I’ve been a user of Instapaper for years and am switching to Pocket since it is a Mozilla product. I like Pocket’s sleek display of text better than Instapaper, which looks clunky sometimes in its saved documents. The biggest problem, though, is the display themes/colors - very bright, very dark, or “sepia”, which is one step down from very bright. All of these hurt my eyes. “Sepia” could be darker or, better yet, add another dark option like Instapaper has that isn’t completely black with bright letters.
Excellent app to read and save news. I'm planning to buy a premium subscription when they add a translation feature within the same Pocket app and website.
love pocket! i’ve been using it for well over a year now, and it’s perfect as i exclusively use firefox but much prefer to lay back and read long pages on my phone. it’s always been amazing for me, but recently when i’m reading on my phone, the bar at the bottom that typically disappears when i scroll down won’t disappear anymore? this hasn’t happened in the past, and i have tried restarting my phone, closing out the app, and redownloading it but the disappearing feature only worked briefly while the app redownloaded my articles and then once all the articles were downloaded, it would not disappear on scroll anymore i hope this issue gets resolved soon, but overall, i am very grateful to pocket!!
This is where I keep all the reminders for those bits and pieces I need to read — this app makes being curious easier.
I am constantly searching through newsfeeds to find relevant articles. I’m interested in a lot of topics. And I love how I find an article that I want and I just hit share and put it in my pocket for later. Great app
App consistency is always a challenge. After all these years, Pocket just works. Saves and renders articles nicely and the tags are a must-have feature. Thank you and keep up the good work!
I would like the playlist tab moved without stopping the reading. I like to read the article while it’s being read aloud.
Pocket still does not allow you to edit the title of an entry. If the web page you’re saving has an uninformative or misleading title, or you simply want the privilege to decide for yourself, you are out of luck. Ridiculous. Otherwise a great app, but in my case a reject because of this.
Super useful for listening to everything you don’t have time to read or don’t want to read in a screen
Why do you need my contacts and all contact information?? Why do you need to collect and retain all the other personal information? Yeah, no thanks, live the idea of your app/service, but I unlike so many folks today, I actually value my privacy, data, and personal information. My life is not yours for profit. You should consider an honest business model.
