Reviews

Love This App!

5
Pocket is great. Typically I only write a review if I have used an app long enough to go through several updates and not had any issues. I have been using Pocket for several years. It is one of my favorites. If I come across an article or video I want to read or watch and I am short on time I know I will have it for later after quickly saving it. If it’s a keeper then I archive it and know it’s not going anywhere. Highly recommended this app.

Less Documents & Data

3
I love what I can do with pocket, but it needs to use less documents and data. Instead of downloading all the images and files associated with weblinks, it needs to only store the urls for sharing. When I download the app, it begins to download way too much data and takes up 150 MB of storage on my phone through Documents & Data alone. I love that the app is such a small size, but I cant keep the app on my phone because of the useless data that it takes up.

Crashes CONSTANTLY when using TTS

2
I’ve used this app for years and sincerely wish I could change my review back to five stars, but it will not stop crashing when I use the text to speech feature (the ostensible new focus of the app as of about a year or two ago). I will open the app and start playback for an article, on average, four times in a row before it will actually provide a smooth audio playback of my list using the iPhone built in engine (using Amazon’s upon the original retooling of the app was laggy, artificial and ate up mobile data). It may be that I’m playing articles at 3.2x speed, but that shouldn’t be an option if the app can’t handle it. I’ve been using Pocket for about four years and would gladly amend my review back to five stars if I can listen to articles without the app crashing again and again and again.

Good app, Convenient to add things to pocket from other devices

5
I enjoy this app because I take the subway daily with no Internet connection. So it’s good to be able to read articles from everywhere on my phone. Can you add a highlight feature? I can’t figure out how to highlight a whole sentence, just a word. That would be great. Thanks. Also the feature where it will read the text to you in a robot voice has never worked for me ever. Thanks in advance.

Pushes paid content

1
You can’t stop a flood of paid subscription-only publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post and other subscription only news services. I’m switching to another news service.

A great app but

1
This app has a lot of good features, a pretty nice design and great performance, but lately I found a very annoying problem that ruins the app for me, I use the app mainly to save educational articles on the web, lately I found that many of the saved articles are missing a very important pictures, I tried using instapaper with the same pages it gave me a perfect result, I hope the development team respond to this issue and solve it ASAP.

Finally fixed!

2
The last update crashed the app. I can’t open the app. I can’t access it because it doesn’t open. No word from the developers when it will be fixed. They are aware of the problem. Now the app takes up memory on my phone, but doesn’t function. May 19, 2020 they did an update that fixed the app. After weeks of not being able to open it... I can finally open it again! May 20, 2020 I can’t get to my suggested stories. I open the app, try to scroll through my suggested stories and the app kicks me out and closes down.

A genuinely great app when it works, but...

2
The app has not made peace with Dark Mode. I don’t want to follow the system mode settings. Even when I manually change it, if I leave the app and comeback, it switches back to the Dark Mode. It is a great experience on the iPad when it works.

Great for saving long reads

5
Pocket is awesome for saving articles you find on the web and in most news or social networking apps (just use the share sheet ⬆️ > ‘pocket’). Love the new ‘listen’ 🎧 feature to hear saved articles read by a decent Siri-like voice—great for multitasking or commuting.
