  • Notifications not showing up in Settings

    By Michael Adkins
    Generally a great app, but I recently tried to turn on the badge and push notifications and was not able to. Whenever I went out to the Settings app to enable it, the available toggles for Pocket did not include one to enable notifications.
  • They abandoned the Mac version

    By Nick Trell
    I’m unInstalling this since they obviously don’t care about the Mac version. I have Mac App Store apps set to update automatically. So these clowns decide to send an update that only supports High Sierra. No warning about this and they didn’t do anything to check to see what OS you are running. I have several reasons why I have not updated to High Sierra. This app should have never been allowed to update on Sierra and below. Very poor experience; will never use anything by these amatures. I’m uninstalling it from my Mac and iPhone.
  • Great idea, buggy app

    By Wonderbread01
    I love pocket but the app pisses me off: Downloaded articles sometimes just open as a blank page. Not able to long press a link and open context menu when cell phone has service (need to click link and then press plus sign on the bottom), context menu only appears up when cell has No Service. Very strange design choice. Unexpectedly laggy to press the check mark button on an article. Going to Archive view is awkward.. app still says My List at the bottom but that tab is showing Archive instead of My List. Left nav doesn’t open when you do a swipe from the left side of the screen.
  • Great app for bookmarking

    By Freaaal
    I use this app to bookmark sites so I can visit them later, across my devices. It works great for this, though I wish there was a way to create folders inside the app. I would love to have the ability to separate articles, tutorials, reading, etc.

  • Does not save NY Times articles

    By Trksak
    Just realized today that I could not save a NY Times article using Safari. After loading the article via their app, I clicked on the box with the upward pointing arrow and chose Pocket to save the article (as I did with many other articles today). I went immediately to Pocket - nothing! Why? 1/10/18 update: Pocket now asked me to login every time I try to use it, even when I AM logged in. I have to log out and log back in to use it! I was told that I’m in the top 5% of Pocket users. Looks like that is not going to continue if this keeps up.
  • Works well for what I use it for

    By AlixInWinterland
    I mainly download news articles from mainstream sources and short stories (think web novels), and I've loved all the features this app has. I've been a user since before you guys changed the name from Read It Later to Pocket, which... feels like a long time. Granted, Ive never gotten premium because the basic functionalities fit my needs, and some of the related ads/articles suggested to me are actually interesting. Offline viewing works; I don't see the point of putting it onto an icloud as a backup, as another reviewer pointed out- isn't that want the permanent library premium feature is for? I do wish that the dark mode could get darker though - I also turn on night mode and set it to the lowest brightness when I read in bed and it never feels dark enough. One thing I would like is bulk tagging and/or bulk re-adding articles from my archive. It wouldn't even have to be on both mobile and web - just web would be fine, since it's probably easier to do there. (I'm not sure if this is a premium feature already - if it is I'd like to know!) Thanks for making this app, even if this thanks is years overdue!
  • No longer immersive.

    By Seth Chicago
    New iPhone X update means there is a grey bar that goes over the top in article view. With a dark background, this is very distracting, since it’s lighter than the page, and therefore, emits more light. Imagine if your tv letterboxes in white rather than black— it would make it harder to focus on the screen. For an app that advertises immersion, this was a queer choice. Please bring back a full screen experience.

    Pocket is my favorite offline reading app and is nearly perfect for my needs. I’ve had it for years and have been in the top 1% of readers since they’ve been giving out the title. I have two small issues that I’d like to see fixed. One, I can't get the badge count to work and I'd like to be able to see how many articles I have left to read. Two, sometimes when trying to read something in article view I find the whole article hasn't downloaded. Fortunately, I have dozens of things to read at any given time so I just go to the next article and download the previous article again once I’m able. These things are more annoying then anything, but they’ve been here for a while and still aren’t fixed so 4/5 stars.
