I had really high hopes for this app. The reviews on it were great and I often find articles that I want to read, but need to save for later. So the idea that I could save all of those things onto one app was a godsend. Come to find out, I have to pay just to search for something that I haven’t already found on the app. Which made the whole app completely useless for me. If I’m not browsing on this specific app and saving articles I find on here, I can’t use it at all unless I want to pay more. I’ll just stick to saving the links in my notes, that’s free.
I use this app all the time and especially when I’m flying , it all downloads to my phone and I simply erase the story after reading and regain the space on my phone, great idea, thank you very much.
In the spoken article feature, please include the ability to scroll through the text to determine where the voice should be reading.
Great app. I like the new read aloud feature using text to speech but wish you could change the parameters, such as voice. One annoyance: even though I have "show scrollbar" turned on in preferences, it still does not show the scroll bar in the main list screen. Makes it very hard to see where you are when you have a long list. I also wish there were a way to delete articles within the article view screen rather than having to go back to the list view (didn't we used to be able to do this?). Makes it easier to accidentally delete the wrong article!
No true black theme for iPhone X. Pocket should be ashamed they’ve taken this long to implement such an obvious feature. Apple should remove this from the store until this is fixed.
Often you see an article online that interests you, but you lack the time to read it now, then can’t find it again later when you do. Pocket allows you to clip and save articles in one place so you always have something interesting to read.
This is a useful app, but when I go to the recommended stories tab, many of the articles don’t open unless I click the “open in safari” tab. Annoying.
Saves paper, diversifies reading, engages gray matter, makes the issues of being offline and needing more light moot, provides more substantial use of time besides playing electronic games, makes reading more bite-size, and all that without things getting heavier nor bulkier than your cellphone -- what's there not to rave about!
I don't know what I'd do without this glorious app. In a world of essential tools to organize, entertain and complete your life, I highly recommend the Pocket app in the top five of your infinite list of never-ending useful applications. I use it everyday. It's quite addictive! I organize countless articles, videos, bits of information from all over the internet in one easy to navigate and highly efficient place and the most important detail of all. The freaking app never let's me down. I can't say the same for a lot of the other apps. This one does its job and allows you to enjoy its purpose without bugs, crashes, or anything else that'll get in the way of your happiness. Great job guys! Suggestion to the creators of this wonderful app. If you ever decide to make any significant changes... Don't you dare. Create a second app and call it Pocket II. Don't mess with perfection. It's the demise of most great products. Ain't broke, don't fix it! Footnote: Any chance we can get a search and scroll feature on the widget, so we can locate links without going directly to the app?
I feel that there are many articles that are interesting to me. The app and emails show me good choices for my interests. The articles are well written and instructive and interesting. I’m a big fan of Pocket. Easy to save articles for reading.
