Very useful, but could stand several improvements

Please add ability to add notes to highlighted text. Also, add additional highlight colors.

App could be life changing once bugs fixed

3
I love how I can just file away articles that would otherwise be forever-open tabs into Pocket. However, it’s consistently buggy on iOS. The pause button doesn’t keep track of where you are. When you see your article playlist, you can’t scroll down. It gets stuck. The app freezes about four times a day. I still use it and pay for it because I have no other option though. Other friends who told me about Pocket have the same issues so I know it’s not my phone.

TTS function does work

3
"Pockets listen feature turns any news story, article, or blog post into a hands-free, eyes-free learning experience." But it doesn't. Most the articles I share to pocket are supposedly not identified by pocket as articles or something? Lol, it's weird and it won't speak the articles to me because of that. The main reason I got pocket is for the TTS, especially on my Android devices, since they don't have the handy 2 finger swipe from the top of the page to read the content out like iOS does. Unfortunately it's the same on Android. I'd give a full 5 stars if pocket would do as it says in its description and speak my articles to me. The whole articles, of course. This app would be perfect!

Can’t Edit Link Titles

4
I really love this app for saving webpages to read later. My only complaint is that you can’t rename a link’s title. If the page title isn't correct/good for a link, there is no way for you to fix it. I feel like this can be a pretty major issue, and I really hope they add this capability.

TTS buggy, freezes

3
This has my favorite go-to application for years to store and read documents aloud -- but lately it is having trouble! When I try to read a list of documents it will freeze the documents and lock the entire application so I have to restart it. Other documents can't handle pockets' own TTS engine and I have to use iOS TTS. This means you constantly have to interact with the app and can't trust it to play a list of documents while you drive or exercise. Given that this problem has persisted for months with no solution, I've started to look for a substitute that is more TTS stable. If pocket fixed this bug I'm very happy to stay.

Favorite read it later app

4
Pocket is my favorite read it later app. It works well with lots of extensions for apps, browsers etc. Two things still need improvement though: for one, sometimes photos of images won't save when saving an article. This way they are missing from the offline version. Also, when switching from portrait to landscape mode while reading and back to the other mode, the reading position will not be maintained. When those two annoyances are fixed, it'll be five stars.

Folders?

2
Hi, Overall it’s a good app, well designed, nice user interface, however it’s frustrating to me that there are no folders. I do not like using tags and do not want to use tags to organize my content. I want to create folders for different topics and organize that way. It’s the best app of its type, however I feel that it is severely hindered by the lack of an option to use folders. I hope that this changes in the near future.

I never stop adding articles and I never have to go without them when I switch. Pocket stays even without updates. LOVE IT! Pocket never gets rid of your stuff. Never charge you.
By Electic Wizard

Great app. Still room for improvement.

5
I enjoy this app! However, I think it would be increasingly useful to include a tab or some form of indication of which articles we have read — saved or not — as to keep track. Other than that, thank you for the amazing app!
