all items as read [in bulk]. I want get into why that’s important to me, but it is. Raindrop.io has these two and very basic features. I’m currently shopping for other options, unless I hear that Pocket is going to get back in the game. Started out with a great concept, but clearly not a lot of good follow-through.

  • Doesn’t Work

    By Uxdude
    App failed on the very first article I tried to listen to (an insanely long New York times article that I didn’t want to read, but was more than happy to have read TO me). Got about 8 min and 20 sec into the article and then the app just stopped reading. The progress bar was still going. However, there was no sound. The app simply stopped reading and would go no further. Tried multiple times but the voice stopped reading in the exact same spot every time. FAIL. Uninstalled.
  • Super handy app

    By CalifDude
    Still one of my favorite apps and it keeps getting better. Some of my favorite features: auto dark mode for nighttime reading, listening to articles, and highlighting text. Pocket is such a great way to save articles and other content. Kind of like a virtual scrapbook that lets you keep anything. Makes life easier. There’s one bug I noticed. If I select a tag from the menu, it doesn’t find any tagged articles in my archive. The easy work around is using the search feature. It brings up all tagged articles beautifully.
  • Horrible update

    By Vickyvicki
    Can't read articles while listening & can't listen articles offline. Very horrible update!!!! I request developer to bring back previous version of listening offline while reading it.
  • Love but have a few feature requests

    4
    By Muhammad oli
    The audio reads of my articles would be way more helpful if I could read along at the same time. The reading right now sounds too unnatural for me to rely it without the accompanying text. Secondly, I use My List as an inbox of articles I haven’t read yet and I usually tag articles before I’ve read them. Once I read an article, I archive it. I would think other people use Pocket the same way and would love if my archived articles still appeared in the tagged folders, and were simply archived form My List.
  • Version 7 is a disaster

    1
    By themoneyman10
    New app is buggy. The UI is slow and has way too much spacing making it a headache to go through a long list. The syncing does not work and you will keep seeing the same stories reappear. Typical case of devs having nothing to do so they screw up everything instead.
  • Want to read and listen at the same time

    By ThantZin Lynn
    I tried the app and I really love it. My favorite feature is that I can listen to the articles. It’s very helpful for someone like me who is lazy to read. But I recommend is that the reading function is not as perfect as human. So please give us an option to read in case we don’t understand some part of the listening.
